can't get this to work with kkapture though. pantaloon/smash, are you available for a problem-hunting session? :)

Beginning was great. Rest did not really catch my attention.

Piggy for bad technical implementation. Like all fairlight demos this one stutters and seems to have a memory leak (constant HD access despite 1gig of ram)

Didn't look as good at home as at the party place, but it's still one of the few fairlight PC prods I would like to watch once in a while. The beginning was stunning.
rulez added on the 2006-08-06 23:26:00 by Preacher Preacher
The music is fantastic. Everything else as well. Though growing lines/stuff is pretty common recent flt prods...

1 fps in the first minute or so. Then it gets smoother. Dualcore AMD 3800, 1GB ram, GF 6800.
The ATAT was sweet.
rulez added on the 2006-08-07 01:10:22 by r0XX0r r0XX0r
Really great, but as others has mentioned, it lags in the beginning. And on the higher settings it made my machine restart after a minute or so. But yea, great stuff!
rulez added on the 2006-08-07 02:41:29 by morten morten
512 MB of ram simply is NOT enough for this demo. Insane disk swapping here. I will wait for a fix or watch video.

rulez added on the 2006-08-07 09:51:40 by Duckers Duckers
as you might guess, this seriously ended up rushed and unfinished. was finally handed in about 1 day late.. there was hardly time to fill all the parts in, let alone fix the many bugs, loading speed (which is a joke), running speed and filesize. and some parts are total filler.

give us a few weeks or so and we'll fix a remix which should hopefully be what this demo _should_ have been. :)

added on the 2006-08-07 10:08:27 by smash smash
different but not really my cup of tea. much too boring. I also don't like the converted amiga flt intro at the beginning since it only works with Angel Dawn's logo. :)
added on the 2006-08-07 10:14:29 by StingRay StingRay
Oh, yes. 384 Mb RAM is not enough as well :) Smash, I'll prey for your success in final version fixing.

well, it's a bit sluggish at times on a dualcore pentium 3.2, 1gb ram, gf6600gt as well...

Strange, on my system amd64 3500+9600 pro this bitcha crashed all the time. 10 secs after mighty precalc.

Im using v6.6 ati drivers. Other asm06 demos worked just fine.

It's a shame not to thumb this up, but the loading time is a bit too long considering the file-size. At various points it also manages to reduce my 6600GT to a slide-show at 640x480 without AA. I also found it a bit incoherent, understandable since it was rushed I suppose.

Fairlight has to be my favourite demogroup on pc. This demo is so beautiful and well done. The soundtrack is very nice aswell. The choice of colors and the textures are lush and well chosen.

The quality of the demo drops a bit at the skull scene and the scene just after it (the tree with the butterflies) but overall, this is one great demo!
rulez added on the 2006-08-10 20:14:03 by z5 z5
Awesome design, lots of nice effects and a soundtrack with an attitude (the moppi references might be true, but i strongly prefer this one). The postprocessing effects make it look awesomely low-fi without any "oh, look, a layer of noise" cliche.

Only "downside" is that after a few seconds I started to hope the backwards camera movement would continue that way throughout the whole demo. Sadly it didn't. Next time perhaps? ;)

My computer mostly died from this. So the video made it for this time.

No my pants are dirty.

This is awesome. Can't wait to see it with a better quality.
I second KB with the backward camera effect. It would have been so nice to develop this idea a little bit deeper.
rulez added on the 2006-08-11 23:51:10 by oxb oxb
Holy fuck!!

This is one of those rare demos that I watched with my mouth open. The presentation and design is phenomenal and the intro sequence is mindblowingly cool! Absolutely amazing!!!

My only complaint is the specs are too high for the average user! If it wasn't so memory and CPU hungry, I'd make this my coup de couer. But it's not very enjoyable to watch in realtime and I'm not ready to upgrade yet.

rulez added on the 2006-08-12 19:39:03 by earx earx
nice tune and great visuals. the growing lines has always been a cool effect and it never looked better than here. but flow and pace of the music and visuals just don't belong together. some strange scenes, too - would have liked it even better without skulls and At-ATs.
rulez added on the 2006-08-12 21:52:29 by fiver fiver
The intro scene is pure design gold! Very professional. Music is also top-notch. Some of the later scenes are great (Kewlers style dust-tentacle, massive growing thing) while some are not-so great.
Still a very thumb-up worthy production.

wry: I also had the same problem with d3dx9_30.dll. :( I ran dxdiag.exe and it said no problems. I also searched for d3dx9_30.dll and it is not on my three HDDs.

I am using the newest NVIDIA driver for my 6800 video card (128 MB; AGP).

OK. I found a fix for d3dx9_30.dll problem. Go to http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?d3dx9_30 and download it. Extract to where the demo is and start it. No more problems. I read that this was from the SDK and software are supposed to come with it. It seems like Fairlight didn't include it in its demo. :(

Demo was OK. I like the old effects, but nothing else shocked me. :(
added on the 2006-08-12 23:49:56 by AntDude AntDude
for d3dx9_30.dll, I also had the error message, and after I installed the latest dx9 drivers, it worked just fine.
for d3dx9_30.dll, I also had the error message, and after I installed the latest dx9 drivers, it worked just fine. At least until the loading bar filled, since my machine simply can't play the demo :(
must say that after the party I've found this one to be the best demo at assembly, if any demo deserves a cdc, this is the one.

congrats on the bestest demo guys

The demo is excellent! Talking about sountdrack, it looks like SFX missed (something like robot's stomps, wind over the road, etc.). Really, add some sound effects and you'll get even greater demo.

Got this to run ok on my aging 2.6 5900 box with new dx9.0c. I've seen a few of these effects before from FLT. But the clip-art stop motion style in the beginning was great. Just dissapointed it didn't continue throughout. Seems rather disjointed. Great soundtrack from Smash as usual (is there ever question?), just not an 'overwhelming' prod. Good stuff here and there.

although sluggish on my 6600GT

where's the nfo ? who made the music ? reed ?


I can not believe how this won over dietes. Its not even the same league in most respects. (esp code and music)

i thought this was good.... but not quite demo of the year good.... showed me. (not a fan of dieties, kind of glad it didnt get it)

downloaded zik, cant get enough of it.
it deserved its best demo award, definitely. i think raverboyz are crying foul because it doesn't go boom boom. :) maybe it's just too brilliant for them.

legalize's thumb down is all the more reason for my thumb up.

watching this with a brand new gfxcard helps (geforce 7600GT with AMD2400+ 1Gb RAM)... This is so nice. I wish all the demos can be like that. And now that I've been able to watch lots of missed demos because of loosy hardware, I am wondering what's so brilliant about some overhyped demos (Look at my eyes).

Great job dudes.

As usual, I love the Fairlight extrusion effects. Some _awesome_ 2d art here, and I like the spin on the classic Fairlight logo in the beginning. Overall a very solid demo and one of the year's best. Unfortunately, not as exciting as many other demos :)

Having a sense of quite a lot of work behind this one doesn't make me thumb it up.
Because it's all a bit dull.
The effects are fine enough, but they're not presented with surprise - the "boom" factor is definately missing. I find it hard to explain exactly what is missing - perhaps it's more upbeat music, but the track in itself is technically OK. Only I find it slightly boring. Maybe that's the reason? Maybe I'm just not THAT into stuff from Smash? (Shocking, I know!).. Dunno...
nutman: thats very kind of you to credit the whole production to me, but the fact is i only really did some fx. :)
added on the 2007-09-19 09:59:16 by smash smash
Wow, how the hell haven't I commented on this? Saw it back then on the screen and immediately fell in love. Gotta love the gfx & design. The code doesn't suck either. ;-)

Sorry to ay, but for me this is just a piggy. The starting zoom is cool and the Stalker with Speakers is a cool object anyway.

The latest Fairlight demos have been incredible, but this is the one that stands out most for me.

It was one of those rare demos that caused my jaw to drop, especially from the perspective of design.

Inspirational, watched it so often - and after years it helped me to come up with an idea for an invitation that was loosely based on one of the first scenes in this one.
The tune and style is just to damn awesome, and never get's old - I really still enjoy this after all these years.

A big aha moment was when I watched mindcandy with comments on, and learned that this prod was done in three days from leftovers - they didn't really explain why the butterflies fly backward though :)

i still kinda dislike the statically lit barely shaded "bad PS2 prototype graphics" looking 3D parts, but ultimately this has remained quite enjoyable over the years

the soundtrack still left much more potential to explore tho, but i get it =)
rulez added on the 2020-05-06 21:33:15 by noby noby
rly cool graphic design, but some of the middle scenes were meh, like the robot.
and as noby said, the music could use more exploration.
