I got so many ideas for Amiga 500 effects that I just have to go home and code while watching this. Not only is this full of great effects, they are also utilized really well. Awesomeness all the way through.

And the graphics and music are great too!

YAPE = Best c16 emu ever. Literally runs everything you throw at it.

Rocket Science = Hands down best demo on the c16 ever, and on a very short list of best 8 bit demo of all time. The amount of work and art is staggering! :) One of the very few c16 multi disk prod.

The youtube cache load screen was very funny! LOL And the Amiga boing ball at the end!

I am seriously impressed with this. Wow. Amazing artwork, tight code, and some really nice design to put it all together. Great music considering the chip you were working with (but a SID track with some more bass would have been killer!)

To be honest, I downloaded this for the logo in the screenshot - which I thought looked pretty damn cool. Then it *scrolled*...

The needless and tired *MIIGA wankery and some other possible nitpicking aside, this is a great 8-bit platform demo with tones of effects and some great graphics. It almost feels like an Offence demo on a different platform. Some more polish and better sync and it'd be even better. :)

Overally this demo set's the bar for all 8bit demos, so awesome fresh and fast effects, great graphics, linking and overall design and a top notch TED music.
Wow, just wow, what a demo. Motivates me to start working on 8bit stuff again.

Incredibly impressive in every aspect.
And i mean it.

Seeing where Plus4 demos initially came from - trying to do what others did on the C64, just with worse music and no sprites - the Plus4 scene has managed to evolve their demos into something individual, tailored exactly to the strengths of the Plus4 and carefully avoiding all its weaknesses.

And this is, without a doubt, the masterpiece, that will be incredibly hard if not impossible to top.

Now that's oldschool with style! Not just a rehash of old effects, but also lots of new, very innovative ideas. Like Blueberry, I got very inspired by some of them! And I cannot begin to imagine just how much work went into this - outstanding!

One thing stands out like a sore thumb to me, though: Those stupid Amiga references, which didn't fit in at all and look like they were simply included to get cheers from the audience. This demo wouldn't have needed to pull off such cheap stunts to fish for votes.

Have to agree with the above, but a greatness level reached with the graphics and lovely transitions.

The designers of TED seem to have worked really hard to make a sound chip that is a complete bitch to carry a tune. this demo tries valiantly to overcome this.

I'll give you a thumb when I manage to watch this in its entirety, tried twice and it didn't engage me. The extremely mundane music doesn't help, but I know TED is a bitch and the track(s) aren't bad considering it. Massive props for the effects, design and overall effort.

Some of the screens and effects were nice, however, a very long trackmo like this needs better direction to keep things rolling. The YouTube buffering effect was a real mindfuck, though.

Hmm... something must be wrong with me, course I was not at all drawn to this. Music was empty and flat, gfx was cool and there is a lot of nice stuff and attention details, which is really awesome. BUT, somehow I managed to feel all bored and uninspired all the way through?!?!

But I reckon the design and overall awesomeness of this with a big fat thumb!

Calexico: TED sound capabilities are not "that bad" (also, this song isn't bad - it's just long and not everybody can handle 16 minutes of 2 channels, but the C=16 / Plus4 scene consequently refuses to develop and release contemporary real music tracker for their own platform or even admit that all the existing music software is pile of crap and typing music in assembler is a shameful stone age.

Nitro: It's only a memory matter. It would work on any C16 with 64K (like mine).

The "Plus/4" name refers to the four-application ROM resident office suite (word processor, spreadsheet, database, and graphing); it was billed as "the productivity computer with software built-in".

Awesome demo :) Great effects & graphics! I know that musician did more than his best, but TED sounds pretty bad - I didn't know I will ever say that, but A2600 TIA chip sounds far better).

Thumbs up for massive work!

Best +4 group is back with an awesome demo :)

Fantastic demo, although the pacing was a off sometimes, and some effects maybe a tad too ambitious for the poor plus/4 (:

Still overall a great demo, and finally a proper long one that's pure TED.
insane!

Awesome but the chip sound is hard to handle during 16 minutes ! Sounds like a brain attack ! :)

Yeah, it rocks. Yeah it kicks ass. You guys have brought an epic demo, especially on such hardware. I admire your work, sincerely.

However, 16 minutes?! Scroll/sine texts / dejavu effects going on forever? Like plenty of people mentionned it at the party place, you should have split up the release into three releases (5 minutes long is quite enough). The infinite time demo and boring effects killed the whole thing to me :(

15 minutes with a too slow rythm, and a music that didn't work with me.
I don't thumb down because of the technique, but I don't thumb up either.

Party winner. Didn't feel like 15 minutes at all at the party, more like 5 :)

Extra like for the TED chip music... and NOT taking the SID mod.

2014's 8-bit summer blockbuster! :)
Super impressive design/transitions and graphics (can't imagine how much work went into those), a lot of original effects that sometimes feel more 16-bit than 8-bit and even a touch of humour. Music isn't as impressive but I guess that's the best you can hope for with those hardware specs.

Thank you for so much overwhelmingly positive feedback!

Yes, it got a bit long in the end: we just wanted to fill both sides of the disc which resulted in many many parts. If that´s too long for you – fine.

@Mermaid: Thanks. I completely understand you point. Our idea was to have something in between "theme" and „story“. For a good story demo you need a good story – which we obviously didn´t had :-). So we thought some breaks would lighten up the whole thing.

About the „Amiga w**kery“ :-) OK , a bit too obvious crowd pleasing. My point was more like: it matters what you do and not so much on which machine or media. Of course: its harder to do stuff on something that gives you a hard time to make music and sync, which loads from a slow media and basically can either load or show effects. So I am very happy that we made it. Thanks Mad & Degauss!

Because of the „is it C16 or not“: There was no „Plus4"-category in Partymeister, so we chose the nearest – basically because it works on an extended C16 (though we developed and tested on a Plus4). This was also stated in the prod-comment.

pure love, incredible work and result.... I really liked the greetings and the 3D scroller. Amazing graphs and a rather good music considering the hardware limitations.... Masterpiece.

This is great not because it has great graphics or cool music or fantastic flow (not that anyone can seriously complain about any of these). This is great not because of the sheer amount of work on display here. For me, this is great because of the amount of invention regarding effects and transitions and just various ways of moving things across the screen. For me, as an oldschool coder, this was the most inspiring demo last year. I watched it several times and, every time, found new things I did not notice before. Thank you for this.

P.S. Sorry, I stole your Youtube joke. I could not actually remember where it came from, but now I do.
