Demos on CD+G?

category: code [glöplog]
Few years ago... I burn an audio CD and while trying it in my dvd player, I realize it was recognize as a CD+G format and all sort of buggy graphics came out on screen. Wow... that's sounds like a demo plateform I thought!

I did some attempt to code something but never got my .iso file being set properly to be seen as a valid CD+G. After few CD burn with no results, I move along to some other projects.

I wanted to know, is there anyone who have try or saw someone trying to do a demo on CD+G format?

i thought of CD+G as a demo platform when I had an Amiga CD32 (if anyone ever makes a CD+G demo, obviously this is the right machine to watch it on!). Never got around to it and now the miggy's gone, so...

its lowres graphics stream data, no more no less, so besides the novelty factor it'd basically just be an anim i guess? deducts from the shine a little.

superplek: well from what I saw, there was command to set cursor position and write a char. So, I was thinking perhaps it's possible to make a star field! ;) Also, I think but not sure... there might be a scrolling command to move chars.. hum.. also maybe set colors?

I know there is no RAM and computation.. so it's nothing more than an animation. But, it remain an Audio CD which is compatible with all Audio CD Player... but once you put into a player which has video output and support for it.. it could probably look better than any commercial CD+G done for karaoke purpose (where it's mostly a low-res picture + lyrics).
