I'm not sure how many people here are familiar with the demoscene, but the basic idea is: some programmers want to show off their mad programming skills and/or how good their hardware is, so they write a "demo," a graphics/sound program. PC demos are everywhere and tend to have some pretty extravagant graphics, thanks to the pretty extravagant graphics cards on PCs. There's also a category of demos called "oldskool," where people write a demo on some scary old piece of hardware. The CMU Computer Club wrote the first demo (to the best of our knowledge) for the Apple Lisa. It runs on our Lisa 2/10 (Extensively repaired and converted from a Mac XL by me), with some video magic for the DVI output we used to make the recorded video/display the demo on a projector. There's a video (http://capped.tv/cmu...requiem_de_lisa), as well as a download available on the pouet.net page linked below. If you'd like help running it on an actual Lisa, just ask me, I assure you this really did run on our mostly stock Lisa 2/10.

If I listed all the old Macs and Apple IIs I've accumulated at this point, most of my messages would contain more signature than content. Some people think I'm crazy, but my cats don't mind.

I love product demos. One of my alltime favorites is the BeOS demo. It's amazing how far ahead BeOS was of the competition.

could not run on both emulators...
I'll try on my real lisa, maybe some 6504 code somewhere ;)

Lots of powermacs (x10?)... 544Mb G3 beige, imac (x2)

ok, I could run under IDLE

it's a bit tricky to launch...

Install workshop 3
run workshop.
insert disk image
run -LOWER-Requiem

emulation is far from perfection, but this is the first piece of software of that kind on lisa...

thumbs up ;)
