If you have an Amiga with PPC then this one is simply a *must* - in my eyes it's 'The Product' for Amiga and simply rules!

Probably the best release at mekka this year ! Really great atmosphere during the compo :)

I'd sooner call it the 'Stash' for the Amiga (they have the same 2nd-part thing) but nothing can really describe just how bloody cool this intro is. Very impressive!

God dammit.

Last year they embarrassed us with Lapsuus. But we still had our 64k intros like FR-08 and Heaven7. Now they have to embarrass us in 64k. Lesson to PC guys - this is what you're capable of when you spend more than a few hours designing a demo (erm or intro).

And stil, please hook me up with a PPC emulator if you can find one.

I would be very pleased if someone can send me a CD with this intro, Little Nell/TBL and Global Trash 2 as mpg or divx video. The Castle/Loonies would be also nice ;). Downloading takes to much time with 64k and I have not the money for online time. Snail mail address via email ...

mmm i love watching a 64k intro from a 64MB avi ;)

this intro shines by its active and mesmerizing flow .. every scene stays just the right amount of time -- especially in those clicheish scenes (factory type ones at the end of part 1)

It is scene-packed and i just love that speech synth ;)

Respect and admiration are indeed due. This is the most complete and impressive 64K ever (on any platform). The scripting is awesome, the demo flows and changes styles with perfect rythm.

The speech synth is one of those "why the fuck didn't I think of that earlier" ideas.

Back to the drawing board, my idea of "amazing" has changed once again.

And by the way.

Hit me if you want, but when will someone do a PC/Windows port? Amiga/PPC is nice and well, but people without an Amiga can't even watch such demos in emulators, and DivX etc suck IMHO.

added on the 2002-04-10 13:39:54 by Hatikvah Hatikvah
plus it would take a 500mhz intel machine to have the same power as the 233mhz risc (if im not mistaken).
that's most definitely the best amiga intro i've seen this year so far. thumbs up to potion, their other prods rock aswell. (not like this one though. =)
rulez added on the 2002-04-10 17:08:22 by dalezr dalezr
Apart from the 'realistic' scenes I think this is a cool intro. However, before falling over eachother praising the speech synth I should point out that Franky and Shiva had one in of their Void 4k intros. Ah well.

A nice intro, certainly not 'the best ever' or anything though.

Why port it to PC?
It will lose all its magic then (it's impressive mainly because it's on Amiga. On a PC, the 3d would not be impressive etc).
It might not even fit in 64k then either.

I think it should be left as-is.
Although a better DivX recording is welcome ofcourse :)
added on the 2002-04-11 15:21:52 by Scali Scali
Ofcourse it wouldn't be the same, and it doesn't have to be 64k on PC. But I think it really sucks that even most people who actually DO own an Amiga can't watch this (anyone got stats how farspread PPC cards are?). And even more so considering that there are no Amiga PPC emulators yet.

Atleast I don't really know what I should think about a production I can only see once on the compo (or the coders') machine and from then on only as DivX or similar recordings.
added on the 2002-04-11 19:38:31 by ryg ryg
maybe productions like this will make amiga folks buy ppc cards :)

however.. making an emulator PPC would be like.. slow :)
make an emulator for it on the mac tho.. could be cool ;D
added on the 2002-04-11 22:34:15 by Hatikvah Hatikvah
i actually *wanted* to buy a ppc some months ago, but they aren't in production anymore and it's really very difficult to get one of those used (at least for 1200 w/060). rare stuff :)

"the product" is a dumb shit next to this one... even if it's easier to code on amiga with all the extensions, the technique is still impressive... and there's a design!!!! not a simple flybye :D
But I'm agree with the idea of PC port, even if it doesn't fit in 64K... maybe a "deluxe" PC version (higher poly 3d...)

Btw, these polish guys are amazing... respect!

of course void3 had it way before this one, only in planet potion we can actually understand what they are saying.

whereas in void3 you can only 'hear' it once you know what is being said ;)
shameless self promotion: I also had a vocoder-based speechsynth in an intro before: click here :)

But ego aside, this one is really really REALLY amazing. Definitely.

Oh my god!
This is fucking cool, everything flows very well, the factory scene that ends part 1 kicks some elitebrausch ass.. part 2 is an extravaganza of commercial 90's design but, combined with that kickass vocoder/speechsynth, a huge pleasure as well :)

So since it's already PowerPC, how about porting it to Mac OS X? I'd kill (well almost) to watch this on my Mac :)
rulez added on the 2002-04-18 20:38:46 by saffron saffron
not that it makes this less cool.. but i feel a bit twisted about the "technically stunning" thing..

note that this runs on a 233mhz ppc with a permediaII (correct me if i'm wrong.. or maybe this wasn't used). but considering the polycount i dont think an intro like this is impossible on for example a 266mhz pc.

oh excuse me :)
added on the 2002-04-18 21:53:58 by superplek superplek
Don't overestimate a PermediaII.
It's a REALLY slow card. Slower than a Voodoo 1.
And a 233 MHz PPC is not all that much when you have to do T&L and music synthesis, and all that in 64k too.

I don't think a 266 MHz PC would be able to drive the synth of fr-08 alone :) (I know it ran like crap on my PII 400 with a G450 :)
So any polycount at all would be welcome :)

I say this intro remains technically stunning until someone proves otherwise with a better intro.
added on the 2002-04-18 22:21:32 by Scali Scali
uhm. the music synth. is most likely _NOT_ realtime, so that could basicly be done on any machine (even your c64).
By the way, the DivX were recorded from the following machine:

A1200 with Blizzard PPC 603e @ 200, 68040 @ 30 (yes overclocked:-)

So it's quite a bit slower than the compo machine (A4000 with PPC 604e @233MHz and 68060 @ 50)

"Don't overestimate a PermediaII.

enough to draw a few polies (and we're talking a FEW here)

"And a 233 MHz PPC is not all that much when you have to do T&L and music synthesis, and all that in 64k too."
the whole 64k border has nothing to do with that, and the synthesis is NOT realtime.

"I don't think a 266 MHz PC would be able to drive the synth of fr-08 alone :) (I know it ran like crap on my PII 400 with a G450 :)
So any polycount at all would be welcome :) " refer to my last statement

"I say this intro remains technically stunning until someone proves otherwise with a better intro. " whatever

"By the way, the DivX were recorded from the following machine:

A1200 with Blizzard PPC 603e @ 200, 68040 @ 30 (yes overclocked:-) "

and one could see it didn't run exactly fast :)
added on the 2002-04-19 16:15:53 by superplek superplek
64k border DOES have to do with that.
They can't optimize all code for speed.
Small code is usually slow code.
If you know ASM, you know exactly what I mean.
These people crammed a LOT of stuff in 64k, so I assume they didn't have enough room to unroll and speed-optimize all their code.

And get a clue about how slow a 200 MHz 603e and a Permedia2 really is.
added on the 2002-04-19 16:43:29 by Scali Scali
i damn well know asm, and unrolling loops is the last thing you'd do to optimize the speed =) smart thinking and correct placement and usage of instructions will do. if you won't buy it from me, ask somebody like jace :)

a lot of stuff you say? come on this isn't THAT much code.

i got a clue :) now you open your eyes and see how blocky the meshes actually are :)
added on the 2002-04-19 17:15:37 by superplek superplek
Uhhh, the key to unrolling loops is that you can process multiple iterations in parallel, and pair them up nicely. Which covers your 'correct placement and usage of instructions'.
But apparently you've never coded ASM, let alone PPC ASM.
And do you remember how blocky Quake 1 was?

added on the 2002-04-19 19:18:20 by sagacity sagacity
GLQuake is about the only thing simple enough for a Permedia2 or Voodoo1 to pull off at a decent resolution/framerate.
added on the 2002-04-19 19:39:44 by Scali Scali
I don't think so. Turok/Need For Speed 2 SE come to mind.
added on the 2002-04-19 19:42:15 by sagacity sagacity
"But apparently you've never coded ASM"

you're absolutely right.

i think 7 years of experience with x86 assembly is far from enough to form a sane opinion about the subject.

and indeed
quake even ran (at a bit slow framerate) on my 486.

you're comparing cows with bulls.

melw: grayscale? :)
added on the 2002-04-19 20:40:12 by neon neon
Scale: maybe, but this framerate here can't be called decent either...

Permedia 2 is a little slower than voodoo1 in fillrate, but faster in
poly setup etc.

And in general you are not sacrificing speed for code size in a 64k,
especially not when you have lots of free space as in this one...
added on the 2002-04-19 21:23:03 by Psycho Psycho
plek: About the ASM.. You've proven that yourself, by saying that 'unrolling loops is the last thing you'd do to optimize the speed'. I don't care how long you've been coding ASM. It's about HOW you code it :)
Besides, x86 ASM is not quite the same as PPC ASM. PPC is a streamlined RISC beast. You approach it in an entirely different way.
But it goes too far to explain all that right here. If you're interested, ask me sometime. I love talking about the PPC, great CPU :)

As for the 486 statement... CPU is not exactly important. I meant the amount of polys/fillrate of the 3d card.
Quake is low-poly enough for a 486 to do the setup, I guess, so the CPU won't be the bottleneck.

As for comparing cows with bulls... Aren't you?
You may have forgotten how low-poly Voodoo 1 demos were?
I haven't, I have been playing with my PowerVR PCX2 card only a few days ago, and it was quite disastrous. We've come a long way since those early 3d cards.

Note also that it uses multitexturing (for specular highlights etc) and textures with alphachannel...
That sort of stuff eats performance aswell.

Well anyway, why bother discussing it any longer. It was the best 64k intro at MS 2k2, and for a good reason. If one person finds it low-poly count, that doesn't change anything.

maybe i could give a thumb for some techie aspect.. (beats dp08 for sure) but then again that would be unfair since ianaa and otherwise this is just some slightly above average trendcrap. hah.
and fix those goddamn normals. i hate to see that kind of highlights on flat surfaces.

quake was software scali :) and a lot more than just tnl.

but hey.. lets stop this discussion and conclude that YOU MISTER, ARE A HOMO :)

GLQuake was not software, but OpenGL hence the GL in the name.
Which incidentally has nothing to do with my sexual preference.
added on the 2002-04-20 02:10:12 by Scali Scali
you were literally referring to quake:
"Quake is low-poly enough for a 486 to do the setup, I guess, so the CPU won't be the bottleneck."

and there's homo in every single one of us!
added on the 2002-04-20 15:51:35 by superplek superplek
well, maybe permedia II is slower than voodoo1, but nobady admine, that on voodoo we've got about 150MB on pcibus and on bvisionbus we've got only 20MB.....
so we can't draw more that about 3000 polys....
rulez added on the 2002-04-20 18:31:59 by mavey mavey
I was referring to Quake, the game.
However I did also mention GLQuake once.
Besides, we were discussing 3d accelerators.
So it should be painfully obvious that I was referreing to the accelerated version, and NOT the software version.

By the way, I am speaking about the 64k intro called Planet Potion, in case that was not obvious either.

And yes, mavey makes another good point, bvisionbus is not exactly hot.
PCI is 32 bit wide @ 33 MHz by the way, so you have 133 MB/s theoretical speed.

darn i missed amiga intro compo at mekka but should leech video then hum hum...

as about assembler thingies, you can generate your unrolled loops easy once 64k file is executed just like generating objects, textures and music and speech etc.. and it can be slow like hell too if one can wait a little bit before intro really starts.. and then, the replayer should be fast ofcourse. well, everyone knows that. whatever. asm just rocks =]

I always knew Amiga was better than PC for a long time, but...
This looks like a 2001 PC demo, and it's a 2003 Amiga INTRO, for crying out loud. Even IF it's PPC...
Simply stunning! And the voice-synth is better than the one that came with the Kickstart 1.3 disk...
Major Rulez!

I've been watching the divx a lot of times, and to me that's the best 64k intro on any platform. Not only Potion manage to pack an impressive amount of stuff in the small filesize, but the intro is also very entertaining to watch (the effects are varied and never last too long) and very well designed. And the speech synthesis rules :)

Yeah. This totally rules. The first part is a bit of letdown because of long flyby, but second part rocks so much, I forgot the flyby! :D

You must be really ugly darkfuckers to force me to vote for the intro that is not a PC production.

oh my holy fucking god! that's an amazing intro! outstanding job!

Great demo. Second part is really good.
A better video wouldn't hurt though.

Good memories with this one. Starting with taking a bus from Poland to Mekka (first scene party ever -- not bad!) which circled around the country picking up all these fun/crazy Polish sceners... Rumors on the bus that Mavey had made some kind of amazing intro with a speech synth. Then seeing it on screen and, wow! After it showed, all those guys ran over to Mavey and I think Skip and more or less carried those guys out on their collective shoulders. Fucking awesome.

Big ups for the music !

wad_: I remember how the tp93 bus from Germany to Denmark almost fell down a slope. Plus I had never seen that much snow in my life before ;)

I'll admit I'm not as hyped for Planet Potion as I once was for fr-08 and fr-019, but technically it feels far superior to both; in fact it still feels on par with many present-day PC 64ks. Half a kingdom for a proper video capture! :(

What? I have missed to thumb this up.

Oh and let's reply to and 10 year old comment :) I really don't think I recorded it from the bigscreen. It really looks to be recorded of a CRT screen... I also have no memory what so ever that I recorded it but oh well :)

But yeah. Proper video

why did i forgot to thumb this up

also is the part 2 soundtrack of this demo unused (the psytrance one)
rulez added on the 2018-03-27 17:15:24 by Flashira Flashira
@FlashyYNT - no, the psytrance part was unfortunately left out (no space, no effects, no time before deadline). However, most of the sample code from it was used by Phatwoman in "Future Visions", though.

So I'm going to be the one everyone hates for thumbing this one down?

Obviously I think it's not the same platform if you swap out the platform, so of course it's unfair that this even competed with Amiga 64Ks.

Apart from that, this is the same demo style as in 1998 with the same standard drab demoish graphical style, now at twice the resolution and lower framerate.

However, the music is fine and they've fitted this in 64K, which moderates my thumb to a horizontal position and I will breathe deeply and focus on my Dantian.
