What a nice Quake 2 map editor viewer type thing with cute music.

Abuse of Yoda makes me wanna thumb down. Sorry guy's. First product or not. Abuse Yoda and die! :P

Regarding the fact that our dear Jan Horn has passed away, i was hoping that we had seen the last "first OpenGL demo's" featuring awesome Quake X level viewers!

Thumbs up guys, it really rocks!

Wow, that was creepy!

It's really impressive how K-Storm managed to do all the bad cliches all over again: Unreal-Colored lightsources, jerky camera movements, uneventful music with the lowpoly enviroment we recall from years back.

If it were their first demo, it would've been okay-ish -but to say it rocks is like calling a Yugo a sportscar.

However, as this demo S.U.C.K.S i must thumb it up for using OPENGL and not supporting MICRO$0FT !!

The coder is the same Skarab who stated that, "3D acceleration kills the demoscene." And, "DOS demos are more expressiv(e)." And then proclaimed, "The 3d acceleration is only for games." And then mused, "Using hardware for demos isn't a good thing." And then declared, "3D accelerated demos are only videos." And then concluded, "3D acceleration kills the demoscene, sure."
I believe everything in the world is relative. Demo's too, are an example of that. Everyone has to start somewhere and to say that the demo we made isn't good is a horrible understatement. Why? Is because relative to many people they wouldn't have a clue as to how to make or even know what a demo is.. I understand that in the overall picture of good demo's, this isn't exactly 'state of the art' or new. But it's too bad that the people who are very skilled have to, rather than help people out who are trying to persue demo making, they put them down.. May be says something about the mentallity of the scene now.. May be it's not a question of what style - 3d accelerated, old school, technical.. which makes the scene thrive or fail - may be it's the attitude of the community.
Anyways, cool working with you skarab, as it gave me abit more insight on making a demo with someone else :) Only thing I might advise to you is to be abit more humble.. it's good to take pride in your work.. but don't gloat :)
That's my little comment..

Finishing a product no matter what kind is harder than what the regular guy (who hasnt put any effort into being creative) thinks.....
Anyways, Your particle system renderer is a bit messed up:
You should turn off writing to the Z-Buffer when rendering semitransparent Particle Sprites, otherwise you will get "holes" where the other "rectangular" sprites are drawn.

No. Sorry.

Bac, thanks to try tell me how to do a particle system, but... If the z-buffer was turned off you'll see all the particles (in the whole scene, sorry for my english), with "your" technik you should sort all the faces, with the teck i use, only the particles must be sort (you can see bugs in this demo).
So... wait the next demo :)

just turn off the depthbufferwriting (and testing in some cases) and draw those drawm sprites. jesus christ.
added on the 2002-09-19 01:03:53 by superplek superplek
Okay! thanks. (i haven't read lot of doc)
added on the 2002-09-19 01:08:45 by skarab skarab
Just turn off z-buffer-writing when rendering the particles. The other way to solve the problem with the left out parts would be to sort your particles corresponding to their distance from the camera, but that isnt really needed if you draw the particles after having rendered everything else first.
Sorry, lol, my english isnt perfect either, I'm not a native speaker so it's not really easy for me to explain shit like that.

Okay for the particles (OpenGL will give me lot of orgasms, OpenGL is sex :)

A fiew words for shifter/oreo :
"It's really impressive how K-Storm managed to do all the bad cliches all over again: Unreal-Colored lightsources" <- I don't think that "Unreal lightsources" is a bad cliche... (Unreal is sex), "jerky camera movements" <- I agree with you (jerky is sex), "uneventful music" <- I think the music is good for a "slow or medium" demo like that, "with the lowpoly enviroment" <- true (lowpoly is sex to, like a female pussy), "we recall from years back" <- I don't think this argument is pointless (the quality of one demo doesn't depends of the years old).

"If it were their first demo" <- that's our first OpenGL prods (the other demos have been made only by me, and using sex-software coding), "it would've been okay-ish -but to say it rocks is like calling a Yugo a sportscar" <- Yugo rocks :)
Thanks for your comments shifter, like that we can progress, it's better than to say "it sucks" or "wtf".

In one word : Kstorm is sex !!!

look, even though you're just starting out in OpenGL doesn't mean you're excused for not having a sense of style whatsoever.

I mean, just by LOOKING AT IT you realize that it looks ugly, don't you?

of course this is in a different league than top notch demos. but i find it unfair to thumb it down because there's obviously a lot of work involved. it's ok to thumb down a "three days left - let's hack some shit together for the party" prod (as we did recently, hehe). but a serious effort like this one? no... give them room to improve.
