What the fsck is up with this? Really great start, totally blew me away... (sure it's pop-like, but it rocks! :)

Really (really) crappy ending... I still hope someone hax0r3d the code or something... :/

I really liked a lot nosfe dancing during the first part!! :D
Keep on kickin' MFX !

second part was a disappointment. i'd like to see a proper version of that.

maybe it was peer who cracked their demo.

I loved the dead bird in the second part =) Love! =)

Not for the first part, or for the second part, but for that moment in between.

I hate to see dead birds, and I hated the first part also. it looked like copying the real demogroups.

(actually I haven't even seen this one yet, so please someone make a videoclip out of this)

I was surprised, to say the least. And i'm thankful that the MFX guys always find new way to leave an impression to the people. Keep changing as you are :)
rulez added on the 2002-04-07 21:11:57 by kb_ kb_
yes, videoclip or, preferrably, a win32 port
when uncle-x told me that this one would be a clubtrance demo i couldn't believe him until the democompo.

mfx going commercial :P
actually it was a nice surprize and it could have win easily in a smaller democompo. cool you had the guts to do a quality crap/trance demo, allmost everybody now just want to forget about that =)
yeah of course completlely clicheish in all directions, but it still allmost beats any trancedemo of the last three years.

still, respect out for trying different demostyles in all directions..

oh, please next time don't go nu-media =)

First part is rather cool (except I'm no big fan of the club music, and the cathedral/church scene badly needs lightmapping), but the second part almost manages to kill it. Still, overall it's cool when people release good Linux stuff :-)
rulez added on the 2002-07-03 22:50:42 by Sesse Sesse
yes, this was a cool demo, good one too, good linux demos rule :P the vid on the end was weird, and the demo did NOT change it res back after it ended. now im stuck in whatever res it was using (800x600?)

quite nice joke demo.

what ript said.

nice prod, win32 version would be really cool.

though some people still didnt get the point sadly enough.

Funny prod with a weird and long ending. Only downside is the mentioned video mode change bug, but it's not a big deal.
rulez added on the 2004-03-21 15:29:56 by Mirv Mirv
any chance to have a win 32 version one day
added on the 2004-03-21 16:49:27 by nytrik nytrik
somewhere around there is a mac port of this. it is somewhat buggy but close enough to the original crappiness...
added on the 2004-08-24 10:56:08 by uncle-x uncle-x
win 32 port please :)

this is good.
rulez added on the 2016-05-10 17:45:48 by Flashira Flashira
The beginning was mildly cool, midpart was garbage, but then in the end it finally got interesting!

After seeing this, I honestly don't know why Garg bothered.

After reading your comment, I honestly don't know either.
added on the 2016-05-11 12:41:48 by Gargaj Gargaj
Well, you didn't do it for me, so it's fine.
added on the 2016-05-11 12:54:06 by tomaes tomaes
Cool demo. Thank you for the port, one of the few mfx prods I'd never seen before.
rulez added on the 2016-05-11 13:16:58 by Preacher Preacher
I remember there was a Mac OS X port of this long before a Windows one. And it ran sort of fine on my iBook G4. It was one of the nicer demos for it at the time but that's not saying much.

i liked the cheesy soundtrack of part 1

second part was a real compensation for my suffering during the first one :)

Consistency is not included, but still it's nice to watch it.
