Just keeping it real at Revision 2015

The demo I have made together with Trixter, reenigne, VileR, coda, virt and Phoenix has won the oldskool compo at Revision 2015:

I will discuss some of it in more detail at a later time. Trixter has already done a global write-up of the demo. And reenigne has done a piece on the 1024-colour tweak, the mod player, some other stuff, and VileR has also done a piece on the new CGA colours.

(Update: I have done pieces on the sprite and polygon parts as well now, and some background info on overall development)

For now, I’ll just leave you with the comments in the #revision IRC channel at the time our demo was shown:

00:39 < yessopie> putting the color into color graphics adapter
00:39 <@[shd]> i gues something like changing the palette with everx x-th scanline
00:39 < AMiiiiiGAAAAA> the muzak is killing my nerves
00:39 <+KamikaTze> my ears hurts
00:39 < noby> KeyJ: that was listed in the platform details on the composlide indeed
00:39 <+Krill> cga over composite? o.O
00:39 < sylto> thanks for the explanation
00:39 < ne7> 🙂 u can do a lot with phasing sounds quick in 1bit 🙂
00:39 <+KeyJ> Krill: original CGA has a composite output
00:39 < platosha> is pal timing thing may be?
00:39 < kowalski> zx spectrum-like multicolor tricks? )

00:40 <@velo^aprx> http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=65336
00:40 < gizmo__> awesome
00:41 < Ham^Sfl> too much Alan Silvestri… GEMA alert!
00:41 < Ham^Sfl> 😀
00:41 < yessopie> Ham- I recognized that, too
00:41 <+vscd[NPL]> Seems they have computer which can beat our computers 😉
00:41 < platosha> hmm, artifacts…
00:41 < Sofa6434> 1bit musicdecoder
00:41 < Ham^Sfl> this is a great demo
00:41 < cyb> dosbox needs to be rewritten after this 😉
00:42 <+Harekiet_rev> well that was way more awesome then expected 🙂
00:42 < Sofa3554> !love
00:42 < anix> good shit
00:42  * SceneSat spots that Sofa3554 simply loooooves Hornet + CRTC + DESiRE – 8088 MPH! Ah, l’amour!
00:42 < gizmo__> wow wow wow
00:42 <+Harekiet_rev> noooo dosbox is fine….
00:42 < Ham^Sfl> I wonder if it would work on DosBOX (probably no)
00:42 < dexxo> great stuff, even with the pc speaker spasms
00:42 <+maep> ❤ virt
00:42 <+KeyJ> Ham^Sfl: no way
00:42 < joga> speaker’s supposed to taze you a bit
00:42 <+anti_> We talked about something like this before the BBSs started to die … I think … my brain … too long ago …
00:43 <+KeyJ> I would be totally surprised if that worked on ANY emulator, at all
00:43 <+vscd[NPL]> The last thing I made on my 8088 was Monkey Island 😉
00:43 < rIO_sK> Ham^Sfl: if I’m ight the trick isto use composite output artifacts, so i think not
00:43 < Ham^Sfl> KeyJ: they didnt emulate CGA to the required level
00:43 < noby> PEEEZEEEEE!
00:43 < corpsicle> nice
00:43 < wullon> Winner
00:43 < sylto> wowzerz
00:43 < scenept> brutal
00:43 <+KeyJ> Ham^Sfl: that (especially composite), and I guess they do some timing-sensitive stuff
00:43 < Ham^Sfl> great compos
00:43 <+OergWin98> Scgali: fucking great work
00:43 < joga> tight compos
00:43 < platosha> if it’s a pal encoding trick, i doubt dosbox would ever be capable to emulate it
00:43 <+OergWin98> you guys rock
00:43 < SaphirJD> holy hell, that one was epic
00:44 < gizmo__> fantastic
00:44 < legend_> epic compos
00:44 <+shaderpig> impressive!
00:44 < Piru> uh. compo overdose
00:44 <+KeyJ> racing the beam without interrupts = things gonna fuck up if the cpu speed is the slightest bit off
00:44 < Ham^Sfl> KeyJ: yeah
00:44 <+shaderpig> awesome compos today.
00:44 <+Harekiet_rev> the scroller texts were a bit unclear 😦
00:44 <+OergWin98> platosha: It somewhat emulates CGA color trickery, but surely not this awesome shit 😀
00:44 < ne7> fabulous 😀
00:45 < Salinga> awesome compos. 2015 was a VERY good year so far. 🙂
00:46 < [adam]> 🙂
00:46 < Raylight-PwL> Totally awesome!
00:46 < Cubed> Fantastic start, definitely feel inspired to make something now
00:47 < Sofa6434> Wondering if this can be topped in todays compoblock
00:47 < Toffeeman> Very good demos today.

    I knew one day, something beautiful would happen in CGA composite. I bet it was even more crazy in the audience when that ran. 🙂

    Great stuff.

    Seems like folks went crazy. heh.
