Demo Conversions rules! From the time I have seen this, there were several times I was just imagining how can we do it on Amstrad CPC. (I am interested working for Amstrad CPC Second Reality in the future very much..)

Although it's not that favorite of mine. Some of the effects use blocky pixels and they use them ugly and I don't like it..

Some of the parts are not as good converted as I wanted.

But still a hard and cool work to do such a thing!

What are YOU on about? This conversion takes the C64 by the ears and swings it around considerably.They managed to avoid technical limitations of a machine numeours times more limited and slow than a 386DX-40, and you complain about bad-looking pixel stuff?

Sheesh. =)
added on the 2001-02-28 12:50:20 by Shifter Shifter
Yeah, really, this is 1Mhz compared with around 33Mhz for a '93 PC. Don't expect miracles :).

I think I was most impressed with the soundtrack. KB did an excellent job with the 3 channels he had (and don't forget the digital voice samples!).
added on the 2001-03-05 15:05:52 by phoenix phoenix
Yeah,. it's good for what C64 can do. I just wanted to say that it is not my favoritest, it's good conversion but there are more favorite C64 demo out there for me..

smash designs are enthousiasts. they proofed what they wanted - that 2nd reality can be done even on ZX Spectrum. I don't wonder next time if they will convert Sleepless onto intel 8096 :-|

Demo-conversion of this old famous demo by our legend of future crew. Really impressive work, converting a pc/486-demo into a c64-demo. Recreating those effects must have been hard, also when the system is limited. And to see that last famous 3d-sequence running on a c64 is just amazing =)

And kb did a great job with the music as usual =) Never thought I was going to hear such nice sounds coming out of a sid, those filter-sweeps are really nice (which doesn't get played if you're emulating the music in sidplay =( listen to the real thing! =) ) And the skaven-endtext-song-remix is well just cool =)

quite nice, but I didn't like the original THAT much so this wasn't that much better...
the music was great though
added on the 2001-09-28 14:42:27 by britelite britelite
of course it was interesting to see how was it converted - really good job on that.

and thats about it. technically, i think there have been more impressive demos... artistically - i dont like original much and thus conversion even doesnt carry the historical value original got.

What I saw emulated in VICE was really impressive, now how do I get the rest of it to play? It only got up to where PM's music should start, then it died. I must be doing something wrong.
one of the most hated demo in c64scene.

This doesnt deserve the #1 spot in the pouet c64 top10 ...

there are far better c64 demos...
and i dont care whether this is a conversion
or whatever.. It doesnt deserve that spot ..

this is really just "second triag-elity" by
smash designs, and therefore nothing
special imho

okay, the design isn't somewhat fixed, but
it is in fact technically great and a great cover anyway.

not a very creative idea, but very impressive!
rulez added on the 2002-04-09 18:45:26 by cer cer
i think conversions like this one are quite cool. However, i think this could have been done better in some of the parts. But the music is very well connverted imho although i don't hear the samples on my old c128.
i guess it would've been a bit cooler if this had been released around the same time as the pc version.
Anyway, it's not that much compared to the best c64 demos, but it doesn't sucks either. Smash DS have done better demos than this too.

And Hollowman has done much better demos than this hehe :)

This demo has sparked my interest in c64 demos (and probably that of many others). Perhaps the c64 scene should be thankful for that?

In any case, it's very cleverly done. (especially kb with the music - extremely accurate for the most part). I also really loved the BIOS/DOS simulation. Nice. :D

Even tho it is very cool to see a conversion of the greatest pc demo of all (at it's time...) on my favourite platform, I think SD could have done better on a lot of parts. great covered tune by kb tho...

The last few days i dried to make my N-Gage with e32frodo(C64 emulator) run some .d64 files.
And it was ok with all .d64 files but i am not able to run when i have 2 disks.
And i am curious to see how it works
I have seen zecond reality but not the original one

Nice conversion. Featuring some of the typical AEG-sloppiness concerning transition bugs and missing final touch-ups, and he seemed to lose interest in accurate effect conversion towards the demo's end (see the "voxel" landscape which is an utter laugh). And some of the effects could be done better, but surely this demo was considered an instant winner by its makers while creating it, no matter its quality. The musical score's port is amazing.

For the pc freaks: c64 sceners doesnt likes this demo, back in the time we have seen all those effects before this in better quality. So this one getting all the hype coz it managed to gather lousy coded stuff in a "demo cover" made most of the 64ers just angry. On CSDB where really the c64 scene's opinion counts this one is listed as #72.

@oswald: really true mr. 'i know everything best', aren't you pissed about that this demo was placed first and the coma resource demo only second?

it is listed as #72 because some brainless idiots like seven and puterman voted this with 3 and 5 at csdb. woohooo. they must be very talented.

lousy coded stuff? man i never ever heard such a bullshit. everybody can live with negative comments but your 'aeg bashing' here and at
#c-64 is only one thing. Disconcerting.

And please don't talk for the whole c-64 family, mkay?
rulez added on the 2006-07-08 13:49:54 by Fzool Fzool
@Fzool: Puterman rules, and even if he didn't he would still have the right to have his own opinion.

I like this demo, primarily because of the music (which on its own would be enough to merit a thumb up from me, great covers) and the sick, perverted pleasure I get from using ms dos commands on my c128d. Mmmm... Shame about the graphics though.

Oswald does the flaming, FZool does the hyping - in the end, all sums up ;) Calling puterman and 7 "brainless" shows quite some affection.

I agree that some coding was a bit disappointing (tunnel, voxel, rotzoom, animation). Some of the gfx, too.

Still, the demo has cool parts (another way to scroll, interference), fantastic music and a great feeling. Also, you need to have such an idea and make it to the end with it. So it's a definitive thumb up for me.

While a C64 is over an order of magnitude weaker than the PC hardware intended for Second Reality, this demo is most certainly not an order of magnitude worse.

Seconding the CPC conversion call. Batman Group to the rescue? :P

Doesn't work in C64+JiffyDOS+SD2IEC
Stuck on "select SID...." text
sucks added on the 2014-05-13 18:48:30 by Jorge Jorge
Thumbing down a demo just because it doesn't run on SD2IEC is rather silly: "sd2iec cannot emulate a complete 1541 since this would imply emulating a whole 6502 processor, several additional circuits, and the floppy's mechanism."

If you want to watch multiload demos on a real C64, use a 1541U/1541U2 (which does emulate a complete 1541) or an actual diskdrive.

Well a novel attempt for sure. The soundtrack is a nice enough transliteration, but other than that I can't amass much more than the novelty factor, which wears out pretty quickly.

Mostly for the great soundtrack, converted flawlessly to SID. Also the demo itself is quite decent as a conversion.

Forgotten thumb. As incredible as it may seem, the music is better than the original. Maybe because I think an actual synthesizer chip does more justice to the songs than a dumb PCM sample playback engine.

None of the other Second Reality remakes come close to kb's SID version. Some of them are outright wrong with even mis-heard/copied melody notes. (how is it even possible to do that when all the original notes are available in S3M format, doh!)

Ok, so I see I already commented this twice - surely a sign of emotion?It's gonna get its thumb at last, for the music. And the demo is fine too. Now go and watch Edge of Disgrace or Coma Light 13! :-)
