Hmm, I thought this was released at tp3, not tp4?

Anyway, a nice (and long) demo at the time, quirky in a genuinely french way, partly due to the odd music by Moog and Shad if I remember correctly (Shad did the excellent music for the most excellent Square some years later).
The code was pretty good and had variety, and I think this demo introduced Barti, who of course went on to join NoooN and become the #1 coder in the pc scene :)

Oopsorry, i've mistaken TP3&4.
This demo is one of my alltimes favourite, it prefigures the french domination over the scene in the 90's ^__^

Hey, I have succeded running it with my 386! (It seems it wasn't a bad idea afteralls to find old computer parts from garbage and put my old 2/3/486s to work!)

Guys from Nooon was in that! A lot of cool oldschool parts and great music in that! Lovely :)

yep I remember this one, it was really good. Especially the 3D engine as the huge vector world with all the moving objects shows it, iirc.

Thanks to dosbox I could re-view it now after many years. Still a very pleasing demo with good ideas!

Great oldskool demo, I especially like the last part after the 3d vector world. And it's good to see that the end scroller works again on dosbox (when I upgraded from a 486 to a Pentium the demo wouldn't run the endscroller anymore for some reason)

a sentimental classic (especially for the french scene, i'm sure).. lots of effects and music. even the colorful vectoballs still look good. the tunes are demo-rock/pop with a weird french twist, courtesy of shad and moog. you can get the ripped mods here, and there's more to them than what you hear in the demo. the talent from cardiac went on to nooon, live!, and other groups.

this demo' real worth was not realized :(

It was like watching second reality again and it being a lot more chaotic. Well music was in some parts fine and the demo had gougar shading.

Wow, nice one! I loved many thing and especially enjoyed the flyby, done so fucking right. Can't resist to old school tridi like this.
Also Lot of Barti's stuffs here ;)
A must see!!

Not a good demo...

for those that encounter a bug, looking at the information pages allow to see the whole demo in dosbox. there is a memory leak in this demo that make crashe the demo in the middle.

is it real to watch a whole demo in pure dos on pentium or higher? :) (yes, it freezes after vectorballs part)
anyway, i like gouraud and slime vectorz and MUSIC! damn it rocks :)

Very very mediocre demo but still slightly above average for its time, there is a lot worse out there...

hah, just tried on mobo with VIA chipset (the previous has Intel 430TX) and it works fine...almost (i still can't see final scroller), don't know why :)

Good effects for its time. A bit chaotic and some ugly stuff in there, but overall a good long demo. Weak thumb up.
