Great effects, great models, great colors.. but I was bothered by the erratic camera movement. Still, a big thumbs up.

cool demo with some nicely integrated oldschool elements and a great soundtrack

Great stuff guys.. :) And it's even better when I know how hard you worked to finish it.. At one point I actually thought that your coder would get a nervous breakdown bcoz of the deadline.. ;)

More groups like Outracks please and kudos to them for doing demos that are definitely not hardware cannibals. It's the spirit of demo, uh?
rulez added on the 2005-08-08 20:56:24 by oxb oxb
The color scheme and some effects reminded me of previous Outracks prods, but it is still a very enjoyable watch.

Cool scenes, but too long focus on each scene, and repeating them.

nice scenes, sync and music, but i personally discourage the fact of repeating an scene again and again at the end... anyway, something to store on the hard drive :)

It needs ps2.0 for some of the effects (fe. the blobs), but at least I could watch it on my machine :)

So i guess I didn't get the full experience but from what I saw it seems to me like a "copy" of synthematik without the cartoon shader. Same pace, very similar music and even more erratic as others stated before. Plus the nowadays standard hypnoglow makes me utter the word "cheap"... But, I enjoyed it. Guess that makes me a good consume-whore :)

Hmm ... nice effects but they are all shown too long. You get bored. Sync is good though. Don't like when you repeat all the effects in the end.

Weak thumb, very close to a piggy

It feels quite oldschool at times and at other times just plain good looking. The soundtrack is great. Just sad that there aren't more scenes. Still heavily ruling.

every time glow is used in a demo since 2003, a kitten dies.

anyway. some better gfx than nokelvin, although not as excellent as snarling's work in portalprocess demos. a bit old-looking effects and reused stuff tho, and not any real nice coded stuff (to compare with the quat fractals last time). and some damn heavy camera syncs and music. got a real eye and ear bashing from this one.

overall its my favourite from you guys so far, although it's a bit "nothing new".
added on the 2005-08-09 14:09:20 by smash smash
It looks okay. I don't really mind the glow, but to dust off the old slogan - "Hypnoglow is not an effect!".

On the other hand, the music occasionally plays the "Ciske de Rat" theme (during the greetings, for instance), which makes it an instant classic.

Pah. When you require PS2.0, you should at least fix the per-vertex artifacts in the recycled "water" scene and the first blob-ish thing :-) I like the style, but it's too long for having four or five effects, and at times it's down to something like 5fps at the Athlon 64 3000+ with Radeon 9600 Pro here...

Oh, and remember to turn off the Windows screensaver next time. :-)
added on the 2005-08-09 22:30:30 by Sesse Sesse
Please use GL_RGBA8 and GL_LUMINANCE8 next time. Textures look better when specified as 32 bits... (ok, can be forced with driversettings, but..)

Well its nice to see theres still some quality prods in the comunity, I dunno if its just me but I`v felt there has been a lax in the quality of demos recently, groups would rather make some crappy 'funny' demo rather than some good ole serious stuff that actually blows you away when your watch it. Nice work, I hope to see more of this in the future.
rulez added on the 2005-08-14 15:55:27 by Ammo Ammo
Too little content, too much repetition, some scenes seemed a bit too slow for what was shown.. But apart from those issues, a good show indeed

Good music and pretty visual... but for me, it abuses of camera movements in order to hide the fact that the scenes are mostly statics.
Deserves a thumb up anyway...
rulez added on the 2008-11-24 22:22:34 by untel untel
I watched it again... and saw I was unfair in my previous comment.
Actually, there is only one really "static" scene: the first one, which reappears two time later... ( which represents approximatively 10 percent of the total running time).
I don't know why this little part influenced my overall impression so much. Maybe because these fast camera moves annoyed me.
The rest of this demo totally rocks.
Luckily, I thumbed it up. :)

I'm not really sure if it should look like it does for me.
The music is really great, the visuals are ok,but with the strange flashing in some parts I think there might be something wrong?
Its shown in the Youtube Video of Original post, and also in a HQ Rip I made:
blockbuster by Outracks (720p)
made someone could answer that?
(Using Nvidia card, WinXP/7, vsync on/off no change).

The blockbuster_fix mentioned earlier is down unfortunately.

nice code, graphics and music, but the hypnoglow and flashing spoils it.

Actually, this demo could have consisted of a pink screen all the way, and I wouldn't mind - tune is just that good.
Not saying that the actual scenes are lacking anything, grey and red is outracks - and will always be for me <3

Uh, and to add on the tune, I had this as wake up tone for about two years back then - and it still didn't get meh - instead when i watched it five minutes ago I instantly smiled. Damn you Irvin :D
