Cool! I'll test it on 060/50 (I saw it on emulator) in a few hours.

Not my cup of tea either. But the effects rock, especially the clouds at the start.. I thought they were some kind of volumetric cloud effects at first. Stunning stuff.

way too good for Amiga!
didnt work under WinUAE btw ( assigned all the RAM possible, but after the intro-screen ( We are Spaceballs! you are not! ) it went and stood black! )
MOAR! use tEiS as a musician next time!

Shoonay: Thanks for the youtube vids!

If anyone has the chance to capture this from a real amiga as well (060/50mhz or preferrably 66mhz) it would be great! Our vhs-cams are unfortunately all being serviced atm..

This final version is quite close to what was shown in the compo at Datastorm. Some tweaks have been done to the effects in the top-left and bottom-right parts of the screenshot, and several ugly glitches between parts have been removed together with some other bugs.

Cool. Lacks some important details in the presentation and design imo. The static dithering in the displacementmap in the cloud scene is a shame - you could at least have animated it :)
Otherwise fresh demo!

Maytz: I don't know how you newschool PC kids do things but I can guarantee that there's no displacement maps in the cloud part. :)
However, there is a static color overlay (2 bitplanes) which is indeed a bit too visible / creates aliasing. I did consider animating it or toning down the color gradient to make it less visible (like in some of the other parts of the demo), but never got around to it.
Annoyingly these overlays also seem to create visible banding on *some* displays and projectors (most visible in the cloud and meta-grid-thingie parts), which I'll need to look into if I ever reuse this technique. For now you'll just have to pretend this is how things work on Amiga ;)
nice demo!
rulez added on the 2011-02-11 13:45:27 by endo endo
@Korvkiosken: well, newschool pc kid - dunno about that - been on the amiga platform since 1989 :) - but using af lookup table (displacementmap) could easily have been used for colors and position.

Maybe doing the dithering inlined in the c2p, as Blueberry explain here could be a way to it?

Still cool demo :)
added on the 2011-02-11 14:07:57 by maytz maytz
Maytz: It's a *static overlay* that never even exists in the chunky buffer, so there's no need whatsoever for baking it into the c2p since it already comes for free. :)

As for the displacement maps; I dare you to do a similar effect using the techniques you mentioned. ;)

Anyway, I'm turning into one of those 'tards who turn prod comments into forum threads.. :(
Korvkiosken: haha, I would never take up that challenge, since I'm growing old and lazy - very lazy, actually so lazy the everything beoynd MSVC take up to much of my time :)

added on the 2011-02-15 17:30:49 by AzzaroMWI AzzaroMWI
"silly 4k intro on pc" -- well.. odd comparison. i do agree that it's a bit low on grapical content but it looks intentional (focus on effects, not on overlays) and stuff moves around nicely

that said, in terms of "type of demo" it's not comparable to the 2nd ranking demo

basically what spike said about design !equals overlays :)

Have you seen Mwi demos? They're among the best designed demos on the Amiga!

Obviously, you work to your strengths. The coder here is clearly not a designer, but has made some great effects. The upshot is that it will impress a lot of coders, the downside is that it doesn't appeal as much to the designers/artists.

just because it has a black backround doesn't make it a badly designed demo.

Fucking great. Sorry for using the F-word but hey, this is brutally nice. On the other hand, I've been having a few beers and maybe I'm not that well-balanced but who cares? Now I'm off to sleep.

The cloud part is extremely impressive. Original music too.

Demo without any significant theme but with really nice effects.

One of my favorite Spaceballs demos. Delicious soundtrack and ossom effects.

absolutely hilarious.. and the soundtrack with Mongolian through singing.. especially after quite recent discovery of the Hu band.. I simply love it.

what can I say? few animations played back, mp3 played back, zero coding... and what I used to value demos for? the coding! mainly coding. music, grafix, design also, but not other way. any other way of "making demo done" than writing, is barbarianism and has nothing to do with heritage of civilisation, culture and science of Europe. soon we gonna get soapbulbs generated by curving the time-space, or same as usual, single slice of chewing gum produced at expense of blowing up the whole universe. back to school dudes!

Naaay... clearly this "demo" - mongolian singing played back of an audio track (not a module), clouds and flying cubes played back of animation, not a computed in real time. (Amiga can not calculate this many operations per second and everything is strongly limited, so... clouds? beaucoup of transparency cubes? really?)

that's what I am talking about. it's not a coding it's renders being played back. just a set of players, no intelectual riddles at all...

since coding is most important in demo art - there my negative vote goes.

no coding here - you can play animations back in Amos. this demo (and plenty of other ones like this one) shouldn't be presented in demo category, but weird or anim instead.

seriously! back to coding guys!

Yes, we used a streamed soundtrack (not mp3, but close enough for this conversation) in this demo. I'm not sure what this would have to do with anything other than your fetishization of mods.
As for the coding aspect of the soundtrack: I didn't code the streaming music player used here, nor would I have coded a mod player if we had used a module. :)

Just because you don't understand something it doesn't mean that it's an animation. :)

The "clouds" are made from several (I think it was six) layers of blended grid expanders / grid interpolators (the thing that most of those late-90's tunnels were done with).
The hard part here (for me, at least) was finding a texture that worked well, parametrizing the movement & distortion so that it looked "like smoke", and then making it all run fast enough.
Part of that last bit was rendering the 6 layers at lower resolution and then doing some upscaling tricks to make it look slightly better than plain nearest-neighbour 2x2.

I'm assuming the "flying cubes" you mention is the next part (the one after "we are spaceballs..."). This is an old trick, used in tons of late-90s PC demos and a few Amiga demos from the same era.
Simply render some 3d objects to a few offscreen buffers and then use those buffers to draw scaled 2D "software sprites / point sprites / billboards / <find your own terminology>".

"Back to school", indeed.

I was about to say that this is one of the better Amiga 060 demos from recent years until I realized it’s >11 years old. Ouch. Still feels fresh though.

I hope this is an idea for some killer demo. That promised demo for Revision 2023 mentioned in other Laffik's comments. Good luck with that.

Good! Demo is already ready and buzzing! And believe me, even on superfast emulation on PC "simple" phong routine is barely doing 25 FPS. That gives, or rather proves what I had already - the sense of Amiga capabilities. This sense honks that I am cheated with "Norwegian Kindnes" and whatever it is, it's not a realtime.

Even according to official Amiga Source Development Kit and all hardware guides, there's no hardware implementation of grid expanders/grid interpolators, so It would have been coded and performed by processor on Chip memory and planar playfields - no god damn way it can be done without prerenders.

Sure I don't know everything and if you really made it you can take my rant as a huuuge compliment. That would be told if I believed in what I see.

Maliciously, Revision 2023 will be organized in Germany and so far I haven't heard anything about possibility of contributing remote entries. Is it because some folks want to mute my handmade coding? Or even to pull me into Germany zone, where still some risk of physical confrontation residues... aaaay!?

I come out of comment hiatus to agree with break and kb. The Dunning-Krueger is strong here.

effect of Hurvitz-Cramer-Bonk-Banks says that number of pixels drawn in a second is limited. strongly limited. so limited that none of you know how limited it is. or assumes that noone else knows.
