it's an xbox demo and it rocks really hard... beatiful fractal-madness show. pls, do an avi, somebody!..

... waiting for the win32 version :) ...

a beautiful piece of work but doesn't run correctly on certain scenes on my xbox, and I don't have an explanation why as of yet. Everyone would love atleast an AVI if not a win32 port.

Very, very nice feeling...
rulezadded on the 2003-08-11 09:43:22 by dairos dairos
just ran it on a debug kit with attached to a rather very large sony TV. i'm not sure *what* it is that bugs, but i've seen it happening to certain games too. videosignal screwup..

but okay, the demo. well, it's uh.. the music is nice, i love the colors, but there's no action. alphablended/blurry 2d fractals won't cut it..

Great stuff, probably my favorite in the demo compo. Complex suxx forever!
rulezcdcadded on the 2003-08-11 13:47:52 by break break
looked really confusing and cool on the bigscreen.
rulezadded on the 2003-08-11 18:57:29 by Hatikvah Hatikvah
there will be even less action in the final version!

ps. it might take up to 5 minutes to boot party version on cdrw, if it even recognizes the disc...
added on the 2003-08-11 19:29:59 by jmagic jmagic
somewhat cool, and the music rocks. there were some very long parts with "black screen(tm)" during the show though, seems like a bug but maybe it's supposed to be like that (xecuter2).
added on the 2003-08-12 11:45:35 by gloom gloom
Hum, not one of the best Complex demos.
All I saw was some fractalzoomers.
I think it ended a bit too high in the compo.
added on the 2003-08-12 11:50:27 by Scali Scali
Hmm, still won't boot (EvoX bios)
added on the 2003-08-12 13:13:52 by sagacity sagacity
Though, the fractal zoomers were cool. They were NOT in "2d" since you could see that stuff was in front of other stuff when the camera moved etc. It was in 3d or atleast had some perspective stuff mangled into them (layers?)

Nice to see more demos on xbox :)

rulezadded on the 2003-08-12 19:03:17 by uncle-x uncle-x
Whoa. Rarely are fractals to be seen with THIS kind of beauty.

Codewise it's nothing really special (considering it was done with the XDK), but for the visual and soundtrack alone a thumb up.

rulezadded on the 2003-08-12 22:44:43 by stonda stonda
beside the fact it's an xbox demo (i don't like xbox much) it was very well done! i guess the coders used the official XDK which would have been evil...
rulezadded on the 2003-08-13 10:08:12 by Kojote Kojote
tried this from evox and from the xdk boot menu. didn't work.

runs very fine on my xbox (after some time of loading that is).
a lot of fractals, but all look fine.
together with the music the demo nicely produces a mood.
i especially liked those bw slengpung pictures, retouched to produce an end-of-world atmosphere.

what? another of my comments gone! well... anyway, I really like this and it's nice to see some new prods by jmagic. the favourite part is that really creamy fractal-zoom. it could have lasted for minutes imho!
stefan: i've been thinking about that too. in most parts it must be layers but there are some parts that feel really 3d (like the one in the screenshot)...
five thumbs up (and one in the ass) as jugi would have said ;)

ok this prod absolutely kicks ass! best non commercial software on xbox to date!

i had no probs running this, didnt even bother burning the iso, just extracted the contents of the iso (soundtrack inside :-D ) using XDFSExtract and made a menu for demos on my Evo-X dashboard and it loaded and executed in around 10secs.

Superb prod with massive respect to Complex not only for this demo but for all they're doing for the xbox scene also.
rulezadded on the 2004-02-05 03:47:50 by keito keito
also strange to note that the internal name given from the .xbe file for the demo in the evo-x launcher is RUINS, perhpas a working project title maybe?

also forgot to say the soundtrack rox aswell!

ugh, 5 minutes of fractals? I mean, come on, even if they are beautiful fractals, building a demo on one routine is a no-no.
Oh, wait, there were also those spinning cubes. Great 3D graphics. On par with an 8 MHz Amiga500.

"The Secret of My Endurance"
(from Dangling In The Tourne)
by Charles Bukowski

I still get letters in the mail, mostly from cracked-up
men in tiny rooms with factory jobs or no jobs who are
living with whores or no woman at all, no hope, just
booze and madness.
Most of their letters are on lined paper
written with an unsharpened pencil
or in ink
in tiny handwriting that slants to the
left

and the paper is often torn
usually halfway up the middle
and they say they like my stuff,
I’ve written from where it’s at, and
they recognize that. truly, I’ve given them a second
chance, some recognition of where they’re at.

it’s true, I was there, worse off than most
of them.
but I wonder if they realize where their letters
arrive?
well, they are dropped into a box
behind a six-foot hedge with a long driveway leading
to a two car garage, rose garden, fruit trees,
animals, a beautiful woman, mortgage about half
paid after a year, a new car,
fireplace and a green rug two-inches thick
with a young boy to write my stuff now,
I keep him in a ten-foot cage with a
typewriter, feed him whiskey and raw whores,
belt him pretty good three or four times
a week.
I’m 59 years old now and the critics say
my stuff is getting better than ever.

Why haven't i thumb this up yet?

I don't have a big hard on for fractals typically but this is a very very good show. Music in all its cheesiness helps.

What a trip!
Some scenes like the photo cubes feel a bit out of place, but wow zoom zoom zoom :D

Thanks Gargaj! Worked perfectly fine in 1920x1080 on a 7950 on W7/64 <3

Some of the best 2D fractals in any demo and lovely Bukowskian scenerpics and a nice track.
