Oh man!!!! It roxxx hard!!!!
rulez added on the 2014-09-22 10:25:52 by Sir_Lucas Sir_Lucas
It won't run on any of my real amiga hardware due to lack of memory, so I had to resort to winuae. It's a nicely presented demo with some cool ideas, but I can't thumb it due to the unwarranted memory requirements. (maybe because it was written in C?)

Another great demo! Cool atmosphere, excellent flow and good performance. Nice surprise on Party!

@Paradroid
What's you real Amiga hardware? Just a second ago I got it running on A600 and A1200. In fact, while posting here right now the demo is running on my Amiga 600.

Winner for me, beautiful demo from all aspects.

Thumbs up for music and visuals. The effects and flow was a bit disappointing, though

Had problems running this proper i winUAE. Glitches as bugs in effects. But overall a really nice amiga treat :)
rulez added on the 2014-09-22 11:34:07 by tFt tFt
plus: (as always from gtn) excellent design and soundtrack! also, need to congrats on coding the demo that looks like this completely in the C, for the OCS/ECS machines. definitely thumb up!!!

minus: the fact that some complex c2p effects runs better that simple 1bpl filled vectors. also, some bugs.

general info: after some twiddling to get it running, seems that demo requires 1mb chip ram (that means that A500+ and A600 should work out of the box.

Fuck yes awesome.
rulez added on the 2014-09-22 11:57:05 by Preacher Preacher
At the moment, the demo requires around 850kB of contiguous chunk of chip memory + another 65kB of memory for loading up executable file. I'll eventually deliver ADF disk image that's guaranteed to run on 1MB chip Amigas.

The demo was put together in ~3-4 weeks, so please forgive me it was not tested properly. We know there're several bugs, several details are missing, some effects have room for optimizations. Expect FINAL VERSION in near future.

With reasonable level of code optimization GCC can deliver code on par with hand-written ASM. Though, you still need to look at GCC's output and learn how to write in C to generate effective m68k code.

All my A500/A600 only have 1mb (.5chip+.5fake or 1mb chip) so that explains that.

not thumb this up because of a selfvote

Also how can you have this brilliant name without the corey hart tune? :P
added on the 2014-09-22 14:00:42 by oerg866 oerg866
Doesn't look bad at all and even though the effects aren't exactly revolutionary, or even "taken to the max", they show a little bit of creativity.

That said: you won't get your thumb until you either release a 512+512 compatible version or convince me that it really can't be done. ;)

Good zik. Nice code-effects. WOuld like to see smoe more (yes I know Cahir)...

Enjoyed the demo, albeit.... well, personally I think some gfx could have been pixelized in a more smoothy, dithered, and non-ps, way.

Ha! =). The mail screen recalls me Karin Elisabeth Dreijer Andersson's (aka Fever Ray) "Fever Ray" album's cover.

Never the less a good demo. Waiting for moar. =)

I think it has in part to do with the fact that you have to explicitly select the "thumbs up" option in order to self-vote, as opposed to just leaving it at the default of the pig. It seems you're allowed to feel proud of your production, so long as you don't express it as a thumbs up. :P No such people seem to have issues with those who down-vote their own prods, but nobody said life was fair. ;)
style!
rulez added on the 2014-09-25 09:09:25 by toxie toxie
Nice graphics and groovy music. The effects are not so great but it does not matters because the demo is very well designed.

A pity that it requires a chunk of near 900K of chip memory to run so I saw it on WinUAE instead of my old A500. Please, do a version compatible with 512/512 and you'll make a lot of old machines happy.

I don't care very much but this autovote thing should be fixed now that we can add authors to the prods. I mean, authors' votes should not add to the count automatically (not even as piggies).

What Oswald said, next production really needs some heavier effects, if you need inspiration just take a look at some recent 8bit demos, e.g. this one:

Graphics, sound and sync departments as always are top notch, but what else can we expect from Ghostown? :)

It's been a couple of years since I last checked the generated 68k code from C compilers, and I was less than impressed.

rulez added on the 2015-02-01 20:59:30 by visy visy
Hello everyone! Final release is available! Enjoy watching!

What have we modified compared to party version:
- demo works on standard Amiga 500 with 512 KB chip / 512 KB slow
- most effect were optimized to work well without fast memory
- new effect control system (in spirit of GNU Rocket) was implemented
- inflate decompression routine is used to unpack bitmaps
- replayer was reconfigured to run on vertical blank interrupt
- order of effects was slightly changed
- some minor and major changes and fixes (mostly very technical)

2cahir: why not vbcc? :)
rulez added on the 2015-02-10 08:25:41 by lvd lvd
@lvd: Thanks!

Why not vbcc? I'm more familiar with GCC - as a user and a hacker (not programmer yet). GCC optimizes the code reasonably, has full control over passing function arguments in registers, has great engine for inline assembly and a few other interesting features. I understand some gcc's internals, which helps me to feed right C-code into it to render assembly programming unnecessary most of the time.
