                      Code, music: Seven
                      tools used:  Crinkler, custom tools

                                .Requirements.
                                --------------
     * To run perfectly, the compo version of this 1K should run at exactly 60 FPS.
       Otherwise it will run slower or faster than it was designed for. To ensure this,
       you need:
        - A very fast video card with lots of Pixel Shader 4.0 compatible shader pipelines.
          It was designed to run in 1280*720 mode on a RTX 2080 (which was in the compo
          machine). Sorry for the high hardware requirements but a 1K doesn't leave much
	     space for speed-optimisations.... The intro was largely party-coded so has been
          tested only on NVidia cards.
     	  - V-Sync set to Always On in the drivers
     	  - AMD Optimize Power or the equivalent Nvidia feature that limits the FPS to 30
          should be turned off in the drivers.
	- I will make safer versions that run on slower cards after the party.
     * 200 MB ram (for the Crinkler decompression)
     * Tested on Windows 7 and 10, might even run on Windows XP
     * 1 kb diskspace

                                  .Thank You

                              -----------------
This intro was made in a hurry, because sometime real life doesn't go according to plan...
I hope you still like it!
