Really good and nice platform surprise. To be honest I don't like all palettes. But kicks ass anyway.

Very nice modeling and fitting soundtrack. Nice one!

Nature 2.0 vs. Sunflower at the beginning, then just random effects & overlays. Bummer.

The butterfly scene was ace though. :)

Hey! Nice arthropods!

A pity that they are mostly posing statically (though with a bit of movement). I like the colors.

The music is quite good.

Overall a pretty good show.

Some very pretty scenes and rendering by PS2 standards! It is just random effects with overlays of course, but when executed properly the there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. This is kinda how a PS2 demo should be maybe even. Loved the music too. And thanks for the greetings <3

although overall design was bland and has too sleepy track for me, it deserves instant platform thumb.

Wpadłem w szok, że ktoś coś napisał na PS2. Genialne!

Some nice effects.

Suberb. It would have been even better without the glitchy stuff.

Great stuff! I especially loved the glitch-part :)

Instant platform thumb! It's been a while since the last time we got a PS2 demo, which wasn't an effect dump, and had some actual models. One ♥ Love!

@tomaes - Sunflower ... Man, that takes me back. Best soundtrack ever. Pulse days were THE days.

@Rork - To zrob! Jeszcze nic straconego.

holy shit, how come I hadn't voted for this? When I saw this I grabbed my brain and put it down on the desk. Wicked

This mostly looks like an AGA demo (except for not being lowres with 4*4 effects). Way to go to push the PS2 Hw and apply kickass visual design/direction. For a few interactive 3D examples on what to surpass or at the very least achieve, check out the Windmill and the Tree in the Courtyard scenes in the game Ico, and some of the locations in the game Black.

Btw, there's no music running via ps2link.

very lovely demo on ps2 hardware, great effects and some beautiful scenes!
rulez added on the 2018-03-13 19:52:46 by keito keito
Huh it's been an year already. Pretty late for that but I would like to thank everyone for comments and feedback :)

@hitchhikr: Sorry for the delayed response. I've just downloaded demo from scene.org and everything is working fine for me (with music). Which version of ps2link and which pc-side loader do you use? I've tested it with ps2link v1.46 and ps2client. If I remember correctly I've had some problems with ps2link v1.2.

Agree. Very Sunflower/Pulse like of a demo. I like it very much

Design reminds me a lot of good old games.
Great demo for the rare platform.

Doesn't work here. Slim SCPH-79003, FreeMcBoot, tried from flash and from memory card. Black screen.

@kempy: Unfortunately this build works only with ps2link v1.46. I'll release fixed version next month.

I keep fingers crossed. If you need a USB / FMCB version test, please let me know.

@kempy: Hey, I've just updated binary.

It's here: http://www.mi-ku.net/demo_altair_aqua_updated.zip

However I've tested it only via USB and ps2link so other test are appreciated. Please let me know if it works for you.

Now runs perfectly. Thanks!

Where's my thumb??? Pwnage on so many levels and definitely my favorite PS2 demo.

Still awesome. The refractive bubbles are my absolute favourite.

Sorry for not answering earlier, i forgot.
I tried with the updated version but still no sound.

I'm using ps2link 1.51.
