That's cool, I've got to admit I've been really enjoying watching old 8-bits coping with some demos! Some of the coders out there are so impressive.

The bit I remember most from the original demo was the bit with the circular SAW blade, is that in the C64 remake? I havent watched it all yet.

Amazing...

I'd say that the Desert Dream is my favourite Amiga demo - really great & really fast routines.

To do all that on the C64?

Full power coding!

Can I get a hell yeah...!

If you can do a funky, gritty SINGING robot voice like that on a VIC-20, why did nobody ever do it on the C64?

I know there were real-time speech synths for the C64 but I've never heard them sing!

If anybody knows of something like this on the C64 I'd love to see it.

I remember seeing a better quality video of Robotic Liberation where the sound and video was in sync. Anybody knows where it is?

Lots of videos on youtube seem to have this problem, I guess sync gets lost in the conversion to their flash video format..

*edit*

Some misc. info on the demo by the author, and a 55MB XviD video!

Oh man...

...just checked out that video of Robot Liberation.

That VIC20 (how do you that on a VIC20???!!!) demo kicks arse!

Bow very low if you meet the guy who coded that one...
