Still very buggy on most nvidia-cards, we are working on it.

big thumbs up to mulms graphics. She made this demo to the best outracks-DEMO ever without loosing the cool style in duckers demos which I really like! Grats for winning the compo. Well deserved! And as allways... cool music :)

The scene on the bottom right of the screenshot (and the variations of it) is the definition of ugly.
Apart from that it's a nice summery breeze :)

Could use some more anitaliasing though.

Very, very cool gfx, and code as always. Music is good, but I'm missing a more summer-ish lead.
Very good work, congrats :)

very happy-feely demo with a cool soundtrack and good-looking visuals (on ati :) .. but why on earth did you name it "summer encounter"? :)

hm, it is a true.
Effect is not displayed by some scenes.
(my graphic board is Geforce7900GT)

but, music was nice.
video or nvidia version plz.

The redistributable needs some other redistributable which probably needs some other redistributable aswell which isn't installed on my computer.

i fully have to agree on this!

black screen on a radeon mobility 9800
This looks SO much like my kind of demo. I want to see it so badly, so please hurry with the Nvidia version!

The screens look so beautiful I'm tempted to give a thumb up in advance, but I'll wait...
nvidia version plz
as everytime, very nice ideas for demoing.....

slow as fuck, some horribly ugly parts, loads of artifacts. some good graphics and a nice tune, but it's not enough to stop my thumb. sorry.
sucks added on the 2006-07-25 18:07:56 by kusma kusma
okay, strike my comment about the slow code. i ran the demo without the power connected. now it runs faster (still sluggish in some parts tho) but the lack of vsync made some parts almost unbearable.
added on the 2006-07-25 18:20:47 by kusma kusma

The nvidia bug causing black screens out there should now be fixed. The download link is still the same. This version works fine on the gf6800 i tested it on. HOWEVER, some have reported that it runs, but most of the objects are simply MISSING. I can't explain why this happens, and its very hard to debug because it works fine on all computers i have access to now. So if you still experience problems try things in this order: 1 - download the vs8-redistributable package i posted link to earlier, 2 - update your drivers, 3 - try drivers from a third-party vendor (like omega-drivers) 4 - get an ATI card, 5 - wait for the video. Sorry about the mess.

HOWEVER, some have reported that it runs, but most of the objects are simply MISSING.

Yes, I assume that's what's happening for me on my GF6600 GT.
Duckers, here is the error message i get :
Opengl native error : 506
Frontend::Context::update line :175

I have a GeForce 6600GT with 91.31 drivers.
OS: WinXp sp2.

After the error message i see blank screen only.
added on the 2006-07-26 00:24:23 by scg_ scg_
I get the same error as scg. And blank screen with music playing.

The previous one at least worked, even if i only saw a lone skybox during 80% of the demo.

6600GT as well, with 81.98 drivers.
added on the 2006-07-26 00:38:05 by zoom zoom
same as scg. 6800go, latest drivers
For the love of jesus, why descrate the SE name with a bugfest like this.

Fix this or be ridiculed with senior pr0n pictures.

http://folk.ntnu.no/andelas/nvidia_test.rar ... Try this, nvidia-people. This file doesn't work, i have no idea what could possibly be wrong. This is just a new exe so place it with the other files
added on the 2006-07-26 01:35:51 by Duckers Duckers
First version: "OpenGL native error: 506" then black screen with music.

Updated version: windowed demo with what I guess must be a lot of missing objects and features.

WinXP + 1 Go + GF 6600 GT

nvidia is the new waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! master.

To bad I missed this, because I *so* call bullshit. Nothing here justifies the shitfest of bugs, technically speaking. It's just lousy code. This is NOT Coma on the dance floor all over.

same as keops now. i think i will wait for a video :)

once again I just simply love an outracks demo, although this had some butt ugly parts :)

it's really weird that i like the colours so much though, seeing how i normally don't like this style at all
rulez added on the 2006-07-26 10:03:04 by leijaa leijaa
THE NVIDIA BUG IS DEAD!!!! The link is updated. This version should run VERY WELL on nvidia, and if it doesn't, SHUT UP, or you will give me a breakdown and probably make me quit the scene and start sheep farming instead. Enjoy!
added on the 2006-07-26 13:49:30 by Duckers Duckers
still not working here



only LOLZ0RING!!! works fine now. great feeling in this one! what was the cause of the problem then?
rulez added on the 2006-07-26 14:10:03 by parcelshit parcelshit
a bunch of stuff.. But the bullet point of the lession is: never use uninitialized variables as reference counters XD. ATI had no problem drawing with locked ibo's, but nvidia had.

But its FIXED now and hopefully, our next demo won't get a totally raped comment-reel like this. Thanks to all of you helping me out with testing and debugging, especially proteque and zoom!
added on the 2006-07-26 14:33:59 by Duckers Duckers
havent seen it with sound yet, but deserves a thumb up for the visuals alone. nice work dudes!

technically the music, 3d and 2d are nice and we've seen what the engine is capable of, however the content is so pointlessly whacked together that it doesnt make it a decent demo... piggie.
Despite some ugly parts (the colorful bars) and the fact that it's a bit oversynced (oh well, it's outracks' trademark :) it's got nice summery vibes and teh cuteness deserves the thumb.

Duckers: Thanks, that fixed my problem. :) I wonder why I needed this though since I have VS 8 installed here.

Anyway, this is a totally cool demo, I instantly felt in love. Very nice mood here, fitting soundtrack, awesome visuals (most of the time :D). Great work, all my thumbs go up. More of this!

Gifster: I don't know about the stupidity, but your'e obviously at least a bit blind or ignorant ;). The link to the vcredist_x86 has been posted several times in this thread it should fix exactly that message. What papapete said. Nice to head that the demo seems to be working out there.. finally.

Duckers: A much cleaner solution to the "incorrect configuration"-problem is to disable the embedded manifest ("manifest file" or something under linker settings).

rulez added on the 2006-07-31 09:49:36 by hunta hunta
Cute, but it's kind of slow, most of the scenes are either too blury or too pixelized, and I don't really appreciate having to run after non installed dll's (redist + gdi plus).
On the plus side, it's shiny happy, and the music is good.

Blank Screen with music here too, even after installing the vcredist. Tried it on my laptop with a mobility X600, with no possibility to upgrade to newer drivers. Any chance you could give the people with problems a means to try and run it in windowed mode? (I see some kind of distorted logo in the 1st second, but then it all goes black)

Thanks for the video.
I recall this demo being much better at the compo, than the vidcap, thats for sure. And i see some far z issues here and there :)

I like duckers way of demos( , i really fancy the starfish) , but i didnt like the overall feel of this demo, eventhough it looks good! (great graphics mulm). Try to do some dark industrial stuff instead, that suits you better. and last, soundtrack sucks, get a grip irvin ;) (for high quality and effort, thumbs up!)

hmm. i cant remember much from the bigscreen except that it looked better than the avi-version after watching that. The colors flowed better on the bigscreen. Maybe its a demo one watches one time and then never again? But its taste is individuall.. I think its an nice demo overall. The particle part was not impressive though. Keep up the good work!

everything was just a blur.. I don't think it was intentional to have that much DOF? from what I could tell it looked nice except for the dragonfly landscape texture which had a 3d studio seemless texture collection vibe to it.. the sync was a bit hectic in true norwegian pc demo style.. maybe it was a bit immoral of you to put the Steve Irvin killer at the end of this happy demo. Great music. Balloon scene is my favourite.. Less blur and I'll give a thumb.

the blur was really really annoying, but kudos for doing such a nicely upbeat demo!

watching the video makes me think the blurring is some sort of bug, since for me it was a lot like not having glasses on and seeing the demo from 10 metres distance, while the video looks much clearer. mysterious....

There is nothing for you to do my dear except to go... Very cool demo, I love the music, too. See which way my thumb is pointing.
