My favourite 64k intro from ms02.

i really liked this one. Maybe the music could be better.

lotsa not-too-original-but-good-looking fx (my fav is the shaky disappearing text), fast, never boring, thumbed up.
rulez added on the 2002-04-02 11:26:17 by bhead bhead
This one kicked major ass. Great tune, stylish gfx and very coherent design (and the scenepoetry didn't bother me that much either:D). Nice to see spinning kids finally releasing stuff again.

this one is mature, shows great attention to details, great realization and a good rythm. my definite favourite from the compo.

The shaky text is good but the rest of the effects are boring together with boring music.

Yeah the text was really cool. The rest is so-so...not bad tho :)

The scene poetry may sound weird if you never read anything from Dick, if so this intro might help you a bit... ;D
Anyway thanks for any kind of positive/negative comments.. we luv u all !

five reasons why this intro rules so much:

- clean and good design that holds the package of art well together to the very end.
- awesome music
- short enough to be interesting
- the blurry/distorted output supports the idea very well
- well, all in all it's just a great intro, my favourite from 2002 so far...

Hmm it has some nice colors and such but, erm, I dunno it was boring. And at least I was able to watch it, hmm anyone want to put all the other prods on something that isn't ftp.scene.org, I haven't been to able to connect to scene.org since they introduced the user limit.

style is everything. you rock.
rulez added on the 2002-04-03 08:50:46 by fred fred
very nicely presented, no weakspots in design really, and everything fitted.

only comment i have is for the musician(s):
the sine sample which played the main chords/scales sounded a bit weak (read: 64k'ish) :)

other than that i agree with already posted comments. kick ass!

Stellan: I know (128 bytes, 16 bit :D), but size was somehow very critical at first. Luckily ADSR and vibrato make it a bit more bearable...

It's probably something to do with your graphic adapter... the intro runs well on my p2/450 with a geforce...

It rules, and the writer is just about the most stylish one for a few years now. Nice music, nice ideas. However, I don't think it should've won... it placed ok IMHO.

intro is really nice visually, also music is good for my ear(s) however i happen to dislike most of the lyrics in intros. man i am percieving visual emotions, no time to read any poetic texts...

I had this faint memory this reached 33% at some point :D
added on the 2002-09-13 12:48:53 by dixan dixan
True... maybe they just changed the way to evaluate the percentage, for some odd reason...
added on the 2002-09-16 22:11:29 by pan pan
the percent decreases linearly, and increases linearly, per hit, so let say a week without no hits it decreases 0.2% and per hit (that is from different hosts etc) it gets + 0.3% or such, atleast thats what ive seen :-)

rulez added on the 2002-10-25 17:19:16 by Zone (leZone) Zone (leZone)
And now it's 35%, in less than a week... stefan, explain this :)
added on the 2002-10-27 22:00:48 by dixan dixan
oh first i would like to say i dont KNOW how it works, i just assume it works like thsi.. example:

lets assume the percent is calculated like this (OUR_MAX_VALU/hits) * 100
then assume OUR_MAX_VALUE is 100 we get:
(100 / hits) * 100

so each dey or week the hits decreases with some number, let say it decreases with 1 or 2 hits per day it doesnt get loaded by an unique IP we get this for example:

week 1 we have 100 hits and it gets loaded each day, then we would reach 100% directly (100/100 = 1) * 100 = 100..
Then next week it decerases with 3 it will get 97% so if we run this on this prod we start at your question where it was at ~33 % then next week withou hits it will get 30% then if we get 3 hits the next following days it will reach 33% again.. see ? :)

WHAT numbers he uses for decreases and what range of days it covers i DONT know .. only analogue can answer that, but it makes sense, no?
added on the 2002-10-27 22:09:58 by Hatikvah Hatikvah
wooh - sounds complicated...

don´t you think it actually could be as simple as this: every hit is one point. the prod with the most points/hits since the upload equals 100% (okay - it always says 99% but that´s probably just a bug) and 35% popularity means it has 35% the amount of hits compared to tube or porrasturvat.
and probably it climbed from 30% to 35% simply because it had loads of hits during the last days...
added on the 2002-10-28 11:10:10 by fiver2^fB fiver2^fB
Yeah, this actually makes sense... furthermore, if your entry appears in the top10 or in the "latest added comments" it's more likely to be visited by those who read the first page.
This actually is the only one reason why I keep on writing bullshit here :DDDD
