I am going to release tweakable and looping version "soon", so to that people can modify it and use it however they please.

Even after watching it a few times there are always new things that will make you laugh :)
"Everybody is going to die!" Pretty much did it in the actual showing.

very cool as far as dynamism goes - just, the humour level was a bit too stale :) (good enough for a smirk, anyhow)

Made me laugh. They should replace YLE's 20:30 news with this!

Congrats for this one!

All the xml files included are worth reading & probably tweaking :)

Especially funny if you change the RSS feed to a non-english one (:

"4NT: (Sys) This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem."

any pointers on the above?

uncle-x: hhhmmmhh... check if application log says something.

I think you need to install Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable.

Demo should be statically linked (no VC runtime needed) and it doesn't use OpenMP either. It didn't work with compomachine at first. But I fixed it. Hmm.. aARGH..Seems that I didn't change the exe for "fixd" version. :D
added on the 2009-10-26 10:20:10 by virne virne
Damn that OpenMP.
Here is patch (just exe) with all OpenMP stuff removed:

I uploaded patch and full working version to scene.org.

ob: sweet. anything in Windows application event log?
added on the 2009-10-26 16:24:13 by virne virne
virne: I can't find anything suspicious in the event log.

I have run it windowed now and I like it. Good job :)

Weird, but why did the demo need to access the Internet?
added on the 2009-11-08 00:40:26 by AntDude AntDude
try running it several times and you'll see why.

Excellent idea, although it didn't seem to work very well on my configuration. (win7 64 bit + gf gtx570)

i don't think it's funny at all, but terrifying actually, and thus brilliant
