Oh my GOD - What a classic!!

When I first saw this demo I just couldn't believe my eyes. In the early days this demo really was "State-of-the-art".

Yeah, and that part with rasters, first time i heard a mod sound like that.

Nobody make theses bob's moving like that.

I wonder what they do now.

Design kick some ass
Fonts, colors are so nice, scroll is smooth as hell, great tunes, innovation.

[A]They made something really unbelievable.[/A]

I looooooove you Dragons !
this is really Sumthing..

lots of fake effects, actually only fake effects, but very cool!!!
rulez added on the 2003-11-05 20:15:26 by elkmoose elkmoose
I believe that they were the first to discover this effect unless there was an attempt on C64 before for example.

Well, Sebastiaan Lentfert (Zzzax) fans, you can download the marvelous soundtrack from the unlimited bobs part:

track is called "ZZZAX SPACESHIP505"

--> Expressions.lha

Play it with "BSplay" (by Brian Postma)
Beware, I got weird notes frequency (is it XP...)

Ps: I finnaly listenning to "soulmachine" (scrolltext), i don't like ;)
StanZ: cant play the tune. It gets loaded and then nothing happens when tryung to play it. Too bad, this tune was really good.
added on the 2004-06-18 13:26:19 by keops keops
Keops, now I play the tune with"Oldsk00l" (Winamp DLL plug-in) too ;)
Yeah, I should have thought about it since I already had a lot of BP tunes on my hd, I forgot about them. And I just discovered that I actually already had Zzzax_SpaceShip505.BP
I Guess I really need to wake up today ;)

Still, I did not manage to use BSEditor, there must be something wrong with my pc.

This music still kicks ass. 12 years ago I used to launch that demo just to listen to it :)

We liked it so much at that time that we even released an Atari port of this effect, Corsair was kind enough to give us the exact formulas he used in his Amiga version :)

We even made a Java version a few years ago.
added on the 2004-06-18 14:29:06 by keops keops
That music you're talking about is a conversion of a 70's synthtune also called spaceship 505 (or spaceship sos don't remember).

(thx exxos for the exact refs)
added on the 2004-06-24 14:43:25 by keops keops
Thank you to have supplied all this good information!
I can't believe it lol.
I'll search the mp3 tonight.
I like the ST version too, by Tao.
Called "force" :) It seem himself forget the author and mainly remember the Dragons megademo :P
Hell yes ! The Atari port, part of the vodka demo, is imho the best I've seen on ST.
Your java demos are so sweet =)
/me fan
perhaps the best megademo i've ever seen

Corsair (Yo Yankee!)
Mr Video (Sup man)
Megablast (Whereever you are!)
Moby (Dragoooons!)
Foxy (!!)

The reboot sequence said :
"Never forget us ... It is now time to turn off you computer (we think it is an amiga right)"

20 years later we have it running on various platforms ... Odd.

Major greets to all our friends and supports!

Keep on enjoying old and new demos ;)

Rules big time. Nothing more to say. Respect!

a good megademo
rulez added on the 2010-10-06 17:54:38 by gibs gibs
This demo blow my mind, and made me a big fan of Corsair !! So impressive code, and it's the first time I've heard Moby music !!
Copper bars, fantastic beautiful bobs (and well unlimited), lots of scroll and sure we need to switch off the amiga for really quitting the demo ! Perfect one !

At that time my god was Promax and Slayer, after seeing this demo Corsair immediatly join them !!
rulez added on the 2010-12-07 19:45:34 by skp skp
Holy guacamole boyz... I just watched this now nearly 20 years after I wrote the code... Whoa... so many memories coming back. I remember spending countless hours coding trying to get everything right: the colors, the transitions, the scrollings, the rasters and of course the unlimited bobs (hehe). Good old times for sure.

And seeing all you guys' comments really makes me feel good. I knew I was up to something at the time but I never really realized people like it that much. Thanks a bunch boys.

wooow! was looking for this for ages!! definitely a masterpiece of early amiga days!
don't know why, but I've somehow always thought that it was released earlier than that (somewhere in 1989).

Thanks again to Buckethead for sharing this production here.
This was the result of a long work from my brother (Corsair).
We were so proud to release this first great production.

Salut Mister Video! Welcome to pouët :) can you tell a bit of the demo? That dragon picture for example, or the font (i love it!) and bob of the unlimited part ... So glad you visited the site after all this years =] PS: Un plaisir aussi d'avoir vu les commentaires de ton frère ainsi que Foxy...
Always loved this one and I always will! DRAGONS!!! \o/ :)

Also, my first Amiga assembler was MasterSeka 1.82, modified by Corsair/SkidRow (at that time). Still have it on my disk (both: megademo & asm, just for nostalgia).
