the scene in the screenshot was the best of the demo, which (in difference from chaus theory) didn't get damaged as much by the replay IMO... this will probably end up #2 or #3 in my book.

Not anything fresh, but i like the effects in the middle part. Didn`t like the blending of the effects though. But a nice solid demo, so thumbs up. But next time be more creative :)
rulezadded on the 2007-08-05 03:29:25 by Zplex Zplex
this is actually cns' first demo if i'm not mistaken, so congratz! :)

i love the high energy in there and it's a really cool demo. minor nag is that like binary flow, it's really slick, but it doesn't work as an invitation. (sure, the party is mentioned regularly, but it still feels like an aside).

Well, that was informative. way to go guys, good to see you've whored yourselves out the right cause -a free 360 for an obligatory invite that is not even half as captivating as the asm 2005 invite. Go back to 64k already.

And fuckings to whoever got sand in his vagina during the showing of this entry at the compo -you made me watch this fucking TWICE.

was really cool, although some parts were all too mixed together and was impossible to discern what was going on (specially at the end if I recall properly).
ryg : actually I thought the same thing, but apparently Gargaj insists on that this is their second demo :). The first one was for Intel Demo Compo 2006.

On the other hand this was a really nice energetic and immensely powerful demo/invtro. It's damn great!

while ASD and CNCD offer story demos these days, this one is one of those typical demos which we've seen for years, showing just various, excellent looking effects. And I really love it! great choice of colors, great style and kickass music. My Nr. 3 in the compo after the two first mentioned prods.

Sorry guys, but this smells like heavy recycling at some places, at least idea-wise... Maybe it was intentional, but well... Still it's a beauty, and the soundtrack is okayish. So, not my favourite CNS product, but still, good enough to not thumb it down. But you can really do it better...

Can't be piggy but it didn't really make it for me. However, it's intended to be a party invitation not a bunch of breakthrough performances so nice demo anyway.
The music is nice but the mix ain't that good IMHO.

rulezadded on the 2007-08-06 12:45:21 by RA RA
sorry guys, but no. you are my friends, but i have to say it without a sugar coating. this isnt good.
ok, no - it's not that it's badly done or anything, and i dont think zoom is actually capable of making something downright ugly, and it's a perfectly watchable and efficient design. but come on. this is one of the cheapest things ive seen in ages. it's like you took the biggest, most hackneyed set of demoscene cliches ever and put them in one by one, added a cheesy-ass soundtrack and some flashy sync and shoved it out the door. cubes? glow? lines? even a tunnel - it's all present and correct. it's like a new version of binary flow, which wasnt exactly innovative or that interesting 2 years ago and in 64k.
if this is what demo style is supposed to be, if this is good direction, then my mind must be wired wrong. and i dont know how you won the xbox prize over two much better demos.

smash: It's cheap, no arguments there. Hell, it's the least advanced engine we ever had, it doesn't even have lightning, everything is lit with envmaps.

After our last release we decided to abandon addict2 for good but the new engine's development advanced slower than expected so we stood there with no tools to sync and arrange stuff.

2 weeks before asm we had nothing and we chose the option to hack the shit out of addict2 after all. Mad props to Gargaj for pulling at least a half decent engine in 10 days from scratch.

Sound system fuckup again. I already visioned Gargaj jumping off the new Boozembly cliffs, but luckily the only thing he could do was laughing at it :) Really really bad karma.

And yes, we were just as amazed for getting the xna prize as you :)

64k'ish visuals - it's difficult to remember what was one single scene about. and i quite disagree about the soundtrack which is hardly listenable :). nice drums but melody is dull. also very boring. sorry.

To be honest it was not very good. The whole stuff was rather ugly.

Thumb up anyway as it does the job as an invitation.
rulezadded on the 2007-08-06 20:22:22 by keops keops
Ugly might be a little bit strong. Let's say it was not my taste and "Debris/Chaos Theory was better" ;)

Congrats for trying something else than the usual 64k intros btw.

It's seems like some in here have forgotten what the scene is all about. Tis Conspiracy demo, which is their first was originally released as a XBOX 360 demo and not a PC demo. I very pleased that they did port it to windows that fast :) Of course it's not ground breaking or anything, but it's damn nice and most important it got soul.

It's like making your first scene production, you know, you production is not that good, mostly because your skills and experience aint fully developed yet, but most people can see your production got soul, because you like what you're doing.

About the demo itself, then i do think this demo got more soul than quality code and it wins with it. I even think there is a little inspiration from the saw of the Desert Dream demo by Kefrens, right guys?

And Smash, no matter how much i enjoy your productions, then you haven't really invented the wheel either, i mean lately your demos looks the same to me and your third place demo from Assembly isn't worth the third place if you ask me. But like any other scener you want to please the audience as much as Conspiracy wants, so i guess that put ya both in the same boat.

You can take the same with Farbrausch, lately their demos look the same, it's the same engine they uses and not matter how cool it looked to begin with, the worse it starts to show now. Debris isn't that groundbreaking if you look at the code, it's the idea and soul that made the difference and that's what Conspiracy succesfully archived here.

It _is_ a cool effect after all. Next to bloom/glow it's the effect to go for when you don't have time/skill to work on the actual content and still want to make an impression. ;)

And no, this is not very good. But they know, so why argue. :)

phew. finally home.
so.

quickhack: yes, we got terribly late, and considering i started creating the engine on the 19th (according to my sms log), it's fair to say that the whole thing was done in two weeks, mostly on PC. compared to that, i guess it isn't that bad, but of course the lack of inspiration and moreso the actual heart and soul can be smelled a mile off.

compo fuckup: to be honest, when the demo started without sync (contrary to reports, the soundsystem worked "fine") i just started chuckling and when they interrupted the demo in the middle i just laughed - i guess getting entries fucked up 3 years in a row is a tradition for me now :D (also, big big thanks and hugs to all the people who tried to preemptively calm me down when they realized that i might be close to hanging myself when the demo screwed up :)

XNA prize: I'm a surprised as anyone else, really - as i said during the prizegiving, both PP and STS deserved it way more than we did, but I guess MS has a different taste in demos :) in any case, I'm sure a fair share of the cash will be funneled into the Function funds so we'll try to recycle the "non-scene" money for scene causes :)

thumbnail size bug: well that certainly is a weird story. during compile, visual studio actually complained that the thumbnail was >16k so he replaced it. i converted down to a file to a 14k png so the warning disappeared, but it still apparently happens when you deploy the .ccgame - i guess they kindof meant the 16k for the final .xnb file :) anyway, fixed version will be up soon, but dont worry, it actually DOES deploy, it just throws an error message as, i dunno, camouflage :)

music is a bit uninspired, and i loved the resonance/overdrive breaking heard at asm07 (propably due to a fucked up audio system with too much gain) which is lacking from the demo itself making it a bit too clean and bland. visuals were great, but some scenes were a bit too simple and dull, but hey, it's an invitation. nice design as a whole.

I saw this for the first time on the bigscreen at Buenzli and I immediately liked it. Totally cool music and nice flow. I had this "nice 64k invitation" thought so I am now a bit surprised that it's almost 11MB. ;) It is a nice invitation nevertheless, someone might call it cheap, I call it CNS style (and this is NOT meant as an insult!). :)

My growing issue with Conspiracy is that I get the impression that all their demos are made from the same building blocks. I can´t see anything new in this one either, but it is surely beautiful in my eyes. The green-to-red gradient is a simple and powerful designeffect. Put together with the sync and the cool text-effect, and it becomes quite attractive.

The visuals, althoguh crisp and clean, are obviously lacking. However, this demo is more enjoyable to watch than 90% of all demos out there. Why? Because of the AMAZING music and great camera movement, which completely turned this around.

This music has like 3 notes and yet somehow it's better than anything I've ever written. (Also: If you're paying close attention, it looks like the spheres in the sphere-ball effect are rendered with 1 polygon each, using a depth buffer trick to make them intersect.)

Nice visuals and colors, nice soundtrack, making it enjoyable. So here goes the thumb up.

But on the down side, this looks like a Binary Flow 2 with just a bit of Chaos Theory shake, but certainly not as good as any of those two great productions, even though some parts look polished. Also, it doesn't have the "invite" feeling.

Would've loved to give this demo a platform thumb, but this looks like a 64k, feels rushed, and features a lot of cheap and cliched effects, scenes repeated twice with different effects, and so on. The Windows version also slows down to a crawl on an OC'd GTX 460, go figure.
added on the 2012-03-08 19:48:13 by moozooh moozooh
(The slowdown happens on the wireframe scenes in particular. For instance, the tunnel scene runs perfectly fine the first time, but stutters when the effect is applied near the end of the demo.)
added on the 2012-03-08 19:51:18 by moozooh moozooh
There is a lot more to say on this one than my original comment.

I suppose you had some time pressure, because this prod is very uneven. Some parts are highly polished (the opening scene), while others are average when not just crap.

There are also some good ideas that seemingly got hammered into the prod without getting the attention they deserved first (the greetings and the credits). Also, the prod tries a Chaos Theory like built up, but again it feels like an after thought and in the end it doesn't really make it.

Anyway, some really good elements and some good visual taste, but a lack of time/attention.
