Atari ST Cracktro [001] Blade Runners from Super Hang On

Main Intro Screen
I will not have too many stories to write for 'CrackTros' (Demo screens that appeared as introductions to cracked video games) as I did not see very many of these back in the day.  I am mainly recording these now because the demo screens are art, and need to be preserved.

On this occasion, this was probably the first 'cracked' game I had ever seen.  It definitely is a stand out mainly from the Blade Runner name.  Hopefully I will capture Super Hang On gameplay later.

This video was captured on March 11, 2018.

The demo was played on an Atari 1040 STf, TOS 1.4, 1MB, equipped with a CosmosEX from Jookie.
A Best Electronics ST Monitor to VGA cable was used, connected to an OSSC 1.6 (processing the video in Line4x mode), with the output being captured by a Startech USB3HDCAP.

Video edited with Shotcut.
