The demo is already pretty impressive, but the demotool.. WOW! That's seriously hardcore :D

Nice theme + music too.

Okay, I don't really know what to make of this. On the one hand it's 3D in javascript (though via canvas, which makes it somewhat easier than it would seem), on the other hand the music is annoying and as a "story demo" it doesn't work that well. I suppose it's meant to be some sort of commentary on social network, but it was slow, not much happened and storytelling could've used some more subtlety :/

what a nice insult to the audience who expected actual social commentary :D
the music was a bit dull though - go make an xm player so it doesnt take up 3MB :P

The end comment got a laugh in the hall.

Technically, a monumental effort even despite the clipping bugs. As for the actual content, I have to agree with Stijn. Still worthy of a thumb up though :)

I like this. And props for using a Venn diagram in a subtle way :)

Gargaj: hush hush about the player.

Hmmm. Have to think about it.
Same here.

Gasman: damn you! you make me want to code a prod. I planned to work on my site today :p

audio initialization error in both chrome and firefox :(

pretty decent for javascript stuff :)

blackpawn: I think the path it tells you to add to the Flash security manager is a bit wrong on Windows, sorry... if you select the path manually via the 'choose folder' thing it should work better. Will fix that for the final...
added on the 2008-09-16 12:58:45 by gasman gasman
or put it online. Or add a note telling people to try on their local server ( if they have one )
added on the 2008-09-16 13:02:01 by p01 p01
have only listened to the musax by now. really great.
thumb for the final in advance.

brilliant. how true. big respect to the master of js gasman who rules big time in everything he puts his big hands on :)

gasman: what about putting the demo online and avoid the Flash security manager thing?

trace: I will, once I sort out this stupid clipping bug that screws things up on Windows (but not a Mac running *exactly the same browser*)...
added on the 2008-09-16 20:01:24 by gasman gasman
for the atmosphere and the final scene!

this was great, got a goot laugh at the party on the last comment. looks like a real sort of advert, reflects the reality really well (i met my wife on IRC) music was good enough imo fitting well with the ralther bleak setting.

Just great.

Funny and cool platform!

OK, final version is upped, and so is the online version.

The clipping bug is fixed (turns out windows doesn't like you drawing 20000x40000 pixel triangles... os x is fine with it) along with some inconsequential stuff.

And just for kicks... the demotool is included. Ohhh yes. Be afraid.

Gasman: fucking ace demo, javascript... mind blown :)

i still get audio initialisation error (on both online and download versions) and after adding the paths

fuckings to macromedia!
added on the 2008-09-20 11:02:51 by bfx bfx
bk237: not sure how much I can help with that, but could you try changing line 55 of framework/soundtrack.js from
Code:soundManager.debugMode = false;
Code:soundManager.debugMode = true;
, and let me know what the debugging output says? (it's black on black in the page background, so you'll need to do a 'select all' or something)
added on the 2008-09-20 17:55:15 by gasman gasman
Fun concept, but the demo itself was pretty dull..,
added on the 2008-09-20 18:13:35 by kusma kusma
gasman - I got it working by doing the manual browse - copypasting didn't seem to take.

the concept is a good one and i'd like to see it taken further.. it seems a shame to use for a single punchline.

anyway - i'll pig it today but I can't wait to see more prods tomorrow!
added on the 2008-09-21 17:37:32 by bfx bfx
I second kusma. Also, it's painfully slow for some reason (the reason being "js", I guess).

Nice demotool, btw. ;)
added on the 2008-09-21 17:45:26 by tomaes tomaes
Hehehe, doesn't work. :)
audio initialisation error
This probably means you need to go to the Flash security settings manager, select Edit locations... -> Add location... and add:
Then reload this page. Thanks!
Painfully slow? You're doing it wrong.

Nice work gasman!
I second gargaj about the xm player.

A big thumb up for:
- releasing this kawai prod
- the fresh and clean visual
- for letting me discover the fabulous zx spectrum orchestra (which i didn't know)
- the choice of platform

Very nice, made me laugh and think at both times.

The download version gives me an
Code: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Not enough arguments" nsresult: "0x80570001 (NS_ERROR_XPC_NOT_ENOUGH_ARGS)" location: "JS frame :: http://localhost/web/antisocial_by_gasman_FINAL/framework/soundtrack.js :: anonymous :: line 17" data: no]

Which is
Code: this.audio.addEventListener('ended', function() {

Which seems you have fixed with the conditional for either mp3 or ogg in the online version, which works perfectly.
