100% ugly, boring, standard in yer ass.

(..and the "since i'm out of original ideas, i'll just pitch the music up and down a couple of notes each four bars"-"technique" was a looser-option twenty years ago and it still is)

Looks all in all a bit to simple, colors could be better. But quite good anyway, no real speed problems (pIII-450, gf2 ti)

Um. What did I just watch? The colours were just ... just ... the goggles! They do nothing!

I sort of liked these kind of things five years ago, when they were 64k.

ekoli: Thank you. Thank you very very much, I really appriciate this.
To tell you the truth, I'm not THAT satisfied with this demo. It has some ok syncs and whatsoever, but yeah the colors are ugly as fuck and it has no real new stuff.
The whole point is that this is just a rest for the demosystem, and as a test it worked out, it ran OK on most configs with acceptable speed, and I was able to do the whole synchronizing work in a couple of hours, so it's time to search for some willing graphicians and make some cooler stuff :)
Until then, it's maybe time to figure out WHY it's called "Spectrum"... :))

that has to be one of *the* ugliest zoomblurs ever seen, of course only exceeded by the one in 'project genesis'.

anyways, ugly colors and goa music.
the music is basic ( and maybe bass ic )
but the rest is so trippy ... that finally the bass becaume tripping too...

definitly a good demo. :)

Gargaj: because it looks like a zx spectrum demo? :D
Btw, your demosystem sounds promising. Next time you have to show us what that baby really can do!

a 64k in a demo size... with ugly colors and design

It ran ok, the music was pretty cool, but it looked really flat and garish, and I found it very tedious to watch.

sorry

I found out that the envmapped objects have fucked texcoords on some Radeons, seems those drivers won't support D3DVTXPCAPS_TEXGEN_SPHEREMAP, which is weird, because the R9500pro I tested on does, I suspect it happens when you install the driver first, and THAN DirectX9, since it's a new feature in D3D9. I'm not sure I want to release a final tho. (I'll change my mind if anyone is willing to retexture the models :))

In case you'd like to have the music in HQ, you can get it here.

Gloom: Sorry, I like modulation.

Mother, mother, my eyes hurt!
I demand a grayscale version :)

I saw this once on the bigscreen at the party, and it appeared to be a usual okay demo. Thumbs up since you saved the party, being the only one to release a demo.

This had some nice bits, but seems kinda slapped together. Didn't leave me begging for more, but was okay to watch.
MY FUCKING EARS, MY FUCKING EARS!!!!
I really hope that was a buggy musicplayer...

Yeah the music was popping like mad, was that a mod? Awful big prod for a mod if so... crunchy samples?

The synching is neat, especially the stop and go greets section, would have been cool if some other things were done with it instead of everything stopping...

there's a link above for the music (~2MB ogg), would be nice to know if the player fucked up...
