Amazing production in all departments. If I had walked in mid-demo without knowing what it was, I’d have assumed AGA and 030. Looks great, sounds great - both on the bigscreen and on my 1084. (Thanks for the disk!)

Same as grip but it surely is OCS. Music isn't maybe my cup of completely but well done and fits. Have to watch more times to see if there's some inner meanings behind some moments.

It looks like the adf isnt done properly , taking in account the 80+ tracks this demo is using..

What a great production! Worth waiting for. Excellent (hires) graphics, pumping music, fabulous design, much better pacing than e.g. Hologon, and very clever combination of move-table effects with grading bitmaps -- and of course, excellent use of the Amiga hardware capabilities (sprites on the hires gfx, turning the audio filter on/off, copper tricks including dynamic hires etc.). The new voxel landscape is fantastic.

Great stuff before Disk error track 80 atleast. Probably would anyway need an .ipf/.hfe image because i don't think standard adf supports >80 trax

Top-grade modern OCS demo! Too bad I am a few kilometers away from my A500 and I used an emulator to see just a part of this amazing show.

And, yes, that ADF image seems to be defective... But was that on purpose, you tricky cybernetic creatures?

If it's just for copy protection, maybe a custom sector format would better idea than just stuffing more tracks to a disk :)

The disk image dated today is incomplete and will freeze in an emulator (and very likely in an Amiga). I chalked up the freeze to emulation, but apparently it requires cracking to be preserved.

I'm nice, unlike you. I'm so competent that I know copy-protected Amiga demos are unheard of, unlike you who by inverted logic claim it should be assumed from just being given a disk. It's more common to have demos working on a real Amiga glitch in emu, such as when I tested it. I've already asked to remove the download.

Photon sharing fuckings to 99% of modern demos that for common folks are pretty enjoyable and highlighting here he’s nice is a fucking laughter. Speaking so EON still wins. Back to this prod. I don’t know. Tech is definitively there, but we know bifat’s capabilities already. Nerdy ideas like snail swapping prods and copy protection are enjoyable to few and totally non-important and quickly forgotten to most. Fact is this prod doesn’t work in the environment most people watch amiga demos outside YT should be considered. There are many new interesting effects put randomly here, i miss coherent design that glues them together and I’m personally bored to see TEK signature reflections on objects in yet another prod. It’s Ok, i just expected more perhaps..

Now about the drama, this demo belongs to TEK, they spread it the way they want, and I'm happy to have to wait. The longing is part of the experience, just like it used to be, and I must say I like TEK's breaking unspoken rules and expectations.

However, it could be IPF'd.

Hey, it could also be sold or licensed as commercial software! ;]

Yet again an A500 masterpiece from TEK featuring awesomeness in all departments. Hope there will be more groups trying to push the boundaries of the A500 like this in the future.

And about the spreading of the release… The demo is out there and if you know someone who’s got a copy of it on disk it can easily be copied. Just start the demo and follow the instructions. It can be argued that this might not be the most effective way to spread a release in public, but spread in public it is :)

A resounding YES to funky disk formats and protections on demos - a sadly waning craft and - even better - deliciously futile, with the added bonus of giving something for old school crackers to get their teeth into.

On the demo itself - <3 <3 <3

A fucking great demo, but why the hell do you exclude all emulator users? We have to watch that glitchy live video instead, which really sucks. You cannot convince people to buy the original software. That tried many other people before. I don't understand that strange concept.

Got my disk to day. Teo brought it over from Gerp. Thanks again buddy.

What a great demo. And what treat it is to pop the disk into an Amiga and have the demo load. Needless to say that i would be raving if this whole concept really goes as far as someone providing a cracked ADF.

The demo itself is awesome. Although i have the strong feeling i have seen some of the effects before. Nero's graphics are once again astonishing. The music ties everything nicely together.

Mm, you tricked me there. You made sure I got a disk on the party and you didn't say or indicate on the disk that it was different from e.g. Superspreader or Hologon.

I waited a few days for you to get home and upload and record, and then I tried and failed to what I thought was an emu glitch, so I uploaded it here. That was the wrong move. This is not a dedicated preservation site, and now scene.org is hosting a different file, also not working, which is as strange as this whole affair.

Weekend approaches, I'll have a look. My first guess from this was no cracking needed and extend adf by 1 track.
added on the 2022-04-08 01:05:17 by Photon Photon
We didn't trick anybody into uploading anything anywhere untested.
We would have uploaded it ourselves, if we have had the intention to.
Have you received my mail? I outlined more options there.
added on the 2022-04-08 01:11:29 by bifat bifat
@bifat a little notification when the demo started would have been at his place imho.. (like in the old days when demos started with “this demo cant be sold by PD companies”) only now than ofcoz about the amount of tracks and it cant be copied to a working adf in a standard way.. anno domini 2022 u knew people would try to make an ADF for digital download so a notification would have helped alot to overcome what now happened here at pouet.. (just my 2 cents..)
added on the 2022-04-08 06:31:00 by magic magic
If you don’t have an Amiga, maybe a friend does? If your floppy drive is broken, maybe someone at an upcoming demo party has a working one in their Amiga? Is there an Amiga/retro computer user group in your area that you haven’t joined for some reason? There are many ways to see this demo that doesn’t involve ADF files. I’ll be at Syntax Society’s easter party in a week and Gubbdata later this summer. Let’s watch it together! And some more demos after that, and maybe share a beverage and then some more demos.

A single Amiga demo may perhaps not be worth a long journey, but friendship is. What a nice sentiment.

It works from external drives and almost certainly from Gotek. If Gotek is worth its money, it should be possible that the demo can copy itself from floppy to Gotek or the other way round.
added on the 2022-04-08 11:43:09 by bifat bifat
@bifat i copied with your copy programme from floppy to gotek but the demo than crashes booting from gotek after 2/3 of the demo. (track 80 i presume is the cause)
added on the 2022-04-08 12:23:12 by magic magic
Gotek is not just an ADF player. You can have all sorts of formats on them. Sorry for I can't give support, I've ditched my Gotek in 2017 or so.
added on the 2022-04-08 12:28:50 by bifat bifat
Great effects but no sync, it's sad. I like the graphics like logos but not those "scan people gfx" put above the effects without any sense, like you have in 90 years demos. The musics are cool but like i've said, it's sad to not have sync with effects and music. The demo looks for me like a bit unfinished. Waiting the final prod, if there is one 😊
It should work fine with HxC internal format. Goteks can use HxC firmware.
added on the 2022-04-08 13:20:35 by Crumb Crumb
As someone who have a rather large collection of old machines, and really likes to run things on the real thing, I find it a bit annoying that I can't run this.
Since I like to test run my own stuff during development on my Amiga 500, I have swapped the internal floppy with a Gotek drive. Runs my own stuff and just about every non-Tek demo just fine.

If the reason for the special disk format is somehow related to the actual demo, ie. if it fits more data than usual on the disk, or loads quicker or whatever, then sure, no problem.
But if the reason is some stubborn "everyone should run this from a real disk just because I say so", well, then I can't really agree with that.

The demo is pretty solid, amazing how someone can achieve all this on a standard A500! But the copy protection thing, that makes the demo run only from specific floppies is a terribly wrong move imho. A final that removes all this copy protection crap would be most welcome. :)

The current ADF on the "download" link is "kaputt", according to the disk copy tool (F1). So how does one get a valid ADF of the demo, and what form is it in? An actual ADF file, or a floppy disk? I would like one, if possible, please.
added on the 2022-04-08 18:24:41 by Foebane72 Foebane72
The floppy release comes with a nice and glossy disk label. Why would you want to miss that out? Also, a demo that comes with an integrated copy program, a program to duplicate it, cannot be called to have a "copy protection", can it?

That implies a real Amiga. I don't have a real Amiga, haven't had once since 1995. Are you saying that you're denying this demo to emulator users? Not everyone can afford or has space for real hardware.

Bifat: I understand that the main point was to delay online distribution, but I'm curious if you gained much disk space? It would be interesting to take the concept further, filling the disk with long tracks or something!
added on the 2022-04-09 00:49:09 by absence absence
@Absence: We had originally employed a custom disk format, which would pack more than 1mb on disk. But after exchanging one music and experimenting on newer compression methods late in the process, the demo became much smaller, and in the last days we were constantly scraping on 80 tracks standard ADF. We came across we shouldn't limit the access just for the sake of it, but only for technical or aesthetical reasons. A late change in one transition that we deemed necessary pushed it over 901120 bytes again, which wasn't unwelcome as I like to corrupt planning in a situationist manner.

if you had actually pulled that off you might have impressed some atari folks even, as it stands we just have to giggle a bit at the apparent incompetence of amiga disk imaging tools (and their users obviously). but for real now, even if you could find a drive that'll let you write that amount of data it's very hard to believe you could find any floppies that'd be able to hold said data. so calling bullshit on that claim until you back it up :)

In parts what Foebane72 wrote. Why? First thought was: It is an April
fool, isn't it? But I am not upset or peeved and I do not need a disk
as "trophy" or an runable adf as long as a video is provided. But
please, add an official video, i.e. one in a better quality since the
great music really deserves that.
Some words about the tech details for the man in the street would
be welcome as well.

I do like the idea of an edition for collectors of real floppy disks only.
And the team here is just amazing.

But I need to ask what the ADF drama is about ?
And is it true that the digital download breaks the software emulation ?

Or maybe it is just me that I have misunderstood the whole thing here.

I can hardly imagine anything remotely as important as impressing Atari people. :-) So here's the internet release: http://www.neoscientists.org/downloads/writetranshuman

Insert disk in df0: and run executable to install 74 tracks custom format version.
Among the benefits: Loading tends to be faster (so relaxing possible timing issues), better checksums, also spares some weaker tracks next to the spindle. Would be nice if borken download links could be replaced.

The internet release works fine with UAE if you create a Custom Disk to write the demo to, and note a standard disk.
(In WinUAE: Floppy drives -> Create Custom Disk -> Save -> Insert ADF-file into DF0: and then start the emulator and start the executable Bifat provided, which will write the data to the ADF). Reboot your "Amiga" and enjoy.

Solid prod for Gerp and worked well on the bigscreen! Familiar effects return, but again with refinement. The "Comanche" part is new, and returns at the end with some control of path speed and lookaround. I think the water/mountain colored version looks the best, even though that's maybe expected and normal.

I grumble a bit at the scrub at the end of parts to extend them, but my takeaway was, yes, more dither and squinty time again, but there are some ideas here, towards e.g. coloring and styling that can be taken in new directions, which I liked a lot. The design and pacing is spot on.

Well done! And I've lauded running on real hardware for many years, so now that I got what I wished for (well, I also care a lot about preservation) I've swapped a few copies to friends. :)

Speaking of preservation, it would be nice if someone with the >80 track "party version" on floppy could read it using wwarp or something (wwarp transhuman c 0-167). Unless it contains custom tracks, the .wwp file can probably be written back to a real or emulated floppy.

About the ADF file, yes it works in UAE, but you probably won't be able to make a physical disk out of on the Amiga. I've only tried it once, and it rendered track error when I tried to run it. On the other hand you've got the real thing if you want to run it on the Amiga instead ;)

Oh... My...

You guys are nuts. Struggled a bit, since my main A500 has the Wicher500i card floppy would not write completely. Had to compress it, put it on a normal FFS floppy, and uncompress it on the A600 i had laying around which is more "vanilla", and write the floppy there, and run the demo there. Well worth it tho. Damn.

great demo! I really liked the terrain rendering and the torus effect. the palette and attention to detail is present in all the scenes, there is a lot of screens (if not all) that have graphics in front or behind the effect, which is not really common and reinforce the fact that I'm looking at a late 90ies PC demo... on a stock A500!

ho and the musics are really great! :)

last word is that I think it was a bold choice to release this potentially winning demo two weeks before Revision :D

did you do you that because you wanted to support the compo of a smaller but more Amiga centric party?

The official release version has been dumped from disk to raw on an Amiga using CAPS tools.

Track 80 is just AmigaDOS formatted and could have been on track 40 instead.

After transcoding, the resulting IPF is only half the size than the version linked above.

Fantastic! love the way there are lots of subtly transparent design layers on top of many of the effects that adds color tints and detail. The texturemapped 3d is pretty mad. Just seeing 1 texture on a500 is impressive, but "multitexturing" was never seen before this one I think. Good use of bitplane hardware to add the textures together. At least that is what I think is happening.

:D My 1440p50 captures are second to none and would soothe the dithering and present graphically the demo in the best way. For a decade now, I've refused to monetize (or become a Patreon beggar), mostly as a (very stubborn at this point...) test of how much the corporation hurts discovery by ransoming pay2win. This is because YT's success is from people uploading, without Google paying for their content.

Kick-ass demo! A heavy hitter on the big screen at the party!
The colours and design is right up my alley, and the pacing is very good. The music could have some more attitude tho, but that's mainly a personal preference.

It was also nice to meet bifat at the party!

No-go on A600+Furia020.

writetranshuman just spins as though it can't detect disk-in-drive. If I glitch the floppy by ejecting/inserting around the time it tries to seek, it will start writing and appears to write normally until finished.

Booting the disk acts like it loads in slow-motion, seeking/loading a block (or some amount that I assume must be less than a track) once every 5-10 seconds. Eventually it shows the splash screen and plays some audio, which eventually stops, then plays again after some more slow loading.

Both the writer and the demo/boot seem to seek the floppy in a similar way (by observed spin/seek pattern sound) so maybe some shared code is unhappy, just a hunch.

The live YT rulez anyway!

I like how it managed to stay ahead of the Revision releases in the Top of the Month. First time ever this happened?

I'm cancelling my a600+furia bug report above.

Switched floppy drives and the demo loads fine.

Watched the youtube video.
All things aside, this is a great demo. Style, gfx, msx, code all play together and deliver a great experience.
