This intro was ungainly inspired by darkroom 40k for Amiga.
It was supposed to be presented at QBParty 2016 but was lost in a HDD crash. 25% of the code was copied from Ryg's circle implementation (was unable to make it smaller while maintaining same precision in texture mapping). Credit to him.

Enjoy !
i love this! very nice

@Cyg_BlaBla : you are correct. There is a HQ (1728x1780) version available here, courtesy of Fra.
probably my favorite 256b intro so far.

amazing ... not the prod, but the comments :D cdak? best 256b? clearly not. i see a verrrrry slow and very ugly tunnel with some variations. i hear ... one single midi note. again. text plotting via printing and screen grabbing (instead of accessing BIOS ROM) is interesting though, and plotting the pixels with a gap looks nice, so no thumb down ;)
added on the 2016-05-21 19:48:37 by HellMood HellMood
Hellmood, please stop being so negative and jealous.
If you don't understand the code, don't talk as if you did, and stop talking like you are some hot coder.
oh, i understand the code. it's easy readable =)

recently, rygs 64 bytes routine was optimized to 52 bytes ... by myself =)

BB Image

you're free to use my optimization, i'll allow it. with the gained twelve bytes you could - for example - implement ESC support ;)

or maybe you want to use the space, to speed up your intro? it's almost unwatchable. also recently, i showed that totally smooth tunnel-like effects are even possible in 800x600 resolution ...

BB Image

... and this one here stutters in mode 0x13 ? Oliver please, you can do better than that ;)

the colors ... well let's not talk about the colors ... there are none anyway :D

See, this simply fails to impress me. Stylistic, technically, you know? Don't be to emotional over the fact that i don't thumb up. If you don't agree on technical details, you could still be like :

Booh Hoo Hoo...HellMood the mediocre coder is now mad and crying.
i expected a serious answer, my fault i guess :D

let me link you two examples of how beautiful vortex or meshes can look like in 256 bytes

BB Image

BB Image

your vartiation of "lets add an offset to the tunnel" also has been done in better ways - imho of course
BB Image

BB Image

so, all three variations of the tunnel fail to impress me, by far. i don't know why modulo or mul textures, reduction to monochrome, and adding noise looks better in someones eye, but in mine, it doesn't.


we could now go on, discussing on how pressing a single MIDI note is "music", what do you say? ;)
added on the 2016-05-21 22:13:32 by HellMood HellMood
Look Hellmood,

I'm going to be franck with you : to me you're just some child and a mediocre try-hard coder with an ego problem that needs love and affection and is full of hate, envy and jealousy.

I could even become your friend one day, *if* you ever manage to change your negativity into constructive deeds.

The more you demonstrate your fascination for me (since 2008 now?), the less you will have the opportunity to spread your wings and be your own hero.
see, i'm beeing constructive here, i show where you can improve, i inspire you, and i try to ignore your insults because, clearly, you are not *really* like that, eh? someday you will stop pressing single MIDI notes, and i'm sure you'll find out why timelord is running so slow, even without my help ;)

The only person here with an ego problem is Mr. Baudsurfer. Pretty average for 256b, boring one-note MIDI "music", but the thumb goes for the attitude:

I think Baudiebaud is just still salty that hellmood won the tiny intro Meteorik award. 😂

Not thumbing it down tho even though the Baudmeister acts like a petulant child as the intro is still p good.

There kozmik/ep/saufbruder goes again...still the same bullshit...i am elite and the best coder of you all...all others are lamers...i am better than you because i am older (i´ll never get that pseudo-argument!) and longer in the scene than you.

There are many coders around here that could do the same stuff you do...maybe even better...just we don´t care about tinytros or coding in assembler...been there, done that!

Also: don´t feel elite because you chose to rip our group-name...everyone knows you haven´t been in RSI back in the days...we in the real (T)RSi even know it exactly because of sth you told us yourself!

Now you are mad about Hellmood because he got the award instead of you, so you try to piss on him...it´s the same childish bullshit as opening a fake-RSi-group only because we, the real (T)RSi kicked you out some years ago!

Accusing others of being childish all the time is only possible for you because you act childish yourself all the time, so everyone else has to react childish, as this seems to be the only way to interact with you! :p

People seem to finally get what kind of idiot you are...i am happy about that!

Prod: it´s just ok...not worth a thumb to me...first wanted to upthumb but Hellmood had some very valid points there!
- releasing extremely ugly, buggy, and technically bad intros, where most are recycling of one effect
- writing terribly lame answers to people who give constructive comments instead of buying YouTube era shit
- instant thumbing down prods created by guys who don't worship you and your spamtastic intros
- Timelord has as much in common with great 256B intros as me with ballet

Now you can shave your pussy and go home.

nice visuals. nice sound. great.

how pressing a single MIDI note is "music", what do you say?

there hardly is any midi..
and drone music has been here from late 50's

This one really got a special flair. Between the lines there is a lot more content hardly seen in sizetros. And no, this one is definitely not ugly (honestly lol, who even claims to define that?). But it's a good compromise between size and atmosphere. Well done.

I will not respond to The Hateful Eight above, but for intrigued others passively allowing these forms of expressions :

1) "This might just have won the 256b compo at qbparty, had it not been lost by the organizers."
Red Sector Inc. was faulted and if only one of the protagonists in this thread is genuinely upset, it is us above anybody else, in this specific context (do not let words and postures fool you) as it took weeks to create Timelord while it takes 3 seconds for a lamer to call anybody else a lamer and destroy a prod thread.

2) Judgment of Solomon - a concept portraying how sometines not picking sides can be detrimentary to all contrary to popular belief or common aspiration.

3) If you’re not pissing someone off, you probably aren’t doing anything important explains in details how "drama" can come you way even if "[you are] averse (to it) - note "Rule 2: Hate is a side effect of impact"

While it is sad an uneducated minority of the ex-Austro-Hungarian empire demosceners (booing or whistling at parties ,thumbing down on name only, creating fake accounts, losing prods at parties, organizers orientating vocally audience votes live during compos etc...) are badly behaving you can nerverthless rely on the fact that at least one group Red Sector Inc. still has a spine in this sea of chaos.

Greets to all the other similar groups in the scene.

Impressive. I really love the dark and moody atmosphere in this one.

P.S. I really don't know any details about the RSI saga but I read it a lot here and it's not Baudsurfer who started the fight here by flaming and ranting around like immature nitpickers.
