Yes, cubic team can do demos too ! that demo is really cool (except the music...), the roller-coaster part is a must-be-seen !

I love rolla' koasta' - but the sound seems a little buggy in the transition between every act
The music was kind of a letdown, but the rollercoaster made me beg for mercy....wow!

This demo have some great parts and effects, like the roller-coaster
added on the 2001-01-01 18:42:17 by reality3D reality3D
Now, if this isn't a "demo", what else?

A plenty of before unseen effects (the rotating-torii thing even made it into NVIDIA's official demos for the GeForce 3 :), thegreat rollercoaster part, the "as if it weren't already enough" rollercoaster with the voxel landscape, everything fast... and even the music, well, nah, Doj is a nice guy, just tolerate it :)

For maximum enjoyment, watch the coaster part(s) 10 feet from a party bigscreen, and get everyone in your row scream and throw their hands in the air :).

You know why I love this demo! Needless to say. Beautifull! Simply Beautifull!!!

.....not so bad.....only one thing is good - the rolla coasta, but this effect was implanted in Switchback demo/by Rebels/ on Amiga many years ago....
Canonball: The roller coaster in Switchback was an animation. This one is realtime. Big difference. :)

A demo with great effects, no design, and a terrible drumloop in the soundtrack.

Very nice demo, especially the rollercoaster part is awesome. The sound was probably one reason because it didn't won.
added on the 2002-01-29 04:43:47 by Crest Crest
although design, colors and music transitions suck badly, it's still one of my alltime favourites. the roller coaster was incredible for its time, they have some pretty creative ideas in there and finally good ol' cubic style with some very funny things. for me a classic.
rulezadded on the 2002-02-14 17:07:28 by styx^hcr styx^hcr
Toasted's rollercoaster was a damn good idea, as novative as the drummer in Jumpy by Digital Murder. True gems in term of creativity imho...
A must see if your machine still supports MsDos =)

I like the last part (roller coaster in space or something). I can get pass the crash if I don't use 'linear' as video mode.

Mmm... toasted!

Damn cool demo from the older days...!!
I really love that one...!!

Man, there should be some 'movement' in the scene to open a 'group' who releases win32-ports of famous good old dos-demos !!!

Otherwise those gems will be lost forever some day when no one will have a chance to install DOS on a nowadys computer anymore... :-((


Keep the scene spirit alive, pals!!
rulezadded on the 2002-09-15 15:55:29 by Weasel Weasel
i hope that the demodvd-group maybe make some oldschool DVD, too. Otherwise those cool demos, and everything with it, will get lost. Yes, keep the scene spirit alive.

Video version wanted !!! (mpeg, vob, mov, divx ...)
haven't commented this one?
This one was a big reason for assembling a DOS box @ home. :)))
Hey, i love that rollercoaster part!! and the design and the stuff... just coool!

This is part of my top 10 BEST demo of all time. It blows me away, and since it was made in 1996, no hardware acceleration, tracked music etc etc and runs fine on an old Pentium 100... Truely is a masterpiece!!
rulezadded on the 2003-03-05 16:35:38 by 33 33
Oh... And for those who complain that the music is not sync'ed, it's because of the refresh rate... It's a bug in the demo, so, either you fix your gear setup, or you stop complaining about his, please ;°)
added on the 2003-03-05 16:41:26 by 33 33
Had totally forgot about this one for years, but now I saw it again. Doesn't really matter to me whether the roller coaster is innovative or not, it's still the best one I've seen in a demo. The only thing that really bothers me is that the credits/greets are laid out poorly.

good for 96! very fast 2d effects
can be launched in dos mode on winMe+GF4 ;)
2d gfxs and textures are very ugly
coasters are cool, specially the lunar wich runs with a voxel land
rulezadded on the 2004-03-22 11:03:53 by keops keops
yeah the rollercoaster...
when i first saw it on the bigscreen, couldn't believe it's full realtime - ofcourse later on a monitor it was quite easy to spot the trick :)

and nice other fx, of course! i'm loving the start-sequence with the colorful tunnel..
rulezadded on the 2004-04-27 13:45:21 by toxie toxie
what's the fake? it's dynamic level of detail!
and the movements of the trains takes even gravity into account, that's why it looks so real.

rulezadded on the 2004-07-31 04:39:25 by loaderror loaderror
This was one of my favorites of all time. Stability, however, was not it's forte... on modern systems the coasters end up sorta just going on forever with the music getting lost in oblivion. Z-Buffering would have REALLY helped on this one though. Still, pretty damn good

How did you get the rollercoaster part to run in DOSBox? When I try, it always crashes just before it (when it's changing songs or something)

Preacher: there were 2 versions of the demo, as far as I remember, the later one is always crashing after collercoaster part, even in pure DOS.

the "version finale" with the ctststfx.zip fix (unzip the XM) works great in dosbox, although there's a brief pause between the video mode changes. amazing how i still get warm fuzzies from the first coaster part, even if this is long before the days of filtering and mipmaps. :) a bigger screen helps.
rulezadded on the 2007-08-21 02:47:58 by phoenix phoenix
One of the best DOS demos, the coaster was the killer in 96. Showed this to some friends back then, they couldn't believe it...

Ah, yes. One of those "money shot" demos, mostly remembered for one particular effect or gimmick. In this case it's the pretty long rollercoaster scene that still looks quite neat. :)

Rewatching this, I was quite surprised how many parts there actually are. Most of them ugly, but still engaging in some way. Even the music is still quite pleasant and much better than in most 1990s DOS demos.
