@fenarinarsa it's not just that:
it runs on A500, _and up._ Certain configs have timing issues; it detects them and flashes red or orange when that happens; then attempts to fix it.
_IN THE END SCROLLER_ it details this situation.
i.e. it LOGS issues and REPORTS THEM.
it is a trackmo. Meaning it uses the disk directly without using the OS. BUT. It has an OS "partition" (I don't know what it is doing I haven't examined the disk structure yet) and it contains a readme, readme.info (for when you load it with workbench loaded, you can see an icon and read it) and a program that verifies the integrity of the disk.
this is a freaking engineering marvel along with being one hell of a demo. I started watching on youtube. I am not finishing on youtube, this is going on a floppage and into my A500. _today._
@BillySmith @fenarinarsa This may be a bit... "Truck gets anal about something very close to his heart."
But. Here goes.
The Demoscene is _global._ I can point you to Mexican demosceners and their releases; last year had a most excellent party in Argentina (Flash Party) and Tokyo Demofest did something last weekend (as did Molvania, but that wasn't real ... it was done by Portugese sceners (: )
Also it's not hyphenated (:
You should _totally_ check out Fenarinarsa's Apple ][ Demo from revision ... 3 years ago? I hope it wasn't 3 years ago but ... sadly time flies ):
Having said that: Thanks! It's awesome to see that one again; 2011 had Human Traffic (Blueberry (Dane) and various Poles) and Shake off the Dust (Elude (Poles) and Massive (Skarla; Frenchmen and a Frenchman living in Quebec (: ) AND THE LAQUERER (video but oh my so good)
(Farfar's portrait of me. Before beard. (: )
Join us for Revision this year?
Here's Fenarinarsa's demo:
Also Revision signup:
I have heard of some... things coming up (which of course may not get completed in time) but you'll want to see it (:
Please join us, despite my being very "SOMEONE IS WRONG ON THE INTERNET" (:
@BillySmith @Truck I like a lot what mmcm is doing with joyful tunes like those
Actually i like a lot the ZX Spectrum music scene, which I find better than the Atari ST one. There are also technical considerations to take into account (file size, effects, AY replay frequency, how fast we can load/unpack effects).
Nice sounds. :D
Also, started having a dig through your YT channel.
There's a couple of musicians/physical-theatre-performer's that i met at London Hackspace, and they were doing live ChipTune gigs in East London. :D
If you give a shout on the mailing list, they'd be interested in chatting with you about your work. Very similar vibe. :D
It was one of the members of the London Hackspace that pointed me to the Subdream video.
He said that he knew some of the people taking part in the competition, and thought that i might appreciate that one. :D
Partially because of the fractals, but also from some of the discussions about the fractal nature of how materials are used in evolved systems. :D
Chewy conversations. :D
@fenarinarsa @BillySmith also (and yes I caught the replies in reverse order because I just was reading the stuff in my mentions, which are reversed order) I can ping the Russian speccy telegram group for musicians if you like.
That said, Gasman would be involved with both and he's more involved directly than I am, so - maybe I'll just ping the UK Allstars somehow and we see how that shakes out - and if the speccy folks need pinged I ping them later (:
