Recoded from the ground up (with some bits'n'bobs of data ripped via winuae) thanks to the original backup disks being trashed many years ago - I'd used cpbackup, which I didn't know stored more than just the 1.44k data files on the disks -_- Was a fun project anyway :)

Yes, Lemon is back! And with a brilliant remake of one of my old favorites. OCS FTW! Transferring it to real HW later today to enjoy it like it should.

A small bug in the plasma effect was all I could notice on plain A1200 reverted to nocache+OCS. It really is worth watching on a CRT screen if you've got one - the overscan stuff looks soooo good.

Saw it via stream and loved it. Its clean its fluent and although the effects are oldschool, its better than many Amiga demos released today because it all fits together. Loved the design and how you worked your way through the different scenes.

RE: A1200 - I've already fixed most of the problems locally, I just didn't want to risk changing the layout of the disk while I didn't have hardware to test on. I'll do the final version once I'm home and rested, as far as I'm aware I now just need to rewrite the second/blended plasma and stick a decrunch fence in one of the loads to fix a load crash on A4000 (dumb mistake I found late on)

A new lemon product

In what sense is this "a new product"? How can an inferior copy of a 20 years old demo wow so many people? How does this comply with the compo rules? This is just baffling to me. Not to mention the creative bankruptcy.

Sorry, but someone has to point out that the emperor is indeed naked. :)

@tomaes I'm genuinely interested why this version is inferior?

When I made the original I was incredibly rushed and didn't get much in, then I quit the scene and it was always a regret that I didn't end on a higher note.

Your comment about creative bankruptcy has some merit, it is afterall a remake.

For balance maybe you could go give the original version a thumb, thanks xx :)

@tomaes
I would agree, if it wasn't for the fact that everything was coded again from scratch, pretty much every effect has been improved on the original, and there are a whole bunch of new effects and music.

So in summary: I don't agree at all.

Amazing, fantastic, incredible <keep adding superlatives here>!

For me the early 90ies Andromeda-Melon-Lemon-Sanity style of design on the Amiga is one of the most pleasant visually, so this really speaks to me on that level.

And the code, wow! Whoever it was that complained that this was the same as the original demo clearly haven't watched both. While the original was a great, great demo indeed, there's just so much more stuff in this one, each of them a technical marvel on it's own.

Just to take on example -the big single-color balls. If I recall correctly, most people did this by having a copper list that fiddled with the bitplane pointers, one ball per bitplane, which meant that you had 5 balls at most. Then someone came up with the idea to use the dual-playfield mode, and there were 6. But here it must be some whole different technique since there are way more than that! (did I count 9?)

I probably have more comments once I've watched it more, preferably on real HW. I think this puts me over the edge on finally ordering that HxC I have been pondering...

So the lesson learnt here is that old OCS/ECS geezers should take their old machine out of the shrine and start producin' again ;-). This fantastic demo has to inspire old Amiga sceners again no?

@tomaes: Bah... flamebait. But I'll bite. :)

The following effects were not in the original:
Glenz vectors
Light sourced bars
"No AGA" bars
Circles
Dots
Spacecut vectors
RGB Balls

7 effects - That is pretty much enough for a demo in its own right... This version runs for about twice as long as the original before the endscroller.

There is new music and new graphics. ALL the other effects are re-coded and IMHO greatly improved. The new transitions added are great.

This is a nice release and shit, but imho should also open the discussion - are we dead now from the creative point of view and have to eat our own tail?

Who's next to visit their cellar and dug up their classics and apply some polishes to the code? 2014 - Nexus 7.1? Closerrr in 2015? What then? There will be 20th anniversary of every asskicking demo in the universe sooner than we think. Is demoscene becoming another mainstream cinema? Plethora of remixes, sequels, prequels and spin-offs doesn't push this cart any inch forward.

That was fun seeing this on the bigscreen, but then I went home and realized it was also something retarded in clapping your hands to the oldschool classic demo with some tweaks applied. Correct me, if I'm wrong and this release deserve something more than a piggy.

teo: you can barely compare showing a pre-release demo on the big screen at the party abandoned even by its organizers (yes, rush hours'99 was SUCH a failure, they fled out of it leaving people on its own) with a proper release on the next party. mind that 'original' version wasn't even spread after rh99 and was shown publicly ages after the that as a kind of curiosity for the ppl. the bottom line is - wrong example.

> are we dead now from the creative point of view and have to eat our own tail?
@AzzaroMWI: A good/valid point to make, which I discussed at length with people at the party. It was for this reason I didn't think it would win, but people thought I'd tweaked the existing effects enough and added a whole lot more, so it wasn't seen as a quicky tart up (which it was quite far from in terms of the development). To be clear, if it hadn't changed as much as it had it would not have been allowed to enter the compo at all, something I thought might happen after having to cut a couple of effects in the last week due to time/disk space constraints.

One thing is for sure, we won't get away with doing it again, not that I have any desire to anyway - this was simply a 'getting used to the amiga again' project, targeting a known base then working up from that. Only problem is I've now set the standard and the next release will have to better it with something that both looks and feels completely different or I'll be accused of being a one trick pony - bad for my free time allowance, but good news for the viewers.

At least you didn't thumb me down for it, so thanks for that :)

Paradroid, atleast you didn't hide the fact, that it was a 'remake' - other groups just reuse their effects with the order shuffled and names the demo different.

This redux is awesome as it's both old & recognizable and fresh & exciting at the same time.

@AzzaroMWI
Look at the C64 scene - a 31 year old computer and there's still fresh releases. Sure, there's not much new stuff do discover on that platform but it still manages to impress and amaze you even if the effects are basically the same. The Amiga OCS scene could really use a revival and I don't see why people shouldn't reacquaint themselves with the platform using someting that is within their comfort zone.

Remixes and remakes were prominent even in the years of the releases you name. For example, "Deep - The psilocybin mix" from 1995 is a very popular Amiga demo and it uses more recycled stuff than this prod does. Roots 2.0 by Sanity is another example.

Is it "creative death" to release a funky, good-looking OCS redux demo in 2013 when the last 10 years of the Amiga scene has more or less consisted of the same old C2P 3D 060 stuff (which I mostly enjoy, don't get me wrong) with only new textures and camera angles? Aw, come on...

While I get Azzaro's point, you also have to take into account that these kinds of releases could maybe push some coders to start working on OCS/ECS releases again. Now I'm also hoping that someone starts to work on those tiny little intros we used to get by groups like Movement, DCS etc. again.

Yeah what the hell, OCS/ECS Amigas have been ridiculously neglected (compared to C64 or Spectrum for example...) the last years, so it's nice to see even "just a remake". Especially one of that kind of quality.

Nice to see some good demos on the classic Rock Lobster again.
Clearly some parts are similar to the original Rink-a-Dink, but in my opinion they have been improved/polished up enough. Combined with a number of impressive all-new effects, I think it was a worthy winner.

I hope that demos like this (and the Spaceballs one of course) will inspire people to code for classic OCS/ECS Amigas again. May the Amiga 500 achieve the same level of scene evergreen as the C64 has.

Im torn into piggy or up, and its all because i seen the original demo one day before this actually got released, after many years. so all effects, while polished and some new, really didnt have any impact on me. most due to watching the original a day before.. ;) but these tag-like logos u see in the screenshots, no, just.. wrong.. completely out of style with the rest of the demo imho.

Well, nevertheless a thumb up for u, ocs still rocks, but its kinda hard to jump on the omg lemon is back hypetrain and all the starstruck ppl, im quite sure a totally 100% new demo on ocs would change my mind on that.

This demo is a worthy winner of the Revision 2013 oldskool demo compo. I don't remember seeing the original but may well have to chase that up if I get hold of a spare A500 via the museum at some point.

Interestingly enough, the party-version of this demo runs pretty well on my unexpanded A1200 that runs KS 3.0. Apart from a smallish black block during the 3 plasma screens at the beginning of the demo, it runs well and doesn't crash, at least on mine. Am loading it through a HxC rev C device too.

It runs best when the cache is turned off via the usual boot-up process (holding down both mouse buttons).

Well someone decided that the "Amiga Compo" only applies for AGA (and probably later PPC) Amigas and the original OCS/ECS ones go into the oldschool compo.
I guess the OCS people were fed up of losing against more mpressive looking AGA demos...
added on the 2013-04-09 13:47:15 by wysiwtf wysiwtf
I agree with their decision. OCS/ECS is closer to the other oldschool computers than a 50mhz 128mb AGA Amiga. If AGA demos was restricted to stock A1200 it would be a whole nother story.
added on the 2013-04-10 06:35:59 by nbm nbm
Personally I think that this demo should have competed with other Amiga demos, it could have won there. It seems unfair to other oldschool platforms to have A500 with them. You must have an exceptional demo to beat so so production on A500.

Nevertheless, nice effort by Paradroid, hopefully next year we'll see something brand new )

Any chance of WHDLoad support? :) Would rly great.

Yes, one day in the (not so) distant future I'll create the patch for the final version. :) At the moment I'm patching lots of other classic demos though so it may take a while. Patience is a virtue. :D

StingRays WHDLoad patch works perfectly thanks SR you Rock!

I had to turn off "snoop" in the Tooltypes list though before it would work.

Keito: Snoop mode is not required for normal operation but yes, I noticed that too when testing. I will have a look why it doesn't work with snoop, might be a WHDLoad bug or one in my patch code. :)

Superb! Makes me want a 500 to max out and use as main machine. This demo doesn't like my Blizz 1240.

Amazing remake

The Zedd samples in the soundtrack caught my attention (violently so) when I heard this played at a party. Excellently done.

Great stuff! Nothing revolutionary, but well done.

Cool!
I wanna post about demo at http://pleten-music.livejournal.com/

Very nice demo, hope I see more like this in near future on Amiga.

Amazing effects and pacing. Quite probably the best A500 demo I've seen. Tasty stuff all around; hope to see more from Lemon. eventually!

nice but a real sequel will be better.
Oh, apparently I forgot a thumb here ... correcting!

Love it ! Just watched it like 10th time on my miggy 500. Great flow, msx, and gfx. I want more !

crazy good, but what's with the weird zedd tribute/ripoff stuff around 4:30?
rulez added on the 2014-10-26 20:16:59 by ferris ferris
Brings it's own baggage, but this one's got a butler in tow it's that good.

I love it! Very nineties and very inspiring. Well done Paradroid!

Blew my mind on the bigscreen, and after watching it multiple times it's still my gold standard for flow, progression and transitions when I watch other (oldschool) demos. This is sooo good!

This has got to be the best OCS demo ever. Only 29 more thumbs up to prove it is!

Refreshing like lemonade's supposed to be!

Long overdue comment. I just don't know what to write when you do these things :) Here goes. A nice improvement on the original release for your scene comeback.

You did not code this again from the ground up, and I felt it was unnecessary for you to say what was not so, since the scene usually knows their handles and welcomes people back :)

This is the original, re-released with good improvements - I think the color added to the twister makes a big difference visually, and the 9 balls are great! You also added spacecut blenk and glenz, and nice transitions.

This is exactly what I like in a demo. Cool effects, good music, and fluid transitions.
So so good + lemon fresh, take my thumb!

Hoping for more soon? :)
