One of the classic PC "megademos" of its day. I couldn't get a screenshot, but they're not working now anyway. :/

a classic, OK, but DAMN it's boring...

hmmm, I think I actually have to give this demo a "rulez". as I watched it (it worked in dos7.10 on my p3) again in the process of grabbing some screenshots I must really say that is has some killer effects (like the shaded vectorworld in the beginning), much better than I remembered. It's still quite a bit boring though,...

and sorry about the screenshots, but when the screengrabber was loaded, it took my comp in excess of 1 hour and 10 minutes to get to the "warp"-logo which is about 30 seconds into the demo :)

If memory serves right, this thing is running on Sindbad (386+ PM engine), so it won't run with EMM386 or other DOS extenders, such as Windows. It also has this config thingy, which detected all gfx cards and processors available to the date of release.
The development of Warp was way "distributed", when the coder and GFX folks met in Hamburg, and the sounds were done in Rhein-Main and transferred via modem.
I think that the Pharao Mask part was the first real Gouraud realtime shader on x86, though I'm not quite sure.
There are also some hidden key combinations while the prod is running, but I forgot them, somehow, over the years.

hi alpha :)
actually the mask was shaded in phong plus reflection mapping - and no one else did something like this before on x86.
press "a", then "n" during the mask part and you get to see a bouncing wobbly lens effect.
many greetings from nomad, too.

i managed to get this hog to run with dosbox 0.65. use the following command line switches:
warp -S1 -A240 -AD
add -P3 to go to the phong parts.
