(yes I can watch this on the real thing o/)

The concept works well and the soundtrack is superb.
The effects are great too.

On the downside, the rendering of the 3D stuff does not look very good, but it's hard to juge given the hardware.

Android \o/

The lighting looks interesting (though a bit glitchy at times). I've been working with something a bit similar maybe, would love to see a post about it in directtovideo :)

Looks and sounds great but seems to randomly crash on my Nexus 4 and doesn't keep the screen from turning off.

Couldn't hear music, and only got black screen \ Android (Galaxy S3). Watched the stream however. Cool demo!
rulez added on the 2014-03-26 09:46:17 by rudi rudi
looks great on a nexus 10 :) like the sync, especially on the liquid/bass resonance, but could have done with some strong colour ala dead roman to break up the visuals.

Update of lighting bugged a bit, but otherwise looked fine. Missed some colour. Music a bit bland. Watched on nVidia Shield.

Video already plx!
My "computer" cant handle this, it´s still residing on Android 2.3! ;(
Visuals look rather nice!
I had exact same problem as raina on a Nexus 4 as well. Didn't try another device yet, though we have several different devices at hand in the office.
My guess is that it's a specific audio fomat decoding library that's not supported/present on the given handset (I've experienced several problems with this in regards to different video formats on Android devices before)

I'll keep my thumb untill I hear lug00berss sound! :)
added on the 2014-03-26 13:22:19 by Puryx Puryx
Sorry - it's a mix of raina and rudis issues - saw no crash yet, but I don't have sound, and the screen dims during the show.
added on the 2014-03-26 13:23:27 by Puryx Puryx
just installed this on my s4 (active):
its runs rather nice, apart from the screenlock kicking in theres another issue however: it doesnt turn the phone into landscape mode but uses whatever direction it has when starting the demo.
it looks rather interesting in 9:16(?), but renders all text unreadable since it is cut off.
the demo itself is brilliant, following the fairlightish tradition of the invite now here is the real deal ;).
The track by lug00ber is very cool and not your usual dubstep - is there a (longer?) download version up somewhere?

Surprisingly enough, this actually runs acceptably on my Galaxy S Plus (Adreno 205).
But yea, as mentioned... rather sloppy code... doesn't force landscape, and doesn't prevent the lockscreen from kicking in... Makes it annoying to watch (you have to periodically touch the screen).

Watched it quickly on the stream, and looking forward to a decent capture so i can see the details. Looks pretty good. I like the concept (guessing it's inspired by that projection mapping video with the robots. Lighting looks great.

Ok for being your first Android demo. You'll get a motivational up-thumb if you fix some of the Mali incompatibility issues.
*cue for a joke that we already established in 2004 to have incompatibility issues*

this one was pretty last minute, rushed and buggy so consider it a "party version" ok.. :)

ive uploaded a fix for the screenblanking and orientation issue:

it needs a gles2 - capable device, but if its not working on yours please let me know - id like to try get it as compatible as possible. (im open to all donations of hardware to test on ;) )

I got "E/libEGL ( 5473): called unimplemented OpenGL ES API".
Suspect there's something wrong with the context allocation (like not explicitly setting the context version to 2), in addition to the "<uses-feature android:glEsVersion="0x00020000"></uses-feature>" which is missing from the apk manifest.
Neither the fix worked on SGS3. Specs: Mali-400 MP, 17 ext., Android ver. 4.1.2. OpenGL ES 2.0. Shading language: OpenGL ES GLSL ES 1.00.

Shading language too be 2.0 (GLSL 2.0)? I can prolly dump a list of the whole spec + extensions if needed. There are 17 extensions on my device.

I wont thumb this down, due to being a party version!
But so far i don´t like it at all!
- Light-"sphere"
-> add more polygons! even if that means you have to have 2 models for "spheres" ;) (Its at that point the only sphere in the scene anyway!)
- DoorOpens()
-> add sound to music, this obviously kills the atmosphere instantly!
- Music:
-> Remove Vocals! (this one is maybe only my preferrence, do whatever you want, its your demo!)

In general i completely agree with your attitude to show stuff that is for nextGen-Hardware, BUT only if it atleast runs on a framerate close to 25. But you seem to have went beyond that! Wanting to show sth vs. the actual framerate it gives is sth you still have to get in control of! Learn that ffs!
I have to admit i only watched the youtube, which seems very low on framerate, but its a constant in all of your releases, people keep ranting about it, so maybe you should keep those demos back for some 1-2 years until people kept up with their hardware! It´s just not kewl to start the newest fairlight-release only to find out you should stop it right away once again to try it in some years again! ;)
I am doing 4ks and i have to deal with it myself as Graphics-Cards still dont deliver the power thats needed for some scenes i wanted to present, but atleast those scenes still reside on my HDD and i havent put em in some 4k, just to show off! :p
Your goal should be to deliver HighTech-Graphic-Rendering while staying ~30fps on middleEnd-Hardware! :p
Sorry for ranting inbetween trying to show you what´s wrong!
Hardy: what? This is an android demo that runs fine on regular hardware..
added on the 2014-03-27 03:45:00 by smash smash
yeah, may be! (i said i watched the YT only!)
But its a general thing with your demos i was ranting about! ;)

about this demo: it´s almost boring compared to what you delivered in the past! ;)

I´ll wait for the final to put my thumb, will make sure to watch on real hardware, capable of this! ;)
Nicely done, but well... the idea had potential for a bit more...

the visual concept is partly interesting (esp. the last scene) and the music has a nice 90ties vibe.
but all in all it's too monotonous for my taste and the music feels disconnected from the visuals.

Big thumb for Demolition on Android!! :) More! (But what tomas^ed said.) The demo is REALLY dark, so for 10 seconds at the beginning you see nothing and the cube waves before the horizontal black voxels are very hard to see. So max out your brightness setting. Performed well on Xperia Z.

I agree it's better on a device than on the YouTube capture; works fine on my Nexus 5. (Well, except that if I try to rotate the screen, all visuals hang and I have to kill systemserver to get the phone to work again… urm.)

But I can't help to shake the feeling that this is a little bit boring. :-) Also, seriously, guys: 63MB for a mobile demo? For _this_ mobile demo?
