Black Screen with music. GTX 650, Win7 x64, 8GB RAM. Driver version 331.82.
Too sucks for 64k... Even for 4k it could be not so great.

I like the black screen. :p

Ati gives me no visuals but sandy bridge GPU worked (and reasonably fast too, around 20fps except the cross fades), p cool design shit here. One of those instances where this could almost be presented as a prerendered video as far as the visual quality goes.

Very nice. Works like a charm on my gtx570.

Works here. GTX 560, win 7.

I like the rendering... but yeah, could have used some movement or something.

nice rendering style.
rulez added on the 2013-12-01 12:33:37 by loaderror loaderror
risky colorchoice but the rendering is so smooth it totally works.
the combination of organic growing structures with this edgy cuby thing is awesome.

looks good. like the generative idea. but i didn't watch seed 0 first. does this count as thumb up for this? :D

video/yt please (=
Nice to look at, but I really wanted some anmation/sync to bring it to life. What's the significance of the number at the end?

Nice color scheme and music but much too boring. Don't think I'll ever watch it again.

Blackscreen note:

Try any of the following:
- Native resolution instead of 720p.
- Windowed mode.
- Turning off Aero.
- Disconnect second screen.

Clean rendering, nice mood, even though not enough content for 64k.

Is the number at the end a suggestion which random seed to try next? ;)
rulez added on the 2013-12-01 21:24:47 by Saga Musix Saga Musix
Nice exploration of the concept, though I feel the music could have evolved more along with the visuals.
rulez added on the 2013-12-01 21:49:58 by freezedream freezedream
Thanks for the demo and email support. ;)
It works in native solution, fullscreen with aero.. having a second screen connected.

Tried it three times now. (seeds 283, 64519760 and 43904115, second was best)
Quite a different experience.
Besides being generative (which is always a plus) I really like the rendering and relaxed mood. Would've been awesome if the music was also dependant on the seed (or was it and I missed it?). Btw. the object of the last scene would look great as a 3d-printed sculpture. I guess i'll watch it a few more times now.
rulez added on the 2013-12-01 22:50:23 by v3nom v3nom
Boring, but work nice with my triple sceen setup, win7 64, GTX 660 driver 331.65, no aero.

Zero-effect sleeping pill. Not my cup of tea at all! :) But a little bit of design, music and size category makes me hesitate to thumb it down.
added on the 2013-12-01 23:36:23 by Photon Photon
Nice! Replay-vibes throughout, which was a surprise. Clean and well-edited. The maze-cube inside the vines was an awesome touch. On the technical side, the DOF isn't exactly pretty, but that's a detail really.
rulez added on the 2013-12-02 09:08:15 by gloom gloom
not my cup of tea but dzign seems the way of this intro so ruleezz
rulez added on the 2013-12-02 10:38:58 by yogibeer yogibeer
quite clean, but the multisampling does not really multisample and well the DOF has been mentioned before, looks a bit 2000ish.
rulez added on the 2013-12-02 12:44:46 by las las
Nice, but the static scenes makes it uninteresting and music was a bit too simple. Really need some simple slow growning animation of those ribbons.
added on the 2013-12-02 14:48:47 by maytz maytz
I thought the black screen was a well known issue... With multiple monitors and Aero you will loose the dx9 device shortly after the screenmode change. Easy way (4k possible, unless you're really desperate) is to just reset the device some time after initializing it (ie no need to listen for devicelost) - like after the music generation.

And what maytz said.

Static scenes, but somewhat interesting geometry.

The fact that it has a random seed == thumbs up.
The last scene alone == thumbs up.
Should have been a demo with no restrictions on soundtrack == piggy. ;)

Doesn't run smoothly on my GTX770M, but that seems to result from the cross fade transitions.

I would love to see more of this stuff, and even more randomization, but you won't hear any complaints from me about this. Well done.

Because videos are the fucking devil and kill the demoscene.

This felt strange. It's like 2002 direction meets 2008 shading and colors.

I can't believe the video is censored. I have only a macbook due to a temporary move to the US.

@CrossProduct & Sir: how about you read the .nfo? Would you also thumb it down if it was a game?
added on the 2013-12-30 15:07:42 by Zavie Zavie
then maybe he should not have added a screenshot as well
added on the 2013-12-30 15:28:40 by SiR SiR
@Zavie: I have read the info file before my second comment. The fact is that it is not a game, it's an intro. I (almost) never run and rate demoscene games.

I respect that Gargaj does not want us to watch it as a video but to make it "explicitly forbidden" goes a bit too far for me, personally. This "rule" is part of this intro and I am free to give a thumb down for that. You do not have to agree obviously.

I'm fine with that, just don't throw big words like "censorship" around. Videos are a privilege, not a right.
added on the 2013-12-30 20:40:07 by Gargaj Gargaj
Oh I see, and of course you are the one to decide who is privileged and who is not, right?

Turds! There are not enough turds in demos. But how did the cube-maze get inside the turds?
added on the 2014-02-24 22:18:12 by Dubmood Dubmood
The slow cross-fading against a high-contrast background is sexy, but better colors (more "caramel", less "feces") and music (some pads and micro beats) would make this even better.
added on the 2015-03-01 20:19:07 by tomaes tomaes
Hm. Tried 3 seeds, but the difference wasn't big enough for me to become curious and try more. Which is too bad, as the idea itself (or better: what my imagination made out of it) sounds cool.

Would be very interesting to hear about what the seed is used for and how, and what extreme cases are possible. Oh, and if it would somehow be possible to let the seed influence the music as well, although I guess that's very hard without making to sound strange. :)

For the nfo. What's next, "watching it on amd hardware is explicitly forbidden" ?

thumbs down for "no video allowed".

To that end, thumbing up this intro is explicitly forbidden.

Just curious, what's the deal with the video ?

I usually prefer watching videos at work to avoid running external stuff on my work machine.
