a pure textmode intro, dosbox fails with cycles set to "auto", better use fixed, video capture isn't accurate for smooth background scrolling ..
So lovely! ♥ Almost a bit wasted to release this into the wild ;) You could have waited for the next demo party

thx! unfortunately I've to rip gfx and music since we lack graphic artists & musicians, so the prod wouldn't fit compo rulz :(
sweet!

Nice textmode tricks.

It's not a problem if you actually ask people for permission to use their stuff (which IMHO you should be doing matter if you release into a compo or not) and properly credit everyone.

nice, but please forget about the adlib and do GUS next time

sweet choice of music, reminds me of the burntime soundtrack but could be any of his early 90s works i guess =)

Very nice! And Adlib is just fine, thank you, especially for an 8k intro. :) Hope you find some artists.. maybe in time for @party in June?

Nice textmode intro that I wouldn't think it's textmode.

Wasn't textmode supposed to use fixed charset? :O Mindblown!

enjoyable

thumb up for proper use of text mode. I personally never understood the point of text mode competitions that were limited to fixed char set and palette. Also I think Adlib is more appropriate for a 286 production than something like GUS. Hope you get some help with music and graphics next time.

In TMDC, yes, where it was a stylistic choice, but outside that, go nuts.

They were intentional boundaries. Without those, who cares if you're using text mode or 640x400 16c mode or whatever. I understand if that's not your cup of tea, but it was mine.

"out of range" on both S3 and NVidia (well, 78hz is too much for standard VGA, don't forget to switch pixelclock to 25 MHz if 8px wide fonts are used :), works flawlessy in DOSBox. awesome trickery!

also extra thumb for fucking up my NC panels after exit :D

oops, sry :) didn't know that with the pixel clock, thx for the hint .. I tried to catch all pitfalls (took me a lot of effort to let the dosbox start screen correctly fade out ;) .. on my corei lenovo notebooks and my pcs (with nvidia cards & intel hd) everything went fine .. even if I don't have a vintage 286 I test all my stuff under pure dos on modern hardware ..

oops, I did it again :D .. had to change the scan lines for that ..
Nice work!
Back then I've switched to 8pix fonts by using:
mov ax,01200h
mov bl,30h
int 010h

mov ax,03h
int 010h

and then forcing 400 lines ( was it 9 to 0x3d4 and 64 to 0x3d5?)

try this ;)
speaking of modern cards/igfx: connecting monitor via digital interface (and via VGA on post-Ivy Bridge(?) Intel iGPU, not to mention HDMI->VGA converters - anything that's not a native VGA) would limit refresh rate to monitor default (i.e if display native timing is 1920x1080 60hz everything under DOS would run at 60hz, even textmode)

Hey there ;) thanks for using my gfx ;-) I have absolutely nothing against it. In the future, if you'd like some original gfx for your prod just get in touch with me, here in Arise myself and Bimber are doing hires gfx all the time, it is for C64 but easily convertable to PC ;-) Nice prod!

thx, that explains why I didn't realize that I missed it .. will repair it soon, enough bytes left to 8k border ..

Nice! (i used 640x400 "text" mode for some intros in 1990s)

added a bug fixed release ! Bought a SPEA Mirage P32 from 1995 (S3) & TT801 soundcard with real OPL Chip (FM801) and tested the intro successfully on real hardware !
Heh (unexpectedly) nice crisp shapes in textmode.

bugfixed exe works perfect on real hw, thanks ;)
