My very first demo. FreeBASIC code by Clyde, song by me :)
ok for a firsty. a bit boring due to heavy reuse of simple and overused effects.

uns3en_, I don't know about Clyde, but at least I have never been to a party yet... maybe I'll go to Breakpoint (which is the nearest one) next year, dunno yet! :)
btw, how it the upper left effect named ? i can't put a name on it :(
simple LUT effect in the upper left. anyway, for a firstie this is ok even tho the code is incredibly slow. plus, what las said. effects were ok but that text writer looked horrible. :)

yeah "LUT effect", i expected a dedicated name :)
movetable effect. That covers tunnels, squirters and distorters :)

Not a bad first prod.

For a first prod, yes, it's good. Thumb up to motivate.

Ok, thumbs up for creating something and now some constructive criticism:

- Free basic thing can be fitted in to intro size. You guys didn't probably even try it too hard but shouldn't be a big thing to try to fit it 64k or less.
- Color scheme was rather coherent but nevertheless was ugly
- The effects are ugly except "fire balls" which I liked the best :)
- The effects looked too much "oh, I've seen that already a thousand times"
- Bad effect transitions
- Improvements in the music section would be more than welcome
- Not many are actually interested in the text which seemed to be half of the demo. If you're going to put shitloads of text there next time make some nice effects to back them up.

Hm, some misunderstanding here... it's just >my< first demo (as a musician), Clyde did some stuff before... But thanks for the comments anyway! ;-P
Oh btw, it's 177 KB, like Debris, isn't that much kewler than 64kb no? ^_^
We'll work on it...
virus Win32/NSAnti found. wont run anyway... winxpsp2-x1400

rmeht, after a quick search, I've found out that this is a heuristic detection. Could you please upload the demo zip to your antivirus software's manufacturer so they can fix this issue? Most manufacturers have an upload form on their website for these issues.
Great effects, so keep going ! But lack of pace. So piggie. :)

You could do better if you put your mind to it Clyde but not bad at all.

very nice one!

I actually liked this one. Ok,. maybe some effects seem before but they look nice and are smooth enough here and there are a lot of stuff and nice colors :)

some effects seem = some effects are already seen

I've been finding "Win32/NSAnti" in a bunch of demos and intros lately.. and this is the first time anyone else has mentioned it. I figured this is a false positive due to a cruncher in combination with an update to my AVG virus definitions, but perhaps it's correct?

Win32/NSAnti is a heuristic detection that may proactively detect new malware for the Win32 platform which has been packed with NSAnti.

But it's not packed with NSAnti...? So yes, it's just a heuristic detection which means that there's *possibly something*...
I really respect your work and like oldskool stuff, but honestly I have to say that this even wouldn't have been a killer demo 15 years ago.

Good, nice effects but would like to see transitions and more happening than one effect at a time.

Nice for a 1st prod, music is very similar in style to those done by Pink(Examples: http://aminet.net/mods/chip/ays-p100.lha a most excellent chip pack!) but maybe it's just due to some of the samples used.
