I get this error:

failed to load effect "data/blur.fx"
added on the 2010-11-07 23:41:08 by Salinga Salinga
Salinga: That means you have to update your directx, not just download the D3DX DLL from the internet. blur.fx is the first shader that is loaded, and this error is issued if the D3D shader compiler (which is in a separate DLL in recent versions of the SDK) isn't found.

looks good, sounds tight, and flows well, nice invite!

Great light and sound show. I'm looking forward to hear more about this party and why it takes place at the same time in the same country as TG.

Nice little single-effect invite. Come to Eastergarden. :-)
rulezadded on the 2010-11-08 00:35:52 by Sesse Sesse
Thanks, works now! I still have some gfx glitches though (it seems, some light textures have no transparent background).
added on the 2010-11-08 00:49:56 by Salinga Salinga
As a demo, it's not among the best, but the music is simply fantastic! And the message is definately uplifting. Looking forward to see more about this interesting party. I'm kinda hoping it'll be somewhere near TG and there'll be a shuttle-bus or something. Could be awesome! Thumb up for the music ;)

apart from that, nice sync and dubstep.
dubstep seems to be everywhere gloom is mentioned in the credits these days ;)

piggie -- nice tune and sync. but fails to deliver visually imho (its not bad, i just expected more polish).
added on the 2010-11-08 08:00:33 by superplek superplek
Maybe a little light on content, but music, sync and message more than makes up for it.

For everyone who's wondering about the party: as soon as we have confirmation about the location, all will be revealed!

Also, it should be pretty obvious what this is.

does the job greatly with a lot of oomph, and I giggled because of the Andromeda line. Also, fantastic and effective greetings part! Good work, Mister Gloom and Kusma.
rulezadded on the 2010-11-08 20:12:47 by Axel Axel
Very good, nice tune, good syncro!

Do not like scenewars personnally (if it is sth like one), since the reasons and being wrong are always shared...

Far from being a cube fanboy, but this demo does it right. You've exploited the regular cube lattice to achieve sweet lighting effects that would be generically very difficult. Major thumb. Demo done right.

Cubes , lightning, syncing and soundtrack. All ingredients, but it lacks creativity and originality imho.

I really like the effect, but as a demo it would've been too weak if not for the awesome soundtrack.
