Title: Rob feat th4 D34D - Work Without Rules - A Megadrive demo by Minerscale


We present to the BotB fam, a very special Megadrive demo!
Music by Rob and th4 D34D, demo coded by Minerscale. Art assets created by Minserscale and Th4 D34D (plus Delta Razero and Tobikomi on the intro logos).

Inspired by all the excellent Nintendo demo action lately, stirred up by DevEd, Pigu and AugustusBlkheart, we decided to bring the action over to the FM competition. Rob laid down some sweet melodies, bumpin bass lines and smooth rhythms. Th4 D34D extended, added to the piece, and adjusted the sound design aspects. Then a very busy Minerscale went to work coding and creating the Megadrive demo from scratch! All programming, production and editing was handled by Minerscale himself (while simultaneously finishing school projects and trying to stay sane) while th4 D34D helped out with the seamless backgrounds and editing a couple other art assets. Finished just in time!

You can view a video render of the demo here (uploaded for this battle):

And check out the source code:

Thank you for listening/watching!

The rom will only work in KEGA Fusion and the track will absolutely not work correctly at all in Gens/Kmod (the visuals will be intact, but the audio is heavily glitched).

Jebus. That was a lot of work. Unfortunately, none of us has an everdrive. If you have a mega everdrive and you live in a PAL region (I made it for PAL because:
A: I live in a PAL region
B: The 16px extra vertical resolution
C: The extra CPU time per frame. 60hz vs 50hz
D: PAL is the more stable superior format.)

It would be great if you could record it on hardware!

Also the parallax scrolling part has to be my favorite one, really nice background art and cool colors, wonder who did that one

Wow, i've missed this one too =O Coincidentally i'm getting a mega everdrive pretty soon! I'm focused on Nomad now but of course i have a PAL Mega Drive at home too, so i'm going to test it if the everdrive arrives - someone may be quicker tho =P

Thaaank you everyone again! The thank yous/shout-outs list in the demo is really from all of us. Thank you for making BotB such an enjoyable time. I also meant to include some people that we forgot to mention (such as AugustusBlkheart!) but really the list includes all of botb. The demo might have been more extravagant, but we did it all in a pretty short amount of time with Minerscale handling all of the rom coding/compiling. I'm still really happy with it as it is, and am proud to have been a part of it.
...demo tourney would be nice some day ;D
