Since 2013, i tried a lot of approaches in tiny intros for MSDOS, with the exception of : 3D raycasting. As a computer scientist with specialisation "computer graphics" i simply was not interested enough in manually asm-coding a brute force raycaster, with regard to already existing, excellent examples like "Spongy" (128b, TBC, 2009) and "Wolf128" (128b, Baudsurfer, 2014). However, i coded several "2,5D" effects like "Lucy" (64b, 2014) and recently "Projektbeschreibung" (32b, DESIRE, 2018). So naturally, at some point i asked myself, what is the smallest 3D raycaster which is perceived as one, being centered, having decent textures and colors, and runs on all common systems (MSDOS, FreeDos, WinXP Dos, Dosbox) while being totally smooth at least on real hardware? The (my) answer is :

49 bytes

That "pure" version is included in the archive - as well as a *42* bytes version which lacks all the criteria above. Going lower in size means that you abandon the "3D" and "raycasting" at some point, leading to something like "Floorcast" (32b, DESiRE, 2018) ... Anyway! So what to do with the "rest" of space to reach the next 2^x category - 64b?

A) "INTO A NEW ERA"

The 64b intro shown at function 2018, it has 64 gray custom colors and softclipping, trying to somewhat imitate the look of "Spongy". I had a hard time to decide between this and a dithered 85(!) shades version that flickers a bit, but shows a full tunnel (no clip)

B) "INTERACTIVE / "Wolf64"

Mouse controlled, escapable version for both real systems (FreeDos, MSDOS, WinXP Dos) and DosBox, 64b and 63b, in the spirit of "Wolf128", just in half the size ;) Don't forget to load a mouse driver on real systems! Note : these haven't been fully optimized

C) "COLORS!"

Custom Color Palettes in Blueish, Purplelish, Greenish, Yellowish, Redish, inverted, whatever, you name it. All of them are 64b or smaller. Some of them look REALLY good, but may flicker noticeably or maybe too dark which is why the released intro itself comes with safe anticodercolors ;)

Woooa!! Stunning as hell little thing. I loved it under dosbox and see what really happen in slow mode and between ;) that wolf <3 it could have been #1, I think it ended that taste made a difference between the awesome prods, a 256b looks better..

and what Sensenstahl said!
Absolutely super cool! In other hand don't forget the other competitors do the other 3 quarter of the work also :-)

Awesome winner material. If you have fitted in music and maybe some more variation, this would have won, I’m sur3 about that

uhh i used dos box i think the trasition will be looped i think
rulez added on the 2018-09-09 17:09:38 by ThonkBot ThonkBot
for dosbox, use at least 200000 cycles to get a smooth impression. the dithered 85 shades version looks best there ;)

...very cool again, need to dig into that source code...just imagine the content you could have added to fill up until 256 bytes ;-)
rulez added on the 2018-09-10 10:38:17 by Kuemmel Kuemmel
massive achievement
next time just combine 3 effects like this plus sound and kill the category for good :D

In 64 bytes? Degrading. I should end up this profession ;-)

That's a nice 64 bytes. Would be nice to see something done with the rest of the 192 though...

Thanks for all the comments :) To all of you motivating me to produce an intro with equal density but in 256b, i hear you =) i might do that in the future

For now, check the INTERACTIVE VERSION (mouse controlled, escapable and still 64 bytes or smaller)

Wolf64 / Interactive / FreeDos

As described here you can now run x86 asm directly in a browser (dosbox) which would result in this 64 byte raycaster actually being tweetable (link with code in less than 140 chars) if only the link would world properly :D

http://twt86.co?c=sBPNEGj2n7rJAwfu7u48P3QBQOL2H7H3iMu4zcz3541HsADw9uuS9uuI8DDgKh 5sBAQEINioGOHfDPwoyKri1g%3D%3D

For now, you still have to manually paste the source and hit "run". I hope this gets fixed soon =)
