I’ll warn you now, I wasn’t a good (or even average) demo coder, as I preferred to code using my main language of GFA BASIC.
However, there are some I’m proud of them all, even those that are very embarrassing but are definitely “of their time”.
Here’s an example of one of my early (and awful) ones: my Peter Gabriel Sledgehammer Sampled Demo. Some person suffered enough to record it and put it on YouTube.
(I feel sorry for the original uploader, I really do!)
My Atari ST Demos
|Demo Name||Description||DemoZoo link|
|Soccer Kid Demo||MOD rips/conversion from the PC version of the game.||Visit DemoZoo
|Pinball Illusions||Amiga MOD rips/conversion from the excellent pinball game.||Visit DemoZoo|
|Synthetic Delights||Over 100 Amiga 'chip music' style MODs on 1 disk||Visit DemoZoo|
|Slideshows / Animations|
|The Spheres Show (GFA Remix)||The old Spheres demo 'converted' to GFA and music by Wally Beben (Hagar) added.||Visit DemoZoo|
|IFF Animations #1||This and the two other disks all feature PC .IFF animations that were found on shareware CD-ROMs and ported to the ST.||Visit DemoZoo|
|IFF Animations #2||As above||Visit DemoZoo|
|IFF Animations #3||As above||Visit DemoZoo|
|ZX Spectrum Slideshow||My Dad made me a cable that allowed, with the correct software, to transfer ZX Spectrum SCREEN$ across to the ST. Music was from Platoon by David Whittaker. (One of my first 'demos' from 1988!)||Visit DemoZoo|
|Iron Maiden Slideshow||A similar slideshow, but using a tracker MOD conversion of Iron Maiden's Translyvania.|
It was to demo a 'slideshow creator tool' that I was creating. Add pictures, add a module and away you go.
If you want to hear one of the demos, then someone recorded my Soccer Kid demo and put it on YouTube in 2015. I didn’t find it until Oct. 2022!
Back then I loved the DPaint ST fonts, but was too lazy to get the name of the .MOD file and display it on screen. That certainly changed when I did my Synthetic Delights compilation disk 🙂
