Atari ST Cracktro [010] The Big Four from Strider

Main 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 have very many of these back in the day.  I am mainly recording these now because they are art, and need to be preserved.  I will also attempt to transcribe the scroll text, which will be posted in a companion blog entry linked above.

Captured since I did a playthru of Strider, but I am definitely not a fan of the picture.  My guess is that those are the characters from Gauntlet?  You have the elf and the warrior.  The other two could be wizard and valkyrie.  In my humble opinion, it is not very impressive for an ST image, looks more like something from an 8-bit system.

Capture info -

This video was captured on March 30, 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 was edited with Shotcut.
