Great fresh and modern demo for oldschool A500! Very good job!

nice - some good ideas in this one!

Fresh effects (as usual from Slummy) but still feels like an Amiga demo, cool! Excellent music and the shading/dithering looks particularly cool. Only minor complaint: should have less black backgrounds. ;) Anyway, super enjoyable A500 demo, thanks! :)

Nice effects.. sometimes a bit to repetitive..
Demo misses some design/2d gfx imho..

Ends to abrupt..

nice to see a white Spaceballs logo again ;)

Yup, routines seems very similar, maybe small difference in the expanding balls, which is a cool effect.
But it's nicely put, runs on barestock A500, it's short and cool and i like the soundtrack! <3

Plenty of re-purposed and evolved routines, but it's put together so nicely I just have to give it a thumb. OCS FTW!

He is angry. He is retired. And he is the Bastard. From time to time he leaves his korvkiosk and humiliates other Amiga coders. But of course everything he does, he does with Norwegian kindness. Emperor of the North Pole!

It’s the third part of Slummy’s modern OCS trilogy and probably my fav one. With Vold, Straff and this one he proves that there’s still a lot of potential in Amiga 500 and that OCS demo doesn’t have to look like it was made in 1993.

Fresh effects, fitting music, the sync and that feeling of not being sure whether you’re watching OCS or AGA demo :)

I’m speechless for now!

Atari musician doing Amiga music eh? Welcoming those 4 channels of PCM now aren't you!

Anyways, f**k me that's good. Some proper clever shizzle going on there. I've actually started work on an OCS demo but this kinda makes me wanna give up! and of course the soundtrack rocks!

nice track but with cheesy and overused 303 sounds.

So while this demo re-uses some code I quite like it anyway. It's nice to see fresh stuff on A500 with some good design and music that fits well.

Slummy, it gets better and better! You are close to perfectioning your unique bloody awesome style!
I love every pixel in this demo. Recycling they say? Fuck them. It's evolution.

I know that you put shitloads of work into this demo. Thanks for rocking the A500 that noone else can. You simply rule!

The music was great too even though it came from an Atari dude seemingly!.. ;P

Currently celebrating his tenth year as a Spaceballs member. The Amiga scene must be desperate.
Also, I've never been a part of any Atari release, so it's probably more correct to label me as a "PC dude".

So the audience has spoken, and obviously we should make demos with 27K code, 10K graphics, 120K music, and 534K of precalc data and yes, animations.

It's silly because everything you see can be done just like this, but with more colors, in real-time on A500.

I'm oldskool, Spaceballs is not, and shadebobs with color cycle was lame in 1987.

Then why don't you do it then ?
Still have to see yer 1Klång replayer applied to a major "full disk" production or at least a proper intro (40k, 64k).

to topic then...
Yet have to watch it on my 500 at home, hence no thumbs for now.
The recording, however, promised some evolution of the effects established in Vold & Straff.

Dodge: That's funny after I've told you what it is that actually fills up the disk in this prod ;) Actually, I exaggerated the music size. It's 105K.

Why aren't you complaining why 4Klang isn't "applied" to full 50MB PC demos then? :D

If Sonix is OK for synth music, you can see it applied in Uncle Tom Sonix.

All right, watched it on the 500 and it's glorious.
Although I'm not a big fan of black backgrounds it was the obvious choice to convey the atmosphere intended.
My stylistic favorit was the blue'ish tinted raster scene with the bopping circles and this marvelous shine-through palette.
