We got disqualified because it crashed on the compo machine. Too bad we couldn't make it to the party to look into the issue ourself, due to miscommunication we now heard of it too late to do anything.

Anyway. we still like you to enjoy some Happy Holidays! :)

Greetings part feels completely out of place and doesn't look good but everything else is lovely! Why was it disqualified?

God rest you merry gentlemen and thanks for the greets! One of my favourite christmas tunes ever. I like the fact that there were many other references to Christmas songs as well. Visuals were realy cute as well and it ran perfect here, bummer that it got disqualified. Happy Holidays!

Hmm, a simple hand-drawn graphics and lag on my computer...
Inque and Poo-Brain, you just happy holidays!
Interesting demoscene, go into my collection :)

Lovely one, such a shame you were disqualified.

I'm really sorry - now after watching it - that it got disqualified.

Tried to find the appropriate DLLs for the organizers to get it run on a machine without the June 2010 SDK - no chance (and the others ate my Schnitzel in the meanwhile!).

June 2010 DX is deprecated - please avoid this dependency.
But on Win8.1 d3dcompiler_47 is available ;)
And what the heck do you need XAudio for?

very nice, i like the colour scheme, seasons greetings :)

Thanks a lot for sacrificing your schnitzel by helping us out las! And yes, I think you're right; this might be a good moment to update/reconsider some of my framework dependencies :)

And XAudio 2.7 is used for our softsynth. We had previously been relying on DirectSound and then upgraded to XAudio, since it kind of does the same thing. But I didn't know of its versioning issues on Win8 (stock Windows 8 apparently only comes with XAudio 2.8).

Forgot my thumb.

Sweet 64k :)
What a pitty it got fucked by Win8 incompatibilities =(
rulez added on the 2014-12-31 13:50:32 by T$ T$
We use winmm all the time, because it's available everywhere.
Do you use any fancy features from XAudio?

I would recommend: Make your stuff run at least on a vanilla Win 8.1 (i.e. fresh Win 8.1 install + graphics driver, no additional dx user runtimes) - if you want to go crazy, also support a fallback for d3dcompiler_43.dll or something like that - so it will run on a lot of older systems (otherwise you will certainly get some strange thumbdowns).
Drop XAudio if possible and switch to something more classic.
added on the 2014-12-31 14:22:35 by las las
Thanks! I completely agree :) And no, we weren't actually using anything from XAudio that we can't do with winmm AFAIK.

Very nice graphics, sounded more like a 4k, though. Would have been nice to see it at the party.

Just okish then.

Not bad, but a bit late? Or maybe too early for 2015. ;) I had to watch it on YouTube. :P
