A good approximation of what watching vectdemo is like on a real 386-20 with VGA. I tried very hard to preserve sharp edges, the full-framerate fades and title screen movement (I slowed it down to 60Hz and reworked timing to match), and scaled video such that the aspect ratio is correct as it was on the original monitor.
This video was uploaded as 720@60 but youtube for some reason thinks that 60p videos are double the length and so it ran at half speed. So, Vimeo gets a shot at it. Sadly, Vimeo chops it down to 30fps, but at least it plays properly.
From the original readme:
First of all, this demo is for AT computers only, that is 80286 and higher ! Then, it's for VGA-screens only. We use very fast tweaked routines to achieve the fast update cycle, and they may not work on your computer. Everything should run okay if your VGA card is FULLY REGISTER compatible.
If you type VECTDEMO at the prompt, then everything should load okay... In the menu system you MUST first INSTALL the demo for your computer, please specify your AT-type, and then choose the SoundBlaster card. If the automatic detection fails, (for example if you have a lot of expansion cards in your computer), then you can copy your customized CT-VOICE.DRV into the directory of the vectordemo. Then install the demo again. If everything went okay, an install file will be saved, so that you can skip this step the next time you want to take a look at this demo.
The rest of the menu's will give you some information about the guys behind this project, how you can contact them, and how you can obtain more demo's from this Dutch group called UltraForce Development !!
