I had plans to make a demo called Devolution in 1997 or something. Duke then said that the title sucks and we changed it. Devo rules! Nice demo.

In my book this is a very good demo that I'll watch a few times again. There are lots of details to discover. Minor issues are not so important.

--------------------------------------

Felt so nice to create that Kewlers-folder again :D With an "arrivatro" they hail us once again comes with little faults, perhaps, but you just gotta love that attitude. And somehow it was everything I always wanted to see someday. The beginning captured me supringly in a way unexpected. Instead of babbling incoherences, I will just settle for: Wow.

And now to the really interesting part, what did you guys learn on your travels around and back from Kewltron?

Yeah, some stuff is not right here (the typography being no. 1). But there's some really good stuff too. Not all of the good stuff is really obvious, I think it might take a few viewings to get it.

what wullon said. ati fix works here, although the particle parts are a bit sluggish. maybe not as in-your-face as some would like, but still enjoyable. a thumb half-up.
rulez added on the 2010-08-10 15:15:06 by phoenix phoenix
yeah well.
basically i would have expected a bit more from a kewlers-are-back-prod(tm) but that is not the fault of the demo itself more of 1995 and co.

I repeat my request since it's been days already: ---GIVE US THE SOUNDTRACK---

Kewlers remain quiet of their findings from their interstellar-journey, so I'll take a guess then: What you learned was that lot of names seem kewler if you replace their O's with Q's? :D

A solid production from the genre of "demoish demo" :)
Sadly lacked the 2D graphics, direction and the little something that could have had it competing with Stargazer.
The font was a felony, but I'm a fool for classic show-off demos. Up you go.

Also as addition to my first comment on this demo:
Loved the volumetric line rendering effect, loved the raymarch stuff!

(there's certainly nothing to complain about the design and effects here, but there's probably some technical / implementation issue around as during every scene change in this demo I'm experiencing some kind of frame rate stop taking about half a second)

Maybe you're running out of vram and that's the drivers reloading some textures or something? Everything is calculated and loaded right in the beginning.

It also crashed for me during the loader screen (saw the black screen with white bar) for my ATI Radeon 4870 video card (512 MB of RAM) with Catalyst driver v9.7 in an old, updated Windows XP Pro. SP3 machine. :(

http://pastie.org/1106431 for the Dr. Watson's and WinDbg's analyses on my crash dump.

Anyways, I watched the HQ AVI file and it wasn't bad. Pig for not supporting ATI video cards. No excuse to ignore NVIDIA's main competitor (still getting an ATI video card for future video cards). :(

Thanks, I'm not good at debugging crash dumps but seems the ATI driver dll made the access violation. The atifix version only fixes the minor syntax error in shader code (which compiles with nvidia just fine btw).

Surely isn't my favourite demo from kewlers, but the amount of content alone deserves a thumb. The music felt okay as well.

At some point, if the palette would have been a bit different, it'd have been a nice synesthetics prod :)
