I appreciate the concept, but watching a voxelscape for 4 minutes is a bit much. Oh well, it's still more interesting than the intros released at Dialogos, for instance.

a fresh idea. i think it works
well. but the graphics look a bit rough and blocky. some aliasing would have been great.

but other than that good work folks.

conceptual [yeah!] but only one (good) and too long effect [booh!].
anyway, music sounds good for me.
who say haujobb's demos are all the same? :)

all i get is a fullscreen window with white background (i'm using windows xp).

macaw, NOTHING seems to work on your setup :)
added on the 2001-11-11 19:52:33 by sagacity sagacity
macaw: i haven't seen this prod, but some HJB prods seem to be updating with the OnPaint message, and that doesn't happen in XP if you don't do something else.
Try moving your mouse or keep a key pressed. It worked for me on Estrange under XP
added on the 2001-11-11 20:05:05 by Jcl Jcl
Didn't like this one :|. Too simple, and to my taste, ugly. We miss satori!

For stuff to work in macaw's computer, you can only use flatshaded cubes O:)

flåd, thanks it worked.

this intro is quite nice, though they should have made more background effects.
Boy... this one is REALLY ugly! ;)

Woah... what happened here??
This is truly, erhmmm... (no comment)
P.S. I enjoyed your other prods very much, but this one does not at all fit my tastes.
sucks added on the 2001-11-11 21:42:41 by Nezbie Nezbie
it works, but too bad it's on a vortex on intro-long.. but considering it was made at the party place.
added on the 2001-11-11 21:52:07 by _-_-__ _-_-__
otoh crack is not working very well on me.. (vortex?)

i mean it works, but could have been a lot better if not used only on that voxel landscape.

added on the 2001-11-11 21:56:44 by _-_-__ _-_-__
Ugly ugly ugly.
I wonder why someone would ever write something like this and actually release it.
sucks added on the 2001-11-11 22:09:39 by Jare Jare
Way cool! Can't you people see that this is an expression of art? This intro is not trying to impress with smooth graphics, but rather with concept.
rulez added on the 2001-11-11 23:48:24 by kusma kusma
The best I can describe this is as 'experimental'. The (intentional) skips ruin (imho) the otherwise very good music. Also it made me remember my CGA 4 color era. Finally, flad, thanks! Your tip helped me see this demo, and the Lobotomia 2 too. Macaw, we seem to have the same problems with haujobb prods.

All in all, for very delicate tastes :-)

Ugh, my eyes and ears do hurt.

This was a well executed mess, I'd say. Design and stuff was there, it was just wrong for me. It all seemed like a self-advertisement, too. Dunno.
sucks added on the 2001-11-12 05:34:11 by laserbeams laserbeams
for some reason "expressions of art" always look like shit to me. this sound sounds like shit too. no disrespect, it's just not something I can like. oh and btw: xhale even said at the partyplace that he thought it was cool when someone said "is there something wrong with the display?". so hopefully he will find this comment cool too :)
sucks added on the 2001-11-12 06:33:46 by lug00ber lug00ber
do you know why it was cool when that person said that? because the aesthetics of this intro are the aesthetics of disfunctionment: elevating bugs/errors to the level of intention/art.

errors makes us human
added on the 2001-11-12 07:25:40 by _-_-__ _-_-__
look at xhale's webpages and you'll know it wasn't a bug ;-)
very interesting one, reminds me of satori stuff. more background f/x would sure be nice, and the texts 'it hurts, please make it stop' etc., that were (I guess) meant to emphatize the message, actually weaken it instead (for me at least).. the text 'it looks so sweet, I feel just fine' would fit much better.. 8)

Excellent Design!.
but i think its dangerous for epileptix

does it really feel like 4 minutes? it's not even 3 minutes.
rulez added on the 2001-11-12 14:36:09 by droid droid
All I can say is, it looked really cool on the bigscreen.
Maybe I was too drunk, I dunno. =)

Great design, lovely music.

i totally love this.

i love it. watch it all the time. the music is great and the 3 colors-scheme works like hell. one of this years coolest 64k-intros, that's for sure.

maybe the coolest intro i've seen for a while.
rulez added on the 2001-11-12 19:58:20 by rjv rjv
Well messed up, but perhaps a bit _too_ messed up. I can enjoy it, but it's not the greatest intro I've seen -- especially given that's generally only that voxel landscape. Cool to see Droid and Exhale do something untraditional, though :-)
added on the 2001-11-13 02:29:46 by Sesse Sesse
it's funny that the intro speaks out what one thinks: my eyes hurt, my ears hurt.
this one is far too strange and becomes boring like hell after 1 minute.
liked the hjb-prods from some time ago alot better.

I don't mind that this intro was created, but that I was a victim :) (this thumbs down is a COMPLIMENT ;))
sucks added on the 2001-11-13 17:10:40 by bigcheese bigcheese
by the way...
I'm using XP.. and I saw a white window at the beginning too. I quickly got it working by pressing some keys and then attempting the move the mouse around and click the window (it was all a blur but it did the trick ;)).
Also, was the music supposed to crap out entirely sometimes? I can usually tell what's part of a demo.. this time I think it's an XP+demo issue (?).
added on the 2001-11-13 17:13:26 by bigcheese bigcheese
AArgh! my computer's broken! nooo...


Again an excellent haujobb production! Droid & xhale, you saved my day. Respect!

great piece... maybe a bit rough because of the lack of antialiasing but it's good to see some good old software 320x200 stuff...

added on the 2001-11-15 20:16:10 by brioche brioche
brioche: Ermm, it's 320x240 actually :)

Well, the intro looks and feels like a party hack. Spontaneous an rough. It's ok that way.

The intro is not very interesting, but such design (namely noise) is my kind of boatride. It sure beats yet another Visualice 3d show.

Expectancy: View it once, then delete it. See it during a demoshow in the middle of the night while being shitfaced drunk later in life.

Although gotta agree with Bhead - thought it was too much text overlays, which weakened the effect. also a tad too busy at the end.

i know this one for years, and i never see another thing with so tidy and join design and that such impress me. The music/sound seem to be part of graphics, or the reverse. i know the texte is a little silly and nonsense, but, still a sort of model of audiovisual computer art for me.
