yeah... it was really time to add this marvellous demo here! in my eyes still one of the most impressive megademos ever done on the ST...

this is a mythic megademo
it features some excellent pics by Spaz
and the main menu is simply AMAZING

a must see

wow. the last few coup de coeur's were all a little bit strange, but this one is an absolute ruler. can still remember how it was when i first saw it at the atari fair in germany. a real atari-style demo including menu and loader screen, great music, unique and brilliant effect and some more or less hidden stuff. not talking about the great pictures.

one of the few demos that made me really belief in the Atari ST.

next coup de coeur is "dark side of the spoon"? or perhaps a demo that at least some people know...

"next coup de coeur is "dark side of the spoon"? or perhaps a demo that at least some people know..."

>>what is a coup de coeur ?
a coup de coeur is a french expression a bit hard to explain in english, at least for me ^^;
in the pouët.net case, just think of it like a kickass but not well known

The 'coup de coeur' is simply a demo that analogue likes. It's purely subjective so trying to find quality or fame criterias is pointless.

Yeah.. Tyrem on pouet! :) But god should really bless the Lost Boys, not me. I was just a little guy taking part in this project. All the guys used to live here in my flat... but I guess all you ST-Fans know that story allready. It is great to see that the demo still touches people from all over the world.

Right now I´m in close contact with Mad Max of Tex. Maybe you will see something from us in the near future. ;)
added on the 2001-10-12 22:19:45 by Tyrem Tyrem
Something new from MadMax ?
Would be cool, especially if it's ST stuff. :)
rulez added on the 2001-10-16 14:49:30 by Dma-Sc Dma-Sc
Yeah... he still has great tunes on his good old ST... which really sound incredible. Mad Max is a true mastermind. Would be a shame not to release those songs. I´ll kick his ass as soon as I see him. :)

Oh, it's not only a demo, it's a DREAM !!!
rulez added on the 2002-02-24 20:38:02 by ptif ptif
Clearly, the Oh Crikey is one of the best demo ever made on the Atari. Instead of purely technical effects, there is a lot of research in both graphical and sound department. And remark that the musics were made specialy for the demo: no ripping !
rulez added on the 2002-07-31 18:55:16 by Dbug Dbug
really great demo, very nicely put together with spaz's intro screens for each effect.
i'm still waiting for the expansion disk though ;-)
rulez added on the 2002-12-07 17:55:04 by mrpink mrpink
Yeah! I also think that landscape simulator menu rules..

great. i didn't see this till early 98. I regret so much i didn't get this demo earlier.
the fx are cool, but it's just the whole feeling. it's radical stuff!

I ran this demo on SainT and it stopped at the title screen w/ no music. I hit spacebar and it jumped to the end credits. Is this normal?
added on the 2003-03-09 12:48:13 by Hunsvotti Hunsvotti
I downloaded SainT just to see this... Well worth my time. I put the intro music on a music CD, though I shortened it. I especially like "Homishe Sacratten Von Der Hohle" Kickin' music! ('zat spelled right?)

hehe, the menu rocks :)

Plenty of wonderful extra details inside the superb menu, fantastic graphics and effects. I like it, even though I have to use the cheat to get to the demo screens.

One of the most polished of ST demos, none of the overscan tricks that other groups were doing, but the emphasis is on showing their more system-friendly game developer chops. Catchy tunes (esp. that techno demo) and great hand-drawn graphics by Spaz. I hung out with Manikin and Digital Insanity for a couple days when they came to the US. Cool guys and even seemed to like some of the lame junk I was starting to do on the Amiga. If you like Car Bear mutilation, this ones for you.

Forgot to give it a thumb up. One of the best atari demos of course.

of course, just excellent!

I don't really like menu demos, and I particularly don't like the menu in this one. Funny, but a pain in the arse until you learn to control the ship. The cheeky comments when you crash don't make it any better.
OTOH, it's got loads and loads of Mad Max tunes, and some nice effects (particularly the starfield in the reset part), which make it a sure thumb-upper.

Great entertainment! Nice main menu with an easy to find cheatmode if you read all the text in the reset demo :) But real men never cheat, flying through the landscape is much more fun! :)

how does one get to the hidden screen then?

You can't get the hidden-screen from the demo. You must use a loader-
program. You can find it on the stuff-disc of undercover mag issue 01.

And since I forgot to thumb it up as i added it 5 years ago, I do it now... better late then never! ;)

note that the pilot of the ship is going to take a piss after landing a few times :)
Really great demo.

Everything fits into place in this one. The loader has some of the best pixel effects I've ever seen :)

Also, the first megadedmo I ever saw. Fab

hehe - I just remember ... when they released it at the atari fair we grabbed one exemplar and I whacked the whole night to rip ALL Mad Max musaxxs - exactly ONE day after official release we had a demo with all of the musaxxs in it (including the hidden screen track) ... damn ... that's 16 years ago ... anyway ... loved the time ;)

that's the story so far - nearly forgot to give my whole respect to this masterpiece of 68k asm ...

+ unbelievable great main menu
+ great technically brilliant screens
+ uber musaxxs
+ aso.

so ... here's the thumb ;)

Manikin is now technical director for Sony Santa Monica and was lead programmer on the megahit God of War games. So making limited hardware do amazing things really does pay off in the end. Eat your Wheaties kids.
