goddamn kickass invitation demo.

Because of this I just had to get to make wired98 inv, but on the other hand I knew I could never outrank this one.

skypher: It's listed in the demo hidden parts list (which I used to maintain) at http://www.inf.bme.hu/~mandula/secret.txt (figured that could use a plug :).

phred said it best. Still impressive even when I fired it up a couple months back.

that was a great one! the music, the movement, the scenario, the textures.. :O:O!!

One of the greatest pieces of code I'd ever seen at the time. To think that he did this in such a short time is simply marvelous! Statix rulez.

Excellent music, design and graphics too - and of course it was a fairly original.

runs under dosbox by using the /n option of the invitro.

I'm very impressed by this!!

1997 - DAMN.

I still remember being impressed like fuck back then. Too bad the party didn't _really_ live up to that standard ;)

Firstly you will need plenty of RAM (>12 Megs)
those were the times <3

and the invitro looks incredibly good

<3 to Acme. This was really different and I remember how much I liked it when I ran it.

Ha yes I remember that of course, nice interactive-wipeout-invit-demo :)

Best invite intro ever!

Seriously a jaw dropper and technically superb for it's time. This had RGB lighting was released inbetween Quake(greyscale lighting) and Unreal(RGB).. but unlike unreal it didn't require(or even use?) MMX!

I think it was partly this that made molyneux proclaim statix as the best coder in the industry in some interview. (the reporter thought he was talking about Carmack)

This was really cool at the time, indeed. Didn't really feel like a proper invitation, but meh. The tech made up for it.
