It's that time of the year again

Post by dhedberg »

Heya'll,

New Beat released a new demo for the Falcon030 at Sommarhack 2020. The demo is for standard 16MHz Falcon030 computers with at least 4MB of ST-RAM. It runs on standard VGA monitors in standard frequencies (60Hz). So should work just fine on any modern monitor.

The binary can be downloaded from our web page or from Pouet: https://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=86119
At Pouet there's also a link to a youtube recording of the demo for those with no access to real hardware (please don't use Hatari to run the demo, it doesn't emulate the VGA mode of the Falcon030 properly).

Any comments (and thumbs-up) on Pouet would be much appreciated and a very good way of telling us that you enjoyed the demo. A thumb also increases the likeliness of another New Beat demo. ;-)

Thanks,
Daniel

Thanks guys! Evil was so kind to upload a new capture of the demo that's slightly better than the first one that was published. So if you don't have the real hardware to watch the demo on, this youtube video will be the second best alternative: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O155Eyh9Nc8

@dml: If you enjoyed this demo, have a look at the one we released last year. A lot more effort was put into that one:

Great demo! It is really impressive to see how Falcon can smoothly draw polys in hi res :)


@cyprian very cool demo! Great idea and realization!

I'm sad to say I did miss this - my late congratulations on a great demo and more Falcon awesomeness!

I really have quite a bit of catching up to do.

:cheers:
Doug.

Besides the VGA / 50Hz issue with Hatari, one needs really fast machine, otherwise Hatari DSP emulation runs too slowly for music to sound good (at all).

If one doesn't care about the great music, one can run it with EmuTOS (which doesn't implement DSP XBios calls yet) and disable Hatari DSP to speed up emulation a lot. And e.g. use RGB instead of VGA. It's nice that the demo handles DSP missing.

PS. I really like the the clean design & effects (like in Joy demo)!

I bought the full album from Malmen's bandcamp page: https://malmenmusic.bandcamp.com/album/fakebit-world
I think you can buy individual tracks as well. Buying an album or individual track means you will by able to download the music in the lossless FLAC format. He doesn't ask for much, so well worth the money if you like his music!

I know Im late to the party, but great demo there Daniel!

I will give you a +1 for the demo and +2 for making it work for the 'standard' 4mb machine.

Well done! :cheers:
