Lots of excess data.
Extreme party-panic-release.
Expect a final (loopit(TM)).

After I had said "next they're going to show Buddha or something", it took no more than 5 seconds for Ganesha to appear.

It's all rather well done, though, so a piggy it is.

The time was ripe for another goa demo. Too bad about the many empty/unfinished scenes and the comic Ganesha model, which was ok, but not as good as it could have been. How about a final version?

Should've been least in the top three. Nice 2d effects. Music is not really my style but fits anyway
rulez added on the 2009-04-14 19:24:01 by noby noby
The best demo in the compo by far. Corehent style and timing + an awesome track.

6th place is just a joke imo but maybe it was due to the relative low seeding in a disappointing compo ? :/

It seems like the demos with the most highend FX got the high seeding but not the demos that actually was worth looking at.

Nice goatrance track. The elephant god scene should have lasted for much longer, and other stuff should have been done with it. The kick is dominating too much, headphone mastering?

i may have been too drunk at the party to remember this. it starts off a bit slow and then progresses to something worthable (if that is a word). then i think its not quite super good visually, it needs more power (and im setting a high demand for this when watching a psy-demo). so its _not_ going to be a rulez from me this time, but there are some good 3d-scenes in there anyway so its almost too good to be ok.

On a cosmic scale, a year and a half barely any time at all ::) On a demoscene scale, with quite a bit of advancement in visual fidelity, the look of this demo is quickly degrading. It still isn't as good as it deserves to be, but with the effort I can currently spare, it will be horribly(-er) outdated by the time it is.

The demo should now run pretty much everywhere, though it still has an issue on a few exclusive machines, stalling the visuals after 30secs.
added on the 2010-11-04 13:09:38 by hornet hornet
Mine seems to be an exclusive machine (XP SP3, Quadro FX 580). Also I have a resolution of 1280x1024 and the drawing area is not centered, but shifted to the bottom of the screen...

added on the 2010-11-04 20:38:31 by raer raer
RareWtFailWhale - thanks for testing! You're right about not handling different screenformats. I've added a check for desktop resolution, which will hopefully help.

It seems the demo will crash and burn on some win-xp - unfortunately I don't have a setup to bugfix this on, so until I do (or the platform disappears naturally :p ), enjoy the video :)

The final version is much better than the party version, and therefore at humb! (also because it's a good demo)
