Finally I watched it by youtube but I liked to see it in with an emu on my netbook. Any tips? I tried ZXspin, I couldn't boot ;'(

Bucketload, you want to use one of emulators with support for beta disc interface. The freely available ones are Fuse or Unreal. Spectaculator 8 is also very good, but not free.

In either one of them, you would need to select TR-DOS option from the menu and type RUN "HEART" to start the program.

This prod is an interesting mixture: an old school megademo with the elements of trackmo. As usual, one has large parts, which you are supposed to skip through by pressing the space button. At the same time, many parts, e.g. intro or credits are styled as mini-trackmos, which makes this megademo surprisingly fresh to watch. In my opinion, the introduction, the dendrites and the credits parts are the particular highlights.

This party version is uneven in that some parts are distinctly more boring than others. The authors are talking about a much improved post-party release in a few weeks time. However, in line with the usual megademo exuberance, there is enough quality content here already.

Ah, forgot to mention, there is a hilarious hidden part in the 48K mode (which can be reached by going into 48K BASIC option in the 128K menu and typing RANDOMIZE USR 15619: REM: RUN "HEART").

:P no problem
I managed to run it, very space on windows, need ctrl+p to type ". also it's case sensitive. I could unpack amiga fuse rom by aminet... =]
Now let see that hidden part ;)
Hehe, megademo. Many stuff, some nice gfx, anims there.

Some weird parts, but pretty cool megademo overall. Definitely deserves a thumb.

Really nice graphics.

This bunch of code, music and gfx could become really good dynamic trackmo... if not lame 'press space odyssey'-like style. My thumbup by no means is for AAA itself, but for all other people worked on this demo. Sad that you can't cooperate without aaa...

and yes, I personally down-name-voted this entry at DH14 lite. ЫЫЫ, it's your fault, try not to write shit about me :)

Dear friend LVD, shit about you is not coming from the AAA. It is itself arose. Its nature, I can not understand. But I heard that people saw something in the live broadcast. Summary pritenziya is that wrong vote. I put one in the first place, but it turns out it was necessary to put 9. In the end, the vote produces unexpected results.

Mixed back, but some very good stuck (specially lack some of the graphics)

Would have loved to see the ball in the lower left quarter of the screen shot, but could not even find it after watching the video. Pitty. The heart animation at 2:20 is pretty cool. Unfortunately Pouet makes the .nfo look, well, Turiksh?
added on the 2014-01-07 20:46:10 by JAC! JAC!
JAC!, the part where the credits are is generating the animation frames on-the-fly out of godzillion possibilities (I think that silly animated dialogues hides the precalc). You need to keep that part running long enough to get this specific animation too.
The *.nfo is partly in Russian. I'll help the guys to translate it fully into English when the post-party version is ready.

The demo completely fails to run if you have less than 71680 t-states in frame or if you are in turbo mode.
> generating the animation frames on-the-fly out of godzillion possibilities
I see, thanks.
>The *.nfo is partly in Russian
I know, I was referring to Pouet's famous "Uniode does not work in <enter section>" :-)

Hey, is it a megademo or is it a trackmo?

I'm confused. :D

Nice demo. Btw. did X-Agon agree with using his old song in the outro part?

Nice demo with few great effects. But there are alot of boring parts. And megademo style made me sad (pressing space and etc).

Great efect and grafics, but is too long.

shitloads of work, most of it is crap but there are some nice scenes in there somewhere
rulez added on the 2014-02-07 02:32:02 by psenough psenough
Anyways, since many of the musics are remakes or copies of other (Game) musics, (The Light Corridor, for example, in the part with the impaled guy on a sun-dial), could at least someone list the original music-names of those that are remakes in this Demo? Thanks.
