It doesn't work on my computer, the colours are all garbled. GF4 MX440, DX9c, latest nvidia drivers.

...or is it supposed to be that way?
added on the 2005-01-09 10:46:22 by grip grip
grip-: knowing lator, most likely yes.. it's just that you cant take a screenshot of that "effect".
added on the 2005-01-09 11:12:00 by a_lee_n a_lee_n
a_lee_n: Ok :)
And in that case... Le thumb down.

I dont see what's in the screenshot, but what I see is much cooler in my opinion. It looks like sort of a mfx demo.. something wrong with the textures, perhaps?
added on the 2005-01-09 11:54:37 by Preacher Preacher
oh yeah, GF3, DX9c, rather new drivers..
added on the 2005-01-09 11:55:02 by Preacher Preacher
it's enjoyable enough for a minute or so. after that maybe something should've happened.

cool prods.
I liked music and cool idea.
It is considerably good in dxm prods that I saw.

aleen: this isnt discotheque more than the core of the music really.
its a fucked up version of bob and his cousines wich gosub and ector hacked together during compusphere last year but didnt bother to hand in as they used the discotheque music....

with an hour or so to the optihack deadline i found the sourcecode of this laying around in my dcc incoming folder and decided to hack something up to support our local "demoparty".

a bit too samey.. but the blurred something somewhere in the middle looked cool... logic op or something? :)
added on the 2005-01-09 14:04:36 by loaderror loaderror
if it looks different than the screenshot then it's possibly because of stefan is assraping your gammaramp :D
added on the 2005-01-09 14:09:45 by Gargaj Gargaj
megadelux: Carrions dezin cube from discotheque is there, also that radial blurred text thingie.. so it's more than just the music. But oh well.

radialblurred text... omg... cant remember when that hasnt been in a dxm prod (=

that cube is cool!
added on the 2005-01-09 15:39:02 by Hatikvah Hatikvah
Not bad!... but not too good either. To say that this resembles satori or mfx stuff is a crime anyway.
added on the 2005-01-09 15:48:58 by zomb zomb
zomb: Agreed! Satori sucks :-)
added on the 2005-01-09 16:06:07 by Hatikvah Hatikvah
doesnt work correctly for me either .. looks like everything is over-saturated or a gamma thing or something.. running on radeon 9700 pro, dx9c, catalyst 4.11
try again with a nice colour scheme and without that flickering.

if this is really looks similar to dissociatives fx, they suck. well k-space looks better for sure.
anyway i want my ndma to stay tuned.

I usually don't bother commenting crap, but as it's been a while since my last thumb down I'll make an exception just for DXM...

On the screen it's look really different than on this screenshot... :) ok. I create a shot with fraps and that is good (?). :/
Nice joke :)

yeh, kinda weird how the screenshot captured here looks 5% like what i have on my screen
Weird shit

well ...what cani say ...fugly.. correct me if i m wrong but i have the feeling that DXM prods were fucking better in 2000... understand "i could see it"

Looked like it bugged on my gf3 but im not really sure about this :)
Anyway, the tune was really nice.
added on the 2005-01-10 17:46:49 by Paralax Paralax
well yes it bugged. _tremendously_. Actually this is a pitty because the gf3 enhanced demo really looked alternative, freaky and there were even jpg like artefacts :)
added on the 2005-01-10 17:50:43 by Paralax Paralax
Don't get fooled by the crappy screenshoot on pouet!

Might've been... But you probably are a bigger DXM fan than me so maybe you can inform me what DXM style is preferred for the future!

gfx & sound have the same problem - too much noise. if it wasn't for the weird drum sounds, i would have enjoyed the tune. oh, and the colors. please. how on earth did you come up with PINK?
added on the 2005-01-10 20:36:00 by jazzman jazzman
Well, rather strange one. Not my style (maybe after a fat dope).

looked like it might be alright under that colourscheme, too... oh well.

This was like... ugly, I mean ..reeaally ugly - or even uglier. The screen shot looked even better but on my radeon I had plain green,red,blue waves coming and going... and uh.. I'm out of words :P
sucks added on the 2005-01-12 13:50:05 by Vulture Vulture
Nice demo with some original ideas. Hypnotizing. The music was way cool, with a kinda hidden melody you had to focus to hear. I liked it
rulez added on the 2005-01-12 18:36:43 by Duckers Duckers
This isn't buggy i think... Just a bad joke on sceners :) I thinks gargaj is right: the gammaramp is changed during the show and the visual output is false on the monitor.

I done a screenshot with fraps (not the 'how' and the 'with' is the essence) and the result same to the pic here...

But here is my thumb for a great laughing... ;P

simple code idea -> great f*#ked up result!

First i didn't want to thumb it down, i thought those colors are a bug in my system. Now i see they aren't.

i would probably enjoy this without that extra noise. unfortunately that little extra piece of noise appearing sometimes is something my ear can't tolerate :(
added on the 2005-01-13 19:53:55 by blala blala
abcug: acutally, i recorded this with fraps to display it on the compo. it looked the same.. (fraps 2.5.0)

i did notice some bugs with earlier fraps versions though (2.2.x .. i don't remember)

Video only version (50Mb)

I put it up temporary and i should delete from our server at 2005.02.28 !!!

This is a video only (no audio included) version, please somebody build a vedeo+audio version from it and put onto a ftp archive. Thanx!

oh. this is done with fraps v1.99D ;P

Interesting and different but doesn't quite have what it takes to ascend into greatness. I don't like the music, the badly drawn cube and the effects don't seem to keep me interested enough to remain happy with the recycling.

too much "abstract & noisy" work...

Visuals are literally painful to watch, although I generally like glitchy/noisy visuals, but since the soundtrack is one of my favorite pieces of music that has ever come from the demoscene, thumbing it up.
