ST NEWS Magazine

A few months ago, Richard Karsmakers, the man behind the legendary ST NEWS Disk Magazine, contacted me asking me to help out with remaking some of the demoscreens and scrolling messages from the original volumes. I was only too happy to help out. 
Richard has been further helped out by DYNO who has also made several screens for this great project.
Please see below the various screens, and suite of scrollers I have made! :-)

ST NEWS Volume 4.3 MONOCHROME Screen
(The above link also has a WEBGL shader effect of an Atari SM124 Mono Monitor overlay!)

ST NEWS Various Scrolltext / Music Screens
There are about 10 or 12 of these, an example of one is below...

ST NEWS Volume 4.1

ST NEWS Volume 3.7

ST NEWS Volume 4.4 Digi-Routine

Pandora cracktro by Dexion from the C64

Yesterday I saw this cool C64 intro, with some great SID music - and it was so good in fact, I thought I'd better do a CODEF version of it, so I did!

Some nice fluid swinging moves, especially on the rasters within the main logo, and nice raster effects on the text, plus a kick-ass tune to boot! Enjoy!

Ghosts N' Goblins Amiga cracktro by Defjam

Needed a quick CODEF fix yesterday, so found a nice little cracktro by DEFJAM for Ghosts N' Goblins, it had a cool tune, and a nice text effect/font and colour table... so here it is!

As always, Enjoy! :-)

Wild Guns SNES cracktro by TRSI remake

I wanted to do another quick remake, and perhaps choose something a little different.... so I found this quick cracktro by TRSI from the SNES for Wild Guns! Seeing as I havn't done a SNES remake yet, it seemed a good choice - nothing too challenging, just some nice music and colours on the logo! As always, enjoy!

Spiderman Dreamcast cracktro by Echelon

Back to the Sega Dreamcast for my next remake fix! :-)

This screen has been kicking around for a few months, mainly because I couldn't get the scrolltext effect to work correctly...

In the end, I binned the idea I had using a "pre-made script", and after speaking with Antoine "NoNameNo" Santo (AKA The CODEF Master), wrote a bespoke routine to process the scrolltext, which gave me the effect I wanted.

.XM replay came courtesy of Jurgen Wothke, and graphics ripped from a ROM dump of the original crack!

Enjoy this cool cracktro!
