I found myself thinkning "it's nice but they need a few more effects" then I remembered that it's a 4k ;). Very nice landscapes, but the music is so-so. 4k's sure has developed a bit since last year (even though I still think Atrium holds up well compared to this one - it has more action, better music and more variation compared to Elevated). Still, definitely a thumb up. I'm sure had I seen it at BP I wouldn't had anything but positive remarks ;D.

The soundtrack is really immense at the beginning. Too bad it's soon ruined by the usual sounds that remind you that this is, after all, an intro.

However, the INSANELY amazing visuals more than make up for the soundtrack.

The fact that it comes in at just 4k, has decent music and runs smoothly on my PC....well, that's something I never thought was possible.

This 4K was dominated the party in its own category and surely a ruling product! It has a very nice tune and very detailed landscapes; I was totally shocked when I saw it first time, triple thumbs up!

Thanks for the soundtrack link...the music is absolutely awesome, gives me a nice Jean Michel Jarre vibe!

Any chance of a lo-lo-lores version of this? It's stated in the readme that this was optimized for 8800gtx and the like...and the performance on a 256mb card is indeed beyond slideshow. The music plays and I get to watch 6 single frames during the whole intro - the rendering of ixaleno was faster :-)

iq, as you wrote, the tune is fantastic. but the visual beams are unsynchronized sometimes with the tune, and they are too simple to be just shown around the sky. what about some waves around snow places? if you have time for some synchronization and for better rendering, please, make final version.

p.s. and someone, please, cut this ugly Decipher's pic inside this page. thank you.

Other than the flashing sky, and one or two camera motions that are a bit too artificial, there are moments in this 4k where I feel like this is actually real. I've never experienced that before in a 4k.... amazing job!

Love how the landscape's texture actually changes at one point in the intro and I'm still wondering whether the water areas had an animated texture on it. Extra kudos for that lovely motion blur.

Amazing resolution and fantastic audio. Sure it's 4k, but I'm way more into productions like receptor, managing to present what seems to be various effects ...

Still - this is without doubt the finest looking shader and the greatest 4k synthesized music there's been so far! :)

This definitely set the bar. Perhaps so high that it's going to take a long while until anyone can even equal, or not to mention surpass Elevated. Technically astounding, visually both realistic and soothing at the same time. Even the soundtrack that felt first bit too cheerful, has grown on me during the time - perhaps Jarresque chord progression has something to do with it...

Long live to the king!

4k? This is a PC Demo. Plus: the release is broken.

First solution to fix it: It requires 3rd party DLL's in the same directory which I don't got with the OS and drivers so it won't run. People don't usually ship their demos without DLL files required to run the demo. Total size: NOT 4k.

Asking users to get 99% of the demo (size-wise) online is LAME.

And also: Requiring me to become administrator to install some DLL is BAD CODE. I'm not doing that. Only lamers and windows users run their OS in administrator mode. A coder that assume their users are lamers is also a LAMER.

As a PC Demo though (with the DLL in the same dir as the exe): HUGE HUGE thumbup.
--
Remember, an intro was supposed to be attached to a cracked game or release, thus not requiring people to download extra DLL's just to be able to see the cracktro. I'd really like to see someone release a cracktro that pops up a dialog "directx_xxx.dll not found", it's simply not happening, ever!

wow!

We don't ask anybody to download any DLL. "DirectX installed" is part of the requirements to run the demo. If you don't have it, you don't fulfill the requirements. As simple as that, we don't ask you to download anything if you don't want, we just ask you to now watch it. However you did install DirectX in the end, apparently it wasn't that painful? Ready to enjoy other demos too now? Welcome to the world of computer graphics.

Also, I don't think it's lame to have rights to install software in your own computer. Wait..., weren't these machines called PERSONAL computers? I really dislike the admin-user-login-password-account-quota-permission and linux sequrity paranoia in general. "Hey personal computer, it's me, ME you know, MEEEE!" That's now a complain to you thou, just a thinking of mine. Anyway, in general I think most demo watchers actually do control their own computer.

Lastly, I'm sorry, but I basically don't give a shit about the crackscene and their rules. Personally I hate creackers and virus hackers and stuff, always using their skills to fuck instead of amaze people with their prods, with 4ks intros. Probably they are not good enough? Anyway, don't call me cracker please.

But hey, thanks for the cdc, although I would ask you to remove it if you still think this is a demo.
added on the 2009-08-25 16:58:46 by iq iq
iq: I'm _totally_ in error here. I falsely assumed that this DLL came with the graphics driver and thus was one of those in the DX sdk (i.e. non-standard stuff). I updated my DirectX and now the intro runs fine.

I'm very sorry, and unfortunately there's no edit function for the thumb.
I won't remove the CDC.

from the "generic tech support answers" LookUpTable:

- try only one monitor in case of dual screen configs
- try newest drivers from your gfx card manufacturer
- make sure a recent version of DirectX is there

can't help much more I think... You can always send me a mail (look in my profile) and we can try to figure out what's failing.

Does anybody remember the MARS.EXE 4k demo from 1993? Well this is like that but a hundred times better! What would blow people away is if Elevated was interactive like MARS.EXE.

Otherwise, I can't believe that this is possible.

The link above to the Windows 7 compatible version is broken (pointing to a dropbox location), but it can also be found in this Archive site: http://www.archive.org/details/TrElevated .

Anyone know why the HQ 1080p version cripples my system in Windows 7 but runs fine under XP?

The standard 1080p version runs great but the HQ version is even nicer.
'elevated' is for 4k, what '.produkt' was for 64k. Only btter.
Given all the restictions, ans things, that needed to be postponed for sake of simplicity and size, the outcome is amazing.

@orange: when it is all about effort, that means a weak output but good background. i hope you've noticed that it's a 4k production. in 4k, this cannot be considered as "a weak output", right? maybe you've missed the "4k" part or you don't care about the size. but no, it's not all about the effort, it's all about so hard to beat, amazing result.

Let me think ...

Q1. How many extra megabytes of libs & other stuff this "4K" needs exactly to be run?

Q2. How this can be in the same cathegory like for example Amiga 4k intros, executed from no startup-sequence/no workbench/no DX libs etc.?

After all ... it doesn't impress me when I think of it's REAL SIZE when watching.

The target platform clearly states "windows", and not PC or Amiga. The way to access graphics hardware in windows is either through OpenGL or DirectX. These guys chose DirectX, so your arguments are invalid, mccnex.

Wait, it's a windows prod using libs that were default for anyone who knew what "GPU" meant when it was released. A 4k in the windows world is just a lot different than on amiga or dos; it still means designing for the size and packing a lot - definitely size coding. (well, maybe a bit less with crinkler around)

Win7 crinkler 1.4 recompressing either the original or the Win7 version now works on Win7 with latest Nvidia drivers (314.22) with the following command line:

"crinkler /crinkler /recompress demofile.exe" where demofile.exe is the elevated demo executable. It will overwrite the original file.

I also needed to run the recompressed file in XP SP3
compatibility mode (if not, crash) and disable aero (if not, black screen with sound only).

No real idea what to add, after all these fine comments - however let me try. This is the go to demo for me when I try to introduce people into the demoscene. At least for the ones I know who understand sizes, so far most of them were blown away - rightfully so.
Even I always check the file size, and still can't believe how such a fucking ace soundtrack can fit together with so stunning visuals into something so very, very tiny.

One of my favourite productions of all time even though I have never been able to get it to run on my machine. The scenery and lighting stands up as high quality even if you don't count the fact that it was made in 4k. Beautiful and also technically impressive. Combine all this with IQ sharing so much and giving so much to the community in tutorials and technical details. Of course not forgetting what Mentor has contributed as well. This is what the demo scene is about.
