|Description From The Author|
|"First "part" is a PETSCII PPCS logo with a $FF11-trickery sound effect. It was inspired by the TCS crack intro logo of I-Ball and Auf wiedersehen Monty on the C64.|
Second part is a simple triple-scroller with a dynamically broadened ROM charset.
The piece of music in the first scroller part is written by Peter, a studied musician, one of my secondary school classmates and alleged member though he never really contributed much else as he felt two tones two restrictive (he loved the SID though... sigh...). Unfortunately the two tones got misaligned and the fix never came. The second part's music was coded by me based on a Soviet partisan song.
Both music parts were done with Music-16. Around 2000 I found Peter's music in original source format and fixed the tone alignment.
The border scroller was ripped from Summer Events I believe.
The lady picture is done by SIT and was featured originally in the Fräulein Kinski demo by The Eggman (1987). CSDb link here. The main SID tune is one of my all time favourites.
Both pieces of multicolor bitmap graphics as well as the 2x2 charsets were ripped from C64 using a self-made converter (Kep-Konverter) which is also recovered (but forgot how it worked). The same converter was used to create Picture Show 2 which was supposed to serve as ammunition for a kind of a megademo but I'd lost interest and my C16 broke shortly thereafter."
