Swedish MSX programmer Sdw has just finished his first MSX demo. It's a production with a style similar to modern retro demos on other systems, in other words: no boring scroll 'n logo, just great effects such as bumpmapping, fullscreen plasmas, etc. Requirements for this fresh new demo are: MSX1 with 64kB RAM and 16kB VRAM. Enjoy!

it's a incredible cool demo Smile this really can measure up again the dvik&joyrex demos.

The demo has a litle problem on 60hz though.

I hope, you can visit MSX Info Update next year. Skandinavian MSX coders are so rare... It would be nice to meet you.

G R E A T D E M O !!

I can see invaders in screen 3 plasma too!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL! INCREDIBLE and FUN!!!!!!!!!!!

Somehow I got feelin´ that this was done by some Commodore 64 user.... Tongue As I instantly recognised music style from Commodore 64 games and demos!!!!! And graphically too..... Smile

(Sadly) no MSX´er would do such demo, MSX´ers don´t see the truth out there Wink they see only japan and japanese won´t do demos like this..... Eek!

FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE ON MY TELEVISION!!!! WISH I COULD HAVE HAD DEMOS LIKE THIS IN THE 1980S...... Crying

Please do more MSX-1 demos!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (thanks!)

Hmm not exactly, I'm a big supporter of styles like these. I once conceived that 4motion engine to do the things *I* want to do, without depending on a coder or a computer. I'm more in favor of demo styles on mid-90's PC's tho, there's usually more room for tailormade music there. PSG/SID may be all retro 'n fun, but for me the Moonsound would be a better demo-soundcard as I have the choice of doing soundscapes and slow ambient with it (which doesn't work well on chipmusic-chips). Anyway, 2ct.
