With Johnny-B, we already started preparing another « Hawk » demo. Our friend Glg introduce us to Stinger, a friend of him which was on C64 scene before (« Transcom » group). He wanted to create a cracking band on Amiga and require some people to create the intros. As we were opened to new experiences we accepted working on intros for that new group.
The group was called « M.A.D ». It is acronym for « Mutual assured destruction », which is a military philosophy. Later the group will become « Paradox » but we’ll see that later.
We met Stinger several times and start working on two intros.
We choosed other nickname for that « extra » adventure. Jake and Elwood, reference to the Blues Brothers movie.
Stinger gave me the internal « MAD » magazine. I still got the paper version at home.
Nice font and scrolling. The logo have a bit weird pespective. The basic technic is the same as « Hawk » first demo.
Nice font (4 colors):
This one was more technical. It displays a real time circular text scrolling.
The font used (each letter is in a vertical orientation, to easy the line drawing):
Sources and data: 1989-11-Intro_MadCirculaire.zip
Source code: INTRO.S
I found one module that was not used. It is Futur composer module from « Dr Gang » (also SML) : DR GANG.MAD.fc
Both intros were never used as M.A.D died in late 89. A new group was created then. It was called « Paradox ».
