Made by Cakeman and Dinoman, aka Krueger/Equinox and Steprate/Equinox.

They made this small demo for the Gen4 contest in a few days but they did not release it under the name Equinox for some reason :)

The rotative scroller was really cool for that time (a little bit similar to the one from the RSI megademo on Amiga but also featuring a kind of fake reflection on the landscape water).

Main menu is in fullscreen, both Steem and Saint emulators don't manage to run it properly. Press F1 to F5 when the main menu appears.

Thanks for adding it Keops ! I´d almost forgotten it ;)

I watched it on my then-girlfriends st in the year of 1993! It was on one of her disks she got with the computer, and she didnt even had a silent clue what this stuff was ...

Its not the greatest demo of all time, but its giving me some nice memories ;)

Another great addition to pouët!
Lovely demos. With some real classics like Fred's new horizon mod in first screen.
Sweet rotative scroller indeed.
Too bad the main menu is ruined by emus.
What kind of menu they put?

Gen 4 contest have to be complete!
Thanks a lot keops. :)

Can't try now but STEEM -STFMBORDER might solve the main menu problem

Chouette ! Ca marche :)

Keops: -STFMBORDER fixes the menuproblem. :)

Nice demo, nothing really special here but nice to watch anyway. I just have to do a hard reset after each part as I can't load any other part after 1 part was run. Very strange.

Oh, and the dinopart is copied from an old MGF Amiga demo. :)

The dinosaure was REDRAWN though, not ripped raw and I prefer the design of the Cakeman version :)
added on the 2006-12-21 21:20:38 by keops keops
I didn't say anything was ripped and actually I also like the Atari version much more.

Thumb up! Even thought it is quite old, it has something that makes it better then many other releases of that time...

who and why did somebody remove the producers?
added on the 2007-01-21 16:12:27 by ltk_tscc ltk_tscc
Why did somebody change it in the first place ? :)
added on the 2007-01-21 16:13:52 by keops keops
and whats the problem with at all doing so?

Lotek: maybe you could just trust people when they submit a prod from their friends? ;)
added on the 2007-01-21 16:27:11 by keops keops
Lotek: Dinoman and Cakeman were internal jokes in Equinox and are just fake credits, it makes no sense to have the prod here listed as a "Dinoman and Cakeman" prod, it was just a joke in the scrollers :)
added on the 2007-01-21 16:32:34 by keops keops
then list it as EXQ prod.... prods without producers do not exist... this must be an illusion then :)

then list it as EQX prod.... prods without producers do not exist... this must be an illusion then :)
added on the 2007-01-21 16:35:22 by ltk_tscc ltk_tscc
Ok ok if you want :)
I did not do it in the first place because it was not entered as an Equinox production in the Gen4 competition
added on the 2007-01-21 16:36:50 by keops keops
Nice one.

goddamnit skope, will you stop playing decade old platform wars? :P

Skope: ... so now you turn out to be the true lamer here acting like an asshole.
added on the 2008-01-15 22:20:27 by ltk_tscc ltk_tscc
Nothing more, nothing less...
@ltk: I never said i wasn't an asshole, but it is impossible for me to be a lamer since i don't use atari calculators...
Yes, you are an asshole and a lamer. Just don't forget to remove that Amiga keyboard you keep deep inside your ass, you will feel a difference.
rulez added on the 2008-01-15 23:58:25 by zoolum zoolum
For every word you say, Amiga will rock 10 times as much as Atari.
Ha ha. Perfect lamer/loser indeed, splendid.
added on the 2008-01-16 00:05:39 by zoolum zoolum
That's 70 times...
damn, stop that shit already, both sides, please. it's not 1995 anymore, stop being so fucking platform-centered.
added on the 2008-01-16 00:53:51 by dipswitch dipswitch
Demo is okay.
Lenski is only bitter because Atari beat his former company into oblivion :)

Dipswitch: Well im not dropping shit on amiga just on skope for acting like an idiot.
added on the 2008-01-16 08:40:09 by ltk_tscc ltk_tscc
Well, I think that's fine since everybody has noticed that lenski is purposely acting like that. I guess that he must be bored to death in real life.

Looks quite challenging. Some clever code-hacks here!
I wish we had EQX dudes on the Amiga! =)
