Another classic demo makes it way on to 8 bit. Not aswell executed as Second Reality, the frame rate is way to slow, maybe on an smaller screen size it might be faster. The music is awsome. I think that even Kb will be pleased to hear such a nice conversion : )

Way to post your comments at the wrong product there, Mr. Wrongposter!

I just run the demo : it opens a black window and close it whitout putting error message. I watch in the zip another time : no .nfo or diz for watching the required config. And the exe have no icon, but this is not important...
Sorry man, but cant let a pig like that.
Please do a final version or add Video link.

Oh also, this demo doesn't run here. After clicking the start button it just flops me back to the desktop after a brief modeswitch. (WinXP, ATI Radeon 9500, etc)

This sucked ass! 3d flyby's like this where boring back in 1999 and they are boring now. It won cause the rest of the compo was even more horrible.

Incidentally, none of the Smash Designs pc-demos of the past few years have managed to run properly here, always complaining about not being able to lock vertex buffers and whatnot.

At least THAT error message is gone :)

Altough I am thankfull for turrican III ... this sucks :/
sucks added on the 2004-08-30 01:06:41 by cerror cerror
bad demo. the quality of textures and 3d during the beginning looks very mid 90s and software rendering... then the industrial stuff seems to lack textures. why no textures on the metal stuff? i hope TUM will have better releases than _this_ piece of shit.
sucks added on the 2004-08-30 01:14:50 by post malone post malone
I really enjoyed some effects (the volumetric light through the fog and the illumination due to lightnings), and less some others (flares clearly disappearing when they get out of sight and bad poetry/concept).
Ok, it was just a 3d show, but you worked a lot on it (not the actual production, maybe, but the engine and/or some effects). Pigface for me.

some effects were ok but all in all

i had to laugh about the "poetry" tho.

Ran fine here. Very late 90's flyby style... but it was on the good side of fly by. The render quality looked good somehow too, almost raytraced.

Can't understand all the fuss ... runs fine here! (P4, 1.8gh, 512MB, GF3 WITHOUT the latest drivers)

Typical SD-prod: great modelling, nice trancy music, uninteresting font. A bit short though...but still worth a thumb up.

Tested the demo on three configs and it didn't even bother to run on one of them (GF3, GF FX, Radeon 9600 XT). Might be useful to invest a _bit_ more time into compatibility issues next time.

Kinda dissapointed, since it's just a boring flybye without much effects (I only liked the volumetric lights near the end). I expected more from Smash Designs PC (or not? I guess I WOULD like to expect :)

Did this win??? boring flyby with horrible music. Only thing that was cool, was the pipes and the lightning
added on the 2004-09-23 23:18:45 by quisten quisten
ok so now it works, altho i'm not sure if i wanted to see this.
no thumb down because obviously AEG's 3D work saves the demo once again, and DAMN the volumetric lightbeam thingy ruled :)
but... (here we go again)
- the music sounded like what probably MWNN was producing back in '93... by default there's nothing wrong with that but it sounded so... "empty", it needed more "energy"
- THE FONTS!!! MY GOD, THE FONTS!!! i mean people've been complaining about ugly aliased systemfonts since Adrenaline, is it REALLY hard to realize that they might be right? :D seriously... so many free font resources on the web, why stick to Arial? pleeeease? pretty please?
- the texts... "we will x-ray you" must be the weirdest text in a demo ever :D i mean, the "we ... you" cliches are generally overused but this just made it hilariously bad :)
- the feedback/crashzoom/whatever effect applied on the creditz is like... wow. i mean, was that supposed to be serious? :)

to sum it up once _again_ there's insane modelling and texturing work involved but the aesthetics which would've made this great are completely missing... and the thing i feel sorry the most about is that it wouldn't have taken really much time and effort to fix most of these glitches, just get a decent fontset, put the text on an 512x512 texture and run some photoshop filter on it...

i think finally you might want to ask someone to check the design thingies before you release :)
added on the 2004-09-24 09:43:55 by Gargaj Gargaj
i'm with you on those volumetric lightbars gargaj - definitively the coolest thing in the demo. :)

the latest version worked, and it was actually one of the more okayish flybys i've seen lately, but all in all too boring.. and the music wasn't very good.
added on the 2004-10-07 23:02:16 by gloom gloom
Maybe I'm a bit biased because I am an organizer for both parties, but when AEG showed some engine outputs before Evoke it grew on me more and more with every new preview.

For my taste the music fits the demo pretty well so I don't worry about, I somehow really like it.

Texts... Yeah, this destroyed that demo a bit for me, but hey, it is an invitation. ;) A texts off function is requested, maybe they somewhen will have the time for this feature.

About the font I only can say "form follows function" (please make a joke including function party _now_) - I have no problem with it.

Boring flyby... come on guys, do you really want rotating cubes? ;)

I very like a SD 3D demos, AEG is a great modeler, I like the music (yes it is a cheap techno, but fit together with 3D world like this or in Weltenkostrukt). Two thumbs up !

Improve your font !!!! From 1998 to 2004 I se same simple font in SD demos !
