The MRC Snowfall Challenge has closed and in the final minutes, a lot of demos have come in. Quibus and Aurora, who teamed up as Quibora, bring us the 23rd entry. It is completely written in C and shows us snow as we see it on televisions.

I can't get it to work!
Don't have a real MSX here, so have to view in an emulator, but I was wondering if it works in an emulator, since if it would then I'm doing something wrong Tongue

Make sure you don't have DOS2 enabled. It works then. At least on any MSX2 with 64k RAM and 128kB VRAM.
We didn't have time to debug the DOS2 problem... Sorry guys.
It works fine in any emulator that emulates a Philips NMS-8250 system, e.g. At least in openMSX, of course Smile

By the way:
the demo is actually made by the group Aurora which consists of Eric Boon (a.k.a. AuroraMSX on IRC), Manuel Bilderbeek (a.k.a. Quibus on IRC) and Martin Krooshof (not on IRC and didn't work on this particular production).
The title of the demo is "sneeuw". Sorry, we didn't have time to make a real title page, but it is mentioned somewhere in the scroll Smile

Well, sometimes when "Quibus" is at "AuroraMSX"'s place or vice versa, we change our IRC nick to Quibora or Auribus, just for fun. But, as far as I am concerned, it would be better to update the text with the proper names.
