I have always loved Sinclair ZX Spectrum‘s characteristic tape loading method using yellow/blue stripes in the border. Contrary to Amstrad CPC‘s humble block-by-block loader with no visual feedback on screen, Spectrum offered a feast for the eye! So sexy, so catchy…
Yep, it’s Christmas time!
I made a surprise visit to Alcofribas to mark the 25th anniversary of our Amstrad CPC brotherhood. And, what a “smoky” party we had!
Keeping my fingers crossed for the 50th anniversary 😉
Welcome back to 8-bit days 🙂
The day Alcofribas kindly invited me to the 10th anniversary of 7DX Demo Party, I knew that I had to do something special for this event. Hosting Turkish demosceners for 10 years via enormous amount of hard work and very limited resources, certainly deserves support!
Since there has never been an official Amstrad release before at demo parties in Turkey, I decided to go back to my roots -early 80s- where I used to do a lot of 8-bit assembly language coding. I thought, writing a simple Amstrad intro in 256 bytes would be great. – (Yep, size does matter!)
