nice fullscreen stuff.

Nice one, good music (that gets boring after a while though), nice graphics and the effects are quite nice too. I would have left out the tunnel though, doesn't look good and just doesn't fit IMHO. Zoom scroller is nice but the zooming seems to be a somewhat jerky which spoils it quite a bit. Other than that a nice demo.

Nice and fast effects! Well done! :)

Short of the demo lacking any pace or syncing with the music, it is otherwise outstanding.

(yes I could nitpick about a couple of things, but I won't :))

Top class production as expected from DHS.

well done! impressive

Awesome technical achievement; coder boner for sure. Great idea to put a bitmap w. highlights in the boing-ball, and the "sunrise"-rasters in the end screen looks awesome.
rulezadded on the 2011-07-06 13:39:54 by shoggoth shoggoth
The characteristic 'easy on the eye' Dead Hackers style strikes again. Disagree with the earlier comment about the tunnel. It works in this demo for me. Gorgeous plasma's and much hitting of the STe enhanced palette with a big coding stick. I'm also pleased at something which uses the full 4 MB, as I have such a machine of course! Thanks again guys!

Wowzers... seems I missed a lot in the last months on the Atari... very impressive!

This demo rules : STE + 4mo is the way !!!

Excellent stuff. Contains a few extremely nice screens that have a simple concept but nobody thought about before obviously - I really like that.
Music is nice and the graphics work out well, too, so it's definetly a very cool demo.

Nice. :)

Very good

Looks more Falcon than XE which is good! Nice work with the music, and some very nice effects!
Some sync routines would be nice, but this works well as a multipart rolling demo!
Loved the opening screens Plasma is a fav! and it was used well!

Very good looking 'summer' thema demo & with several new effects (raster z dist, nice pasma colours, very good cable distorter & amazing/fast (8 colors ?) rorozoom, big realtime scroller zoomer, the return of another very fast tunnel effect, ... a great prod !
rulezadded on the 2011-07-12 16:10:37 by hylst hylst
Thanks for all the comments guys, it's appreciated :)

Zweck: It was coded with the aid of an emulator (Hatari 1.5) so it works OK with that.

bahh: We love you too ! :)

Hylst: The rotozoom is 4 bitplanes (and 1 VBL like the rest of the demo)

Dot-Mat, bouncing vector, zoomscroll, fullscreen plasma. This brings back memories from the early nineties.

nice prod!

DHS? what else? :) All the effects are in 50 fps!
I love the beautiful colors and the music is great hybrid.
In addition there are original effects, and fulscreen!
DHS forever !!!

bravo! bravo! bravo!

one of THE best demos for STe! (maybe the best ;))
rulezadded on the 2012-05-24 14:37:02 by calimero calimero
Which screens are total full screens? Youtube vid shows most of the screens upper and lower border removed. But dhs.nu video stream shows all the screens in total fullscreen.

Still, this is one of my favorite STe demos ever.
