Today we received the second entry for the MRC Snowfall Challenge. Using a MSX Resource Center screenshot as a background, WYZ (aka Maso Jose) lets the snow fall on your MSX. This demo was coded in Assembly. Its source code is included, so if you are curious you can have a look at how things were done. We have added the Znow demo to our downloads database.

For more information on the snowfall challenge and the prizes you can win, check this newspost. We invite you to join in as well and send in your entry before January 5th!

Nice! People really start programming and stuff. How cool! And I like this entry. He built in some windeffect, which is pretty realistic.

I like this entry, indeed the falling snow effect looks quite natural. Unfortunately the background does not improve visibility of the snow... but still, I LIKE IT! Wink

Break at boot and change line 10 screen 1 or 2 . This effect can be used with others backgrounds when sprites aren't used.
