I guess that you have already seen the great demo “Logon’s run – 3D meets the aging bits” by Overflow / Logon System, which was released on the Revision 2017 demoparty in Saarbrücken / Germany. Norecess worked together with Overflow and released a “Making of” on his site in which all the techniques, which were used in the demo, are explained and how they were evolved until they reached the final state. Be sure to read it, because it is a great way to understand how this great demo works and maybe you get an idea for your next production :-). You can find the article on Norecess homepage.
Norecess released a new version of his SDCard HxC Floppy Emulator Manager which works on the Amstrad CPC 464 and 664 now. If you already own a HxC floppy emulator, this tool is a must have for you. You can get the disk image or ROM image here.
- 464 / 664 support
Norecess released the source code of his demo Phortem and his development environment for the Amstrad CPC called Phactory. Both projects are not maintained anymore, so if someone is interested to take over… :-). You will also find Ceds graphics and Arnoldemus track loader in Phortem.
You can download the source code from Norecess’ website.
Norecess released a new and fully rewritten version of his HxC Floppy Emulator Manager. It contains a new user interface, better support for the HxC floppy emulator, some critical bug fixes and the possibility to exit to BASIC. If you already own a HxC floppy emulator, this tool is a must have for you. You can download it from Norecess homepage.
- completely rewritten using Phactory IDE
- compiled against latest SDCC 3.X (was 2.X)
- new user interface (thanks Ced!)
- added better support of HxC device (detection, release..)
- returns to BASIC instead of resetting the machine
Condense released a new demo called Phortem. It contains very nice effects, very colourful pixel art (and a lot of them), trackmo style, great transitions and a music loader. They also detect if you use an Amstrad Plus and choose another colour palette for it. Watch it on real hardware – if possible. You can download it from Pouet.net (don’t forget to vote) and at the end of this posting.
Amstrad Plus version:
