It totally ruled solskogen like anything could.
A very nice production :)

Last scene was very nice, albeit short. A bit on the slow side. Also the 'blurring' was very aliased and misplaced. Very nice models, but it looks as if the whole demo is based on these few seen-before objects.

Wow! The models looked really nice and with a great soundtrack aswell!

boring, random scenes.. not very good gloom tune.. remind me minimalanimal as a whole..

kicked ass at the big screen. I love snarlings taste for abstract objects. looks very industrial

I found it a bit ho-hum. How many demos do there have to be that show random spikey objects? Oh well. :)

Some scenes looked great, others a bit random. Also looked to be borrowing a lot of visualice style ;) Good enough for a positive thumbing.

YES! i love this prod soo much!!!! stylish
rulezadded on the 2004-07-12 17:03:00 by quisten quisten
this demo is great all because of snarling.
rulezadded on the 2004-07-12 17:15:05 by lug00ber lug00ber
I really like it, but it comes up with a black rectangle if I run it fullscreen in any res , blocking the scenes

windowed works for fine but I'd love a fix

great demo.
but just like myself you make the mistake of just centering objects on the screen way too often ;)

Nice looking, but the content seems to be repeating itself bit too much..

the modelling bit is fucking awesome! snarling, you really got some skills! Lovely renderings too... nice blur, lighting and shadows. Solid!

GL_INVALID_OPERATION (or something like that) after the introductory part on my old box. Mhmm.

I really like the visuals. Care to tell how the lighting is done? The music sucks though.

Nice'n'shiny but somewhat boring.
rulezadded on the 2004-07-13 04:31:41 by asasel asasel
Funny but still rather mediocre fliltering on top of sometimes good and sometimes bad basic rendering.

Typography could've been better.. Music was nice though.

obi1: postprocessing :-) Most scenes use ordinary lighting with a glowish filter + noise on top

it crashes for me after the second scene: GL error (GL_INVALIG_ENUM) in: PBuffer::disable

I got the worst crash ever. Screen went totally mad and I had to power off and on (not even a hard reset worked!). Got GeforceTi4200.

It even happened in window mode!!

I got windows refresh at 100hz, but this demo flicks back to 60hz.

Crashes with this POPUP : GL error (GL_INVALIG_ENUM) in: PBuffer::disable

just before the third scene...it's a ok demo, cool music, and correct feeling. :OP fun...but plz try to fix that disabling of pbuffer on ATI

Mostly this is not much more than a bunch of abstract objects rotating around dead center. However, it's pretty nicely done and definitely worth a peak.

Doesn't even start here (FX5200). Switches to chosen resolution but goes back to desktop then.

this one is great. but on bigscreen while being very drunk it just wasnt catchy enough! However a VERY deserving demo for winning at solskogen and saved the pc demo-compo.
