Futuro MZ by Genesis Project

Is there such a thing as an MZ demoscene?

Finally the demo I've been working on is finished, thanks to everyone here on the forums for their help!

Youtube video

MZF binary

Technically it a bunch of standard "demoscene" effects, trying to optimize as best as I could with interleaved VRAM access and stack abuse to get as much speed as possible, and finally a hires routine with a little twist to it! :)

Yeah, without looking at the code, I'm pretty sure you use 112 pixels per line, but instead displaying a rectangle, you shift the X character start position X at each pixel line Y. ;P

Now a space invader with, say, 112x100 pixels :p.

Not wearing one, but I take my hat of to you! Very impressive even if you find it to "standard" stuff. Almost makes me wish I had not sold my 800. When I owned a 700 as a kid not in my wildest dreams could I have imagined this being possible and the sound even being tolerable.

Very cool. Presume splitting VRAM by chasing the beam to get the hi-res pic. Must take a lot of different character swaps!
