MSX Cats on Revision2021

While the MSX scene has the long-running MSXdev competition going, there's also Revision which is an annual demoparty with compo for all computer systems. This year's edition has one MSX2 entry involving some fluffy cats. It's the CaT ArT SyS demo by ThePetsMode.

What would a demoparty be without competitions? Pretty boring. Boredom's not a burden anyone should bare, especially if you're a lazy cat. Lazy cats typically land on the sofa with the intention to stay and get unbothered for a long time. Meeeouuw, just bugger of. Yes, they are fluffy and perhaps cute, but they are lazy, not? Not having the burden of being bored is probably because you've been checking out Revision. From the sofa of course.

Revision is the world's biggest pure demo-scene event with visitors from more than 30 countries, featuring all kinds of computer systems you can think of. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic Revision is a livestream-only event for this year, just like last year by the way. Rev21 runs rom April 2nd to 5th. Online, that is.

We have seen plenty of MSX submissions for Revision, there's only one entry this year. It's a demo from ThePetsMode called "CaT ArT SyS", featuring... well... cats. Here's the video, if you're that lazy cat.

The winner of the "PC Demo" compo "Arcade" makes many reminiscences to the Arcade games era. I spotted many MSX game titles there! Gradius, Time Pilot,.... who finds more ?

Have a look at this great masterpiece!

Did someone try it on a real MSX? It seems to bug for me and MrHydragon... (And it works in openMSX, so there is also some bug in openMSX....) See https://github.com/openMSX/openMSX/issues/1443

Thanks for picking it up @Manuel for making the issue on github.
Information I've received from one of the developers is that it was tested on a Sony F500 and Sony F700, don't have any of them in my own collection to do some testing.
I'm in contact with one of TPM and they are aware of the bug we both encountered, now we wait for TPM for releasing an update for the demo, so we can also run it on our own beloved machines as it should be!
