I am not sure whether I should upload this here or not yet, but there are other TMDC demos already and I just want to get it off my hands. It might also break the compo rules by refusing to work on some computers, probably due to the ancient version of a crappy engine used. I don't have the time to work in it anymore though, so here it is.

what optimus said
Don't have the nice usual Traction style :-(

Liked the aggressive soundtrack. Visuals had some glitchy moments I liked but overall the tunnel stuff and other demo effects sort of ruined it for me.

Black screen after the intro so I'll have to wait for a video.

The black screen bug is mysterious. Never experienced it and haven't been able to reproduce it at all, so someone suffering from this, please help me out a bit :) Does the screen stay black if you fast forward it rewind it with arrow keys? Is there *anything* on the screen? Is it only certain scenes or the complete demo after the intro?

Does the screen stay black if you fast forward it rewind it with arrow keys? Is there *anything* on the screen? Is it only certain scenes or the complete demo after the intro?

Black screen starts when the timer reaches ~49000. When the timer reaches ~100000 the black screen disappears, i.e. demo continues normally. Next black screen from ~243000 - ~297000. Hope that helps. :)

For me when the screen stays totaly black i switch to windowed mode (the demo "restart") then switch again to fullscreen.
It happens at credits part, and again when colored characters appear.
Have tried to reproduce the bug without success... ;-)

Nice industrial TMD. A bit long though.

I had black screen too, from the same ~49000 to ~100000, but then (or is it intended?) the appearing pic freezes until about 125000. Next black screen also from ~243000 to ~302000. There was some other long glitchy moment too with freezing black/red screen.

okish, seems to have timing and/or speed issues
added on the 2010-12-17 02:55:38 by T$ T$
fixed version.

Big thanks to Rale for debugging and fixing it.
added on the 2010-12-19 11:55:57 by Preacher Preacher
Yeah, works now! Not the "usual" TRCT stuff but interesting, could be even more brutal, though.

I want the skull to fly back full screen after the final credits appear, that would have been awesome. ;-)

I would love to see one of your demos stepping away from LibCaca as I never considered it very good (too much HSV/HSL in it, not good perceptually). Still, the demo is excellent! Definitely one of my favorites.
