Okay, so it blew up a couple of cheap monitors back then, but it was a very nice product. =)

as far as I remember, XTAL was really pleseant, the only weak point was the fact that in fact it featured few fx that were mixed together, but the music, textures and colors are pretty good

I was a little disappointed at first when I saw this because it didn't feature any ordinary 3d, which was really jmagic's hoot - but it grows on you.

hellfire: nice try, but demo should be 50hz, not 70hz :)

elektro music, "complex" word with some rotating rays behind, "complex" turns colorfull
"xtal" title word
radial mappings, rotating
a face picture
great bass and rhythm of the music start
another tunnel with triangle form, rotating, overlayed on some kind of clouds
more mappings overlayed, wobbly effect,
an explosive light
then colorfull light light sprites, flying in a cowskin textured, triangle tunnel
the group name, the title, the authors

Another stunning soundtrack - reminded me of AFX stuff.
Really good ambient demo too.

kind of mish-mashy, but enjoyable. i like hoe the effects are laid on top of each other and their transitioning inbetween. in any case the music is the highlite for me here, extraordinary stuff in context of the demoscene for 1995. rules!

one of those 1995 demos which are good but way toooooooooooooooooooooooo lengthy

really well elaborated tracker ambient music for 1995.
i liked it a lot back then.

Time has been very kind to this demo. Effects are unremarkable and limited for the filesize for the time but the design and music are timelessly appealing.

Saying that I love this is not enough.

dat trip! :3

btw, if your monitor can't handle 50hz mode, instead of disabling it completely (as described here) you can write a byte E7 to offset 0x0010C522, then demo will use timings from 800x600 56hz mode, so it will work on almost every monitor ;)

2x2 pixels hurt on PC, I was more used to watch them on Amiga, but it rocks never the less. I hate reading good sceners pass away, hopefully we all be living long enough to pay the tribute and keep watching classic prods!
