hmm, my first thoughts were "is this really for 68000? seems pretty damn slow and what's it with the missing double buffering?". Then I checked the .nfo. =) The effects are nice but too slow for a thumb up. And the missing double buffering is rather annoying IMHO. I'll check it out later on my real Amiga, maybe it runs better on the real deal. :)

Good looking effects, awesome music, OCS <3

I really disliked the music, but judging from the youtube version the effects are pretty cool and I like how the screen filter helps tidy up the chunky effects.

Nice visuals, even though they're slooow. Can't remember what the music sounded like though :)

looks like the greets have been fixed for the final version, so no thumb down ;)

Well a few downers - missing doublebuffer and really too strange music.

BUT nice effects and obligatory thumb for the DHS greetings :)

Nice colorfull polar lights, didn't seemed to be slow in the youtube link but maybe it's boosted in the video or the emul captured.

The colourscheme works for some reason, but if tunnel effects are all AMIGAAAAA can do, then I rest my case.

I've only checked the YouTube-version, but I liked what I saw. Nothing innovative, but stylish and appealing!

i only saw the youtube version but i felt too many of the effects were recycled with no added "zing"

the music is good! do poueteers hate dubstep? :(

I watched it on youtube, and the framerate seems fine to me.. is the youtube recording not from an Amiga 500?
added on the 2008-09-22 19:58:54 by evil evil
its cute and all, trying to do 68k asm demos on an old machine but it still looks like the same unique stuff (which i usually like) but its totally technically/visually hampered by either the code or the platform. please use modern hardware for your stuff, i liked it better :)

Don't let youtube fool you it makes it looking better and running faster, the particles part is dead slow on a real a500 (maybe 10 fps or so) & the rest isn't too fast either.

The no double buffer lousy trick to speed up the refreshing rate between 2 frames only makes everything uglier.

It works perfectly on a 512k/512K a500 though.

The video recording is definitely not from an A500, it's pretty damn slow on that very machine. But nice trick to post a youtube link so ppl will click that instead of watching the demo on their real machines/emulators :) I might do that next time too when I can't optimise my effects enough :D (sorry, could not resist :D)

Improving all the time
rulez added on the 2008-09-22 21:20:59 by Marq Marq
yeah the youtube video is from uae emulating an a500 but not with cycle exact mode (in which the sounds don't work) and it's way faster than on a real a500 x) Didn't know the difference was so huge when i was coding the effects so it was quite a nightmare seeing it on an a500.
Basically only the polar lights run decently. It was shown on an a600 in the compo so the people at the party saw the real speed.
oh well.. at least i have something to improve on next time:)
added on the 2008-09-22 21:48:38 by dodke dodke
and having no double buffer is not really a trick. originally I wasn't aware that it was gonna be so slow and thought I'd just save memory and not have double buffering since it didn't look that bad. later on (at the party when the demo was almost done) I was just too lazy to add it since I would have needed to implement changing the copperlist to write to in a LOT of routines.
added on the 2008-09-22 21:59:46 by dodke dodke
maybe it could be faster, but its still stylish and the music is definitely cool, keep it up!
rulez added on the 2008-09-22 22:55:46 by faaret faaret
hmm watched it in UAE, [x] cycle-exact, [x] match A500 speed, 68010, 4MB chip RAM and it ran fine..do I have to dig out my dusty 'ole miggy to verify that UAE is really so misleading ?!
thumbs up for coding demos for the one true Amiga platform (OCS, that is!), anyway ;)
intro is very short but nice.

rulez added on the 2008-09-23 01:07:05 by xyz xyz
68010? 4MB Chip Ram? WTF? Try it with 68000 (68010 speeds up loops) and 512/512.
added on the 2008-09-23 01:12:42 by StingRay StingRay
ok, StingRay, retried it w/ 68000, 512k chip, 512k slo-mem in UAE and I can now see the tearing artifacts. Framerate is a lot worse now, only the strobe effect runs at decent speed :/
Now I'm curious: Is the UAE.mulation correct, was the 68010 really so much faster ?!!
added on the 2008-09-23 01:30:28 by xyz xyz
Nice and colorful
rulez added on the 2008-09-23 06:25:27 by dairos dairos
hermes...in a500 mode winaue is quite accurate... i think it's not only the 68010... so far i remember if you switch to 4mb in winaue some of the memory behaves like fastmem...
so the custom chip don't slow down the cpu because of the dma...
but using 4mb is quite senseless... there is no real machine which can do this...so far i remember...

not bad, but the effects are blocky and slow, the music is lacking some variety...

rulez for OCS, watched it on 1200 though.
rulez added on the 2008-09-23 23:00:18 by dimouse dimouse
First of all: thanks for forcing me to re-setting up my 500 baby to watch it :) ... I'll need that for real-testing own stuff anyway.

Well, it really is dead slow on the A500 and the missing double buffering blahblah snahsnah but it works. The colourscheme, however, is quite pleasing and fits to the tune (mostly cold).
So here's a neutral thumb BB Image
On the other hand I'd like to refer to the comments I did on hardkneelotus.

I know I might not be the right one to say this, but this stuff is pissing me off... Try to do something slightly more creative on the effects side, will you?

Music and design is good as always though (except for the completely useless particles...)

And of course; thanks for caring enough to atleast release something for OCS

This is one fantastic demo. I love the effects despite the framerate issues. An exceptional taste in colors and the design overall. This thumb mainly goes for the music though, which is absolutely amazing, especially for a 4 channel mod file. One of my favorite demo tracks even, big up!
