Flash demo resurrected from the archives!

Back in the year 2000, I realized that the Flash platform was getting viable to create a demo, so I embarked myself in what was, at the time, quite a novelty concept (a Flash Demo, that is).

Nowadays Flash Demos are quite popular, but my little one had the peculiarity of relying 100% on the Flash animation engine, so no scripting at all, no coding, just clever use of the layers, masks and animation tools which allowed me to create several demo-like effects!

Unfortunately, the demo is quite unfinished and loops forever at the rotating object.. too bad indeed!

I'm also posting some other effects I've made that didn't make it into the demo yet.

Activsion Anthology Remix Edition is a commercial Atari 2600 emulator which packages some of the best original Activision games plus my homebrew game Space Treat.

It came out in 2 versions for both PC and Mac.

Slow! - PC Demo

posted Jan 4, 2010, 1:28 PM by Fabrizio Zavagli   [ updated Jan 5, 2010, 1:45 PM ]

A demo created in one month around the end of 1994 by Raoul/PrZ, G-Lock/iBB and myself (Raster Master/iBB) for the "Bit.movie" demo competition.

Probably the last Italian Bad Boys production ever.

And yes - you can download it here and run it through DosBox!

But now you can also watch it online through the magic of YouTube! (There are a few minor palette issues caused by DosBox but besides that it's quite perfect)

Old PC Applications

posted Jan 4, 2010, 1:21 PM by Fabrizio Zavagli   [ updated Jan 4, 2010, 1:28 PM ]

I've worked on a number of PC applications in the past, but most of my interesting productions have to be tracked back a few years. So I'm putting them up mostly for the sake of history :)
The DOS-based programs should be functioning fine under DosBox.

So, here they are in a mostly chronological order:

This little win32 utility allows you to convert NOL<->NLM graphics formats. Very useful if you are a cell maniac and want to customize your Nokia, even more useful if you own a 7110. Can also work as just a browser for your collection of logos.

After quite some time I picked up 3D graphics again, 'porting' the Matrix Engine to OpenGL.

Win9x/NT program to display subtitles on MediaPlayer compatible files (MPG and the likes).

A 3D engine, still in a quite early beta stage. Can load 3DS files with materials (DOS app).

A 32-bit recreation of the classic game of Pong (DOS app).

A program to dump old games' roms, so to help emulators coders (DOS app).
