Due to partyplace-musicmaking, I want to fix it before releasing. The EQ is all over the place, and for some reason, a submix was disabled before doing mixdown. I blame beer (and the boyfights :)

The invite is strong.

I fucking hate the violent crap though. Be nice and don´t make the party feeling drain for others please. Not everyone enjoys to have crazy violent "fucktards" (as nerve said it) around themselves.

Perfectly breaths the andromeda style. Perhaps just a detail, but I loved the small&cute andromeda logo in the loading part! :)

Isn't this more an advertisement than an invitation? :)

Nice way of displaying Ra's 2d graphics btw. (which are awesome as usual)

i find this totally uninspired and exchangable. no greater idea, just a bunch of seemingly random fx scenes, retro references and promo blabla thrown together. this is so not leaving a mark.

sorry gloom, i know it sucks having your work critized : ( , but i'm being sincerly honest. plus i simply think that all this chummy shoulder patting is nothing but a shortcut to mediocrity.
added on the 2009-07-20 18:35:24 by monroe monroe
I expected more from these guys, and to me it was far too slow for what it was showing (other than the last effect). That being said, I really was a fan of the word "Assembly" being assembled :) Still I have to go with a pig on this one.

gloom: if leading demo groups like those who were involved in this prod can't assure a certain level of inspiration, pretensions, coherence & eye for detail - whoever else?

I am getting seriously tired of the rgb-split distortion every second demo tries to "design" with these days. Also the cube stuff felt a bit like leftovers from Stargazer.

But in the end, Andromeda can't fail, so thumbieuppie.
rulez added on the 2009-07-21 00:20:57 by evil evil
+ ra pictures are nice
+ rendering is visually nice
- rgb dist is waaaay overused
- camera jumps ditto
- as a demo it feels incoherent and not very interesting; i watched it two times (on dtv) and failed to find a memorable moment.

piggy, because it did not live up to the expectations.

Don't worry about it - I have nothing against honest critiques. :)

gloom: if leading demo groups like those who were involved in this prod can't assure a certain level of inspiration, pretensions, coherence & eye for detail - whoever else?

I just wish people (most of which, never actually do demos themselves, or of they do, release so infrequently that it hurts), could recognize that not everything released under certain groupnames HAVE to be a fucking monster of a demo, with content and work behind it measuring months and months.

Also, what "shoulder patting"? That one is beyond me. I see much more shoulder patting with way worse looking prods by unknown groups, but then I guess it's called "encouragement", which is ok.

It's the "expected more" that I cannot really stand (or understand). 1) How can anyone expect anything from Excess for example - we're about as consistent in our releases as a cat on dopamine. :) Or Nooon? Which haven't released anything in over a decade?

If this demo was released by "Dead Roman", it would be recieved in a much different way, and that's what bothering me. Labels people, forget about them. I can't find the Kebby or Ryg quote right now, but they said it best when FR got too many "expected more" comments.

Demos are also about having fun, and this demo was both fun to make and fun to watch (IMO) so that's what counts. I cannot understand how something that's both fun AND has over average decent rendering and graphics can be thumbed down alongside random non-important "reasons", but hey - I guess some people have no other way to make themselves heard than to bitch loudmouthed in public foras (present quoted company excluded :)

Lighting is nice.

I ran on a 9600GT. It ran quite slowly (low fps) at 1600x1200 with no multisampling. I was disappointed that it wasn't appreciably faster when I tried it at 1024x768. I wonder why (technically) that is.. since that usually makes a much bigger difference.
rulez added on the 2009-07-21 17:15:10 by bigcheese bigcheese
Oh yeah. The intro scrolly part was nice too -- although the scrolling was choppy (again, I wonder why it was so slow and if it's the same reason). I may have liked to see the demo run with that a little more, since I nearly forgot it was there at all until reading the comments.
added on the 2009-07-21 17:19:22 by bigcheese bigcheese
Hey it's a solid, nice product with good pace, heavy music and a short fine effect at the end. It also satisfied my lust for handdrawn 2D a bit, so no complaints here, may Assembly come!
rulez added on the 2009-07-21 18:19:14 by Paralax Paralax
I second Gloom!

Legendary groups also have to release some nice 'inbetween' stuff..

They cannot release a new 'nexus 7' or 'Debris' or 'lifeforce' demo every month you know.. This is how it alway's has been, also in the 80's and 90's

so keep up the good work and spirit the all of you!

On ATI 3870 X2, win7 x64: parallax scroll up the picture at the beginning doesn't work. All I see is a blue shadow of the 'loading' cube up the center of the screen where the image should be, with white bars either side.

Also the particles and flares appear to be missing from the first light balls scene. A credit to you that I didn't notice these things first time.
Good job

My complaint is the short duration of the invtro.. It ended just as I was getting into it..

Doesn't work on my laptop, but from what I remember from the compo, this was quite decent stuff with some neat real time lighting.

I second gloom in the above debate. It shouldn't be necessary for a group to release something that tops all of their previous releases to get creds for releasing it. Compared to most of the stuff released these days - this is pretty kickass after all.

As a member of a demogroup that attempts to stay active and productive today i know how much work and sweat it takes to create something that pushes the bar in all areas - music, code, graphics, direction, nudity and violence. These guys certainly lifted the bar in some, though not all, of the above disciplines at Solskogen this year. And for that, here is a thumb.

...and yeah, what they lacked on the big screen they compensated for with leather belts. So i guess its one of those you-had-to-be-there prods :P

This is way beyond anything I had expected from a solskogen production. Thumbs up.

What i saw on demoscene.tv is VERY well designed and deserves a thumb up. But i won't even try to launch it on my 3 years old PC...

Hi, and thanks for the feedback so far.

For some of those who experienced crashes: I forgot to check for hardware support at startup, so the crash labelled "Error: D3DERR_INVALIDCALL RTHandler.cpp 59" means your gfx card does not support the correct rendertarget format. (as smash said) There are some more worrying bugs, and I will try to fix those now that me head is clearer.

Happy duck hunting!

I do love the lightball thingies, and the sand-morphing-thing towards the end is brilliant.

Ra images are cool. Last effect is cool too.

I'm sure technically is amazing, but visually is not :( Piggy.

One of my favourite prods is Elemental Square Garden, which is short, simple, done in few days, and not even realtime! It doesn't have to have tons of time invested in it, it just needs style and good execution, which this one is lacking.

The only good thing is the main picture, and that's only after it was linked here so it can be seen separately in it's full glory.

i agree with the general consensus that it comes across a bit 'hollow' (and hi regus ademordna as for the lightballs-in-tunnel thing) but still it's design is tight and it looks good.

Now, this is what an invitation is supposed to look like! A lot of improved volumetric effects, which gave me that "Andromeda" feeling from "Nexus 7". You guys did well and make more of this. Oh yes, the music simply rock!

Apart from the beginning scenes, much of it looked like recycled effects and concepts from earlier Excess demos. But not bad at all as a whole, so piggy this time.

Nice attitude, bro!
Oh well, give these guys a break. It's the same situation Farbrausch experienced some years ago: every single goddamn production is now expected to be better than the last one/groundbreaking/a life altering experience. A lot of people seemed to expect this one to be something like "Stargazer 2" or "Regus 2"...

I thought this was decent. Some nice light/shadow-effects (though the "lightballs in tunnel" are really, REALLY getting old) and good use of typography (only Navis seemed to notice). The particle effect looked great but was too short. Gloom's track is capable, though not as memorable as other stuff I've heard from him (e.g. Evoid Droid, Stargazer). 2D art was excellent!

All in all a solid production and a well deserved thumb.

thanks you liked mostly our work and for the others :
Don't stop ! Don't give us a break !
It's not the same situation as Freuiabrash,
it's an invitation with an excess-effect (to greet gloom) ,
with 2 cubes at begining ( it's hyde and andersson ( the tall one is Andersson),
with an andromeda wood logo hidden in the main picture to greet Archmage...
with more cubes like pixels ( thanks hyde for this great effect )...
with a TRuCk to greet ...
and the final tunnel..
a greet for you!

see ya soon

I'm going to thumb my early birthday present from some friends up, because it's freaking awesome to have friends who just do shit like draw pictures of you for the hell of it.

And if you don't like that I don't give a shit (:
Just to add to Ra's list: the sample in the beginning of the track is from a cellphone recording of the 64k intro compo at Assembly 2006. Most of you will therefore recognize who it is a nod to, and who it is a slight, Excess-like, kick in the arse to. :)
