                    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.
