Commodore 64

It probably wouldn't be the CSDb Intro Creation Competition without at least one version of Eagle Soft's classic intro, so here's a homage from Cosine for the 2019 iteration, courtesy of T.M.R and aNdy whic hwas based on the one by one character scroller version of said legendary release.

The eagle picture was found on the internet in 2018 when the idea of creating a cover of the Eagle Soft intro was first being considered, but the final modifications to add a floppy disk were added when some already existing scrolling message code was merged into the project.

Trivia: the scrolling message uses Extended Background Colour Mode which is usually limited to the first 64 characters of a font, but in this particular case the text writer can select any character from the 512 available in the C64's character ROM.
