m? i thought it was made by mawi.

anyway, i only remember few from the compo, but it must've been great ;)

the nfo states it's by 'M. (aka Madcats vs. Erazorwiards)' or something like that.. it's MaWi alright, but I decided to be exact this time.. 8}
oh, and we need a divx of it. definitely.

please please please do a DivX of this demo
I don't have a PPC, just A1200/060
can't see it... :(

Definately cool stuff again from Mad Wizards! I wonder why this only got 4th.

Awesome gfx and design again. And fab music too!!!! And good code.

The only thing i miss in Mawi demos is some more energy, synchro and faster speed effects (more like polka stuff).

And there is a high quality divx available encoded by Mawi dudes themselves.

z5, set us the bomb (url for the divx version, please).

nice stuff. and if i remember correctly they had problems showing this on big screen and it didn't run in full speed that might've dropped the demo from top3 (where it should've been for sure).

once again. divx, pleeease!

z5, hmm can't access that directy neither with ie (asks for authorization) or cuteftp (doesn't want to connect with anonymous login)
added on the 2002-06-09 15:04:16 by melw melw
hmm...strange...it works for me with ie and smartftp anonymous??
added on the 2002-06-09 15:31:41 by z5 z5
pretty cool stuff, although the design is a lil' cliche for mawi.. and it goes on forever, which is why it won't get no thumb from me.. 8]

I was quite blown away when I saw this, but I can't help thinking that they're wasting their talents on the PPC.

Anyway, for those who haven't found it already, here's a link for the Divx version:

waiting for next mekka.

I fail to be excited.

Angsty design that doesn't seem to say anything new, amorphous objects with poor or no textures.. some funk-trip hop kind of music..

It seems to deal more with appearance than substance

i liked the vibe on this one. mawi roxx full stop. insert disk 2 :)

wtf is "angsty"?

impressive

Looked pretty cool to me, I liked the shadows.

Still, to determine the level of impressed I should be, I need to know a bit more of the HW. What kind of power are we talking about (in PC terms). PPC == about a first gen P2 in speed? What about 3D, was some kind of 3D card used?
rulezadded on the 2002-07-30 11:09:38 by Sdw Sdw
this is how i like demos, beautiful, stylish, nice code(sdw: there are dozens of ppc's but the ones used for amigas is about the same as p1 if i'm not wrong, got a mac with the same kinda cpu..). the messages about being a scener really reminded me of one thing that's lost me.. it's about doing nice stuff.

in disc 1 part:
very good music wich worth the download of the big video file (122Mb)
i dont understand the link between jesus and heavy trafic of cars
i like a lot the bridge part, all is good in this part
the texts layers are too much static
greetings takes too much time and didnt fit the colors of the whole demo
credits are made in a good movie style, but it miss the nicknames
the picture with lots of photos and text in the vocal part of the music didnt fit the rest of the demo, and this picture is ugly ;)
the coherency between scenes are colors, but not heavy traffic
in disc 2 part:
the music is good but didnt fit the thema of the rest of the demo
this part is too long and boring, and credits are allready be done in the start of the prod

it's a good demo with good musics, design and colors style

crusified jesus on tv-screens...this demo seems to have some kind of message that i don't understand. it's really cool anyway...can't remember seeing it at mekka though. but when i look at it now i can't understand why it didn't rank higher.
rulezadded on the 2002-08-31 20:57:50 by Dalton Dalton

i can only agree with knos. tho' substance is still member of MAWI i guess =]

i am not after minimalism and short-blast-like-appearance but MAWI mostly overdoses everything.. they always have lot of nice (also original) fx, great gfx as well, sometimes even superb music but it all somehow doesnt work well.. this time again :|

Just saw the video. Damn. Time well spent, for the group making it and for me downloading it.

Anyone know a new source for the divx video? seems all links are broken.

An idea probably stolen from Marilyn Manson's "I don't like the drugs" videoclip, or they both copied it from the same source :-)

Anyhow, added the divx video link, thanks to the person who uploaded it to scene.org
