Thumb!

Yeeess! Amazing visuals!!!

Lots of content and niceness in it, but somehow "nice" is what it makes me feel and not in a good way. I would want to thumb up the volcano part, but something prevents me. A flyby this long should really have more soul in it.

Excellent modelling and a really great 3d engine. The textures went from ok to bad, but the scenes still managed to look very impressive.

Very impressive visuals and nice lighting.

Piggy. Worse demo in the compo IMHO. Just a lot of nothing after a huge loading. Everything looks the same, with that oldschool bumbmapping, the soundtrack is boring... and nothing really happens. Just a few disconnected scenes.

ASD-ish once again, though this time around it was done right, or at least better. It was a lot more coherent and looked a lot better. Even the music was enjoyable.

a bit boring 3d flyby with jerky camera moves. Still needs heavy polishing and better music for my thumb up
ok demo

Looks and sounds nice enough but this just went on before my eyes on the stream and i really didn't even notice when it ended.

Some constructive criticism:

+ great engine, good performance
+ nice textures and 3d scenes
+ better concept than in your last Assembly demo

- Too many ideas lifted from other demos (e.g. "The Fulcrum", "Claudia") or movies ("Stargate")
- Music wasn't really special
- The abstract scenes (wormhole, blue lightnings) looked rather dull

All in all I have to say that I enjoyed the demo and it's a solid thumb up...

very nice effects. but some parts needs to get a little bir more polished.

Good basis materials, perhaps require more work to get the whole stand together in a more consistant way.

Very good lighting and mood, but the music was underwhelming and there was no real feel to it, except for "shiny" and "dark".
rulez added on the 2009-08-09 15:03:22 by gloom gloom
i'm ambivalent. there's a lot of good stuff in there and the effort clearly shows, and in the end i concluded that there's nothing WRONG with it... but it's not there yet. a little more attention to making the demo feel a bit more an experience than just a random showoff will pay off in later prods :)

Getting what blackpawn is.

from what i recall from the asm stream, this prod is a major step up from the group's last asm prod. i liked.

your loading time is awesome. the rest is just boring flyby, which surely has some serious craftmanship involved, but this is simply not enough.

It's weird. A low-res sw rendered version of this would have been the epitome of demo design 10 years ago, but these days it's barely more than an ok-ish lightshow.

quite ok engine but felt empty and hollow. also i hate all the epic crap and i didn't like the music. this is better than your last asm prod though.

i wish you would have a different style as you have lots of potential.
added on the 2009-08-09 18:17:26 by pommak pommak
Just a bit too much of a large 3D-flyby, but it does have nice objects and a nice soundtrack. Probably a bit inconsistent though.
rulez added on the 2009-08-09 18:25:25 by Paranoid Paranoid
Music is great, although a bit cheesy perhaps. 3D is great too, although worlds are a little empty, there's not much direction going on.
rulez added on the 2009-08-09 19:06:04 by Otis^Infuse Otis^Infuse
I really liked this. Wicked textures, but as mentioned from others - with a little more direction and pace, you guys could go from very good to excellent. Keep it up!
rulez added on the 2009-08-09 19:50:40 by menace menace
Pretty nice, worth of the thumb just about. Nice sound track if a little basic in composition. Camera movement in places felt a bit stop-start(or mabye mechanical describes it best, ie it didn't flow that smoothly) like at the Volcano scene. IMO not a 2nd place demo but a decent 2nd windows demo for your team. I look forward to seeing more from you guys beyond a pretty flyby.
rulez added on the 2009-08-09 20:41:10 by Intrinsic Intrinsic
Yeah, the music is totally disconnected from the visuals but there are some nice things in there.

I really recommend you guys try out different styles by maybe doing some smaller (in terms of effort) demos for smaller demoparties. ;)

I remember liking what you'd done vs last year before some groups came in and stomped all over the competition with their demo.

hmm. Amazing amount of work. The lighting of some scenes (esp. the vulcano-part) is amazing, but the final result is... well... suggestion cool future productions: More syncing (e.g. in the glitches part), more music, more cuts instead of camera-paths, more dirt in the air.

Please to a final (ask gloom for some music), don't do any more modeling, make it less then 3 minutes. Add glitches, and cuts. Sync to sound effects. Use a consistent color scheme. Keep the best effects for the final 3rd. Ahhh this would be a cool demo, indeed.

rulez added on the 2009-08-10 01:47:34 by Chainsaw Chainsaw
Really good 3d engine, lots of good scenes, some good ideas.. but it's let down by a few things I think.

The design overall feels a little dated, and it doesn't fit together as a whole somehow - it's like an asd demo, but without a theme or message. Also, the camera movement was too fast in a lot of places, and too erratic.

Weak thumb overall.. if you're doing demos like this, you're very close to being a great group I think. Just need the last couple of pieces to fall into place :)

We had fun time making this demo, though maybe sacrificing tad too much of our holiday from our families.

Kind of ran out of time, so we're ok with the result. At least we got it released... few bugs remain (vista64, loading time), might roll a fix later.

decent objects and bumpmapping, but nothing that struck me as amazing, attractive or memorable. not sure why it took so long to load either. and too much rotating toward the end. i'm glad not everything is monochrome and experimental, and that it's not that much of a ripoff of anyone else's style, but it could use some more artwork or consistent design or story or emotional music or.. something. in this day and age, it just strikes me as.. allright.

This demo shows a bunch of good 3d scenes with nice textures, models and lightning. The music is not bad, but its not really fitting in, its like something that is played but is not part of the demo itself. What the demo lacks most is something that holds everything together, call it design, call it a red line. I was very much missing that. Obviously the skills are there, so to give things a bit more sense next time.
Thumbs up for the work you put into this and to motivate you to keep making demos.

rulez added on the 2009-08-11 15:37:49 by decipher decipher
I just watched it and thought the biggest problem with it was that the music did not match what happened on screen. While it's a great standalone track, it completely does not melt with the visuals. And that's a shame. The demo has some great scenes IMO, such as the circle with the tentacle-like spotlights, which unfortunately aren't able to show their full potential. With a fitting track, the demo would be twice as good. Thumb up for the great visuals and the overall passion. Keep it up guys. I enjoy watching your prods!

I enjoyed the intro/outro, the scene with the six-branch-wheel, the abstract scenes and the final scene (with screens).

But the rest and the whole demo lacks some originality/soul and design imho.

The soundtrack is nice but a little bit too generic, and is too much disconnected from the visuals.

Huge amount of work but I think you should spend a (large) part of the worktime on the design for the next one, it could be really great.

what's up with all the low-res glossy bump maps these days ? adding bump != looking good you know. This actually ruins a couple of scenes. At least, those that weren't already by the overdose of "synch to nothing" or just too random visuals. I usually try to stay positive or at least constructive, so i'll say: next time try to be more coherent, less generic, and try to make the music actually fit the demo, both in term of style and sync. thx. and use some jpg compression or something, 40MB wtf?

some gfx was ok but unfortunately the music was not. And a total lack of atmosphere.

There are definately signs of a 64 bit windows fix but these are difficult times because of the global economy so we will just have to be patient.

your eagle symbol is cool!

music makes this one a bit flybyish (in asd style) :D
waiting for your next demo!!

oh, and all the critics are lamers and douchebags.

i love this!!

in particular -

...how you youtubed the loader bar
...how you play with light in this demo
...the guitars in the music
...that this is not as dark and sad as 90% of what the demoscene produces
...how cool the lighting is. wait i'm repeating myself

I just re-watched it, needs thumb for the absurdly large modelling and shader-coding effort..!

Will it ever be fixed for Win7 x64? Works fine in XP x32 though.

Thanks for the kind words from whoever liked it. And thanks from the criticism. We had fun time doing this, but time is short and gotta cut corners. Best for demoscene is to release something, anything.

Vista and Win7 fix was almost done, but my HDD broke. I think our second coder, pharaffin still have the sources, so it shouldnt be that a big deal. It's just the GUI which causes the crash afterall.. peace

Very beautiful visual overload! Win7 fix would be really appreciated :)

The whole demo was pretty much just a boring flyby with nice but dull 3d graphics

If you have problems with the launcher, you can make your own:

Code: // params: width, height, windowed typedef void (__cdecl *RUNPROC)(int, int, BOOL); HMODULE dll; RUNPROC proc; dll = LoadLibraryA("project_avarus.dll"); proc = (RUNPROC)GetProcAddress(dll, "run"); (proc)(1920, 1200, FALSE); FreeLibrary(dll);

Weirdly, I never commented this one.
But anyway, to me it's a piggy because of the ASD-ish feel + the music.

Nice technic, now I'm waiting for some more originality.

A little bit ASD-ish......
I like it!

Great work!

Don't keep your hopes up. Maybe slighty different shit in the same box..

The DLL entry looks correct. Last bool parameter is the windowed mode. Our launcher is just shitty.

Very sad...STILL no win7 x64 fix yet!!
So I can't watch it here, too!

so, presumably that's cisual c++ or c:# - now what sort of project type do I need to create?

actually - - before I go to far - can we have a step by step guide on how to do this and get a new launcher?

Ta - sorry to sound a bit thick!
I made a simple launcher. It is just quickly tested so hopefully it works :).

yep, good job !
i like that fast rotating light-tentacle-object most :)

loader works, but the process sticks around after demo is finished.
Cool!

64bit loader sadly missing. Apart from that a nice demo with a nice tune, although as other have mentioned, the tune feels a bit misplaced
