Atari-forum Demo first screen!

April 30, 2004 by Brume

News illustration image We have received an impressive screen from sceners: a beautiful screen coded by Tobe (also author of Roger), painted by C-Rem (talented gfx-man from MJJ-Prod) and tuned by 505 (famous composer from Checkpoint)! This screen displays 128 colors and was fully coded in GFA Basic.Indeed! It's named Tribute to Rainbow Tos because Atari-forum logo uses cycled colors, similar to the logo that appears on TOS 1.62 (but far better). We weren't able to resist to post this shot, even though we shouldn't.

The screen will be included into the Atari-forum Demo. Deadline for contributions is May 1st 2004. See this topic for more details.

MJJ-Prod releases the Badger demo

April 21, 2004 by Brume

News illustration image MJJ-Prod is just coming to produce a new demo. It's named Badger and it's a mix between a sampled screen and a slideshow demo. It's difficult to define, so try it.
The demo is spread in both versions: the first one is for ST computers (better results may be obtained with STe machines). And the second one has been enhanced for Steem emulator.
Thanks to MJJ-Prod guys for this exclusive gift Smiley

Download the regular version here: Badger
And the Steem enhanced version here: Badger for Steem

Random review

An old coin op conversion by Domark, a software house famous for its horrible conversions (have you ever tried "S.T.U.N. Runner" ? No ? Well, try it and you WILL be disappointed...). But hey, some of their arcade games, like Badlands or A.P.B., were not so bad, so maybe this one isn' t really crap...
