good job...
i'm sad this demo don't work on my 68040, i have to plug back my 68030 to watch it
added on the 2001-04-25 11:16:47 by Tex Tex
nice atmospheric drum'n'bass by yolk & legend... otherwise, well done 3D stuff, too slow on 030, so strange it dont work on 040.

I could see it now on a 68030 and it wasn't to slow. Very good demo, also compared with the best pc demos from that time

yup, a classic it is.

was an above average production when it came out, and was no doubt it would win TP.
For 040/060 users there should be a patch on aminet.
rulez added on the 2002-11-08 11:32:30 by teo teo

well now when i managed to run it on 040 thumbs up for the smoothness =]

crest -> yes its not THAT slow on 030 all in all but some parts are rather slowed down interrupting the flow which is so must for 3D|emos

Very nice feeling. Music and visuals are excellent.

great d'n'b music (Yolk+Legend).
one of my favourite Amiga demos.

Didn't appeal to me at all. It lacked all the cinematic quality and style of previous Bomb/Complex demos. Even though some of the scenes looked quite nice, they seemed to be thrown together without much thought, and the music just sounded out of place.

thumb up for the excellent music and maybe the most beautiful bumpmap to date :) features some ugly 3d tho

Gahh another lost vote of mine :)
I really like Shaft7 and ran perfectly fine on my 030/50 which i had at the time of it's release.
Great gfx from Made as well i do like his works. Sound i liked also.

cool music \o/ cool 3d scenes

Refuses to run properly on my 060 but it was nice to watch at the partyplace.

It ruled so much at The Party. Cool visuals and earcatching soundtrack.

argh! that music! one of my all time favourites

now playing: temple of sun remix

wade, shaft7 was originally a melting pot production (ben+axel), and then conveted to bomb label when made contributed and ben+axel joined bomb just before the release. the style you are refereing to is quite obviously the one from gengis+hof+titan+clawz.
rulez added on the 2005-10-04 23:39:12 by winden winden
Now why did this win? :-) Amazing show! The music is one of my favorites by yolk & legend.

I loved this back then. Was pretty fast on my 030/50, so Raver, buy a new 030 then! :)
rulez added on the 2006-01-20 11:26:31 by StingRay StingRay
loved the speed in this one and the chocolate candy bump looks great..
rulez added on the 2006-01-21 00:11:14 by loaderror loaderror
ruuulezz, roxxx, maybe my fave prod on accelerated 1200 !!!
the envmap texture by Titans (durring the bump object) is maybe the best one i ever seen.

Arte + Nexus7 + Shaft7 -----> the count is right ^^

The atmosphere is just amazing...and i love the soundtrack done by Yolk & Legend (the track name is Temple Of Sun)

A real masterpiece!
rulez added on the 2006-10-24 00:59:09 by orb orb
Soundtrack roxx. The demo is a nightmare to get it workin' properly under my 060.
If it all works well you get a nice trip ;)

music, text font, credits with extruded and light map, 3Ds with texture mapping
rulez added on the 2007-10-16 16:54:14 by BITS BITS

The music alone deserves a thumb up. The 3D is decent, and the bumpmap at the end is one of the best looking I've ever seen.

Loved this demo before, but now it barely gets an ok. Some samples in the music didn't match together at all... The bumpmapping got you a piggy;)

I never liked this demo much. Uninteresting 3D scenes, and the music is without momentum.

I was on bustrip with all of them, and they finished the demo on a hurry at party place :)

how the heck havent i ever seen this before today?
excellent coding by Ben (of which no1 had ever heard before this demo, which was some sort of comeback of Bomb, whose coder Gengiz left for PC long before, so Bomb Amiga was considered dead already), paired with excellent textures and Graphics, worthy Winner i´d say!

Don't get the music at all, nor the low-precision texture mapped objects. But everything else is a great fight in the polybump war of the time, so here's the thumb.

funny to read that every new motorola cpu requires new fix for this demo, but I have fond memories back from the times so I give it a missing thumb-up anyway

Actually there's a whdload patch which makes it work on 060 and probably everything else

This marks the pinnacle of the 68030 3D-era. Still a joy to watch today due to excellent graphics, sound, and direction.

Good memories!

Had to finish and pack the demo during the party, quite some sleepless nights ... Also, while running to deliver the demo disks, we lost them in the middle of a dark room filled with passers-by! We gave them 2 minutes past the deadline, the organizer was about to refuse the entry, and we had an angry argument :)
The demo was with ridden with last minute bugs and would crash randomly. Got lucky it went smooth on the big screen :)

By the way, neither Yolk nor Legend knew we used their track, so we looked for them before the compo was screened and showed them the demo (at least Yolk, iirc.) I think he was not too enthusiastic or impressed, but winning the compo changed the mindset, I'd say :) We even tried to escape the party without paying their fair share like the greedy french bastards we were, but they caught us at the exit anyway :)

Fun time!

Ben : great to have some BG stories. This demo came out of nowhere. Question I had for you : did you release anything before this and why did you stop after that ?
added on the 2021-06-22 14:14:54 by nytrik nytrik
Ben: yeah I think we weren't very enthusiastic because you already had made the demo etc :´D - but all was and is well. Good memories.
