I loved the music the most. But the colors aren't actually my cup of tea. Overall is quite good.

started promising, even though there are some glitches. ends really uninspired. piggy.

I kind of have to agree with earx here.. the buildup was awesome, but the repeated effects kind of ruined it for me.

like has been said, started good, then wandered off. last year's atz 4k was better.

Yep, the start was very nice, the music rocks.

agreed, the flow is not that good in the intro.
but it was completely done at the partyplace in a hurry because we couldnt get our original planned 4k down to the size limit in the last weeks.
so this is a fallback intro anyway. next one will be better again :)

slippy: didnt run? if it doesnt crash i guess you just have to wait a little longer. the precalc process for the song can be quite lengthy, due to the complexity of the song/instruments. it takes ~45 secs on my machine. gfx window init comes after the sound precalc, cause i noticed some errors in the sound when the gfx are initialized before the sound is calculated. so if it doesnt crash, chances are high it's just still precalculating the sound :)

Awesome music :)

could watch the save version only, but that was in lores. :/
from what i saw in the bp.stream... that makes it a ruling 4k intro! :)

Doesn't work on my Vista. When it's switching graphics mode after precalc it crashes.

shame you guys couldnt squeeze the real one into 4k...
added on the 2008-03-28 20:38:46 by auld auld
for a party hack it's quite nice, specially the tune is cool. however, it's not really my cup of tea (even though it has cubes :D), a bit too boring after a while. still a solid 4k, looking forward to seeing your next one. :)

Guilty piggy. Feel like I should rate a little higher, but just could not stand the blur, even if technical.

Doesn't run for me (WinXP, GF 7900GS). After sound precalc the window closes and nothing happens, no crash, no nothing. :-(
added on the 2008-03-29 10:31:35 by Grathak Grathak
did crash here (oldish Athlon XP2500+ / GF6800 / 1GB mem / XP SP2)

Grathak, beavis77:
you tried the safe versions in the archive too?
if its a dll thats missing you should be informed with those versions.
i'll provide a video tonight

Next one must be better.

Thanks, 20_lowres_safe.exe runs without a problem - seems I downloaded the production too soon, I originally got a .zip with only the 20_party.exe in it. ;-)
rulez added on the 2008-03-31 23:18:58 by Grathak Grathak
grathak, you didnt download too soon, because if the safe version runs it simply means your monitor couldnt handle the 1920x1080 resolution of the party version :)

The opening sequence made me drool. That was sooooooo impressive. The atmosphere was perfect. I didn't like the second half that much but the synth and the tune are phenomenal. Can't wait to see your upcoming bigbang. Gopher and pOWL: major respect.

<3 it.
Ok, the end is quite repetitive, but the first scene, the "spirit", the greet part and the music are f* great !
My personal favourite in the compo :d.

Nice partyhack.
Buildup was great, and the cube-mesh was a real crowd-pleaser :-)
Greatings part was ugly, and it was too repetetive.
But the music was great.

Great pacing, and pretty good design for 4K.

Well, I wouldn't call it bad. But it's not special either. Nevertheless interesting to see Alcatraz back.
