I know the nfo sais to wait for the final but its been 3 weeks now...
Of course a new version can always be added later, so dont be too harsh on the bugs =)

This is a fairly rough party version :(
Final coming soon.

Next time I would very much appreciate if you could honour the authors' wishes explicitly expressed in the .nfo file and, at the very least, get in touch with the authors before making a release.

kinda ok, waiting for final ;)
I already feel like 'final' version (if any) would be totally different from 'party' version. So this pouet addition has its point.
Also, every demoparty explicitely states that all prods could be spread without a limit. So if smbdy doesn't want his prod to be on pouet, he shouldn't send it to any party.

Im not into russian zx drama but if its good enough for the compo its good enough for pouet. If you want to preview to a limited audience do it out of compo.
(Plus how long are we supposed to wait for the final? Until everybody forgot about it?)

Having that said theres nothing to be ashamed about this release, just watched it on FUSE.
Nice music and smooth FX :)

Отличная дема. У ААА нет вопросов. Коротко конечно, но у интроспека пока коротко. Но говорят он ставит имплант и скоро будет длинно))

По Англиски:
This is small demo. Guten tagen introspec smal pennis. Sprehen Sie Bite big Chlenos implantus coming Soon 2016 und New Megademo For Introspec - Implantus Megademo for Pentagon 128.

Вроде все верно написал.

Introspec не скучай! Передавай привет королеве Великобритании. Попроси ее о гоммунитарной помощи ААА. Мне срочно нужен Land Rover Evog, с белой урышей и синим окрасом. Моя карточка сберегательного банка для перевода средств:
67628038 9133922133

Попроси ее перевести мне 20000 Euro . Пожалуйста. Plees или Pliz блин, ну короче встретишь Аннушку, скажи ей вот номер карточки переведи на нее деньги чтобы у ААА было всё хорошо.

Интроспек кроме тебя мне надеется не накого. сам я столько не заработаю.

Please do not upload this version onto the Pouet.

LVD, the main attribute of glopwhore is impatience. If I was a glopwhore, I would have already uploaded the latest issue of infoguide to dihalt 2015 wild compo. But I don't. So :-P.

here is a long-awaited spot where i can put a thumbup to one demo twice. so, here's the first.
but i'll hold my comment to final version.
rulez added on the 2015-07-24 14:57:38 by sq sq
and, lvd, diver has:
prods added 396 x 2 = 792 glöps
comments 749 glöps

let's take a look, how much glöps in regard to prods-added/comments ratio do others have.

Lame 8x8 2D effects. Let's remember that ZX Spectrum can do 1x1 pixel effects and even 3D, even without 128K requirement, and it's 2015, not 1991, there are tutorials everywhere.

Childish symmetric composition. The author was told about that long ago. No art compensating this.

Sometimes the amount of work can be seen. In this case, it's near zero (except the composer's work).

Why demos can evolve if stuff like this is thumbed up? However this will be thumbed by certain people. Because the author knows what friendship is profitable and whom to call "twats" and how to "piss off a certain pinnacle of morality". The author also writes that "code isn't needed" and "stealing is a holy right of everybody".

I don't like to consume shit. I don't want demoscene to be like this. And I'm not afraid of thumbing down.

@alone coder
the fact is this is style, more than code (even if i only knows to do a function under lua so then hum !) this is style and this is fresh. i would love to see this king of demo more often. yes it rocks

wtf.device, sorry for being rude. it was my fault to upload it to ftp.

introspec sorry for releasing the binaries, next time i will not upload it to scene.org.
added on the 2015-07-24 20:47:43 by diver diver
tbh i fail to see the problem. a release is a release and i dont think its shameful to release a partyversion which aint perfect (yet). I think most sceners (if not all) are aware of deadlines and what they mean for a prod. If someone is so unsatisfied with his work he doesn't want the public to see (or vote on) it why not work on it some more instead of pressuring people to not spread the release afterwards?
added on the 2015-07-24 21:37:15 by wysiwtf wysiwtf
Отрицательный отзыв самого Алоне Кодера, это хороший удар в печень зазнавшегося Интроспека. Может этот удар остудит его божий пыл и он вернется на дно, чтобы стать сильней и начать делать демо а не говно.
yes it rocks

Well, here is the final version of "Eager".

I will upload a video with the audio recorded off the real Spectrum onto the Youtube tonight.

super stereo enhancement!
really final version.

rulez added on the 2015-08-06 12:54:20 by VBI VBI
Great final version! Design, music, details, timing. COOL!
yet again, i am not afraid to thumb this up, and i'd do it onсe more if i could.
speaking of this demo, it's close to perfect in almost any visual aspect, although it has some moments, but who cares. also it's quite an enjoyable bonus to see a jealous rage of the ones who cannot a shit into design. while they are running off at the mouth in the impotent fury, others are making an real demos.

on the whole, thanks for this! we are looking forward for the next.
added on the 2015-08-06 23:55:03 by sq sq
This is a Youtube video of the final version, which was made using audio recorded by diver^4d from the real ZX Evolution ("Pentevo"): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqY-CMonYzU

Of course, no-one needs this link because everyone watches demos on real computers or, in absolutely dire straights, in emulators, right?
added on the 2015-08-07 02:34:09 by introspec introspec
stylish visuals, good music. i like it, no matter how much code is involved. my only issue with it is that it's too long - could be easily packed in under 3 minutes without losing anyting.
rulez added on the 2015-08-07 03:31:48 by dipswitch dipswitch
OK, since it has been repeated so many times...

I do not accept the accusation that this demo contains no code.

This demo features visuals, done in a way they were not done on Spectrum before (chaos zoomer in particular springs to mind), all played at 50Hz along with the true digi-drums soundtrack. The fact that I do not like my demos boast or look sweaty does not make them trivial.
added on the 2015-08-07 03:54:05 by introspec introspec
i have no idea about code at all, so it was no "accusation" from me - i just reflected on wht has been said here about it, basically saying that i don't care, since it looks good =)
added on the 2015-08-07 03:56:00 by dipswitch dipswitch
No, I did not mean you personally :)

However, you did say "no matter how much code is involved", so you are clearly on the defensive.

I actually did not write "code isn't needed" on one of the Russian forums, as one of the commenters claimed. I wrote "Code is dead", which is a paraphrase of you-know-what and by that I meant that even the best coders on the platform have no clue anymore. No need to be apologetic then.

― Arthur Conan Doyle, A Study in Scarlet

About 30kb of texts describing what people should believe introspec did.

And once again no party version any more -- no chance to compare with final one, eh? As I said before, they differ quite a lot, but all links are now removed so noone is able to check.

i think the glöperators dont like to spam a prod with extra links so they update the existing ones.

Big thanks for the nfo file alone, I love reading technical write-ups! Helps in understanding what I'm seeing/hearing, too.

The demo itself is quite good as well, although it started out better and then lost steam. The design is good though, and I like the sync!
