ICBIB DEMO DOCUMENTATION
Welcome to the ICBIB Demo written by Brien King and Cory
Chapman for the ATARI DEMO Contest. This demo was written in 100%
GFA Basic V3.5e with the help of 74 Bytes of Assembler for the
sprite masking routine. This demo was written over a period of
over 6 weeks with the aid of Cory Chapman's SPRITE STUDIO V2.0
which was also written in GFA.
This demo uses the following that are found mostly on the STE:
o Use of the NEW color palette of 4096 colors!
o Extensive use of the BLITTER CHIP for faster animations.
o Stereo Digitized sound that uses 0% of CPU time!
This Demo features:
o Spiraling text scroller.
o Distorted ICBIB logo.
* Three-Dimensional tracking sprites.
* Banner dragging Pac-Man.
* Text roller.
* Bouncing Spinning SMILEY! faces.
* Speakers that move with the Music (In STEreo).
* Spinning FUJIs.
* Mirror reflection.
o = All featured running on the Title Screen at one time.
* = All featured running on the Main Screen at ONE TIME!
o Run in ST low resolution.
o STE/MEGA STE/TT. (no CACHE!)
o Should Have 1Meg of RAM, the more the better!
(we use 2 Megs!)
o A monitor, so you can watch the demo.
