i hear it has changed a bit from the kindergarden winning intro, but i guess the essence is still the same. the music is at least, and that would always have been my main reason for the thumb :)

but hey loadie what happened with "the final will be released outside compos at tum" ? ;)

Leia: I told Tum Organizers that the intro was already shown at Kindergarden and it was also written clearly on the Bigscreen at TUM. Still they accepted it since there were only 3 entries for the lowend intro compo anyway.

Ok. Now I realize what '<stingray> /me pokes thru more of Loady's code' means (:

the ephidrena 4k intro factory is just getting better and better ... really digged the colours in this one, nice to see for a change something else than just R, G and B in 4k's. :) oh and the music rocked big time, too.

This is how a 4K Intro is supposed to look like!! Nice concept, idea, design, music, colors... I could go on but not this time \o/ Awesome!!

Quality Intro, a lot like Finnmark but with a different tune (this one rocks aswell) and a new heightmap. Hope we will see a rocking 4k compo at BP.
rulez added on the 2005-12-31 14:37:09 by bonkers bonkers
looks alot like them english candy no?... the music is fantastic! I wish this 4k was longer so I could continue listening to the tune =)
rulez added on the 2006-01-01 20:29:09 by Dalton Dalton
@dalton: what do you mean with "english candy", you have to be more specific as we all know england got a large variety of sweets =) .. I guess you mean Allsorts, but I think it looks more like LEGO.

Clearly a ripoff of this but it still deserves a thumb for the music..
rulez added on the 2006-01-03 13:14:56 by Korvkiosken Korvkiosken
ripoff my ass :) the lego intro looks more like "whatever rocks your boat" than it resembles this one..

Kind of surprised this one was shown in a compo, but I'm not complaining.

@bonky you'd need one hell of a detailed heightmap to get these cylinders... but ok then. it is heightmaps inside a heightmap.. dang..

beware of the smooth antialiased fonts that will strike again and harder with the next release and rest assured that I will reuse this effect for about 20 more 4k intros in the years to come.... you're never done before you've put stuff in a tunnel or two...

Wow! One of the best 4ks I have seen in Amiga. Well,. not as fun as Ikanim, but great design, special colors and music for 4k. Are these candies?

Hmm... just seen it on a real 060. Damn thats a slow bastard. This is officially no longer my favourite Amiga 4K.. Noxie claims that crown again :)

Still the best tune, though.

That "Gin Tronic" is a result of a bet between StingRay of Scarab and Loaderror of Ephidrena. Sting told him in the irc that he would be able to minimize his intro into a size of only four kilobytes. As you can see, he`s won their bet. Unfortunatly that was the last production of StingRay until today except his help for Drifters at Breakpoint 06 & 07. Maybe one sweet day he`ll do the next bet with somebody? Gin Tronic was nice to watch at, quality time as I already wrote, especially considering that it`s only 4k big. Supporting such a small party with prods such as Tum is also good, let`s hope they will go on doing compos for the Amiga in the future.
added on the 2007-05-26 23:21:14 by ghandy ghandy
ghandy: Get your facts straight. Gin and Tronic was already less than 4k big when it was shown at Kindergarden 2005, before StingRay laid his hands at it.
added on the 2007-05-26 23:32:23 by kusma kusma
The bet was about the 4k sound bug which triggered in UAE which Stingray fixed :) I still owe him a crate of beer. I don't think Clary wanted to have any of Stingray drinking a crate of beer this easter though :)

Stingray did lots of size optimizing for this one from Kindergarden -> The Ultimate Meeting when we put in more eye candy.
