Nice MS-Dos demo

Does run well on 386 (even low end judging by the dosbox cycles). Has few nice effects. I always envision CGA as this 4 color cyan/magenta hell, but I know it's really more than that. I would have thought this is an EGA demo just by screenshots.

Uses the 160x100x16 "mode" trick of 80 column text set to 100 rows (first 2 char lines only), and left/right half block chars. Not the best palette for plasmas, but the default black/white/cyan/magenta palette is nice for vaporwave. :) You could also do an 80x100xmore-than-16 "dithered" color mode using the halftone characters.

Good music, not new but I assume Void was ok with it.

Any chance for a fixed version that would also work on VGA-cards? :)

well done! tested it with PCem 13, runs even on a 286/8Mhz with 512kb RAM .. lot of CGA snow in the emulation, maybe different on real hardware ..

Thanks for the votes! This was rushed (of course). I haven't had a chance to test it on real hardware yet, hopefully over the xmas break. I think it needs a fast 286 - I gotta work on getting those routines faster though. I'm interested in exploring CGA a bit more and want to try some dithering tricks using the halftone characters! I have a final version with a bunch of optimisations which I'll get uploaded asap.
