The best 4k intro by miles. Should have won, but lame PeeCee sceners don`t allow amiga prods to win.

CD quality music in 4k. Can`t be beaten.....

love the music!

REALLY nice synth.
boring effects and bad music..
added on the 2004-08-10 12:12:13 by lithis lithis
Disqualified because the music was a complete rip from a commercial tune. Jolly good effort to squeeze it into 4k tho.

complete rip from a commercial tune on a 4KB makes me laugh

i liked the synth, rest is crap - alas a piggy.

I have to thumb up the synth, even if the music is crap and whole idea of the intro is too damn cheesy.

I wonder how humus intros have won previous assemblies if lame assembly peecee organizers only dis amiga and won't let them win :p

the rest was just a pile-up of older humus intro effects, slightly improved. still doesn't make it a winner.
tough luck for the disqualification.
all together a piggy.

Is there a binary somewhere? :P
Ripping sucks, the synth absolutely rules, the effects are boring and "seen-before-in-humuses-one-through-four", not to mention the horrible scenepoetry that sounds like it was written by a lovesick 15-year old. And because ripping sucks, a thumbs down.
sucks added on the 2004-08-10 14:20:14 by Preacher Preacher
great synth! The rest looks like shit because of the garish colours.. It has more of a theme than the other humuses though since it concentrates all on a couple of elements (text and the tunnel).. nice
added on the 2004-08-10 14:31:57 by loaderror loaderror
If you're going to rip music, can't you at least rip anything better than cheesy two-bit penistrance? Bah. The visuals were too repetitive too.. But yes, the synth does sound good.

Indeed, GOOD LORD, please, you Amiga wankers call this progression? This reaks of 7/8 years old old TBL PC stuff. Nice synth, but stick the been-there-done-that effects up your ass and next time, pick some quality trance to cover.

Damn, fools :)

Place the term 'quality' in the right perspective. Besides, there are lots of trance track's I'd prefer over overpretentious crappy amateur scene-music anytime.
added on the 2004-08-10 15:12:52 by superplek superplek
Nice synth. The visuals won't be to everyone's liking (borderline codercolors in some places) but I thought they were cool.
rulez added on the 2004-08-10 15:18:30 by parcelshit parcelshit
What is the name of the track it rips? I want to compare.
parapete: i think there was a link to an mp3 somewhere on the fourms
Link to mp3 can be found from http://forum.assembly.org/phpBB/viewtopic.php?p=5046

A quote from Pehu: "Nothing official, but they have sent us an email wondering how it is possible that in Assembly their product was disqualified when in some other major parties his products have not been disqualified while they all contain copyrighted tracks (remakes of other songs). He also kindly provided us a list of those parties he went to compete and productions he submitted containing the copyright violations. It was more like a full confession while truly wondering if he did anything wrong in there."

It's a good 4k tho.
rulez added on the 2004-08-10 16:12:18 by thefox thefox
I for one want more free-jazz in 4k intros. ;)

(And if you don't mind, less tunnels and cheesy poe-try too)

I must admit that yeah, the disqualification of this is quite a sad thing.

Great Synth. So ironic the rip of the music :)
rulez added on the 2004-08-10 17:04:57 by reality3D reality3D
Well there were not much effects inside it (just tunnels and blurry text), but I liked the music and the presentation a lot. I found it really strange that it got disqualified. It's not an MP3 of a song, it's a cover. Covers of commercial songs have been used in a lot of demos and that's not ripping. Except if the asm organizers were just afraid that there would be problems to show that in the big screen with the copyrights, but still, even commercial bands are doing covers of song from other commercial bands, so what?! And I didn't even knew the song before anyways ;P
rulez added on the 2004-08-10 17:07:19 by Optimus Optimus
while wondering how amazingly accurate copy the music is, i almost forgot the intro is a copy of humus 4. which is a copy of humus 3. which is..
sucks added on the 2004-08-10 17:09:45 by Phaser Phaser
nice synth indeed. but it's somewhat misplaced here, as the intro itself is a so-so at best. i wonder if there will be another humus next year.
added on the 2004-08-10 17:14:58 by dalezr dalezr

well, three are definitly improvement over the last version of the humus intro. but rereleasing the same intro over and over again like this is just pathetic. if humus5 appears at next asm, i'm personally gonna rent a russian hitman to cut off exploders fingers so he's not able to "remix" anymore.

added on the 2004-08-10 17:18:32 by superplek superplek
OK... the synth is really nice. The effects are again recycled from previous humus intros, which is a shame.

I actually really liked the use of bright colours, it think it was done well. But then, i'm a coder, I'm supposed to like coder colours ;-)

Overall gets a thumbs up from me, mostly for the synth and nice design.

Shane : listen to xeron, that people thumb this down is probably more because of the humus product than it's an amiga product.

How can I make it run WinUAE btw? (The video saved the day for today). I run the file, waits a bit and then returns back to OS. I tried with 68020+FPU or 68040, diferrent memory configs, running from Workbench or plain boot, running settpatch before, what else? I always hate it when I can't run some Amiga demos and I don't know what it is because I don't know jackshit about Amiga :P

sucks added on the 2004-08-10 19:30:27 by drstranger drstranger
OK... seems the code isn't recycled. Its a 3 layer tunnel, the old humus tunnel was 1 layer. The demo uses Warp3D, not aga like previous humus intros, and none of the effects were just recycled... I gave it a thumbs up anyway ;-)

drstranger: Melon have ALWAyS ripped their prod's musics since the amiga days. This was their special touch.

From a demoscene and artistic point of view, this was a SHAME to kill their demo at ASM03. This prod was one of the most brilliant and original demo for years and we all know that.

From a commercial and fair point of view, I can understand that ASM orgas did it.

But don't say they suck because they rip.

I know they suck because it was not fair. But I think that they were simply not aware of the copyright issue because Assembly is far from being these underground demoparties "back in the old days"... And this is where Melon comes from.

QuarkTex provides a Warp3D to OpenGL wrapper for WinUAE, so Warp3D apps use your Windows 3D card. Don't know how good it is since I only have real Amigas, but it might help you run the intro.

"The demo uses Warp3D, not aga like previous humus intros"

The visuals are a little bit boring. The music is quite good (i guess the .avi lowered the quality).

if they cant read the rules its their problem.

It's nice like all the Humus 4k's (I think some of them did have more effects though?), but there are just some much better Amiga 4k's in existence, many of which have much better music as well (and I do like trance).

Suck-ass music. Why the hell do they rip shit? Why doesnt Exploder contact some musicans in the scene. I bet alot would like to be apart of his nice productions.

Btw:Who are theese guys, cant find much info on them on the regular scene sites....

I mean to have read or heard that Exploder is Russian. (or am I wrong?)

I know this Tony Aksnes from earlier days of the Amigascene. Actually I though he had disapeard long ago in the end of the 90ies.
I suspect him for being behind the cheesy poetry, and the music. So Exploder should absolutley get some talented gfx and music members in PUSH. (if not, you are welcome to join RNO ;)
rulez added on the 2005-12-21 21:28:50 by tFt tFt
Refuses to run on my machine even if I have enough memory. But as I know all previous versions of Humus, I should know this aswell.

Exploder, the master of re-re-re-using effects, but he`s still doing very nice 4k`s, recycling at its maximum or not!
added on the 2006-01-02 14:19:27 by ghandy ghandy
at asm'99 they didnt care if the music was ripped. The demomusic from Yoman3 is a rip/mix of a "Paeronsoda" tune.. this is a 4k and its NOT a rip.. wankers!
"Bad artists copy. Great artists steal."
-- Pablo Picasso

Although I don't care too much about ripping I still think you should use your synth to the fullest by giving it to a musician to do something original with it. Still can't believe the quality in this. It's amazing!

rulez added on the 2007-05-22 18:21:35 by RA RA
nice synth for sure, technically impressive, but find some musician to do something original next time.

noname: 'steal' is good if it means making it your own, and pushing it further. blatant copy is always lame.

a couple of similarities, but less tunnels and more cubes.

For some reason this works for me even though most of the effects were already seen in the other Humus intros. Soft synth is good as usual, choice of music is not. And what Slummy said about the scene poetry. :) Still, thumb up!
