Intro, Sonic by Denatus

Remake and demake of my old 64kb PC intro. The original 64kb PC intro placed 3rd at "Remedy Party 95" which took place in Solnahallen Stockholm Sweden 1995.

  • Code by Denatus
  • Graphics by Denatus
  • Music originally by Silke but remade in Pico-8 by Denatus

Nice demake! I specially liked the plasma/fire effect!

Ooh, looks cool! Is there a video or a copy of the original demo?

@rnd yes! Right, I should have linked to it in the original post.

The dots part is hard to capture and in hindsight 26 years later I should probably had a bigger contrast between background and dots or made them bigger. They where kind of hard to see even on the big screen at the demo party. There are of course some part I would have liked to be better in the original but time ran out and I had to turn in the intro before the deadline.

Originally developed with Microsoft Edit and Borland turbo assembler on a 486 66 Mhz. Some custom scripts and tools made in Borland Pascal and Microsoft Basic to create include files for precalulated tables. Graphics painfully drawn in Deluxe Paint. Music was made by a friend in Reality Adlib Tracker and I used their player code in the intro.

Made a new capture that hopefully is a bit more clear.

Awesome demo! I guess the only thing left to make the situation even better would be to upload the original demo's executable for posterity, because I was unable to find it on the internet...

The intro is written in 16-bit code and won't run on modern 64-bit OS. It runs fine in DOSBox if you give it enough CPU-cycles.

Did a tiny edit in the "bars" section so that the colors look more like the ones in the PC demo.

That looked really nice!

When I started the project I didn't know about the 2nd palette. Learned about that during development. I should have gone back and added that trick to the first part. Only did that to the background to make it less boring black.
