The "help identify this demo" thread

category: general [glöplog]
I've got two to start with; the first is for a friend of a friend who has only this to say: "The distinguishing feature of this demo was an eyeball that would float across the screen periodically, and in that eyeball was rendered a mini-version of the entire screen, including the eyeball, recursively. (super-tiny though, the second level recursive drawing was only a few pixels).". He couldn't remember the platform. Thoughts, ideas? I'm guessing it wasn't Windows as the second recursive drawing was so tiny.

Second demo is a DOS demo from the mid- to late-1990s, was small-ish for the time (I think it was ~600K or less), and mostly (only?) showed objects made up from volumetric z-clipped gradient-filled spheres. If you've played the game Ečstatica you know what this looks like (sample screenshot).

First demo has been identified as one of Tran's prods (probably Luminati). Still looking for help on the second one...

No, those are vectorballs; see the game I mentioned for clarification. Also, demo was mid- to late-90s.

In a way, the Ecstatica rendering reminds me that Digimind 4k. But I am not sure if that's the demo you search for.

What a great software-rendering 4K! Yes, that's the same effect, but it's not the demo I'm looking for.

I'm looking for a demo that is probably late 90s for DOS (320x200x32bit most likely), it had wireframes and dot vectors of cities, some kind of pumping techno music (no surprises there..) and as a distinguishing feature, assembler code scrolling on the screen. IIRC, it was basically a one-screen demo. I found it on Pouet at one point but have no recollection whatsoever what it was.
