A BASIC fader on Amiga? That alone deserves a thumb up! The rest isn't bad, either :)

Excellent demo! Fantastic effects, lovely graphics and two killer tunes by Jogeir and Serpent. Best in the compo, no doubt!

I really love how Offence managed to carry the C64 Style and vibe over to the Amiga. The tune by Jogeir is really great as well!

Very fluid demo with fresh ideas, well designed and beautiful Jogeir Liljedahlish soundtrack. Yeah, and 2nd thumb up for amazing oscilloscope-head image and great transformation into fx!
rulez added on the 2020-04-13 12:30:46 by mborik mborik
Loads of really good stuff in here!
The overall design (and sountrack) is a bit too much 1992 for me, though. I'd rank it 2nd in the compo. :)

Just a heads up to avoid confusion, since pouet doesn't seem to let you add credits for people who didn't sign up to pouet (questionable design IMO). Main music was made by Jogeir/M.O.N, and the end theme by Serpent/Desire.

Thanks for all the kind words, folks :)

rulez added on the 2020-04-13 18:05:23 by Blast! Blast!
Great demo. I've always loved the C64 tradition of wiping away the start screen in a creative way. Now you did it on Amiga, and you did it with style! And kept that style throughout the demo.

Jogeir doing new demo music is amazing in itself. Also, the second piece of music has some distinct Project X Old Timer vibes. :)
rulez added on the 2020-04-13 18:07:51 by Blueberry Blueberry
Jogeir is amazing!

Correct, those Thesmophoria samples worked nicely with the scopes so used them.
added on the 2020-04-13 18:26:09 by Serpent Serpent
Awesome demo! So nice to see Offence win a party in 2020, oldskool beating the more newskool demos by loaderror and drareg. Must say I think it's especially interresting it look so much like Andromeda D.O.S since Offence lost many members to Andromeda back in 1991, the year before Andromeda D.O.S. was released. :)

Great to see famous names like Jogeir and famous coders like Perplex (coder of the legendary amiga diskmag R.A.W.) still releasing stuff in 2020! And the fact that parts of this was done in pascal with TRSE is just fantastic, since I code pascal every day (for work) ! :)

I knew it would be winner right after the end of amiga demos show :) Just look now the gap in votes!

From the very beginning till the end it is obvious the authors keep their C64 traditions and habits in every detail, and however it does not LOOK as a 'technical achievement', still it's more awesome than any other amiga demo in the compo.

Yeah it‘s oldschoolish. Yeah it has Jogeir music.
But on the technical side I fail to see how this is an impressive demo. Not my number one from the compo.

Overall i like it. Beginning is a little bit boring, as well as the end-part. But the middle-part with these great looking twisters and pics, make me like it. Therefore thumbs up from me.

Congratulations for winning the compo.

In case you use AllocMem to reserve the big chunks of ram... Would it be possible that you reserved "fast memory" using MEMF_ANY flag instead of MEMF_FAST? Exec will try to reserve FAST mem if it's available and if can't find any it will try to reserve CHIP. If you are using an A500 with 1MB chipmem or A500+ with 2MB of chipmem this could be quite useful to run your beautiful demo.

A final version that supports amigas with just chip memory would be great

The credits part with the faces is one of my favorite effects ever. Solid in many other ways too, and the music grooves.

Smooth work.
The initial wire effect feels out of place, though. Too simple and raw.

outstanding. soundtrack catches me directly at the beginning. gfx sooo good, that the spiral effect even seemed inappropiate. many cool effects. top scrollers and a cute greetings crossword. very much soul pleasing =)

My TOP3 from the whole CoronaVison2020 online party. Great gfx/design and code (love those twisters, credits and oscilloscope), nostaligic tunes (both great, but this Fullmoon \o/). It has a very high re-watch factor. And the AmigaDOS/BASIC (c64) fader was just overwhelming as an idea and very well executed - double thumb just for it!

the comments I am reading here are absolutely baffling - how can something that mainly is on the same technical level as 1990 (if even) be regarded as nearly being like the second coming of christ?
so a bunch of sorry ass line effects, scrollers, twisters etc. as seen a hundred times in the last 30 years on the same platform is "amazing, superb"? seriously?

it's like the latest releases by Lemon, Deadliners, TBL, etc. had never happened.

Had some really nice graphics and the music wasn't too bad either, but other than that it felt extremely weak. Not something I'd rewatch any time soon

It very much felt like a C64 Offence demo but ported to the Amiga. It's not a poor piece of work at all but also doesn't bring much new to the table.

This is how to make oldschool impressive these days. Beautiful pixels. Nicely crafted effects. Scene with astronaut and twister just lovely. Since watching this demo put me into a pleasant nostalgic mood after my work I totally don't f'kng care about its "technical" side. Will burn it into my floppies and show it to my kids and grandkids until my Amiga boots up.

And it's so great to hear Jogeir in 2020 =)

rulez added on the 2020-05-05 10:30:39 by magic magic
Echoing britelite; kinda mediocre in every way, like something from prior to Hardwired, when barely anyone did anything well paced or consistently designed. Something is terribly when when I have to actually agree with spike of all people... very surprised to see this win.
added on the 2020-05-05 10:44:34 by noby noby
Yeah, what others said, it's kinda slow paced like a C64 demo on A500, guess those times belong to the past for good. Also the downconverted pictures is not something, I'm a big fan of.
added on the 2020-05-05 11:04:35 by teo teo
Not a great demo, but then it wasn't a particularly great Amiga compo all round... nothing here that made me think "I wonder how they did that?"
added on the 2020-05-05 11:09:49 by DanLemon DanLemon
Very good and quite original.
The music is excellent.
rulez added on the 2020-05-10 15:21:03 by Aghnar Aghnar
What noby said. The BASIC fader (or, well, AmigaDOS…) is nice, and then it makes a huge buildup… into some B/W lines and bouncing 2D balls? I like the faces effect, too, but the rest is kinda meh.
added on the 2020-05-12 12:41:01 by Sesse Sesse
It's not bad but has some parts with black backgrounds, dated looking effects and awful colours which might have looked cool in 1989. The rest is not overly exciting either.

Nice prod !

Crash on real Amiga 500 with ACA500plus expansion a few seconds after the beginning of the AmigaDOS fader.

ACA500plus must be completely disabled (= switched into debrick mode with a long press on the DISMO button of the expansion) to run this demo properly.

Thanks for the 90s trip guys! Really cool stuff right there! :)
rulez added on the 2022-05-14 22:05:23 by Defiance Defiance
Contrary to what I wrote previously, this demo works fine with ACA500plus expansion enabled. iComp support helped me.

An easy method to launch the demo via the standard A500 profiles (accessible through F3 key in ACA500plus menu) :
- Select : Standard A500 KS 1.3 (or 1.2) + 0.5M/0.5M
- AND Raise CPU set to 14 MHz
