I don't know what to think. Good demo, some blocky stuff in the beginning, and very gloomy for an invitation. Kind of cool I guess.
scamp: You got me there ;)

Since I have a rather slow (but yet somehow cool !) GPU (NVidia 8500gt, passively cooled) I usually watch the video versions. (..and pouet rly could use some tags to identify which CPU/GPU class you need to run a PC demo..)

why are you against shareholders? because they are often lame ordinary workers that get their pensions raped by big bank men and directors?

I side with Amy Diamond on this one. Saying shareholders are all 100% evil might go a step to far.

I agree with the other wussies who said that the style might be a bit too hard for an invite. But judged as a demo it's quite good, except for the 3D font in the beginning which reminded me of someone playing around with 3D Studio Max for the first time back in the '90s :P

uncle-x: swapped from catalyst to omega and it works fine now. Seems omega downgraded a few files, must be some bugs in new catalyst drivers. Thanks for the tip.

A very interesting invitro. Love the hand slowly coming from behind earth. Hellish depressing message, but I cant disagree with it.

horse renoir: This isn't a political discussion thread, feel free to create one on the bbs. But I'll tell you this: If you think the topic is fad, have a trip to russia where currently a anti-riot army of 2,5 Million soldiers is set up, have a trip to UK where these days each and every step you do is watched, or have a trip to one of the various EU countries that right now are going bankrupt, or visit one of the tons of countries where Internet access now is getting censored and anti-childporn-filtering-lists quickly got extended to no-criticsm-of-the-leading-political-force-filters. Of course it's a party theme, and we are making fun of the world going nuts, and by no means we wish to depress anyone, but the whole topic at hand sure is worth a serious thought, too.

: This isn't a political discussion thread, feel free to create one on the bbs.

that's right - was commenting well within the confines of this particular production's context.

But I'll tell you this: <zip>. Of course it's a party theme, and we are making fun of the world going nuts, and by no means we wish to depress anyone, but the whole topic at hand sure is worth a serious thought, too.

thanks for getting me up to speed! but as you already put it, you're making fun of it. and it's not funny.

and those graphics most certainly aren't funny, my eyes are bleeding.

(ok, enough now, i love mfx too much to persist being so harsh)
added on the 2009-02-23 12:40:48 by superplek superplek
I'm torn with it, but I don't really like it. First of all, I hoped they would stick to the Brokepoint theme for the party, since I thought that was very clever. Too bad. The prod itself isn't my cup of tea at all since i don't really like dnb-epilepsy prods. :) But the screenshot scene and the credits/identifying-scene were fucking brilliant.

- verdana
- radial blur
- rgb-distortion
- flash screen on hihat
- hollow "political message"
- generally depressing and totally turns me off from any party mood. (i understand the sentiment but apart from "disobey", where's the resistance-sentiment?)

what you saw here is basically the simulaatio inv recycled probably in a weekend or so, without the charm. if this would be any other group inviting to any other party, it would get torn into shreds, but apparently there's a crisis so we have to cheer for cheapo budget stuff.

i wonder if "innovation is cancer" was meant literally.

Soundtrack is great. Technically a good demo. But it doesnt imho feel like an invitation. I dont like the message of the demo. I really liked Ultimatum to the world because i could in some way identify with the situation. Sorry guys I really like your work. But i cant stand the 23, Brazil, 1984, this whole conspiracy thingy anymore. Life is good. Sorry but heres my thumb down.

Great demo ! :)

The analogy with 1984 was perfect ! - and also agreeing partly with what Scamp said earlier on.

We're under a lot of suspicion here in the UK with having all the cameras around - when ideally, the authorities should be concentrating on muslims ...

the official host of Breakpoint is Computerman GmbH, which is a for-profit company, so we need to write invoices and deduct taxes for the supporter tickets and all other sponsorings.

Please don't confuse the official party info (which is quite clearly marked) with messages from mfx.

And it's just my personal opinion, but i think the party theme kicks ass. Yeah, i'm a sucker for all conspiracy theories, dystopian stuff etc but that doesn't mean that it's all fiction. I'm reading from news that Orwellian stuff is happening all around, but people don't seem to care because they are afraid of terrorism or something. And that's just the stuff that is covered in the news, so don't get me started :)

But enough politics already, it's just a party theme, relax.

Was disappointed by this one.
The opening scene is very 95. That font looks like Windows XP's 3D scroll screensaver? Might be some kind of irony, I just don't get...

The track did not blow me away. I'm pretty tired of high energy tracks like this one... not that there's anything wrong with it, seen from the technical side of things - but the scene is just flooded with this kind of tracks. Sorry! :-/

The invitro with the scene spirits gone missing (the one for BP06) was in a different league, simply put.

But ok, I guess MFX had to work fast after the BP orgas realized that BP was actually going to happen again this year, so a small thumbs up for that effort. But sadly not enough to rise above mediocrity...
i like it.

Great Invitation!

One year ago, i thumbed down this demo cos its political statement (which i considered as too conventionnal and unrisky - at least in Europe) upset me.

(Now, i'm sorry for that: althought i didn't really change my mind, this demo didn't deserve a thumb down.)

Anyway, i completely fell i love with this one!

Amazing flow, great visual, kicking music... and catching the wind of the moment.

Not too fond of the temporal lobe epilepsy inducing flashes, but overall pretty good, and a solid soundtrack! Actually the first drum&bass tune I heard in a demo that doesn't sound like it was made in 1994. (But I haven't come across that many demos with d&b soundtracks yet, so I'm not sure how much that means.)

kinda fresh, wish to see more demos of this kind of complexity and dynamism

even better after the party.
I like it very much, great music and really interesting concept, good work mfx.

I was unsure about whether I liked the music the first time around - the theme was always great, though.

After having watched it a few times, I notice the music kind of grows on you (perhaps this is related to the jingles played at Breakpoint) - and now I can't stop watching it every so often.

Well done, not your standard effects demo. It really helped set the party theme - like I've seen no invitation do before.

The demo spirit is out here.

thumb for the music.

I was hesitant to comment this invitation earlier. First it felt like a big mistake what comes to the theme and overall vibes. Party invitations should be happy-happy joy-joy, right?

However during Breakpoint this thing did grow on me. The soundtrack (also in jingle form, played repeatedly during the Easter weekend) kicks in major time, and the theme doesn't feel all that dark anymore after the full party experience.

Meh, don't like. Especially not the visuals.

Watching this demo again now. It's one of my favourite demos of all time. It gives the feelings of underground, hax0r and anarchy. The soundtrack kicks major ass! And the hand on the planet. Oh.. my.. God.. YUUUUMMIE!

Absolutely wonderful. Hadn't seen it untill now. Probably because I'm stuck with ancient hardware. Good thing there was a video cap of it.

I like this one even more after listening 1984 as an audiobook. Also, is that timewave zero I see?
And remember folks:
Peace is war. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is power. Big Brother is watching you.
Watching it again. Haha.. well, it gets better and better, definately top5 ever to me. The pace, timing, message and music makes this a top notch production. I fucking love it! :)

Nice observation baah, timewave zero. Been reading Terence Mckenna lately.

Watch it, understand it, looooove it!
