    I'm pretty sure it was a static screen in motion (like ants in ant's nest - you know what I mean). I asked my mother about it: "Yes, it was Atari", I asked my dad: "Nah, it was something different" and my sister doesn't even remember anything about it.
    Well, I'll try to ask them again, because I'm really interested what it was, I'll let you know. And thanks for your concern.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure the spectrum used to display flasing multi-coloured bars when loading games. Of course neither of our opinions count as we don't have hot sisters. :(

    and the new 8-bit album Bits with Byte is out:

    also some cool demos









    and lastly, Sonic The Hedgehog C64 release.

    He was not a jew, Trzmiel is a 100% potato surname.

    If he was Jewish, it means he had a Jewish mother, and so his surname could've been really anything if she married a goy.

    The Polish Wikipedia page omits this fact, but judging by other cases it seems to be common to state Polish Jews are Polish, and then to mention the Jewish background in an additional sentence (Alfred Tarski). Can't help but think there's a bit of appropriation going on there.

    And of course Trzmiel was the founder and owner of the company, and not the engineer that designed the computer.

    Hmm.... Ziembicki?

    Jack Trammiel was awesome. Discussing if he was a jew or not is one of the lowest point the Codex ever reached.

    This. Nothing will ever come close to the magic that machine brought to my screen. Thread nearly brought a tear to my eye :salute:. But as has been said before, apart from all the gameplay what really set the amiga apart in its day was the music OMG the music. So imagine the thrill I felt, and perhaps a miniture loss of urine, when I discovered that turrican music god Chris Huelsbeck, responsible for such gems as this...





    ...has his own bloody kickstarter page to remaster, rerecord and rerelease the whole of turrican 1 2 and 3's soundtrack.

    :what:

    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects...ndtrack-anthology-by-chris-huelsbeck?ref=live

    For those already kickstarter tired, I figured still a good heads up just knowing it will be out in the coves and bays of this world.

    Ah yes, those great names. I remember salvaging fat agnus from a broken A500 to fix another. Just randomly exchange chips until one of them booted up again. I had no clue :lol:

    Yeah, exactly my thoughts! Same goes for the various Hippel or C64 "orchestral" re-works. Something magical is lost in the transition...

    Ps. On the other hand, simple forms of classic music (not the big orchestral ones, but quartets, string, harpsichord or piano solos) are somewhat similar to the chip music. Simplicity is beautiful.

    You mean like that track Dimmu Borgir stole from Tim Wright and tried to pass as their own?

    It was actually more common than you'd think. Kernkraft 400 is probably the most prominent example as they played that tune in every club for 2 years straight, at least around here. Works both ways tho.
