For the record: This intro was uploaded to scene.org and pouet around 06:00-08:00 on the 28th whilst the competition was held at 05:00.
not bad, but more fx won't hurt. loses synch sometimes (watched at the office on g450).

i know it's lame that the author is replying in this forum, but : READ THE FUCKING NFO BEFORE YOU COMPLAIN!
The screen flicker problem occurs when vertical sync is turned off. This intro worked fine after I turned it on. (Windows ME, Geforce DDR)

good music, good fx, good intro.

macaw, and was I complaining? nope, I wasn't. I was just stating that what's written in the nfo is true. so chill man. 8)

the music is good! but.. mmm.. some "nean der taler" recycled effects :) the synchro isn't good, "times new roman" in a demo sux. Need a better synchro. More effects. Code it better please! Some parts are very slow with my geforce2!

it's ok, but too much "deja-vu"

I'd suggest you spend more time on your intros from now on. Less quantity, more quality.

overall nice intro, some stuff was seen before in "neandertaler". good music.

Stuff we've seen before, too little of it to justify the length. But they did manage to fuck up my retina's, I'll give them that =)

Nice fast paced visuals and a killer soundtrack.

- Too much blue/purple/dunno/I/am/almost/colorblind
- The release version is more than 64Kb
- Half the planet runs with vsync off to maximize framerate. This one requires it to be on.
- When you run it as a window and you quit it, the music goes on forever. You must kill it using the task manager.
- The scene's most decorated lamer worked on it.

So it sucks.

saying "it sucks"..? well, we're all entitled to your opinions, but that was a bit harsh. i liked it. i must admit i thought the blue version of "nean der taler" in the beginning puzzled me, but the music rocked and the intro made quite an impression on the dudes here at tp.

I liked it too. It sucks nevertheless.

I like the intro.
Music and some effect was cool.
rulez added on the 2001-12-29 14:56:12 by got got
cool, three or four scenes switching fast as hell and monotonous music.

btw: if you cut the pictures at the beginning, this is completely 4k-able...

btw. if you watch more than 2minutes and 30seconds you will see more than blue colors, i guess none of you did that.

For me the winner... music is excelent, plus good ideas...
Are you rasmus ?

Do we really need more winamp-plugins?

Awful music, ugly effects, boring.

hehe, relax guys, this was not meant to be serious. i mean i like this kind of music and think teis is awesome; so i slammed something together in a hurry and made it synch to everything.

for some reason the fullscreen mode doesn't work here (i get an error -- running w2k with a geforce2gts) so i had to watch it in windowed mode.

same boring effects going on for too long. i personaly don't like the music.. just some repetitive noise. this intro could have been very cool (some of the effects are "interesting") but unfortunately the intro is not. no design really, it looks like a simple winamp plugin.

moT, YOU are the lamer (and me, of course), but not macaw/rasmus.

macaw, i like your intros very much, and it was imho a very great idea to remix nean der taler. But it would be really great if you would've spend more time on it. The music is ok (After a while you begin to _understand_ it!)
But this one is _too_ psychedelic.. =)
I'd like to see more of the "story" element which you had partially implemented in nean der taler (i.e. kind of exceed's heaven seven). This one isn't better than any of your other intros, but it's not totally crap (like I said in my nean der taler comment.. =)
Stay well.

Hoëk, moT was refering to the fact, that rasmus didn't show much respect to other sceners work so far and that he is (was?) quite rude in his posts.

However, I don't think that he's a so-called "lamer", he just seems to have fun with provoking and dragging everybody down. :)

recycled. minimal synchro+(gives more the impression of scenes being thrown at you randomly than being sequenced). no transition . no effects. interesting hardstep chiptune.
added on the 2002-01-11 20:39:21 by _-_-__ _-_-__

a) does everybody think this is a neanderthaler remix since it includes some artwork but further has no similarities with neanderthaler at all

b) does everybody talk about rasmus, because that's exactly what he's aiming had with his sharp posts

there you go rasmus ;)

Oh, and it runs smooth on a TNT2+P333...

And I don't care what RasMacaw says as long as he doesn't talk about our prodz :))

Medium stuff, a bit chaotic.
I like more NeanDerTaler.
Some more gfx wouldn't have hurted, but it's worth to watch.

What I saw was a very strange (strange in a good way) intro. I don't know whether I should give a pigface or a thumb up. Maybe it is only that strange for me because the partyversion fucked up and I watched the final without rebooting before. Even my browser does some strange effects while scrolling down I've seen the last time on a very old machine... :)
Ah, I was close to thumbing it down, as this really isn't a style I like. It would be unfair downthumbing it. But, really. I do not like that. And it also isn't impressing me in any way.
