the best thing rendered by plasticator
rulez added on the 2007-06-05 14:38:44 by zeebr zeebr
interesting rendering worthy of a thumb (foxy style). Bit light on content I felt for a demo, maybe 64k next time?

Doesn't work on my system. :/ It opens a window or something that disappears immediately. Unfortunately, that is all it does. :(

Thanks, the final works fine for me. :) I like the somewhat messed up visuals, looks pretty interesting. Music is nice but doesn't really fit I think. Nice demo. =)

nice tutorial on how to ruin good effects with horrible colors and extremly cheesy crap music.
respect.

It doesn't seem to run right. The graphics are all blocky and buggy looking, and it only looks to be about 16 colours.

Please tell me this is a bug and not some attempt to look "arty".
zeebr: No you did not! The version you posted doesn't run on my system, the one Manwe posted does.

shane: im starting to hope that its a nasty ATI bug actually. either that or everyone in russia has very slow machines and only watches slideshow frames of the thing, hence not noticing how fucking horrible it actually looks moving.. what a waste of content and time..
added on the 2007-06-05 16:26:03 by psenough psenough
Very cool. The music has nothing to do with the visuals but it's synced :D
Runs great here.

well, no 'bug' sadly.. on nvidia it looks ugly too :)

zeebr, yup, exe size is the same, but filenames, dates, and binaries itself are different. manwe posted a newer version.

about the demo: don't like the music, but visuals are quite impressive.

In that case, here is the thumb. What goes through someone's mind when they release stuff this ugly?

This one is better than the Viewport intro, because some of the scenes are looking nice. I still don't understand why most scenes are looking so unsharp and why you use so many strange colours. Music is totally boring again which is not good for a musicdisk promotion.

People who have found visuals messed up should simply wait for the musicdisk.
And, again, we've used exactly right track for promo, because the idea was to show the people how conservative most of contemporary demo soundtracks are: ten years with idm/dnb/electro and nowbody still can beat Dune and Mellow-D. So, we decide to bring you to the pre-Orange era with such "naive" tune.

I like something in this, regardless the strange visual (are they done in purpose?)

music is great!
screenshots are great too:) Too bad the demo itself doesn't run on my crappy comp. What videocard does it need?

still okay - not far away from a thumb down ;-)

Nice scenes mixed with ugly and unimaginative ones. I like the high-contrast saturated rendering here and there... the music is terrible to my ears tho.

dune and mellow-d are gods, lets all go back to making horribly cheesy tunes to compensate. yes, i see the logic now. it all makes sense. damn if only i could take my downthumb away!!

give me enough wodka and mushrooms and i´ll love this demo.
no, seriously, the music is too far out and isn´t fitting. there are some nice ideas on the visual aspect, but it´s looking too strange for my taste.
i´d like to see this on a higher resolution than 800x600...

Some very nice effects here and there, but, seriously, ask ME for music next time. ;)

I watched this at 8 am and somehow I feel I should have waited for tonight. Soundtrack sounds like someone digged out old Jester from the Amiga times. Unfortunately the effects seem to be randomly put together and what PS said is right, the effects were ruined by the ugly colours. Nevertheless I'm going to listen to the musicdisk and hope for a big variety of tracks.

Don't worry, PS, I can submit your vote :)
And as Chromag said, "sounds like someone digged out <i>old Jester from the Amiga times</i>" - that's what we exactly means. So, it's all right.

None of the f0x/plasticator demos display correctly on my machine due to some kind of bug. I mostly see a full black screen or a full white screen, sometimes with a black or white bar across it.

My gfx card is a GeForce 6600 GT, running with x64 vista drivers..

Hmm.. not quite for me. The tune, yes, had a real oldschool feel to it. Problem there isn't that we've just lost the oldschool musicians - it's that we've moved on, and this style is no longer popular. Perhaps it could work a lot better with more of an oldschool style visual theme, check out some recent equinox intros.

The visuals are good in places, but suffer from 'more is less' a lot I reckon.

just watched the video - great intro - nice effects and nothing wrong with colors. Not many people can do something like this nowdays. And music reminds me music from synthesized world 1 - so I'm looking forward to new musicdisk! hope it will be out soon.

well this music wasn't that convincing, but let's see if you'd really come up with some sounds that beat mellow-d

Agrh, Ger, don't be stupid :) Nobody can't beat Dune and Melow-D, amen! So, better go and track 4mat-like chiptunes, like Razor1911 and many others do :)

This is a best example for being caught in fx land, yet. Even if you could do even worse things with pixelshaders, this production will stay a milestone in teaching design, sync and composition.

This is probably one of the greatest demos I've seen! Not only it brings that special scene feeling that makes you wanna fly, but it's also so optimitic and full of flashing lights and warm! Nowadays lots of demos are doomy or depress with the amount of metal or huge construction, this is something different.
As for the music, this is just a masterpiece. The melody is so much demoscene and yet so fresh and sweet... words fail me... an absolute favourite, thanks SandS!!!
