VCF has a Mega STE and wants advice

Post by Fletch »

The Vintage Computer Federation's museum at the Infoage Science Center has recently had their Mega STE repaired and what to put it on display. They asked me for suggestions on what to have running on the Mega STE as people go through. They are looking for suggestions on looping demos as well as something interactive.

I'd like to get some suggestions here and pass those along.

Any feedback is appreciated.

Thanks!

Interactive? DevPac 3 or GfA Basic 3.x. :lol:

For fun: Bubble Bobble immediately comes to mind. The two player mode is great. More original also with a great two player mode would be Gauntlet.
For "not fun": NOEchrome, Calamus, Scribus, Steinberg, the lot.

The alternatives are just too good and there are too many: perhaps it is then not the DevPac assembler. :D And then there are all these incredible demos! It's gonna be a full time job to change the disks all the time. :P

Cheers

My video player "MP_STE" can be used to show animations:

And an excellent other video player, specific for STE:

I'd go either for Frontier Elite intro or Xenon 2, which was by far the most impressive game for STe I remember. As for the demoscene I'd go for WE WERE "at" by Oxygene.
