Anyone has a count of how many platforms he covered?

From a quick count from his pouet contributions I'd say around 24 - 25 platforms. (Correct me if I'm wrong.)

Incredible if true. The king of platforms he was.

I counted 28 on Pouët (the ones listed as "Wild" are for a few different platforms), but I could be wrong, my eyes are still sore. He also did a slideshow for the Luxor ABC 806 which hasn't been added here yet, and he coded some effects for the same machine that we were going to turn into a demo later this year.

He did some other releases that also aren't on this site yet, I'd say he covered over 30 platforms.

Over 30?! Apparently there was no machine that he couldn't tame. It's also worth noting that even on the more conventional demo platform of the C64, his demoparts totally rocked. I'm going to miss his presence on the scene a lot. Again, my condolences to all who were close to him.

Also, some of his releases that are on Pouët don't have credits yet, so they're not listed on his profile. I've added credits to two of his Plastic releases, one for the PSP and one for the GP32

Rest in peace, Sdw. Thank you for your great work.

My condolences to the family. I never met him, but I read his code, so as a coder to coder, it feels like I knew him well. I don't care much for the number of platforms, but he also had a good eye for what works and what doesn't, so his demos always looked good, whatever platform he used.

I was returning from Midwinter Meeting when the news reached me. Just two weeks before I had sent him my appreciation for the beautiful latest Atari VCS release he had created with Mermaid. Andreas was an absolutely outstanding demoscener in many regards. He had the unique passion and ability to create demos on essentially everything that consumed electricity and that could be programmed. His skills were not only in the area of coding but also in the area of design. He always impressed me with the color schemes he used and with the brilliant ideas to overcome the limitations of every piece of hardware. His work was a source of true inspiration for many of us and for me personally. Some of the best demos I ever did were nothing but humble attempts to adapt his ideas.

He was always kind and helpful to many of us, and I am happy that I could help him a few times when the chips in the Atari didn't want to obey his commands. I owe him many cheerful moments in my life. We've lost one of the best and I am deeply saddened.
