old effects combined with old gfx and a cool chip using new hardware...

I'll buy some couple of eyes before watching it again... but I'll watch it another time !

I'm not a big demo freak, but i like to watch one sometimes, and I've got to say that I really like this one. Old effects, flashy colors and kikass chip....

Thanks kenet ! :)

brilliant - atari style still looks cool. Hey Leonard, any chance of more real atari prods?

sick and tired of cubes, scrollers & vectorballs.

i really like it. some more work wouln't hurt, all effects should scroll or fade in in some way. it kinda destroys the oldschool feeling when the bobs suddenly appear.

Would have been great, if the effects were nicely presented, instead of all piled on at once.
sucks added on the 2003-07-21 17:26:35 by psonice psonice
it's ok. but the presentation was pretty shitty, as psonice mentioned.

no chance you could have this much shit same time on screen on oldskool hw ;-)

Nice tune, oldskool scrollers, oldskool dragonballs, very oldskool. But my eyes! My poor eyes! Aaugh!

The effects is looked nice and the oldskool design done well. But then the screen full of "effects" and i near of womit the monitor :) Everything puted into one screen. Bad.bad.bad. If you separate the effects like parts the demo looks good but not so... :(

I get a warm fuzzy feeling watching old amiga cracktros/intros as well as some modern-day tributes to those.. but this is really just butt-ugly.

And it doesn't even look right. RGB-cube scrollers are not very oldskool.

This would have been considered ugly even in 1987...
added on the 2004-07-20 01:57:41 by gammawave gammawave
that done on a good ole ATARI ST ... and you'd definetly rock the house :)

Anyway ... damn cool to watch oldskool stuff on modern PCs

Somehow I fail to be impressed. It's just a bunch of old routines crammed together all at once totally failing to deliver the "oldschool" feeling. Too messy and cluttered. They could've done something really nice and creative instead using old routines updated in a nice way.

Being the sad nostalgic I am, I actually like this one. However, the screen gets too cluttered with the second scroller, so only a pig from me.
added on the 2005-01-06 05:45:13 by grip grip
I still love this screen... Thats what brain-blasting demos on the ST looked like. (Ooooh Crikey, to name one of these). But back then the cpu power was nearly 2 Mhz :) Waiting for some new stuff from Oxygene :) And for me there could be another 100 objects on the screen :)

i'd say its ok ( and i'm not oldschool at all to decide whether this prod is or not )

Lot's of things moving :) more moving stuff == better booze effect!!!
rulez added on the 2005-03-31 04:10:49 by winden winden
you should add some effects like a tunnel/wormhole in the background and like ~10 more scrollers

oldschool on pc mostly sucks, except when done by rez or keops. this stuff is ok, but certainly not great.

IMHO you have to have lived the oldskool era to like it ... so did I ... and I really love this one and a whole bunch of other intros ... :)

Love it. As he says at the start of the scroller "back to real roots". If you really want context to why the demo is the way it is, with the ST sprite, the full rainbow rasters, the flat-shaded cube and the classic fonts well there it is. Back to a time when demos were all about getting as much colourful action as possible on-screen. Honestly the context (if you really need it) is all there on the screen, look closer.

If you use an old PII-333 you will be very happy for the really smooth animation. One of the best Intros for an old RetroPC. Sad that there are no others, or others that need much more power and newer gfx-cards. :(
