runs on vic20 with 16kb memory expansion.
doesnt display properly with vice>1.19
doesnt display correctly when recorded or with lcd-tv (vic20 has no grey)
Really, so what you are saing is that one has to have a piece of obscure hardware to enjoy this one?

Cap it, captain!

capturing it prooves also very difficult... to begin with, it requires 50Hz capturing, and as shown by going lowres/trsi, postproducing to convert 25Hz to 50Hz is also a difficult task..
Vic20 isn't as common as c64, but it's hardly obscure.

I enjoyed watching this one at BP, and I'll probably transfer it for viewing on real hardware sometime :_)

Is it really some kind of trick to display a greyscale?...I cant afford a real Vic20 to find out...

Everything new for Commodore VIC-20 is desirable. :)

Ran it on my VIC20 connected to old CRT, and I didn't see any greyscale trick, just switching between black and white each frame...?

sdw: indeed, thats how the demo was meant to be..
nice trick, I bet it doesn't flicker with a monitor/tv of vc20 age (with slow phosphor)? :)
