Is it just me or are these demos (I've got several of these) on the Beeb nothing like the sort of demo found on other computers.

If you look at the demo scene on the ZX Spectrum (ok, the 128 usually due to faster loading from floppy etc.) or the similar things that get done on the C64, Amiga and so on, there are some very interesting and pretty things that can be done on such limited hardware.

Sadly, try looking for something with nice audio and graphics on the Beeb and we are left wanting. Thing is, the BBC Micro is surely up to the same sort of stuff, and has just as good a sound ability, but we end up (no offence) with bones, or palette switching which takes about 10 minutes to draw a screen (or a few screens) and then switches the palette to resemble animation, or changes the address of the screen start (and uses clever CRTC codes to shorten the screen size to fit in the screens).

Think we should all cooperate in making a demo to rival all these other platforms and this would put the Beeb back on the top spot.

Who's up for the challenge?
Just remember kids, Beeb spelled backwards is Beeb!

I agree, it's surprising there isn't anything similar for the Beeb like the 'scene' created for the C64 and later the Amiga. There's plenty of nice music demos (see Yorkshire Boys), but very little that mixes audio/graphics.

Oh wow I've just fired this up. I remember so much of these. Thanks for posting these Pernod!

Talk about going back in time! Has it been 30 years? Time flies doesn't it. What an old codger I am. :lol:

I am trying to do some animation in Slippery Slug Movie Maker. Blimey it's still as difficult 30 years later! I almost got an animation out of it when I was 12!

I've been thinking of getting back into a bit of BBC Basic as well.......and teletext mode stuff.

Anyone recommend a good teletext editor please?

I am also going to fire up AMX Super Art. I've also suddenly remembered 'Page=&1500' after 30 years trying to get Acorn User's paint software working. It's still in there somewhere! :lol:

Looks like I found a good teletext editor.
