Kickin' oldskool with many nice realized effects and a good chiptune. Especially the end screen with vectorballs, colorful scroller etc. - for sure a worthy winner!

I'd think my massively powerful computer and 3d card got deteriorated to an amiga or something with all those so called "old skool" prods.. when you guys buy a car in your life later on, are you gonna not use it and walk to work as well? =)

Oldskool for sure. And unlike the originals, each part does not have hours of pointless text scrollers. A definite bonus.

Still, it would've been nice to have seen this at 640x480 or higher. Ya know, oldskool style with new school technology.

And I like vector balls too!

no need to thumb this one down (or up for that matter). But i'd appreciate 1) wait for vertical retrace 2) a bit more anti-aliasing here and there and 3) that the end scroller wouldn't be so chunky.
no need?

I like chiptunes and oldskool demo effects as much as the next guy. What I don't like is seeing things which ran 70fps on a 486dx2 run at 15fps.


monkeys ripping quick basic sources from the hornet archive could make a better intro.

Something like "1991 called -they want their fucking effects back." would be in order here, if it didn't run so FUCKING slow. No self-respecting coder would release this back in the old days.

I'm not saying that releasing crap to an unsuspecting public (mostly gamers), who have a marginal recollection of your acquired name ("those nice people who give us free games") is a bad thing -oh wait...I am.

This is the kind of a prod that might clear out the bad air around razor, although I can't sincerely thumb this up, 'cause I have lots of these on Amiga here.. nothing new. Good thing is that this is a 64k intro. It's an enjoyable nostalgia trip, with some minor flaws like badlooking interference and a bit badly working sinescroller. It's a good start for a new wave of better rzr prods, don't let us down now.

Was OK as a joke prod I guess, I almost grabbed a pen when I saw 'Contact for fast friendly swapping, no disks = no answer'

And to those bitching about hardware requirements, pfft. Its <64KB. I'm sure given more time and effort it could have been pure software, but when the end result is this, would it be worth it? Nopes.

med: i assume it's rsi demomaker you're referring to? i don't seem to recall any good looking "demos" made with it :)

byos: what exactly is "fresh-oldschool"?
sucks added on the 2002-12-03 01:03:30 by reed reed
All this thumb downs are imo not understandable. From todays view oldskool means looking back to the good old past and that's what this intro precisely makes. You can expect innovation and stunning effects from a 'normal' 2002 demo/intro, but not from an intro which wants to be oldskool. When watching oldskool stuff then I *want* to be kicked back in time.

Some stuff can probably look more perfect, but the intro is very nice anyway. The requirements are maybe bit high for oldskool stuff, but on the other hand it's Windows and usually we use quite powerful and fast machines when running Windows with it. You could blame Razor more when they made it in DOS coz the typical DOS machine is probably much slower. But so every non DOS owner can easily watch what oldskool means.

crest: hear hear. it seems that you're the only one who feel the same way as me. so what if the requirements are high - what's the point of making an "oldskool feeling" prod for dos or whatever? almost noone will be able to see it then, and the whole point is wasted. this intro is a good way to bring back many of my best scene-memories without having to re-cable and re-configure my old dos-box every time. instant satisfaction; just add razor.
added on the 2002-12-03 19:59:09 by gloom gloom
Nobody said it had to be DOS.
Point is... these oldskool demos were cool because they had the tightest code you could imagine. They did things on the old machines that totally amazed everyone.

Doing the same stuff 10 years later, with 3d accelerators, CPUs that are 1000x as fast, and STILL getting worse framerates than the originals, does not strike me as 'oldskool'.
I think the word 'lame' is better.

To me, oldskool spirit is pushing the machine to the limits.
This just... sucks.
Not because it's Windows... But because you can do this stuff, in Windows, on a 486, in software. Piece of cake.
With these system requirements, they should have done more, a LOT more.
The flag-scroller part doesn't even run in 1 frame on my XP1800+. SHAME ON YOU!
Again, that is NOT oldskool. That is lame.

Scali, On my P4 2.8 this runs smooth, and on my p3 700 it still runs smooth as silk.It sounds to me more like a failure 40, than a programming error causing your 1fps problem
added on the 2002-12-03 20:24:56 by NoahR NoahR
scali: we probably shouldn't discuss general things like this in the comments-field of a production, but my point is; there ARE no limitations when it comes to hardware any more, so these prods are oldskool in SPIRIT, not in technology.. and that suits me just fine. :)

Erm "running in 1 frame" means that every frame that the CRT draws, is a fresh one, aka full-framerate.
Not 1 fps. On Amiga this meant 50 fps. This demo drops well below 50 fps in that part, and the part after the first interference.

Then again, only oldskoolers would know that terminology.
And come on... "On my P4 2.8 this runs smooth"... Erm duh? This shit ran smooth on my A500. There's nothing that should be CPU-intensive about the entire demo, for anything Pentium and up. Even without 3d acceleration. So really, it sucks.

Yes: Exact! :-)

Scali: Pushing the machine to the limits was for a long time a main goal of the demoscene but nowadays it's imo not the most important point when talking about oldskool. At no time all demos and intros were trying to push the machine to its limits but quite much DOS demos are oldskool nowadays because they a have a specific spirit. And for me this spirit is more important than seeing that a demo is reaching the limits (which is quite impossible with todays mega fast PC's).

sucks added on the 2002-12-04 10:44:39 by uns3en_ uns3en_
Crest: Like I said, the spirit was doing things that were seemingly impossible.
My point is... if people could do it on 7 MHz computers 10 years ago, why the hell do you need a 3D accelerator AND 300 MHz or more now, for the exact same shit?
That means that the code is some orders of magnitude worse than code written 10 years ago, so shame on you!

As for pushing the limits, you can still do that these days. Doom 3 is a nice example, don't you think?
And after Doom 3, there will be another game to push the next generation of hardware.
Problem with the scene is just... most coders suck. As this intro clearly shows.
Coders like that can't push any limits no. Because they don't know how to code.
added on the 2002-12-04 11:18:02 by Scali Scali
To elaborate:
http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=2114 is oldskool.
It actually runs on the hardware that the effects are supposed to be running on. Good code. And there's a nice modern touch to it aswell. It's not a downright clone of old demos.
added on the 2002-12-04 11:38:36 by Scali Scali

rulez added on the 2002-12-04 13:39:58 by Optimus Optimus
Scali: Games are mainly made to make money. Every few month you'll need a faster machine with better gfx card just to be able to play the next generation of the game. Games are surely not optimized to run as best as possible on slower hardware. This hype is only nice for the $$$ game industry and the hardware industry. And next time don't compare atleast nice looking oldskool stuff with some lame game.
added on the 2002-12-04 15:49:47 by Crest Crest
Crest: Trust me, games are optimized to hell and back (especially console games). They have to be, if you don't optimize your game, the competition will, and their game will look better, and run faster, and you won't sell anything.
Currently games are much more advanced than demos (while in the old days, it was the other way around).
So, you are not informed very well. Please don't speak.

I won't give a thumbs up or down here. First, I completely second Scali.You try to convey oldskool feeling here, but without everything that was good back in the days, like... skills and such.

On the other hand I somewhat enjoyed this intro. Ran in 1st frame on my Athlon1000/GF4 *cough* an even the music could have been much worse.

As a sidenote my disappointing insight for today: Any number of prevented suicide attemps won't increase the chance of getting a clue about the world.

Coding effects that run faster in their original C64/Amiga version on an Emu on the same machine is laughable at best. Sorry. You don't know about how those effect were coded, you don't know about how they should be coded now and even the word "VSync" is a complety mystery to you.

Damn, some people are more hardcore "yar kode is shit" style than what I was in the older times. That's refreshin to see other people doing that! I should consider joining the flamearena too, but no mood anymore. Still thinking of coding that kickass 486 is enough demo idea of mine, instead of laming. Someday...

Yo, yo, people! Go!!! "Oldschool wannabe with OpenGL and 1GHZ" suxx, even if I thumbed it up cause it was enjoyfull, go go go go!!! Hardcore 4ever! =))))

Perhaps tomorrow I will join too... ;-)

I don't flame quickly. In fact, this is the first production I have ever turned down, and I think it's even the first production I've ever given a negative comment on.

But even I draw the line somewhere. I consider this an insult to oldskool.
As I said before, coding is art, or it was anyway, and it should be. That's how the whole demoscene started. Each coder wanted to outdo the rest.

Look, aside from the code, this demo was not bad. It looked very authentic, and the music was nice. It felt like 1991 again.

But, really, the system requirements are so insane that I cannot tolerate this.
3D acceleration and oldskool don't mix anyway, learn to code trifillers yourself!
And then there's the CPU requirement...
I have no idea how you can get it THIS slow.

ive been invovled in only one musiicdisk.. i still think its better than the blz stuff... then again, i was drunk when i coded it, and iam not sober now, maybe it sucks, the chart's says it rocks tho, but then again a musicdisk is about MUSIC not coding, coding a musicdisc coudlve probably been done in an hour, drunk, sorry, talking about own experiences again..

intro was ok but basically as boring as todays crackintros, the music was the best thing about it.
the only thing I really want to criticize is that _when_ you guys are doing an "oldsk00l" hommage, please put some more effort into it or otherwise call it "retro-looking fun production" ;), "oldschool" is about using all available raster time and creating effects which previously seemed impossible.
I also missed the original retro-flavor (http://lulling.tripod.com/download/jeromeLulling.zip is even more simple but has more style (and replay errors with the unita mod :) methinks)..

to scali: todays coders don't suck in general, expectations just got higher. programming dragonballs, starfields, blue blitter cubes and copper plasmas was actually quiet easy :) if you want to push the h/w to its limits nowadays you actually need to write much more sophisticated code (algorithms) which unfortunately involves a lot of research. there is no clear frontier on the peecee today which leaves a lot of people clueless what to do with all the number-crunching and fillrate power.

to all: don't take the "scene" too serious, it's not worth to wage a war, this one is a fun production like almost every demo or intro being released; wars are for warez groups who are making a living out of other ppls hard work (not every warez group is doing that ofcoz) --habt euch doch ma alle lieb :) cya

so sad to see a flamewars started by losers like you everytime rzr release something new.

The music is so-so. It is nice to see all of those effects again, especially from the vectordemo, second reality and many others. Too bad this needs 10 times the cpu to run.

I couldn't care less if Razor is called after an old and famous demogroup. What's in a name anyway.

Seems like people making "oldschool" demos just make them because they aren't good enough to make new effects or graphics, so they have to stick with effects made by other people 10 years ago. Sure demos like this can be nice to watch sometimes, but hell no they deserve to win a demo compo. Well, Dreamhack sucks, but still...
Atleast try to improve old effects, instead of just ripping them.

The more I watch this demo,the more I like it.

good music, lots of remaked old effects and wellknown effects
they not used the new hardware to try to add more feature to these old effects, but they just copy them as is
last scrolling is not smooth
(superplek and unseen seems to be true lamers when i read their useful comments.)
superplek : yes their circles are not good, so, help them, be smart, paste here the right code to help them to do a better antialiasing :-p
Oldschool doesn´t mean ripping code, making lame gfx and mzk in my opinion.
And did the good old amiga demos really have chiptunes ?
But oldschol seems to be a trendy nowadays
and I guess razor (the demodivision) are trying die hard to be trendy...

It remembers me my first seen demoscene prods, some Amiga ones. It is not a problem if the code is fast or slow, the important is that the oldschool esence is completely capted and recreated here. I love it.

My comment musta been lost in the hard drive crash...
This was, until the SOTA 2004 invitro came out, my favorite example of oldskool effects souped up for modern hardware... Of course, I'm sure that thought was wrong and someone coulda made exactly this on an Amiga OCS, but hey. Nice chip, nice oldskool feel, just... nice.
I think I gave it a rulez before... still deserves one now.
And since I wasn't there back then, I haven't seen a million of these (yet), so there.
