one of the nicest demos in the compo...

Very nice, in your face. Timing and aggressive camera angles rock. A definite winner.
rulez added on the 2005-07-31 04:47:44 by ngtflyer ngtflyer
Another kickass demo from Portal, what more is there to say really.. attitude, pace, soundtrack, modelling, code is all of the highest order. Hope this one wins.

Crashed not long after the "pierced screen" scene on my hardware, saw the entire thing on asmtv during the night though.

Very nice. My personal favourite in the compo.

very well done, great visuals, great music, but.. oh! an error on the best part (robot djing).. :( Also, looked great on the streaming but on my computer.. It needs to be a little bit more crispy!
rulez added on the 2005-07-31 10:26:53 by mrdoob mrdoob
Great colormanagement. Black, yellow, red. Works for me and keeps the demo's flow constant. Also neat 3D objects.

Should win. One of the few demos at asm that were not superboring.

great colors. unusual to mix hiphop still with industrial like objects.. nicely done

Looked like your previous demo (which looked like your previous demo (which looked like your previous demo)) but still good anyway (due to the superb modelling work).

Btw, it displays some messages about failed pbuffer release near the end.

Too messy and no direction at all. Sorry, too much of the same,
sucks added on the 2005-07-31 16:47:40 by Zplex Zplex
some nice stuff in here

crashes after some time at line 472 in pBuffer.cpp :)
Lovely mess and beautiful direction. Please make more like this and NOT like ASD (:
yeah, nice demo. but it seems like your code has problems to release the pbuffer ;) (same problem as ile)

waiting for the final. nevertheless, my favourite from the compo. Should have won ;)
rulez added on the 2005-07-31 18:14:53 by prost prost
A bit flybyish, and the scratch robot was something of an anticlimax.. But with those visuals, music and direction I forgive you ;)

Preety cool textures, models and shadows, but I found it kinda boring. The spherize effect on the screens was fun to see ;)
added on the 2005-07-31 22:21:51 by Optimus Optimus
Not my cup of tea at all. It's a bit flybyish and looked a lot better on the big screen, the music has a nice beat into it but I don't like the scratches at all, and it crashes with a PBuffer release error and I had to kill it with ctrl+alt+del.
added on the 2005-08-01 01:49:42 by Preacher Preacher
hmm...weird. I have yet to see it crash. I've run it several times on my P4 machine and it always runs fine.

P4 3.2, i875P chipset, 6600GT and 1gb ram.
added on the 2005-08-01 06:41:15 by ngtflyer ngtflyer
sorry about the crash. it should be mostly ati-owners that has this problem, and the coders are writing a fix for it as we speak - should be done very soon. :)

Crashed in the middle on my home PC too. After a bugfix, this will still be a killer demo, although this looked a bit better on big screen... ;)

should have won! i want to watch it over and over again. awesome soundtrack and cool visuals.
rulez added on the 2005-08-01 10:23:13 by raymon raymon

But i noticed some bad aliasing and strangely poor color resolution for textures, resulting in flat tinted zones looking like non dithered 8bit textures ;)
Maybe it's my laptops card (mobility radeon 9700).
I guess the aliasing comes from the fact you dont give us possibility to select a more appropriate resolution... My laptops native is 1280x800 so if you force a 640x480 i guess i know why it looked so poor aliasingwise;)

Anyway, lets also forget the pBuffer release problem that pops modal error dialog during the whole end of the demo (coz it only kills the end;)

All in all, it's got style, it's got work, and it's got coolness;) Thumb up !
rulez added on the 2005-08-01 11:19:36 by alkama alkama
Marvellous beat and rhythm, quite nice sync, too little of the robot scenes.
rulez added on the 2005-08-01 12:18:08 by elmindreda elmindreda
Thanks for all positive comments and feedback! =)

canonball: not a single vs/ps line in this demo, so i don't know where you've got "only ps2.0" from.

The crash at the beginning of the last scene seems to appear only on ati cards (and all of them, correct me if i'm wrong). I will try to make a fix for this as soon as i can get hold of an ati card.

alkama (and trace): Your comments are interesting. The color resolution and aliasing are "features" and not the fault of your gfx card. After some discussion we decided to give it this appearance. We thought it would look better on the bigscreen and give it a "lo-fi", not CG look. A resolution selector might appear in the final version. We _might_ decide to make a "crisp" version too, but we would have to agree on that first ;-)

lovely stuff. Great direction, some of the robots really ruled. And i really liked that lofi look, it made it look more real (although i think AA would be a positive thing).

Really good looking on the big screen, with some fantastic modelling... But I am still waiting for a robot-less Portal Process demo...

crazy stuff with cool music. ironically titled "dont stop" it "did stop" between all scenes, however once you get your head around that it`s a very high quality production.

could it be that you are using a sample that also fatboy slim used in one song (didn't remember which one) on the 'on the floor at the butique'-album?!
or am i just mad?
rulez added on the 2005-08-01 20:21:23 by v3nom v3nom
venomsoup: sort of - yes, norman cook used it in one of his tunes, but the sample is also on my legally bought "skip to my loops" sample-cd. :)

ps! while you're sample-spotting .. no-one (so far) has detected/commented on the quite obvious c64-game sample in there.

the gauntlet is hereby tossed. :)

Music is not very variated. Huge objects are impressive. To bad demo crashed at my p4 3,2ghz 1gb ram x700

just after the object which comes after those walls with graffiti on them.

The demo with the style.
rulez added on the 2005-08-02 16:49:15 by Ger Ger
for the first half of this demo i really loved it. felt very fresh (even tho it's the same engine as before :)) - maybe the nice models/movements and the music did it, and the rendering looked really good. unfortunately as it went on it seemed to lose steam, the music got repetitive, so did the visuals, and the models seemed to get worse.
still, its like half a very very good demo. =)
rulez added on the 2005-08-02 21:54:32 by smash smash
The best demo from this years Assembly, the only one that made me go "wow, now this is cool!".

Nice models/animations, and in some of the parts in the middle the rendering gets a certain quality that makes it look very "movie-like", I don't know if it is just because it is blurred just the proper amount or what, but it looks great.

The only small minus I can see is that the scratching robots movements doesn't seem to synch with the music.

Yeah, it crashes on my other machine with the ATI card. Runs fine on my main PC that has the NVidia 6600GT.

but yes, this demo rocks. Aggressive cameras and music... the models are awesome and I like the part where the robot smacks the camera. Nice touch. :)

I quite liked the lo-fi effect, and I was enjoying it for a good few minutes, but in the end it started complaining about not being able to release the p-buffer (WinXP, cat5.7, radeon9500).

I thumb this up but it's a weak one. Modelling and stuff is all great, even stunnig but.. I find it quite boring. It's more like an engine test than real demo to me.. or something ;)

I've noticed this in allmost every Portal Process production this far... still waiting for your great blow. You got the tools, use them god dammit! ;)

Athlon2500+/512MB/allinwonder 9600XT 128MB/ cat 5.4

superious greeble usage. nice anyway but a bit difficult to enjoy at home because i don't have enough ram.

ati people, try out this new .exe:
it will hopefully fix the crash.
However, it seems that _some_ radeon cards display the shadows incredibly slowly (lilke 4fps or so). At least the x800pro. Any other ati users suffering from this problem? I'll probably make a disable shadows option in the final. I'll try to reduce the memory requirements too.

While I'm not a fan of the big beat scratchy voice sample stuff, it is used well here, and I would have been severely dissapointed if the robot didn't scratch along, too bad it's not really synched, that would have been perfect, but at least you tried...

This is compeltely about design, which it has in spades, well executed. Good jpb.

just wondering...
do you use shadow maps in the ati version (looks somewhat less precise) and shadow-volumes for nvidia?
if so, what's the problem with volumes on ati?
added on the 2005-08-12 16:43:51 by hfr hfr
4SVOK ok, maybe it is not a PS 2.0 only prod, but is still do not work here, this give me a message "ARB_shadow not supported". This message give me your previous demo Meet the biots too. I have a Hercules Radeon 9100. (same as Radeon 8500)
Music gets a bit boring after some time. Impressive rendering! Reminded me of Kasparov somehow... Works ok here on a Radeon9700Mobility with the ATI-fix.

really really liked this demo in the compo. nice models, music and flow.

ati fix works fine on my r9600pro, catalyst 5.5 (yeah, i should probably update, but i don't care right now).

whatever you're exactly doing in terms of postprocessing, it seems to cost you several bits of color resolution. some scenes looked like there was only about 5 bits/component left.

added on the 2005-08-15 20:19:31 by thec thec
Hellfire: Shadowmaps are used on both ati and nvidia. On ati, combining pbuffers and render-to-depth-buffer doesn't work - so we have to use subteximage instead, which limits the size of the shadowmaps to the screensize.

Trauma Zero: We need the ARB_shadow extension so you're out of luck :-/

+ Has a great look to it. Nice postprocessing
+ Consistent glowing yellow colours all the way.
+ Not a single touch of Nehe in here.
+ The cameras and the look of the lower right scene.
+ The dj-robot and the grafitti-robot(upper right) looked like proper goasnekker robots.
+ Hiphop robot concept
+ Shadows
+ Ace music
+ Cool tags

- Some of the robots are a bit plugin-ish,
- Some of the scenes are a bit empty (black backgrounds are killing the scene in some parts here where maybe a few more particles or other action could have saved the scene again).
- Asm was one week to early.

Even if this is Portal Process umpth robot demo I still think they should make some more of them just to get every single thing right :) It is bloody great as it is, but had a chance of becoming ultimate if just a few more weeks was spent on it.

Crash here. X600 XT.
Kickass anyway. Like Fake Elektronik Lightshow, but this one looks way better.

This seemed very good, though the crashing on ATI and that ultimate greed for memory made me feel this was hurried. Music was, as many have said, a good tribute to the now almost dead big-beat-sound.

I will never understand those people who give thumbs down just because of a platform choice.

How about trying to appreciate the actual work of sceners, which is what Pouet is about (among other things), instead of throwing shit at people because they use a technology you don't like or you don't understand?

I thought Pouet was about demoscene productions, not commercial products reviews...

But is this 16bit? The textures look a bit strange sometimes. Also, I get a black screen at the end of the demo... some scenes work, then a black screen again...

Wow this still looks excellent even today, for the most part. Really smart move to blur some of the scenes since it hides aliasing and other little annoyances. Same thing with the posterizing. Little things like this are what help immensely to make a demo not feel dated even after ten years, take a hint.

The first half is the real deal here though. The segment at 1:23 has some truly excellent angles that put the geometry into nice looking compositions that work particularly well with the harsh lighting. The part after this has some of the best camera direction I've ever seen in the scope of the scene. It's disortienting but all of the angles and ideas with the paths just work. I especially love the ones that are directly oriented with the object so that it's effectively just the environment that rotates!

The latter half is a bit of a mess though. The scenes just don't look quite as good and don't carry nearly as dynamic editing. I also find the camera paths that just stop mid air before the cut annoying. It's not exactly bad but nowhere near the quality of the first half.

Still, the first half of the demo is still quite possibly the best shit the scene has ever produced in this style. I'd even say it's quite competitive with some similar professional works.
