the cube owns me and my family. :) awsome demo! good to see some good old competitive "fuckings" too. :)) that's _real_ scene spirite (forget lame weakass "friendship" and "just 4 fun"!)

has a certain "ok now is 5 fps still realtime?" feel but otherwise just totally tentacly <3
rulezadded on the 2006-04-19 02:33:23 by Gargaj Gargaj
hmm, it works quite smooth on the real hardware, so why 5 fps? maybe only spikeball is a bit slow.

overall, the best demo i've seen at GBA, much more impressive than previous SFC demo. soundtrack is just perfect!

I have no fucking clue why I didn't see that I got übergreeted when I saw it the first time. Doesn't change anything, it still rules ;)
Love the MC trashing, love the effects. But I think we already knew that.

kusma: Thank you, that worked just great.

The demo looks great on real hardware, the video they played on the bigscreen was awful with some ugly deinterlace. Here comes a much deserved thumb for the best GBA demo ever. Keep up the good work.

the demo kicked ass, is there anyway to make a videodump that runs fullframerate? maybe some offlinerendering with fullscreenantialiasing? Since if you dont care about FPS in a demo anyway, why care about having it realtime?

We couldn't fit the new glow into ram for this demo, so the one in Newton is still the state of the art. ;)

very nice, although hardly realtime here and there :)

and about the glow challenge: iirc in your stream demo it was those gradients put in sprite tile mem, and hw does the blending. at least dairos has done that before :) (not in full resolution though, but almost)
rulezadded on the 2006-05-29 17:33:10 by shadez shadez
dairos' version had way less precision, and he didn't manage to cover the entire screen. about the accusations of non-realtime scenes: LIES!
added on the 2006-05-29 17:37:25 by kusma kusma
haven't tested on real hw yet, but at least "greetings to lord graga" scene is quite slow on vba (also, weirdly, that dot torus thing).. anyway, have to make deeper check to that glow thing since it shouldn't include that much mystic :)
added on the 2006-05-29 17:56:42 by shadez shadez
vba plays it _way_ to slow, although it isnt super fast on the real thing either :)

yes, we knew about dairos' failed attempt ;)

Every crappy "HOW TO POGRAM GBA IN 24 HOURS" tutorial must step aside for this demo because it has all the following shit:

--Tilemap Animation

--Both mode 4 + mode 0

and of course palettefading and bitmaps... *_*

Now, if it only it could loop properly...
(or is it my flashcard?)

~Afterthought Scroller~

5FD is proof that many TBL(-esque) AGA demos could also be done on GBA, don't you think? My animal instincts tell me that the sound is steamed and I think it should have been sequenced equally well in only 4 channels, 8bit/22500. The very first screen was done in mode4, but for its simplicity it should have been in mode1/mode2. The music sounds like a dirty industrial re-arrangement of a spagwestern filmtrack, no?
rulezadded on the 2007-03-16 07:24:58 by Momo Vampire Momo Vampire
The music is an xm, from 6 to 8 channels at the same time... of course I had to use some loops to meet nowadays need for filtersweeps ;)
Spag-western, hell... that's what comes from being italian...

btw, if you want streamed sound just wait for BP.

Damn SFC for making so good GBA demos that it isn't even worth it for anyone else to try it on that platform anymore! ;)

One of the most advanced and impressive demos for the GBA.
Rocks really hard.

Incredible 3D but ugly visuals. Maybe on purpose...
