While "Captured Dreams" beats it in technical aspects, Tint wins in freshness and personality. The funky soundtrack by Azazel and the many pixelled portraits (as opposed to the Photoshop efforts found in the later) contribute a lot to its authentic "feeling". Without any doubt one of the finest demos ever made, and one which no scener worth its salt can afford to miss.

"where is the key, to unlock all my dreams..."

i guess the look-we-can-display-all-colors-tbl-style started with this cool demo. this demo are 12mins of pure fun, cool music (which ends a bit too early, so the endscroller got no sound)
, cool fx and nice gfx.(mainly danny's typical girls). it's indeed one of the best aga-amiga demos ever made...

wow... what a great demo =) ..it´s still my number one and it was my reason to be interested in the (amiga)scene. now i´m a proud member of two groups.. and i can say without you (TBL) it won´t be like it is.. :) i thank u 4 this and the other great products!

The return of Danny and Facet after a long absence, and the demo that made TBL a household name among sceners.

It was good to see a demo that finally put the AGA chipset to some use.

Man, this is a real upper. The beginning always gets me smiling ;) "do you like....". It's long, but it is one of the rare demos where this is not a problem.
rulezadded on the 2002-05-28 09:09:06 by Delax Delax
Still being one of the best productions on the global scene ever. Fantastic graphics, amazing music and effects, and the old war between 1x1 vs 2x2 effects between TBL and Artwork coders. Maybe Captured Dreams was best tecnically, but maybe TBL don't made a production with better feeling than that in all these years.

Simply amazing! One of the only 2x2 demos i can bear to look at ;)

Optimus: it works with the latest winUAE (0.8.22r5) atleast. Try the usual stuff - no startup-sequence / different configs.

The colours are ugly like hell and I've never heard cheesier soundtrack than this but still Tint somehow manages to have huge appeal. If not for the silly typography my thumb goes alone for the end scroller song.

One of my all time favorites. A long demo that somehow seems to get better all the way through, and save the best for the last part.

A true classic!

One of my all-time favourites. I love the tunnels, and the song still gives me goosebumps. Pity I have to turn of cache to avoid crashes on 060; I seem to recall it was smoother on my 030.
rulezadded on the 2003-05-23 13:21:35 by Betong Betong
strange, works fine just w/ cleanboot on my 060
added on the 2003-05-23 14:56:34 by jar jar
cleanboot 060 = no cache = slow

this is the perfect amiga-pop demo. esp. the last tune together wiith the overlaid effects on rodneys picture are unequaled.
too bad the scroller is longer than the song.
rulezadded on the 2003-05-23 16:43:32 by noname noname
for long time it was my favourite demo.
it's still fun to watch it nowadays.
18bit truecolor mode...
rulezadded on the 2003-05-28 13:25:58 by teo teo
Without question one of the best demos ever made on the Amiga.

Actually it works on 060 but not 060's on PPC boards. Turning off the data cache works though but then of course the framerate drops. I wish someone would make a patch.

This is my favorite demo! In my opinion this is the best demo there is that I am aware of. First of all it has pretty nice musics. Second of all, the effects were really neat, especially the tv-blur and the tunnels and all. The pictures are just incredible! But best of all, this demo has lots and lots of cheerful spring energy that keeps me wanting to watch it over and over again! No other demo can accomplish all these feats at the same time - at least so far from what I have seen.
Also, the demo lasts like 12 minutes or so, it has so many different effects, the transitions are brilliant, and the only thing that I can find at fault at it is that it doesn't work fully with my 1Ghz PC with WinUAE.. *sob* So I guess I will have to just watch the video.. Anyway, a GREAT demo, deserves all the thumbs up there are!

Easily my all-time favorite demo. Not only does it have loads of effects that most people would think impossible at the time. It is also stuffed with beautiful graphics and perfect transitions all the way, and best of all, has a superb soundtrack. This is the true meaning of demo.

I was crying when I saw it for the first time.

Impressive technically, facet and Louie 2d gfx are awesome, I dig the Reflection map effect and the scroller with Facet's TBL picture.

one of my fave a1200 demos... and i fully agree with most of the comments... can not believe it is 10 years old now... it was my inspiration in many ways... TBL rocked... and the euro pop at the end was a killer... :)

i had another hungaryian production with a female singer mod? anybody nows that?

I always think this one was really too much overrated. Sure it contains some great fx, cool gfx, but I always found it a lot boring.
No thumb down, because the last music of Azazel save a little from this demo and IIRC the girl that sing was a friend of Azazel !
And yeah, no thumb down also because I will never be able to do that at that time ^^!
But, well boring one...
