Here is the list of the tools that were used:

--On CPC--

Utopia, Protext, Maxam, Parados,
The Advanced OCP Art Studio,
IFF-Convert, DOS-Copy, KitAY.

--On Amiga--

TVPaint, Personal Paint.

--On MorphOS--

Exomizer, ACE CPC Emulator.

--On Linux--


--On Windows--

Arkos Tracker, PhotoShop. WinAPE, DAZ 3D Studio.

Today (in 2015!) this demo is working only on a real CPC6128 (with CRTC 1) or with ACE CPC Emulator. With all other CPC emulators it will fail at some point (no CPC emulator on PC can run this demo). Please, ask your PeeCee coders to fix their CRTC and Gate Array emulation!
Because of the used CRTC technics, this demo cannot be adapted to run on CRTC 0 and 2 at all. The main part could run with some adaptations on CRTC 3/4, but the ending part is definitly only possible on CRTC 1.

Remember that cross-development does not make your productions better!
If you love your CPC, just enjoy it and create!
