a well done 3d-accelerated demos, the scenes are good, music too (good rip from Astral Projection)...

watch on movie theatre with surround sound and you might understand why this demo rules so much.

Origin, a really kicking ass demo. Good music (rez, you're right, sound like Astral Projection) made by Archon. The first time i watched it was a the LTP3, on the big screen with a big sound system. I swear you, I'll be marked for ever.

Get yourself an SBLive! or EAX compatible and enjoy. Great graphics ('99) and cool audio.
Yupp nice 3d-show.
I really like the tunnel and the finish of the demo :^)

I've just seen this demo for the first time : Wow, the sound-system is great, it's like adding a new dimension! Too bad that i've heard this kind of "effect" only in this (old) demo so far.

just a fast 3d show, nothing more. the 2d graphics were ok, although the textures seemed out of place (a mirror-brick-floor?).

Fantastick, fast 3D demo. Very nice effects like tunnel - on screen. Very good one big (but not stupid flyby !!!) 3D scene. I like this too much. Two thumbs up

Yeah, it rules! Very good 3d models and it really looks like a lot of time was spent on it.

Just watched this demo after one or maybe two years since I last saw it.
Very nice demo indeed!! to bad there are so few comments on this one.

Well, then let's change this about the comments on this one here! ;-)
I also like this piece of demo really much! It gives a great atmosphere and the 3D sound fx are well done and fitting! Also like the pyramid-explosion fx and the 'red line' which lead through the whole demo!
Really nice work all the dudes of Astroidea did here!
Sad to see that there haven't been more demos from them after this one so far! :-/
Oh well...

Construction of skillful 3D scene which used the cylinder.
And Good music.
This demo is OK!!

Good overall quality...
And ofcourse the surround sound in the starfield is mighty :)
I really like this one...
Too bad it won't switch to 640x480, so it runs in the top-left corner of my desktop if I don't switch manually though :)
But hey, I'm willing to do that by hand, it's cool enough :)

thanks to everyone for your comments, nice to see that people actually watched what we did :)

as a thank-you-gift, i made a small videoconfig utility: ftp://ftp.demoscene.hu/demoscene/groups/astroidea/ai_oconf.zip

dont forget to backup the original exe, the config util is directly modifying it! (i dont have the sources anymore :(( )

also be careful what you set, no verification is performed!

Not impressive neither a piece of crap. Maybe in 1999 could be nice, but now it's just another 3D player from 1999... And I didn't like the 2D gfx

Pretty decent. Kinda shows it's age a bit.

boring 3d and music (for nowadays), but some very good textures and 2D GFX in there

has 3d sound, looks pretty 98-ish yet still quite nice to watch even today
