the amiga demo scene

Hits: 54

The Scene : Historically, the scene was born with the C64 computer. It was a group of peoples, all around the globe, who were much more interested in exploring the capacities of their machines (and at the same times theirs !) than simply playing games. They wanted to know/show how much pixels could be written on the same image in a certain amount of time (every 1/50 second, the “VBR” time, or if you prefer the time needed for the electron beam of your tv to go from the pixel in the top-left of the screen to the bottom-right, and go back to its first place). On PAL (european machines), this is 1/50 of a second (a little bit less on NTSC -us- machines). This is synchronized with the AC power outlet. This amount of time was the kingdom of the demomakers.

Thoses sheets were putted into a “reader” that send the informations to the really not powerfull calculator. Read More

Hits: 80

Amiga was a computer family which had its glory time in 1990’s. The name of the first designed amiga-machine was “Amiga 1000” or “A1000”. It included a 256Kb memory, 1 3,5″ disk drive, a desktop tower, a mouse and a keyboard. It could be linked to your tv screen. The “kickstart” (the main system software libraries and procedures) came on a disk (the followers came with it ONBOARD, on chips that are called ROMS). The other main models were : A500, A600, A2000, A3000, A1200 and A4000. Below are photos and characteristics of each model. Some people consider the Amiga family as the most innovative personal computer range ever made, even more than Apple and IBM. Read More
