terrible gfx

This was fun. ZX style is strong in this one.

Wow! thank you! this is a very nice way to see (thanks to youtube) rasters & splitrasters in action on your platform. I like also the work on gfx (nice way again to see what character mode can do (with rasters)). Just a question, reading the nfo: sync is done for Pentagon128 only? which means: (split-)rasters timings are fucked up on other ZX (Sinclair one's, etc)?

Excellent demo! I am delighted!

What can I add? Proper good ZX demo!

A stunning demo that will serve as a reference point for many future demos messing with "rasters" (no-one calls them that on Spectrum :) ). My personal highlights are rotating circles scene and amazing soundtrack. The demo shows massive amounts of dedication and love and it is always great to see. Shame that a lot of it cannot possibly done on classic Spectrums (e.g. the rotating circles), but then again it is so nice it had to be done no matter what.

Great tune, cool effects, well done bitmaps all around. Many effects unlike most spectrum demo effects so that's always refreshing.

Up for a great demo. But is this Pentagon w/ gigascreen only?
rulez added on the 2016-08-29 12:01:37 by Factor6 Factor6
This is massive with great soundtrack and art. I saw more colors than Specturm, is it the flickery tricks? I am gonna try on emul.
rulez added on the 2016-08-29 12:22:47 by Optimus Optimus
Optimus, you're right - this is gigascreen. And note that the main idea of this demo is fullscreen scenes, with border activity.
added on the 2016-08-29 12:30:41 by zeebr zeebr
I didn't know about gigascreen but I read on the wiki, it makes sense now. Still cool demo.

normal (flic) YouTube

I think it should be honest to provide both flic and no-flic videos for sucha type of releases.
i love it! the synch, the fast pace, the graphics, the music...

Well, Eye Ache by codebusters ironically gave me less eye-cancer than this and also features neat border effects.

unbeliever, what the hell is that? your youtube-version is wrong and does not contain source colors. We need someone who can record the demo on cam from real pentagon. Anybody?

Exin, your irony is clear to us) but i advise you to watch the demo on real hw for understanding that the flickers are not so harmfully for your eyes and brains)

I really dislike the fake emulator-blended videos that are posted for many of these "gigascreen" demos. To me it seems like unbelievers video is closer to what you see on real hw than the original youtube.

Still, nice border stuff!

awesome on all aspects: design, music, code.

its hard to see where the borders, the loading screen in the vid can be used as reference ? some stuff seems way too hires, like the dj guys with rotating yellow and purple stripes. how is that done ?

That's not breaking the borders - this is smashing them into pieces!

Massive pack of very good border fx with pleasant and bright soundtrack. A lot of parts looks really cool at the big screen. And yeah, unfortunately it is only a Pentagon demo, and some fx can't be done on a classic hardware. But still it was a cool show.

Deserved one or more thumbs up for this great gigascreen pentagon demo - pretty good design, sync and flow, nice gfx and cool nq's music. Rage kickasser with such mindblowing border-paper rules broken!

Just one note: You better watch your grandiloquent statements in YT video description that states of usage standard speccy features but it's time to pentagon only that you haven't time to fix for speccy...?
so, definitelly not, because this demo is for slightly different computer which allows all what we can't do on our old good speccy 128k - you haven't slower access to some places of RAM and all those contention issues, you can change border color anytime off the 8ths, and put your interrupt vector anywhere. ;))

took me so long to make a comment due to deep thought about zx demoscene on the whole.
now i can say with certainty that it's quite a deserved winner. great breakthrough effects, good pace with a nice soundtrack, as been said. it lacks microsync and a bit tightened in a few spots but overall effect smoothes everything.
thanks for this demo and waiting for the next!
