You have memory problems with the age ? It's quite normal, you arent anymore that young if you have known the Amstrad CPC in the start of your life.
So it's time to revive all these lost memories by going on Memory Full by Toms, Beb and Hicks, where you will be able to read all what is related to the Amstrad CPC demoscene, quite a subject.
Thanks to Hicks for the original idea who started a web site to be used for writing a book about demoscene, helped by Toms for the web programmation and feeding the database and Beb to enrich the visual aspect of the site..
BDCIron is streaming Baba's Palace, Profanation 2, BasketCases, Bitume and Gryzor. Of course the first two games issued from CPCRetroDev 2017 should be the more interesting to see.
Greetings to him and the happy mother for their first born !
In this video Roudoudou explains how the effets of his demo CRTC³ were done (sound in french but there are subtitles in english if you are not a frog).
With the CRTC3 demo by Roudoudou (but also by Futurs, X-men, Karbonik prod, Résistance and Morzienda), I discovered that he was also streaming Amstrad CPC content. I let you look for it by yourself.
Two Amstrad CPC plus demos did appear at the Alchimie 2017, showed in several videos :
- Y'a pas que l'Alchimie dans la vie! S03E03 : Spécial Alchimie 12 (french stream)
- CRTC³ Demo on a real 6128 Plus by Markus Hohmann
- (HQ 50fps) CRTC³ - Amstrad 6128+ cartridge demo - Ranked 1st at Alchimie 2017 by Roudoudou
- Eerie Forest Intro on a real Amstrad CPC 6128 Plus by Markus Hohmann

CRTC3 (CRTC x CRTC x CRTC) by Roudoudou, Futurs, X-men, Karbonik prod, Résistance and Morzienda is a new Amstrad CPC plus demo as a cartridge released at the demo meeting Alchimy 2017.
Eerie Forest ("Shadow of the Beast" one-screen intro) by Logon System is their last demo released this week-end at the Alchimy 2017 demo meeting.

- 3 mixed overscan modes (640-320-160)
- 40+ splitscreens and rasters
- pixel accurate hardware scroll

After two games : Defence and Pentomino, Markus Macherey (Shining) goes for a demo, but with a little twist, in fact you are going to need an Amstrad CPC boosted with vitamins. Indeed, you need 1 Mb of RAM and a PlayCity for the sound (9 channels, but the tune written by Nq! is 6 channels) ! Yes, the new wave of programmers doesnt stop to the Amstrad CPC 464, and it's for the good. Lets play with Amstrad CPC with a lot of RAM, external storage and even connected to Internet.
As it was previously stated, the Logon's run - 3D meets the aging bits demo making-of by Overflow is available on NoRecess.
Krusty (Benediction) showed his Wunderbar 4k intro at the Revision 2017 meeting.
