 ù Nice randomizing effects, especially the snow with self drawing title screen.
   However, only the shifted keys are recognized, otherwise it ends the demo,
   which can be irritating.
 ù Thanks for taking part!
 ù Colourful, many classic effects and several scenes. The christmas theme was
   fun, but the music lacking. With stronger music this would have been a much
   stronger prod. Sorry to hear your PC died!
 ù Its this jolly time of the year, where another bits prod lands in TMDC. 
   Happy Christmas too! +20 for the consistent yearly contribution.
 ù Random data send to adlib is not music. Blinking characters in snow screen
   felt like someone forgot to turn off blink via the display controller. The
   plasma was very nice, as was the TMDC20 sine motion; same goes for the BITS
   section. End scroller is actually very good, probably best seen in a BITS
   demo. You know, with actual music, this could have been a really cute, sweet
   little demo.

 ù Good flow, nice effects, nice music. I especially like the background with
   the palette of square characters. It could have been improved with some kind
   of theme or something, to glue it all together.
 ù Oh yeah, a compofi...thriller! Nice collection of FX.
 ù Strong tune! Some really great effects, but the color scheme could use some
 ù Pretty good for a quick compofiller, trippy colors with good contrast helping
   to see the raytraced effects pretty well.
 ù Raymarching and distance fields FTW! Bonus points for using a tracked music
   format ;-) Bonus points for attempting custom text effects. Nice take on
   traditional tunnels.

 ù Very high polish, very nice graphics and music. But it ends when I thought it
   was actually starting!
 ù Nice lighting & palettes, very smooth. Music doesn't seem to fit.
 ù Short and sweet... very strong synch. OpenGL was a sweet touch. I wish it had
   been longer.
 ù Nice transition from an initial B&W expectation, to color. Suitable music.
 ù Very nice custom text rendering. Irrational CPU use -- uses 100% of all 12
   cores on my system?! Wish it were longer. OpenGL version nice touch and was
   great to run a second time for verification!

 ù Very good use of the theme. Very cohesive. Sadly, the converter seems to have
   some glitches here and there. But it really shows towards the end when all 
   the convertion modes are shown successively. Maybe this could have been used
   pushed further.
 ù Solid demo overall. Colors looked rather bland and dirty, but nice words
   about them.
 ù Listen to me carfully... this ia an good prod. Mad props for a loader bar!!!
   Great sequencing, great effects, great synch! Especially at the end.
 ù The narration is adding more flesh to sometimes abstract visuals of textmode
   compos. I like.
 ù High marks for design and concept. Lower marks for disappointing text
   rendering until the very end.

 ù Pretty nonstandard to have a demo mainly constituted of a .BAT. Kudos for
   creativity here. However editing the palette isn't allowed, and the file had
   to be edited with cmdmp3win being called with "start". Also, the music has to
   be killed be manually killed when exiting.
 ù One of the parts was "illegal function call" error. Thanks for taking part!
 ù Quickbasic 4.5 is so much fun! It was really sweet to see this prod, and I
   hope they come back for future compos with more!
 ù No XP/Vista machine to try it out. Slow & silent in DosBox.
 ù Should probably be disqualified as music was not original (appears to be a
   Pokemon cover?). Could not run on Windows XP, got message "upal.exe cannot
   start or run due to incompatibility with 64-bit versions of Windows". Ran in
   DOSBox after modifying batch file to not start music. One effect, plasma, was
   excrutiagingly slow and unoptimized.

 ù I suppose the joke is fun but sadly, I spent way too much time trying to make
   it work, and I'm still missing packages. Linux hell! :)
 ù Linux, download from the web. But well yeah, got the message, you dont like
   proprietary platforms. Cheers :)
 ù Cute joke prod, but disqualified, as it requires an operating system not
   allowed by the competition, and also accesses the internet.
