Lovely art. For the first time on ZX Spectrum we get vertical pixel-perfect scroll in full colour, that uses the full screen width. F**k the colour clash.

I have never thought that one day I'd see fluent scrolling of attributes!
OK, so this time it simply MUST be witchcraft!
Most impressive.

Overall, all the pieces - code/visual/audio - are coooooooooooool!

i was like WHAAAAT?! when this picture began its up and down sliding.
seriously, huge sensational technical achievement is here. it's so glad to feel that there are still something to invent.

How do you call this new effect? Attribute-scroll? Sure this demo only has one effect, but it's a world first (AFAIK), is executed really really well with proper graphics and music, and also amazing technical achievement of doing such a thing on a machine that doesn't have a raster interrupt.

Now, people are most likely gonna compete for who can do the biggest attribute-scroll, as it always is with such technical achievements.

first time on Speccy. How come that at the party technically perfect prod lost to some 'overdesigned' one?

@TomoAlien, I'm afraid that there won't be much competition for the size of scrolled area at 50Hz, because this is already close to the maximum for Pentagon and doing the same thing on classic models will reduce the area even further. Calling it an attribute scroll may be misleading (people will think that _only_ attributes are scrolled); maybe something like "colour-scroll" would work better. Anyway, since Kpacku did it first, let them worry about such details :)

Итак, пришло время разбавить сгущенку спермой. Что мы видим на экране?
Это не демо, это лишь часть демонстрации имеющая приятную надпись. И что? А где полноценный демо продукт от и до выложенный золотыми слитками с чукотки РФ? Нет!

Это дема незавершенная, как и все продукты этой группы. Есьб сильный кодер, есть музыкант и даже есть художник, а полноценной демоснтрации на 640 кб диска до сих пор нет. Снова кость, снова обглоданная кость.

По деме: в ней не происходит НИЧЕГо. Цветная картинка движеться верх и вниз? И что? ну пусть раз два она двигается но это блин что демо?

2. Нет привета главному демосценеру мира , то есть мне ААА. Типа всякой хуйне из под ногтей есть, а мне ААА нет. Получается что мнея словно не замечают. Хорошо, запомнил. ...

По поводу англиских букв, хватит имим тут писать, ведь ни хуя не понятно же.

Do you really not know the difference between filling screen with identical bytes and scrolling an arbitrary image? Awww, so cute.

You need to retire as a ZX Spectrum coder if you do not know the difference between the old and the new effect.

New is well forgotten old?

Information for the outsiders: it was widely believed that the colourful scrolling, as in "Satisfaction Megademo" linked by lvd, cannot be extended to full screen width, because the effect was implemented as 8x1 multicolour, and ZX Spectrum's fillrate is not sufficient to update the attributes quickly enough. The idea used in Alone Coder's intro is much closer to the home in that he uses two irregularly spaced screen switches per line of characters. Nevertheless, it is easy to compare Alone Coder's intro and this intro to know that someone is burning inside out with envy and is not interested in being reasonable or even fair.

Чтоб вам тут всем стало стыдно скажу что два года назад гражданин Титус показал мне эффект скоженный им в котором картинка гигаскрин цветная во весь экран (160 пикселей в высотуи 256 в длину), как простыня во все стороны со всеми изгибами. Не просто как тут верх и вниз а ваабще по всему экрану и влево и вправо и вверх и вниз и края как у тряпки с изгибами во все стороны.

Как бы вот. Чтоб понимали что работать надо а не спать по ночам.
Thanks for riskej for remembering most of abovementioned prods

Yeah, while the outsiders were 'widely believing', trefi just did that. Happy believing, outsiders :)

Was it about smbdy who's suffered recently from releasing some his work from a party on pouet? Because I can't otherwise judge that man's rubbish writings all over the pouet.

Well. Technical achievement and nice tune, but as a demo it is pretty boring...
