Hi there!

I think you all know my annual version of the Stella 

Well, this year I'm surprisingly early and I bet you're 
wondering why it's called "Beta Demo V1.1" instead of 
"Gamma  Demo"? 

The reason is, that when scanning through the [Stella] 
archive material submitted from Jan-Dec 2000, all I 
found to include was Robs Ballblazer demo.

Ok, there was Thomas developing Thrust and a few first-
step-playfield demos, but all in all 2000 was quite 

So, the changes from Beta 1.0 to Beta 1.1 are minimal:

- Added the Ballblazer demo
- Removed 4 others to gain enough ROM for it

Surprisingly I think this version looks'n'feels way 
better than the last. Maybe because "less is more" and 
because each remaining demo is more unique now...

Ok, if you've never seen an alpha/beta demo before:

- Fire it up in Z26
- Push Select when you get bored
- Try a Joystick here & there
- Notice that it's 4K only!

Scan the source for credits/info on individual parts.
