need msvcr71.dll to run
added on the 2003-11-02 02:52:10 by quisten quisten
a linux glut version is also contained in the archive.

Very nice intro and no speed problems.
The needed dll is obviously part of the .net crap. I found the dll here

Funny: At the demonstration against our government yesterday I received also a brochure about the differences between the french and german unions. In this brochure I have found also something about José Bové and what he is doing.

Yes, quite nice. I really liked the textwriter. The music could've been better though.

"The needed dll is obviously part of the .net crap"
First of all; .NET own your all poor asses.
Second of all; msvcr71.dll is a Microsoft Visual C 7.1 DLL, meaning: it has nothing to do with .NET, even if most likely the .NET environment is coded in VS2003..

anyways the demo sucks.

the text-fader is nice, the music partly very phat and cool! :D
the overall design and colours are too "coder-like"
rulez added on the 2003-11-02 11:07:03 by elkmoose elkmoose
The music didn't suit this intro at all. But that aside, I was very impressed! The textwriter is out of this world, and the way all the contents blur and morph is just so slick.

arneweisse, thanks for your explaination. i'm not used with the win32 world. a vc6-like version for win32 will replace soon the current archive.

Random-object-wobbling overload. Nice text writer routine.
added on the 2003-11-02 12:16:59 by tomaes tomaes
the music was terrible, and the text-writer was cool but didn't fit the style of the intro. overall it was too blue/purple all the way through.. the meta-code was a little buggy but looked okay, a bit boring with only one effect though.
added on the 2003-11-02 12:53:32 by gloom gloom
first Arnold... then Bové... pop culture characters !?

imho this intro features beautiful effects and solid coding :) but these have no obvious link with the texts and political message à 2 balles... :p José Bové n'est pas poor, c'est un excellent communiquant, et sa position vis-à-vis de la science est obscurantiste, voire découlant d'un gros problème oedipien (son père est professeur de microbiologie, favorable à une recherche contrôlée des OGM...)

krabob: Actually we could live with the extra dll download, the new win32 exe is partly noticeable slower. I keep the first version ;)
added on the 2003-11-02 15:35:41 by Crest Crest
My thumb up is for coding.
Music is pathetic imho.

with synchro this would have been a real killer. thumbs up for the polished visuals anyway!

Marching cube galore, dutch colorscheme and serious coherency problems (the font, for istance). Too bad for the wasted potential...

first of all <plug what stefan said>, besides that, you've probably had the vc6 crt dll on your disk for years now. so shut up already.

besides that, excellent intro.

Thank you for once more affirming that the DSC is far from a dutch phenomenon.

Other than that, nice intro, couple of subtle things that work really well.

cool intro! The text writer is wonderful and the overall is great. Maybe textures are a bit low quality. Congrats, mankind

Very nice to have it running on Linux. Much better than others ;)

Good intro, but I think that maybe there should be some more lyrics :)

nice one, im impressed. i didn't like the music very much but i think it fits the atmosphere of the effects. looks advanced, got me stoned =>

Pretty good intro, music might need a bit of more work, but it sounded right at the partyplace. Will need to see it again at home :-)
rulez added on the 2003-11-03 19:49:43 by Jcl Jcl
An intro with a message... I liked that. Nicely coded, the music sounded much better at the partyplace than at home (maybe my speakers are too crappy).

bhead: c'mon, there are definitly demos/intros with a much uglier color scheme ;)
added on the 2003-11-07 00:27:25 by Crest Crest
The model for the guy was sorta kinda almost interesting.
rather ugly colours but effects are nice.
Really good. I like a lot the fluids effects. The text writer is very pretty but i think that the colours doesn't fit with the intro style.
rulez added on the 2003-11-10 20:32:21 by KILE KILE
I dunno if its a newverSeenBefore effect, but I liked soooo much that 3dVolumeShadeBobs, Oui! Oui! Oui! great!

jak: thanks to notice it was 3D shadebobs (and tore), but I have to greet "digital nerds", one of the best demogroup of all time for the invention of this effect (visible in one of their java applet demo.)

rulez added on the 2004-06-15 19:36:53 by wb wb
Cool, i think the colors has been selected on purpose as they're a little bit "transgenic" (or what ?). You better enjoy them right now because you might see some equally colored (and moving ?) food laying into your plate sooner than excepted.

Nice. But the music starts over after 3/4 of the demo, which is not exactly a good thing.

Really didn't like the colorscheme and the font didn't really fit, but I loved the textwriter and the liquid feel of it all.

awful dutch color scheme, boring music, visuals and texts didn't fit the effects and it result the message have no power.
Nice metaballs and fluid-like objects but there was too much of the same effect and a very abrupt ending. Music did not fit the production (slow music, fast graphics). All in all, OK.

Thumbs up for the code and the music. Coder colours aren't really my flavour in a final production, also some textures are really ugly! But overall good work.

There are some VERY ugly graphics here. Colors could have been better as well. Yet, this is a nice intro, nice and interesting to watch! Good one! And the textwriter looks indeed nice but is nothing special for me. Music was nice as well.
