Soylent Green (just eat me !) by Supersly (Les sucres en morceaux)


You can download Soleil vert by Supersly (les sucres en morceaux), a graphic made for the Breakpoint 2010 meeting. By the way, Soleil vert is the french name of the science-fiction film Solyent Green with Charlton Heston in 1973. A very good film, I recommend seing it if you didnt yet.

This picture uses flipping to get 31 shades of green (CT65 monitor).

Amstrad CPC demos on CPC-Power


CPC-Power is the Amstrad program database made by (but not only) Kukulcan and Loïc Daneels. You will find there databases of games, archives (documents like the documentation of CPC), Gamebase CPC, ads, and lately they added an Amstrad CPC demos database. One future feature for this site is to add the demos to my own database, but I will have to find the time for this.

From Scratch, an Amstrad CPC demo by Vanity


From Scratch is a french Amstrad CPC demo by the Vanity demo group (Hicks and Beb) with sound by Tom & Jerry, a 6 mn multipart demo needing a CRTC 1 to run due to hardware tricks, also disable "Plus PPI emulation" if used with the WinAPE emulator (Go Settings then General).

Though you can see a video of From Scratch on Youtube, it will be better to use a real Amstrad CPC or an emulator.
