Great idea, does it read it's own source code as a text I guess?

The earliest i can remember that an introish production showed its own code is Dragondrop (2014) but they clearly didnt boldly double the code for the packer xD Cool idea, great execution

Many thanks!

After working with some compression related stuff during the last years it was easy for me to think like a LZ77 compressor with entropy coding and try to repeat code in. ;) So after adding features, speed, or design elements I had to shorten the original scroller message further and at some point got the idea to use this redundancy.

So it's also not a 100% quine, more like 95%. :)

The top part of the screen kind of ruins it for me.

@rrrola: I've seen that before. Looks like we coders are attracted to such stuff. ^^

@psenough, @Preacher: Fair enough. I could've added some more stylish effect (rasterbars? ^^).

Well, this was my 1st intro on that platform. (Volumetric Bright was 2nd)
Since quines were mentioned, how about a polyquine?
The Art of Code - Dylan Beattie (YouTube)
The earliest i can remember that an introish production showed its own code is Dragondrop (2014)

It was done as early as 1990, Amiiigggaa and all that.

As for the intro, what Preacher said.
