Containing some more or less intersting intros/demos and one from mayhem called paracetamol which features (afaik) the first ever so called "interference" effect (and maybe the best).

Wow so much demos I've never seen.
The AFL demo is awesome...
The Rebels is so fucking cute :)

(nice to see the first ever interference effect ;))
hmm, imho, when you add a pack, you should add screenshot of the packmenu, not of the content... =)

Wow.

I am the code of the Mayhem Paracetamol demo from all those years ago, and I've been trying to track it down ever since. My searches in the past didn't lead anywhere but today I stumbled across this -- fantastic! This really brings back some memories.

I must have written this in about 1990, and I got the idea from the graphics used in the UK Channel 4 TV show, "The Word". I realised the effect might translate well to the Amiga and spent a sleepless night wondering how it would look. This was indeed the first time the effect had ever been created on the Amiga (to my knowledge, anyway).

I created the circles graphics in DPaint (I've no idea why I didn't create them in code!) and even while I was dragging the 1-bit graphics around on top of each other, I could see this was going to be something special. I was extremely pleased with the end result, and terrified that someone else would release a demo with the same effect before I could finish it!

24 hours later (and after countless games of Lemmings from the demo version) it was released.

And now nearly 20 years later, I've finally seen it again. One day I should try to get an archive of all these on my web site (at www.adamdawes.com).

Many thanks to hitchhikr for uploading this!
