If it crashes, try updating your driver. Should work fine on Radeon 9600 or newer and GeForce 5 or newer. Video version can be found here: http://www.scene.org/~gloom/tg07invtro/outracks-tg07invtro.xvid.avi

Very inviting. The cube thing was very nice :)
rulez added on the 2007-02-24 10:02:00 by Preacher Preacher
Cool invitro. Personal opinion chart coming up
+ A bit of nostalgia (rotating timebox)
+ Timing to the most distinct pieces of the soundtrack (not to all beats all the time).
+ That good old demo feeling.
+ Great sine-wave in shadebobs when the music suggests they should come in.. doh.

- Piano mixed with synth stuff :)
- humour (aww come on the sliding puzzle was a bit funny).
- a bit soft.

tft: Last year you said the following about our invite:
"Guess I cant thumb it down since its probably a piece of good work. But TG sucks, we all know it. Also the demo was kinda boring, nice looking but it did nothing for me. I guess TG payed you to do this prod :D"

What's your beef with TG, really? Have we disqualified your entry or something? The party is exactly as good as the guests make it, and people like Outracks actually contribute instead of sitting on the sideline whining.

A bit empty visuals but the music makes up for it. Though the melody feels off at places. Or is it just me?

nice inv, but lacks the outracks feel... the music is great but a bit too hectic (i was about to start singing "Word up, it's the coooodewoooord..."), and the visuals are a mess...

oh and duckers, learn to make a screenshot with resampling would you please? :(

I didn't like the shot of the breasts though. That wasn't needed.

ant: Yes, this invtro has a huge amount of breasts and nudity. I too found this to be completely unnesessary is just a cheap way to win the compo. Duckers -- bad move!

Betong: TG is Norway in a nutshell, "you cant do this, you cant do that, do as we say or we will throw you out" Fhaakin guards that think they are police. Bill Hicks sums it up with his famous statement "YOU ARE FREE TO DO AS WE TELL YOU"

Nothing personal to you guys organizing the scene part of TG, but in my opinion, TG sold out 10 years ago together with Assembly and The Party. Groups just release stuff there for the moneyprices. VIVA LA BREAKPOINT!

tft: I am sorry, but do you deliberately try to come off as completely retarded?

TG is a party that houses close to 6000 people, so no; you cannot drink yourself senseless, occupy a whole row by yourself or climb around on the stage when you feel like it. An event on such a scale needs a degree of control, which is also clearly expressed before you enter. If you don't like it? Fine -- stay at home. There are thousands upon thousands of people who come to the party every year, CLEARLY happy to be there and to have a good time, so the party does something right for sure.

..and stop quoting the great Bill Hicks, you ass.

Is it only my pc that runs this so slow it makes a slideshow look fast then? Getting about 1 frame every 20 seconds or so, think it's probably a record! Dual 3ghz xeon, 2gb ram, quadro fx 1000 (similar to gf 5600 or so I think) video, if it's of interest.

Internet is so slow here right now that it would be better to send the video by pigeon, but i'll watch it some time.

HEYY GLOOM, calm down buddy. No need for namecalling ;) Maybe Ive been acting like a retard. Most drunks behave like retards, so there you go ;)
I admire you guys organizing big parties. Alot of responsebility,hard work and dedication. Me bashing it down is totally unfair. But for people like me, and many others in the demoscene, TG is not the party to attend. So thats why we go to BP,KG and other great parties where we can act like retards and nobody throws us out :) Like Solskogen, another excellent party witch I understand you also organize :) So keep up the good work, and no hard feelings?

Also, sorry for posting a TG discussion on a Outracks demo thread. But HEEEEY...thats the way it is.

I'm sorry, is somone actually bitching about Danny's great picture from YEEAARRS back, something we all recognize who have seen the demo, being used in this demo because ... "nudity is bad mmmmkay?"

That's just freaking astounding.
