First demo from BoaH x') We know it is short, we know it is a common 3d crappy demo, but, we enjoyed doing it, and that is... x')

As always, criticism first:
- the train scene was a bit too long
- next time use mipmaps... ah, no, what the hell, that may be the secret of your successfull avoidance of the "hw accelerated" look, so just go on as you wish.

Apart from that: Whow.
rulez added on the 2002-11-04 22:26:21 by kb_ kb_
Great music, great scenes, synchro, composition, 2D, 3D, effects and design. And it's a first production!!!!

Congratulations boah X)

Awesome. Really moving demo with subtle design > effects parts. Keyed to the haunting music track superbly. Looks like a group to be worth watching.

So.. this means.. demoscene isnt dead??!

But that demo sure roxx. Nice Visuals, sadly no real music, but still very nice! :D

Some pretty good 2D graphics, but as a demo it just didn't do anything for me. The music is to blame, probably.

I liked the whole package... the music + anim + 3d + 2d work very well together. that grainy look of the textures does fit too.

(it worked under wine even with win98's dlls)

interesting demo. very good job on the textures and 3d modelling i assume. i also liked the unfiltered textures, i just hate it when it looks like one blured blob of paint :)

downsides: i wish it had a proper musical track and it wasn't that short.
added on the 2002-11-04 23:47:41 by robotriot robotriot
Very nice demo with good looking scenes and not any speed issue. Only the sound could be more consistent. This one shows that it's still possible to make hi-qual demos without using high end hardware.

Ruled on bigscreen, although some parts were a bit large IMHO.

I really love the gfx interaction and the synchronisation. The grim and gritty atmosphere is also incredibly gripping, but sadly it all comes to an end a little too soon.

nice... but please, do a patch which adds the mipmaps...
rulez added on the 2002-11-05 01:36:46 by spengler spengler
sorry, but while making the demo we discussed it and decided not to use mipmapping.. just a visual issue, as kb pointed

well, yes! this is the kind of demo we all ever love, great grapchics & design (we're talking about one of the greats on the spanish scene: Jull) 2d layers perfectly smooth, texturing+modelling, neat! . great code: interface, love the rising level of petroleum on the train wagon, and great sincronization. well music soooo PRO :Armidas high quality ambience rulez!.
Great prod, but the best point on this prod is the ORIGINALLITY, it's not a 3dMovie player3d story, you can make idea/concept demos without massive 3d character studio,posers...etc. simply great!

A demo with seed is nice indeed. The group's name reminds me of bofh tho', sounds quite funny for a nice prod like this. The 2D art was well mixed with 3D scenes and the soundtrack was also nice, but quite weird. Not much effects here, but I guess the production didn't need 'em so bad.

A bit short on effects but excellent design, music/gfx/code all fit together tightly. A must download. As kb_ stated, mipmapping was disabled most likely by intention and I think it worked in my case. :-)

I usually hate these 3d scene flyby -demos, but this one had some great atmosphere and not-too-numedia-design. The only problem I have with it is the length - why do all the demos have to be so damn short these days?

Obviously it is not an effects demo™, and it's boring if you don't understand (or don't want to understand) the concept, of course. If you known how to do with same concept and theme a less boring demo, with more effects, please, do it!, we will love to view it :)

Wow, a hidden gem I hadn't seen before.
Too bad there were no more prods from them :/

Ah, I remember this. Nice-ish visuals for back then, but I still mainly like the 2d parts. Music is solid but a tad meandering. What really kills is for me though it the twitchiness, all of the movement in the latter half is way too fast.

Damn, I had forgotten how good this was. How come there was never anything more from BoaH?

Strange bizarre stuff.

I've always loved this
Very cool, feels like this demo manages to not care how "demos are supposed to be" and does its own thing entirely, and it works.
