Nice to see you back..

With your first demo :D

Love the physics!

nice idea and physics!

Hehe, I really enjoyed that!

How was it done? The reptile especially seems to remind me of your older intros with genetic algorithm experiments. Did you had many runs till you get a succesfull one (and I guess not for the whole trip, it could take ages, but several runs on smaller parts and then connected together), and then saved the best fit and replayed, or is it purely scripted animation?

It was very entertaining to watch anyway.

Or I guess it's just an elastic silly reptile and the physics engine, no genetic algorithm runs beforehand, I thought too much of it? :)

...sooooo fun to watch with great twists on the way...

WOW! *plenty of 909-claps*

Great physics. If you haven't animated the whole thing beforehand, how do you ensure that everything in this rube goldberg device stays in sync?

I also wish there would have been more blood. :-D

Doesn't run for me. assert.dat says:

Code:Great crash! : line 0: signal = 11,0
added on the 2017-09-10 10:57:58 by urs urs
That's what i call DEMO!
1. Decent file size (16 Mb)
2. Minimum prerecorded motion (only cars and camera)
3. Physics
4. Scenario
5. Fun
6. interactive bonus: free camera

The only thing I missed is a screen resolution selector.
Also, such textures can be rendered by texture generator, or packed into a single file at least.
rulez added on the 2017-09-10 11:02:01 by Manwe Manwe
sensenstahl:
No evolution was used. The repatetive motions for reptile legs and other joints are hand-coded functions
The frog and the vehicles were keyboard controlled and recorded.

Manwe:
- Screen resolution matches desktop resolution (you can change it), or better lower the detail level.
- The cars aren't prerecorded, only their keyboard input is stored.

hot multimedia:
Same input must give same output unless you are reading uninitialized memory. :)
Not using fsin, or simd reciptrocals, because they give different results on some CPUs. And setting compiler options not to use them either.

Ah, adjusting the desktop resolution to something less weird fixed the crash for me. Pure awesome!

This is completely beyond expectations! Even that it is usual Archee code he was researching/developing/improving over years, this is still completely fresh as a demo concept! It also shows a different face of a demoscene. Plus, it's fun to watch.

PS I wonder how many tries it took to make all the physics goes this way ;)

Let's say it wasn't the most beautiful and most demoish prod I've ever seen, yet, I was laughing all the time. I'm so happy the little dude wasn't smashed by that ball! (SPOILER ALERT!)

Also, it's funny that this comment:

It's rare that a demo brings you this much joy. I was smiling the entire way through, because of the whimsy and because of how coder design can sometimes be the point. Lovely physics, absolutely lovely concept, lovely execution and lovely music.

Great spirit enjoying full life of cubes and balls ! I've never tried to do something like that with my physic engine, since 2002, but it gives hunger like those kind of videos with precalculated millions of particles and shitty bananas...

very enjoyable and the music matches with the playfulness :)
rulez added on the 2017-09-11 15:44:18 by natalia natalia
It's a neat show and works well as a concept, but I feel that compared to what's generally possible it's also rather crude and limited in many ways; the main creatures movement doesn't have to be _that_ awkward and unrefined, and the presentation with its low-res everything looks more like something from '07 rather than '17.

Still a likeable effort and more interesting than 90% of what's being released as demos today.

rulez added on the 2017-09-11 19:42:17 by Zplex Zplex
Obtuse and tasteless beyond comprehension, as if this was intentionally made to look as unappealing as possible (that text???). The rube goldberg aspect would've been much more interesting and engaging if there actually was any presentation. Instead this opted for the most confusing audiovisual combination in the compo, though then again the humdrum nature of the music feels surprisingly apt (sorry nagz, not one of your best :)). The arrival of the bus was the only part that for a fleeting moment felt like it had any rhythm to it. Also in general what tomaes and kimi said. No thumbs down though because I smiled at okkie's comment.

Sumotori Dreams was fresh back then, but this quickly turns into a PITA to watch. Music is nice, would have deserved better visuals than a plain ugly mindcraft lookalike.

That's exactly the case when quality of gfx doesn't matter! Very good in both idea and music. To people who find it "boring" - I suppose it is the only demo you have seen so far :)

Pretty torn by this one. I really love the idea and its really fun to watch, but it does look pretty bad. Music is good and well produced but there's some chords it hits which just don't work for me, that's personal taste. Based on the visuals on youtube, I actually ran this on my Studio rig rather than my gaming rig which was OK at 720p, but the timing must be waiting for each frame to draw or something because the music ended nearly a minute before the demo did.

Can't skip physics frames to catch up with the music. You need a fast CPU for this one. (some other prods use GPU physics)

I think it would have been better with fx sounds and no music instead of music and no fx.

Seriously, lately Ive realized that most of the recent demoscene releases lacked the "something" new and original. And you hit me with this! Please do some more :)
rulez added on the 2017-09-16 07:49:39 by magellan magellan
Kudos for functional physics engine, but to me it seems like a quickly hacked kindergarden level of fun nonsense featuring basic rendering ala Roblox with far worse than optimal performance on less powerfull PCs. Motivational thumb down just in case it would help you to think out of your "box" and innovate your demos with more than just math and some retarted "story". If you have no interest in visual effects, aesthetics or at least a story with some moral value - keep it on, but it´s simply neither memorable nor interesting to someone looking for digital art in demos (read fusion of tech&art).
