RIP -ME- of TEX (Udo Fischer)

Postby AtariFan » Sat Oct 29, 2016 9:22 pm

ES of TEX informed me about the passing away of -ME- of TEX in the night before sunday, October 23rd 2016. Udo had been diagnosed with brain tumor last April.

I've never met him in person or contacted him online, but I still feel connected to him through the images and texts about TEX/ Thalion which I processed for my website. It's a great loss. Rest in peace...

Very sad news :( :( :(

-ME- productions were so brilliant! They were one of the first demos I've seen back in the days (around 1987)...

Condolences to his family and thanks for all the stuffs he made for the Atari community. Rest in peace :(

This is very shocking... without him... who knows if there would be a ST demoscene like we have it today.

"... at the end of which -me- from the exceptions will explain how to use border-scrolling techniques!!"
How many times did I read the whole scrolling of the BIG demo ? Seeing the walls scrolling after that, just to be able to reach the part of the scroll where the 60/50 Hz switch was explained, quickly taking note on a paper. And how many hours did I watch the Little Color Demo in 1988, stunned by the colors on the screen and the way it pushed the "normal" specs of the Atari ST ? Even watching it today brings me 28 years back in time with the same feelings.

Sad news, certainly one of the pionners of the ST demo history, who motivated so much people to code harder and push the ST, we owe him a lot !
