The Union Demo - with Charly in the main menu :)

Holy ancient thread revival, Necroman!

First demo, absolutely ever for me, were the three intros by The Exceptions on the ST, 'readme.prg', Little Sound Demo, and the Little Color Demo where Rob said Wow!.

All on the same disk from Page 6 PDL :-)

The first one I remember clearly was Gateways by Trauma. I might have also seen some funny demos by PWP earlier but during that time I probably didn't understand what they were.

One of the first demoscene productions I remember seeing was a Lemmings clone for MS-DOS by the group Cocktail. But I might have seen some demoscene productions on C64, Amiga or PC before that.

I can't find it on Pouët. Maybe I should dig through my oldities to if I still have it and upload it...

It was a 4k intro made by a Spanish programming magazine called "Sólo Programadores". I had no idea what demoscene was at the time, but the article was entertaining anyway.

pretty sure it was the Union Demo, spent ages and ages trying to work out if the 'hidden' screen actually existed or not. I still don't know the answer :)

Hard to remember for me, so much cool stuff was going down, but probably the WildCopper demo. Or was it the Fashion megademo, hmm or perhaps the Demons are Forever demo, i cant remember :)

omg if i could remember my first witnessed cracktro it would have been a pc prod but it was c64 so...

first groups that i actually remember were those atarians: FoF, pompeys, medway boys and later on d-bug and automation. also the first time i really cared about what the scrollers said and not just 'scanned' the text for "press [t] for trainer" hehe.

compared to the amiga the atari scene was pure peace and harmony, tho ;).

actually i probably still wouldnt really care about it if it wasnt for pouet and scene.org. in the early 90s when i started off with the pc there was not much scene around. pc disks werent a hassle to copy and the protections were usually "cracked" by a xeroxer or a do-it-yourself dial-wheel if there even was one :). so i even missed 2nd reality for a long time (i think it eventually popped up on my bbs in '97 or sth).
then came the internets and the hype about fr-08 reached me and pointet me to scene.org.

I was 7, some "big guys" were watching it in a computer club and wouldn't let me see as I was "too young for this". I Immediately fell in love with the thing :D Took me 12 years of searching to find it, which in the meanwhile led me to to become a scener :)

2nd reality running in a loop on some computers in a computer store in my town - I stood there and watched many many loops of it...

Most notably I remember this Syndicate crack intro and
of course the Lemmings Final crack with 4mat's brillant tune.
Megademo 4 by Vision is a favourite of mine as well as Wildfire's In Full Affect.

Since I didn't own a PC until 2004(!) the first scene demo I can remember is Füt4r Crüe's Unreal ... it was played in loop as a buying teaser on a 486 at a warehouse (Hertie).

IK+ cracktro by The Replicants.

I was amazed : how can they display more than 16 colors on a ST ? This must be magic or something.

i remember seeing some breeze intro or demo on the c64 around that time. but, i believe strongly in my heart that the first cracktro (demoscene production) i ever saw, was from fairlight. i might be wrong, but i like to believe that.

The first two I saw were State of Mind by Bomb! and fr-08. Don't remember which was first though.

probably this. Until then, I was merely using c64 to play zak mc kracken, buggy boy and samurai warrior. Unfortunately, not much changed thereafter in that area, but trying to figure out how parts are done was fun.

Cracktros on c64 then ST, but the first demo i saw IIRC is:
