I also think this is a good demo, although it has been a while since I watched it. Had some pretty good stuff in it. I'll see if I can upload a screenshot soon.
It was big (4 disks) and it was nice. ;)

I met the Alcatraz guys at ASM94. They had a _bunch_ of copies of Ilyad and were trying to find out which discs worked on my A1200. I don't remember how many discs the demo was on but there were like 4-5 copies of each and almost none of them works.

Thumbs up for being better than terrible despite being a '94 AGA release. :)

And RIP @ Hornet, of course.

Dont know how long we laughed at the soundtrack but it still makes me smile, especially the credits part. *KABOOM*

Has a few nice effects (like the vector tunnel f.e.) but doesn't really work for me. The rather bad music might have something to do with that.

This is like Odyssey remake but with bad music, and no story. To bad :(

very disjoint

I liked the pics and the distorted torus though
Had some impressive effects for its time. Music is really horrible though. What were they thinking :O

Wtf? No matter what I do, it asks me "Please insert Disk 1".
The demo comes in a format to run from HD. Initially not even a message. I even updated with the latest patch. That showed a message to install xpkmaster library. I thought that was it. Then the disk 1 message. I tried some assign stuff, not knowing what I am doing, then copied disk1 files and executable to floppy. If it's made for HD why it still searches for floppy? Makes me want to try to download ADFs if they are still around.

I had some breakthrough making it start working but it crashes later.

Initially I copied files 1/2/3/4 in Disk1/2/3/4 folders
Assign Ilyad1: Disk1
Assign Ilyad2: Disk2
Assign Ilyad3: Disk3
Assign Ilyad4: Disk4

Demo starts with talking 3d dots head, then tries to fade to space background and shows message "Error: File not found"


I tried keeping the old Ilyad folder and asssigning all Ilyad 1/2/3/4 to the same folder. Still the same.

I guess I'll find the disk files and write them and see their contents. Too much fail and no instructions to run this from HD.

Write 4 DMS files to floppies.
Oh there is install to HD too.
I do it, something went wrong, maybe I moved the folder or not.
Anyway, I did Assign by hand again. But it was on S too.
It finally worked.

Some nice efffects, too many animations (4 disks for that? I know other demos with animations and more content that are 1-2 disks). The 3d stuff were good though for the time. But too disjointed, not as good as previous stuff.
