hi dudes... worldcharts issue #15 is coming soon and its time to start the voting again... online voting will be opened today ! kick your ass and support us like last time... this time a really small "fastmade" intro... sorry for big filesize but we loved the song by deck/scx... thx pal! l8r...
added on the 2002-10-19 16:29:11 by barock barock
nice intro, but WHAT THE FVCK, _4,5 MB_ !!! just because of that mp3 music. couldnt you guys get a module instead ? 4,5mb is an inacceptable size for a fastintro/promotioninto/whatever.

The music ROCKS! I cant seem to remember where I have heard that bass-sample before... Anyone?

The code runs a bit slow on my system, and the size is a bit big :)

Smaller size and better code would have made this a "rulez"

some people are claming about the "intro" decalaration... so... i dont care about it... but let us call it "one-part-demo" or whatever then hehe...

great music and graphics, but the code seems very slow.

slumgud: i've heard it before too, or atleast something very silimar to it. :)

Slumgud: Could you mean Carlos & Norfair's song from Live Evil - Mandula?? It's sounds a little bit like that bass sample atleast...

For the one talking about remembering the bass from somewhere, the bass immediately reminded me of groove is in the heart by deelite... but there are probably a couple other songs with a similar tune as well. The music's very different from that though, so fine :)

It's pretty nice... Kinda slow, which is sad... and kinda large. It gets the job done.
added on the 2002-10-19 23:14:28 by bigcheese bigcheese
the bass reminds me of herbie hancock - chameleon. i like the music and graphics. the coders should try out some new and more inspiring effects :)

Yay, thanks for the comments on the tune folks. Got no recollection from where the bass is (some samplecd prolly), the tune is *old* and i was to do a new one for this intro.. Never managed it in time, sorry Barock ;) The tune also competed at Asm '02.

Nice design, and cool gfx, but isn't it a bit _slow_ ? and the music rocked!

well, to judge by your last post i wouldve thought you where younger than dubmood.. whatever that has to do with anything ..

So then i ask you: How does it feel being so old(?) and so bad at coding? :)

at least if i'm not a good coder, that's not a good reason to miss respect !
just take care, just a word...
added on the 2002-10-20 16:52:25 by Stv Stv
Nice work guys !
the file size is a bit huge in my opinion but who cares after all ! we all have dsl connection now a days ;)
Details : Music roxx (Deck Powah) ! Design & GFX are beautiful ! Code is good !
This is an "OK" prod in my opinion, but when i saw comment like the one of Stefan i can only set a thumb up to this ! (because he sets a thumb down :))
Stefan: Your comments are so useless ... you don't judge work for this prod, you only judge people ! You are you to judge people ? you're not in the mood in my opinion ! Judge work and only work! give your opinion on that and after that we will talk about people! ok ?

Ok some words about the production.

First the file size.
the zipped file is 4,08 MB. there is 2,65 MB used for deck's cool mp3. 1,30 MB is used for png image data, and i agree it is too much. remenber however that a 1024*768*24bpp image takes 2,25 MB uncompressed. jpeg compression would have been more appropriated for the 2 logos by kenet, the main design and the texture. 1 MB could have been saved on this side, but 3,08 MB would have been stil too much for some users. I am sorry i had to code the demosystem behind this small production from 0 in a hurry, with more time i would have had added jpeg support.

About the code.
many people have been complaining about the speed of the code (mostly gf1, gf2 users, no comment). i recognize that the effect is particulary slow on my tnt2 video card. however, the effect is "shader intensive". the technic used isn't dot3 bump mapping, but fake emboss bump mapping, which can be performed by a larger number of 3d cards than dot3 bump mapping. the rendering uses 2 passes. There is a noticable speed gain when updating drivers to the latest 40.72 detonator drivers. However, i get the effect smooth on my old ati radeon SDR video card, so ATI users might not suffer from speed issues. Some people pointed out the fact that the bump comes and goes. It is "normal", i used a small trick to save a few cpu cycles which is to perform the bump effect only on faces that face the light in 3d space.

To conclude, i'm glad to see that stefan took a good resolution and showed us all his skills here. He will probably rank very high in the "most hated scener chart", but will he beat lator? check out the world charts 15 for answer, and, don't forget to vote!
added on the 2002-10-20 20:17:48 by nystep nystep
the code simply sucks yes, for the twister you only need YRES amount of polygons and "bumpmapping" shouldnt be done like this since it looks like shit :)

the distorted sphere simply looks ugly :)

ps. i doubt stefan will beat lator. ds

YRES*2 to make it perfect btw, but with this precision i guess YRES/10 should do just fine ;)

moolok, thats cos your O/S is windows 3.11

nystep, dont throw stones at me, cos you live in a glass house ;)
regardless, music was nice and funky and so was the pixel and the coded effects which ran fine on superior winblows 98, with a peaforce 4.

- for prod not workin on my puter
+ for cewl music
- for prod not workin on my laptop either

Stefan and all with him were right, there is absolutely nothing in this production which makes you go "wow". One single effect could make a demo impress me but this? No. If it had been software rendered, still would have sucked ;-)

And part of the music is ripped from our demo "dangerous outbreaks". Just that you know.

No comments about size and classification as intro, for myself think, 64k would be possible but would've need a big amount of time.

The intro itself is good but not that wooha that I would thumb it up. At least it gave some attention for the upcoming (and now dead) worldcharts. ;)
