This will probably be another just using hardware vs good thread..but

I second Arte by Sanity..
Still wonder why no drivning game ever used the "textured" road/tunnel routine on an a500, that alone would have sold games.

For personaly prefer Substance by Aliance design/quartex. Mostly on nostalgia and memories

What about that Fairlight demo that was one disk but featured several minutes of compressed video (albeit very green!), I think it was called 242? That must have been quite a technical achievement?

okay, peeps i think this would only be fair if we state a specific hardware (chip / chipset) and year

its hardly fair compairing an ECS 68k demo against an 020-AGA one.

just a fair way of discussing it, such like

best amiga demo wont be fair to some others that had to do a lot more in a lot less.... how about a couple of catacorgies.... keeping it simple,

Best OCS demo between 90-91 / 91 - 92 and so on....
Best ECS demo
Best AGA demo

if you wanted this could also be limmited to memory requirements and or cpu... but this is where perhaps a POLL (shudders / cringe) could actually work in finding out criteria

Why do you need a poll? All you have to do is list the best OCS demo, ECS demo and AGA demo, surely? And why you think they are the best technically.

perhaps its all the POLL SPAM effecting me...... i am not sure how to make a decision anymore..... without a POLL it seems....

I believe you to be very correct sir, listing ECS / OSC and AGA is certainly the way forward, perhaps also stating if it needs more than a basic machine... ie. cpu (030) or 8MB of fast ram etc.....

and what do you think about starstruck ?
in fact it's hard to manage a top because there is so much demo and know every demo is impossible!

RSI Megademo, Hardwired by Crionics+TSL, Anything by Chaos/Sanity, Voyage by Razor. All legendary A500 demos in their day.
Can't comment on any accelerated/AGA demos because I was finished with Amiga by the time these machines were released...

That's great! Had to download the adf and run it on my 500 though to savour the full effect.... and it's even cooler on the real thing



Love Starstruck too for the more powerful miggys
