Hi, this is Daniel here. Me and Matt worked lots on this demo to get it out at all. It’s an intro to introduce Digital Infinity, which you SBCNet guys have been hearing about for quite a while. I really got tired and felt guilty about having my LD distributors wasting their money for calling when the demo was not even here…so I am releasing it. We had MUCH more planned for the scroll and also for the vector dots to speed them up. Sorry if it doesn’t run on your computer. I really don’t think you’ll get a smooth run on anything less than a 386DX-33. We’re working….
And, although I have not had time to refine all sharp edges in the demo, it is still pretty cool as is. For example, there are still a few bugs to be worked out of the circling trellis grid underneath the scroller…
If your computer IS too slow, go try using DIFTRO /? to check the command line parameters. These allow you to turn off certain options. The biggest CPU gobblers are the vector-dot letters, so if the scroll does not run smoothly, go turn off the vector dot rotation to look at the scroll.
This demo does NOT support SB or compatibles!! Only GUS music. Sorry. If you want to hear the wonderful music, go to a friend’s house and listen there. Next demo (despite what the scroller says) WILL HAVE SUPPORT FOR ALL THE DMA CARDS WE CAN GET OUR HANDS ON!!!!! (and have time to make a driver for of course :).
In this demo we are using an old version of GUSMOD that I have performed some personal bug-fixes on… This is a temporary music workaround so that we can have music at all until our real driver is finished…
On the topic of GUS support, this demo will work with 256k of GUS RAM!!! Hope you guys who have not upgraded your memory on your GUS enjoy this.
