Does anyone got the boingball demo (the old original)? I don't think that
I've actually seen it even though I've been using an Amiga since -87. I'm
not sure though.
Anyway... I'd like to see it so if someone knows where to download it or
if someone could download it, please tell me.

I have been an Amiga user since I was 8-9yrs old, and now im 16. I still have not seen that Boing Ball demo yet. Maybe do a search on google to see if its for download somewhere. :-?
If I remember correctly, the boing demo was
an AmigaBasic program... it used to take
many minutes to execute and to show the boinging
checkered ball on the A2000...
I'll have a look in my Workbench/extras 1.2 disks...

It's a version with selectable speed, so maybe it's not the 100% original version. :-?

Basic!!?? Well the original Boing Demo was not something that came on the OS disks. And not programed in MS Basic.:-P

I've got an early version. I'm not sure if it is the orignal but it came on a disk with my A1300 genlock I had for my A1000, back in ??? 1986 ish.
It has the Boing Demo, Robonocity, a 3d amiga polygon demo, and also has the old Boxes, Lines, Dots, and Fields demos that open up in windows on the workbench.
I use to watch the boing demo over and over. You could Genlock movies behind the ball and that was always a lot of fun.
Anyway, it must be old because if I can remeber right when I bought the new "Kickstart 1.2" disk the Robonocity demo would not work quite right, so if I wanted to see that demo I had to turn off and reboot from the Kickstart 1.1 disk. Anybody know if any of this stuff is PD or at least the boing demo?? If so I could put it up some where so you could DL it. The disk is just called "Genlock Demos".
