Damn, my screenshot is a bit fucked up :( Anyway, second file is at ftp://ftp.amigascne.org/pub/amiga/groups/k/kefrens/kefrens-megademoviii-b.dms.

A classic demo. Fantastic parts amongst some more average parts.

What, I haven't commented this yet? Extremely great demo, especially the parts by Metallion, Promax and Icronite/Milkshake. And by the way, contrary to popular belief there ARE 8 Kefrens Megademos. The first two were made under their old name "The Starlight Project" though..

I watched it so many times in the early 90's.
Maybe I should watch it once more!

actually i never understood why this demo was always ranked so high
the routines in this demo where quite unoptimized and already better seen in other demos before that one

I loved the tune by Nightlight in the Kill Victor demo on Disk 2... What no disk 2? OK Have posted a url to fix me, beautiful.

tmb: Promax's 3D kicked ass back then, I remember we liked it so much that it even decided Starlion to start working seriously on our 3D routs for months on Atari.

Moreover the demo was just ubercool imo (along with some of its mods) ;)

SAUCE: Interactvity(!), the music to the Roller demo (mod.fletch), ultrawhack scrollers and best use of sprite snakes evah!!

SHITZ: ugly art, but at least better than ****

(music kicks ass and topples dominoes)

Some very nice parts accompanied by some ugly/average parts. And the 3d routines were pretty fast for that time. I wonder how TMB found out that the code is unoptimized... Anyway, thumb goes up. :)

Sorry, but I can't see anything special here, and to me, the demos are quite boring.

Hey where's my vote. Absolutely one of the best ever.

Megademo 7 was really good, Megademo 8 is a total masterpiece ! A lot of good demo inside it (And Kill victor from Promax wow... It was the first time I see overscan fullscreen full framerate flat 3D)

If you need to see only one demo from 1990 you can watch this one because it contains mostly all classics fx from that time !

Promax' code was fantastic. i remember copying his linedraw to fix the line length issue, and I think I kept using it for years. Also, at the party this was released, (and my first party ever) I officially became a member of Kefrens, but after 30 minutes they changed their mind and didn't let me in after all (I think because I wanted to finish my other demo for Static Bytes, I'm not sure). Ah, fun times.

First glenz, Seven Sins-beating convex spaceships, and Harold Faltermeyer music... what more could you want?? Kefrens had made some nice demos before, and if their previous megademos weren't top notch, this megademo now placed them firmly in the top league :)

yep, some good stuff in this one.

Had this demo on a disk back in the time and i was always fascinated from two songs in the demo. The intro-tune and the tune in the "Walkmann" part from "Metallion". Great memories, great demo !!!

"Kill Victor" by the legendary Promax is my favorite part of the
Megademo. The blue cube and the green space ship - awesome! And
indeed, the objects were really big and impressive for that time. It
really motivated and pushed me into writing my first own filled 3D routine.
The music by Nightlight is great, too. The drums and the bass are very
well arranged and are groovin' like hell! Moreover, the simple and
catchy melody conveys a kind of easiness and is leaving enough room
for the main actor - namely the BIG vectors. Lovely!

By the way, what was so special (see comment of Hannibal) about the
line drawing routine?

It worked :D I think nearly everyone was using Promax's liendraw routine at some stage in the early 90's. It might even have been spread/published (wither officially or unofficially)

Some great tunes here, and amazing routines as for 1990!!!

Ain't this the first glenz routine (Transformer part by Promax) written and published on the Amiga, ever?

Who composed the music from "Rotate" part? One of my favorite tune since I heard in in 1991 in .STM format.
