Oddysey Datastorm 2014....
Great demo!!! The only thing I found a little bit PC-ish was the first rendered logo (the title) =/.... All the rest -> just the best ;)!

...Now going to bed. Sweet dreams I will have =).

Thank you dudes!

Solid, oldschool production. I am pleased to see the revival of Amiga OCS scene.
Nice fllow and atmosphere, but the gfx is a bit inconsistent (although the Forcer pic, is - as usual - great). I hope you are planning another OCS production(s).

I love it!
Very nice oldschool prod.
Smooth animation, amazing dot scroller. I like also the check pattern 3D scroll with relief effect.

Could've badly used more of proper pixel gfx (those raytraced logos were horrible) and at least some consistency in the colours/design department. Still worth a thumb up as there was a decent amount of content and effects involved.

Isn't the Amiga crowd on here more often than not wistfully thinking about what could have been? Negative FX epitomizes that.

Why? Negative FX was the release everyone was anticipating at the Revenge of Mr. Party 3 in 1993.

Everyone who mattered in the Croatian Amiga scene was there. Alas, it was not meant to be, the trackloader just would not work and this became a stuff of legends (translation from a 24 year old usenet post): "The Reality group was the best - Bonefish and Hitcher code a killer demo and then at the party cannot get the trackloader working - and there you go Reality falls to pieces" and then later in the thread "Talk no more, getting tears in my eyes.. By the way, Bonefish ruled, he would put together incredible stuff"


In the end "Made in Croatia" by Binary won, and deservedly so. This was the peak year of the Croatian Amiga scene, so on the same compo you had Move any Mountain by far the first voxel landscape on Amiga 500, and The Image which, among other things, featured several environment mapped spheres..

That would be the end of this urban legend.. And you know how urban legends are like, yes, yes, he just finished realtime raytracing on C64 and the his dog ate the floppy, sure.... until bonefish awoke from hybernation and finished the thing in 2014, 21 years later. Yes, it was real, yes the demoscene missed out.

This was in the first half of 1993. But imagine how strong the compo would be if this was also one of the prods released there..

The music by Pete (Petar Dundov) is exquisite. Pete later became a a techno DJ and producer well known far outside of Croatia.. Sven Väth, Laurent Garnier, Josh Wink all have him on their playlists

As far as code, there is a lot of codeporn in here. From the initial zoom and copperchunky rotozoom, to super fast rotating landscape and generally very fast dot effects.. and of course the traveling 3d checkerboard is so nice to look at..

Negative FX could have easily been one of the best demos of 1993 and an evergreen on Amiga OCS. At least it's not an urban legend anymore and we get to enjoy it, many decades later...
