nice mood

Also contains an OpenGL textmode renderer. The demo will most likely be ported to some other platforms as well..

This is indeed a nice one. At first i thought about where the soundtrack would go but later it filled in pretty nicely.
Can you make any demo a textmode demo with that textmode renderer?
rulezadded on the 2010-12-13 18:10:07 by CONS CONS
like it :)
rulezadded on the 2010-12-13 18:12:23 by blkpanther blkpanther
It works the other way, the OpenGL renderer emulates text mode.

Shiny TMD and cool Jolly Roger logo at the end.
Imo a good choice for the podium.

very nice colors and twister
but the scenes look a bit too much like the previous demo's from you guys.
bring new stuff!

Nice. Liked hedelmae's previous demos more, this just seemed to have less cool stuff in it, but still a good demo. Extra thumbs for the OpenGL renderer.

Basically the best use of colors I've seen in a PC textmode demo so far. Also, nice touch with the OpenGL renderer.
rulezadded on the 2010-12-13 20:08:36 by kusma kusma
Nice colors indeed. Effects and music don't do it for me though.
added on the 2010-12-13 20:40:31 by StingRay StingRay
One of the best looking textmode demos I've seen! The colorscheme is very good!
Best so far!
rulezadded on the 2010-12-13 20:55:53 by Frost Frost
Great tmd.
And the _gl version is indeed very useful for the fullscreen.

I really liked your 2010 releases, congratulations guys.

fucking killer, goes straight to my list of best textmode demos ever
rulezadded on the 2010-12-13 22:44:07 by noby noby
i like it ! as all of hedelmae!
you have some nice renderer there, i like nice textmo-renderers ! eventho i myself dont use em so far, or dont code em..take it as you want!
ending didnt happen.
your nice 3ds look like repeated patterns of a video.
i still like it! just get rid of video-looking realtime-effex ;)
i´d have called it "textmode 15 compochiller" ;)
wait: i cant do a 4th one anymore now, i just reveiled that secret ;/

the tune is a bit too "forseeable" for my taste but does the job.
nice elegant textmode demo.

Android port. Should run on any Android device but for smooth experience please run it on a high end model:)

The Android port runs fine on my Desire. Porting text-mode demos to mobiles? Weird, but nice ;)

great! the music is a little bit out of my taste though
rulezadded on the 2010-12-16 06:00:02 by zeebr zeebr
colorful, but that´s it. solid soudtrack, but the demo hardly takes advantage of it.

Solid. And <3 for the android port. Worked excellent on my HTC Incredible

love the colours and the renderer. somehow i'm amazed noone managed to make textmode look this good before (to my knowledge). it's a bit like how focus suddenly made the c64 funky.

I like Hedelmae, I love textmode demos and this demo is rock solid -> thumb of course.

However, I'd like to point out that the OpenGL renderer does *not* produce the same output as the console version, because real console output would be 720x400, not 640x400 :)
rulezadded on the 2011-01-20 17:46:27 by KeyJ KeyJ
720? The char size is 8x8 in Windows therefore 640x400 is correct:)
added on the 2011-01-21 18:08:02 by fragment fragment
The character size is 8x8 *in Windows*, yes. But the VGA hardware generates a 9th column. Thus, the image generated from your OpenGL renderer (which is a really great idea BTW and highly appreciated!) is not identical to what you get when running the textmode version in fullscreen.
added on the 2011-01-24 11:28:59 by KeyJ KeyJ
Awsome...and is it just me or does the music got a sorta...late nineties newschool feel to it?

This is correct, but wouldn't that 9th column yield a somewhat odd picture with a modern video mode using square pixels?

Anyway, nice demo.
