Some nice effects :)

A little slow pace, but I guess that the music didn't allow much more.

Great intro. I didn't like the distortion in the snare drum, but otherwise a really great synth. Ran really smooth in 1920x1080 - but something smells burned I think :-).

Can someone make a video? I can't run this on any computer anymore :/
added on the 2013-05-12 14:46:42 by noby noby
Ahh now it seems to run, thank you ethereal void (or a driver update)!

A lot of it is very primitive, some parts a bit garish, and there are some annoying details, but... there's a lot more emotion and honesty baked into these simple oscillators and geometric shapes than your average demoscene production, let a one a 4k.

Video please.

Any solutions for getting this to run on Windows 10 / modern hardware? I've been told not to make threads on the BBS about troubleshooting. :x
added on the 2017-07-12 15:56:53 by MagikGimp MagikGimp
umrubbable here on win10 with 1080. does make a go of it -- nice tune and whitescreen of unhappy shadercompiler.
added on the 2017-07-13 21:38:16 by Fell Fell
If at first you don't succeed...
1) A lot of 4k demos from this era (and possibly beyond) use Crinkler to remove unnecessary stuff from the executable to get them down to this size but Windows 10 looks for other things previous versions of Windows did not so we need to 'uncompress' these files so they run on modern hardware.
Quote:
Recompress the 4k with Crinkler 1.4 or better (http://www.crinkler.net/). Command line is: "crinkler.exe /recompress demo-name.exe".
(thanks ramon)
Don’t run Crinkler in a system folder (Program Files etc.) or in the demo’s folder unless you don’t mind losing the original file you’re working on as it’s overwritten, unless you specify otherwise in the parameters (see manual).
2) To keep things small, 4k demos seem to look for whatever version of DirectX/3D was around at the time so demos either won’t run at all (in the case of solitude) or you’ll get a basic error message mentioning the version the demo’s looking for e.g. “d3dx10_33”. Your modern OS has the undreamt-of at the time DirectX 12 already installed which is little problem for most old games but no good for demos. To solve this, download and install the DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer here. This basically gives you every old version of DirectX’s system files for compatibility. It’s an old trick. Whatever you do, don’t go downloading random .dlls from random websites. You just can’t trust ‘em.
3) The last thing to do is to run the Compatibility Troubleshooter on your new exe. Right click and it’s under Run as Administrator. Once it’s done its thing, clicking Test will run the demo. It’ll decrunch things for a while but should work so don’t be put off by the wait; there’s a lot of work for your computer to do now you’ve done some. You can then save those settings for next time (and tell Microsoft about it while you're at it).
And if all that doesn't work, perhaps it just won’t run on your AMD hardware? I dunno. I don’t have anything AMD that works beyond DirectX 9, sorry!
