Hi, this is a party version. Pretty rushed so on the slow side (content is really not optimized, better version might come in next days). Runs on 3060ti, but something faster is much preferred. Recent Vulkan-capable drivers required. Tested on AMD (rx6xxx) and NV (RTX3xxx) GPUs.

Video coming soon (very)

Works on RTX2070s/32ram/Ryzen 7 5800X but don`t expect miracles, FPS between 7 and 20 at best

@wysiwtf interesting. Saw no issues from 20 and 30 series owners. Might have to investigate:(

I like the new Mawi look - shiny, yet grainy. Really tasteful new color combinations. Huge scenes with small details. The architecture scene with the face and the birds is absolutely fantastic. 2D is subtle and to the point. And of course the organic objects and the crazy hair/fur (?) that form the Mawi logo. My RTX3060 barely manages... some scenes run at a lower framerate, but I was still able to enjoy it. Oh yes, the soundtrack... Chaser often hits the mark for me. Perfect match for the scenes.

Click.Click.Click. again :D

The last effect in this demo is amazing.

yes, what tjahzi said, that hairy logo is great... overall it's a bit messy here and there, like.. too many things moving/displacing/glitching and then particles on top. but then again, there are still nice little nuances like the people and stuff.

Clear favourite from Xenium from me.
Great color combinations, very detail scenes which sometimes looks almost unpolished but it's so well done so I think it's the purpose. And the soundtrack is also a perfect match for the scenes.

Hard to read at times but that's some slick shit!

That's quite some epic stuff. Love the musical change around the middle.

Seems a bit messy, but still a hell of a demo with powerful soundtrack!

Love he color scheme in this prod! i watched in 360p because of horrible network so a bit hard to tell what is going on in the details, but that vegetation mawi logo at the end sure looked awesome!

Was running quite okay on RTX 3070.
The MAWI logo from the screenshot was really nice. Everything else seemed just like a buildup to this poiint.

some really excellent moments here

Awesome stuff, love the sense of scale! Great to see at least one proper demo in the compo, clear winner imo.

Had to check it again, but the color scheme seems to be someones favourite upthere :p a level coding we wish we could handle, and if thats a 2080 i certainly dont need a 4000 series yet ... procedural goodness

Not as strong as previous year’s demo, measured by the level of surprise, but still strong, nevertheless

coool stuff! ran very slowly on my rtx 3060 though (desktop res of 1440p). Were the temporal artifacts from some form of raytracing+denoising or was it just TAA? Impressive engine in any case, also banger track by Chaser.

absolute slideshow compared to the yt capture.

Typical (means TOP) MaWi quality. GR8 taste in msx and gfx palettes. Top code with artistic design. Pure gold. Thank you Guyz!

Another powerful Polish release. Top work!

solved the crash situation, in the end i needed to set my desktop to FHD/60Hz res manually before starting the demo. which seems a bit funny since first thing it does after launch is a res-change to FHD anyway... maybe it cant cope with 144hz refresh rate?

Anyway, nice style and atmosphere! I just wish the demo was a bit less heavy on the grainy posproccing.

are there some commandline parameters apart from the vsync thing?
rulez added on the 2023-09-18 18:39:27 by wysiwtf wysiwtf
@wrighter Temporal artifacts are mostly from the volumetrics (temporal aspect of it). There is also reprojection in voxel lighting and pretty naive TAA on top of it. So there you go.

@wysiwtf This is weird. I also run 144Hz 1440p displays (two of them). For the windowing system i use GLFW. Maybe update could help.
As for the grain it is actually not the postprocessing:) It is because i either turned off or seriously dialed down all the denoisers because they sucked. So in the end there are multiple lighting components which are grainly/noisy.
