nice candela demo, cheesy music at time but it can be overlooked

seconding the kkapture request since i think i have a few glitches

Nice, feels just like Fair Play to the Queen Pt.2, be cool to see something different from these guys, but then again why break a winning formula :)

Really good. Great graphics, music, design, effects and it even has a SR reference. One of my favorite prods from this year.
rulezadded on the 2009-05-26 19:28:16 by noby noby
the shading was flickery, the framerate jittered, and overall it looks like a very forced sequel to Fair Play - sure, some nice stuff, but... it ended when it started to become fun. :(

seems like an unfinished sequel to fair play with some ideas taken from ironman :P needs way more coolness of its predecessor though.

It glitches at least on my graphics card and I didn't like the DOF, but it's still a nice release.
rulezadded on the 2009-05-26 21:03:56 by chock chock
At first try there was no sound and I had to kill the process to exit. I was luckier the second time around, but there are still a lot of graphical glitches.

Still a fair demo, a bit random though.
Fucking rocks again! The return of the ROBO was a nice idea aswell as his new adventures :)

This is a REAL demo! <hint, hint>

I really like the visuals .. specially the intro and transition to "demo"... but I can't help to feel that _everything_ in this demo is just animated thru a editor rather than SOME effects being coded... and it's the size that does that.

But I still like it and to top it off it works in wine :-)

Awesome! Teetow's music is nice as always and it's also nice to see the robot again. :D The lines in the first scene are a bit thin (looks bad without FSAA), but that's just a minor drawback. The rest of this demo is really fresh and nice. :)

First of all, I hate how large some demos are getting. I didn't feel like this was even close to 46.7 megs of content.

The content, however, was very good. Great transitions, fitting music, and I'm a sucker for hexagons ;) . Next time make more resolutions for such a solid prod!!

rulezadded on the 2009-10-09 23:58:58 by SaphirJD SaphirJD
Nice demo, but really a bitch to kkapture ;)
[For those why try and fail: Don't kkapture launcher.exe, that won't work. Instead, run code.dll directly with parameters like "-w 1280 -h 720 -win", or "-f" instead of "-win" if you like, and hope it doesn't hang (it did here a few times). Also, some of the generated .avi files had corrupt sound, so you might need to mux the sound from the original data file, too ...]

rulezadded on the 2009-10-11 19:45:24 by Raven^NCE Raven^NCE
Good point about capturing code.dll, but sadly I'm still not able to get it :-/
added on the 2009-11-02 05:03:32 by trixter trixter
trixter: here are my steps to success, in a little more detail:
- kkapture code.dll with parameters like "-w 1280 -h 720 -f" (the parameters are *required*)
- make sure that your screen can actually display the selected resolution, otherwise you get black bars. I know this shouldn't happen with kkapture, since it reads directly from the OpenGL backbuffer, but for some weird reason, in this demo, screen size *does* matter.
- don't capture the sound, it will be broken for all but the first .avi file anyway
- hope the demo doesn't hang (I tried it at least three times before it run to the end)
- if the demo doesn't quit, wait a few minutes and then kill it using the Task Manager (Esc didn't work for me)
- now you should have a bunch of .avi files. The last one is probably broken, but the second-to-last one should end with a few hundred black frames anyway (that's why I said "wait a few minutes before killing the program")
- you need to sync the sound from the original .wv file (it's packed with WavPack, a free decompressor exists)
This approach worked for me (you can see the result at capped.tv), so I just hope it works for you, too.
