nice, but slow.
this isn't slow at all. (if you don't use anti-aliasing)

but quite nice indeed.

we're getting somewhere...

but hw acc for this is brutal overkill.
added on the 2002-06-25 15:04:28 by _ _
btw. for best performance/quality-ratio try running low budget mode with fullscene anti-aliasing.
added on the 2002-06-25 15:08:12 by raymon raymon
Ah. This one is very cool indeed.

$ has got a lot more interesting after the IMO poor Just Like You. After seeing We Miss You I am in some strange way both disappointed and happy to see that there's a lot more than the screenshot tells you.
rulez added on the 2002-06-25 15:35:20 by jobe jobe
- hw acc is waaay too sticky
+ visuals are veeery nice
+ soundtrack

I liked 'We Miss You' better but this was almost as good

keep on improving and release more stuff like this, please

I'm not sure what MF! means with hw acc being "sticky".

Anyway: This was pretty cool! But I'm not thumbing up because it would have easily fit into 64k instead of the >3mb it is now. A *little* coding prowess wouldn't have hurt.

(still nice though)

I've got an AMD 1.2GB CPU && GF2GTS 256MB 3D card and its too slow in 'high budget' mode even on the lowest resolution
added on the 2002-06-25 16:05:26 by funktion funktion
sorry, I meant 256MB of system memory, of cooz
added on the 2002-06-25 16:07:05 by funktion funktion
$uperb !

i bet we'll see alot more from these boys, hopefully.

i get 68fps on athlon1100mhz, gf3ti200, 256mb sdram
so i have no idea what you're on about.

MF!: If you had read the messagebox that popped up when you selected 'high budget' you wouldn't have had that problem.
added on the 2002-06-25 16:32:40 by sagacity sagacity
the messagebox ony mentions GF/GF2 MX cards and I have a GTS model of GF2...

but whatever...

This is modern art. People that are stupid like me doesnt understand the meaning behind this.

an ok prod - lacks coherance between the first and the second part (and graphics ;) )
added on the 2002-06-25 16:53:43 by gekko gekko
And another one of those hyper abstract, love'em or hate'em $ 'demos'. :)

Although it's imho better than the last one, I'm not in the mood to give a thumb up. ;)

a "consumer graphics card" is not enough to display a few anti-aliased wireframes? come on, i've seen that in Java demos, and really smooth too.

Once again they did nice work on the timing, but it's enormeously bloated for a wireframe+minimal noise/dots/graphs. I really wonder what they do with all that diskspace, it can't be the bunch of graphics they didn't include. ;)

Incidentally, it's an inch from kicking the living crap out of my GF2 GTS Pro =O

you don't think it could be the mp3 soundtrack?

sound reminded me a lot of the band funkstörung. does anyone remember the video "grammy winners" they did with designers republic? .that. one had brillant syncs...

i remember the band "funkstörung" at dialogos. Ha ha. (Kommt doch alle mal in den vorderen Raum, die Band spielt schon seit einer halben Stunden ;). fiver. hmm, "Grammy Winers" from Funkstörung or from this group?

simply good

_ : I'd love to think they needed a bloody 4Mb .mp3 for it, but a sub-1Mb XM might've done the same job :)
added on the 2002-06-27 03:25:37 by Shifter Shifter
I thought this was cool and different, but didn't care for the music one tiny bit. And maybe it's just me, but couldn't this be done more effectively in software rendering?? I've seen a few nice anti-aliased wireframe software engines in other productions.

shifter: i don't say they needed a big fucking mp3, just saying that's what the space went to <g>.

i dunno know why they keep insisting on using extreme overkill on everything... can't be bothered to do a proper job?

flow: oh my god your mind must be heavily distorted.
added on the 2002-06-27 10:02:48 by _ _
I like the $ attitude, daring to produce the antithesis of blockbusters demos. Personnaly i was waiting for something more coherent, but i give my thumbs up for the second part which i really liked.
rulez added on the 2002-06-27 10:14:15 by willbe willbe
seems like we can give up coding effects and sync boring stuff instead ;)

the first one to use that line or a variation of it deserves a straight gutshot

Only if the gutshot is software rendered.
nice job.

thi$ i$ pr€tt¥.

what's the point in complaining about the size, sure it could have been 3 megs smaller with some (lower quality) tracked music, but maybe they didn't have a tracker musician at hand, or perhaps they just wanted to use this specific piece - is that a crime?

well, i don't think it's meant to be as crude as a simply "brainfuck program"; on the contrary i'd say the concept is simply glitch-inspired.

a portrait of "the broken machine", if you ask me...

i must admit its impressive but consists of things i seen before, nothing unexpected. however, its result is what matters, and result == !

(+ ran way smoooooth on tnt2/c600/128ram in low budget mode)

day part is too schoolish
night part is relaxing
overall not very good
rulez added on the 2004-09-12 15:18:08 by ninja ninja
This one definately is different. Haven't really seen something like it until then. And it's also funny, maybe because it's really totally unexpected when you see it the first time...

Looks very cool in "high budget" mode, a really stark visual style and interesting theme.

Runs very well in high-budget mode with GMA3100 too :-)

Still a bit too arbitrary visually, but overall, it works for me.

Really interesting style, though I feel like more could've been done with this concept. Still, deserves a thumb up.
