Commodore 64 Double Dragon: The Waist Gap (Sprite Multiplexing) - new Video from '8-Bit Show And Tell'
We take a look at the 1988 conversion of Double Dragon for the Commodore 64 which is somewhat notorious for poor playability and the infamous "waist gap" the developers issued a veiled apology for in the game manual. We take a look at the "sprite stacking techniques" (aka sprite multiplexing) used in the game - could this be improved on? Is this even what's really wrong with the game?
Axis/Cascade is no more. We are all still shaken by the unexpected death of our friend and group mate Patrick aka Axis/Cascade. We wanted to express our sorrow, so I coded a little intro, which you can find in the C64 demo section of this page. The following text is a rough excerpt taken from the scroller:
Dear Patrick, may this be the condolence from the the group that was co-founded by you long time ago. We want to give you our last salute. I (Zeldin) know how much you were breathing the spirit of the scene. That's why I thought a goodbye demo would have made you happy. You and me exchanged lots of mails about how much we both enjoyed the good ol' days and of course: how much we miss them... It was this tie that emotionally connected us for over 15 years. Thanks for all your help in supporting the group and your indefatigable endeavour in spreading our name. Your tattoos were legendary! Thanks for your work on fb and youtube. Your channels were appreciated by a lot of people. Thanks for being such a good chap. You'll be sorely missed!!!
Mach's gut, Patrick... den Adler im Herzen, sge4ever!
