The final #msxdev 2012 entry comes from TNI, who display their skills in an MSX2 demo called Third Screen. The demo shows a vertically scrolling text and an animated background that can be changed on-the-fly.

Nice one, reminded me of an unknown and understimated previous TNI demo: Revolution, particularly the 'windscreen wiper' part Smile

The mentioned diskmagazine in the scroller is DISK 8 by Near Dark that never got finished (just 10 txts were typed).
This is the mentioned frequency selector.

Hmm... Nice music! Ok, I found INS/DEL combination, but how to get to the other part seen on screenshots?

Ooh, I had not spotted the INS/DEL yet. But you could try the left and right cursors, NYRIKKI (sic)

Something amazing : try this demo on MSX1 with FM-PAC in a slot, it works, but only partially :

- the scroll is fully unreadable (!)
- the music stops at a certain position
- INS and DEL are without any effect

So what mars? The entries page clearly specifies MSX2 as requirement. Smile

Third Screen on MSX1 - less impressive than on MSX2, but still amazing :

I'll make another video on MSX2, but I'm sure that MSX1 fans will appreciate the MSX1 video.

Ok, I've tried to read all the scroll text, but everything that has happened is that now I have beginning of this song in my head... No matter if I go to shower, work, car, shop, anything... I can still hear the song untill "Hydefos" in a loop. Thanx guys, I really hate you!

plenty!...

(Ok, it's a nice demo, but I'm not gonna admit it)

Too bad you record at 50hz. Music is way too slow......
