This is a STE only demo, and it won't work either on STF or Falcon (emulator users : use STeem)...
It's one of the few demo using STE capacities and that means a (good) soundtracker tune, extended palettes, lots of glenz objects and flat 3D and even a wolfenstein-like part (with no textures though)... Actually it's quite close to what could be seen in Amiga 500 demos...
excellent stuff!

brilliant demo. no more to say :)

It was an STE demo, not ST(F). One cant compare this demo to any ST(F) demo technically speaking.
It rocked though!

It's like amiga ECS and AGA, there should be 2 separate platforms for Atari as well on pouet because the hardware was pretty different.

Some really impressive code here!
I also like the introduction part a lot :)
Does it end abrupptly at the end after a grey image of a bug or something? Or is that emulators suxx???

Saw this one at the TCC'93, just a bit of it as their HDD crashed in time for the compo (now isn't this a classic?). If the full stuff had been shown, it would certainly have won the compo.

With some luck we'll see a new aggro ST(e) demo this year, preliminary reports look good..

Very, very impressive... Probably the best atari STe demos! :) Years later i still wonder how the deformation of the "fire star" is made... Maybe they are using eor-fill and a lookup table in the lineroutine? Someone can answer?
rulez added on the 2006-02-10 11:35:31 by baah baah
my only answer is... who cares anyway, the demo rocks, it doesn´t matter how it was coded ;)

Great demo!
Inspired by amiga's style (I think) gives a kicking, full of energy STe production.

Like the tune, glenzzzzzzz (rulezzzzzz), plots and logos.

Some nice effects, but i guess i'm going against the grain here by saying it dragged on a bit for me. I realyl liked the start though, and i like the dotball and landscape :)

The music was abysmal! The demo was nothing special as far as I could see, but maybe it pushed the ST more than I realise.
added on the 2008-06-23 14:00:02 by Wade Wade
Wade, this is an STe demo and compared with the ST there were not many demos produced for it. This certainly one the few that really pushed the STe hardware...

Btw, the music was not a soundtrack, but only very well designed samples... Fits very well to this energetic demo!

Some of the scenes reminded me of old school demos (e.g., Second Reality). =)

You do realize that this is just as much oldskool as is Second Reality (actually older than it), right?
added on the 2008-06-28 18:42:11 by Preacher Preacher
Shows off the STE pretty well; plenty of hardware blitter, lots of colours, nice music.

I would love to believe that the animation at the start is rendered when it says 'rendering...', but this demo does require 2 disks... :)

This I remember... Intro anim reminds me a bit of Hardwired... Cool fire-star + smooth dotlandscape. Endpart a bit too long I think. All in all, a Finnish classic.
