I took this screenshot since the intro was too slow for my 1200mhz athlon with a gf2mx card; it more or less locked my system ;-)
Ran fine here. Nothing much to see, except that lovely spikey torus rotating.

The rest was...garbage? :)

ugly, badly designed and stupid demo in 64k. few really nice objects and good music, but still definitely nothing I wanted to see. sorry

I want you to note that it's not 64k, and it's not "badly designed", more like "thrown together in 20 minutes" (i.e. no design at all).

Get your facts straight. :)

the spike thing are cool, but how the hell did you manage to make it choppy on a taulatin p3 1.53ghz/geforce 3 ti500 combo?

Runs just fine on a p3/933 with a gf2mx. Only one effect chokes the crippled mx memory bus. Task manager reports 128megs of memory usage. I have lots of ram. The music is very good and pleasantly conventional. Most effects are well done, a few could have been left out. The effects are slammed on the monitor almost randomly. There is no text, no greets, no credits. My take is that someone was not realy feeling coca-cola when this was released.

Thumbs may be interesting to some, right now there's another certain finger that I would like to use.

oh yeah. What a screenshot. Ran fine on this athlon 1000/ati rage fury angry pissed-off irate 128 thingy (which sadly isn't mine).. music wasn't bad..

Any comments which can be said about this being 'bad' can be applied to 'please the cookie thing'

Yes, it looks like random jizzblobs. So do _all_ demos with jizzblobs.

It doens't have a tunnel or greets, that must be why folks think it sucks.

It's NOT groundbreaking. It's got some nice parts.

It's nothing special. It's worth downloading if you have a fast machine and enjoy watching jizzblob demos.

Hopefully this will be the LAST EVER jizzblob demo, but somehow I have a feeling we'll see jizzblobs for 80 more years... <sigh>

But overall, I'll watch it again, cuz I did like some of the effects.
It doens't have a tunnel or greets, that must be why folks think it sucks.

Oh, but of course. I prefer London over Birmingham for the exact same reason!

Music was good.
Some effect and scene change timing was good.
However, on my machine (Pentium2 350Mhz,Geforce2mx), it was late.
However, on the whole, I liked this prod.
rulez added on the 2001-12-29 14:51:44 by got got
Would've been something really cool if they actually gave a damn about making it. Please come up with a new progress bar. And please stop switching between the same effects over and over like a Winamp plugin. Even if they don't care, the rest of the scene is bound to copy this sloppy way of demo-making because it won. :/

ugly. bad design. average music.
it didn't run very well on my duron900 with gf2mx though.

If this won, the other entries must've been very bad or the voters sucked. propably a bit of both.

my guess is "both". same reason as with the haujobb-demo. namevoting.

I can't understand why a group with so much talent chooses to release intros like this.
added on the 2001-12-30 04:58:06 by Wade^Hjb Wade^Hjb
Ooh. Shapes. Lots of shapes. Interesting shapes, and not bad shapes, but that's about it.

Some nice colors, and some interesting (and quite cool) effects, especially the transparent noisy deformed donut thingy.

The spiky torus was kind of neat too.

The music was not ear-bleedingly bad, but it could have been better.

More polygons != better production.

You design, or a strategic combination of a few facets of a production to make it work, which this did not have.

Sorry, but this was merely okay. I would watch it again though, because I do happen to like some of the highpoly models.
Oh, yeah, and read the nfo. It wasn't even supposed to be good.

Sad that TP has come to a such low standard on the sceneside. It seems like noone really cares about TP (including me of course). I bet most of the contendants in the 64kb intro compo spend less than 2 days creating their entries.
Just to make that clear: All those fr-voted "sucks" are really meant that way; it's NOT for fun, we think it sucks, but we wanted to release something, and like I said during the pricegiving, it really sucks that such an intro can win TP. Something went seriously wrong here.

somehow the design in here reminded me of introes back in 95-96, just some random objects turning around. it's really not interesting at all, but as it was done fast and just for fun, it's ok.

the voters who voted for this one suck real badly, especially since you also had a lot better intro in the compo.

and i love the fact that we'll be boozing with your winning money when we come to mekka/symposium. :)

you guys rule.

everything is in the production name : garbage. just looks like some quickly packaged effects. i like that weird torus with spikes but the rest is boring and ugly. it's a shame for the whole scene that something that it's author describe as a cracktro wins one of the biggest party... both thumbs down to all the voters... :(

Why did you wasted so good effects in such a crappy way? It looked as joke as the other one... (but good you decided to spare the prize with us, even we don´t even deserve it)
added on the 2001-12-31 15:04:29 by dixan dixan
there are no effects inside.

this is 100% pure fr013 engine with ONE new filter (displacement mapping) and lots of highpoly objects with envmaps - that's it.

the whole work for this one sums to about 8 hours from scratch (not including the tune, though).

good effects, ok music, but awful design
and no design for a demo full of only code is : booooring
no thumb down because effects taked one by one are good but bad used and absolutly no design, it's not a demo it's a benchmark of the coder's routines :-)
I agree with gloom, I really like it! sorry guys, but I do =) well, it could have been a lot better, but considering it was thrown together at the party, I think it was ok. Gotta love the music though =) (Viruz II rocks)

Well, it's kinda' short. But as I said, it's a party production. Just hope that farbrausch soon will take their time to do a really great intro which gets more fame than fr08, because they deserve it.

Also, I think what you did at the price-ceremony showed some real scene-feeling, since most groups wouldn't do something like that. They'd just be happy to win.
rulez added on the 2002-01-03 12:26:30 by fox fox
Well, better than I expected. And ran much smoother than I thought it would. Actually, better than almost any 3d accelerated prods. Maybe 5fps or even more! And the music was great.

i somehow cannot understand farb-rausch. i think they are capable of design and great code, but they lateley tend to not showing it. this way they are doomed to perish. note that i am not following the trend of demo-bashing here, i actually like the better ones of farb-rausch's releases, but the group seems somewhat unconcentrated lateley.
sucks added on the 2002-04-09 19:33:46 by rac rac
we're not unconcentrated, we simply have no quality standard whatsoever - if we like something, we finish it and release it, if we don't like it, we release it anyway to get rid of it. perhaps irritating to viewers, but actually quite a nice way of working :)

Don't talk about things you didn't understand. I'm not aware of ever seen a well made dutch production.
FR proved it more than once that they are one of the best at time.

See your group-rankings where you are in, a few crap prods.

not enough time to design or fill the 64k,
not enough motivation to write credits,
not enough garbage to make this a real mess,
not enough ideas to keep it interesting for the whole time,
not enough compatibility testing to make it run on anything
except nvidia without problems,
not enough optimization to allow you to run it in any senseless
way below athlon xp 1800+,
not enough dynamic memory compression to require less than 1.5gb
of ram

so like garbage.
