3d effects show. some neat stuff, and some boring. possibly the most horrible music score in the intromaking history. 8]

loust intro ;)
Doesn't work on the 3 machines i have tested it on..

And btw, lator keeps telling people that i designed the intro, wich is plain bullshit.

the worst fucking piece of shit I've ever seen... Is this the best you can do ?? This is not a intro.. its just alot of effects that doesn't fit

I mean.. who do you really like your 2fps flatshaded cubes ? :)
Atleast you dont fall to sleep when watching it.. and most important.. it was fun to make.. no bullcrap dezin having to take all our time:)

well, I'm sorry guys but I like it.
not the music of course =) but some of the effects are pretty cool and all this fit in a 64k, good job.

the music suxx bigtime.. and so do some of the effects if run on lousy crappy vidcards :)

yet another bad intro, atleast i can say that i did not fall asleep to this one (music is SOOOOO AWFULL!)
The music isn't actually the musician's fault, it was a cool song and minifmod fucked it up totally. Ahnion spent a week tuning the music to minifmod after hearing it and then lator refused to use that version, and fucked up some samples on his own to make it pack better.
I actually feel sorry for ahnion. :)
(But the music is probably the main reason anyone remembers this intro at all!)

bad bad baaaad lator, h4xx0ring ahnions music to fit some extra bytes.

btw, it's clearly documented that the mfmod version used in this intro does NOT support finetuning in xm's,
so i guess thanx to lator, all the finetuning ahnion did was a total waste of his lifecycle :)

other than that i guess it shows dxm has competent coders.
too bad they are colorblind and lack basic gfxknowledge :)
added on the 2001-09-07 02:38:25 by jelly jelly
Lator is neither colorblind nor lacks gfxknowledge. He's just mentally fucked up.
Gosub on the other hand can be excused for those reasons.
Me? Don't look at me, I never touch most of DXM's productions. A small function or two and some design advice that they totally ignore is my usual contribution. :)
added on the 2001-09-14 01:35:58 by carrion carrion
well i've seen some promising effects i must say. but.. ehm.. yeah i don't know why you guys released this intro when the music is fucked up SO HARD. really, i had to turn it off just because i went all crazy hearing that shit :) oh and uhm

your designer needs to get back to the drawingboard :)

Well *I* liked it!! May not be the best intro ever, but there was enough to keep my eyes occupied.

I'm starting to think that all DXM prods are similar.

this is intro is great! it explores new feelings that no one in the scene dared to go before, mixed with nice classic effects.
the tunnel in the beginning is amazing ... YOU REALLY FEEL INSANE!...
and I follow the recurrent ball rolling over the landscape.. after a while this gets too much for him.. he decides to take his life? he drowns himself in the water?! sad and minimalistic story.
keep up the good work!
I like.
This art.

Some effects were quite okay, almost of an unsurpassed quality if you consider it's DXM. The last effect for example (ignore the texture) is quite promising.

But the music.....daaamn. The music sounded like a car-claxon orchestra consisting of deaf people.

Yeah !!! Good Intro Guyz ! :)
and well... the last effect is pretty cool ! :)

SHAME for the detuned music.
The rest is good, expecially the last fx.

Sir, I think your XM replayer has a bug!
Virtual thumb up to the musician for not tearing apart Stefan after hearing what has been done to his music.

(oh, and the intro itself is pretty ugly)
