Unfortunately, Edwin died a few years ago. Luckily there was nobody here to see a big man crying. It was IKARI’s intros and Edwin’s music that inspired me to learn more about computers. Edwin’s music in particular was the catalyst to my curiosity. Ironically, his music always had an undertone of sadness to it, as if playing of times long past, or that which is unavoidable and must come to pass. The motif is always there, throughout his work. The world has truly lost another artist who in small and modest ways did great contributions to humanity and inspired many… Read more »

Yeah, saw at least a few by Bod, but compared with other things at that time, it as far from being the IKARI quality from the C64.

I know WayneK 🙂 But at that time, there were tons of cracking groups, and sometimes i had like 10 versions of the same title, by 10 different groups. HEHE! My point is that lots of those "stars" that coded and cracked on C64 didn’t really success on the Amiga. Take Fletch and Excell, just to name them like i did the last time, they did do any magic on the Amiga. Releases, sure, but not true cracks or cool cracktros. Of course there are exceptions. I myself was active on the C64 and moved later on to Amiga, but… Read more »

Well I know it takes time to learn new platforms, and c64 guys were in their ‘comfort zone’ w/ 65xx code… but there wasn’t that big a difference for eg: suppliers (if you worked in a software store or distributors, a game for 1 format is like any other since we’re talking about the days before warpers/modems (at least before they were in common use)). Some ex-c64 guys were the Atari ST demo scene pioneers (see how influenced by c64 early TEX demos were on ST, for example), and of course Bod/Talent was an early Accumulators member… not mentioning the… Read more »

Some effect in the darkness, could have made this a HUGE classic, but yet i showed that when it came to craktros, then Fletch and Excell knew how to make them right 😉

With Zen, less is more, and I think IKARI was really good at getting more out of less in their intros.

WayneK and plaguies: Well Ikari did actually go Amiga, but when you’re a strong team and not every member has the possibility to jump to a platform, where you’re naked, especially when it came to learn 68000. So suppliers and crackers from the Commodore 64 section had to seek additional help and things can easy change, when you’re all of the sudden not amongst the best anymore. Still take in consideration, that some of the members from Ikari formed Legend on Amiga and some went back to the Commodore 64 and started Legend there. But that’s just Ikari, it was… Read more »

True, true… I remember when I first started coding on the Amiga, trying to wrap my head around the fact that there was no video RAM… wait, what? How can there be no video RAM? How is the picture displayed on the screen then? And how do I change the color of the border? How silly… Amiga was a completely different architecture, a multitasking, multiprocess architecture, and a lot of the implementation drew from UNIX, where everything was dyamically allocated and where there was no such thing as fixed memory. This was a huge paradigm shift in programming for people… Read more »

@Wayne: Yeah, I never understood why *all* the major groups didn’t just form Amiga branches and at the same time take in new members who wanted to specialize in Amiga. Why all the kooks saying, "This is my last c64 release, I am ‘going Amiga’".

But in any case, classic cracktro.

…Because unlike the United States, where consumer electronics were always cheap and abundant, owning a home computer was a luxury proposition in Europe. For example, I had to sell my C=128D, went through running several businesses, earned money by working whole Summer long AND reselling hardware on the side on top of working full time, just to be able to buy my first Amiga 500. Then, I had to resell about 10 more Amigas, including my brand new A500, just to be able to make up the difference so that I could buy my 1st Amiga 1200. Most households even… Read more »

Awesome logo for it’s time and personally do still like it a lot, brilliant music and good font. Overall a really great intro. Some effect in the darkness, could have made this a HUGE classic, but yet i showed that when it came to craktros, then Fletch and Excell knew how to make them right 😉

Thanks for the years guys and thanks to TStorm for bringing back memories 😉

A lot of c64 sceners came to Amiga in various guises… but yes I’m surprised the c64 groups didn’t just form Amiga divisions and continue under the same name (for the most part, I know there were a few who did).
As for the intro, nothing too special and I don’t really like the music, but I like the rasters and sining text so no real complaints 🙂

Really nice. I went straight to Amiga (from um ZX Spectrum) so it’s interesting to see these C64 intros. Can see the genesis of so many Amiga productions.

I wonder why so many of the established names on C64 didn’t become famous Amiga groups? Like Ikari..

One of the first intros I ever saw, and lucky thing that it was IKARI – the best!

Love this intro, oh the memories of an innocent child!

Late ’80’s were good times, such good times…
