Rhino released a new graphics tool for the Amstrad CPC called Perfect Pix. Perfect Pix supports 3 different extended graphics modes with extended colours and resolutions:

  • Mode R
    • Up to 384×272 pixels and 16 freely selectable colors from a palette of 27.
  • Mode B0
    • Up to 192×272 pixels and 136 colors from a palette of 378.
  • Mode B1
    • Up to 384×272 pixels and 307 colors, divided into color 0 + up to 34 palettes of 9 colors per line.

Perfect Pix comes with an awesome documentation (english and spanish) and of course with the source code to use the pictures in your own production. If you need graphics for your next project, be sure to have a look at it. You can download the latest version from Pouet.net and the CPCWiki forums.

The 10th annual Scene.org awards results were published and the Batman Group won 3 prices with their great demo “Batman Forever“. It won in the categories “Best demo on an oldschool platform”, “best technical achievement” and “public choice”. But that’s not all, they also ranked 3rd in “best graphics” and “breakthrough performance”. So a big congratulation to the Batman Group, thanks for showing what is possible to do with an Amstrad CPC and for the entertaining demo.

Here is the video of the demo again (but of course, it looks better if you watch it on the real hardware):

The Revision demoscene party took place in Saarbrücken / Germany  during easter 2011. On 26th April, a report about the Revision was aired in the TV programme “Aktueller Bericht” of the SR (Saarländischer Rundfunk). The best about the report is, that the Amstrad was mentioned first and you will see scenes of the Batman Forever demo. Btw, the two guys in front of their CPCs are Eliot and Hicks…

Here is the video:

[UPDATE:] You can also find the video in the SR Mediathek (choose “Treffen der Demoszene” in the menu of the player).
