Random Demoscene Fun Fact

category: residue [glöplog]
- In 2002 a demogroup called The Bongers was close to release a demo featuring only a black screen for 5 minutes. Just before the deadline they found all effects they thought they coded were actually a bad LSD trip.

- "Linger in the shadows" is based on a true story.

And now for some real(?) facts:

- Turrican is an italian name and Katakis is a greek one
- The demo "9 fingers" took it's name from the fact that the main coder broke his finger while playing football and he had to code with 9 fingers only.
- The music from mental hangover by scoopex uses samples from the marble madness coin-op. The creator of it was waiting for a marble madness cabinet to arrive but it broke during transport. He was very angry and so the music of the demo follows his angry mood at the time.
- There were never 7800 polygons in Dope. Larusso is a math teacher. The multiple lights at the end are just an environment mapping of some texture of a man in a bear fur.
- Lucky & Tigrou party (LTP) was named after Lluvia's two cats? (I think, always found that fact cute :)
- The greek Gardening parties were named after a quote, when programming is too hard for you, you should become a gardener or something. The quote came after a tiniest mandelbrot fractal competition between two coders. The winner sent his version and some GIF with advertisements of gardening tools to the other coder :)
- If you copy second reality in a deep directory (like inside 3-4 dirs) there is a crash at the 3d bobs with shadows part (The bug even happens in dosbox, I wonder why?)
