Which is the worst prod you've ever done?

category: general [glöplog]
Since we already have a thread asking what the best prod you've ever done is I thought it would be interesting to ask what the worst prod you've ever done is.
Of course some of you may be too ashamed of your old mistakes to admit some lame prod you've done many years ago but I sincerely hope lots of people will take part in this thread.
The worst prod I've done myself is definately Saulin penis. The whole thing started when I was hanging outside the partyplace of Escape 2001 with my friend Sauli. A guy I knew from school (I think his name was Seppo) turned up with a digital camera and for some reason Sauli decided to unzip his pants and get his private parts out. Of course the whole incident was captured in detail by Seppo with his digital camera.
Well, later on being bored to death I got this "great" idea that it would be hilarious to see Sauli's reaction to seeing his private parts on the big screen during the democompo and I decided to quickly code some kind of crappy that would use the recently taken photographs as the graphics.
However, a demo is nothing without music and I had no good unused tunes available. So I decided to make a soundtrack for the demo on the spot at the partyplace. There was just one problem with that, I hadn't bothered taking any speakers or headphones with me to the party place. So I just put random instruments in random places with FT2. Great way of composing music eh?
Even though the code was basically just a small program that played some music with the SEAL audio library and displayed some .PCX images using a routine written by Jokke/Bad Karma (the PC demogroup Bad Karma not the Amiga warez group...) for lamertut.txt I managed to get some bug in there somewhere that I really couldn't find at all. How could that be possible you might ask. Well, having recently looked at the source code to the "demo" I apparently spent most of the time inventing funny names for variables that were never even used in the program, guess it "seemed like a good idea at the time". In the end Kanttu found the bug however and the demo was ready for the compo.
All good and well so far... but then, Sauli was unfortunately able to see the demo before the compo so the whole point of him being shocked by seeing his privates on the big screen went to waste and we just ended up with having one more crappy demo with no point in the world.

P.S. It would be cool if Pouet had a preview function, I'm sure this post is filled with spelling mistakes that will make me seem like a fucking idiot, but reading through the text in this small window with all the bbcode inside it is just too much of a pain in the ass to do.

On Pouet, spelling mistakes are not required to "seem like a fucking idiot".

Finally! We know about the story behind saulin penis :]

My worst productions? Several..

zero bytes must be my best and worst at the same time.

Other needless releases might be 4 hours demo, photos and a bouncing pixel.

Though, most of these were done jff in a few time. I never took them hard. So, they can't be that bad if I had my fun! The one that is mediocre and killed me must be X-kore. While the code was nice, I met my vain glory and overpressure/obsession once again to finish something that is unfinished and I was only tired and unsattisfied, and then had a sever scene depression for a month that made me forget the CPC and even the demoscene and coding for sometime (I have 3 weeks to code at all and I only play games ;P I know I have to revive back but not with CPC anymore!). This can be considered a bad demo, one that kills your motivation severly..

Kakkonen on ykkönen by Unique. Really bad demo but at least it won the competition :)

Also, I remember one I did while at Germany in Quickbasic while eating Pizza, drinking Ouzo and making my keyboard a mess. I wanted to open the group "Whateverism" then and make one stupid demo a day, but then I came sober and abandoned the idea. This one is never released..

raimo, I don't think Chicago is my worst prod because I didnät know shit about coding back then. Therefor Kakkonen on ykkonen is the worst. hyvää vappua haistakaa vittu saatana
