Hi,

To show off this cool hyperspecced intro (turboR, GFX9000, MoonSound, harddisk), I tried to make an AVI file of it using the latest openMSX CVS code, which runs the demo flawlessly.

However, due to my slow PC (and a certain degree of lazyness) I have to mention some problems with this video:

  • the video is only 10 frames per second
  • openMSX was set to 10 frames per second and scale_factor 1 (lowest quality)
  • the video shows stutters at regular intervals (I suppose due to the 'live' recording); on a real MSX and in openMSX it's 100% smooth
  • the sound was recorded separately (using the openMSX soundlog function) and added later: this causes some slight out-of-syncness in general and a huge out-of-sync at the end: for the audio I pressed "SPACE" a lot later than in the video recording, so now you have the wrong sound during the fighter selection at the end.

But all in all, it should give you a good impression of this intro demo and also somewhat the openMSX emulation of it Smile

Get it here: http://openmsx.sourceforge.net/x-tazy-intro-on-openmsx.avi

Technical details: it's a 24MB AVI, encoded with the M$ MPEG-4 v2 codec with mencoder (thanks to Wouter for telling me how to use this :P ), video captured with xvidcap.

Of course, you can still ask a binary on #openMSX on irc.freenode.net (or compile the latest CVS code yourself) if you want to see this with your own eyes in a lot better quality :) (Or run it on a real MSX, of course! :P )

Very nice video Smile
And I do feel a feature request coming up: direct mpeg encoding from openmsx output (combined sound+video) Tongue

AuroraMSX, the request coming up is: "More software for GFX9000!!!" Smile

Indeed, I only made the video Smile Better ask someone of Abyss.... Maybe Maggoo can help you with that?

And webmouse: you saw the 1.1. version, this is the 1.2 one.

Unfortunately I was not involved at all in the Xtazy project. Better contact Slayerman (Martial Benoit) or Mi-Chi.
