rulezadded on the 2012-05-20 18:05:47 by magic magic
has some very nice effects/elements, some other stuff (like the 3D objects) looked a bit too grainy and flat for my liking

in short: cool amiga debut!
(also am i right that the win32 port does not have fullscreen support?)
rulezadded on the 2012-05-20 18:10:49 by superplek superplek
Very cool demo!!! I made a quick WinUAE grab for Youtube.

... looking forward to your next Amiga demo! ;o)

My favorite from the party: the track is phenominal, one of glxblt's best for ever. I'm a sucker for the minimalistic sound working together with the visuals. The video feedback tying together with the movie frames of people taking photographs was just such a powerful synesthetic moment.
rulezcdcadded on the 2012-05-20 19:00:23 by visy visy
Yep this kicks tons of ass. Amazing effects executed to near perfection, perfectly synced to a kickass dnb track. Classic design and effects overall but it still manages to feel fresh. One other thing I gotta mention are the colors which for me at least are certainly yet another highlite here. Not only the best prod of the party but probably my favorite demo so far this year.

owsom! phat music and delicate visual details. That fire scene is way up! Also takes barely ~5% cpu on my 400 MHz downclocked Phenom II - fantastic code!
rulezadded on the 2012-05-20 20:20:21 by scooper22 scooper22
w32 port just runs in a tiny, tiny screen so i watched it on jewtube.
The music is awesome and the flow tight, a little weak on the fx otherwise.
anyway, solid thumb!

Aha! New traction demo! I didn't look at the platform so I downloaded the windows port thinking it was a mac demo. But then I saw the platform after the windows download failed (crappy hotel network)! What a surprise however I recalled talking to Traction guys that they were getting into some Amiga coding. I didn't actually expect a demo to come out of it though. Nice work! I like the dot effects and the liquid simulation effect. Also a bit of jungle is always welcome! Looking forward to more Traction prods on Amiga! :)
