Kicks ass. Nice to see new people doing stuff on the C64, especially if the effects are of this caliber.

great C64 demo

Greatest C64 demo I've seen in quite a while.

Rocks. Loved the silly scroller the most

Wow! Some fuckin amazing effects. Bauknecht, new power on the C64?
rulez added on the 2007-08-13 00:05:22 by Optimus Optimus
cool fx! isn't the lightsource effect a bit more highres that what is usual for su ch effects on c64? Unlimited stars? Loved the 3d scroller too.

Sometimes it confuses me to see mad "wasting" his energy with retro stuff (where he could code so much nice effects for me :) ). But this one is really awesome. I have no idea about c64 coding, but to me emperion looks way better than any other c64 demo I have seen so far. The only thing I didn't like was the constant loading breaks. But I guess you can't do anything about that...

the only C64 at evoke?!?! And then additionally from a not C64 scener?!?? :D thumb alone for that! and of course for the nice fx. unfortunately DJ-pong was a too strong crowd pleaser! I didn't vote it first!! ;]

awesome. i love the oldschool megademo format; unique track/gfx for each routine. brings back memories of Rebels Megademo on the Amiga. i would have liked a nice menu interface for each effect, so i could select randomely. really cool work guys

rulez added on the 2007-08-13 10:10:29 by vscd vscd
I agree with "coder pron" thing and as a coder I liked it. But it's really sad to see c64 demos in "wild demo" category.
rulez added on the 2007-08-13 10:25:20 by Skate Skate
this is really something.. misses some real flow inbetween the screens, but still this is a killer..
rulez added on the 2007-08-13 10:32:19 by toxie toxie
well done bkn! this was really fun to watch, thanks!

i also think for a real coderporno-demo like this, it's just the right way to have it in the old press-space-style.

Great stuff, especially the scrollers. The only aber is the space-dependent loader, obviously, but the rest is top notch.

Scamp: Sorry, but that doesn't seem like a very qualified statement, especially not one month after the release of Sharp.

The overall presentation is quite weak actually (gfx, music) and not up to the standards. Some ace effects though.

mega! demo :)
rulez added on the 2007-08-13 16:34:32 by dq dq
a couple of really fresh effects like the scrollers, and some nice gfx but the presentation could have been better. still, a very nice suprise
rulez added on the 2007-08-13 16:46:46 by hollowman hollowman
VIDEO PLS !
yeah video!
krill: i guess my request for a menu "front-end" is related more to genral presentation rather than necessity. but clearly this demo is not really focussed on that - so LOAD "*",0,1 it is. :) I'd love to see Mad's next c64 demo polished on ALL fronts, his code definitely deserves it.

video for c64 prods isn't necessary.. You don't need any roms and if you just download vice and use it as default tool for opening d64 files you can just double click the demos in windows and they load and run.. too easy. easier than a video even..

Gotta love the perspective-scroller and the shading in the last part. The rest was also nice, but nothing mindblowing. And a bit more design and flow wouldn't have hurt either :)

Some ridiculous code right there ;). Also, quite stylish but no efforts at all to create a flow. I hate how everything is disrupted between parts all the times. Still, very good looking and some seriously wicked routines ;).
rulez added on the 2009-06-11 18:14:27 by elfan elfan
yes some routines are foolish (atleast improvable) one routine (the stars) can one run in the first frame i had a wrong frame delay implemented.. its only one instruction but that makes a difference.. do you really ment foolish if you say ridiculous since most routines compete atleast a little good all the way along..

Would've been really awesome in a tighter more concise package, many cool individual parts rock but it doesn't hold together at all. Certainly still a nice touch, not really your average c64 demo.
