A nice visual romp through demoscene history. :)

reaaaaally nice.
i mean.

would've liked a bit less FOV and some more homages tho :D
rulez added on the 2004-06-03 22:36:36 by Gargaj Gargaj

Sincerely one of the best party invites I've ever seen! Love those camera movements!

nice, so many effects!!!11

i second gargaj on the fov. But very nice!!
Good job

What's a FOV?
well... i had a very similar idea for an 64k intro i wanted to make, and i'm honestly not impressed by this one and will surely (try to) make my own "version"
whatever, i'll give it a thumb anyway :)
rulez added on the 2004-06-03 22:51:21 by lodda lodda
doesnt run in fullscreen mode here (512mb / gf4ti4200 / xp1700)

shane: FOV = Field Of View
added on the 2004-06-03 22:55:59 by keops keops
Nice concept. I'm relucant to admit that I would have loved a more polished execution of the idea, but there you go. Couldn't help but smile at a couple of cameos of the past.

[14:04:22] <tyger> that url
[14:04:29] <tyger> when pasted into windows calculator (at least win2k)
[14:04:35] <tyger> gives you pi to like the 20th digit

Mmmmm. Pi.

The field of view gave me an IMAX-stomach ache. But how can I not thumb it up?

(How could you put the OpenGL teapot into DirectX? Sacrilege!)

By the way, the first/last and second music parts were really cool
rulez added on the 2004-06-03 23:25:29 by crusader crusader
radman: so far, EVERY URL I've tried gives me pi.
added on the 2004-06-03 23:27:40 by crusader crusader
'cos urls usually start with http which contains 'p' which is the shortcut for pi :)
added on the 2004-06-03 23:30:24 by Gargaj Gargaj
A lot of effort and nice ideas went into this, and the music is rather cool.

Could've used some more work on the graphics though :)

(about the url stuff: it's obviously a cons-pi-racy)
rulez added on the 2004-06-03 23:42:21 by ryg ryg
really nice. some objects put a smile on my face like fr's "schmock" or exceeds stuff.
fov was okay for me, but some textures disappointed me. anyway a good invitation.

History of the Utah Teapot

Utah Teapot

I'm sure there are more. The history of the Utah Teapot was written up in an issue of IEEE Computer Graphics & Applications some years ago (late 80s, I think). I have the issue at home.

sprengler, you suck. stop thumbing down good productions. All prods have different purposes, and all aren't ment to look like fr25. When you see people have put a lot of effort in a prod, there is no need to flame it off. If you have nothing nice to say, i suggest you shut the hell up. Thank you. And by the way, this demo rules :) gonna watch it over and over

Sorry but it didn't work for me.
The museum idea has been used zillions of times before, graphics are mostly simple, the FOV hurts and all classic references are very dull :-/
There's an undeniable effort behind the demo though, respects for that.

Btw, the first ten seconds HAS to be a Spöntz mockery :)

I got "could be infected with an unknown virus" in F-Prot, can someone double-check this EXE and make sure it's clean? McAfee VirusScan v4 says it is.
added on the 2004-06-04 00:54:47 by phoenix phoenix
Never mind if "The museum idea has been used zillions of times before", I simply have pleasure watching that great demo ! And that's the *ONLY* thing I want when watching a demo !
Congratulations for all people working on that project coz it seems to be a huge one ! Thanks !
rulez added on the 2004-06-04 00:57:05 by leonard leonard
phoenix The EXE isn't infected; some virus detection tools report packed EXEs as "infected" because they think that only virus/worm/trojan tools use EXE packers.
added on the 2004-06-04 01:03:50 by legalize legalize
Hi phoenix -- you probably have your virus scanner set to ultra-sensitive mode. :)

I am using a combination of McAfee VirusScan 7.03.6000 and Norton Antivirus Professional Edition 9.05.15 with the latest definitions on both, and the program checks out just f--&!@7NO CARRIER
added on the 2004-06-04 01:16:34 by radman1 radman1
Packers it doesnt know about is a problem for antivirus scanners, since a packer kindof uses the same idea as a traditional executable virus, multiply executables in one.. Old antivirusprograms didnt know about UPX or anything and was a pain in the ass if you wanted to run any intro i remember.

And indeed, this is a virus, look how many who has downloaded and watch this without any purprose, bad textures, bad music and no original ideas... Virus indeed, but atleast maddox coded it!
added on the 2004-06-04 01:39:12 by Hatikvah Hatikvah
it doesn't totally suck.
umm, and maddox, what are you guys on.. he didn't code shit... (unless classiclyzero is that guy?, but hella-doubtfull)

ps. when is an American group going to code the invitro to 'the american party' (jokes)

I really like this. But Polaris, what have you done to it? I mean, this final version sometimes just freezes for a while and then continues again.

i like the ideas, tho i don't like the outcome much. the first scene is the one that looks ok, the rest .. well. i think i've seen too much prods that were trying to implent the feel of old pc-demos, if not amiga-demos, but never really succeeded because it's ridiculous.

Wow! It made me feel so warm with all these references! Simple bloody THANKS Northern Dragons!

BTW: you can update the sys requierements. It ran here perfectly well on a one-chip mainboard SiS-based subnotebook, with Celeron-ULV@650 MHz, with 16 MB of graphic memory, and that on a gfx hardware which is approx like Riva TNT!

rulez added on the 2004-06-04 13:33:11 by Optimus Optimus
Some of the fx/scenes were dull/ugly, but the effort and some of the scenes were nice. And the FOV really hurts a lot!

Hey! Very cool invitation...
Following last year's oldschoolish kickbacks with modern machines... ;-)

Well done, scenish and a really worthy party-invitation!
Wish you all _much_ luck and of course lotsa fun with this year's pilgrimage event!

Maybe I'll be able to attend it once as well if I might get the chance to buy me a flight-ticket to usa... ;-)

Keep up the good demoscene work over there and get it settled and developing finally!!

(Demo)scene simply ruuuules!!
rulez added on the 2004-06-04 19:44:19 by Weasel Weasel
Fair but not gorgeous... No attitude, only comtemplative atmosphere.
The idea is nice though, and is nicely produced. Nice 3D architecture.
rulez added on the 2004-06-04 20:01:54 by willbe willbe
I have to agree on that "too much FOV" comment, it gives the whole demo a sort of a "sphere-map" feeling. Other than that.. thumbs up.
rulez added on the 2004-06-04 20:36:40 by a_lee_n a_lee_n
The FOV almost made be hurl over the keyboard in the first scene.. Scary!
The scenens was excellent and I found the music very atmospheric so it was a really soathing and relaxing experience. Nice going.
Will there be any muslims coming to Pilgrimage? They usually hates it when people talk about the pilgrimage. ;-)

ok, nice, almost all the known effects inside ;)
but it lacks some complexity, I think it would have be nicer with some additional "postproduction" effects. IMHO.
Sorry Arnie, i think it was just the lame-ass Che Guevara and not Maddox :)

Anyway, thumbs up for the oldskool stuff and the effort.

ooooh fuck my eyes are bleeding! The colors, my god the colors! Did you guys have to absolutely use _all_ of them ?

Still very cool concept, okish execution and nice 'feel'... I especially loved the 'fish in a torus' part and the pizzaslice.

a piggie it is.
added on the 2004-06-05 12:08:39 by uncle-x uncle-x
Much work here. But to actually enter directly in all these demos instead of having them displayed on planes would have a better effect (like the cyboman2 of the beginning) (some of them don't work on my machine, because of pixel shaders or ?), also the way the multi-colored tunnel is introduced is quite nice (at least it's refreshing at the moment it is shown). What about a more final version without that disturbing perspective ?
Not a fascinating but a very entertaining demo.

rulez added on the 2004-06-05 17:08:37 by nula nula
This invite is very inviting! The colours are little overboard, though. I would say the opening and closing are the true standouts in this demo. Nice work Dragons.

Overall, it's quite good. A few scenes with too wierd color schemes for my taste, but deserves a thumb.

Well - I have to give it a thumbs up for the creativity/execution - but at the same time, please consider the colors next time -- I know it couldn't be made much different to give a reminiscence of the good old days... Good idea and nice execution.

Didn't like the music though.

Personally I'm all for the FOV because it looks less gameish that way. But... well yes I'm biased.
