This is an oldschool hardware banging intro for Amstrad CPC with 128kb (compatible with the Plus). This intro will fail on CPC fitted with CRTC type 2 and probably (untested) type 4, with type 0 some pixel in the 32kb picture will be nuked. It was released as a cheat-part in Synergy2/Impact and I probably won't waste my time again to do such cool cheatpart for dumb old farts after the feedback I've had with it.
These sources are published as-is, for educational purpose. I've added some comments here and there along the source to let you know what is going on. Everything has been made with WinAPE (I'm using some of it's assembler directives to assemble in the extra 64Kb RAM of a 6128 amongs others things).
The files you will find in the archive:
|just a wrapper for WinAPE.|
|the main source code.|
|SNApshot of the CPC with preloaded data in RAM and the BASIC program to generate the sinus curves.|
|part 1/2 of the 32kb picture as DEFB sourcecode.|
|part 2/2 (dunno why I didn't merged both parts :)|
|This is the font-bitmap, char-map and encoded scrolltext.|
|STarKos player and music-data.|
|You'll find there the graphics in PNG format.|
skoh-init.snaSNApshot (press F5)
And the whole thing should start. Enjoy :)
