@ Annatar. The intro may have looked horrible, but people back then were still getting to grips with the Amiga, it was a big step up from the machines before it. People had to learn how to do graphics properly, before Amiga, anti-aliasing was virtually unheard of, skills had to be learnt, same with design.

Design only gets better with the genesis of a few ideas which people build upon. Sure, this intro looks like crap, but back then, it was a seed that helped later productions get better as the bar was constantly raised.

Cherish the heritage!

I somehow remember this but could be wrong of course 🙂 Tune is from Northstar megademo 1 indeed, "n.s speedo" by Uncle Tom (Titan at that time)

Don’t forget guys, this is really early Amiga stuff. Period of the pioneers!

Understood, but I still think those very early intros are very poorly made and sloppy.
You had "Amiga hardware reference guide" in those days, you learned how to program the hardware, there really, really was no reason to be so sloppy and not do the last 10% and design everything to be slick.

Those old intros are horrible.

Yep.. in today’s standards this is complete crap or even worse.. But back them, wooow!, I just wished I could do the same and these early productions set the goals for many new coders like me back then (not to mention even crack a game). There are so many good memories embedded with these early stuff that it is hard to explain actually as most of them are at the personal level.

FIRST! Never seen this before. Again M9 found rare stuff to convert!

What an ugly logo is that? Never liked this tune either. Thumbs down on this one.
