Made in a few days to contribute to the Euskal, still needs a lot of synching work. Don't expect any mindblowing stuff :)
I didn't have time to test it properly but it ran fine on nvidia 6600/6800 cards and on a radeon 9700. There seemed to be some problems during the compo though, even if it ran fine on the compomachine during the morning after we delivered it.

Also, video available here.

Nice one!

Nice and solid demo - considering that people with poor gfx-hardware are going to cry inbetween...

It did not make kool demoxok to the japanese brain at the party. It ran like shit.

Cool demo. I still prefer Arise. It seems recycled.

Even if made in few days, I still liked it a lot. Yes, maybe not like the older Stravaganza demos, but still cool and soundtrack and atmosphere blows! It's a great presentation.

Great stuff, looked good all the way through except for the 'ioniser' part which looked like it was waiting for an effect. The tune particularly was great.

experience with that style (disco-flyer... does it have a name btw? ;) makes it nice.

Nothing special in the visual department. Bunch of random nice looking scenes. Music's nice in the background but doesn't really stand alone. Overall good enough for a thumb.

the electric effect was nice, the rest was very longstretched and feeling rather empty.

It was ok, but the colour scheme was horrible in some places.

erm, tune is great but still it was a bit boring also it lacks some action, seriously... still it's quite good.

nice one!
rulez added on the 2007-07-23 23:02:17 by blackpawn blackpawn
pretty static at the beginning, gets better then. The tune is good, nice breakz, twisted sounds and melodies.
The 3D engine is very slow though, slow with antialias 4X on 2,88Ghz core2duo + nvidia 7600GT.
looks rushed but okk

Stravaganza! No all time favorite demo, but a nice one, thumb up!
rulez added on the 2007-07-24 01:07:36 by imYemeth imYemeth
Really cool stuff and style.

Imbusy: before giving it a thumb down because "it ran slow on your 8800", did it occur to you that it could be a drivers issue? It runs fine on my 6600.

Bloody hell! I really loved it, looked great but the song was brilliant! Great shit for Stravaganza!!!

if this is rushed then i can't wait until stravaganza really sits down and works hard on a prod. :)
rulez added on the 2007-07-24 10:59:54 by gloom gloom
In my opinion the first scene is too long and the entire demo needs more energy but anyway it's nice to see that you guys are still there :)

I am waiting for new effects also. Despite of that, the final result is more than acceptable, and the music rules, as usual!
rulez added on the 2007-07-24 11:33:19 by merlucin merlucin
the code needs a little optimization... but the music is Awesome !!!!

Does your musician have a website ?
Amazing tunes!!...
rulez added on the 2007-07-24 14:47:38 by amiga4ever amiga4ever
I like it a lot better than previous Stravaganza demos I've seen. More demo, less game.

Also, Imbusy, are you sure its not only your head that runs a bit hot?

I'm sorry, but there really seems to be a problem with newer Geforce Cards - on my Pc (2,4 DualCore, 2 Gig Ram, 8600 GTS) the parts with the lightrays and with the turbines (?) turn into a slideshow...

Otherwise this is a really nice production! Not on the same level as "Arise" but the music rocks!

Could be better, perhaps like Arise. :)

Very nifty one :) Congrats chaps !
The music has this scenish touch I like but would have been better with an enhanced mix and less distortion in the low frequencies. That needs more mellow in the low freq, but eh, good job anyway ;)

a little bit slow for me, and quite different from "stravanganza style", but... ok :D
rulez added on the 2007-07-26 13:52:34 by xphere xphere
Sometimes runs as a slideshow on my geforce 7600GT.

Besides that, I like it.

Well polished and eyecandy, just only I think it's too "slow" at times. Nice sync and great music.

BTW, runs fine in my laptop. ATI Mobility Radeon X1400. Too bad the compomachine didn't think the same.

Like some people said before me, it needs more energy & action. Deserves a thumb anyway.

Some scene sare choppy and the beginning was too long.

For those who with a Nvidia card who experience severe slowdown in some scenes: Look into your 3d-Settings in the Nvidia control panel. You’ll find an option called "Threaded optimization" (or something like that, I'm running the german drivers here). If this option is set to "On", just switch it to "Auto". This will do the trick...
added on the 2007-08-07 11:45:26 by Stebo Stebo
Thanks! I was wondering what the problem could be. I'll take a look at it as soon as I get my hands on one of those :)

Very nice design and almost killer 3d scenes. How in earth you got so simple scenes to work so well? Nice glitchy tune also :) You could have used those 2d overlays more suptly...
rulez added on the 2007-08-09 22:35:01 by pahamoka pahamoka
It's a bit of a 3d-rotator for my taste, but otherwise quite nice. I like the slow pace.

Excellent demo. In my humble opinion, the 2advanced style overlays doesn't match with the sans-serif font used... but just an opinion.

And very cool 3d scenes.
I like this demo though I do not think best demo of sgz.

pretty cool. i love the end, although simple, the way the logo comes out at you, certainly wakes you from a slow view.

I didn't quite get the overall point, but the music kicks ass and some of the scenes are very beautiful.

Very good modelling and distance mapping and particle FX and model fragmenting animations.

But there is a sore : Lighting was in gouraud mode and polys are seen easily.
