HELL YES! A little slow on my rubbish gfx card but that's lifted my mood after a crap day at work. It shows you don't need cheap self-compiling tricks to do small intros on Linux. Anyway... YES! More small intros on Linux, long may it continue!

Piggy until I've booted into Linux... Fails on Vista 32-bit.

Windows version worked fine on my R 3870. But not very fast. :)

Works fine and fast on my Vista 32bit with an ATI 4850

The mountains were decidedly average, but there's water at the bottom and some pretty sweet looking cloud layer for 1k so thumb goes north.

thumb for chosing linux - the prod itself is okayish
rulezadded on the 2008-11-06 08:12:58 by mueslee mueslee
Somethings odd. The video is nice and smooth hills. However, the windows port isnt smooth - like you are only ray marching, not root solving in the port. Any ideas? Also incredibly slow.

The video looks great - but on my Dual Core with GF 8600 GT it is awfully slow ?! :-(

I watched exe, under Linux some psalms about floating point.


Coded in two days ! - very bad.

Why "moutains"?

Quite slow here as well (GF6800GT).

Fast msg : I know, it's too slow ... I have found a really good optimisation for it ;) I will update the archives tomorrow.

I wanted to love this demo, I really, truly did.

But after seeing how AWFULLY the Windows port runs (it didn't)... Ugh. I understand the prod was intended for Linux, but... :/
I'll give it another shot for sure if there's an improved Win32 port, however...

Not bad, buy choppy on my old GeForce 7950 GT KO video card. :(

Yes, quite slow...but for ray marching this is very very good, especially the reflection layer. Fantastic 1k.
