Features a base transfer rate of 2688 baud or 336 characters per second, but also features in-place decompression so the actual transfer rate is often much higher in practice. It started as an experiment to use floppy disk style GCR encoding on normal casette tape, although several earlier attempts were unreliable on a real tape. The easiest way to showcase the loading speed seemed to be loading lots of images, each "delta" image is actually sending the entire screen, but the compression engine can see the previous image and avoid re-encoding the same sections again. The artwork was created primarily by two people - JulijanaM, who created "Lightkeeper" (the first sequence with the girl) and the rose, and Rexbeng who created "Bin Renderin", the terminator style image. This is JulijanaM's first oldskool work, and I'm sure you'll agree the results are fantastic! You can see the original image she created and with the rest of her artwork here: http://www.deviantart.com/art/Light-Keeper-351661825 Rexbeng is a long time CPC scener, and his sequence makes fantastic use of mode 0 - the 16 colour mode on the Amstrad CPC. The music (use all of the tunes!) was created by McKlain, and awesome CPC musician who gets some amazing noises out of the AY-8192! You can hear more of his work and the original non-chiptune version of Little Sailor here: https://soundcloud.com/McKlain More CRTC demo releases are available here: http://crtc.tv/ I'll release the source code and technical details of this demo shortly...
