Arf ! Not the usual 'T-Rex' quality !

The music is a bit flat,but modelling and texturing are nice !

added on the 2001-10-12 21:34:06 by kohai kohai
if one takes kohais comment and exaggerates all of his points, it can be used perfectly to describe this demo ;)

the models and textures have such an enormous detail, i noticed this in every scene and every second watching this cool thingie :)

BUT... guys... please choose different music with some slow and some noisy parts and not that "loopish" one for the final version ;)

Tits and dragons, the love of every adolescent male.

The music isn't bad at all, I've heard worse. Great gfx, but feels a little more aimed at gamers than sceners (at least compared to previous T-Rex stuff).

A bit late with the release, but better late than never.

well, yes, nice graphical work, especially on the models. can't say i like these kinds of demos though.

scene.org is kinda slow with updates/mirrors nowadays, it took them almost 2 days to move this one from /incoming.. and it's still not widely available.. maybe that's a good thing after all.. 8]
I'm not a big fan of this one too. too many ideas were left behind because of the lack of time. but whataheck..

Looks freakin awesome (altough the characters look a bit poser-ish), music could be better tho.
rulez added on the 2001-10-13 13:07:20 by Tciny Tciny
I don't get what's so great about it - simply boooring IMHO, and the music sucks.

However, it's technically wellmade, so no "sucks" either.

Textures and modeling are fantastic with some very nice motion on the dancing figure. Coding seems pretty slick too, but the music is bland.
rulez added on the 2001-10-14 07:36:41 by sea_monkey sea_monkey
"could have been much better" blablah :) it's yet a nice one. respect for the modelling! i don't think the music sucks so much either. the whole thing is just not really impressive. but its better than many others which get lotsa "rulez" votes.
rulez added on the 2001-10-14 13:26:34 by cp_ cp_
I have just seen it. Really nice and beautifull thing! A gothic atmosphere full of dragons, angels, demons, an elf woman magician, lot's of particles,.. cool textures and modeling. The music perhaps fits the theme, it's nice...

Really good thing. Perhaps gamers thing people would say, but I like it. I should watch this demo again... (I have just seen it once from an InternetCafe and I have 2 go now :P)

*wow* really cool textures and nice modelling. I think the music is ok. Thumbs up!
rulez added on the 2001-10-19 20:45:43 by Fzool Fzool
Not really impressive, the music is quite bad, sorry... But there are good ideas, but the best ones were ripped from 3dsmax 4 samples scenes (dragon, wind around the demon).
I prefer usual T-Rex originality.
added on the 2001-10-23 10:08:30 by Sanx Sanx
Well... the 3D Engine is good !!! that's all ! =)
rulez added on the 2001-10-23 11:27:32 by Stv Stv
The part which I like the most, and is a bit surprised that noone else has commented on, is the dancer early in the demo. Lovely movement, and the particles spraying from his hands is a really nice touch :) And I also liked the hands with the metaballs.
For the music I must say that it would have been better if the guitar-riff had been sampled as a whole. Riffs made out of one muted and one open stroke seldom sounds good :) But the guitar definately fit, it's just not done well enough.
Oh and yeah.. why the hell do I get frameskips in the endprt, when I have a 1.2ghz athlon and a GeForce2? That should not have been necessary :/
Anyway, I like the mood in the demo, so a "rulez" from me as well :)
rulez added on the 2001-10-23 12:54:38 by lug00ber lug00ber
As everyone else, let me comment on the amazing modelling. Also the fluid animation of the dancer in the beginning is absolutely astonishing. I have to question the choice of colors in some of the scenes, though. Still, good work.
rulez added on the 2001-10-23 14:45:13 by fractalgp fractalgp
booring 3d flyby. oh, there are particles. anyway. a little bit of mipmapping wouldn't hurt, and someone should look very close at the examples of 3d-max. if they had ripped the music, this demo would have been better.
added on the 2001-10-30 13:52:41 by chaos chaos
Fantastic ... i love this one, the engine rulez, the models are very detailed and the texture maps are .. well fantastic (see the wall drawing near the end of the demo, at the roof)
I was stunned when i saw the metaballs in the hands, i mean it's not something new or anything ... just metaballs and .. hands but it fits so good designwise that left me with my jaw hanging..
Aahh the particles are fantastic, makes you want to include particles in your engine imidiatly (every 3dengine should have a particle system anyway)
And ofcourse don't forget about the dancer ... ah wonderfull .. and the models.. did i mention how i love the models ? and the textures ?
DAMN I LOVE IT ... thumbs up for this one!
rulez added on the 2001-11-01 10:36:50 by Nuclear Nuclear
okay i must admit that the skinning is nice.. but some of the models don't look very good (artifacts). maybe it's because of my card (gf2mx), but i don't think so. i didn't like the music either. i prefer abstract stuff instead of this :)
added on the 2001-11-01 11:41:03 by superplek superplek
not my kind of demo i guess. but some nice things in this one anyhow, the dancer was cool :)
added on the 2001-11-01 11:49:57 by bruce bruce
First, I'd like to say that I hate medieval stuff, dragons, elfs, witches, wizards etc.

BUT this demo is fantastic. It has probably the best models I've ever seen, they smell like poser but I don't mind. The dancing human in the beginning is excellent, to the point that I am really wondering how they did it (motion capture? how? and who danced?!? :-) The textures are very nice too and the design is fluid. The only thing that bothered me is the guitar riff in the middle which sounds rather bad. Also, the naked lady in the fire could use some... clothes :-)

Apart from that, it's just excellent! A definate recommendation! :-)

looks cool, but don't really like the music. and i wouldn't say i like this kind of demos either.
added on the 2001-11-25 12:24:00 by rjv rjv
Very very good. The models are amazingly impressive, and the textures are beautiful and clear. I think that everybody should see this one, especially fans of epic stuff.
rulez added on the 2001-11-26 01:21:19 by zafos zafos
Fantastic models, but the wall and floor textures look just a bit too bland.

The music creates a nice atmosphere, however, despite sounding erratic in places.

Very cool, Music rockss in every way, modelling and scenes are very good, but it is simple demo with goog scenes, but not that beautifull abstract demo like "Broadband". I like BB much better. But this demo is cool too
rulez added on the 2001-12-11 17:27:27 by Trauma Zero Trauma Zero
the character animations in this prod rules, but im not that keen on demos with 3dscenes like this, and i didnt like the music much either.
added on the 2001-12-11 17:34:28 by a_lee_n a_lee_n
mm...actually this demo is perfect. I've got nothing else to say.
rulez added on the 2001-12-16 19:57:58 by JDruid JDruid
Yes. One of the rare highlights in 2001. Although the nfo file states that the demo needs 500Mhz and plenty of RAM, it runs (to my surprise) pretty well on my K2+TNT+64MB.

Great modelling and textures, nifty code and nice music, some cool ideas too (the dancer, hands with metaballs... ). I like this one more than broadband. :)

I'm not interested in the theme, but I have to say it rules anyway because the quality is a little shocking compared to usual (and I even like the sound of the music, except for the synth heavy guitar stuff near the end)
rulez added on the 2002-01-12 02:02:57 by bigcheese bigcheese
oh yeah.. and parts are really beautiful. I noticed bad aliasing problems with some textures on the walls though. Mipmapping should have engaged at a closer distance, but didn't (on TNT2).
added on the 2002-01-12 02:05:39 by bigcheese bigcheese
This demo is absolutely flawless. It is actually one of my favorites. With the "mysterious" ambience created by the colors, lighting, and music, and the theme, it just seems soooo awesome.
I also love this medieval fantasy genre, and I am a big fan of "Lord Of The Rings", and the "Samellion" (I think that's how you spell it but I'm not sure).

The music is crap, but somewhat works with the demo.
But the visuals are very impressive, by far the crispest testures i have seen in any demo yet. worth the download and a thumb up.

Ups: looks cool, textures are detailed and the female models are very pretty. A couple cameras are very nice.

Downs: Bland music, noisy textures and poor lighting design & code.

A nice demo, not up to par with 604 that's for sure.

Portions of it (dancer anim, dragons) may have been ripped from 3DSMax samples... that would be quite lame, let's hope that's not the case.
rulez added on the 2002-05-05 15:10:58 by Jare Jare
Damn, I like that atmosphere!
The animation is not that interesting, except the dancer in the beginning. But texture, light and color usage is pretty appealing.

this demo is like a big puzzle game, finding and matching the ripped example data to the corresponding programs. also poser models should be forbidden unless one can bother to fix the cracks in them. errr.

If it wouldn't be shouting "ripped gfx", it would have deserved a rulez, but ripping sux

Almost all of the graphics is "borrowed" here or there, including the dancer movements, and the dragons, and maybe even the church. I recall having seen the woman on the oldish model collection too. Oh well. Nontheless.
