Battle of the Bits Invitro
  Oct 6th 2017 7:53am
recommended emulator: bgb

NOTE: Part of this demo is currently broken on hardware. We are currently working on a fix.

Here's something a bit different for you: an actual ROM submitted to a major battle!

This is a simple one-screen intro which serves as an invite to Battle of the Bits. The coding was done by me and Pigu/pigdevil2010. Everything else (music, gfx, scroller text, etc.) was done by me.

For all you renderists out there: Please do not upload an MP3 render for this entry, as there's more to it than just music. A YouTube encode would be greatly appreciated, but make sure that if you do so, you record from real hardware (preferrably an original Game Boy or SGB) or a good emulator (such as bgb).

re: th4 D34D - Actually that bit was done by pigdevil2010/Pigu. Glad you liked teh demo though (even if it is currently broken on hardware...)

EDIT: I've applied a small fix for the scroller sometimes blacking out briefly. The current build is on I'm not updating the build here until I have a fix for the part that's broken on hardware.

EDIT2: i would have added a rotating cube but i got Lazy™

VBA and KIGB are ok GameBoy emulators, but Gambatte is the best one I have. For rendering my GB stuff, I use VBA-M.

Fuck yes, a demoscene intro, i love those.
does the effect you mentioned also break on btb?

post #90820 :: 2017.09.26 7:54pm
The effect "works" in bgb (where all development work was done, making it hard to debug >:C)

("Works" is in quotation marks because it works in BGB, but not on hardware.)

DevEd, in the demoscene these days "AMIGAAAAAA" is as much of a generic battlecry of approval, as it is a direct reference to a certain 68k-based computer. So in this sense, I rate this prod "AMIGAAAAAAAAA!"
