Damn, my Geforce 2mx card probably dont support render to texture. I just see the first part, but then it gets all white.

Wain: It's because you have the latest nvidia drivers, we have some problems with they. We are fixing.

trace: Ok, I should have read the nfo file.

Good luck with fixing it.

- Last NVIDIA drivers. (www.nvidia.com)
I see all white, but the blured 3D scene at the party looked cool

Ok, here's the story.

Prod was working in all our compies. I checked the very latest nVidia drivers just a couple of hours before the deadline, and i got this white shit. Investigated it, the trick for generating blur is broken with these drivers. If you check nature 2.0 you will see blurs will also fail (at least they do with my machine). I have confirmation that this is a driver bug. I'll work on a workaround for this problem.

With the drivers that ship with windows xp (or not the very last with nvidia), the prod works in GF2 Go and GF3. Don't mess with the drivers, wait for the fix (the prod isnt that good anyways).

Hmmm, sorry about all this mess, havent been very lucky wuth my 2 latest releases!!!

I didn't like the prod, sorry guys. I know, I hacked my way into the script in order to disable the blur, so I'm not thumbing it down based on an incomplete version.

sure it's not the best prod ever, but the screenshot here doesn't make it any justice, methinks.

I liked this demo, although when I watched it for the first time, I was pseudo-sleeping in a chair in front of the videowall!

Quite different demo compared to the other Threepixels stuff, but nice. No problem here with detonator v22.80 on my tnt2

It is a nice concept, but without any substantial content.
doesn't seem to work on geforce4mx with the latest drivers. i get a warning that my card doesn't seem to support renderontexture or something.. but it should, if it works on a tnt2 it should also work here i think..

I found it very good....
I feel identified with the character. Mornings sucks, and more when you don't find your glasses ^^
