quite nice 3D here, I especially like the ground with the 3 moving holes

great job

Yeah... together with Heaven 7, the only realtime raytracer which actually looks good :)
Nice job anyway, really enjoyed watching this one, and the hw accelerated raytracing is a nice concept (looking forward to see more like this)

aaah... this is wicked.
dark and atmospheric visuals with dark, fast slamming dnb to match it. textures and lightning to die for.
this kicks the shit out of heaven7, i'm my oh so humble opinion.
this is a classic, up there with hplus and bakkslide 7.

Is it hardware accelerated raytracing? Hmm,.. perhaps that's why Fresnel1 was damn slow but this fast!

The atmosphere and visuals reminded me of Hplus..

It was a really nice watch!

the textures and 3dmodels are good but the synchros sucks, music is not bad, the whole demo is not excellent, i prefer Fresnel(1), this second edition is not better, the code is perhaps more fast (rage128) but the ensemble is not very good.
hmm..ok, nice intro, but its so...hmm..grey! ;)

Good material. Must see. If only they did put up some more textures, keeping similar color schemes, but few more textures wouldn't hurt. Still I think it's a pretty hot intro. Technically almost flawless.

*very* nice one.

A little bit lacking in the colour department, but otherwise a nice raytracer intro.

This is the first realtime CSG I've noticed (I'm more specifically referring to the spheres which were subtracted from objects during rendering). I hope kolor makes more in this style. I didn't like the texture(s) and the music didn't do much for me, but I see lots and lots of potential for this.

hmm.. I just watched fresnel for the first time, and I was surprised to see that I actually preferred the textures in fresnel 2 :) so.. I see what you were going for.. never mind, the texture is pretty good :)

I think I'd like to see some of this done in a demo.. but I suppose that depending on how this was coded, that might be a pain :)
added on the 2002-02-11 19:43:51 by bigcheese bigcheese
realtime csg? you mean like viewing the inside of a cube thru a magic block? :)

jarno: realtime "see ass jizz". Some sort of hirmu perversion... (joking dudes, I love the intro :D)

yeah! the tune and design are great,
and it also seems quite well-coded. realtime
raytracing rocks, even in low resolution. give us more hectic drum and bass tunes!

great d'n'b, great synchro and wicked ideas all over. more textures won't hurt of course, but this is still very good.

Nice raytracer, but the textures are too average (although they are compressed, and not generated) but the textures are too repetitive... Nice technically, but it's visually average

got an atmosphere and music helps to make it up.. the d'n'b part is kinda out of key tho and greetings last to long - however the world, light sync and addfx makes it a very good intro.

we need more DnB demos...

about the lack of saturation in the colour - I'm guessing it's because doing colour-blends without textures at object edges would look too yuk with high amounts of saturation.

The raytracer is amazing. It gets awesome FPS even on my lame Duron 800 processor, and there's a lot going on in those scenes. I don't like the colors or the scene design much, though.

Technically good, but dead boring. Fresnel 1 was way better.

gives inspiration! reminds me a littlebit about hplus although its pure raytracing. a bit boring with only two(?) textures though. thumbs up for raytracing!

Classic thumb! The first comments talk about it being accellerated “rage128”. Is the grid interpolation done on a gpu?
