Top notch prod. Crazy good code, design and music. Everything fits nice together.

Nicely designed intro with great music. The RGB version of the plasma doesn't really fit though and should have been left out in my opinion.

Several clever things going on here.
Style-wise it's a bit dated imho, especially when comparing to the other top-5 entries. But within its early 1990s time capsule it's really good and it also feels like a full-fledged Demo packed into a small file size.

Atari People coding Amiga :D

but hella good :)

Haha, everything is better at 8MHz!

Code, music, graphics... is all good! Another excellent contribution to the Amiga competition at Gerp by the Atari team! You rock guys!

Piggie is marked as “is ok”, and that feels appropriate here.
added on the 2024-01-24 21:58:12 by Sesse Sesse
solid prod.

(can't help wondering what this would've sounded like with oversampling. and a 4 or 8 times longer precalc time. I know. sigh)

Awesome intro with incredible effects and style. It was great to meet the crew at Gerp. Mission accomplished with the "connection" purpose :-) Looking forwared to seeing more Amiga stuff from Atari people!

Love that 3D dithering thing

Really nice!!! Love the blended copper bars/plasma thing!!

Cheers for the sine/aklang credits in the .nfo file too!

Which sin table generator did you borrow ?

It was posted in a discussion on a forum about a small sine table generator, I've tried to find it again but to no avail. I need to improve my DuckDuck-powers.

Anyway, pasted from the demo source: Pastebin

Thanks for sharing it :)

Ah yes, that was a great thread on EAB. Lots of great routines posted for the smallest sin table generator (some more accurate than others). I think the smallest was 28 bytes perhaps ?
added on the 2024-01-26 10:37:24 by DanLemon DanLemon
Nice raster vectors, but I really question the sound quality...

another great 40k intro from gerp, congrats. I would like to see more dither vector effects!

Great Nu Shooz stuff. I‘ve read the info file and learnt new things. Inspiring!

Great looking dithered vectors.

Smallest Sin gens on Amiga are by me and 4b (and improved precision) after some months by Raylight/Powerline <3 on ADA. Nothing to do with this intro though, where compression is king and space is plentiful.

Appreciate the writer banter :D Hey - p.s. - Tramiel didn't keep up with Commodore ;)

Complaints about 1991 effects above seem weird. I don't mind the effects, the only one was the tunnel which doesn't look smooth.

Leaves the 'bob' ships. Also done in 1991 with more colors, certainly doable now with less, meaning 1bpl, meaning no masks, meaning no bob record, meaning even the CPU can do it, meaning Atari ST code can do it.

But you used the Blitter for the line ships. ;) (Actually not necessary, but this is my prediction.)

Shadebobs part looked best on my Amiga, kind of a wild mix of effects, greetings to all involved. :)

Hi photon, all vector stuff is cpu. Due to time.constraints I used 0 custom chips. Wish I had 8mhz....

Oh no! 7.094/8=13% less lines, with the Blitter you can double it! So this is a damn ST port!! (c) (etc) :D

Some cool effects in there, I like the 3d stuff and colorful plasma.

40k on a stock machine, actually the only real one i ever saw up close as one of my friends had one of those ... no skool like oldskool excellence. Im still not over the shock and trauma of booting (my) ST and then watching the same on an Amiga : there was only desktop , no programming language ... up until i havent recovered from that
