English[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Clipping of introduction, from Latin intrōductiō (lead-in, introduction) – the abbreviation removes the second part of the compound; the first part ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *h₁énteros (inner, what is inside). The demoscene sense comes from the fact that they were originally prepended to pirated copies of computer games.

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

intro (plural intros)

  1. (informal) An introduction.
  2. (informal) The opening sequence at beginning of a film, television program, etc.
  3. (demoscene) A small demo produced to promote one's demogroup or for a competition.

      Are there any sites that have original copies of games? (ie: Summer/Winter/World Games with Fast Loading). Just looking for games without the trainers/intros.
    • 2005, Tamás Polgár, Freax: the brief history of the demoscene: Volume 1
      Games, demos, intros. They were the same, this was the scene. The trend was that you cracked and made demos and intros.

1At least one use of the archaic "sigmatic future" and "sigmatic aorist" tenses is attested, which are used by Old Latin writers; most notably Plautus and Terence. The sigmatic future is generally ascribed a future or future perfect meaning, while the sigmatic aorist expresses a possible desire ("might want to").
2At least one rare poetic syncopated perfect form is attested.
