Atari ST Cracktro [018] Blade Runners from Turbo Cup

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.

Having done a few Blade Runner intros, I decided to capture some more, so here is the one that came with Turbo Cup!  Of note, the scroller says this is for 1943, but it was definitely attached to Turbo Cup.

Capture Info -

This video was captured on April 8, 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.

Transcription of the Scroll Text:

 Welcome!  Read all text!   Here we go again!  EUROPE'S NUMBER ONE proudly presents:       1943        It was done by:     S.T.C.S.     We hope you will enjoy this game!   Because of the mail-strike in France the new games had a long delay, so I couldn't stand it anymore and drove to Paris to get them myself!  It was a 5 hours drive from me to S.T.C.S. but it was really worth it!!!  There were 15 new titels and about 5 more originals (we cracking them rightnow!). I can promise you some very good games in the next 2-3 weeks, like: TURBO CUP(the best car-racing game ever made on the ST!), S.D.I., DALEY THOMPSON(very good sportsgame!), and many more other cool releases!!!   Greetings to all our friends!   All our cracks are coded and protected for RE-CRACKERS!!!   OK, take care and enjoy this game!   Signed:  *** HARRIE ***    (WRAP)
