Welcome Stardreamers! Nice gfx and ok'ish music, but Sherlock Holmes is still searching for some more effects :-)

Good effort!

Heh yeah, this is our first Win32 demo, and if we get enough good votes on this, we might continue to create even better demos.

Scouts honor.
Darn, didn't run under wine.

It didn't? So sorry.
Don't be sorry, that's usual. I just thought it would be interesting to see this one!

Crediting the author (Floppi afaik) of this old chiptune you picked (with his authorization I suppose) was too hard it seems...
added on the 2009-02-22 01:30:40 by keops keops
Well, we pretty much realized that once the demo was uploaded. Ill try to change that.
good enough, but just because of the ripped music I guess.

sometimes i just have a feeling that someone kidnapped your hamster and told you that if you won't release 100 prods before BP, they will force him to watch BITS prods 'till the end of time.
added on the 2009-02-22 01:47:37 by unic0rn unic0rn
Your right, maybe I should wait a bit until I release something next time ;) heh
do not wait. start working on it yesterday. but TAKE YOUR TIME. good prods are not coded in 2 days, really.

Newcomer/effort thumb.

Thanks, you guys are so nice.
we are not, and here's the proof:

1. ripped music
2. made using demotool
3. not listening to any advices given to you in comments for your 2 previous releases.

seriously, where are the other members of your group? listen to the people and don't try to impress with something that doesn't even exist. you've created a thread that your group is releasing a demo and needs a chiptune, then after 2(!) days you've said it's already done, and released it, with ripped tune of course. and overall created with demotool and not a single line of code.

sure, it is a way. but you won't get far with it. listen to some good advices, and LEARN. with small steps, but learn.

lol unic0rn. Don't be harsh :)
rulez added on the 2009-02-22 02:18:46 by ~ STARDREAMERS ~ ~ STARDREAMERS ~
and one more thing, one man productions are perfectly ok. you don't need to have whole team with every possible specialization. for example, asm force has only 2 members, and no musician as well (unless you'll count my one midi-tune as music).

and finally, selfvoting SUCKS BADLY.

it really does. :)
added on the 2009-02-22 02:19:42 by unic0rn unic0rn
self voting sucks, jsyk
added on the 2009-02-22 02:19:57 by zefyros zefyros
Oops, did I selfvote? My bad. ;)
Wouldn't consider thumbing your own prod on pouet a self vote. We're not actually voting for the prod to become winner of anything. I'm perfectly fine with people thinking their own stuff is worth a thumb up...

However the demo crashed my macbook running xp, so no thumb for you just yet.
no attitude if you can't back it up plz...

++ newcomers
+ one nice piece of gfx
= demotool
- ripped music
- direction
- reuse of that wierd 'scroll with a sinus'-thing on screen-filling background textures
added on the 2009-02-22 03:32:57 by numtek numtek
what numtek said :).

Nice gfx, and not boring (the "design" is rather good), but small content and rely too much on the (uncredited !!) chiptune.
added on the 2009-02-22 04:24:02 by wullon wullon
music nice
- selfvoting
- ripped tune
- the only fx is a blurred cube? wtf?
- talking about coding when there is no code involved
- selfvoting.

keops > i thumbed it down for you
Tune is nice but it's ripped, thumb down for the lack of effort, no credit for the song, and the demo really sucks.

And what Havok said.

Basically its just because I want it in a form of .exe that I used SGZ. Others than that, plenty of the work is in 3ds max.
this sucks badly

_wheely_ too bad that I your not good enough to make any demos yourself, because I would like to thumb it myself. :)
Plenty of work in 3DS Max? wtf?

The only nice thing was the tune and even that was ripped...

99,99% of the demos run on it, so i like to blame the demo and canada!

Maali, your computer obviously has good taste, I wish mine had rejected this...

Sadly I had to sit through it, luckily it dion't last long.
added on the 2009-02-22 14:54:14 by Shockwave Shockwave
Well, don't bother, then. I know, this demo sucked, but we have our hands full on another
bigger project. This includes more effects, more like a storyline. And this new one is going to be a bit longer. I hope this one makes success.
What they said.

those screen bounces were really sloppy
only 1 real effect but i liked the gfx :)
added on the 2009-02-22 16:03:07 by keito keito
next time dont rip the music, do some real 3d work and code some effects and the thumb will eventually go up.
sucks added on the 2009-02-22 18:02:23 by v3nom v3nom
No effects there. Simple screen, nicely done. Not bad for first try.
added on the 2009-02-22 18:12:39 by Optimus Optimus
i've spent time
4- deleting your stuff and i'm kinda disapointed

if i make something who sucks badly as i said before and people said that it sucks it will be ok for me .

don't take it too personal
next one will be better i 'm sure .....
wtf i hope so :)

Thats like if I go to a random prod, thumb it down
and I write in the comments: "Baijuan!"

What's the point?
Come with a reasonable explenation please.
thumb down on this prod should need no further explanation.
added on the 2009-02-22 21:26:04 by wurxmitz wurxmitz
Your right, Im gonna make thumbdown on random prods from now on. :) Fair enough.
He has probably watched it...
Why are you so touchy? Just do a better demo next time and people will thumb it up...
added on the 2009-02-22 22:11:37 by raer raer
yes. I blame canada!
sucks added on the 2009-02-22 22:39:24 by flickey flickey
Yeah, all my 3 prods has the majority of thumb downs. Thats a really good sign right there.
sucks added on the 2009-02-23 01:12:08 by T$ T$
what T$ said.
again: take your time and twiddle around with werkkzeug or even learn c++ ...if you want to release sth fast werkkzeug isn´t really THAT hard to learn to get sth better out of it than this.
sucks added on the 2009-02-23 02:41:40 by ɧ4ɾɗվ./Lemon. ɧ4ɾɗվ./Lemon.
forget about demotools for the moment. learn some basic C/C++. the graphics are quite ok. lacks fx, though. and you should have given credit for the tune.


if we get enough good votes on this, we might continue to create even better demos.

what ? you are just in'nit for the glÖps ? :-)

added on the 2009-02-23 02:46:03 by xyz xyz
Considering what you can do with SGZ without writing a single line of code... that's poor.

As Hermes said, do learn to code that's faaaaaar more enjoyable and people will thumb you up !
Or take the time to really make a good SGZ demo....

Make your choice !

What everyone else said.
sucks added on the 2009-02-23 10:36:09 by wb wb
Im making a new demo called Orcus though, and it will be 100% 3D animation. Or at least 95%. This is going to be more like a storyline though, combined with some neat graphics. Also, we have a tracker in our little team now to track our music. So no nagging about stealing work! :)

Hope that one will be better though.
Hope you're not referring to me, cause I'm not in your team...
skope/stardreamers does sound somewhat sexy tho :)
added on the 2009-02-23 17:53:13 by havoc havoc
lol in your dreams punk!
No, of course not. I mean my friend Raddox
Hey, good effort. I agree to some of the criticism above, but at least you tried. Plus some of the artwork looked cool IMHO.
rulez added on the 2009-02-23 22:43:09 by cxnull cxnull
Thanks. :)
Ive started to work on a demoeditor for my own now. If it will be good, then i might release it here on pouet. But the other demo Orcus, which I have in mind, will take it's time. I got a very small time to do stuff, and when I do it, I will spend it on the demotool or the Orcus demo. :)
assuming that you really want your demoeditor to be somewhat good, i expect your next release in 1-2 years. just finish it before 2012.
added on the 2009-02-26 19:53:26 by unic0rn unic0rn
Basically got some small functions done, and no, I maybe wont put it up here just yet on a second thought. But I might use it to make some of my own demos though. And if I will release it publically, I can tell you that it will be somewhere around 2012. ;)

By the way, what is in 2012? Doomsday? Sounds fun.
nice 2D artwork
