great music, styleish overlays and bad character models. still, cool enough

can't make this baby work ++ crashes while at the loading screen (p2.300.256M/win98se/ge2mx400/28.32)
added on the 2002-04-01 22:43:05 by _-_-__ _-_-__
after aprox. 5 minutes loading (not joking) it started on my machine!!! (no, didn't load it from tape)
the artwork is quite stylish and i would vote it 'rulez' if it would not look like a slideshow on my athlon 500 /192MB / ATI radeon. too bad, but 0.5 fps are not enough!
added on the 2002-04-01 23:11:22 by cer cer
it does rule. definitely it deserved a MUCH higher ranking. the demo combines high-level concept with stunning techniques.
last but not least the guy who added it fucked it up: it is not just a bypass production, but a colloboration of BYPASS, KOLOR and BLACK MAIDEN!
rulez added on the 2002-04-01 23:50:39 by dipswitch dipswitch
thats why its a preview (extreme party version) - but it should most definately run faster - runs very smooth on my celeron 500/ 256 ram / geforce4mx - but the loading time is truely very boring
added on the 2002-04-01 23:51:09 by gekko gekko
really nice! its a shame that the code bugs a bit...
rulez added on the 2002-04-01 23:53:04 by cp_ cp_
dipswitch : yep fucked that up - is there any way to change it?
added on the 2002-04-01 23:54:13 by gekko gekko
Really nice(!!) - too bad it was choppy on the big-screen (itsa windows... boot it... often).

I guess it would have been ok for the characters to have a -bit- more detail ;)

Runs perfectly on p3-800, gf2u, 1G ram.
rulez added on the 2002-04-02 01:55:30 by hornet hornet
Okay, what's up with the framerate on this thing? All I saw was a slideshow with a shitload of diskswapping. *Waaaaaay* less than 1 fps with a five minute plus start-up time. (No unnecessary programs running in the background.)

I guess 256 megs of RAM just doesn't cut it these days...
sucks added on the 2002-04-02 03:36:51 by sea_monkey sea_monkey
jeez, the bitch sucks up memory like there's no tomorrow. 256mb RAM here as well.

the preload takes ages as well.

This one took 1 min to load on my P4 1.5.

Kinda scary demo, someone is puking in this demo :) I kinda liked the lines or what I shall call these things you see in the screenshot.

Nice 3d

excellent ideas, realisation is not bad too =)
rulez added on the 2002-04-02 15:34:31 by stil stil
Great stuff. I like the design, I like the sound, I like the style. As dipsqitch mentioned someone should change bypass to bypasskolorblackmaiden.

Waiting for the final version... perhaps then I'll get the connection between the cinema and the main part ;)
rulez added on the 2002-04-02 18:14:23 by avatar avatar
pIII-600/gf3/512ram/maxtor hdd - loads in about a minute, works like a charm (except quite a few graphical bugs, but I guess that's just a partyversion thang), dunno why all this whining.. 8}
the 3d on itself is kinda dull-ish, until those badass red things kick in - bringing back some memories of 'anamorphs' (short video by design outlet wddg.com) and that 'body snatchers' movie. music definitely could use some shortening, but it's weirdness to boot and that how I like it.
rulez added on the 2002-04-02 19:39:10 by bhead bhead
i couldn't really watch this either. heavy loading every time the scene changes. i guess my 256MB isn't quite enough. what i saw was nice though.
added on the 2002-04-03 08:32:23 by raymon raymon
heavy loading indeed...
it also crawls at times, has bugs in it and crashed after the last scene...BUT...
it has potential 'cause the concept is quite cool and the dnb track was good (bass synth sounded a bit like the one in Krust's Warhead)
maybe the final looks / works better.

After watching this demo, memory usage drops to 300megs. It peaked at 910megs! :-/ I mean... wtf!? :-) The music is nice, the rest is rather strange. I didn't quite get it.

although those 3 great groups can do alot better and the red strings seemed a bit too abstract for me, I give it a thumb up, as the athmosphere is nice and they did it in quite a short time.

no boring wobbly envmapped things.

(na endlich mal ein demo wo ein roter faden durchführt :)

i love the noize gfx-style - it's really unique. and especially here... aggresive and weird. unfortunately it's "ruckling&zuckling".

No matter how cool i find this demo, i still can't take credits for doing it. I was only present when they did all the awesome work. So thumbs up to warp and supah for neato code :-)

Imo this one of the most overrated demos this year. It's boring, it has ugly meshes (i always wanted to say that ;) and it doesn't work on my machine at home. So it sucks

music is good, but otherwise this is boring as hell.

unstable program, but I liked it when I got it to work. Nice overbearing atmosphere, those orange lines are a neat idea

I like it, perhaps some 'code' issues.. perhaps some 'gfx' issues... but it has a really nice 'concept' and that... x')

unconsistant design, few interesting objects/scenes
good idea bad realized
bad and boring music, code didnt regive me my standard screen mode at end
and please kill this ugly red front layer wich kills the demo
see it 1 time, thats all
cel.600mhz/gef2ti/256Mb = slideshow after approximately 5 minutes of loading.
why is it in 800x600 then ?
ugly characters, cheap scenes : what did you need to load for so much time ?
and the music... repeating pattern 12 for about 79 times, hu ?

It was too slow and heavy loading, but ruled a bit because it was too scary..

yea yea yea!!!!!!!
but i have to admit this demo is like dune (the book), i mean, WHAT IS HAPPENING GOD DAMN IT???

I really love this demo; it has such great style. It's a bit sluggish and unstable on my system though.

The soundtrack was ok but the rest just sucked.
sucks added on the 2003-04-08 19:07:20 by noid noid
Eats some serious ram. But I guess it needs a fair bit for all those textures... Plus loading time was long.

Still, nice ideas, good tune, and some excellent scenery (character models/animation sucked a little, but not too bad, also it looks like there is some compression wobble on the models animation)

Still manages a rules.

Great music,steppy shit with dark feeling and drone attitude.proper dnb.

As for the choreography and the visuals,nothing really special.It has a generally weird/out of this world feeling and the scenes with the man floating in the air and the woman staring at the screen while the freaked out converastion takes place simply OWN!
rulez added on the 2004-08-16 12:22:43 by mulambo mulambo
very cool style. music rocks. models could be better. but still lots of style!
rulez added on the 2004-08-16 12:32:16 by trigger trigger
nice stuff, some of the models are a bit under the overall quality.
added on the 2004-08-16 12:47:10 by bzz bzz
How could I've forgotten that?! Simply rox! The thin red lines, the strange attitude, the nice modeling (the bathroom part..). I love the character expressions too : sometimes frightened, sometimes disgusted, but in the end resigned. Perhaps are they afraid of their one's shadow? Anyway big thumb for the whole idea and this beautifull tune.
rulez added on the 2004-08-16 13:54:01 by daddyvx daddyvx
Simply roxx, nice psycho horror scenes with abstract red lines, and music with shivering samples. good atmosphere, underrated...

There are some bugs, do the final pls
