I grew up on Atari, and I can't figure out how anyone would tolerate the Speccy's monochrome graphics if you'd had the Atari, but obviously, some people were easily satisfied.

I tried the app, I replace the DHx:xxx.iff with my own path, but I can only get the animation to play, no audio. How do I get the audio to play as well? Doesn't "quiet" silence it?

No, but you'd think they'd be keen to show off their prods, and Pouet.net is the best way to find them (IMHO).

Pouet.net indicates there IS no Amiga version of Bad Apple, in neither OCS/ECS nor AGA, but I wonder why.

And yet the Amiga can play host to this:

Sprites are the weakest part of the Amiga specification (DEBUNKED)

As far as I can see, with only eight 3-colour sprites and 4 15-colour ones, with unlimited height but only 16 pixels wide, you really can see why the consoles wipe the floor with the Amiga OCS/ECS...
