Achievements unlocked! Excellent WTF moment when the scroller appeared over the 2nd image. Everybody for so afraid what else might come in the end, they read the full 3 minutes scroll text on the big screen. There are things, that only happen at Silly Venture. Extra kudos for releasing all the sources and extensive docs.

Thumbs up for a technical breakthrough in 2017!!!

Maybe someone should explain it in some better technical detail but I understood this demo introduces:

A) a new generic kernel-driven display mode called "HCM Mode 0". This is a 9 color mode with predictible CPU time left to do some realtime stuff.

B) a new sound-generation method called "Hardbass" which is a softsynth mode for Pokey's only true weakness - the bass. This is combined with standard RMT (Raster Music Tracker).

All presented from a guy who was active in the early 90s then disappeared :)
Thank you and welcome back Sandor of Hard!

not bad but perhaps a bit slow paced

Cool new graphics mode for the Atari 8bit, some nice pictures, music and effects, very long credits and greeetings part in the end however
