Best fullscreen screen.

Post by ASYLvM »

Has it ever been discussed before?

What is the best fullscreen - screen ever in history of Atari?

Level 16?
Paulo Simoes?
ULM?

Your thoughts are very welcome.



Cheers

My favorite fullscreen effect was the brainblasting Cuddly's fullscreen screen by TCB, back then (1989) it was totally amazing.

Level 16 screen in the Union Demo was pretty amazing too at that time.


The Tex screen you're talking about is probably the one from the Syntax Terror (Delta Force).

I loved the Overlanders Full screen in Froggies over the Fence, Full screen scroller, the full 512 colours, all sorts of effects, the lot and it looks awesome.

I too loved the Gunstick screens(in Dark Side of the Spoon), absolute quality.

And finally I loved Flix's Medium-Res overscan in Punish Your Machine. The only time i've ever seen a Medium-Res scan.

:D:D:D

Wicked stuff.

:D

Peace...

At first I'd say Gunstick's fullscreen.

But many other were extremely impressive like those in the Froggies over the Fence. I also think to the fullscreen effects made by Holocaust.

Wow oldskool opinion requested ? :-)

To me, Cuddly demo fullscreen is *the* one because it was totally brainblasting ( there was no hardscroller at that period, so that big screen was IMPOSSIBLE to move !! Even if you saw it with your own eyes, your brain don't beleived it !! awesome !! :-))

To me, the best one ( technic, gfx, music, idea ) is the paralax distorter by Gunstick / ULM.

The most technical one is the 3d filled vectorfullscreen by ziggyStardust ( at the beginning of the OVR screen in Froggies)

Special notes to "amiga rotozoom" by DafJam/Checkpoint. Very good "oldskool like" technical fullscreen.

Thanks C-Rem to like the Nostalgic-o-Demo mainmenu ! :-)

:D:D:D

Oh thanks ! Some people remembered that screen :-) The fun part is that there is a lot of free CPU time in that 3d-cube-50hz-fullscreen ! I remember there is about 60% cpu free , but no one memory byte left :)

60% left!!! Blimey, thats pretty impressive mate. Oh and i'm equaly impressed with your site by the way. Wicked stuff. :)

Not sure which demo it was in exactly, but that spasticated ball with the star on it, how complex was that to do? What is the cpu load of something like that?

Good stuff.

:D

Peace...

Mad Max covered the tune from the movie Fletch in this screen. His version should be in Grazey's Zak Hacks. Digi Version I have around somewhere, not sure if its in the attic, but I'll see what I can find

Ah, yes, that was it. I knew I had heard a "digi" version somewhere. It was in fact in that film :D

Back to the topic, some cool fullscreens were programmed by the Polish Acid Maker in his Dragonnels demo, including a version of arkanoid in full screen (with mouse and everything!!!), and a reset demo which is probably in med-res. Very impressive

That's a demo that must have escaped me .. same as the coder. I must have moved to the PC at that point :(

I can't get that image to work in SainT or Steem, am I doing something wrong? I have tried the obvious changing RAM and TOS config but on Steem it resets continously and on Saint it tries to boot from it then goes to the desktop and can't read from drive A.
