First demo work in over 13 years... Three out of the four screenshots shown are from the second part of the demo - which was not shown at Breakpoint!

do you hear that sound? and a big "blah" to the recording team for their fail.

Another unexpected comeback. ;) A certain color scheme is well used here. ;) Effect wise nothing special but still nice to watch. I didn't like the recycling of Facet's picture though, felt kinda out of place. The demo crashes here right before the 2nd part starts and I guess that's what happened on the compo machine too. So don't blame the orgas. I might do some debugging later. ;)

Oh really, thanks for this really important and not widely known info... </sarcasm>

About the Facet picture: it's kind of a joke. Facet has been a member of Desire for a long time - he was known as "Zoef". He e-mailed us some pictures we could possibly use (most of which was used before) and we decided on this one. It shows two things - Facet was a member of Desire (not widely known outside of Holland) and maybe more importantly, we're a bunch of old geeks :-)

sray: if something crashes it doesn't exactly feel appropriate to display it 'just like that' imho. and magic, please, find a dark corner and hang yourself..
added on the 2010-04-06 19:44:56 by superplek superplek
It wasn't a crash... The organizers called all people who's demos crashed.

Anyway, I've sent you an e-mail, Sting Ray... I'll send you another version in a few days, maybe you can test it for me.
added on the 2010-04-06 19:58:48 by infant infant
superplek: I agree and totally understand your point of view (was nice meeting you at BP btw =). I do however think that showing it like that was better than not showing it all even though I can understand that it must've been a disappointing experience. :/

infant: on my a4k it crashed with a guru right before the 2nd part starts. Feel free to send me an updated version, I'll happily test it for you! :) (And if it'll still crash I'll debug it ;D)

Not bad for a fun party prod. Wish you didn't name it like this, I still have fond memories of receiving the original Menace in mail.. :)
added on the 2010-04-06 20:08:32 by break break
StingRay: likewise :) Lets see what turns out and hope that more Desire prods will follow in the future.

magic: WRONG
joker picture is from batman issue #5.

Loved it, nothing special but well executed and designed which I like. The reuse of facet's joker pic was an immediate shock when I saw on bigscreen, just didnt have any value for me in the demo but nice to see anyways :) Btw, I liked the sync etc in the second part. I hope this means more from the desire crew in the future! btw.. are kernel/desire and chaos/desire still around?
rulez added on the 2010-04-07 11:23:01 by dv$ dv$
Alien: actually Hof/Silents made a joker picture to back than. I remember there was some quarrel about it that Hof and Facet both made a joke picture. Cant remember exactly in detail though.

Devistator: No idea if they're still around. The Dutch core is, and Twilight from the UK is, but I don't know about the others :)

Nice to see you guys back on the Amiga. I mailtraded with one of your swappers back in the days. Good work and hope to see more of you in the near future!

crash before the second part for me too. A1200 + 030.
I hope fixed version will come soon:)
Demo is quite enjoying.
rulez added on the 2010-04-08 11:44:21 by dimouse dimouse
@dimouse: I'm quite surprised. I tested in on two A1200's without issue.

It seems related to the memory management. I should be able to fix that within the next week orso. Expect a final version soon.
added on the 2010-04-08 13:32:23 by infant infant
Btw Infant, if you sent me a mail it never arrived. Use myhandle_dsd(at)gmx.de and it'll reach me. :)
added on the 2010-04-08 13:35:34 by StingRay StingRay
@StingRay: OK. I sent it to some @scarab address I believe. Thanks!

Piggy. The second part was better than the first.

Infant: thank you for the fun and inspiration. (And you know what it inspired... For other people: stay tuned! we will rock your socks off - soon.)

Nice =)

Sadly, the second part wasn't shown. It's way better than the first one. Piggy for the first part, thumb up for the second. I like the modern style in that one more.
rulez added on the 2010-04-09 23:13:33 by Bobic Bobic
I mostly liked the GFX in second part.

Pitty it was not show at BreakPoint, but I guess it has inspired a mid life crisis for many of the 'old' Desire gang...

A surprising comeback on the Amiga from Desire. The second part has more edge than the first part, but things look very promising. Thumbs up for making another Amiga demo from the Netherlands - it has been a while!

Some nice recycled/old gfx in first part. Crashes here on my 060 too before the 2nd part.

For those that mention the second part crashes - I'm working on a fix and it is being tested right now.

I'm trying, I'm trying... And StingRay is helping - but being in a place without proper internet access and no real Amiga hardware does not make it easier! :)

Great to have you back. When will Facet's Pussy re-open? (That sounds a bit strange I must say :))

Chromag =) The next release is at Outline 2010 if that's what you're trying to say! Are you still doing 4 channel mods by chance ?

Good, but need to be worked out. And "In Monaco", what is obvious seeing the date, is much better!
