MSX1 experts dvik and joyrex seem to be cooking up something new and remarkable, a beta video of their latest demo was uploaded to YouTube two days ago. You are forgiven when at first sight you'd swear you are watching an MSX2 demo! But alas, the fact that this demo is coming from dvik and joyrex (with music by Moran) should be enough of a hint already, in case you missed the MSX1 boot screen at the start of the video. The little machine is still going on well after more than a quarter of a century!

Is something wrong here?
I'm not allowed to see this video, I got a 'This video is private.' message ?

A nice demo with some pieces of near-fullscreen motion and chessboard and plasma effects, and a very interesting sort of techno PSG music. Indeed I sometimes needed to look very closely to see whether it was MSX1 or 2.

Sorry for making the video private, it wasn't meant to be releaesd yet. The demo was planned to be released at MIU, but since the party may be canceled this year, we need to find another good release place, perhaps ALT party or Assembly party.

And yeah, you need to wait to see whether its an MSX1 or MSX2 demo Wink

I had finally the chance to see the demo: GREAT!!!
The rulette animation looks great, it is vdpenc-oded :-)
Maybe i'm wrong but that tool has some margin to improve even more.
The bouncing ball section, with 3 layers of overlapped scrolling, is quite inpressive (so many layers moving so smooth !!!).
The sole defect is that it is too short LOL!
