another smashing oldschool pc demo, great effects, cool music...
added on the 2000-09-09 16:11:40 by rez rez
One of my favorite demos from the old PC demoscene. - Hmm,.. I have a long time to watch some old PC demos now I am thinking it :/
added on the 2000-12-14 15:35:24 by Optimus Optimus
Text appears: "640Kb memory should be enough for everybody - Bill Gates 1981". Then Bill Gates' face gets distorted like in a washing machine... Demo's best part? Probably! :-) I'd like to have been on the party place when they showed THAT! :-)

a worthy winner of the asm94 democompo, great effects (the julias and the cave rocked), and a wonderful soundtrack by whalebone.

this was the first demo i saw, and it got me shocked for weeks. I couldn't understand how a computer could do those morphing IFS fractals at the beginning.
a great demo for it's time.

Nostalgia...
rulezadded on the 2001-10-22 14:48:53 by Optimus Optimus
Ah, I love this demo... The Bill Gates part is leet. All these oldskool demos show some kind of innovative spirit and are full of ideas. Today everything is about 3D/more effects/brighter/faster

This one has got some STYLE :)
rulezadded on the 2001-11-30 01:30:53 by Madi Madi
If this is the demo that starts off with "Is everybody in" from Jim Morrison, then I'll give it a thumbs up ;-)

One of my favourite dos demos introducing the Washing Bill Gates effect :)) Very good , get it at once
rulezadded on the 2001-12-03 03:37:57 by zafos zafos
Yeah. Cool one.
A few months ago, I noticed that there is a bugfixed version, so I was finally able to watch the whole thing (the party version just crashes after 30 seconds...).

rulezadded on the 2002-03-06 21:17:59 by moT moT
yeah! I saw this one years and years ago! Right now, I can only get it sorta-workig on my modern PC without sound, so I have no idea what the music sounds like (can't remember)... I'd love to see a Win32 port or a Divx/MPEG version.

a good demo, liked it a lot back then. though, i do remember liking some demos more than this at asm94.
rulezadded on the 2002-03-07 23:50:51 by nosfe nosfe
I never knew what the fuss was with this one, other than the funny bill gates quote and effect. I actually liked EMF's other productions quite a bit better.
added on the 2002-03-09 00:59:22 by bigcheese bigcheese
I like this demo very much, but the BillGatesPart is shit in my eyes. There are much better effects and a stretched face..., ok the stretching is quite perfect. Overall the demo is one of the best ever.
rulezadded on the 2002-05-08 20:41:35 by René Madenmann René Madenmann
that "Bill Gates scene" is just great :)
rulezadded on the 2002-05-09 12:17:32 by dairos dairos
is everybody in? IS EVERYBODY IN?
mr Gates aside, which part is pretty cheap, this one roolz big time. EMF was just so good...

Great demo with a typical demotune. Probably the first demo with this face stretching and distorting, quite much demos with similar effects followed. But nothing beats the original :)

Cool music, some nice effects. =)

Oh yea, I remember this one... Nice hires IFS fractals, a voxel (or whatever it was) tunnel, and some other cool stuff.

After seeing it dozens of times I'm not nearly as tired of it as I'm with Second Reality (even though I like SR better). But the Bill Gates part _is_ lame.
rulezadded on the 2003-03-09 06:19:52 by DiamonDie DiamonDie
I like this one of the best dos demos. And the Bill Gates part is not lame, even considering the fact that he never said that 640kb statement. :)
rulezadded on the 2003-11-02 15:07:59 by megamies megamies
MegaMies: he stated it at 1981. http://www.thocp.net/timeline/1981.htm

...and yes - verses rocked big time around '94/95

It had everything, and still people voted Second Reality in the charts afterwards - well .. This one was a more than worthy winner at asm94.

Kick'd!
rulezadded on the 2004-05-12 19:57:51 by d3pth d3pth
Oldschool (at least for me) in it's purest form. Good music, varied effects and all that stuff that makes me want to be five years older so I'd lived there... :) One of the best IFS morphers ever, in my opinion.
