good physics, but nothing more than that. the music is a mp3 of a classical track and the soundeffects are horrible. also; you bastard stole our outtakes-idea! :)

sure they received votes on the music... and physics of course.
Very funny :) Made many of us laugh at asm.

good, but the presentation and music could be improved a LOT!
It`s ok, too few scenes.....great idea in the end of the demo though.

I liked this. The physics engine is good and it's not a boring 3d-rotator. The music I think fit the demo rather well.

I love it! remember me ambiance of "Amélie Poulain"... Nice ripped soundtrack!
rulez added on the 2004-08-08 18:02:08 by skarab skarab
cool physics.. didnt care that much about the scenes though.... and the sound effects were a bit cheap. Outtakes were nice.
rulez added on the 2004-08-08 18:07:19 by loaderror loaderror
If you don't mind some bad quality sound effects, this demo is very good. For once a physics engine show-off has decent graphics, a fitting music track and it's quite funny. The outtakes of course is the best part of the demo.

The end bit should've been the main demo. Piano performance wasn't great, so I assume they recorded it themselves. It also had poor sound quality.

However, the physics were fun, at least at the end, which seened longer than the main section.

i hate physics demos.
and i hate crappy music.
i almost puked when saw this since this was so fucking ugly.

and i hate the people who do shit like this, you should get your asses kickes big time. doing crap like this is a crime against humanity.

and seriously, what the fuck is wrong with people when shit like this gets in 3rd?

just looking at the screenshot and description in here makes me not want to download this.
Funny and has a lot of nice ideas. More of a technology demo than a scene prod: really stood out in the compo because it looked different.

it was cute but a physics engine with 3 scenes and ripped music shouldnt be on top3.

thumbs up for the physics-code and the outtakes. the music, textures and colors can be, uh, improved.

Well, as it demonstrates skills, it's a demo. And the end part is funny. Thumb up for me.
rulez added on the 2004-08-10 19:57:55 by scamp scamp
skills, schmills. The payoff for this demo is screwing with a couple of parameters in the same goddamn scenes for a while. No skills, but certainly worth a laugh.

I like it for the good sense of humour and the daring choice to use classical music
added on the 2004-08-11 10:52:10 by amv amv
This project was a disaster in terms of getting it together in the last minute. Some of the sounds were created an hour before the deadline and you can really hear that.

Also, my piano playing really sucks, so apologies for that. We thought about using other music as well, but in the end I wanted to keep the classical piece to constrast the breaking stuff.

Our original idea was to trick the viewer into thinking that the beginning part was all there is. Then we wanted to have lots and lots of funny outtakes so that the actual demo would be made almost 90% of those. Due to time limitations we really didn't get that idea through well enough. Although it is rewarding to read that most of the people seemed to like the few outtakes we had time to do.

As far as not being a "proper" demo, we really didn't know what a demo must be like.

It's got code, graphics, music and it is well designed. Personally, I think this is more of a demo than many other productions we've seen recently, because it is also _original_. I should also point out that the choice of classical music was excellent design-wise.

Maybe some people don't consider this a demo because it had no... scene poetry :-)
added on the 2004-08-11 17:05:52 by moT moT
The outtakes are what made this demo fun.

the thousands of demos here may have given you a slight hint about what people expect.</sarcasm>

I'm also glad that you aparrently had no time to add extra bloopers. It got stale after the fifth "oops".

It is refreshing to see something so different design- and musicwise.
rulez added on the 2004-08-12 17:37:37 by mjz mjz
cute and very entertaining ... plus a nice different taste. like it. and the classical music works perfectly as the mentioned contrast to what you see. any other music would just have been a background element while here it becomes a character of the prod. no problem with that at all ...

Just plain funny. The music and sound effects are AWFUL, and this is the weak point of it.

Since it made me laugh a lot, I think it deserves its place. Could have been a lot more polished.
rulez added on the 2004-08-16 12:06:46 by Drift Drift
good physics engine but please... it's not pleasant.. it's boring, it's got Mozart for crying out loud and it surely doesn't deserve #3. The outtakes are fun.

Final part was fun and psyhics seem like a porn to me. Still, not enough for a thumb up. I think this looks sweeter than Dream Equations, but.. they got it first :) A bit more innovative stuff next time and I give you all thumbs you ever need.

pretty cool and good physics engine but it lacks some "demoscene feeling" for a thumb up :)
added on the 2004-08-26 22:07:42 by keops keops
+ last part and physics code, good collision detection (did you write it by your own or used some kind of library?)

- maybe I am not the one who should write about design :) but I did not like it,

+ last part: good idea

conclusion: thumb up, and keep good work on your physics engine

question: what kind of rigid bodies did you use? the barraf's one?

Ahh.. I realized now (readed readme) that you used the library - however - thumbs up for the physics :)
rulez added on the 2004-08-27 18:40:43 by maq^flp maq^flp
for me it IS a demo . . . an it is definately cool . . .
rulez added on the 2004-08-27 19:35:33 by freed_ohm freed_ohm
to maq^flp:

I used a library for the box-box collision testing but the rest of the physics engine itself is home-brew. It follows quite closely the Baraff's lectures at SIGGRAPH 2003, but I had to add a lot of tweaks and tricks to make it work better with several objects. Also, Baraff's paper doesn't really discuss friction that much, so that had to be added from the scratch.

So the "out takes" lasted longer than the demo. Great. This demo totally sucks. Why the hell did it come 3rd? Assembly voters clearly know jack shit about anything when things like this crock of garbage comes 3rd and We Cell by Kewlers comes 5th. What the fuck.

I'd say this is a lot more "scene-related" than your average abstract flyby. There is more to it than bad IDM, leet handles and greetings lists you know..

After reading the previous comments I can only repeat what some people have said: this is a good physics engine and this "demo" is a collection of examples showing its capabilities (nothing more) and not a sublime synthesis of skilfulness and artistic sensation, as I think a real demo should be.

Not much of a demo or art for that matter. Had it been up to me only, this one wouldn't have even qualified to be shown on the screen. Physics engine shown off badly.
