Good idea, nice 3d, nice music and a very good crt effect. On the other hand, the girl could move her hands a little more on the keyboard at times and the greetings part was somewhat slow on my Athlon XP 2800, gf FX 5600. I watched the linux version btw.

Sure, there were better demos in the compo, but you know how it works on parties :-)

Wow! What fantastic character animation!

Okay, okay, I'm being sarcastic...

Great idea let down by half-baked execution. A shame, a shame.
And in regards to the comments about "wrong languages" -- I'm thinking the idea is "progression," similar to C64 > Amiga > PC, but instead BASIC > C > ASM...

rulez added on the 2004-08-08 20:10:30 by evil evil
Okayish, but no winner. The monitor effect is very nice.

Not perfect by any means, but I can't deny enjoying this. As for the expected "x should've won" whinings, at least this had some kind of an idea behind it instead of a mess of 2567828 glowing layers.. And it's not Metalvoltze either. ;)
rulez added on the 2004-08-09 10:41:19 by break break
Felt a bit like "oh, old effects on PC again, how delightfully oldskool and retro" at first, until the Amiga ball appeared and I finally got the idea.

Not exactly my choice for 1st place either, but still a neat idea and cute delivery and of course the fact that it didn't immediately make me puke even though it was a 3D story demo is a definite plus.

I guess the old, obsolete, drunk crowd out numbered the new, fresh, idealists at assembly (or any other party for that matter) again. Do we really need to reminisce about "the good ol' days" every single year? Let's start progressing some, people.

Nice idea... and a very cool tune!
But: This WON assembly??? Were only C64 fanboys there???
The girl looks... static... no motion or emotion, it just sits like a doll... the gir is sooo boring!

Sorry to say that: absolutely overrated, ASM should have won...
sucks added on the 2004-08-09 23:50:56 by imYemeth imYemeth
Heh.. Reading the comments it looks like someone should do some more research on how assembly works. This demo is pretty much a perfect execution of a crowdpleaser that will win assembly. It has everything it takes to impress the 4000 gamers that are forced to watch it and thereby vote, and it has enough nostalgic moments for most of the demosceners to vote it in the top 5.

So yes, this really won. So did legomania.
added on the 2004-08-10 05:16:36 by leijaa leijaa
an outstanding piece of working this one. i loved, it made me smile :) And the music is fscking amazing, just want to listen it looping, on and on. Luckily the ogg didn't even have to be extracted from the demo :)

The only problem, that others have already stated, was the "static" look of the girl. some more animation, facial expressions et cetera would have been nice. Though it rocks anyway, truly a deserved winner !!!
rulez added on the 2004-08-10 08:35:12 by asswhore asswhore
basically just a few 3d-scenes. would have fitted better in the video-compo.
the theme itself ("computer nostalgia") is not so very new, but the execution is quite well done.
i second leia, perfect big-party-crowdpleaser: nostalgia, 3d and there is even a girl (huhu, like lara, huhu).
added on the 2004-08-10 08:46:17 by Spin Spin
Lame idea (I second arneweisse on this), but quality-wise carried out professionally.

I wonder who voted this #1 though... some possible candidates have been discussed, but I'd also bet a group of young gamers/sceners trying to act older and/or "leet" by pretending nostalgy towards old machines.

Stop whining about the static look of the girl - how many other demos have real character animation? The scenes maybe static but they're very detailed and nicely lit.

Good transitions between scenes - allthough the camera movement could have been a bit less smooth to make it look better.

Also dont forget the nice intro with the electronic blueprint with credits.

Why this won is beyond me.

Could it be that most people miss the "good old days", and that the people who weren't a part of the scene back then wish they were?
Hey, I'm as much of a sobbing retro lover as the rest of you, but I don't think this should have won.

Nice demo though.

Cute Funny Original too much 3D playing, BUT man! nowadays demos tend to explain a storyline, so try to do that with a copperbars ala oldskool style! huh?

The most surprising of all , and the BEST point on this prod, is that hitek succeded in making all running on a P3 500 using a crappy GF2 MX !!!! WOW WOW!

I'm wondering if this demo were released by other famous demogroups, Anal-shaders or Pussy-fragments would be needed? they're really needed outside videogame industry?...uhm in order to win reconeisance and respect among a DEMOPARTY with a 1st place, seems NOT

Jak : What are you talking about man... That drivel is typical of people unable to use/watch shader-based demos, and hence diss the technology as 'unneeded for the demoscene'. Which is a bit moronic to say the least...

But what has Turkey/Greece got to do with the word 'moron' ?

By the way, this crashes on my Radeon9800Pro (around the Amiga part, but it could be random).. It worked fine on the crappy integrated Radeion9000 though, with nearly the same setup otherwise.

And while I must say this looked far better on the big screen while drunk and seriously sleep deprived, I still like it.

well ... sweet, sentimental and cheesy. and no surprise at all. we all went that from way, mostly. and while just showing that migration might be a nice basis for a good demo, it's not a good demo itself automatically. cute approach, but no innovation and no style ...

and something I'll never get: if your realisticly intented 3D model of a human being somewhat just ends up looking fake, why sticking with this realism? in this case a cool, more abstract and comic like character with more style and decent animation would have done so much better. and would have had so much more character ...
sucks added on the 2004-08-10 21:50:23 by monroe monroe
and while I talked of it: just displaying 3D things most realisticly might be technically challenging, but is visually plain BORING. the grade of abstraction, exaggeration and interpretation is what makes it interesting, stylish and artsy.

i guess the idea was ok, the execution could have been better, but it wasn't bad (although the last scene was notably jerky). But somehow the whole thing left me feeling that it was a bit crap... a bit too sentimental in a cheesy way perhaps. And why does the girl have shades on while she's coding the pc?? does she not know you can buy monitor filters? or does she have a hangover and she's coding at the party?

The music serves the narration perfectly. Proffessional quality in 3d, and good flow at the storyboard. Though my guess is it won't stand out in the crowd in the long run, it is a very entairtaining production and does certainly deserve a thumbs up
rulez added on the 2004-08-22 20:56:11 by amv amv
bad points :
- only C64, A500+ (yes! rom seems to be Kickstart2.0 and it use a hard drive but where is the left device?) and PC in DOS mode, where are the other legendary computers? (Amstrad, Atari, Accelerated PC...)
- loong black loading, bad files package of the uncompressed datas
- why did you use those faked names ? 'Commahdore', 'Améga'...

good points :
- music is very good and well used, rythm of the scenes are good, cameras are ok
- lightmap usage is good, modeling is ok (poor modeling of the computers, few animations of the hands)
- nostalgia, and the fact the girl grows with the evolution of computers is a good idea and the key of the emotions

so, enough for a thumb up, a sequel will be good with more detailled meshs and more various computers.

Then I have the same comment as keops.. Moreover, music could be much more leet itself. And too bad, the content is only a big flyby through 3D scenes.. I dont think this is a demo. Asd / planet risk (for visuals) and We Cell / Kewlers (for music) are far better I think, check them out.

sorry, but boooring ..
this simply demonstrates how easy sceners can be influenced by girls and some lame oldskoolfx for voting, there were much better releases. the quality of the demo wasn't that good and the story was uninspired.

I agree that it did not deserve to win the compo, but it was very well executed. Some of the nicest points were the real code, the realistic graphics on the screen (including the screen shadow mesh and/or subpixels, I know it was just an overlayed texture but that takes some thought and study to make it different for each machine). The music wasn't bad.

Although this is a story demo, it's not a bad one. It's a lot better than plenty of the other demos that are just a rotating mesh with some stock shader effects on it and messages that go "HAY GUYS WE CAN ROTATE A COOLER LOOKING OBJECT THAN YOU". There have been worse demos to win assembly.

If you nitpick about the code and timeline and things, you really are not the sort of person who can give a balanced opinion on anything and should shut the hell up.

An astute demo, which tries to capture the audience (succeeding in it, as I can see) showing memories and memorabilia from the past.
However nice music and idea compensate the not-perfect technical realization and so maybe it is worth a look, in particular if you are born before early eighties.

But it's simply a shame that this is the winner of asm04, with ASD and Kewlers demos around.
added on the 2004-10-10 21:39:25 by Cacodemon Cacodemon
Not a winner in my heart, as it personally doesn't rate in my top 3 asm04 favorites.

Some nice models, although everything is a wee bit static. At least the scenes use good lighting parameters and are rather detailed.

Still, quite a lot of work involved, and it is pretty decent overall. Not something I'd watch more than once though.

i honestly want to give this one a thumb down.. but i keep looking at the screenshot and that blue glow, and i can't. :)

yes, this was definitely meant to pander to the audience to get votes.. but c'mon, like it hasn't happened a hundred times before. i knew where they were going, but like many other demos, the story was vague and less emotional than it could've been. i won't nitpick at what "effects" and "code" were done on what computers, that's for the geeks to do. :) but yeah, the nostalgia thing is only going to work for so long...

The music saves this otherwise quite boring production. Also the girl is unnecessarily large in the chest region when she's come of age, which I feel is just childishly sexist and otherwise typical in a bad way for the scene.

Obsoleet by Unreal Voodoo has a very special atmosphere which I guess makes most of us just love it. This is a nostalgic trip that goes back to our C64/128-Amiga childhood.

It's not very impressive technically and it's not about abstract art, so if that's your cup of tea you might not like it. Some people might call it "a boring 3d-fly-by", but I think the demo as a whole has a very high quality.

Graphics looks a bit simple but is still nice, although I would have liked to see the girl model looking a bit less stiff.

The soundtrack by Cairbre is a masterpiece alone and can be downloaded separatly from Unreal Voodoo's website. It really fits like a glove and I love the way it evolves with the demo.

For me, this is a rare gem.
Well made Unreal Voodoo.

Obsoleet is one for the crowds, no doubt about that. I disagree with some saying it's for gamers though, I don't think your average CS-playing gamerpartygoer appreciates retro one lousy bit. Most likely it was voted by sceners. While it was not the best demo of the party I find the win acceptable.

There have been other demoscene history demos but this is the best one and does it in an original way also extending to more than just demoscene history. Anyone who has grown up with computers can appreciate the effort, showing a person growing up and crude machines changing towards the more advanced is simply a brilliant idea. Had they not made her a female, much of the critique would be moot and close to none of the charm lost.

The old effects are made to look good and the historical inaccuracies forgivable. Transitioning thru multiple time periods to the very end where it is suggested that this whole demo has been a work of the same girl is nice.

Sometimes it's OK to be popular and still manage to create art. I'm sure the charm in this will last for a while, because it never rested on technical merit.
