Guides on emulating older applications

In the early 1990s, many assembly coders were switching from the home computer lines (Atari ST, Commodore 64, Commodore Amiga) to the PC and Macintosh. As they were used on their old computers, they wanted to program their new machines in C and assembly language to boost the performance to the maximum. Unfortunately, the x86 assembly language of the IBM PC was not as comfortable as the 68k assembly language.

With the release of the Power Macintosh 7200 with the PowerPC 601 chip in 1995, a computer with a workstation-like RISC chip became affordable for many computer enthusiasts. They could get their hands on an amount of processing power, which you only could dream of some years before. Soon after, the first demos appeared for the Power Macintosh and a small demo scene emerged (1998-2003).

There were about 100 demos released. We have collected 3 demos so far. If you still got some of them, please do upload them to this page to conserve them for the future!
