Hello!


I haven't found an assembly-able .mod replay routines yet.
I suppose there are already some for the STe and Falcon.

A good idea: to have the tracker replay routine available to
all demo parts/groups, at some address, with some pointers:
initialize, play, stop, pause, mute channel, ...

Is this possible? Anybody?

Recommendations for tracker replay routines?


Good Night,

Hello Solo2,

For mod-replayers look here: http://dhs.nu/files_source.php

The Lance Protracker replay is one of the best/fastest for STE/TT, but it doesn´t work with the Falcon (this shouldn´t be a problem for the STE Megademo :wink: ).

Regards.

1988 for 4060 STE ?! It's wrong imho ;)

For 520 & 1040 STE: it's 1989 the right date.

Falcon030: it's 1993 for customers

Hello!


BITS have started a demo part for
this 20th Anniversary Mega Demo.

It uses the BLITTER chip, although
every programmer knows that the
68000 could do it faster, the space
consumption is lower (no shifted sprites).

Then I will use the hardware scroll
which is the best feature of the STe,
saving tons of CPU cycles.

I will do my first tries with the DMA
sound, 2 channels, 8bits, lots of cycles.

Here is a little demostration by
BITS, programming the STe:

Argh.
However if the rule "Maximum packed filesize is 160kB" is what I think it is, than I'd rather withdraw.

You are right 160 kB is the maximum file size. So it would be really a problem to include a MOD with 200 kB and more if a screen also uses some graphics. :wink:

And this is much compared to old Megademos where you had limits like 50kB. :angel:

Hello!

How is the Megademo?
Is it advanced?
How many parts has it already?
Who is taking part?
Is there room for more graphics/sound?

I think I will send my part now,
and then maybe I send a better
version tomorrow.

Hello!

I sent last night the BITS part
to RalfZenker of PDX, for
the 20 Years STe Megademo.

I hope You like it.

I thought of sending more than
one part, but it was a lot of
work, and I didn't know if the
other groups where doing also
the oldschool style, or something
more modern.

We really had a lot of problems the last days to integrate some of the screens (not yours) and had to fight with bugs in the loading system.
But most problems are fixed now and it will be released soon...
