Hi!

Just wanted to give you all a heads-up, that I will be releasing a new microcontroller demo at this year's Breakpoint (during the Easter weekend). It's based on the propeller and compatible with the propeller demo board. It uses VGA for graphics, and I do believe that I've invented some new techniques that push the boundaries of what the propeller can do.

I'll post the .eeprom file here as soon as the demo party is over, but I won't release the source code until somebody figures out some of the tricks I used, because I think it will be a fun reverse engineering challenge.

That's all for now...

    So do I! I'm so curious... wink.gif And I'll take the challenge - if it's worth the effort.

    Hello Linus,

    hooo woow ! roll.gif very BIG smile on my face smilewinkgrin.gif
    Most of the time I don't use smilies here I do

    lol.gif hop.gif yeah.gif tongue.gif lol.gif

    I'm so curious about it ! It's almost like if I were a child and couldn't wait anymore for the "eastern rabbit"
    to hide the eggs and presents in the garden

    I almost need some tranquilizers to get down on a normal level again

    looking forward to what it will be

    best regards

    Stefan

    Linus, great to hear that.

    I've been patiently waiting for you to reappear with some Propeller magic. I knew you would.

    Nice!!

    A reason to look forward to Easter! Looking forward to seeing the demo. Breakpoint and other demo scene party stuff is something I look forward to every year. Just when you think you've seen it all from a particular bit of hardware, somebody goes and does something. It is just great to see a Propeller there.

    The AVR demo I saw last year was gobsmacking, so much from so little. With the extra resorces of the prop we will probably get bored before it gets the chance to finish!

    Dude that other demo was off the hook.

    I'm so happy that there will be a Propeller based demo at Breakpoint!!

    We all know there is noone better to deliver it than you.



    This will show people what the prop can do, I bet sales will rise after this release + the $7.99 price!!
    Does it have Audio also?

    Just in case folks haven't seen this yet, here is the one he did with an AVR:

    If their time is Germany time, then the Wild Compo begins at 10:00 PST, otherwise it's probably noon, PST.
