Good stuff, nice effects.
rulezadded on the 2008-03-24 01:44:38 by zefyros zefyros
Effects-laden as always, and nicer text this time. Good work.
rulezadded on the 2008-03-24 01:53:44 by Insectecutor Insectecutor
nice effects. dislike a bit the colors/texturing on the face & the animation scale looks bugged..
rulezadded on the 2008-03-24 01:56:40 by skarab skarab
Oh and it appears bugged on ATI (x1900), for instance texture on tentacle-head is missing.
one of the many fine prods at BP08.
tentacle-head bug also on x1600 mobility.

There were only a small handful of demos that stood out to me this year and this one was one of them :)

Very nice visual, I love the lighting and glass balls. But the greets made me dizzy... Ribbons = automatic BB Image
rulezadded on the 2008-03-24 06:47:40 by artanis artanis
Very very good looking.
rulezadded on the 2008-03-24 08:09:11 by Manwe Manwe
this looked great on the stream but maybe 1/3rd of shaders not working on x1950 (feb 2008 drivers)
added on the 2008-03-24 08:19:38 by auld auld
The shader in the screenshot saved the piggy
Nice music, but overall just OK.

that was pretty nice :)

There are parts of this production that made me totally go wow - the opening waterfall, the screenshot scene - then there are others that kind of ruin it. That face model did NOT look good. With a little more direction, this coulda been a lot better, but it's still clearly on the thumb up side. Looking forward to further productions.

Solid demo with nice design and effects, very newskool to me.

I really liked this prod, shorter than the other ones, but that just gave it a really good flow. This is the way to go ;)

codewise(smooth like silk on my not-so-fashion hardware), but lacks of mature design

Only place 8 ? Should be placed higher ... much higher !

very good one.
rulezadded on the 2008-03-24 16:37:17 by can can
Some lovely and original effects, and runs fast on my shitty hardware too.
Lacking that little something (overall design?) to make it truely memorable though.
rulezadded on the 2008-03-24 16:43:03 by nagato^ nagato^
Very good. I especially liked the soundtrack in this one.

butt ugly design mixed with beautiful design - what's up with that? the effect in the screenshot rocks.
rulezadded on the 2008-03-24 19:57:43 by prm prm
very cool, should have ranked higher

Some cool, smooth and nice effects here

rulezadded on the 2008-03-24 23:02:36 by seppjo seppjo
The effect in the screenshot made me go "HELL YEAH!" but the rest was so-so. Still, more than good enough for a rulez. :)
rulezadded on the 2008-03-24 23:43:40 by gloom gloom
The ending effect was sweet like candy! well deserved thumb up
rulezadded on the 2008-03-25 04:14:04 by aMUSiC aMUSiC
nice! needs some polishing here and there though.
rulezadded on the 2008-03-25 11:00:30 by fragment fragment
like always with adapt: couple good effects that dont quite go the whole mile by some reason or another.
added on the 2008-03-25 13:14:37 by psenough psenough
some fine scenes here. unfortunately looks quite crippled on my x1600 (like 15bit or sthg).

Littlebit inconsistent but best from Adapt! The endpart is amazing! (Theres snow at the background ;) ) Deserved a higher place in the competition.

AUTHOR comment:
I'll promise to do some sort of final possibly including at least the RADEON FIX.
I'll just have to lower my old radeon 9600 pro from the golden pillow above my bed first.

So underrated! Maybe a little short and uneventful, but definitely one of the better ambient releases. The waterfall effect is very nice!
rulezadded on the 2008-03-26 16:35:07 by Wade Wade
some beautiful scenes, he waterfall of sparks is definitely the highlight

Some cool stuff! Apart from the face, most stuff looked really sweet. So, yes, a 'rulez' for you.
rulezadded on the 2008-03-26 17:09:25 by sagacity sagacity
really, really good stuff in there

some nice scenes in here
rulezadded on the 2008-03-28 12:09:54 by keito keito
Excellent effects and transitions. Very good music. Great demo.
rulezadded on the 2008-03-29 00:11:57 by paranoid paranoid
I like that mega screaming guy actually. Waterfall and spheres are nice too, but I think the spheres would look better if you could reduce the aliasing effect.

Music was cool except for the piano sequence. I just have this thing against pianos couple with electronic instruments. :P
rulezadded on the 2008-03-29 00:31:31 by loaderror loaderror
Nice - except for the face. :)
rulezadded on the 2008-04-02 22:54:45 by Mystra Mystra
the mini-ASD does it again :)
rulezadded on the 2008-04-02 23:14:19 by Gargaj Gargaj
and another video. not 720p, since the demo doesn't seem to render at full resolution in 720p anyway for some reason. grab it here: ftp://ftp.untergrund.net/users/ryg/concentrate_h264.mp4

still waiting for the unbiassed justice to be made by giving "best effects" award for any production by adapt.
Design has is still the usual adapt stuff... could and should be done better :D
rulezadded on the 2008-04-13 19:24:16 by waffle waffle
Total pure awesomeness.
rulezcdcadded on the 2008-04-13 19:52:06 by Preacher Preacher
quite energetic coolness and great ´subtext´ message.
agree with loaderror => too high antialiasing factor on the spheres.

music nice. balls ok. the rest not my cup of tea.

Really cool ideas and effects. Too bad the tune ruins it for me. Still deserves a thumb up, despite the headache your greetings part gave me !

I forgot to thumb up this one.
I really liked it : nice design, nice music, a lot of good ideas.
I didn't like : the face models, the font.

Looking forward the next adapt prod !

I really like this one, it sorta drowned among the many good entries when I watched the BP stream.

I'm not sure if we've been watching the same demo. I thought it was quite mediocre and probably unfinished at places. Bu then again, I am some kind of crazed perfectionist, I either accept perfectly perfect or perfectly rubbish. So on that basis my opinion should probably be ignored :D
added on the 2009-02-03 19:57:00 by apricot apricot
Beautiful. And I liked the music too.
rulezadded on the 2009-04-12 08:58:08 by mic mic
Really cool demo. The deforming heads are a bit... weird, but very nice demo nonetheless.

Soothing, the greets part still makes me dizzy :D

Very nice. I didn't like the heads, but the rest is cool and moody. Nice greetings too.
