The B.I.G. Demo by The Exceptions from the Atari ST

Hey everyone, I'm sure you're aware that a few years back Antoine 'NoNameNo' Santo converted about 90% of the B.I.G. Demo into CODEF, but never had the time to finish it (i.e. the 4 additional screens, nor the Digital Dept. were not included). About 3 years ago I remade the Digital Department screen (with the help of the SC68 player by Juergen Wothke), but it's only recently I have finally decided to put the two screens together, and add the missing elements of the B.I.G. Demo to finally bring you the FULL experience of this incredible and classic old-school Atari ST Demoscreen to your browser window! I hope you enjoy!

Thanks as always to Juergen for all of his hard work!

The 24 Hour Screen by TCB from Syntax Terror

Time to go back to the ST! I saw on a Facebook Group the other day, an old TCB screen I had long forgotten about, so decided that it deserved the CODEF remake treatment.... so here it is, the 24 Hour Screen by TCB from the Syntax Terror demo!

Hope you enjoy it as much as you may have done first time around! :-)

Oracle Ball Scroller

Hey! I thought it was time for a new remake, and saw a cool post on one of the Cracktro pages showing a cool screen by Oracle, called Ball Scroller..... so here it is, is CODEF form! Right-click to change songs (as per the original), and lots of cool bubble-type graphics! Enjoy!

Atari ST Quartet music webaudio playback with CODEF

Does anyone reading this remember the Atari ST four channel digi-sample playback software QUARTET? 

It was marketed by Microdeal, and was "kind of" the first ST version of the four channel digi sounds as used on the Amiga with Soundtracker (although the actual Soundtracker software came to the ST a short while later). In the meantime, Quartet was used for games and demos, and unusually was based on the traditional music stave system unlike the sequencer style of the various Sound Trackers.

Anyway, enough history - thanks once again to Juergen Wothke, and his amazing UADE players, a recent update means now Quartet tunes are now supported. As demonstrated in my CODEF example here...

Enjoy the retro goodness! :-)

TCB Tracker webaudio playback with CODEF

Using the latest version of the UADE player by Juergen Wothke (as used in his PlayMOD project), I was able to add-in the TCB Tracker support into the webAudio UADE - so now Atari ST fans can playback their favourite 4 channel digi tunes, made with the TCB Tracker! Yay!

Head over to my website to see a working demo...

Enjoy! :-)

WebAudio SunVox Player!

Using the latest webaudio player by Jürgen Wothke, for the SunVox system, here is my obligatory CODEF re-jig!

Thanks as always to Jürgen for all of his hard work, and allowing us to share his code!

On many of the demoscreens I have written, in order to achieve the various effects, I use a command called globalCompositeOperation.

We can not only draw new shapes behind existing shapes but we can also use it to mask off certain areas, clear sections from the canvas (not limited to rectangles or simple shapes) and more.

globalCompositeOperation = type

This sets the type of compositing operation to apply when drawing new shapes, where type is a string identifying which of the twelve compositing operations to use.

If you goto the link below, the various types of operation can be tested and seen in use.

Alpha Flight Jungle Dreams 3 Intro from the Amiga

Today's remake is another one from the Commodore Amiga, this time it's Alpha Flight, and their "Jungle Dreams #3" Pack Disk Intro which has it's day in CODEF!

Nice little tune, and a nice look - also a quick 90 minute remake! :-) Enjoy!

Paragon 28 Amiga Intro

I recently saw a cool BBS Packdisk Intro from the Amiga, Paragon 28 - just loved the ideas in it - a great tune, nice font, and some really cool EQ bars! So I thought I just HAD to do a quick remake! 

I hope you enjoy it...

eSWAT cracktro by Paradox from the Commodore Amiga

I saw a cool cracktro today, by Paradox - for the game eSWAT from the Amiga, so I thought I'd have a go at a quick remake - and two hours later it was done!

I had to rewrite the CODEF scrolltext .js library in order to achieve the scroller effect, but only took about 10 minutes, so you'll find in the code of this one a link to a new "codef_cos_scrolltext.js" which allows for a "bounce effect" on the scrolline (horizontal only)!

I hope you enjoy this latest remake!

EDIT: Added touch events for iOS devices, as well as soft buttons to simulate mouse left and mouse right clicks (also for iOS users), and a variable opening text - device dependant.

Just thought I'd post something I was working on with Spot on recently.... the UP ROUGH AMP!

Image may contain: text

Our homage to WINAMP I guess, written in CODEF, and using the UADE webplayer by Jürgen Wothke!
Starts with a sample playlist, drag and drop your own tunes if you wish! If they contain multiple tracks, you can skip thru the tracks - choose from several different EQs, and some mini scrollers etc..
Take a look, have a play and see what you think!
Code by me (AKA Mellow Man)
