Hehehe, I like the syncing.

Strange. I think I might've actually liked it more if it were a flyby (which is not what I usually think), but it's still good. Something about the dancer figure annoyed me..

The synch ruled. Was a bit "empty", tho

Couldn't watch it, since "read" error while starting.. guess it has something todo with not beeing administrator while running it on XP

some hints and known problems:
this intro needs the d3dx9d_25.dll library
at party we had problems because newer versions of directx do not deliver older dll

this virsion uploaded here is a bad first version not working well on nvidia. the newer version with solved some problems,showed on party was not on the release dvd. i will publish a new zip including the final party version working on some more systems well.
the sync was a major problem in this intro, because the soundcard and the systemtime had a difference of an second after two minutes, so we decided to sync with samplepositon. BUT this works just well on nice soundcards like sb live!. so we implemented a mixture of both timing methods to get an aceptable sync (not working well on my notebook anyway, but an the compomachine ;-) )
the contents was a bit reduced because of lack of time. there was an addition dancer but, i had to solve the other problems first and got no time to built it in.

all in all we are happy you enjoyed it and are motivated, to use our new acquired experience for our next release

here is the final party version with a funny rendering remix for next computer generation:


something i forgot:
volume texture ability of graphiccards required (3d marble ;-) )

and about the thinker by rodin:
he thought for many years about the meaning of life... and at the end of the intro he realised

I liked the music and the mood, works also renaming d3dx9d_24.dll into d3dx9d_25.dll.

Great really. One of the best. Marble texturing, animation system, designed 3d (not just random), music suits the demo, synth ok, some humor (thinking man dancing), shadows. Only one negative: it crashed. If *only* you could have found room for a multipass gloss effect on the marble!

I like the scene and the idea with the visuals but something a lot more lofty should've done with these building blocks I think...
