Stay Atari :D

Happy you can be, you just, like in the old days, managed to gather rather unknown people one to each other and make them spent time doing one of the most useless and beautiful thing in the computer world : A fuckin' megademo !
It's been quite a while since we haven't seen one of these on the atari scene.
It may be the grand re-opening season for old school megademo. (am i teasing ? :P ).
And remember : Old's kool.

By the way, may we call a megademo : Odd school ? (this name just jumped on me right now)
Was known as Ozone-design in Cerebral Vortex back in the good ol'years

Same here with the DCK demo . change your TOS to v1.02, or v1.04 and it will work fine under STEEM.
My main site: http://www.mug-uk.co.uk - slowly digging up the bits from my past (and re-working a few): Atari ST, Sega 8-bit (game hacks) and NDS (Music ripping guide).

I develop a free Word (for Windows) add-in that's available for Word 2007 upwards. It's a fix-it toolbox that will allow power Word users to fix document errors. You can find it at: http://www.mikestoolbox.co.uk

Strange - i clearly remember having problems with TOS 2.06 on Mr.Nours DCK although 1.62 worked fine.
And a older (non-STE) TOS lead to an "this is no STE" error message.
DCK seems to be a bit weird in that respect ;)

I sure would have if i could see any other screen
I cannot select anything from the mainmenu. What to do

I have tried Saint, Steem, Winston

Winston crashes
Steem doesn't allow me to select any demos
Saint doesn't either

What configuration should i use, Emulator and TOS speaking

By the way, A nice touch not to bclr.b #0, $484

Best Regards

I liked DCK for the coolnes
and fake raster for simplicity,
the most.

Music I liked the one by Bruno

Best graphic for me was the
one by tobe.

And only 3d (Wow!) by Orion.

thanks a lot,
