is the precalc supposed to take like five minutes
added on the 2008-12-30 04:01:03 by Confused Confused
precalc: 30-40 seconds ... music! only on singlecore-CPUs tho !

ATI: we tested,worked fine !
needs ps2 only and the shaders are kept easy,nothing that should make it difficult on ATIs...
so i´m sorry, but all testing-machines gave a normal-working experience!

Music precalcs (black screen), background pops up and that's it. So it's more like it stops (but can be exited). I don't think it's graphics driver related, music doesn't start either.

I tested the exe files for Single Core PCs - none of them worked. I didn't even see a black screen or heard music as some of the people who posted before me did.
added on the 2008-12-30 20:18:38 by Adok Adok
singlecore.exes need 30-40 seconds music-precalculation.
the name comes from the music which is named "Belgium Summer", just like 12c4 incidentally called the intro.

if this is "belgian summer" i want to see how the belgian winter is :) the only thing i didn't like was the background - 100% causes eye cancer!

Music wasn't bad, I hated the pastel colors and I found alot of it to be quite ugly...lots of good content though, it's worth a thumb

As a belgian, i can only approve of this message
rulezadded on the 2008-12-31 12:55:34 by franky-- franky--
Argh, the last scene was totally eyefisting. Music was quite nice, though everything else was a bit washed and way too abstract. The only thing that wasn't abstract; the cube-disc-cylinder thingy, reminded me of receptor. So, despite all, it's a great effort, and it is worth a thumb like Ferris said.

Music and cylinderball were okay.
Rotating standard-primitives is by far the most boring and worn out stuff you can come up with.

I was determined to piggify this based on the screenshot. But thumb up for the music. Although I still don't like the colors, and even 4k intros are no excuse for x*y textures.
rulezadded on the 2009-01-02 22:00:02 by Calexico Calexico
I actually quite like this, somewhat simple but still interesting effects and great music. I am not too sure what to think of that keftales background though, would have probably worked better without. Still a solid thumb up mainly because of the music.
rulezadded on the 2009-01-02 22:28:22 by StingRay StingRay
textures? none involved, just the one i fill with the keftale.

this is probably the first prod to use multicore- props. and one of the few 4ks that run for me.

praetor_alpha: Perhaps the first 4k - at least my Breakpoint '08 demo ("Regus Ademordna") used multicore before this. I'm sure there's other earlier examples as well.

I appreciate technical effort but guys... THOSE COLORS!! My eyes nearly popped out. :) And what rarefluid said. Tunnel scene was indeed quite nice and I liked the music very much. Still a piggy because of my eyebleed. :P
added on the 2009-01-04 22:16:57 by masterm masterm
i had them different but some ppl meant its too bright all in all...should have stayed with my opinion of colors there maybe. too late :)
all the color-information is generated like this btw:


where "l" is the color, "i.e" are the normals, j is the object-position and "c" is the time.

so you see i had to experiment and had to make compromisses...but it´s very few bytes in the end :)

Some visuals parts are qutie nice (tunnel effect for example), others seem a bit too random/confusing but together with the great soundtrack, its a cool 4k!

Made a Youtube on my HD channel as you wish :D
