Over 90 megs for that? You must be kidding...

Hmm well the size is really futurish :P ...

Anyway well done productions... great music by CHASER as always... but I prefer your amiga productions as they have more ... hmm let's say deepness... spirit... whatever :)

Demo felt really static, even the ending was a big image that you were moving, classic ribbons(static), low quality textures, quite empty backgrounds and huge file size. Pure poop.

Huge loading here. Couldn't get past it. Maybe it's crashing during the loading or something.

Frost: you've got my promise that our next pc demo is going to be way much smaller :)

xernobyl: What platform are you on? Could you shed some light on specs of your machine? Due to time constraints, demo is quite demanding in terms of vram requirements, so perhaps this could be the reason. try running the demo after a reboot.

Huge loading time here too (~3 minutes).
Nice 3D and music as usual. But the lowres textures were kinda annoying.

Can I have half-size, high-quality 720p, full-speed .mkv version? Thanks :)

If I compare this production to the recent ASM winners, it's medicore, but if I'll do the comparison with countless 'beginner' demos this prod really shines!

Azzaro: .mkv is just a container so hope it doesn't matter. Grab a video capture (720p) here: http://alan.umcs.lublin.pl/~kbi/!/futuricon-final-nonanaglyphic.avi

This has potential for sure : it misses the typical 2d and post process from elude / mawi. but no doubt the next one will rule

Nice small first PC prod! KBI: good job!
What Nitro said!

I have to say that I really like the music, even if i don't like the rest.

This just felt like it could have been so good, but was rushed or whatever, and the end result just doesn't have the necessary touches to make it shine. Really, really bad lo-res textures doesn't help. Chasers music lifts this from piggy territory, but I'm REALLY hoping you fulfill on the promise of ths for the next one.

not your Amiga quality, but a cool show again.

+ music
+ town model
- camera movement and colissions

Seems demo was done in hurry, you could arrange many other nice futuristic scenes using that town model scenario, please spend more time on the next demo ;o)

A plain 3ds player, huge size probably due to baked lightmaps. Ugly "focal blur". A piggy.

Poor textures, low on polygons, but it was not so bad overall due to the music and city scene.

Ossom music.
rulez added on the 2010-09-15 02:52:05 by Salinga Salinga
Overall fairly enjoyable (the city was really nice), but needs a lot of polish to fulfill its promise. Great job by Chaser on the music as usual.
added on the 2010-09-16 22:29:11 by Alpha C Alpha C
nice scenes, great music.
rulez added on the 2010-09-17 14:05:42 by phoenix phoenix
Quite nice overall. Some parts of the music reminded me of Oxygene's Contrast.

Great trax.
Some nice scenes : letters at beginning, the greetings/credits part, raylights but imo rendering of the city totally waste the demo.

Damn! This is underrated! I really enjoyed this one. Brilliant modelling and fantastic music.

Okay, hard decission.
I really like the first part, the palette is plain awesome - that red is plain awesome.
The second part does really remind me of http://pouet.net/prod.php?which=25776 - just can't help it. Overall music is awesome, but its getting worse at the end (meh!) - I do like jitter, but it does really feel pushed.

Nonetheless, a thumb up, as I'm a noob - and worship your work!

Nifty idea with the greater..

direction is pretty spot on but visuals are crude in comparison, too much lowpoly and lowrez

Good music and some nice scenes.

Resolution menu is empty. Trying to run anyway made my Win7/x64 hard reboot. Ain't cool. :-(
added on the 2010-11-10 17:29:11 by Zavie Zavie
Zavie: 64-bit win7 doesn't really matter - i'm running exactly the same platform and am not getting any problems at all. The problem you are describing may have something to do with the dummy window not being correctly created right before configuration dialog pops up. What's your config? Are you running the latest drivers?
added on the 2010-11-10 23:55:10 by kbi kbi
Really like the music and most parts of the visuals.

Made 2 Rips for this on my HD channel on Youtube, one normal and one for Anaglyph (magenta/cyan)
