Is this the same Thrust that did "Thrust Concert" on C-64? The same Thrust that had Rob Hubbard?

Actually it's a cracktro and i think it's real name is: "ottifanten"

ottifanten. idea taken right from otto - der neue film. a classic indeed. i think someone did that on c64 as well, which i found more enjoyable. anyway. toes up.

deathy, that one was by stoat and tim. and they didn't call themselves thrust, it was just the demo that went by the same name as the tune by rob hubbard.

Hitchhikr: Actually, the intro was used for several purposes. But yes, as everyone should know it's called Ottifanten.

Thanks :)
Shame on me.
and now i remember the one from c64 - it was called 'mc gottifant' and it was released at horizon party in '90 or '91. i might still have it somewhere in my collection.

hey great! this one! Thrust wanted to make the longest scrolltext ever... after that it was a competition for a time to make veryyyyyy long scrollers... but today they are all gone... the scrollers.. Thats really a classic!
rulez added on the 2005-09-13 23:51:36 by titus^rab titus^rab
btw... I just read this scroller once.. and it was really damn long.
added on the 2005-09-13 23:53:40 by titus^rab titus^rab
Used to hold the scroller record for length, yes.
Was used as the cracktro to Albedo, yes.
This is not the cracktro to Albedo, no. This is the one with all the scrolltext (: The cracktro had the text removed, but not the greetz (: (Yes, Accession got greeted (: )
There are NOT better Thrust demos, this is the 3rd best demo EVER EVER EV AH EV AH EEEEEEEVVVVVVVVV AAAAAAAAAHHHHHH
And yes it pisses me off that someone else did mc gottifant, cuz I was coding this for c64 back in like '89 after I saw it (:
Classic piece of fun.

I remember being involved with Antitrax Megademo to this stupid scroller record thing. :P
Our Megademo 1987 scroller was beaten by Tristar 1988 and Tristar was beaten by Thrust in 1989...
The awesome tune to this nice intro was a contribution from Red Sector.
It's a modification of Shannon "Let the music play".

There has been a second part to this demo, which was released on a Thrust Copy Party Nürnberg back in the days.
It was the picture of an Amiga 1000 showing the Ottifanten demo in a screen.
Great BBS "Central Europe" times...

Greetings from the Antitrax Posse.

in thrust we trust !
never thumbed this up ?!!!! thiz* a masterpiece, srsly !1!! great anim (rare for its time..raf megademo springs to my mind but apart from that...), ..about the ST: somehow I remember that this was a "fire & ice" remix but my mind might play tricks on me...)

The little guy on the elephants back always had my sympathies. Great anim when it came out.

its a guy making some fun in TV/theatre for decades already...his name is OTTO...only known in grmany tho...he made somn elephants look like him...ottophants-Ottifanten ;)
we in germany still party everytime he pops up, while he´s above 60s already ! he´s just the number one when it comes to "FUN" !!!
Brings a tear to my eye. Hard to believe this is 20 years ago already. Feels like 10 at max... :(

A WHDLoad patch for this classic is now available. Worth mentioning is that the scrolltext here was protected with a checksum so no lamers could change it, in case someone tried to modify it the demo would reset the Amiga!
added on the 2013-09-24 16:43:34 by StingRay StingRay
Yes, fun!

My local grocery store has been filling up with Ottifanten-branded stuff lately. Made me think of this demo for the first time in a long while.
