Had to see this in video because the emulator slows down for some reason (and the music stutters).

A lot of cool stuff here. Looks great from a distance. Great colors and graphics (is it some advanced version of the speccy?)
rulezadded on the 2009-12-29 04:48:57 by Optimus Optimus
Optimus Knight no. This is normal unexpanded ZX128. Special colors are come from using of 2 screens - closer to IFLI on C64.

Really nice demo, but the video (and included emu-setup) is a bit misleading as it does hide the interlace-flickering. Won't give any thumbs until I've seen the 128k-version

Watching the video I was first going "WTF? Where are those colors coming from - I thought the Spectrum only had those full-saturated RGB-combination colors!?!"
Now I see that it is flickering between two screens, but that the emulator disables this and creates the "perfect" inbetween-color. This is somewhat misleading. If you edit the INI-file in the emul-directory and change the NoFlic=1 setting to NoFlic=0, you'll see that it flickers quite a lot.

However, it might look much better on a 50Hz CRT, so I won't judge it either way until I can see it on real HW.

Chaos you are wrong! All FX are 64*30 pix in color chanks 4*4 and gigascreen pallet of 64 colors.

At the party (during stream) they show us ZOOMED picture - only center of the screen :-(
gfx and muza are great, fx normal, but only chunky is boring....

Awesome Speccy demo! And an excellent flow! Though, I would have liked to see more bitmapped effects, heh ;) (nitpicking.. the youtube clip is kinda misleading, because on a real +3 hardware the demo flickers quite a lot and therefore does not look nearly as cool as the emulator capture looks..)

Sorry guys. Thumb down for the flickering. Gigascreen is really a not standard thing. And who wants to watch demos in emulator, is not a real spectrumist. Next time, make a demo for ZX Spectrum, not for some fucking non standard russian clone. And the music is ripped from some old demo. Scandalous!

Hey Factor6! Grab your shinny ass and download full archive with .TAP

Unpack, transfer and run on your (not 48k) Speccy. And check results!!!

Gigascreen is the name for 2scr FX - nothing new - unexpeded Speccy forever!

In the archive there is some idiotic PC stuff. Sorry guys. The TRD is only in Pentagon directory. No TAP version, no normal Sperctrum 128K version (yet), and those gigascreen flickers fx simply SUCK BIG TIME. Well, it could be called rather Eye Ache III. 8 colours + bright is not enough for you?
added on the 2009-12-29 15:40:05 by Factor6 Factor6
This demo runs normally on regular "demo-scene" standard which is ZX Spectrum 128.
I've checked it out.
However making a demo in 2009 with music RIPPED FROM ANOTHER DEMO is highly lame, considering so many great AY musicians still beeing active. I'm very suprised. It doesn't matter if it was with the agreement from the musician or without. The music is ripped (although it's cool itself).
It's not 1989, it's 2009, guys.

Anyway the demo is fantastic. Should be "rulez" but it's only "OK" because of ripping music in 2009.

I will try to find the original demo later.
added on the 2009-12-29 16:11:37 by johny johny
Ok, I watched this on a real speccy 128k, and it gets a very very weak thumb from me, because that terrible flicker really burned my eyes...

added on the 2009-12-29 16:35:22 by stijn stijn
johny! "if it was with the agreement from the musician or without." this track was used under permission of the author, more then - this is an author remix of original track. Yes it was released before but it is not a RIP - MMCM is here in the house and he knows about this becose he is a part of the team - just check last 5 second of demo
britelite - what kind of TV - coz i test it only on LCD. Yep fliker but it is not so horrible as RGB flicker (3 screens - 1 per 50/3 fps)

@BITL: Thanks fot he link. Didn't know about it and in the [download] is just the stuff with TRD. Anyway, the music could have been original, not a remix of well known song... hmmm :/
added on the 2009-12-29 16:46:06 by Factor6 Factor6
This is music ripped from "Jaundice" demo by Screamer, released for Chaos Constructions 2001 party (fantastic Speccy demo by the way).

Still the music is very good but...
Like I said, it doesn't matter if the author agreed or not.
They ripped the music and it's simply lame.

It's a shame because "Mescaline synesthesia" is great. It's a pity it has no original music.
added on the 2009-12-29 16:46:11 by johny johny
Ok it is the same but remixed - there is no secret. But "Jaundice" is zero thumbs up and this one is in the top of the month! Give deMarche a chance - it is not so easy to find good AY track for a demo within 2 weeks right now :-(
OK, I give the "rulez". It does after all.

But groups like AY-RIDERS aren't inactive...

Factor 6,
1. music isn't ripped, it's a remix with author's permission.
2. demo doesn't use hardware gigascreen, it runs on normal spectrum 128k.

but i have agreed that original music is always better and noflic mode is a bit unfair to use in compo.

about the demo: good code! keep the zx demoscene alive!
added on the 2009-12-29 20:13:03 by diver diver
Pixel art really pops, music is ok, code is solid (like the metaballs and the gooey scroller) especially for unexpanded 128.
rulezadded on the 2009-12-29 20:54:03 by Insectecutor Insectecutor
Flickering, slow 8x8 effects. I think you can do better! I knew from the first tones the music is from the CC00 invitro(i think i was even showing it on mekka symposium?)

......soooooo Factor6 always complained that he does music for nothing. C-Jeff Is also lurking somewhere and Yerzmyey is always in for a tune (And Vodka).
(get the hint)
You can pay respect to musicians in a better way than using their known musics...

At least the pace was good and the gfx dont look ripped. Piggie for saving the compo. ;-)
added on the 2009-12-29 21:48:05 by Exin Exin
What Exin said. The music could have been different. Not a remix of well known demo music. About code, yes, it's probably on the very high level. Gigascreen FX - why not, but not in whole demo (WTF!). Again, next time, do a demo for ZX Spectrum. Like C64 people do demos for C64s. Nobody is curious about stuff which runs correctly only in some fucking emulator (not this case, of course, it works on firm Spectrum). But, yes, if it saved TUM compo, that's fine.

xeron, yes. if to be honest, video was done in artificial "noflic" emulator mode. in real it flickers with 2 screens.

4x4 done using multicolor - it is no flick on real machine. GFX yes, it is 2 screens and it is 50Hz flicker
that was really a great show!
rulezadded on the 2010-01-02 21:41:24 by Bobic Bobic
even with flicker it rocks! (but why do you use ccc invitation tune for this cool demo? Was it melange's track? I think it was) Still rocks!
rulezadded on the 2010-01-03 00:02:43 by ref ref
Music recycling due to lack of ACTIVE ay-composers. Yes, there is a THOUSAND OF THEM on the scene but when you need a track everyone dissapear. Music is remixed by MMCM (author) and used under full permisson. Sorry...
Ripping music is lame, nuff' said.
I asked several very _active_ composers and even nobody bothered to ask them.
You'd be honest enough to admit you prefer techno music (that sounds crappy on ay chip, like this one music) but to lie like this is simply pityful.

And the music is simply perfect... how the YM can generate those acid sounds ???? Another trick ?
rulezadded on the 2010-01-22 10:22:39 by Shazz^TRSi^MJJ Shazz^TRSi^MJJ
actually these "acid" sounds are most typical for YM. most zx sceners are rather bored with them already.

Looked at this on an emu, fucking ce,but how long does it take to load from tape on a real machine? I think I m doing something wrong because it never ends loading. Or am I just not used to tape loading? :P

If you've waited more than 10 minutes you're probably doing it wrong. If not then wait at least 10 minutes.

2Akira: what emulator you are using?
Sorry, first I misunderstood the question.
It takes about 8 minutes to load the first part.
To load it from a tape-recorder a *.tap-file should be taped.

Visually awesome... but the loading was very boring. I felt like I was loading for 10 minutes to watch a few seconds or so... My guess is you're loading animations? surely the speccy can't shade blobs in realtime. Plus that god-damn flickering!

Anyway, thumbs up for the visuals.

How do you get this running properly on real HW?
I have a +2A, loading the correct .TAP using a tape-adapter, and K7ZX with the non-accelerated standard, slow-loading mode.
Demo seems to load, but when it starts, the .wav file has not finished playing!
If I stop the tape once the demo starts, it runs fine until a picture that says something about bump.
If I leave it running I can barely hear the music, but just tape-loading noise, and after the bump-pic it seems to go into "loading mode" again, but nothing happens when it has finished loading.

Sdw: Hmmm. Do You use "usr 0" mode for loading? I can't remember at the moment if it uses "usr 0" or does it use the main menu... Hm.

PS: Also it _might_ be the case of a prog not working on +2A/+2B/+3...
I have the same experience with a +2 and a cable. The demo kinda works, but the loading sound kicks in after a while. Works properly with a divIDE only.

rulezadded on the 2012-03-23 12:39:13 by ferris ferris
Sdw / Marq: It's a multi-loading demo, so if you're loading from tape you need to stop and start the tape at the relevant points. The demo isn't really intended to be run from tape, though - it's presented as a continuous sequence (which is why there are no "start/stop tape" prompts) and the 5-minute wait between parts probably ruins the effect, but it works in principle... :-) For best results it should be run from disk, or something that can flash-load TAP files (such as the DivIDE).

Alright, finally got my DivIDE, so now I could watch this demo properly!
Still, I think my initial comment from way WAY back still stands - it just flickers too much, and this is on a proper setup, real hardware and CRT TV.
Some of the pictures handles this better where it seems to interlace on a per-line basis or something (maybe every 2/4 lines?), then the effect is more acceptable. The initial picture though (seen in the topleftmost screenshot) and many of the effects flicker like crazy however.
