i have no idea, if the compo has happened yet, or if it got shown at all, also no idea what name this prod got in the end, so i just added it blindly...
...docd/trsi will fix the name and the .nfo soonish, screenshot is open to whoever wants to do one ;)

have fun watching this 5kb-intro ;) (music got a bit big and its a fastprod, so we opte for 8k ;) )
almost forgot about one thing:
if you are on a DualMonitor-Setup, please set your primaryMonitor to 720p (1280*720) and start the intro, it will provide visuals this way.(which it most of the times wont when trying to start from other resolutions, will fix that again in a FINAL-Release following next weekend!)
More a 6kb intro.

Sad it's not a 4k.
Aspect ratio looks screwed up here. Horribly slow on 580. Nice transparency fake.
rulez added on the 2012-10-07 01:19:11 by las las
its more like 4.9kb...i just had no time to obfuskate some of the parts i implemented last anymore ;) while i have no idea what the amount of greetings-texts added...lets see what the FINAL will have in filesize, as said, next weekend! ;)
transpareny-fake? i have no idea what you are talking about, i guess you are talking of the mirrored geometry which looks like transparency due to moduloed_geometry...if you look in a mirror and have the same behind you as you have in front of you, this looks almost as if you´d still look in front of you, yes! ;)
The illusion works pretty well if you don't show it too long :)
added on the 2012-10-07 01:33:56 by las las
what illusion? please watch again, mate!
theres no transparency involved, except for the text-overlays!
could you please try to describe, where, which part?
you are the master of disassembling shader-code, so please have a look already, parts1-4 were meant to stay in 4k-limit...then i implemented the final-music and we´ve been way above 4k...so we decided to not destroy the music in any way, going 64k(knowing never being able to exceed 8k)...i then implemented a 5th part, which aint obfuscated, you´ll see once disassembled...i didnt care about filesize anymore from this point (also knowing the deadline was close already!) and added stuff! (i would have kept adding more and more if the deadline wouldnt have come that early, while i have been fastly coding already, ask virgill ;) )
you are the master of disassembling shader-code

Already had a look at your shaders. Pretty lazy crunching work ;)

Also minor fuckings for not listening to all the guys (including me) telling you that a 101 tap blur kernel is not a very wise decision regarding performance.

theres no transparency involved

The reflections in the first scene and the red grid scene create a nice illusion. That was what I was talking about - does not matter whether intended or not - worked for me.

Please improve the performance. I would appreciate a (much) faster version.
added on the 2012-10-07 02:13:40 by las las
Nice things, especially that shading las also mentions. And go break that 4k limit, when it's not a 4k compo anyway - 4ks are stuck.
It's all running just fine here btw (7870).
rulez added on the 2012-10-07 02:22:56 by Psycho Psycho
yep, ok, now i got you (no idea what your definition of transparency is though!)

the grid-scene (with hexagonal cylindricals) has blended geometry, its hardly visible in the rush its shown and the way i implemented it ;) but its there, rewatch and see the geometry melt into each other (its the 3 flying objects, sphere and torus and octahedron, versus the hexagon-grid...i tried to blend the 3 objects aswell, but became a mess on first try, aswell as on 5th try...so i ditched it for obvious reasons...le deadline! ...FINAL maybe!)
very cool! bin gespannt auf die gettubte version bei mir läuft das teilweise mit 0.01 fps oder so :)! Quite nice music and some(ahem many!!) pretty scenes..
rulez added on the 2012-10-07 03:49:12 by mad mad
Looks and sounds nice, but runs quite slow here too. Also, Hardy, fix that fucking aspect ratio - it's an issue with all your intros :)

Nice music here, but visuals are just blackness (Win7 64, GTX450). 5824 is definitely not "4.9kb" dude but for combined compo who cares? \o/ Will await a final version I can watch.
added on the 2012-10-07 14:04:45 by Fell Fell
Fell: set your primaryScreen-Resolution to 720p (1280*720) and try again ;) i am sorry, FINAL with ResolutionRequester,etc, will follow next weekend again!

4.9kb is the estimated size once i obfuskated it all ;) actually its 5.7kb or sth, i dont care, its a fastmade partyVersion, deadline approached faster than thought once again ;)
coool ok I'll try again mate!
added on the 2012-10-07 14:16:28 by Fell Fell
if i have browser(firefox here) running in the background, it is eating up more than half of the framerate, due to JAVA (most likely only happens if sth JAVA-dependant is running in your browser, like youtube ;) JAVA7.0 sucks!)
...so close your browser, set 720p for primaryMonitor, start, have fun!
yay, worked :D and thumb goes up
rulez added on the 2012-10-07 14:40:09 by Fell Fell
hardy: I can assure you - it's you who screwed up the performance. No java installed here, no browser running while the intro was.

it is eating up more than half of the framerate, due to JAVA

What kind of "professional certificate" would you need to trust somebody telling you that you are talking bullshit on that matter here? You are just joking/trolling, ain't you?

skarab: 2spf = 2 screens poer frame? how do you define any screen?

las: come here, see the intro running at 20fps, then see me turning off the browser and see it running at 60+fps! (i guess i got hacked then via browser/java ;) )
i am not talking bullshit ofcoz due to going thru that matter for months already! (since having installed java7.0 that is!)

stop your bad attitude against me already, m8! :p

crash: wait for FINAL! (or turn your primaryGraphicsAdapter==Monitor0 to 1280*720-Resolution, then start it!)
video: see above: hoping for ANNIkras to cover that up!
screenshot: it´s still open to everyone to just add one!
go for teh glöp!
idiot! you should have had a go for screenshot! :p
adding some black screen because it won't run ain't that nice :D
but screenshots earn you glöps!
(read again all of the above and figure how to get rid of blackScreen :p )
hArDy: 2 seconds per frame, but my geforce is "pretty old and cheap". nice work anyway!
added on the 2012-10-07 15:45:23 by skarab skarab
2spf? that sucks a lotto! ;) i just hope anni awakens soonish so he provides us with 1000/60 per frame ;)
hArDy: it runs but maybe 1 frame per 20 sec so ... that does not count as running ^^ and it kills my pc after esc (desktop ... black screen ... desktop ... black screen) so i'm waiting for anni to help too ^^
get some cheap graphics-card at ~50€ already ;)

Got as far as the greeting before I hit ESC. Very slow, repetitive, so utterly "done before", and perhaps the slowest code (for what's on the screen) in years. Also, the aspect error is just terrible.

Great intro and music, but very bad performancewise hardy. No other running programs, HD 5850 here, some scenes had roughly 15-30FPS due to vsync. Stop being so stubborn and fix that blur of yours that's eating 25% of your entire intro rendering time.

Neat shader porn collection. I really like the 3d grid scene. But why are there still blatant camera-clipping-though-geometry scenes in 2012? :)

Reaaally nice tune! Effects were good. Would make a great 4k...

tomaes: i hate the geometry-collisions, but all of this was made really last minute, we had to rush a lot and i tried about 20 different settings, none of them did not collide,then the deadline appeared ;) wait for Final plz! will fix that!
maybe not perfect but very enjoyable.
alltho it could use a final i like that you made in an 8k instead of cutting it to pieces to make it fit 4.

rulez added on the 2012-10-08 15:01:32 by degauss degauss
I like the general design, the lush colors and the playful feel.
What i don't like is the fact that it runs pretty slow on my setup and that the music, although very nice in it self, doesn't really fit the groove and mood of the whole.

But, considering the overall absence of actual problematic flaws, it is pretty good. Thumbs up!

added on the 2012-10-08 17:17:16 by noby noby
well, fastprod ;) music is way bigger than normally...but i didnt want virgill having to destroy it, and as we realized its a mixed intro-compo at around the same time, we chose to not try to get back under 4k ;) instead i added greets ;) its not far from 4k tho, if i remove the text-overlays and obfuscate the rest of the shadercode (its only partly obfuscated as the deadline approached pretty fast and as said, we didnt care about the size anymore!)
really fugly colors but the rest is actually quite cool!

This came close to winning by only 10 points, which is good.
Technically not impressive, as I prefer immediate ray-tracing over ray-marching. That can be faster and therefore allows making glass.
But I like it as a casual everyday intro, it makes my mind dance. Should not show the same effects for that long time, and never repeat the same scene without change.

crinkler.exe /recompress demofile.exe

Get between 15 and 50Fps (most at ~35) on my i5 @ 4.7Ghz and GTX 660 @ 1.3Ghz / 6610Ghz with 314.22 drivers.

Nice, but somehow the colour palette does not agree with my eyes. Still on the thumb-up -side of things, tho.

Mention *9* times a final is coming...2 *years* ago! lol! IRL priorities I guess. :) Can we still have hope for 2015? Maybe before the decade is out in December 2019? One thing for sure, a final before the end of the century in 2099 would be greatly appreciated! ;)

Nice one, though somewhat generic visually. Virgill's music never disappoints.
