that's a rock solid production awright! kinda oldskoolish in the looks (flat shaded, black background, no 'designer thingies'), but tight code, kick-ass synchro and great music track! one of the ms2k1's best.

I had to watch this without sound @ school, but despite that i think this was really cool! Very my kind of prod :P~
Should have ranked higher!

one of the best product of the mekka symposium, should have been rank better IMHO.
good job for a first demo.

10th?? WTF?? Did anyone actually realize this was in software? Ppl who can't read maybe? :P
Wow, this runs at a very watchable frame rate on my crappy 333mhz/64meg. I liked it, but didn't think it was *that* special until i saw the 'software rendering' text at the end.
A lot of 3D-accel demos with worse effects than this ran slower!
I want more demos like this! I hope the group don't get disheartened by their position in the compo.
That demos like that are the reason i - a newbie demo coder - am learning ASM right now...
And like they said in the readme file - if you're better than them, beat them. I think the scene should have more of that, like it used to...
oh well :)

Great demo with awesome synchronisations!

Great demo. Just to be exact : the music is from Prayer, and not Holo. NyKo should release a corrected version.

Have to vote for it, just so damn good. The sync is crazy, music cool and code incredible. Like it! :)

Not bad design, nice color scheme, but the orange color somehow ruined it.

One of the best software-demos i ever saw on PC.

Flatty trend,. but it was nice when I saw it here on the Icafe. Lot's of particles,.. I like demos with lot's of particles ;)

spacecake: wooow... a flat shade demo that runs smooth on a 333 in software... blah. i consider flat shade demos that _don't_ run smooth on that to be shitty. and when ppl can't get flat smooth in _hardware_, it gets pretty pathetic.

but i guess now the majority of ppl can't code, so stuff like this comes out as really impressive.
added on the 2001-10-19 09:46:26 by _ _
and seriosly... how hard is it to write a decently fast flat filler? even a mediocre coder like me can do that.
added on the 2001-10-19 09:48:31 by _ _
flatshading in hardware is actually slower than texturemapping.
Btw, i can't understand why this demo just reached the 10th place?!? I have watched this one "don't-know-how-much-times" and it's getting better and better each time i see (and hear) it! Great style, great music and perfect synchronisations... all in all : pure energy!
added on the 2001-11-11 22:09:10 by wildrage wildrage
This is a really good software demo, and it's a first attempt too! Damn successful attempt, if you ask me.

One sunny Sunday after the lunch i watched (as always) some demos (I say , i am making a "SCENE HOUR" . That day I watch a demo Leitmotiv from Lunix, when my mom come to my room. She making some housekeeping, and then say "Libor, that loud music is from that computer" ? i say- "Yes, mom" ... Mom staring a few minutes at monitor and listen the music, she say "...hmm, Interesting" (she is 55 old)...I say "yes, it is good" ....mom says "That music is good synched with that weird moving objects on your screen"........i say "yes, very good synching and decent graphics" .....demo came to end, mom return to kitchen.....I say "YEAH, THIS IS A GOOD DEMO, VERY COOL WORK LUNIX" .......and I started semo other demo.........but for this prod. - Two thumbs up.....

Okey software demo with a good particle engine. The musician may use less reverb next time. Somehow the last scene reminds me of the ending of Wonder by Sunflower (same idea).

I know when its software rendering because it lacks Antialiasing then. XD I have 2x antialiasing on all open GL thingies on. ;D

cool style and synchro along with a few interesting ideas that makes it more than your usual engine demo. Maybe a bit oversynched to the gabber basedrum here and there. The cameraman has improved for 45 for electricity which has basically much of the same style as this one. I want more :)

Great production by Lunix!
Some mad synching to a pretty damn neat tune, and pretty solid code (Hey its software too =) ).
I don't know how many times I've watched this, it sort of grows on you...
Anyways, looks like yet another scene party had some really screwed up votings... (Damn it, won't partiers ever get things right? =P )
rulez added on the 2004-08-05 00:54:48 by Nezbie Nezbie
This is one of my all-time favorite demos. The neon colors, the cool electro soundtrack, the perfect sync, and the software rendering put me in demoscene heaven each time I watch it.

made my eyes sore, but it was still a good watch. Some parts were a little hard to follow, like the particles bouncing off the polygons scene, but overall the design was pretty good, and the tune is sweet.

don't really care whether it was software rendered or not, but it was a really impressive debut and helped make oversynced camera movement all the more popular. :)

the particles are ugly (due to the colors) as is the blank background and the music sounds a bit cheap, and i also dislike how each scene is repeated for so long with no evolution having only the camera rotate around what is happening (which in most cases isn't much)... but other than that this is wonderful! the screenshot scene also rules, great colors on that one.

really good, deserves some more love
Awesome to hear a track i produced way back in 2000 in this demo. Love it.
In the demo it says Music by Holo this was done because when i released the track on takeover i had 2 entries and only 1 was allowed. Thats why i asked a mate of me if i could use his alias to release this track.
