Great OCS prod. The rotozoomer in particular looks delicious!

Enjoyed your entry. Particularly like the tunnel.

those shiny bobs are great! totally underrated demo, loved this one!

Nice demo. Don`t understand why it came only on 10th place in the competition, it would have earned a better placement.

Loved the bobs a lot, the tune is great. I'll run it again on the real thing, feel good.

I quite liked this one but the competition was fierce this year.

Those bobs, are they HAM bobs? Don’t think I saw that before. Also the tunnel moves really smoothly compared to its texture resolution. Seems like some subtexel scroll with shifted tunnel table increments underneath.

Has design, flow, great music and bobs .... nothing more needed. Great stuff

The real deal. I would say some limits were broken & expanded. ;)

Designed with yummy color combinations, and I like the title appearing in the metaballs. :)

Yes 10th place is way too low even with tough competition.
rulez added on the 2019-04-23 06:34:19 by Serpent Serpent
Slightly fixed version under the official download link:
An AGA fix is probably not coming, as AGA is too slow.

I really want to check the code of this prod.
And I consider this is one of the higher praises you can say about any demo.
rulez added on the 2019-04-23 15:21:57 by peskanov peskanov
I can't understand how this didn't end up way higher in the ranking. There's a serious display of coding chops going on here. Great prod!

@bifat: Colour me intrigued! What kind of OCS trickery is used in this production that is too slow on AGA? It would be super cool with some info on the tech particulars in this demo. I suspect there's a lot more to it than meets my non-coder eye.

Very nice and criminally underrated in the compo.

I don't really have an opinion of this one way or the other, but "Future of Limits" is a hilarious name.
added on the 2019-04-24 12:39:21 by noby noby
Although the name is generated with our demoname generator, we picked it deliberately and it has a meaning that we tried to carve out a bit at least. Photon seems to be on track. There's an update available at the link above, it should look correct on AGA now, but on AGA the framerate breaks down for a short while.

Definitely my favourite from the compo by far. Nice subtexel tube and the Ham-Balls are yummy.

It got lost in the compo, but there is some really nice stuff going on in here.

This demo should have been higher in the ranking. very good code work here.

Nice to see groups as old as my grandpa still producing new demos, but this one shows no surprise. Unfortunately. I liked the soundtrack, smells like childhood.

@Hollowone: Who am I to contradict, and I totally dig the soundtrack.
@Grip: I need to catch up a lot. Cornerstones of this production were higher resolution, subpixel, I finally got saturation working with blitter shading, and I did the kind of vectorballs I always wanted to do. I do not fully understand the AGA issue either. In theory AGA should have more than enough bandwidth to make up for the need to emulate the screenmode in question, but in practice it does not, not even on an 68030. I suspected the many interrupts to be the cause, but the slowdown also appears on the emulated combination of AGA and a 68000 CPU.

Great stuff!! Awesome vector balls & funky roto-zoomer amongst others

I wasn't so keen on the blitter addition stuff..looked a little out of place alongside the other nice parts.

As Paradroid mentions, it got a little lost among the other compo entries, and should have placed higher!
rulez added on the 2019-04-24 21:45:53 by DanLemon DanLemon
Really nice code in this one. Should have placed way higher.

Totally awesome and as already said, the real deal for an OCS-Demo. Good to have you back on track and thanks for all those tools you provide.

Blitter saturation is sweet. Shiny vector balls also. I wonder what other code is hiding in your suitcase.

Seems a little fast for a 68000 ... which CPU did you run this on?
rulez added on the 2019-05-06 20:29:59 by Steel Steel
Try to underclock your 68000 to get the framerate right.
added on the 2019-05-06 23:40:54 by bifat bifat
Very very nice! Some proper coderporn here and it definitely deserved a higher ranking.

Very Nice. Looks shit on youtube. See it on CRT real 50hz.
