Probably the most coherent Checkpoint demo to dayte! Good syncs with the music, no pauses for loading, wicked tune, and code that hits the pedal to the metal :).

Excellent stuff!

P.S. fave effect, the M-Demo 3 zoomer/scroller on acid :)

ay caramba! Fluent, fits like a glove to the cool 505 soundtrack.

Very good, but a warning for epileptic people would be welcome ;)

Nice but the flashing is a bit too annoying. Less would have been more I think. Still, nice demo!

Sick and slick!

Scroller madness, scroller goodness!

Damn that zoomscroller is awesome :)
Also I like 505's take on club music on the YM, very unusual sound and style.

Hmmmm....technically probably good (and almost a thump) but it is overall too monochromatic, too psychodelic, a noise screen?!?
What's up with the constant red flashing all over the demo? It's too annoying and spoils all the fun. The effects and overall presentation are good but the flashing makes me wonder whether to thumb this up or not.

good one ;)

i like the sounds from the music... sounds good...

super nice! Loved the music, 505 you are always solid with quality music!

Forgot the thumb up :)

This demo has design, has the usual kick ass code, has amazing music and even works on the falcon. The flashing light could have been omitted though. Well done.

nopes, not my cup of tea at all.
Reminds me very much of 1996-esque speccy demos from russia.

Wow! Just plain wow!
rulez added on the 2010-12-13 23:08:31 by Paranoid Paranoid
pfft - this too much design for a checkpoint demo (joke!!!!)

of course it rules hard, and its a very enjoyable watch as well

Some nice routines, but I think the flashing red color is ruining them and prevent from fully appreciating the whole demo.
Sorry I have to agree that the flashing red colour ruins the demo.
Some really amazing effects, but also i don´t like this flashing colour. And i don´t understand the noise screen... ;-)
Anyway it´s worth a big thumb up!

nice demo ruined by red flashes.

This flickering prevented me to watch the whole demo.
added on the 2010-12-14 13:01:31 by Cj Cj
About the flickering..
first the whole "demo" was thought for some visualize-effects for some party.. therefore the name. :)
Since the demo grow in size, and 505 wanted something for Sillyventure - I decided to finish it more or less ..

The flashing is still in - so the demo might not be for the weak ! AND - you aren't WEAK, aren't YOU ?! ;)

Expect an updated version soon.. maybe still this year.
I also want to do a DMA-bootdisk version of this little demo, since I LOVE DMA-bootdisk demos !!

Ace code and music as usual! Well done... But i used a red filter on my screen to avoid the flashes! ;p

Can i ask for a version without the flash ? :)
added on the 2010-12-14 22:22:34 by tobé tobé
I *think* I saw a rather nice demo between the flashing :P. No cigar for the tune this time either.

I'll never get bored of spinning 3d stuff, I've looked into having a go, but the maths is way beyond me :D

I'm a big fan of Checkpoint, all the Defjam job is really impressive. This time, I must admit that I'm disappointed... The music from 505 is quite average, the flashing border is a problem as many people notice it, and... Exocet was in holidays? :)

Ther is some great ideas, as usual. For example, the zooming words with delay is really smooth and well done. So very good code, but lack of design to my taste... but very good code, I repeat :)

I like the sync a lot, the constant flashing may have been better done like the old Haujobb & Dune releases, it's too regular for my taste.

Eat lead, drink acid, watch this!
rulez added on the 2010-12-26 15:34:21 by nerve nerve
Well, I'm gonna go against the crowd and say that the music in this release totally rules! The freshest acid sounds my STE has made since back Crazy Q was putting out stuff on his G-Spot label. The sndh of this is playing on my eeepc as I type! :D

Really enjoyed the demo too. :)

Only a few people complained (and not me, i liked it) about the music, but most people complained about the flashes... I hope final version will have a cheat code to disable them (or better, no flashes as default and a cheat code to enable them... ;).

Please, defjam, please! :)
added on the 2010-12-27 16:21:21 by baah baah
A lot of people also did not complain about the flashes. My opinion is that removing them would tarnish the awesomeness of the prod.

I hate the constant flashing but very good stuff otherwise, as usual.

If you make a final version, you could try to have them more in sync with the soundtrack or something maybe ? ;)

I like this one very much as it proves once again Defjams coding skills... the very strange outfit matches perfectly to Nils´ completely krank mukke, thumb up for the difference! Only the abrupt ending sucks a bit...

Nice dithered effect on scroll text and tunnel.
The stroboscopic effect is a bit annoying.

Can't see until the end, must wrap, sorry...
Good effects inside but flashy screen is terrible !
