  • Flashtros & C64 SID music from AS3/Alchemy

    flashtroI came across a great site called Flashtro. It’s a collection of classic demo scene / warez scene intros and cracktros, recreated in Flash. There are 21 different intros on offer ranging from cracktros such as the Mandala Studio crack by Scoopex, to the “beauty” (*cough*) that is the Pang 100% Trainer by PROJ Inc (coder colours FTW!).

    New intros seem to be released on a semi-regular basis, so I’ll definitely keep this one in my bookmarks and check it out now and again. Perhaps they may even accept someĀ  “guest tro’s” from me? (although I’d rather redo Atari ST demos!) :)

    Here’s a shot from the Scoopex one:


    C64 SID Music from AS3 / Alchemy

    On a similar retro scene theme I found a brand new C64 SID Chip player written in AS3 by the always inspirational UnitZeroOne. It’s a port of the Linux TinySID library (which is where Alchemy came in) with a minimal front-end interface to show it off. Flash Player 10 is required. Replay quality is great and it weighs in at around 150KB. Sadly the source is not yet released, the usual “it’s a mess, I only threw it together in a few hours” excuse is given :) but I can appreciate that, although I’d still probably sell my Mother for it.

    Now if only I could find the time (and skill) to try and do something similar for an SNDH YM2149 replayer!
