New demo: 'Evil Influences' for the BBC Master

Post by VectorEyes » Sun Jun 21, 2020 12:40 am

Bitshifters and Desire are proud to release 'Evil Influences' for the BBC Master.

https://bitshifters.github.io/posts/pro ... ences.html

This one has been in development for many months and contains graphical techniques not previously seen on the Beeb (as far as I am aware!) It was a joint effort between Bitshifters and Desire. The last few months have been a rollercoaster of late-night development and cross-continental collaboration!

It also pushes the CRTC even harder than previous demos. To view under emulation you'll need the most recent release of B2, or alternatively JSBeeb. (Both emulators were used during development). Alternatively you can view it on youtube here:

Sadly this demo won't run on Masters which have a VLSI CRTC chip as its behaviour is subtly different from the more common Hitachi variants. Sorry!

I hope you enjoy it!

:shock: =D> =D> =D> =D> =D>

Positively diabolical!

I had to use JSBeeb because my Master's got the wrong type of CRTC, dammit!

I remember you were trying to fix a bug at abug (how appropriate!) in one of the interlaced effects at the beginning of this year.

Just a quick note to say that we've released version 1.1 of Evil Influences. A number of the transitions have been tidied up, one effect in particular massively improved, and a few other minor issues addressed. It's now the version that I wish I'd shipped two months ago!

I've updated the links in the first post of this thread to point to the new version, but here they are again:

Take a look if you haven't already!
