I don't really like the sonic pictures, but wow the sonic effect is a killer! Well done!

Really cool, nice work there!

One complaint: the memory requirement
2 MB of RAM is really too much for an Atari st(e) demo imo.
The code would make a better impression on 512kb or 1mb machines ;) (without obvious & raw precalc that is)

Very nice sonic effect!

Hah, I do like the Sonic Picture! Would love to see this prod. Maybe on Keops Atari some day? ;)

I saw it at Outline party and was reasonably impressed back then. It seems to have had a refresh since, and is better suited to the small screen anyway.

More demos with STe features rule :-)

it rules! demo of the year i'd say!! the requirements are pretty decent, seeing an STe is easily expanded to 2 or 4 MB.

Woah - I'm dully impressed!
I did run the demo on my Falcon and I couldn't spot any timing problems. Well the coders will know better!

It works really good, I love the music which has a nice beat. My favorite parts are The Sonic screen and the endpart although the latter has one minor glitch on Falcon: the TOS loading screen for ENDPART.BIN is shown ;)

Anyway a class A demo for STE and Falcon! This rulez hard!

I think I loose a lot while watching this on Steem. The blobs flicker, the part after the northern lights image isn't displayed at all, I see two separate bump map screens, the final scroller bugs. So the sonic screen is the only I enjoyed (oh and the lens effect at the beginning, I like such nice smooth effects with pixel resolution even if in small area) . I should watch this in a real STe oneday.

Oh,. and bug thumbs up for the nfo file. Huge technical stuff, here I am!!! (even if I know shit about atari coding for the moment)
rulez added on the 2005-09-07 18:15:18 by Optimus Optimus
bug = big
added on the 2005-09-07 18:16:48 by Optimus Optimus
Ah, the huge beast is finaly unleashed! ;)

Excellent production, the effects are really cool and creative, especialy coding wise. It's great to see the STe used at its full potential! I hoped this since sooo many years. :)
And the design/script as well as the music package those in a really sweet way, great job guys!

The coins with their sounds are a cool addition to the Sonic screen since Outline preview, i loved that surprise! :)
Oh and the ending screen, reminded me of 90's STe prods with their smooth digital audio (smooth also for the music itself ;), expecting that here it's along a technicaly blasting visual. :)

I hope to see more from Atari Paradox in the future! :D

Great demo, it made my STE happy. Lovely effects (especially that Sonic part!) and once again excellent tunes by 505!

Cool demo, cool soundtrack. Thanks for pimping up the design since the Outline preview.:-) Watched it several times in a row today... Great work, keep it up.

Too bad the Endpart soundtrack doesnt play back too well on a Falcon.

awesome music! effect are also inovative and great! whole demo somehow brings old memory back at old days, prehapse it's becouse of music :)

Nice to see more prods using double-line mode! ;o) Nice Sonic effect, great music. Worth aw8ing, no doubt. Thumb up!

Thanks a lot to you guys ! This demo brings a LOT of improvements to the preview version and shows fresh fx, cool gfx and rocking sound ! Definitely a very pleasant demo for the STe in 2005 !

STEEM dropped quite a lot of stuff, thanks for the video :)

Extremely nice, although I dread the antropomorphic sonic graphics. He's a penis shy from horrible fanfic hentai porn that the internet seems to feed on :(

shifter: don't leech too much furry ghey hentai porn (btw check out DBJ's site LOL!!! ROTFLMAO)

ltk: indeed. pretty good stuff this STEEM, but it needs some updating it seems ;))
(On C-64, VICE seems to eat even very nasty demos)
But it's cool Paranoid and Ra kicked the STe H/W around so hard emulators get all confused

Current CVS of the emulator Hatari runs this at the same quality as a Falcon - so about 98% close to the original intention.
I like the "runnning sonic" part...
