Tnx for technology preview! We need this 20 years ago! Anyway this is brilliant for classic Speccy 128, all hail to Dzherzhinsk, Mother Russia !

digital beats + multicolor = rulez
rulez added on the 2010-12-28 21:57:46 by restorer restorer
similar technology for digital sound used in e-mage demos (trashe and comdommed, but without multicolor).

also this demo burn my eyes when I tried to see it without noflic, don't forget that original speccy doesn't have "noflic" button :)

Boring and too short though technically OK

I'd like a video. The demo doesn't start on realspec. Unreal speccy doesn't work for me too.

Gief video for us platform-limited people! Screenshot looks interesting.

I don't see why it wouldn't work on Spectrum 128 (and it doesn't). "mescaline synesthesia" was far more complicated and worked fine on Spectrum 128.
It's not a question of Covox/GS because this one work on Pentagon without those cards.
So - stupid lazyness of a coder.
I don't gie "thumb down" cause I wait for Spectrum 128 version.

Hmm,. the style of the logo is very very similar to this. Is the same artist involved? Or just an inspiration?
added on the 2010-12-28 22:59:54 by Optimus Optimus
Even if the ideas/effects were ripped this demo (but for me it's rather an intro) was enjoyable.

@ Optimouse : it's works with Unreal Speccy Portable

I wouldn't fix that multicolor for deadly slow spectrum 128. Probably neither will the authors.

Also they were unable to make correct basic 128k loader. Fail :-)

Fuck, just incredible, once again, wow
rulez added on the 2010-12-29 01:48:22 by Buckethead Buckethead
Oh, I see this demo is inspired by another CPC demo. Cool!

p.s. problem was with Unreal Speccy itself. The emulator didn't start. I don't know why the heck..
rulez added on the 2010-12-29 02:37:04 by Optimus Optimus
hm hm ... would be nice if there was less ripped/converted content ... and I never was a friend of the eye-cancer gallore, just to get a few more colors inside an emulator.

nice fx
rulez added on the 2010-12-29 09:05:36 by fyrex fyrex
Second hand. Design of logo from one side, effects looks like from 1998 - Emergency (Real Masters), bad use of NOFLIC option for emulator (eye ache on real machine).

Correct Youtube video:

2newart: In your video image and sound are not synchronized

2SceneViewer: Pleaze carefully read scrolling text :)


This demo is a joke for AAA party, specially with ripped idea, redrawed gfx and remixed music.

Original idea: http://pouet.net/prod.php?which=20226
Original music: http://pouet.net/prod.php?which=51962
Original logo: http://pouet.net/prod.php?which=53498

awesome! happy new year folks!

The music sounded familiar, and after a while it it me. It's an AY-cover of our More or less Zero demo on Atari STe :-) Nice one guys!

TmK^deMarche i advise you to add this info about sources of "original ideas" into YouTube description

BEST!!!!!!! rulez! I love this fx on the CPC and now I'm happy to see it on our small Speccy! Yeah.

Fixed basic loader: former loader, when running in basic128, swaps pages with no account for basic variable which stores current page. So eventually it crashes.

This is fixed (by deathsoft) version of loader:

ps: блятл, ты мудило.

Great !
I can see our demo on ZX spectrum now ;)
rulez added on the 2010-12-30 02:48:52 by Beb Beb
lvd: that's bullshit, man. mescaline synesthesia worked fine on 128K and this one can too. just don't use firts 16Kb and move everything higher. make timing and this sort of things.
or do not say it's a spectrum demo.

Funny! We have to adapt a deMarche effect on Amstrad CPC now :)

People, this is a joke demo. So don't complain. :) It's good by itself, and as a joke demo it's even better. :)
I'm waiting for 128+ version in TAP!

A great work! A good monitor considerably reduces flicking... (I am another scener who is waiting for a version for standard Spectrums!)

You seem to use some kind of multicolor mode. Here in Unreal Speccy, half of the screen is garbled and the samples sound horrid. Is it possible to see it in an emulator?

Ok, it woks in fuse.

I don't really care whether the whole thing is a ripoff, since the guys from Demarche sure had decent sense of humor and, moreover, have clearly confessed they did shamelessly rip it off.

In any case, consider this a port of DTC on C64, just done for a slightly weaker platform.

How, how, how, how, how very nice.....

repeating effects from half to end wasn´t necessary...

As far as rip goes, it's an nice and honest one.
rulez added on the 2012-06-11 18:51:34 by Dbug Dbug
People who criticize this for being "a rip" just do not understand what a technical tour de force this is. Just like "Mescaline Synesthesia" before it, this "joke" raises the bar of expectations for everyone else on the platform.

Does not run properly on my ZX+2, doesnt crash either, but makes the whole experience totally unenjoyable.
