a great production indeed. the objects are very simple, but hey, it's only 4k! and the music simply rocks for such a size.

Nice easy and simple though you even get small glitches in music and smooth motion on speedy machines. However as mentioned by flod and robotriot, this is nice for 4KB! Try it!
people tend to forget what other 4k's show. this is definately great for this size.

most definitely a stunning 4k intro. take a look at the shadow effects and - this impresses me most of all - the sound. they used a buzz-like engine to calculate the sound instead of using samples...respect to you dresden force people!

As Yoda and me (in our function as demo compo organizers of the Dialogos) tested this on the Compo PC (with the Freestyle guys standing behind us), the only thing we gould get out was "How..." ... and the answer from them was "Honestly, we don't know ourselves".

I think, this describes it best.

störfall was definitely the 4k intro of the year, and I think it's quite sad that it doesn't seem to get the attention it deserves. this one seriously kicks ass. (some people i showed it even thought it was a 64kb intro!)

yep, as ryg said: it really kicks ass! thumbs up

yeah, as said, this fantastic, so much in 4kb.. even a softsynth playing great music..

(and since it's a windows intro, it's not as hard to run as trying to watch older dos 4k's today)

Quite cool. At first I was a pit picky about calling it a 4k in the same sense as a DOS 4K (seeing it's backed by a bunch of libs) but it's still one hell of an effort.

Two thumbs up! (I have only two hands)

perfect :)

how the hell did you make those drum sounds?
rulez added on the 2001-08-12 15:54:33 by ld0d ld0d
Quite amazing, have to admit. "Industry" demos / intros seem to really be the thing now. I didn't really get what those machines are doing in this one. :-> The color scheme is a bit dull but that's forgivable.

very good for only 4kb !!!
a full 3d scene with perpetual movement
and a TRUE music in it !!!

yes. the music. indeed.

Music is buggy here, but you can hear it.

Truly a wonder - yes, the 'honestly we don't know either' works (:
Yeah, best 4k in 2000, definately. Really impressive music and 3d scenes.

Just watched it again. It was rule in 2000 and it is still good over 3 years later. But the difference of the computing power could be seen a bit (compare with Mojo Dreams).

Only thing that could have made this better would have been some synching of the movements to the tune.

This is THE 4k for sure. I remember the first time I saw it. Very enjoyed the trax (mindflower). Then I discovered the scene. A hilarious thing, but so well rendered, and synched:).
I'm not sure but probably the first time I see such animated robots into an intro. Big big thumb.

not a bad prod..
just didn't like distort bass and uber-freq. hat.. lots of the same visuals.. innovate as they are, would have been more appealing with variation.
ok but not really for me.

more attention needed! "ahead of its time" doesn't begin to describe this. CDC!
parapete told me to thumb this up without watching it, because he's corrupt and dishonest. But I watched it and now I'm thumbing it up of my own accord.

one of my favourite 4ks. the overall styling and the design idea are truly superior.

An entirely new level of complexity compared to what was seen in 4ks at the time. And quite well presented as well. Where has my thumb been all these years? :)

rulez added on the 2012-01-03 21:45:08 by 4mat 4mat
Simple, but uses the best parts of its simplicity to its advantage (scene composition colors, positioning, flat shading). I would've kept the lighting a bit more flat too, but whatever. The music also relies on the same principles as the visuals, which is something I really appreciate. The distortion on the drums works so well.

Just to think that this was done in 4k _before_ Crinkler was available is nuts for me, music is quite awesome for that size as well.

Now if only my 64Bit Win7 would actually run a .com file ^^
rulez added on the 2014-06-24 22:40:26 by mog mog
Stoerfall ost was one of the first 4ks I'd seen, and it was one to remember. A well-directed scene was already good to have, but that soundtrack transcended the filesize and sealed the deal. As noby pointed out above, the distortion on drums is just perfect.
rulez added on the 2017-04-28 18:36:45 by moozooh moozooh
this was pretty good at the time. feels a bit outdated nowdays, but still nice.

Pretty hilarious how the snare in one of the first windows 4k intros is better than in 90% of 4ks today :D

This still stands up honestly.
added on the 2017-05-08 00:55:20 by noby noby
still one of the best 4k tunes.
How did I not know about this?? Honestly one of the best 4k soundtracks I've heard, and it's from 20 years ago...

Pioneer of many techniques that are used by most 4Kb intros today. That music alone was amazing back then.
