M E G A C H A R T S JAN - FEB 1994 Page instructions: Introduction Page1 MegaChart 1-9 Page2 MegaChart 10-20 Page3 Facts about chart Page4 Singlecharts Page5 Last Words Page6 Some facts: All types of groups have the change to enter the charts, not only demo- or crackergroups! All members in the groups on the charts are at least registrated in one counted magazine. I count each point a member or a mag receives in the selected disc-magz! Mags released this period were: ' AddyBook #15 ChitChat #05 Earthquake #20 Magness #05 NewsPress #13 Revealed #03 Update #10 Well, only magagazies with smaller charts were released this time and the will ofcourse affect the MegaChart too... The charts in the magz were more up to date than they ever have been, inactive groups made big falls and active ones climbed as never before, but that´s they way it goes sooner or later,right? Also, the big magazines,like Splash,aren´t that often released and many of the votes get old,but they´re counted and do ofcourse dominate the charts,got it? Well, now, some suprises will follow on the pages and new for this issue is that I also created single Megacharts,read them then you´ll know the names of the sceneheros of the beginning of 1994!!

* Out of the chart: * Near the chart: ILLUSION (dead) MOTIV 8 (1898) EPIC (dead) SPIRIT (1628) COMIC PIRATES (dead?) LIGHT (1632) Three groups died and went out, the longawaited entry from Extend is suddenly true,smashed in at place 15! Fun to see TWO polish groups now in the chart,I think the c-64 future lies in Poland,more right than wrong,eh? Also,very nice to see that the voters today take more care before filling in those tons of sheets,unactive groups don´t belong in the chart and it´s very fun to see many newcommers too...

The Ultimate C-BBS PeeZee/64
by: Sledge/FLT You may have heard rumours about a new bbs program called c-bbs or Tron bbs? It´s the new BBS program done by the main coder in Fairlight, namely Tron. This new BBS program is in some ways different from other BBS programs on the C64, bcoz you don´t run it on a 64, but on a PC computer (finally PC can do something useful!). The program is developed on a 16 Mhz PC 386 computer in C environment. That means it´s a real fast program too. Why Tron decided to make a BBS program on a PC for 64 users is quite simple. He wanted to have a powerful board that ways fast , easy to expand and cheap equipment. On a PC you have 640k memory to use and if you have more the 1 megabyte in your computer, then you can use cache programs for greater speed. And PC computers are cheap today, atleast if you buy a XT or a 286 computer. A complete XT system with 20 megs HD and 640k memory + CGA monitor can be found at a price of 50-100 dollars today. And that is a real cheap system too if you just are going to use it as a board. And a XT is fast too for 2400 bps users. It will run as fast as any C64 board with a HD. But you can take advatage of backup programs copy programs, defragment programs when your HD are fragmented like hell. The program is completely compatible with Cbase 64. That means you can convert all the mail and letters that have been done on your old system. Even the userlog can be converted. That is something very useful. Bcoz who would like to buy a new BBS program when you already have a powerful board that have a big base of posts and users. Then it´s very useful to take the whole userfile and mail with it. The outifit is very like Cbase, but there are some improve- ment too. It has got a better sub system, with a fullscreen editor for 80 columns users. And it has got Punter, Xmodem, Ymodem and Zmodem protocols with heavily improved UD area. C-BBS is a 100% full working color graphic board. And it will look just like you called a real C64 board, only bigger and faster (it all depends on the equipment you use). It will support 40 and 80 column display, with c/g, ansi and acsii as options. Even the sysop will se a 40 column display when some- one logs onto with 40 column choosen. Everything to keep the real feeling there of running a real 64 board. Users will see new improvements on the E-Mail, UD and subs- system sides. When you have more then 1 mail in your private mailbox you will be able to choose which one you want to read first unlike Cbase scroll system which can be quite annoying sometimes. And you can delete just one mail if you wanna keep the other for further use. On the sysop side there will be a total change to what Cbase users are used to. You will now have better group access, mail to all users command, better access editor etc. The list can be long. It will also have a FREE network module included. And a personal network code too so that everyone that wan7t to take part of the C-BBS NETWORK can be that. And that is something real cool. The board will pack all mail files with PKZip or something like that and then send it. No transfertime what so ever. The sysop will also be able to connect a C64 in the COM2: port on the pc with a nullmodem cable. So that he can see logon to the PC and see how everything looks on his C64. That is a great deal when you have modded your prompts and would like to see how it really looks like for a caller. And then you can transfer files from the C64 in a easy way. Perhaps quite slow if you don´t have a Swiftlink or a C128 (9600 bps). But then again, there are utilities and tools on how to build a cable and connect a 1541 to the com post on the PC and direct copy files form the 64 diskdrive. --> SKAUNE - Living on The Edge... @>@
The Ultimate C-BBS continue...
But then you might think, the PC has got only 8+3 chars, that will look stupid. But no, the C-BBS has got full length filenames up to 16 chars so that all files will look the same. Great, isn´t it? The program will also be compatibly with the new Novell- Dos version 7.0, which supports longer filenames then 8+3 chars like the standard Dos. But for you guys that don´t have or don´t want to have Novell Dos 7, keep to your old system and that´s fine too, because you will be able to use 16 chars filenames anyway. This is perhaps the best BBS program up to date for C64 users. And this program is expandable beyond imaginations, since you have so much memory to use. This will perhaps be the most popular BBS program too, since it can handle all famous modes like C/G (64 & 128), ANSI (PC/AMIGA), ASCII for all others. And mainly because of the low price of the program, probably to be set around 350 skr or 44 dollars. And you will get alot for your 44 dollars too, a BBS program for C64, PC, AMIGA and a NETWORK module, prompt editor, Cbase 3.0 mail/posts/user converter so that C*Base owners won´t be left behind. I suggest you to buy this program if you want to have the C64 board of the 90´s when NETWORKING is something HOT and will be more and more usual. It can´t be better then this. Get it!

F4CG Eastern Party (for C-64 only!)
Hey dudes! This time the raw guys in FFourCG are arranging a party in Italy! The party is the very first one held in Italy,so try your best to come as it will surely be an awesome situation... The place is in a little town near Udine (which is about 120km from Venice..) called Plsino di Pagnacco (uh!?),with room for no more than 100 people.. This is B-coz this party is just an exper- iment and if we (I) see it goes well, we will arrange a bigger one at the end of June! We don´t wanna say that we have mega-record-breaking prizes for the democompo. just B-coz there won´t be any compo as long as we don´t get atleast 5 groups taking part of it... Instead a music and graphic compo will be held,and as there is NO democompo,the prizes willl (hopefully) be quite high. Entrance: 30DM,35$ Date: 4-5 April (Eastern) The entrance includes free drinks and pizzas as long as we have ones left,also some cafeteria... As the place is so little,there aren´t any shop or bar,but there is one about 200 m far from the place. The partyline will sadly NOT be at the partyplace as well use for it the line of Playboy´s home! It´s prefered that you book a place B-coz if you come and there is no room left,you´lll be kicked out after 11.00 pm. For more detailed information,book a table or for even a map, call: +XX.XXX.XXX.XXX (XXXXXX) Playboy/F4CG Too bad I can´t come Playboy, but I really hope your party is going well coz a pure C-64 would be awesome to join in,hehe!/Enduro The Reformation FairLight
TCC is cancelled!!!
Well as we wrote in the last issue,that we and Horizon would organize the TCC party for the second year is sadly cancelled! Why? The budget didn´t match the plans, we needed about 300.000 SEK (about 40.000$) more to run the party and that was too much, the sponsors couldn´t fill the gap so the party had to be cancelled,but we do still work on a TCC-party for 1995,see you then...

MAGASCENE by Depeh/Antic
Hello scenefolks! I want you all to read this article and wake up and smell the reality! This scene is right now being destroyed by all these fucking magazines around. Why does every fucking group got to have a magazine? I don´t think it´s so very fun to get a sending with 2 or 3 magz on and nothing else... I don´t think is is so very stimulating to read the same charts, same news, same reactions in every single mag. I think that you mag-editors should learn how to code or draw graphics or make music and you should start to make demos instead. We all don´t want a scene with only magazines,do we?? No,ofcoz not... Mark my words when I´m saying that this scene is turning into a magascene! Why can´t two or three magazines go together into one bigger, more fair, better mag or best of all, why not just have one disc- mag were for exaple the 10-20th best magz have joined forces and created a super mag, this would do a mag more objective, more fair in charts, more text each issue! Think about this idea and hopefully some of you will go together to create a supermag, but sadly enough, I think that you out there are far too egoistic to do this... But I can promise you that we would get a far much better scene with more DEMOS around... Depeh/Antic ED´s WORD: Well as I AM a mag-editor, I think i could give Depeh an answer. First of all, the amount of magazines haven´t grown but have de- creased! But why you feel like it only excist magz is becoz there nearly aren´t any demos produced anymore, only a few each month. Not like the old days when there were plenty of demos around, but why aren´t there any demos? The answer is splitted, but my own opinion is following: 1.In the past it took one week to create a demo, it was one filed ones with quite simple code,but scrollers! Nowdays it takes month to create those 1 disc demos with lots of new scene records and design, if anyone releases a smalll demo, nobody likes it, the time has changed! We want big demos in these days which are Amigainspirated (TowerPower), not those small demos from three letter groups like we wanted 1990! 2.The amount of coders have decreased the last year which is naturally as many have left for the Amiga and PC scene. They which not left, are sometimes not qualified to create a BIG superdemo with 15 parts,but can easily code an outfit for a magazine... Well, got it, and further on with your thoughts of a Supermag. That idea is only going to work in the ways of theory,coz the sceners live too far away from each others and would have problems to communicate,even if all got modems! But if it would work, i surely agree with you Depeh! Enduro/FLT The Reformation FairLight
CROSSFIRE by Enduro/FLT
Hmm, where to start this article about the jerk himself: CROSSFIRE/MOTIV 8 Well, as you all can read in the subs of Cyberdome, I and X-fire have a little cute war, but why? Read on... It all started when X-fire let Epic die and founded Motiv 8,where he still is in... We in the Reformation staff got the news that not all Epic-members were informed about the actions and that the group Vision joined up in Motiv 8 too... Well,we printed these news in issue 7 after checking it all out,coz we DON´T print false news in this magazine, but three days after the release I got a note from X-fire called: Correction to #07. In this note he claimed that he sure had informed ALL Epic members in time before the splitting and that only three Vision members did join M8, "the only useful ones"from Vision as X-fire said! He also wrote that if you wanna read true news then read The Pulse (a mag were he is a co-editor in)! I didn´t take too much notice of this note, but would have it in mind and give appologies in the next issue for writing that the whole Vision crew joined M8 and not just 3 of them, yes it´s true, what a crime I did writing those horrible things!! But,then I called Cyberdome and what did I see,X-fire acused Reformation for being a LAMER magazine and that nobody he knows likes it, only lamers do... It was now I became ANGRY on that bastard, why did he write those words I thought and tried to call him up,but he HANGED up,how lame! So from now on I am in a personal war with that creep til he gives the whole Reformation staff an appologie, got that Kim?? Or are you too shy or lame? Enough now, but before you call us lamers,recall your moves when you did put Motiv 8 as number one in the charts of your very own Pulse-magazine... Enduro/FLT The Reformation FairLight
SWAPPMANIA by Bacchus/FLT
Howdy hackers! I´d like to discuss swapping. Why swapping??? I take that swapping may have two purposes; For bigger groups that produce lots of materials of their own, it´s a way of spreading the stuff to a wider audience. Hopefully some of the persons who get the disk will pass it on further. The other alternative is that you want programs someone else has so you send stuff to trade with in order to get the stuff. In both cases there must be an obvious point in having the data on the disk intact. If files on the disk are broken, then there was no point in sending that file at all. And yet, every week I get a few packs with disks that seem like they passed hell and returned. They have opended sleves, no cover sleves, visible defects on the media and so on... Obviously these disks don´t work, or only work partially. Please tell me the reason to send one of those. When I started computing in 85, I spent the same amount of money, buying one disk as I now pay for ten. Also the quality is so much better. Even the highest quality of disks could freak out and be useless to the reciever. So, if disks are so cheap, and the need to pass on the data is the primaty target, why do people send these disks??? I´ll tell you a secret: All copy program I know of have a feature called verify. This function makes the program tell you when it didn´t manage to put the data safely on the disk! Turning verify OFF is saving a time, but the cost in the other end is obvious: You cannot trust the output from your system! I discussed the subject with Surfer/Active, and his opinion was that he only sent the disks, so that the receiver got a look on what Active had produced. As most of them don´t pass the programs on, he could see no use in sending working programs. I guess Surfer could just as well swapp printouts of the directory, which wouldn´t be as wulnerable as the disks. I think this is idiotic! So; * Send -working- disks * Use verify while copying * Use some sort of hard paper to protect the disks * Always send back the stamps! If you cannot fulfill these demands, then don´t bother sending to me. That´s for sure! Bacchus/FLT The Reformation FairLight

NETWORK - PREFACE
What computer network spans the world, offers faster inter- continental transmissions than normal modems, contains giga- bytes of software and is legal? The answer is: Internet! A network built around universities and schools around the world The network is available in just about all cities in Europe, Scandanavia, North and South America, Asia and Africa. In fact, if you´ve been able to see through all the hype about Cyberspace, but still believe that a global computer network is a kewl idea, this is the real life version you want... And it´s mighty kewl! The things you can get hold of on internet is just about everything you might think of, and some things you don´t think of, too! The services available on Internet are divided into several groups: File Transfer: Normally via FTP (File Transfer Protocol) You can log onto sites that keep all goodies in directories, and you can download it for free. Much like normal BBS systems... There are illegal FTP sites too! Multichat: IRC is a system which let people log on and chat with eachother, usually in subgroups such as "hackers", "Elite dudes" or "hen-lovers" Serveral kewl dudes from the PC and AMIGA scenes are regulary chatting on IRC. News: A system of spreading news around the globe. The news are divided into topics, for example comp.sys.amiga.hard- ware and comp.sys.cbm, where dudes like Antitrack and The Chief from the scene write about there ideas and problems. If you need information, and believe somebody knows the answer, just post a question on news. Latests News: there will be a comp.sys.cbm.binaries section where new C64 stuff will be available for downloading! System resources: By using TELNET you can log on to other computers around the globe and run public programs such as file search systems, which let you search for a file around the world, or search for books, by logging into the library of congress. E-Mail: This is a big service, Almost 10 million people are con- nected to e-mail (nobody knows exactly how many!) for example Bacchus, Tron, Watchman, Antitrack, The Chief, most dudes in Triangle and many, many others (President Bill Clinton have e-mail!). The big catch is this: If you only can get e-mail, you can use resources so that the library of congress. How do you get internet access? As said before, almost all cities have a local connection, even though it might only be 2400 Baud to the local computer, the rest of the transfer around the world might reach Mbit speed! If you don´t have the phone#, or haven´t internet access at school, you can always talk to the sysop at the nearest College or University, it shouldn´t be impossible to at least get an e-mail adress. You might have to pay a monthly fee, but then you can use it as much as you want. The big saving is the time to transfer files, and that you usually only have to pay the local area phone toll. I, myself will probably have to pay 150SEK/month for my internet connection at home, but then I´ll have 2 Mbit transfer directly onto my harddisk! It won´t take long to save that money by cutting down on my phone usuage! --> TURN PAGE! TURN PAGE! TURN PAGE! TURN PAGE!

Now over to the connection problem. Most people get their access at their school or university, so find out if there in any internet e-mail available at your school, and if you can get an account. Even if you can´t get ftp, news, telnet, irc or the other services, an e-mail account will give you access to these services inderectly, I will talk about how that is possible later on. If you can´t get e-mail at the school, instution or at work, then you can get an account at a commercial dial-up centre.

Deep Space Nine:
Well, another NEXT GENERATION of the Star Trek Saga. Not Directed by GENE RODDENBERRY but it plays completely in the Original Star Trek Universe.... The Story so far.... Deep Space Nine is a Space Station in the Orbit of a Planet named "Bajo" which was under the Control of a Race named the "Cardassians". As the Cardassians left the Planet they also left their Headquarter Space Station Deep Space Nine. The Bajorans asked the Federation of the United Planets for Help to get their Planet to democracy and to be a Part oof the federation. Cpt.Sisco, is the oone who has to overtak the Station which is a Complete City with Shops and Amusement parts and take it to a Federation Outpost and to Guarantee the Bajorans Freedom and Safety against the Cardasians. Once Arrived with the Enterprise under the Command of the Wellknown Cpt.Jean Luc Picard he directly comes in some trouble as his Peope find a kind of Stabile Wormhole. This Wormhole Guarantees a Kind of Trading Monopole and nearly all Races want this Position for their own. The whole thing comes oout of Control as a Cardassian WarShip and a Federal Space Glider get lost in the Wormhole. Comments: All in all a nice Series, but the Stories are a bit too boring. Most of the Time stupid Blah Blah, but the Special Effects are like from one of the Best Movies ever made. Even the "Next Generation" of Star Trek doesn´t have that ammount of Special Effects which are made with an Amiga 4ooo. Who framed the Vulcans?
Well, a TV Series Directed by Steven Spielberg and sponsored by COMMODORE. The Story so far.... The Date is somewhere in the next Century and Mankind finally discovered the last Mystery on Earth. The Oceans. They settled on the Oceans Ground and several Countrys made Finacial Alliances to get all the Profit from the Grounds of the International Oceans Due to the Fact that there are naturally Borderwars, the Leading Nations found the "United Earth Organisation ´UEO´" With Money they got from Donations the built the biggest Submarine ever, the SeaQuest. A Ship that is 300 Meters Long, the outher Skin is a Lifeform to protect the Ship against the High Pressures of the Deep Waters. As a Female Captain Ignores the commands from the HQ of the UEO Northberg, they try to get one of the Designers named "Jonathan Bridger" as Captain for the Seaquest. Bridger has Quitted the navy Service as his Son and his Wife Died and started to learn Dolphins to Communicate with him. But finally he Takes over the Command of the Ship and is ready for a lot of Adventures. Comments: Well, Due to the Fact that the Series is Sponsored by Commodore it has a fuckin´ lot of kewl Grafixx and Effects. But the Storys mostly Suck Disk. I´m disappointed about Steven Spielbergs work in this Series and better someone should shoot the Storybook Writers...... Lexi/FLT Better watch Melrose Place instead...
The Demo Zone
THE DEMO ZONE (send demos to Oxidy) Page Instrucions: Introducion Page1 Torture III Page2 Tales of Mystery Page3 Hall of Fame Page4 Introduction: For the last issue i reviewed all the demos released at the Herning party 1993. But, for some technical reasons, like errors on the disk we had to skip it. And I´m not very fond of writing it all again. I have a new form of setting points for the demos. I give extra points depending on how many parts there is. Consider, you make a demo with only one part. You make everything almost perfect. That would result in a very high grade for the demo. Therefor I give 2 percents of the score extra for every part. This is just done to make the points more fair. I will also publish all the scores for every issue, and in the end of 1994 we´ll se what demo scored the best during the year. Anyway, For this issue I´ve only got my hands on two demos: Torture III from PADUA Tales of Mystery from SPIRIT Please note: I will only give positive scores for the TURN DISK part. So if there´s only graphics I won´t give any points for code since it would drag down the average score. Oxidy/FLT When will BML next demo be out?
Torture III - Padua
THE INTRO You see some heartbeats and hear some beeps. They go faster and faster and ends with the death of whomever it was. The line divides and goes apart and the beep turns to music. Some text followed by the Grim Reaper, DEATH. It fades away, some more text. A logo is shown and after some seconds blood appears beneath. Fades, more text and a Torture 3 logo. Text and it fades away. Code: 5/10 Gfx: 6/10 Music: 7/10 Design: 7/10 PART 2 First there a short sample saying "Here we are..." sung by Freddie Mercury. Some blue ´padua´-sprites appear on top and bottom and in between a text saying "the stylers are" zooms up. It morphs to "back" and then it all fades away. Code: 5/10 Gfx: 5/10 Music: 7/10 Design: 7/10 PART 3 The screen fades to grey. Then a paperwrapping animation making a hole in the middle. A Padua logo fades up in the hole. The grey sorroundings disappear, the logo changes colors to braun. It stretches upwards and doubles its size. Moves down and get some more colors. It starts to load, after a while sideborder scrolls is shown on the top part of the screen. One infront of the other. Code: 6/10 Gfx: 5/10 Music: 6/10 Design: 7/10 PART 4 The screen goes dark grey. A hand is reaching up on the screen from the lower border. A circle fades forth between its fingers. Some 256 pixel morphings take place inside the circle. On top there´s a lightgrey 1x1 scroller. Code: 6/10 Gfx: 5/10 Music: 5/10 Design: 6/10 PART 5 This part is really weird. That´s mainly because of the strange tune. On top there´s some text written in different colors. Below, three interference circles is shown. Unfortunately it´s not actual interference. After this the part bugs out totally, so I cannot comment this part further. Code: 5/10 Gfx: 3/10 Music: 5/10 Design: 4/10 TURN DISK First a short sample saying "This is not over yet.". A T3 logo is swinging in from the right and stops in the upper left corner. A disc swings from the left and stops in the bottom right corner. Two small turn disk texts slides in and stops in the empty spaces. Gfx: 6/10 Music: 5/10 Design: 6/10 PART 6 This part is almost too simple. On top and bottom there´s a tiny Padua sprite-logo. In between a big charplasma. It fades away... Code: 6/10 Gfx: 3/10 Music: 5/10 Design: 5/10 PART 7 In the middle a raster divides the screen. The lower half is grey, and a Padua logo fades forth. Just over the raster there´s a scroll and on top a seven color bobvector is shown. After a while the bobs turn into a text writer. Code: 7/10 Gfx: 4/10 Music: 5/10 Design: 5/10 PART 8 A red square is shown in the upper left corner. In the upper right there´s some greencolored text giving some information. Below this there´s a Padua logo. In the square they show some scanned pictures. First a C64 followed by a motorcycle. Then a picture of Polonus girlfrind, Beata, and Polonus himself is morphing. Code: 6/10 Gfx: 5/10 Music: 5/10 Design: 6/10 --> When will BML next demo be out? Torture III - Padua cont... THE END PART A fullscreen picture of a rat with a The End logo. A scroll comes out of the right ear and enters the left one. The rat´s right eye blinks. After a while it all fades away and a onecolored simple Padua logo fades up. Some seconds passes and it explodes. Code: 5/10 Gfx: 6/10 Music: 6/10 Design: 7/10 TORTURE 3 - OVERALL Code: (5+5+6+6+4+6+7+6+5)/9 = 5.56 Gfx: (6+5+5+5+3+6+3+4+5+6)/10 = 4.80 Music: (7+7+6+5+5+5+5+5+5+6)/10 = 5.60 Design: (7+7+7+6+4+6+5+5+6+7)/10 = 6.00 Score: (5.56+4.80+5.60+6.00)/4 = 5.49 Amount of parts: 10 Extra: 1.0 + 10 * 0.02 = 1.2 Final Score: 5.49 * 1.2 = 6.59 When will BML next demo be out?
Tales of the Mystery - Spirit
PART 1 First some graphics advertising ´Spirit Entertainment´. It fades away, another picture showing a piece of forest. Next picture appear. Some monks with torches walk on a path up to Stonehenge. Yet another picture, this one with a logo saying: ´Tales of Mystery´ and below a monk is reaching for the sky in some sort of ritual. The monkpart of the picture disappears and it loads. Some of the graphics are converted but atleast they have the courtesy to tell us. Code: 5/10 (Unifier) Gfx: 7/10 (Ans) Music: 8/10 (The Syndrom/TIA/Crest) Design: 8/10 PART 2 In the middle of the screen some scrollers are raytraced upon a ball above. Below, some trees on each side of a square where a number of pictures are shown. Code: 8/10 (Unifier) Gfx: 7/10 (Ans,Cane) Music: 8/10 (Cane) Design: 7/10 PART 3 On top of the screen we have (again) some trees with a square in the middle. In the square we have some shade-line-vectors. A new effect. Underneath this a Spirit logo with some kind of movie- flasher. On top of the graphics there´s an expanded spritescroller. Code: 8/10 (Unifier) Gfx: 6/10 (Ans) Music: 7/10 (Dos) Design: 7/10 PART 4 First of all a FLI-picture slides in from the right and slides out after some seconds. A halfscreenpicture of some eyes and two hands reaching against us. Between the hands a small Spirit logo. Below this there´s some scrollers on top of a 2 screen wide AFLI-mover. Just one thing I dislike, the effect is too far to the right. I know it´s not possible to centre it, but it sure looks ugly. Code: 8/10 (Rcc) Gfx: 7/10 (Ans) Music: 7/10 (Cane) Design: 6/10 PART 5 An IFLI picture is shown. Nothing more to say. Since this isn´t actually a part I won´t count the code in this one. Gfx: 8/10 Music: 8/10 Design: 3/10 PART 6 Two logos appear on the middle of the screen. One saying ´Tales of´ and one saying ´mystery´. They move apart and stop at the top and bottom of the screen. On the right middle part of the screen some text explains what´s happening. In the middle a poor starfield with some vectorbobs. After a while you get some filled vectors. And as the final they put it all together. Vectorbobs with filled vectors around it. Looking good... Code: 9/10 (Rcc) Gfx: 5/10 (Ans,Cane) Music: 8/10 (Dos) Design: 8/10 TALES OF MYSTERY - OVERALL Code: (5+8+8+8+9)/5 = 7.60 Gfx: (7+7+6+7+8+5)/6 = 6.67 Music: (8+8+7+7+8+8)/6 = 7.67 Design: (8+7+7+6+3+8)/6 = 6.50 Score: (7.60+6.67+7.67+6.50)/4 = 7.11 Amount of parts: 6 Extra: 1.0 + 6 * 0.02 = 1.12 Final score: 7.11 * 1.12 = 7.96 When will BML next demo be out?
