ATARI suxx !
added on the 2000-09-09 11:00:49 by rez rez
no, i joke, it's a really great demo with nice effect and gfx... that demo is designed like an amiga demo, that's why i like it ;))
added on the 2000-09-09 11:01:46 by rez rez
I have seen 2-3-4 Atari demos until now.. :P

This one too! Atari St seems to me more to have Codewise demos while Amiga has Designwise. This one has great code as always, but also some nice design too!

Atari rulez definitelly! =)

This demo kicks unbelievable ass :) I can't wait to get my monitor-to-scart cable fixed, so I can see it on a real ST, in stead of a crappy emu.

by the way, quickly press ESCAPE during boot sequence to access hidden screen (the huge 3d part of the demo).

Really great demos: good music, beautiful gfx and... impressive code, of course!
I love some effects, especially the ball with the stars & the 3D bird. The hidden part is really oldschool but goodschool :)

How can I get that cylinder secret screenshot?
added on the 2004-03-26 12:48:09 by Optimus Optimus
Optimus: once the demo boots (at the very beginning) quickly press Escape key, a bouncing "hidden part" logo should then appear.
This hidden screen features many big 3d objects.

Great demo, no fullscreen in this one, but surely one of the *very* best demo ever on ST !

Looks like a copy of Amiga demos.. BTW, Amiga won the Amiga vs Atari war! ;-D
added on the 2004-06-23 23:21:05 by sprocket sprocket
sprocket: it was not a copy. It was an attempt at making usual amiga effects on Atari, without blitter/copper. The dragon was indeed an allusion to Human Target/Melon.

The demo had its own design besides the few allusions, you probably noticed it if you actually watched it, not only those screenshots.
added on the 2004-06-23 23:27:12 by keops keops
the dragonBALL I meant :)

the best demo i ever saw on Atari ! Keops you rocks !
rulez added on the 2004-06-24 13:15:14 by rez rez
Keops: I guess the dragon ball was a bit too much for me.. It's bad enough groups copied it on the Amiga, it's such a unique effect.. If you've seen it in the original, no need to see it any more.

And true, I didn't actually watch it, that's why I neither thumbed it up nor down. But I've seen a couple of ST demos, they were nice. The only one I can really remember is the one which has the chicken/egg thing which is also used in one of Budbrain's megademos.
added on the 2004-06-26 12:23:00 by sprocket sprocket
wow, the famous "sprocket" from "razordemo" has an uninformed opinion. colour us impressed...
added on the 2004-06-26 12:54:21 by havoc havoc
Some people asked us about the hidden part, therefore here are XVID versions of the demo:

Truck: use Steem emu or a REAL atari, it's even better ;)
As far as I can remember you can sometimes get weird screen flickerings with emus (not with Steem though) and the sound emulation is still not 100% accurate.

Axel: Starlion deserves half the credits for the code though, if not more.

Without him and his clever optimization ideas/trackloading system, this demo would be a pile of tricky junk codewise :)

2007, I watch an Atari demo for the first time in my life. And I fear it will be all down hill from here. This must represent a high point in the history of the atari demoscene. Great stuff in here! I'm not sure how it worked on atari, but my sources tell me that there was no blitter or copper. You poor bastards.

From memory, I remember the first pre-screener of Heftig, or what was supposed to become it being shown at the first Error in Line party which was Easter 1999.

guardian: video codec is XVID, works fine with VLC here.

Try an emulator ( http://steem.atari.st/ ) or even better, the real machine. Video captures usually ruin oldskool prods for obvious reasons :)

Very nice recreation of some classic Amiga effects, impressive to get those running so well on a standard ST!

I'm highly surprised I haven't put here any comments. It's time to fix this scandalous mistake.
THIS IS *INCREDIBLE*! FANTASTIC DEMO FOR PURE 520ST!!! It _doesn't_ even need 1Mb!!
I LOVE YOU GUYS! :) This demo shows the true power of ST series.
In my humble opinion it's the best demo for these machines, even in comparison to STe 4Mb.
Btw, I do hope Your work with ST 520 isn't finished yet!!!!!!!!

Well, I was mostly an Amiga guy, although I did at one point get a 1040STe for Cubase.

But this demo is just amazing. What I always liked about Amiga was the smooth graphics, ncie 3D and such. Atari demos never seemed to reach that level of sophistication.
But this demo does! It's just incredibly smooth, and with some pretty impressive 3D!

The music is very good as well, considering the platform, although it doesn't quite reach Amiga standards.

Finally seen this on real HW. I've thumbed it up before, but I must comment again. Now that I know a bit more about AtariST hardware, this is even more impressive, getting these Amiga-like effects running on a machine with no blitter and no copper is amazing. Either there are some HW tricks on the ST that I'm not familiar with, or this is some almost magic 68000-code to make these effects run this good (or perhaps both!) :)

Very cool demo! I ran this on Hatari.

How do I transfer the MSA file to a floppy so I can run it on my 1040 STe?
rulez added on the 2019-02-03 19:33:40 by 6BQ5 6BQ5
I was able to transfer the file. The links above got me thinking of new search terms to pump into Google Eventually I found a blog post by James Mackenzie. He shows how to break up the large MSA file into smaller chunks with ARJ. Run UnARJ on the STe to reassemble and decompress the MSA. Then I ran MSA on my STe and *voila*! :-D Very, very cool! I loved figuring this out and running the demo. My STe is NTSC (60Hz, North American) so the demo ran faster and caused my Framemeister to glitch a bit.

It's very nice. Excellent design and execution. But for 1999 there are a lot of 1990 effects.
rulez added on the 2020-02-14 21:33:23 by Nosferatu Nosferatu
Nosferatu: indeed, it's because we made it almost entirely in 1992 / 1993 but we never finished it back then (lack of motivation, studies etc) despite being almost done.
In 1999, we decided to take a few days to finish it, so we made the missing loader, added an end part and we released it.

Definitely not many 1990 effects..lol.. most of these are more like things that were appearing a year or 2 later in Amiga demos :)

Yeah... Sometimes the last 10% looks like a 200% process. And often it is!
Kudos for taking your time and finishing what has been started so many years earlier!
