a great demo from halycon which was really fast-paced, but I cannot make it work on my computer anymore :(

read hornet's comments on da clone by halcyon, it might work for this one too =)

Nope, this one's really hard to get running on new machines, patched or not. But for the time, it was a trendsetter on the PC (even if they took styling cues from Polka Brothers :).

nobody else was taking styling cues from polkabrothers (apart from, well, orange) so might as well man

I have the same problem, on anything above a 486 I couldn't get this awesome demo to run. But the good news is that it runs very well on dosbox :-)

lucky you gloom, i think it ran only once or twice after numerous config tweaks on my good old thrusty dx2-66... but it was so good! :)

I had totally forgotten this. I also had forgotten how ugly it is. Effects are good, but color choices horrible and the music isn't really inspired either.

One of the coolest demos then :)

Not that great. It's not bad and has its moments, but some things really don't belong there.

Really amazing demo, great style, code and music. Halcyon was one of my faves.

Influental as usual, but I find execution to be lacking. Has a lot to do with the music which really isn't my taste, at least not in that tempo.

Certainly looks ok, but for some reason i just dont dig it.

Considering this is 1995, Yeah. that's how demos truly looked back then and this one was banging well!
