STOS demos from MEGA

Postby exxos » Thu Sep 09, 2004 7:03 pm

HI all,

After digging around in my collection, I have found all the source codes for MEGA Diskzine plus all the Intro that the crew did (used or otherwise) all coded in STOS.

Would there be any interest on releasing the source codes ? If there is enough interest I will team up with a few people and make a nice MEGA demo all coded in STOS!

I did notice that MEGA didn't run to great under STeem, but it does run, kinda.....

I'm sure a site with STOS demo source code would be a welcome addition to the web.

There's more than enough GFA sites out there :)

I never used GFA :)

I did host a while bunch of STOS stuff years ago, along with everything STOS related, and diskzines etc.

I thought it would make a nice STOS coding disk with good intros and all the source code for them. This will take some time to do, I can't spend *too* much time on it, also not going to explain it all line by line cos that would take forver ;-)

IF anyone has some nice STOS snippets which they would like to include then let me know and we;ll get a few people on the go with it :)

Include the stuff that's *not* on Floppyshop CDs then .. it'll be more useful if it's from a good "3rd party"

LAPDD345 VISUAL ONSLAUGHT (STE ONLY) by Global Reflex. Allegedly one of the
best STOS demos ever. It features unlimited sprites, 3D, fractals, starfields
and whizzy lines

LAPDD333 MEGADAZ MEGADEMO II by Daz. Run of the mill demo coded is STOS. Half
a dozen demos accessible by moving your pacman character around the screen and
avoiding the ghost.

LAPDD378 DELIRIUM by Orbital Software. A multi-screen mega STOS demo.

LAPDD376 VEXIRIK (2 DISKS) A two disk mega-demo coded in STOS (some screens
need 1mb).

LAPDD365 SYNERGY EXPERIENCE by Exel. A 100% STOS coded demowith screens
called 3D-Wire, Big Brother, Multi Screen, The Tracker and
Circlesquare

LAPDD353 MANIC D/S by the Opposition. A STOS coded demo in which you have to
drive a little motorcar around a road system via the keyboard to find the
different demo screens.

LAPDD308 DDT STOS COLLECTION 1MB A collection of three STOS demos by DDT. They
are the political demo, a collection of digitised 'Spitting Image' voices,
The Bishop demo and the Secret Lemonade Drinker, a digitising of the R.
Whites TV ad.

LAPDD288 RETINAL BURN by The Asylum. Sub-titled 'The Best STOS demo', here are 9
screens of incredible programming with the STOS BASIC language. The screens
are Three dimensional Sphere, Mini-Parallax II, Fonk Load of Nothing, STOS
Tracker Extension, Not so large demo, Ice Cool, Woofen'n'Tweeter, Matter
Transporter (Copier) and Who the bugger's this Bob dude anyway?


LAPDD267 COR BLIMEY A mega-demo by Storm written entirely in STOS 2.6.
There are 13 demo screens in all on the disk, these being Scrolly Lines,
Sea Sick Lines, Clouds, Tracking and Bop Ba Bop Ba Ba by Dattrax, a
Megascroller by the Watchmen, Wiggle it, Big-screen Challenge, Balls,
Super Scroll Line, Whizzy Thing, Megascroll and Big Exit by Storm.


LAPDD265 BETTER THAN LIFE by Flair and Clockwork Orange. Not the game, we
wouldn't sell that on account of the health risk, but a demo. There are some
nice screens in this demo that lend weight to the authors claim that they're
the best STOS programmers around. There are 11 screens in all, two of them
being guest screens by Storm and Mutant

LAPDD207 CYBERPUNK by NETWORK. A good seven screen demo written in the STOS
language. Digi-music,bouncing sprites, etc.



unfortunatly they are £3.50 EACH plus P+P :-(

Thats one thing I always found with LAPD - the price was a bit much for many things. although they did have nice conentent and I did like their disk catalogue...

One or two of those titles you memntion there I know I was going to order many moons ago

You sure they're not on the Floppyshop CDs MoA?

Also found a couple of "rare" demos .. On The Bog Demo (think it's in STOS) .. and a few others that were sent direct to me many moons ago.

Are there actually any active STOS coders still out there ???

It would be nice to have some sort of input into the project!

If I ever get my CT60 working in my falcon STOS would make a nice toy to place with with extra speed! The falcon STOS extentions are already really good, I did as many of you probably forget start to code on the falcon a long time ago, heres my BETA Demo I did a while ago. You need a stock Falcon030 to run it.

IF there are any STOS coders who are interested in joining our effort for a STOS MEGA DEMO, then I will setup a small E-mailing list so other ppl in the crew can keep track on whats going on!

Hi mate - Ive just replied to your other thread (sorry, mOa's thread). No luck im afraid tho :( No-one's missing anything tho - they were rubbish (they used generic STOS sprites so theres your first clue ;) )

EDIT: hold on Ive got the image but none of the .PRG files work properly - could be wrong TOS or something. i'll post it up so someone can have a play.

I also coded the 2-disk VEXIRIK MEGADEMO in STOS - that was much better - and I believe i have it on my HDD somewhere...

More classics from the bottom of the well :)

Whether they're crap or not, it's another missing demo brought out of non-existence.

well the image itself works - it crashes out upon load (the intro in the AUTO folder just crashes out anyway) and all the .PRG files just bomb out or reboot the ST.
I could be wrong about this, but didnt STOS have the facility (before the Compiler Extension came out) to generate a .PRG file from your Basic programs, but which weren't standalone? Or were they standalone but STOS just included itself in the file? or something...
Either way this image is all Ive got left... :cry:

Try copying the files (assume there's not a special bootsector installed) a few at a time onto another 720K disk on your ST and then onto your PC and make up a fresh image?

They all crash out on my STEEM setup with 1MB and tried it under TOS v1.0. v1.02 and v1.62 (STE).

Ah well .. short of sending the original floppy disk to someone else with an ST to image it up, it's a dead-un. None of the files are working as all give 3 or 4 bombs when loading.
