I enjoyed this one a lot. Nice to see I wasn't alone, since this came in 5th.

yep. some really cool effects (like the water).

Oh yes, didn't even expect it to be 68k, I thought PPC!

very nice.

Some very cool parts, they almost looked like OpenGL or something. Reminded me of Magia. I voted it as #2 IIRC.

great style, great demo!

Huh... This is awesome... But i think some parts are anims, and not realtime calculated, for eg. the girl with the lights, and the mirrored cube... I just _CAN'T_ believe these can be calculated by a 060 in realtime, with this framerate... Anyway, still amazing, if these are animations, so no hard feelings! (The demo size also says to me some anims are inside, 15MB is really huge on Amiga.)

Would be nice to know if it's emulator friendly so that I'm not wasting time and money for the 15mb download.

Because of some communication problems the version shown in the compo (and available at assembly and scene.org ftp) was not the final version that was supposed to be released. No comments until i've seen that one :)

@crest: worked fine in winuae. nothing more than the usual problems. go download.

Nice thing. Exploder, BTW, I have your prizes. Tell me where are you...
rulez added on the 2003-08-11 11:48:42 by night_ night_
yeah.. it definitely has some anims, the thing in the screenshot ran perfectly on my 030... but since almost everything else ran quite nicely too i'll give this a thumb up.

luvly demo from Exploder.
it's nice to see that he's still making quality stuff for our long dead platform...
the water was just beatiful!

Charlie - az hogy te nem tudod megcsinalni a nagy pascalos tudasoddal, az nem jelenti rogton azt, hogy csak anim lehet.
ha kirippeled az animot akkor elhiszem. addig meg stfu imho :)
amugy streamelt zene is van benne nyilvan az is dob a mereten...
rulez added on the 2003-08-13 14:44:09 by teo teo
hmm...on 040 25fps 15mb 160*80 :-/ it's animation or realtime???
Fucking yeah! Cool effects, and the music gets better after the horrible opening tune.

thumbs up I mean.
rulez added on the 2003-08-14 11:50:38 by kuree kuree
Maybe 2/3 of the size is because of the music. Compare it to other Push prods, where you can render the music to file and notice that there isn't any music precalcing in the beginning of the demo :) Not commenting if there still is some animation or not... anyway cool demo with some fresh and original effects. The working version, which should have been in compo, can be found on my releases page.
rulez added on the 2003-08-16 13:31:39 by jPV jPV
jpv , thats correct..but now final version is out..with RTG support and some bugfixes.
i will upload it tomorrow!

kuree: the music is weird yes , as the name MENTAL , see the demo a couple of times and u will love it. (and the music)

anyway this has been the funniest demo i have been working on since 1988 when i started with the scene..
love the demo, hated that the beta was shown...
anyway final version everyone must check :)

cheers

seems my comment got lost. rules anyway. give me the music in ogg/mp3. now.

Good synch, lots of effects although it's probably heavy precalc all over the place seeing the shortness of those. ;)

Not even PPC? I watched the video again, OMG!!! I have to see it on the real thing oneday..

Wooooooowwwww fabulous prod !!! and AGA !!!!
Respects.
Would have deserved to be in DemoDvd #2...

Excellent one, earned my vote now and then.

Few nagging fly out due to afwul colors in few parts: Why in hell there are those coder-colored-RGB effects here and there? :)
rulez added on the 2004-03-31 13:24:09 by Vulture Vulture
Some of this stuff is seriously brilliant :) Long live bitmap effects :)

Very nice :)

i like it alot!
rulez added on the 2004-04-08 10:31:23 by superfrog superfrog
Beautiful! Didn't like the first soundtrack, but the second one kicks ass! The "sea" effect with the sun and the fire effect in the end of the demo blew me away.
rulez added on the 2004-04-08 11:56:59 by Corial Corial
it's a demo, demonstration of code, without any design, no coherency between the scenes and ugly final gfx
synch is ok, music not, like those old 80's cheap dance, old soundtracker modules
final fire is cool, some code seems powerfull and some scenes looks good one by one, but all of that lack of global colorsheme and global design
acceptable anim-player...
Very nice effects and music but it still feels like it's missing something. Also the ending is a bit too abrupt.

yay for animations

It is sooo beautiful, the dolphins, the music, the feeling. When the second song starts I just get shivers. ROCKORS!
rulez added on the 2005-06-30 21:26:04 by Psychad Psychad
The best AGA demo? it's sure is on my top-5..
rulez added on the 2005-07-03 10:58:40 by evil evil
Wow! This was really surprising for me to see such a great demo under this flag. The music is good, I love those weird coloured tunnels and it contains some extremly nice effects inside. Okay, the resolution of some animations suck but you can`t have it all. Surprise of the year I`d say, and one of the best demos of 2003 aswell!

I really like it, altough half of the demo is pre-rendered. But still its nice. I like the music too, exploder has an exceptional soundsystem.

Strange mix of animation player and RT demo, but enjoyable nonetheless.
rulez added on the 2012-05-09 09:12:40 by tomaes tomaes
The music in the first part is rather sucky but the second one is enjoyable even. Really impressive visuals.

Really nice flow with aweseome effects for that time and hardware.

Hmm.. That one is tasty.. Glowing Tunnels, Trance Music and flying Dolphins... and an overall set of beautiful scenes.. Thumb up!
rulez added on the 2014-07-30 16:32:05 by SaphirJD SaphirJD
Oops, that is 68k-AGA, not PPC. Some of the scenes look too good to be true. I guess atleast the screenshot scene is animation. But kudos for the ocean and the fire.

Crazy sequence of ingenious effects. Music is a bit boring at times, but overall ok. Solid thumbup :)

love these recycled scenes (while there are some new scenes which i also like)
