Does not run on 9500GT.
Still best 4k, ever.

a final version with better transitions will probably follow. it was struggle enough for now to get it running for the compo.

also a video and a version with screen mode selection will come in a few days, after i recreated from the party, so please be patient ;)

Looks like I gave a thumb up too quickly: it keeps crashing on my 8800 (Vista) although I have d3dx9_38.dll as the nfo mentions it.

keops and other crash candidates:

sorry for misleading info. it was the plan to use d3dx_38.dll but i had some strange visual discrepancies right before the compo and within the general confusion so i simply linked to the newest available (which is 41). will fix that at home, as well as video and such things, but need some sleep first, sorry

My expectations were high, due such a solid group coming from the Amiga to make an impact on the PC-Scene, and so right I was!
The music is very nice, sweet harmony in a crisp D&B take. The GFX are awesome, felt like drips of honey mixed with cream, clouds over hot chocolate with flakes of mint and fruits! Outstanding! Keep up the good work!

There are some details about the bike etc. that I would change (the debris should maybe look more dust-like and less like a dissolving ramp imho), but it's pretty awesome still. Music is pretty rad for 4k as well.

Excellent work. Just when I thought the 4k had all been used up, the tron part came on. Complete surprise, but not a surprise to see it win, at all.
rulezadded on the 2009-10-04 14:25:42 by Malodix Malodix
YEAH!!! Fucking ACE :D! This is one of those prods that you need to stop and think a bit and take it all in... I will have to watch this a couple of more times. So many fresh things about this intro :D. The best 4k intro soundtrack to date :D!? Fucking awesome tune and technically very impressive. I love the simplicity of the percussion sounds. Why aren't there more D&B soundtracks in 4k intros ;)?

I wasn't expecting such 4k quality from some other group than Loonies or TBC et al. Really refreshing to see this level of quality from Alcatraz (not that earlier prods have been bad, but this is the best one I've seen :)).

Also quite rulage to see twisted/distorted geometry like that. Looks so goddamn nice :). And also really funny to see the 4k scene jumping on the vehicle bandwagon and have a motorcycle like that in the ASD style ;). 2009 seems to be the year when the scene collectively seemed to say "Fuck it! Just through a motorcycle in there and make it look like ASD or something!" ;D.

incredible variety of content for 4k, nice shaders and synth, very 64k-like. for whatever reason, it played letterboxed in 1280x960, rather than 1280x720 fullscreen. but i'm guessing a final version with more modes will fix that. and yeah, the end is rupture/frameranger cliche, but it's great seeing it in 4k. :) well done!

ok, back home and got some minutes for step1: screen modes :)

new download

now contains a version with config dialog to select a screen resolution.
also changed the sound output to 16bit integer format so that it should work on all soundcards.
those of you who experienced crashes most probably didnt have d3dx9_41.dll installed or just copied/renamed an older one to be _41.
unfortunately i depend on that dll version because all previous versions i tried failed displaying the first scene correctly ... dont know why yet.

apart from those changes its still identical to the party version. a real final will follow soon.

Excellent visuals, didn't like the music (patch programming is very good though, just didn't like the tune).
A point of criticism would be that I think the cube in the intro moves/deforms too fast. The soundtrack is slow and epic, so the fast motion of the cube doesn't really fit.

Really good production!
