this demo is so silly, i could almost thumb it up :) nice work on graphics and character animation. but i thought there was a rule that french people aren't allowed to speak english? ;) on the other hand, the lousy speech fits the concept quite well, so i guess it's ok like that :)

Please note that the current version is the Party Release. A size optimized and without synch problems will soon be available. If you exprience this synch problem, make sure you run the demo in 16bits color depth.

Stay tuned !

har har :) starts out like a parody of orion's old kitschtravagantic 3d flythrough epics like nightfall or purple, ends up completely warm&fuzzy. I enjoyed this, orion c'est les funny :)

some quibbles:
1) get a dictionary guys - "amour is pneu" isn't exactly english, and it's annoying for those who don't read french
2) at 17 megs, you could make this a prerendered anim as mpeg4... :/

Very big demo (16mb is quite something for 64k isdn), but excellent looking scenes and not any speed problems on my pIII-450. For sure a winner!

this is a completely fucked up story that finally makes senses in a very insane way ...

as saffron stated it's kinda making fun of the previous orion big 3d demos.
and the french (swiss french speaking actually) accent of sear gives a very special touch to the demo with those so senseless texts =)
yeah keep it frenglish, anybody can understand what they say with the graphics..

keep on being insane dudes.. if it wasn't that insane i would probably hate such senseless 3d scenes put together ..

and ++ for the great modeling work .. finally one of those rare 3d demos that i like ..

"amour is pneu" isn't exactly english, and it's annoying for those who don't read french

Neither were any other "amour is ..." statements, and I *think* that was deliberatly done ;)

Brilliant. It's slick, sick and has a longer appeal than Glon 243 for instance. The size is a bit of a pickle, but that's where ample internet connections save the day.

More of this.

i wish it was longer, and a liiittle more 2d effects.. then it could easily have been one of my favourites. as for now i just like it.
and i promise that we wont party at the same time as buenzli next time.. (imma trsac-orga).

the concept 'le peage des gens heureux' (happy guys in peage) is now done ! thank you Danube & Splif! (and the others of course)
i hear this crazy idea last year at Vip3 party for the first time.

i love this 'betonneuse' (in east of France, we call this machine 'betonniere'). modeling and textures roxx!

'mise en scene' (photography of scenes) is good, suspense is here

Deemage : a demo is realtime calculated exe file, dont care about size or style.
Shiva : i own GeF4 ti4200 128 and all runs perfectly... and in 1024x768x32bits :-)

ok, watching it now with the retail version ;)

Whoa. That saved my day. I never thought Frenchs trying to speak English could actually sound CUTE :)

Nice modelling job (though a bit too low-poly perhaps ;) and great Storytelling. And i just love this really senseless kind of humour ;)

Ok, I'll show it to Yoda later who spent >30h on french motorways in the last days, let's hope I'll survive.
rulez added on the 2002-08-21 16:17:56 by kb_ kb_
kb_ you're correct, i didn't try the dxdbg version during the party... I tried this to desperately find a workaround for some shitty weird bug on ATI boards... and i didn't remove it :) it will be removed in the final version.

As we already knew, "Orion is connard".
Now we know that "Amour is péage".

Btw, maybe people complaining about the fact that the demo is not 100% english didn't understand very well the spirit of it.

Well well, qu'est-ce qui bouge le cul des Andalouses ? C'est L'AMOUR.
rulez added on the 2002-08-28 01:07:56 by alexkidd alexkidd
Cute, less disturbing than Easter Egg at least :). English version coming out anytime soon? (I guess PÉAGE means tollbooth or something like that?) Hmm, random french humor. :)

This demo rox. modeling, GFX, sound, and betonneuse ... :)
