My amiga idols are back! I could hardly believe it when watching the demo.

Rules bigtime.

Loved that kind of 3D fractal zoomer, I have always wanted to do that on PC but you made it much better than I would have done it anyway :)
rulezadded on the 2007-04-09 04:09:15 by keops keops
This prod was really excellent imo.
The final parts kick ass (3D fractal + greets + end), and I like the tune :).

A little stuff : there is a specific cursor arrow (when you look the demo in windowed mode), nice :).

Some great effects especially the 3d fractal effect and nice graphics. But the direction is kinda messy, i would have thought that would be better when it comes from Andromeda. Didnt like the music so much. Anyway, big thumbs up for this demo and the comeback!

I can't help to think this is overrated, I think the mfx demo for instance was much better, I didn't dislike the demo either, but I was overall not that impressed :-/
added on the 2007-04-09 23:56:06 by thec thec
Dropping a comment without a clear memory on Nexus7 is an act of arrogance. I know. But without the association with an obvious legend, this is not a real outstanding production:

++ I loved the time scratching start
++ subtle use of tv damage effects
+ wobbling slimy things
+ perfectly designed for big screen
- effects shown too long (esp. the cubes)
- lens flares
- As a non programmer I do not get the "3d fractal thing". Aren't those just two objects being blended? It looked nice for the first few seconds, though.

Although nothing new (for me at least), definitely a great demo.

We speculate if Andromeda would strike back at BP ! They thankfully did ! And definitely with a cewl demo.... Great Comeback :)

This was very enjoyable on the big screen and was my personal candidate for a first place until debris hit the screen. Very nice effects, very nice demo feeling and Archmage is a very cool person to talk to.

And since Andromeda is planning to return to demomaking for good, this demo oozes good news all over.

Very nice prod and comeback. Huge thumbs up from the "other" andromeda =)

"bring back the only demo art - bring back for me only the old times" I recall a certain demo pleaded a while ago... ;)
Seems like Andromeda heeded that call - because this demo really is demo art of the old way, but moved into the new era with grace. For example it is great to see a demo incorporate some good 2d-pictures again, and clean, "demo-style" effects.
The only part I don't really think fit in is the black-and-white infiinte cubes part, the harsh monochrome colorscheme and overall feel of that doesn't really fit in with the other parts.

Anyway - a very good comeback demo!
rulezadded on the 2007-04-10 00:35:19 by Sdw Sdw
A couple of cool effects (the plastic-looking balls and tentacles were very nice), and some really really good 2D-art.
Inconsistent design and awful music ruins it for me though.
added on the 2007-04-10 02:56:39 by lug00ber lug00ber
Great to see the heroes of my youth back. It's a good start in the new era, but I expected a second Nexus 7. This one rules in many ways, but also has some empty looking scenes (cubes) which don't fit to the rest of the demo.

while i was preparing the pc competition, some guy was standing behind me and asked if he could check on the compo machine. and then i saw the half forgotten andromeda logo, all the handles, FTW!, one effect after the other, not a single screen without some kind of idea!

i kept the disk. "235 PC DEMO ANDROMEDA".

No thumb from me, since i hated the music and most of the parts were ugly. A few decent effects rescued it from being horrible, however.

This demo is fucking awesome. I know scene.org awards are biased and stuff but hopefully this gets the 'best effects' award because it really deserves it. Best effects for a *freaking* long time!

Colors in the screenshot scene should've been selected more wisely but other than that after watching this second time I fully understood the choice of colors which seemed rather awkward during the compo.

Thanks for the warm welcome back. The feedback from you guys clearly states that there is much room for improvement on our part. Luckily, we think so too.

As for those of you who say that you had expected more from Andromeda, ask yourselves: had you really expected ANYTHING at all from Andromeda?

This wasn't about topping Nexus 7 or making Nexus 8. It was about getting back into the game of demomaking. Which we did. And we're pretty proud of that.

As this is the very first thing we code for the pc platform, I would greatly appreciate bug reports. If you feel like helping, write down a description of the bug on a barrel of beer and send it to: mr. Hyde, 2286 Alexander Strasse, 88932 Hamburg. Or, e-mail me at hyde a-t andromeda.no. I've got one report saying that the music glitches at two occasions during the demo, and I'm particularly interested in hearing if anyone else has this problem.

Thanks for your great response here on pouet, and for all voters at BP! It has been a mixed pleasure learning to code the directX api, but it was worth it.

Btw, the model in the fractal zoomer goes under the name Alexander's horned sphere (google it for pictures) and is a famous counter example in topology, discovered in 1924 and bears the name of its inventor.

Oooh, I thought that was that QED demo you were working on back in '94? ;) Great to see you back again guys! Though you'll have to brush the dust of your design skills a bit, and where's those bloody transition effects that you're so famous for? Seriously though, great production and hope to see more of you soon. Hurra for Andromedarane! :)

That fractalzoomer effect is surely the best.
I've no idea hows that coded,i dont care, but my thumb goes for that.

Otherwise the demö is mediocore.

Fractal zoomer and artwork were the icing on the cake, both were excellent, the rest was good.

It's really very nice nice to see Andromeda back again after such a long time.

+ kickass fractal zoomer
+ twitching bending stuff that doesn't self intersect (I have to check again though).
+ unlimited cubes

- piano together with synthetic instruments may not seem so bad, but it is punishable byyyyh: listening to piano combined with synthetic instruments!!!

I guess half of the guys here judge this demo on Andromeda's past achievements, blinded by their comeback. Unfortunately (or fortunately, because I can stay objective) I'm not very familiar with the oldschool amiga scene so their name doesn't really ring a bell for me (so sue me).

That said, I thought there were some really cool effects in this one, the wobbly stuff in the beginning, the colliding galaxies and yeah, the 3d infinite zoomer, despite having coder colors. But the whole thing lacks consistency and some proper design and the terrible, terrible music really destroyed the wow-effect for me.

forgetting entirely about the long history these old farts have, i was impressed with this for the quality of the effects. some modern, interesting and clever routines here that arent trivial to pull off. added to that, everything runs completely smoothly on less than top end hardware.

Quite an impressive PC debut and comeback in general.
The galaxy collision greetings ran a little slow paced on my slightly outdated machine (Mob.Radeon x600, 64MB).
Nice sync and effect ideas.
But did I spot dutch colour scheme in the 3d fractal zoomer ;)
And no raytraced scroller with fuckings?!?!

Funny that someone should post that kind of comment here, the very same day I had a chat with Hyde about people's expectations once you released a killer-demo.

Same goes for FR-25 and now FR-41.

Give people a gold bullion once and the day you give them "only" gold coins, they are kind of disappointed.

Some even happen to call you names for not giving a bullion again :) (see some comments on some FR demos those last years...)

Ok, ok - one might argue that the 1st feeling is the right one, but after watching this prod a few more times, I have to revise my judgment - I think it's a very good comeback and it does sport some interesting effects. However, I just can't shake the fact that I really, really don't like the music. I just keep looking for a melody, but every time I think I found one, the music changes a bit and I'm left lost and confused again. Which is a shame, because I'm sure there's been put a lot of effort into this, but it just doesn't quite catch me, as I hoped it would. If I could change my vote, I would make it a piggy. Enormous piggy, yes - but still a piggy.
An long overdue thumb up! I can't quite put my finger on it, but there has always been a quality factor in Andromeda demos that I don't see elsewhere. Very clean, slick and appealing.
