a really cool intro ! i love the tunnel effects and of course that great "TV-tree" =)
added on the 2000-09-09 16:33:24 by rez rez
the tree is one of the koolest fx i've ever seen =)

Nice one with some nice effects. 3state class!
Funny, I find it to be a very unimpressive intro. Matter of taste, I guess

the best intro from the year 2000. DOPE design!
added on the 2001-01-23 05:40:53 by chavez chavez
Great intro!
Fave fx are the one with the strange tunnel, the part with many 3d people, and the final with the tree!

very well designed, the music sucks a lot, good effects, i like it
Some find it boring, but I like it. Good mix of "minimal" design with unique effects. The TV tree is one-of-a-kind. Distance's music helps it out too. BTW, be sure you have "fog table emulation" enabled in your D3D setup, or else the "mass media" part may not work.

the tree is nice. but for the rest it's just some random effects in a random order. to me. i don't understand why a continuous boring light-blue background is called 'design'. let alone 'kick-ass design'. to me this looks like lots of effects i've seen lots of times before just now with a plain blue background.

3state have made 4687x better stuff, imho.

Great,like all 3state prods,but lately,i face a really crazy thing...the intro freezes,the music plays all the way,but if i hold 'enter' pressed,the gfx start going!What the heck is that????Before some days the intro was ok,but now????What is goin'on...This is happening to h3o too.
Really crazy thing!!!

I enjoyed this one quite a lot, especially the realy cool tree part near the end.

Great intro with great design and a monotonous, repetitve but still kicking soundtrack (distance at his best). The only thing I dislike a little are the poser-statements in the intro and the nfo-file, that imho dont fit a production with such a cool style.
rulez added on the 2001-12-19 18:35:41 by heman heman
One of the best intros ever, combining glorious design with impressive effects.

Just beautiful.

"effect of the year"
"cheap imitations suck"
"hard facts - we are better"
high claims, where's the proof?

too plain a color scheme, dull music and lack of cool effects (the fractaltree was ok, tho)
...but it's not _that_ bad, it can be watched one or two times

again, it doesnt go on unless i move mouse, same thing as for h3o breather - i have to move mouse to get the show going (and seems like Raoul_Duke is having a similar prob stated in post above)..

i suspect 3state to use some strange synchro method ;D however this time i got hooked on it and moved my mouse like an idiot during whole intro. was worth it - nice one.

rulez added on the 2002-11-08 12:01:22 by raver raver
raver, raoul_duke: an old trick from the days we were playing doom.
Get a small piece of paper - or pencil eraser, or something - and use it to stuck your SHIFT key in pressed state. thus you can watch the demo without any unnecessary physical acitvities.

I love this demo anyways ;)

haha foolman - rite! back in the days we were cracking games on speccy with my mate and thats how he got his former hande mc hammer - he used to clear datablocks in disk doctor (there was no fill function) by placing hammer on 0 key. speed = ~0.5 sectors per minute!

Nice, nice, nice. A bit plain, but in a good way.. especially the tree part rules.

We were for sure this would beat our please the cookie thing, it looked great, fresh and original during the compo. And it still does!

Nice stuff.. it still looks cool, but back in the day it was really on the top.
Now, for some reason, it only runs if I keep a key pressed down... funny, but at least it runs. let's blame MS for the complicated win32 api ;)

Also one of the first PC intros I ever saw, has a special place in my heart.

I have the same problem where it won't run unless it's constantly receiving a mouse or keyboard event every frame :(

Does not run unless I press a key or move the mouse, and then it finally crashes. meh. I liked what I saw, though.

good, but i'm happy people left this style behind with the early 2000s :)

I lost my thumb. Will give you back your explosives if I get back my thumb.
By the way.

Any hints about the strange "bug": "move the mouse to see 3s intros moving" ?
well, for now I'll keep fiddling the touchpad :)

or maybe creating a small program simulating mouse movements :)

Timeless design is timeless, sure some scenes didn't age that well, but look at the filesize, then look back to your calendar - it's 12 years now. Nice.
rulez added on the 2012-12-15 12:01:18 by mog mog
Want to stand out? Do it like this. Some of the best design of it's era, perfectly complimented by the code. Music is... alright; the samples suck and the interpolation kills them further.

nice style as usual, however one of the worst distance tracks i've heard.
