Ένα πρόσφατο πολύ καλό demo που αξίζει να αναφέρω εδώ είναι το C.R.T.C. των Benediction. Είναι πιο κοντά στα demos που μου αρέσουν στον Amstrad, γιατί ενώ χρησιμοποιει και το hardware σε αρκετά σημεία, συνδιάζει και με πολλά καινούρια software rendered effects με αρκετές πρωτιές στον amstrad. Πρώτο 3d tunnel (και με panning), zooming chessboard layers, tilted vertical bars, amiga style feedback zoomer, συν κάποια παλιά αλλά βελτιωμένα εφφέ (zooming plasma, 3d city αλλά με χρώμα) και όλο αυτό σε ένα αρκέτα solid trackmo/multipart style demo, με ωραία γραφικά από έναν Έλληνα τον voxfreax.
demo for Amstrad CPC, 2nd at Revision 2021
Πολύ ωραίο Demo!
Τον θυμάμαι τον voxfreax
Παραθέτω και μια εξαιρετική συνέντευξη σου μίας και έχετε συνεργαστεί πολλές φορές!
NoRecess> Who are the CPC active users (pseudo..) , the past/current projects...
I think only me (Optimus
are active today. I have been active as a coder on the CPC since 2000, released some demos (A step Beyond
, Chunky Chan
and other minor 1k intros) and sometimes painted few graphics for my demos. Voxfreax
is a very enthousiastic man who has also contributed graphics work for some French projects too. Currently he is my most active contact where we can talk about CPC and be crazy about the whole thing. Rex
is here too, probably the oldest greek CPC scener and best greek CPC graphician, sometimes still contributing graphics on CPC competitions, hopefully for our projects too (although it's my fault I forget to communicate more often with Rex). Now, there is Antitec
which is a friend I see very very frequently but we rarely talk about doing something on the CPC anymore. Well, I may talk to him about what I am doing but maybe this talk is uninteresting to him. He consciously has decided he can't spare his time anymore for something so old. Though, rarely he gets sparks of motivation for releasing Ovation 6
. It's amazing! But of course this fades away fast enough. He will still make you a CPC Booster though if you order one.
NoRecess> Who are the CPC active "followers" (you know, people on forum that are not specially creative by participate to the CPC life in forums, etc)
First of all, what happened to the older sceners? I know Catloc
, FG Brain
as you may well know has left this world since a long time ago. I don't know what JFMC
is doing but he likes taking holiday cards from Sotsoft
is a crazy feelow who sends me absurd SMS in my phone that I am too lazy to reply to, well he did some kind of basic demos with his Hellas-Laser group (search on Pouet maybe) but that's it. People ask me why I keep corresponding with Sotsoft
and I don't know what to say but I keep doing it. FG Brain
is the only "sane" person there left. I find him hanging around retromaniax.gr
which is a crazy greek community about everything retro (when I say everything, I mean EVERYTHING. From retro clothes and foods to retro computers and tv and magazines!
and there is a little section about CPC games, demos, programming, hardware, etc. He takes part in the conversations but I don't think he ever posed any recent interest to start coding again for the CPC. There might be more old CPC sceners that are missing, nobody knows where they are even today. Oh, I once metKod
for a while at a greek PC demoparty in 2002 but then I lost contact.
