TT-Hires demo by .tSCc. December 28th, 2008

hi everyone,

this is ray typing. since i didn't have any ATARI related releases this year which i thought is a pitty i decided to make up a little slideshow for the TT030 featuring some specific interlacing-mode i made up a while ago which is capable of displaying 1280x480 pixels and 32 colors per scanline (at a flickering 30Hz refresh rate as a natural drawback).

The minimal configuration to run the program is a TT030 (32Mhz) 4+4MB ram and a VGA-monitor, of course.

The timing is quite critical so don't expect it to run on old daughterboard
(16 Mhz??) TTs, or with the cache turned of. the pictures shown are not particularly christmas/new year's related or anything just some random stuff collected via google's image-search, so i hope i won't get sued by anyone :).

The demo also features a 50Khz stereo sample-loop lasting roughly 20 seconds and which is taken from omar rodriguez album "calibration" (the song is called "las agrimas de arakuine") - some _incredible_ drumming by thomas pridgen on that track... go check it out in case you're interested.

A little VU-meter is displayed in the lower screen area as well so i didn't have any CPU-time left for a scroller - at least unless i would have used some much more complicated code. so no scroller this time... sorry.
you can exit the slideshow hitting space as usual.
each image is lz77-packed, but nonetheless the executeable takes about 3Mb of diskspace. if you don't have the possibility to transfer files of this size to your machine don't even bother (ghostlink is a bad idea i assume), otherwise enjoy.
