Awesome! Some demo with an actual story!

My personal #1 of this party. Marvellous!

Decent work from LFT. My personal favourite (but i have to watch all demos again to decide finally ;) Best thing is the sync of Music and Visual... nice story.

Great demo :)

Two disksides, everything including the loader by one person. That alone would've been impressive, but the effects are cool and original, the soundtrack is sweet, and the graphics style is coherent. Winner.

C64 demo with a consistent theme! And it's even executed well, damn. Preemptively calling out that this should've won.

some very nice and fresh effects, design, good tune and a purring cat. what's not to like here?

Absolutely lovely!!!

Really nice stuff! Would love some additional information about the new hardware tricks and how they work. Fun to see a demo that breaks properly in Vice nowadays :D

WHOOOOOOOOOooOO. Amazing, beautiful, fresh, incredible. How did this not win!?!? Perhaps the name-voting power was too low, because it was - incredibly - made by LFT only. Mind = blown.

The music was perhaps a little too melancholic even for my tastes. ;) Personally, I would have broken the harmony a tiny bit with some Spanish/diminished/jazzy/abstract stuff.
rulez added on the 2016-10-31 12:24:34 by yzi yzi
Ferris: It works in VICE, but you might need to run x64sc rather than x64. (You should be doing that anyway.)
added on the 2016-10-31 15:57:38 by Radiant Radiant
Fantastic style, rarely seen such a coherent c64 demo.

Flow!
rulez added on the 2016-10-31 19:47:59 by slyspy slyspy
the work in this in tremendous but it would have benefitted from a slightly better job in the gfx/color department, imho.
Well, cant be top of the game in everything and still doing things like this in under 10 years of time I guess...

lft rulez.
rulez added on the 2016-10-31 19:53:03 by wysiwtf wysiwtf
Exactly what utz said. Also, just brilliant for a one man prod.
rulez added on the 2016-10-31 20:03:54 by break break
As previously mentioned, a strong one man show. While the code is the strongest part, combined with a good visual theme and some nice audionoiseparts to set the right mood. The melodies is the weakest part IMHO, but overall still a thumb.
rulez added on the 2016-10-31 20:56:01 by Frequent Frequent
Nice and consistent theme, good effects, good entertainment, good music.

What Radiant said. And even the beginning with Workbench alone deserves the thumb.

As a C64 demo this is really something else; rarely do you see this kind of flow on the platform. Technically, aesthetically and aurally a pleasure as well.
rulez added on the 2016-11-01 00:15:08 by Alpha C Alpha C
Graphics look a bit iffy at times (also: those guns remind me of a certain pouet logo :), but the tech research and some of the effects are surely top of the line. Great note file too. Most groups don't bother with note files anymore, but this one is not only very long and informative, but also serves a purpose related to the demo.
rulez added on the 2016-11-01 11:44:18 by tomaes tomaes
Incredible demo.

Radiant: Nice, what's the difference between the two VICE versions?

A great notefile and an even greater demo. I'll take my hat off and bow to you.
rulez added on the 2016-11-01 12:35:50 by Preacher Preacher
One of my favourite C64 demos, now :)
rulez added on the 2016-11-01 13:16:25 by FreeFull FreeFull
ferris: One is cycle accurate, the other isn't. Basically a rewritten emulation engine from what I gather.
added on the 2016-11-01 13:26:00 by Radiant Radiant
And now for something completely different....
rulez added on the 2016-11-01 13:29:26 by hooverphonique hooverphonique
x64sc is the cycle accurate one (if you havent figured yet), downside is it eats a lot more CPU (which shouldnt be a big problem in this day and age on regular PCs, but may be for some weaker handheld/embedded ports).

Oniric, classy, innovative, technical, romantic, distinguishable, fresh, inspired, inspiring and from the same man. What should a release give more than this, should make you coffee the morning after?

For couples of month I was wondering if we will see any new big projects from you... as I am sure you are very busy and even more as the family get bigger!? (if I am correct)... The music & sound is amazing! I am also curious about the new tricks you have found - which is something I look to check in your .d64 once I finish to view (re-view) the prods from X2016! The animated rain drop pattern make me though about a demo and article (http://cpc.sylvestre.org/articles/articles_makingof4.html) related with the Amstrad CPC by Les Sucres en Morceaux.

A very nice demo... but I hope next time that we could see more colors!
rulez added on the 2016-11-03 18:26:49 by F-Cycles F-Cycles
Coder porn and good style and flow, but I also think that this demo would have benefitted from a graphician.
rulez added on the 2016-11-03 21:22:06 by Kylearan Kylearan
Holy shit. O_o
rulez added on the 2016-11-03 22:23:58 by jimmi jimmi
I like how it turned out. I don't necessarily think it needed more colors, like others say. I do think the bouncing ball scene with the large scroller text was a little out of place, but other than that this is excellent.

I really like the woodwind-like sound in the music, or whatever I should call it. Like a clarinet, almost?
Also, some great VIC-II trickery going on. The bumpmapped rain part is really clever!
rulez added on the 2016-11-06 20:02:41 by Scali Scali
LFT delivers, as usual. I'd be very interested to read a write-up about the new VIC thecniques used.

Very nicely made, with properly fitting music. Like an ASD demo on C64. Lost me a little toward the end, though.

rulezcdc added on the 2016-11-12 16:39:22 by mermaid mermaid
That is quite dreamy. One of my favorites in the compo.

I noticed there were 3 screens that wouldn't work on winvice, the flickered wrong screens, but I later found there is another executable for accurate emulation. I am wondering what kind of hardware trick these screen achieve that is hard to emulate. Did LFT invented some new tricky stuff again?

True class here. Amazing new tech delivered in a well oiled sleek package. Love the little touches in the soundtrack, especially the filter choice when the turn disk screen appears, made it sound like it was coming out of an old commodore monitor!

Codewise this should have won for sure!
But it lacked more colors to win. I guess this has to do with your new VIC-trickeries, but grey/blue isn´t too attractive! ;)
Music is more than splendid!
I see why this has not won, but it still should have won i think.

I just watched this once again and I truly think this is one of the best demos of 2016. On all platforms. Same goes for the exquisite soundtrack. This thing needs to be showered in Meteoriks.

I'm not fond of long slow-pacing C64 demos. But this one is...
Perfect pacing for such an atmosphere. The show is so stylish and coherent (fx, gfx, music). All done by a guy alone!? My Number 1 choice for 2016 - and a late missing thumb.
rulez added on the 2017-03-11 09:52:20 by Overflow Overflow

"lft (code, music , graphics, loader)" - and A DISK COVER PRINT OUT?
You had my thumb after 20 seconds. And still you kept on coding, designing and composing , ... how can you...

Wait, NOW I KNOW: I found this secret video where you can see ALL THE LFTs involved in creating the demo, esp. the rain related scenes. Watch the first few seconds closely!
