X-Troll Demos - Outline 2005 Bootsectors

X-Troll entered the boot sector compo with the following entries:

Keftales - 2nd Place at the Outline 2005 Boot Sector Compo

What can you do with 512 bytes? Not much? Well look at the examples below to see that this is not true. Cyclone wrote this little screen especially for the Outline 2005 boot-sector compo. The worst problem was to put all the code into the cramped space of the Atari ST boot-sector.

SC1224 upper left slice SC1224 upper slice SC1224 upper right slice
SC1224 left slice SC1224 right slice
SC1224 lower left slice SC1224 lower slice SC1224 lower right slice

Therefore it wasn't possible to do a lot of speed optimisations. Even if the boot sector exits to the Desktop I'd recommend a complete reboot since some programs seem to have problems with some leftovers in RAM.

Bootscroller - 3rd Place at the Outline 2005 Boot Sector Compo

Sunnyboy coded this in 1989 as the Antivirus #2 for his copy program, which was surely the fastest one for the ST. As you might see this boot-sector features nice "coders" colours and graphics. Together with gwEms Buzzer it was released at Outline 2005 and placed 3rd. Not bad for a production that is 16 years old :)

Pretty oldskool isn't it?

Bootlogo - 5th Place at the Outline 2005 Boot Sector Compo

This tiny boot-sector was also coded in 1989 to label Cyclones disks. It was just meant as a nice hello and didn't aim at impressing people. Since it wasn't released yet we decided to use it in the Outline 2005 boot-sector compo as a filler.
