HalfBrite Hill – DeluxePaint Demo Animation

Can you see the dancing ghost?

This is one of Kevin Sullivan's entries to the «Badge Killer Demo Contest». It is the first known animation that makes use of the Amiga's «Extra-Halfbrite» mode and makes an excellent test for that capability on Amiga 1000's. If you do not see a dancing ghost, then your Amiga is one of the early machines that does not have this mode.

«Extra-Halfbrite» (EHB) display mode: EHBs are false 64-color (6 bitplane) images with only 32-color palette entries. The additional colors 32 to 63 are «half-bright» darker versions of colors 0 to 31.
