I wanted to see that intro, and i was bored. Sorry.
No guarantees that this intro looks anyhow like the original, but i think
it qualifies as "intro" and it's quite similar to what i remember from
seeing the original version at TP. So have fun.

And btw, of course you can get the source here.

i said it once, i'll say it again: fortnight rocks.

mfx simply got the blues.

thanks kb for this win32 port.
And thanks mfx for the original :)

oops. i managed to forget all about this one:)

heheh I ported this one a while ago, too =) Nice job ripping out SDL to keep the size down (and the reverb - I didn't bother putting that in). The linux version looks quite a bit different from this one, but oh well ;)
rulez added on the 2002-02-26 02:31:02 by ript ript
Nice design, and fairly different too. The reverb in the music fits the visulas quite nicely.

Hmm.. after watching a loading part without elevator music for 30 seconds it returns back to Windows. Any ideas?

install linux and run it from there :-) Works fine on my debian box atleast.
yay. but why is it so blue? thnx for the port kb, and also thnx for the "screw you penguin fuckers".
and thnx for mfx, you are true masters of noise.

it crashes somehow after 1 minute but what i saw was yet another mfx production which makes me say: i love mfx[tm]!
rulez added on the 2002-02-26 10:18:19 by rp rp
ends rather unexpectedly - is that a crash?..
atmospheric and weird-looking, but not mfx's best.
added on the 2002-02-26 10:28:40 by bhead bhead
ripts port here has a rounding bug (#define lrint(x) (int)(x+.5) without +.5), but didn't hang and "certain very important property" is more there;)
added on the 2002-02-26 10:56:05 by 216 216
Damn. i got the same problem as melwyn with kb's version...

but the other one works nicely and seems to be 100% accurate when compared to the original.. even 'it' is present in full effect...
added on the 2002-02-26 11:06:08 by uncle-x uncle-x
The hang seems to be another bug in the original code that slipped right through my fingers (hm, the whole thing about linux' praised "stability" seems to be that it just doesn't recognize when it has to crash)... and for the "certain property", tell me what it is, as said, i've seen the original intro ONCE before :)
added on the 2002-02-26 11:27:15 by kb_ kb_
Same here. Kb's version exits after the loading (k2,win98se,tnt,192mb), while ripts version is working perfectly.
added on the 2002-02-26 11:49:05 by tomaes tomaes
kb, take your time, the difference isn't of the kind that opens immediately:)
was i cryptic enough?
added on the 2002-02-26 12:03:18 by 216 216
Owkey. I was wrong. kb doesn't sukk. Thank you for porting this intro. Very atmospheric and nice one. mfx rokks. (I don't like only light-blue scenes).

thats cool, runs 17fps for 20 seconds, and crashes.
The stuff I saw wasnt too amazing compared to the fps.

ok, sorry, i'll never edit any lines of foreign code that i don't understand.

"it" should be in now, and maybe even the crash has gone, so try again *g*

best intro at tp, maybe best intro 2001, although not perfect. runs fine on my maschine, maybe because win98.
rulez added on the 2002-02-27 13:01:34 by chaos chaos
i still cant see whats *so* good about that intro.. ehm
added on the 2002-02-27 13:20:54 by Hatikvah Hatikvah
beautifull, marvellous atmosphere even if i'm not allways in the mood to enjoy it..

colors are just wonderfull.
forget all rgb modes it's now time for yuv ones. the colors look so different, i haven't seen any intro exploring those kind of colors before.

effects are great, especially those days where most rendering is accelerated, it's nice to see some magical looking 2d stuff.

refreshing stuff. and using some video in an intro is something rare, last one i remember was a coma intro.
the music was really nice too.

though a bit unfinished, not that perfect, effets don't look as clean as super luxus lemmen paketti. but well they ran a bit out of time..
and the tp11 intro compo at 5 in the morning mostly destroyed it.

thanks kb and ript for taking some time to port it to windows. i guess it was a hard job ..
and nice act from FR in giving half of their intro prize to mfx, respect.

Mfx owe again some beer for a win32 porting (phn started the trend :D).
Jarno, please consider using w32 at some point, since this might turn out to be quite expensive beer-wise...

Oh yes. yes. freshest demo to pass thru my mind for a while. open source too, whooo - now here is a good reason to reboot debian! rools & rox

After exiting, I found that the application was still running.... and it had 170MB of memory allocated :)

Anyway... kind of cool.. kind of impressive.. but it was sort of painfully boring for me to wait through for some reason.

the quality of the video is horrible, some asshole dropped too many frames from it before handing it to 216.
added on the 2002-03-01 02:07:12 by nosfe nosfe
Ok i love that music ... but the visuals are total shit .. I mean, ok it would be nice to see that pixelized/dithered/whatever videoclip for 15 secs in a real demo but not as the whole demo. Nothing really impressive here.

The music is the only good thing about this product. In fact it's fair to say the music is AWESOME. The gfx, however, are BORING and REPETITIVE.

Something between don and skrebbel.
Thumbs up for the artistic feel and some kool effects. I don't like the music that much, and the color scheme isn't my cup of tea either.

But I remember it turning my head back then.

Anyone have ript's port? The link above is dead now. KB's port only runs with the dgVoodoo wrapper, and then it's a flashy green color, I'm guessing that's wrong.
