@Mic (and all the others who want to run 256b intros on modern hardware) :

Download a virtual machine (VirtualBox (intel) or VirtualPC (amd or older) ) and install ms-dos on it. It will run really faster than dosbox (almost same speed as guest cpu).
I know it requires a little more tweaking than DOSBox at first (specially if you want to use a soundcard) but once you have created and configurated your virtual machine its really easy to use. also: all of these products are free.

Thanks for all the nice words, and for putting it on scene.org and youtube - my free hosting would shut my site down with all the traffic. ;)

The Windows version was a proof-of-concept and uses 4x4 progressive raymarching, that's why it's faster. I'll expand it with the intro color and parameters in a week or so.

Is that ambient occlusion?

The windows version, puls_hires.exe, is really great as well. Too bad it doesn't fit in at least 4kb. 1kb would be awesome.

oh btw. what about a shader port?
i'd like to make/see a shader version
added on the 2009-09-08 16:19:12 by src src
What is it: implicit surfaces raymarching using binary search. The shapes get "blown up" according to step size, which fakes the ambient occlusion feel (also necessary for the bisection to work). Color is the number of missed probes minus log(last step size), which had the most bearable artifacts.

Windows version: I think it would fit in 1k easily – I was just playing with the effect before switching to asm. I'll update it and release the C source after Function.

whoa, thanks for the cdc's... O_o

I guess it's something special, but I'll have to take everyone's word for it as it did nothing for me.

@Wade: I second BiTL. If you don't get it, you don't have to write a comment. Do you know what exactly "comment" means? "I'm deaf, so this music collection means nothing to me" is not a comment.

Wade comments use to hurt time to time, but, in this case, I believe it is a correct comment: he doesn't understand the technical part, and he doesn't feel anything with the visuals.

For me, thats completely ok. Also, this prod is a technical masterpiece and it doesn't matter what a non-technical expert person could think about it. If you show it to any not demoscene related, not coder and not computer enthusiast and they will probably think the same as Wade did. And that would not change at all that this prod is a true masterpiece.

Wade: well, the limit is 256 bytes and with no external resources in this case (except setting up graphics and keyboard checking)... you can balance artistic value vs. code porn only so much.

rrola: Please don't take my comment negatively as it's not meant that way. It's clear you have done something amazing here from what is being said and as it's explained to me (in basic terms) the more impressive it sounds, but like you say, there's only so much of an artistic element you can fit into 256b and I accept that. If you every put your skills to a 4k or 64k intro, however, I'm sure I will be blown away. :)

Just watched it on my Win2k machine. It's pretty slow in full-res (on a 2.4GHz P4), but it looks great.

256 bytes of god-like skills producing some jawdropping madness...
This prod is a game changer -- it's affecting me in ways no prod ever has. Where is this coming from? I feel it is tapping into the inner workings of the universe and showing it to me on the screen. My brain says it is not possible to code this in 256b. But there it is!
In light of some of the discussion above, it makes me realize it's unfortunate I don't appreciate technical work on other obscure platforms. Limewire DOS is totally obsolete, but, because I developed for it once upon a time, I feel it is still "real" -- and I have a good idea of the challenges. In any case, stunning, original work. Congratulations and well done!
This is not possible in 256b, so clearly I am dreaming and you are all figments of my imagination. When I wake up and you are all gone I just want you to know - this won.
