Behind the scenes of a C64 demo

I’ve only watched twenty minutes of this presentation but I’m blown away already. Up to about 15 minutes and a bit I was familiar with what he was talking about but then he got to the part about abusing the stack (neat way of saving cycles), and the jitter counter. That counter is insanely clever. I used to add small loops to wait for the right cycle or raster point in my demos.

I’m looking forward to watching the rest!
