Have you ever thought about what you can do with only 4096 bytes... or less?
Here is our suggestion with 3744 bytes... the first ever 4KB intro for the NeoGeoCD. Everything comes from the PRG-file.
It's called: No Neo - No Party!

Wow I like it, and incredible for less than 4k. Reminds me of the bootloader demos you'd get on the Amiga. Great work!

Nicely packed, switching palettes bank for window effect? smile

Truly amazing !!!

Sorry for the late reply but I'm very busy at the moment with my patreon-project. :-)

Here are some facts, for those who are curious:
- binary (includes data) = 34.886 bytes
- fix = 2.912 bytes (a complete new font!)
- spr = 2.816 bytes (plasma, twister, checkerboard)
- z80 = 6.754 bytes (based on Leonards Z80 but highly optimized & Timer based)
- binary (packed) = 3.200 bytes + header & startup
- everything in realtime 50Hz, no precalculation!
- does not use vblank, instead LSPC-wait
- plasma 81*32 (0x0FFF)
- transparent (blue) layer is based on palette switching

more will come next year! ;-)

Hey Blastar,
Do you use a special screen mode ?
Is this screen mode enable for all neo geo console or only for the cd ?

hi,
no special screenmode used... because there is no other screenmode unless you distinguish between pal and ntsc.
this demo uses some tricks (eg the plasma, the blue transparent bars & blobs) but of course this is also possible on aes/mvs.

I would be interested in how you did that smile I assume that it's very hard to do given that you can't have a true bitmapped mode, right?
