So, here is our winning 64k intro.
We ruled Farbrausch with this one, so go flame us for bad music, bad models, blabla ;)
Screenshot coming soon
it`s a bit jumpy on my machine, but overall i quite like this one. i`m sure my non-scene friends will enjoy this.. :)

Liked the idea. But you gotta improve the fake-speech-synth. :)

The idea was good, but it just looked very ugly. And the music was also bad.

Man, this grooved the party. Volle Mitklatsch-Action. Hyper Hyper!

This intro is so ugly that several parts of my body started bleeding instantly...

Nice idea, but PLEEEEEEZE get yourself a new coder, a new graphician and a new musician...

dalezy: I'm really thinking about a sequel called "Whining In The Rain" ;)
hehe, speech synth rulez! go, go, go :)

it's a good idea. it's funny, and the music and voices are cute. yes, the execution is chintzy, slow and it's not pretty to look at, but i enjoyed it more than watching a boring, technically sound flyby in 64k, and the enjoyment factor is probably why this won..
rulez added on the 2003-01-27 14:44:39 by dyscotopia dyscotopia
"Quality" is shurely not the word that crosses your mind when watching this intro, but they deserve some respect for just doing it.
added on the 2003-01-27 15:03:38 by chaos chaos
Let me explain something (lame excuse ahead):
The intro is all built around the sing engine, which was the main motivation for doing it.
The "rest" was mainly developed a week before the party (including the animation system), so sorry for bad visual design.
next 64k will be better, i promis ;)
Like their 'Kötterdämmerung' it just crashes instantly after start (error in exe file)
added on the 2003-01-27 15:36:35 by Crest Crest
Well hmm... funny (althought I didn't laugh). There was no real effects, so it doesn't rule :X

and C) if you read the txt it's a party version and the crash is a known bug ;)
very ugly, i don't hear any speech synthesis (there ought to be one, right?) and i'm getting a "queue full" error when the robot's hair grow. sorry :/

this is just so bizarre. but I liked it as a novelty. like those headbanging flowers you could buy 10 years ago for way too much money.

ok idea but thats it.
the voice of the robot is ugly, but it's a robot, so i think it's normal :-)
no, really, this 64Ko intro is original and the techno part is funny
great job... can do better ?

Yes sir, this is one ugly demo. But it's a nice concept. However, I personally wouldn't have bothered with the 'techno' section.
very original 64k! the singing robot is brandnew coder-p0rn and so it rockz.. the rest is hacked together and a bit too long, but worked perfectly at the partyplace itself..

If you get that "queue full" bug, i'm currently trying to fix that. All other bugs are fixed now (i hope), so prepare for the final version
Crap, but funny ;D

Final version is uploaded. Should fix all the major.
I can't test the not-starting bug here, so maybe it's gone, maybe not.
All other bugs (especially queue full) should be fixed, have fun!
fucking great!

Fixes a crash at the end that appeared since the "final" version. Sorry
Instant crashing is not fixed, but probably I don't care. Yes, I'm tired...

It's really ugly. Really. But, you know what? It is very original, it made me smile and it's small. I love originality. A rare feature these days.
rulez added on the 2003-01-29 02:59:00 by moT moT
It must have been a killer when showed on the big screen, i imagine sceners claping their hands to the soundtrack's beat =)
If only the 3D producing had been nice, it would have reached the level of classic intros like Paper by Psychic Link... Original (and good) ideas always pay.
rulez added on the 2003-01-29 13:12:58 by willbe willbe

heh... i saw on #coders once that it was kb/fr 'ambition' one day to do a singing voicegen... so, you've fuxx0red FR twice... congrats =D

3D was terrible, the music was cheap, but the idea was brilliant and damn funny =D

he's talking about how he would code a speech synth for over 2 years now. he deserves nothing better than a kick in the ass like this - if he would just start really working on it instead of doing a few experiments and writing a few lines of code and then stopping again, he'd have managed long ago.

I didn't tell Microsoft on you, but it's still a bit wobbly in the stability sector ;)

Saw quite a bit of it now. Damn, it's bloody ugly -but we were warned.

shifter, gargaj:
would you mind contacting me per email about the problems. i would like to do some remote bugfixing, as you're the only ones i know (except crest, who is tired ;) with such problems. i can give you a debug version then which hopefully tells me, what's the exact problem.
Would you be so kind please?
It may not be pretty, but the singing routine is just plain cool!
rulez added on the 2003-01-30 10:17:06 by Sdw Sdw
i wish i could have seen this at the partyplace.
and ryg: kb´s plan to code a speech synth exists for even more than three years by now. the concept of the intro we planned those days was about dancing robots btw.
i think we can trash that idea now ;)

I can't think of a single positive thing to say about this intro; it's all very bad!

If it weren't for the subtitles I'd have no idea what the so-called "speech" synth was "saying".

OK guys!
Thanx to Crest and Gargaj for their help the final version is now ready to download.
- All known bugs should be fixed
- A loading bar is added
- Ability added to stop loading at any time by simply pressing a key
did i forget to mention switching back the screenmode when i quit the loading? :)
added on the 2003-02-02 23:32:33 by Gargaj Gargaj
D'Oh! ok, i'll fix that...
you call that an animation system? jesus :)
anyway, i don't feel good by saying this, but this was an original display of 1996-style skinning featuring bad "effects" (you call that rain?), bad textures and a few giant German trucks full of artifacts. the idea was indeed funny, but i would have enjoyed the somewhat audible speech more if i were presented a black screen in the meanwhile (or a classic 2D tunnel perhaps).
sucks added on the 2003-02-03 13:44:32 by superplek superplek
OK, now when escaping the loading bar, resolution switches back to normal
superplek: although, ofcourse, it's not even skinning. :)

It helped to cheer up so many times. Nice scene irony inside: "We have distorted meshes rotating against blank background,
radial blur, synchronized animation, repeating beats and innovating cyborg karaoke.
What else do you, freaks, need to call it a DEMO?"
Anyways it really gives an impression of rain and lightning. Thus the fervent short
handed metal brother looks twice as happier against obscured town.

BTW That's my mom's favorite intro (it's not that easy).
