This is, 100% perfectly executed, exactly the demo that everyone wanted to make from the 80ies until the mid 90ies. It's wonderfully cheesy, very stylish and yet totally pointless. I love it!

100% perfectly executed

Especially the bit where a rotozoomer running at 480x270 can't keep straight 60 fps on 3.2ghz - and that's probably the fastest running part.

Also pressing space does nothing (= not megademo) and the "O" is one "pixel" lower than the rest of the text.

@gargaj: you are so right.. should have been two pixels.. well, let's hope for a final.

Well why not!
But too fast. Add that press space function pls

Nice, works really great on my iMac27" with "wine";
I will test it with my Retro-PC soon. (PII-233/DX61)

How to run it please?
I only have "megademo" voice and music but only full white screen :(

Win 10
I5 2500k
GTX 980ti

Unless your "retro" PC supports semi-recent versions of OpenGL and runs a supported version of Windows, don't bother.

And the M is a bit lower, and the O is a bit lower than the M.
Is it softrendered? I mean, it could in that resolution. I like a lot of the graphics and the scenes. Some retro-future feeling. The rotozoomer was smooth on me.
Is this supposed to run on oldschool PC? I'll try on something a bit older maybe.

It does not run on PII-233/WIN98SE/DX61?, but it looks like it could be run on 68K? a PII-233 is lightyears faster than that :) just kidding :)
btw. gfx/pixelart and lights are really awesome!
btw. what are the "low-end" specs for this?
drzeissler: you'll need a dualcore processor for raytracing the frames (everything is raytraced) and an opengl driver for blitting the image to the screen.

thx, my fastet system beside the 27" imac is a P4/1,4Ghz.
Pandafox: this indicates an opengl error. i can get you a version without opengl but it will be horribly jittered (i use opengl for swap control).

gizmo/muhmac/bacter/jco: Had a good time watching it and it's executed well. Rulez!

Gargaj: Oh for fuck's sake! Bitching around technical things concerning a mostly fun demo is really lame.

not too long and quite enjoyable to me, love the vintage-ish approach and the resulting music medley.
thumb up for me :)

Fun medley, although either I didn't get all references or you ran out of ideas at some point. Probably the former. :D

Gargaj :) Actually I don't like it either, but you should at least get a decent PC for running demos, you know demoscene PC coders never optimize... 3.2 GHz?? runs 100+ FPS here, problem fixed ;)

Music is not cheesy enough, effects are trying to be pixeled but not doing them the same way, most scenes are not related to the typical megademo parts, etc. It's sort of how you'd make some starts in OpenGL back when and unimaginatively replicate sort-of the effects with the blitter and textures. Lame.

So the humor misses. But the lamery is a finished demo with no artifacts, and I presume it has pixeled graphics by Gizmo, which is rare enough these days. So that takes it north of sucks for me.

There should be more megademos! But they just fall flat on PC.
added on the 2017-07-13 15:26:54 by Photon Photon
This is what is missing now. We need more oldschool megademos on PC!

here is the tracklist (missing bacters track)
actually, all of those are "Combination" presets of a Korg M3 Extended, plus randomly hitting its pads. *running away screaming "shame! shame!"*


but hey, it was at least 30min of intense "creative" effort!

perfect showcase of what the scene would be like if we hadn't evolved the concept of what a demo is during the past 25 years or so :)
