Steffest Digitale Pulptuur

I went to my first "demoparty" this weekend.
RSYNC in Leuven , hosted by some random scrubby guy called fRAnKY.
It's super amazing how many super amazing people can be at the same place at the same time!

Of course a demoparty is only a demoparty if you release a demo, and I didn't want to show up empty handed.
I made "Ordo", a visual story about the endless cycle of ORDER and CHAOS.

The first demo out of my own kitchen.
Mostly a glorified slideshow, though ...
I had the naïve idea to write it in system friendly C code and compile it on the amiga itself.
I know nothing about c and still don't - but it was a fun exercise.
In the end I only figured out how to do 2 things without crashing: how to blit pieces of bitmaps on the screen and how to change colours, so that's what I went with.
No sprites, no bobs, no copper, that's for the next one!

Here's the video

Should run on any Amiga with at least 1MB of chip ram.
(That's because I'm lame and don't know yet how to do proper memory management or compression on Amiga)

And there seem to be some severe audio/video sync issues on some systems 😕
(That's because I'm lame and I have no idea how to keep 2 seperate processes in sync on Amiga)

Just scratching the surface and so much still to learn, but boy, what an interesting machine, that Amiga ... right ?
