If this is your whole demo then at least get the melody right...

This demo is a macgyverism itself.

Sorry chucky, didn't enjoy the cover or visuals, I thought the contour filter worked better for Ika i Rutan.

That a thumb up is for doing something completely wierd! I dunno what the destination of doing this was. Real good WTF moment, thanks!

This demo seems to have had the exact effect that we were looking for. Bull's eye! Hope you had a minute of fun :)

Noby: Well, I think I did what I could. Sorry if it wasn't fun for you or pleased you in some other way. If you could point out where I wrote the melody wrong and how it should be instead, maybe I could fix it :)

The use of theegg in macgyver has been a dream of mine for a year or so. Now it finally happened! I put a folder of st01 in my amiga and wrote the song as good as I could, but wasn't totally happy with it until I had used ahhvox från st02.

Actually these demos (Ika I rutan and Macgyver) are remixes of old "demos" that me and Fred made in a barn at some black birdie party. With that background it's kind of evident that these demos are mostly fucked up stuff and ideas of watching intros in vector form. The visuals end up being prettttty bizarre!

Since we (I) like stuff like this and find it being a good laugh at times, more vector weird animation stuff might come!? It also works as way of learning to code on various platforms and/or languages. It's also fun to release stuff from time to time instead of just working on old SAABs (for my part, I guess other group members do other things :P) . So I guess that's the purpose or determination of this.

Gouafhg: kind of hard to pinpoint any specific parts because there are so many... all of the notes are from the correct scales but a lot of the intervals are messed up, and everything is further hindered by the fact that the melody isn't polyphonic, which certainly should've been possible within the four channels. Don't worry though, I too did some module conversions (by ear) of well known songs back in my teens, and even though I thought I had got it pretty close some people told me they were annoyed by the errors :)

Kudos for trying something different, but it didn't work for me at all.

Most parts are way too busy and look like just a bunch of random lines. Also I hardly even recognized title music. Maybe you got away from GEMA that way. :)

Well let's see, it looks bad and sounds totally horrible (how can one get the notes so wrong, by purpose?).. Sorry, no.

Yes, true, lots (!) of stuff going on in the original with melodies in multiple parts, timings a bit off etc. It would certainly have been possible to get it better! Also, it could've been easier to sample and/or mix a lot more, but I wanted it simple and oldschool so somewhere the line had to be drawn :) Gah! It actually sounds like something I could've written in my teens! :D

So when saying that I did what I could I guess I'm more into that the notes that are there should be alright, that timings should be somewhat alright, the parts and fills in correct order. Not so much a perfect replica. But in regards to that it's not the perfect work either, so there should definitely be rooms for improvement! :)

I had some fun for a minute, but it is still not a good demo. Don't do it again, mkay?

Oh we will not do stuff like this again...promise... .... .... .... ... (Whistles some..). :)

nice idea but eyecancer. at least mono and not colored. still fat motivational thumbs up for making something different :)

You have some weird dreams. :)

The music was lol-worthy, but the visuals were hard to make out, especially if the music wasn't there. Would rather have seen color polys or just flat out video than monochrome lines. Need to work on filtering out junk/noise so the main stuff stands out. Piggy for the idea.

as said, good idea, terrible execution. also demoish anim stuff would look better with demoish music.
