I see ZERO cubes on ATI. I'm really almost about to thumb down every prod that doesn't work on ATI. Stays a piggie, for now.

Nothing special, okish music - good enough for a piggie ("Shitload of cubes" also crashes here - nVidia GTX8800)

Simple and great. Music quality could be better. Only quality, but not concept. I think you understand.

shitloadz of kubes runs fine here, looks great - and I think the music fits the rest of the prod.

Win7 x64 - 8800GT - 0 cubes (loads forever then crashes, light version only outputs sound)
Vid : DEFINITELY enough cubes for me to thumb. Way to go !

XP and ATi 5770: not so many cubes runs fine, except a black bar at the right side (prob weird res?), shitload crashes.
I like.

one of the best 4k's I've seen. just perfect length too. not sure why it appeals to me but it does.

looks good, but I was hoping for a bit more than just a shitload of cubes :D

The shitloadz of cubes version, runs fine on my 8800GT but it shows no cubes on my 5850.

At all demo coders out there, guys can you PLEASE test your code on ATI hardware before releasing? Thank you.

video looks alright but i get an unsupported resolution on the exe
added on the 2010-05-21 10:52:12 by bfx bfx
Ok, I have added some safe versions to the zip file and it would be very interesting to hear what the error messages says (send e-mail to happy-h at hack.se or drop a msg to Happy-H on efnet if you don't want to post it here).

And don't be so surprised if it don't work on budget cards because for example; the shitloadz of kubez version tries to create a 380 MB vertex buffer (among other things). So an error message with HR=0x8876017c means you ran out of video memory.
For all 64 bit users out there. Sorry, no support for that (my assembler knowledge doesn't include coding with 64-bit support).
Users with cards with no support for multiple render targets or shader version 2.0. Go and by a new one.

Oh, and i also included a version that works on my old ATI Radeon 9800 pro :-)

Nice error message ->

Now that explains it. (:

nice video ...

reminds me of an idea i had a few years ago,
with CEBIT.mod (anyone ??) as tune ...

anyway, piggy, coz it would be awesome running on my machine ...
... but i can't watch it. :b

abductee: I forgot to call ZeroMemory() on the DEVMODE struct, so either it is that or the resolution (1280x720) that is the problem

antdude: According to the screenshot it is a 0x8876017c problem == Out of video memory

doc^21o6: Apparently D3DXCreateEffect failed and did not leave any message in the CompilationErrors buffer. I have no idea what it can be :-/

antdude: directx says it is D3DERR_OUTOFVIDEOMEMORY and it looks like it was returned from CreateVertexBuffer(). But I don't know the exact layout of the video memory, so I can't say why it is thrown.

Now that the safe versions are there I'll be happy to give a thumb. Normal versions broken, safe not many - works great; safe many - crash (out of memory) -- Works in Wine! =D
