Christmas, Atari STyle

Hi all,

I was searching for stuff related to my old local computer club (ACE-St. Louis), when I came across two Christmas demos on demozoo. These were released by ACE-St. Louis's MIDI SIG in 1987 and 1989. They are basically compilations of Christmas music and Christmas-themed images culled from various BBSes and presented using the ALITE.PRG player.

I made video captures of each one, which you can watch here: http://breakintochat.com/blog/2014/12/22/merry-christmas-atari-style/

My original intention was not to post videos, but rather to embed the EstyJS emulator. I got it working, but there is a bug in playback, so the music does not sound right. You can see what I mean here. I tried sending messages to Darren Coles on various accounts, but I haven't heard back, so who knows if/when it will be fixed.

As a archivist of demozoo I have to ask... do you have more old stuff that we haven't listed yet?

I made a video of the 1987 demo recorded from my ST connected to a MIDI module (Yamaha MU1000) :)

I got a copyright notice as Yotube thinks "Silent Night" is owned by a "third party" :roll: So thats why there is an ad popping up in the video.

I don't, but I'm in touch with Randall Kopchak, and it's possible he might.
