props for doing the compression algorithm in javascript.

One of the two demos from this compo that convinced me this isn't a joke category.
you're mad gasman!!

Great, and the compression thing is just freaky.

Great stuff! What a killer idea to write a javascript intro in 64k! Keep it up. Would like to see some more.

Well, using my packer would have freed at least 4 more Kb :p

LZW might sound impressive but it's not the best bet for that type of data.

This is excellent ! well done

RandomGr: I think you miss the fact that it is done in JavaScript.

Technically wise ( although it's not the most hardcore demo in JS :p ) it beats the crap out of most of the Flash demos so far.

very nice, especially the javascript LZW compression.

I thought about writing a Javascript compressor today, but not LZW but very simple replacement based (find the "best" substring and replace it by an unused character; the code to undo it is about 100 byte) - if you want to you could say "a variation of LZ77". Tested it on your 15671 byte r.js file (uncompressed it first then "recompressed" it).

The compression took ages (~10mins), so this algorithm is a really bad idea for fast compression, but decompression worked unnoticable fast and the demo still worked. And guess what: it compressed your js file (20534 Bytes uncompressed) to 11221 Bytes :P

Seems that LZW is no magic bullet.

(you can find the smaller r.js at http://home.arcor.de/mschierlm/test/r.js.zip)

Wow, javascript "demos" have come a long way :)
rulez added on the 2007-05-20 05:31:23 by Nezbie Nezbie
NeZbiE: So have C64 "demos" and Windows/OpenGL "demos".

and check other JS prods. It's no longer a slow vector balls, simple scroller and proprietary effects show.

Ah, seems it's expecting quicktime instead of mozplugger for the midi playback, so fails there. I'm on Linux, so installing quicktime isn't an option.

A piece of history where javascript, sizecoding and the demoscene met. While almost everyone was still obsessed with Flash.
