MJJ-Prod releases the Badger demo

April 21, 2004 by Brume

News illustration image MJJ-Prod is just coming to produce a new demo. It's named Badger and it's a mix between a sampled screen and a slideshow demo. It's difficult to define, so try it.
The demo is spread in both versions: the first one is for ST computers (better results may be obtained with STe machines). And the second one has been enhanced for Steem emulator.
Thanks to MJJ-Prod guys for this exclusive gift ;)

Download the regular version here: Badger
And the Steem enhanced version here: Badger for Steem

Paradox breaks the rules on STe!

April 18, 2004 by Brume

News illustration image Until yesterday the STe was officially able to display 320x200 pixels on screen and use a palette with 4096 colors (16 colors at screen only). Some developers and democrews managed to use an extended palette with 32.768 colors on it, but still in 320x200 pixels.

Paradox has found the way to increase STe capacities: their new demo shows 640x400 pixels on screen, with 14.000 colors on it (the palette contains 29.791 colors)!

Actually the screens scrolls, this is not a fixed slideshow. The result is very incredible! This demo runs on STe/MegaSTe, so please run it on this machines only. Don't try it with Steem, the screens are fully corrupted. And keep the demo on a disk, since it doesn't run from the hard drive.

Random review

Well, we all know the story by now, I guess. Pacman was conceived by Toru Iwatani while he was eating a pizza. When he looked at his plate, after he had eaten a slice of his pizza, he came up with the idea of creating the main circular and yellow character we all know and love today.
