I guess not, he seems to be Hungarian (the ‘Creators’ Rattlehead)… this one seems to be the guy behind RattleCopy etc. and was Belgian (I guess, or Dutch!).
And that is still the worst font I’ve ever seen 🙂

Is Rattlehead the same guy as in this Creator intro?

Comparing Belgians and Dutch? — Not a good idea 🙂

Close enough for a "Dutch color scheme" (:-)

Our fellow coders in here keep on cheering for technical achievements … Well, first vectorballs or not, who cares about it as long as it hurts the eye …
BS1 kept on combining weird color schemes in their releases along the way … like mixing neon Green, Blue and Yellow or an aggressive red combined with depressive blue …Argh, combined with other shitty GFX elements and non-compelling SFX this is definitely a Designers nightmare!

BS1 was a Belgian group indeed and given I am Belgian, I refuse to accept this piece of work was done by Belgians 🙂 – The only way one could possibly accept a tiger print font is when it was done by a lady? 🙂

Well.. I liked the stars and the background is OK but yeah, the font sucks ass, im sure its just some rush job (well hopefully). If the intro had a better font, i think it would of been quite good. also doesn’t keep in line with their older stuff no

Coding by Rattlehead? He of Telstar I presume?

Anyway, back to that intro. Tiger print font, has never looked such a bad idea. In fact, the mere mention of it should have been enough to stop the GFX artist in his tracks.

If its not Tiger print, then its Brain print, and thats equally as yeuch!

Considering what BS1 can do, this is pretty nasty. Always loved the simple but elegant style of the Grand Prix one by BS1, and that font in that intro was lovely.

This one…. not so much!

With a decent font, that scroll movement might have looked cool? And maybe the logo in the top half of the screen. But then it wouldn’t have been so memorable 🙂

Ok.. it is not eye candy but at least the scroller has some big ass fonts blitted around. BS1 did some kick ass crack intro like #1, #2, #3 and #4.

I don’t mind the colours or the tune or the movement on the scroller that much but that font is so bad it just kills all the passable stuff stone dead. A shame 🙁

pretty ugly, and it looks like this must be from a new decade of BS1 members 🙁
old BS1 intros were one of the best, in technical and design terms.
I always looked up to Lord Blitter and The Big Fat Lamer for their cool and stylish intros.

And BS1 were always from belgium 🙂

A Dutch color scheme from a Dutch group, who would’ve "thunk" it! (:-)

Hilarious.

hehe i have quite a few disks with golden BS1 stickers 🙂

I think BS1 had some of the best crack intros for their time compared to most other groups but this one really sticks out as one of their worst 🙂

@Wayne: Hi mate, I dont see you much on IRC, I agree that the font is complete shit

As said some years earlier … I am still waiting for the first decent looking BS1 intro!
As if the previous releases weren’t already ugly enough … lol

Well… can’t say we weren’t warned…I was sitting there thinking "it doesn’t look *that* bad… OHMYGODWHATISTHAT!". I’ve never seen this intro before, and after thinking about it for a while I don’t think I’ve ever seen a worse font before either 🙂
