nice to see more active groups on speccy. the code, graphics and music were good, but when put together they didnt really create something better. hope your next speccy demo has more tight concept/design.
motivational thumb.

This was pretty good, especially the music. I'd have liked a bit more synchro, like maybe have the cube spin in beat with the music. Also, yay for greet :)

We should bug YouTube about including 50 and 60 Hz transcoding profiles.

Wow, this is the kind of Speccy demos I like.
Mostly highres effects (and if lowres, some good graphics combined), beautiful retro stuff! Everything is smooth and looks great. Long time to see highres polygons.

A very dynamic demo - I hope you will not move to another platform! Guys from The Super need some competition. The circular scroller is splendid as well as the first chessboard effect.
rulezadded on the 2012-09-09 18:02:04 by Eye Eye
nice and sweet demo with brain-crashing platfrom-specific effect (chessboard). music could be a bit better (sorry yerz), but otherwise, it deserves thumb up in any ways.
also, i hope oh so much, that you won't stop making demos for zx!
rulezadded on the 2012-09-09 18:11:56 by sq sq
Great demo. Music is quite Yerzmyeyish "ta-ta-ta-tada-ta-tada" - still the same like his other musics. But it's cool, as always :)

Makes me want to go and solder some attribute RAM straight into my Atari :-) Excelling 2d GFX also. The vector object looks a bit strange because the border of the invisible planes is not drawn.

brain-crashing platfrom-specific effect

Why? because it should look worse on attribute cell boundaries?

Now I just realized why the speccy dudes were whining at that forum about the CPC prod. I didn't realized before that this came 2nd after the CPC demo, till I looked at the results table again. Nah,. partyvoting is so unpredictable. Definitely this one should be a 1st, saying it even as a CPC fan :)

JAC! it's hard to explain to non-speccy dude. There is only 2 colors can be used in 8x8 cell in standard mode. So usually in the demos when you draw fullscreen sinus pixel-plasma you draw it in 2 colors. If the background will be 8x8 cell discrete, you can draw by 3rd color over it. But nobody (afaik) did't made it in 4 colors - by changing one of the background colors. So it's look like a Transparency effect and it's COOL!

to gasman : We made ​​reference to sugarlumps: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_oM-6tlqz6k, but more votes had not increased, indicating that fraudulent voting at the event. ZX Spezza won. Gasman - not betray Spectrum - is svyayatoe like cake!
added on the 2012-09-11 15:05:02 by 3ASOFT 3ASOFT
"betraying the Spectrum"? Oh jeez. I hope this is just an enormous joke that's being lost in translation (I've tried to follow the conversation on zx.pk.ru, but Google Translate does a really bad job of the slang on there), because if it isn't, this is the most childish scene war ever.

I do think this is the better demo of the two, and I'm also surprised that it didn't win (it was well received at the party - I was happy to see people applauding the sine plasma effect, as I assumed it would be something only Speccy sceners would 'get') - but accusing people of fraudulent voting and ripping just because you don't like the result, is Not Fucking Cool. Especially when it's about someone's first demo.

Demoparty voting isn't perfect, but at least it involves the same set of people watching the demos at roughly the same time. Pouet commenting doesn't.

Nice job by Noice! Should rank first I guess, but that's what happens when zx people compete with cpc :P Yerzmyey for president - another great music :)
rulezadded on the 2012-09-11 17:48:26 by voXfReaX voXfReaX
Spektrumisty concerned for voting at the event, zx lost a weaker job. Translate what we write on zx.pk.ru very difficult because we write misspelled words. gasman not swear we're just worried about zx speccy, deme nightmare was a success! And by the way, gasman long did the demo on zx speccy.

3ASOFT: I have chatted with Andreas who coded this demo and he took this defeat very gracefully and understood that sometimes these things happen. I don't know why you feel compelled to make such a big deal about this when even the original author doesn't feel as strongly as you do. Just leave it, there's no conspiracy going on, just a quirk of party voting.

A really flipping wonderful production! LOVED it at the party! Really brill music/ace code and fab visuals! <3

I was going to respond in more detail to the more nutty comments in here but RC55 beat me to it :D but...

3ASOFT: If you would be so kind as to stop harassing Gasman, he was extremely helpful as always getting THIS ace demo (and other cool spectrum stuff) running on hardware at the event. Honestly the level of silliness on display here is beyond =all= measure :D

Anyway I'm off to make a new beeper tune <3

Since when the battles in comments became a true demoscene? Will we see any fucktro at last?

Take TOGYAF as an example with their excellent Anal Funk for Silly Punk and code something already.
