Damn, my screenshot is a bit fucked up :( Anyway, second file is at ftp://ftp.amigascne.org/pub/amiga/groups/k/kefrens/kefrens-megademoviii-b.dms.

A classic demo. Fantastic parts amongst some more average parts.

What, I haven't commented this yet? Extremely great demo, especially the parts by Metallion, Promax and Icronite/Milkshake. And by the way, contrary to popular belief there ARE 8 Kefrens Megademos. The first two were made under their old name "The Starlight Project" though..

I watched it so many times in the early 90's.
Maybe I should watch it once more!

actually i never understood why this demo was always ranked so high
the routines in this demo where quite unoptimized and already better seen in other demos before that one

I loved the tune by Nightlight in the Kill Victor demo on Disk 2... What no disk 2? OK Have posted a url to fix me, beautiful.

tmb: Promax's 3D kicked ass back then, I remember we liked it so much that it even decided Starlion to start working seriously on our 3D routs for months on Atari.

Moreover the demo was just ubercool imo (along with some of its mods) ;)

Rocks.

A legendary megademo. Promax's 3D was just totally amazing back then.

One of my favorite on this platform
rulez added on the 2007-01-05 21:35:43 by Pulsar Pulsar
SAUCE: Interactvity(!), the music to the Roller demo (mod.fletch), ultrawhack scrollers and best use of sprite snakes evah!!

SHITZ: ugly art, but at least better than ****

VERDICT:
(music kicks ass and topples dominoes)

my fav kefrens megademo

Some very nice parts accompanied by some ugly/average parts. And the 3d routines were pretty fast for that time. I wonder how TMB found out that the code is unoptimized... Anyway, thumb goes up. :)

Sorry, but I can't see anything special here, and to me, the demos are quite boring.

Hey where's my vote. Absolutely one of the best ever.
rulez added on the 2010-12-07 18:37:44 by leGend leGend
Megademo 7 was really good, Megademo 8 is a total masterpiece ! A lot of good demo inside it (And Kill victor from Promax wow... It was the first time I see overscan fullscreen full framerate flat 3D)

If you need to see only one demo from 1990 you can watch this one because it contains mostly all classics fx from that time !

Promax' code was fantastic. i remember copying his linedraw to fix the line length issue, and I think I kept using it for years. Also, at the party this was released, (and my first party ever) I officially became a member of Kefrens, but after 30 minutes they changed their mind and didn't let me in after all (I think because I wanted to finish my other demo for Static Bytes, I'm not sure). Ah, fun times.

That is an amazing tune

First glenz, Seven Sins-beating convex spaceships, and Harold Faltermeyer music... what more could you want?? Kefrens had made some nice demos before, and if their previous megademos weren't top notch, this megademo now placed them firmly in the top league :)

yep, some good stuff in this one.

Contains lots of classic stuff, particularly Nightlight's Dirt song http://modarchive.org/module.php?38520

Trying to let the fact sink in that this is called "Megademo 8"...
