The link is to BB final version 3 no less, released a couple of years after the party :) I guess it's updated with a newer version of their AA-lib, which is a ASCII graphics library.

The demo is quite interesting, and a recommended download. Might not fare well with 2000/XP.

As it clearly states, this is actually originally a linux demo and is in fact bundled with (at least) Knoppix 3.2 and 3.3. But it's portable :-)
The beginning is very Matrixish, and in a good way. And then it becomes just plain cool.

It's been on 3.4, 3.6, and 3.8 (dunno about 3.5, didn't have that one) knoppix cd's, and will prolly just be on every one (: And, yes, it's just a straight up good demo, with very clever use of the AA lib they wrote.
dammit I thot I hit thumbage. Bad truck.
a classic one..

"wow". this is a truly mega-sucky demo. fuckings to ugly textmode, and fuckings to lameass-2d-fractals.

I think I found this on Hornet a long time ago.. Nice ASCII 3D and a good soundtrack.

Total Textmode ´tainment!

very mediocre, way overrated, plus an undeservedly arrogant infofile.

then again, it being a knoppix/linux thing it's probably marketed to people who've never seen a textmode demo before, and i guess it sure is cool enough for that.

This is probably one of the first demos I've seen (was bundled with Knoppix live CD).
Great music, great memories... :)

I've watched this demo years ago, when I installed libaa in my PC with Debian. It still impress me as much as the first time I watched.

Oh my. I remember this being supplied as part of a knoppix based recovery CD in 2003 or so. First demo i ever saw ever. It is probably even better nowadays now that i know what the hell is going on what it was supposed to be.

decent linux textmode demo

Gotta love the name. Also classic.

Just one demo that can launch on my notebook.

One of my favorites, spent a while trying to hunt down a bug that caused it crash at the torus when compiled for 64-bit x86 and run with a large console size. sizeof(long) == sizeof(int) isn't always true, guys :-P

Seriously though, I freaking love this demo, the music is great, the effects are cool, and it's just plain fun. One of the all-time best, and all it needs is text.

Classic. Textmode, Linux, and great music, what could possibly go wrong?

Fucking excellent !

Still one of the best Linux demos. (Works fine when compiled from source with the Debian patches.)

I tried making a better capture (the youtube one is an eyesore), but ffmpeg is too much of a resource hog on my old laptop for the framerate to be stable enough :/
