The fact that its a 4k for MacOSX is indeed a strong point in favor, but the intro itself is not that breathtaking.

I think the music is worthy of a thumb - much more "go" than the usual 4k music. The effect got a bit tedious after a while.

Don't know what's so difficult about 4ks on macos, but this is as 'bleh' as it gets.

4k compressor tool - now thats real size coding, writing your own compressor too. Respect.

This is the closest sharp edges will ever get to a Macintosh
okay, 4k on the mac means "we can only do cubes in this filesize"? sorry, please moar effects next time.

For the innovation.

Nice, actually very impressive to see a 4k with reasonable effects and good sound on osx. I really liked the music actually :)

The linker-compressor and music player / music was made in the weeks before and during the party, the gfx made entirely during the party. Props to Jix, he party coded from friday afternoon till saturday afternoon with no sleep, again! (he did the same as last year for Odd Norton). Thanks to Kenny Beltrey for advice on percussion sound generation o/ :) Muncho release is coming soon, once a friendlyish UI is added - lets see some nice 4Ks mac coders!

I wish to have 4k compressor for osX! W00t (:
Uggly as hell but luckily I do know that technical wise this intro is really well done due to the fact that it's OS X we're talking about. But still hoping that next time it would actually sound and look good instead of only being yet another technical merit. :)

didn't like it at all (except the music had some moments), and since i don't get the whole mac point, i'll just thumb according to what i saw.

Well done, I like it. Wanna see more Mac-stuff!

This is a great achievement, I can't wait for your linker to be released :) As stated in the .nfo file, this is the first real 4Kb application ever released for MacOS X, and with real I mean that it isn't an file that the user must execute in the terminal. And it even has music! (and good music, nothing compared with the typical and easy bass and drums).

Please, consider releasing the sources of this little thing, this will server to put a bit of fresh air in the mac demoscene!

Finally I got around to release the linker, including a small example that should help everyone getting into mac 4k coding (video & audio setup) :) grab it here: http://pouet.net/prod.php?which=51324

segfaults - i'm running tiger
@guardian: yeah binaries generated with muncho probably only work with leopard and onwards as apple changed the way executables are initialized with the dynamic linker and the system in 10.5
