Any chance of a faster server being ready yet? Getting >2k/s on a 10mb line is not nice, and it's actually stopped for the last half hour!

it should be on www.scene.org soon .. later, maybe today will be on faster server too ..

Wow, 15 seconds to download! Thanks!

Well, there are a few bugs left i think. Had to disable second monitor to get it to run at decent speed (I think parts are rendered outside the screen area, but appear on second screen). Also, where the picture of the girls face fades out with a radial blur, it hung, but the music started again. Is that the end and the tune repeats, or was that the start of part 2???

Apart from that, not amazing, but nice design, good overall feel, and good artwork. Easily a thumb up.

OMG i've got an orgasm! at last a recent demo featuring *amazingly beautiful* 2D artwork ! wrapped with smooth and polished effects in an ocean of perfect matching kolors... Mantraz is da king !

+ a bugfree/glitchfree (at least on my box ;) code and a captivating elaborate original music !!

mmm the whole production is a Masterpiece !

now where is the triple thumbs up choice in Pouet ? and why did dlobby get only the 2nd place at Symphony 03 ??

okay, thx for your opinions, i would like to say only that the full name of this demo is Downtown Lobby :) Nytrik lick my dick ;)

Nice music, but the rest does not go with. Design is a visualize style not well exploited, it could have been interesting.
A _huge_ part of the synchro is missing.

couple words about the music - it was originally ment for a haujobb intro that never got finished and may sound bit thin and chippyish because of that. however i'm happy that at in the end music was used, even if it was a demo not an intro. :)

the demo itself looks very good, but as sanx pointed out there should be more synchronization.. especially in the end everything feels so static - perhaps you guys ran out of time?

It's too haujobish and boring for me. Some scenes were nice though..

ok code, ok visuals, ok soundtrack
but all in all a boring demo

thx again, we will remember all your comments and will do better next time :) this is our first demo in such personal configuration...so we hope to create something special next time :) cheers

The music is awesome and deserves the thumb up by itself. On the other hand, the visuals are rather uninteresting and the influence of mr. Harju on the gfx is a bit too evident.
rulez added on the 2003-07-08 21:40:53 by dixan dixan
I don't know if you knew, but I was also working on an Unique intro with this music some time ago :)

Anyway, nice graphics and music, but nothing really interesting...
added on the 2003-07-08 21:58:11 by dairos dairos
the music deserved a better demo. the demo/graphics are too "clean" and it's all too slow and boring.

here is poetry, and here is perfection
one of the best demoz i have ever seen
music and design are really good

some nice transitions here and there,
but the absence of any synchronisation makes this thing very boring.
code-wise there's practically noticing thats worth to mention.
this way the visuals can't create the atmosphere which the music is willing to offer.
in my opinion a bad demo.

it's a bit boring... but good looking (even if it can be better... easily)
i though it could be a very bad demo after the feeling i after seeing the 1st of the symphony... this one deserve to be 1st...

A good demo. Nice design in parts and excellent music, but I agree with some of the above comments that there should have been more synchronization.
rulez added on the 2003-07-19 19:52:52 by Wade Wade
ok... the graphics were ok i guess but everything was put in a way too messy and ugly way. and the music (which was made for a 64k intro) didn't fit anything at all.

haujobbish but not nice and so boring

dull demo.

and compare that mediocre, blured gfx from Mantraz to outstanding Visualice works is blasphemy.
+ Awesome 2d gfx
+ Music
+ Some nice effects

- Bad demo-design

all kick ass! Design, scenes especially music from Virgill+Melwyn. Two thumbs up, way up

The haujobb influence is obvious but downtown lobby doesn't look like a haujobb demo, instead it has it's own "sunny" look that I do like. It starts out really beautiful and the backgrounds stay that way thru the whole deal. I'm reminded of artcity.

Where it fails is with the abstract objects that are far too simplistic. For haujobb (and farb-rausch) they work because they are interesting but being so utterly simple makes them a pain to look at here. Not only that but it also suffers from a patchy look, textures that are out of place (if there's a good way to wrap text around an object, this isn't it).

Just doesn't work as well as it could. Fundamentally enjoyable but feels like an uncut diamond.

part before last seemed to drag..and it didn't help that it was also the soundtracks weakest point..
still pretty good..got somehow a bit japanese vibe..
rulez added on the 2015-08-18 04:25:21 by 1in10 1in10
I think it tried to be Sunflowerish.. Missing some postprocessing techniques known and popular now and also I agree soundtrack is not exactly what Virgill is known from today, but hell it's 2003 I'm commenting in 2020. Thumb up obviously.
rulez added on the 2020-04-28 11:21:12 by hollowone hollowone
this is really visualice-ish. was the soundtrack originally xm format?
