Insanely superb.
Made me feel like if the 80's were still alive and way way cooler than what they were indeed.

Wow, some great code in there. First gouraud cube I see on spectrum that is not with chunky 4*4 maybe. And some good vector stuff.

I have mixed feelings about it. But stunning code and killer soundtrack pull this demo off.
Actually, i guess, there was no any reason (except blind ambitions) in 48k self-limitation. This demo can be done a bit (way) better in 128k.
Then again, lack of design and pace (due to eternal loadings), and, on the other hand, effects that were never seen before. So, still thumb up. Mostly, for soundtrack, gouraud and last road scene.
rulez added on the 2015-03-15 20:34:17 by sq sq
@sq: I have a clear reason to produce programs for 48K. The Spectrum 48 was the only machine that has been cloned and mass produced in Brazil by Microdigital (TK90X and TK95 models). I still own my TK90X since 1986 and I love to see new prods running on it. I have another reason to have almost no interest in 128K demos. I also own an Amiga and when I have an urge to see better demos, I prefer this hardware.

Very nice sound track. Love the flow of the demo.

48k/Pentagon detector would be highly appreciated. The final picture looks awful glitch on Pentagon.

Pentagon version added (tested on different implementations in Unreal Speccy, Spectaculator, Fuse, Xpeccy, zxemul (DOS) and ZX Evo baseconf).
Thanks a lot!

@sq, fixed (the bug was as follows: reset in DOS in TR-DOS 5.04TM made nonzero 23728..23729). Thanks for the report!
OK, so we have a demo, coded by the best coder on the platform, who decided to pay some attention to the design aspects of his work. Now, it is easy to criticize some of the choices made here; the demo is often not so good-looking, the fixation with the 48K is understandable, but hard to relate to for many people, and the ending is way too abrupt.

With all this being said, this demo does have a narrative structure, cleverly uses sync to emphasize its key points and has few effects to die for. This thing may well be the most demoish demo Alone Coder ever made.
rulez added on the 2015-03-16 15:23:55 by introspec introspec
I completely agree with introspec! Most demoish demo coded by Alone Coder. I like those realtime effects, beautiful gfx by Trixs, and altrough some boring parts, overall feeling is very good. It was a fair fight in one category with us. I looking forward for next year, guys. ;)

i really dont know what kind of bullshit is that
"there was no any reason (except blind ambitions) in 48k self-limitation. This demo can be done a bit (way) better in 128k".

i dont know what is a reason (except blind ambitions) in Amiga500 self-limitation. demos can be done a bit (way) better in Amiga1200.

i dont know what is a reason (except blind ambitions) in C64 self-limitation. demos can be done a bit (way) better in C128.

and overall i dont know what is a reason (except blind ambitions) in 8bit and 16 computers self-limitation. Demos can be done a bit (way) better in modern PC/windows.

you are sad.

Pacing was good, there's definitely some cool design elements and I loved how fast and smooth that gouraud shaded cube was. Whatever object it was that came after it looked fucking horrible and unfinished, but there's probably some stuff going on there that I don't quite understand (:

Simply brilliant. Technically perfect - and it has a necessary flow, it has its unity. It is not an ordinary boring 48K megademo (aka a "collection of disparate effects"). (To be annoying: it would be better to make it for 128K.)

Damn what a hardware squeezer. Also stable rastereffects, which AFAIK is a pain in the ass to do on ZX spectrum, and most likely even more painful when dealing with 48k of memory.

Sure, graphically it might be not the best, but damn is it coderporn at its finest.

@TomoAlien, there is only one true raster effect, in the end (btw it seems to work on +3, too - I tested it lately). But the car, scroll and balls are more or less raster synchronized because of one screen buffer :)
good work!

The sources as always. The archive is a copy of the shared folder, it contains all the assembly and data files, the storyboard (it slightly changed over time) and some directories for 3rd party tools to compile and link with batch scripts. Developer chat that was there is not included.

What you need to compile and run this:
- install Fuse emulator
- put mhmt.exe and bit2tap.exe in parts/tools
- put sjasmplus.exe in parts/sjasm
Just wondering - why Alone yell "stolen" effects?

Impressive effects, and thumbs up for sharing the code. But I didn't enjoy it as a demo.
I find loading for a few minutes just to show a few seconds of effects really obnoxious and tiresome. And the parts where you have to wait and wait, and you just see a picture (albeit a nice one), feels like a slap in the face.

> I find loading for a few minutes just to show a few seconds of effects

At the party, demo was shown from DivIDE, which traps tape loader routines and pumps data from flash card. More, being DivIDE-friendly is a long tradition and requirement of Forever parties and every ZX demo there uses DivIDE with (almost) instant loadings. It have long been a standard in this world.

So just turn on similar thing in your emulator -- or install DivIDE in your rubber speccy.
added on the 2016-01-05 18:28:41 by lvd lvd
This is exactly why Alone Coder is being criticized, lvd. He claims that only 48k demos are authentic, as opposed to 128k demos, but when people complain about prolonged tape loading, you refer them to a piece of twenty first century hardware. Inconsistent.
