remember that one time at revision where you broke 5 world records and still didn't win the compo? :P
rulez added on the 2023-04-11 09:38:42 by psenough psenough
In many ways, this shows how far the scene has come in more ways that one. It's pure oldschool and there are still records that can be broken, but on the other hand it only came third in the competition. Absolutely loved every minute fo it even if I'm not an Amiga coder.
rulez added on the 2023-04-11 10:50:54 by Preacher Preacher
Amazing oldskool vibes from this one. Superb coding and design!

That was some brilliant idea for a Megademo. Reminded me a bit how Skarla started "Massive" some years back.

Interesting and entertaining presentation of some great effects. Perhaps an autoplay mode would have made it rank higher in the compo.

Totally insane - Raider of the lost clockcycles!
Bestest of spirits and a presentation! And if that hadn't been enough, you'd totally won me over with the Scavenger track - me being used to record Scavenger to CDs :-)

Just thought a couple of days ago "Hmm, haven't seen and heard
anthing of Leonard for a longer time?! He seems to be busy" ... and
wham... a can-you-beat-diz-shocker right in the face. An awesome
megademo (such a nice word) embedded in an appealing
contemporary concept / framework.
Though it is not a record, the dot spheres are somehow my favorite;
hope that's not considered to be ignorant. The Scavenger track in the
endpart is phenomenal!!! By the way: nice equalizer :-)
rulez added on the 2023-04-13 13:38:01 by ROG_VF ROG_VF
Technicals are great of course and the demo pretends to focus on those but the presentation is also very nice :)
rulez added on the 2023-04-13 14:47:45 by cp_ cp_
I know he was worried about this demo, and how it would go down in a competition, but Leonard has absolutely nailed it!!

So many records broken, cool design, and some amazing music! Absolute quality all the way through (the Netflix thing was a nice surprise too!)

And those vector dot balls.. WOW! They look so amazing and so fluid!

Well deserved place in the top 3 of Amiga demos at Revision <3

Although I respect the guts to do a mega-demo in 2023, it also destroys any kind of flow and consistency.
I dig the dot spheres, though.

Cynical/special-case records, "only if you accept you may compete" (c) let's go!

1. "Distortion" is ST and kinda weird for Amiga. :) Already beaten, if you have understood what you watched.
2. You beat firstie foundation demo from jan 1989. No greeting is correct (mean that) <3 but I mean there were a ton after.
3. It's possible to make your own fractals - and also color the black pixels. #ifuwant
4. Maybe 16K is true if music removed? You tried to remove it, by limiting the tracks submitted + rendering the music. (Also bobs are bobs, not plots. And also not sprites.)
5. I like this remake track with a nod to inconvex vectors. I will say nothing about 3bpl Glenz records, you and I know. Plus I was not around for those. Bandwidth is what it is and yours is not transforming. Different strokes.

Wordy, so you think I might be against any of this, but I'm not. Records are about details, Leonard will agree, but what is good is Demosceners normally dismiss "one-screener optimized effects" with extreme prejudice.

So I'm totally blown away by the response. Might this herald a future where other great coders dare release actually optimized effects? This has been greeted with a meh for the past 20+ years. Let's have a thumb if this leads to that :)

Is nice effect-wise, though I don't find the menu style very appealing.

The ending music sounds suspiciously similar to some of !Cube's C64 SID-tune "Modulation", with some aspects of "Angel Project" and "Molecules". Perhaps inspired by?
rulez added on the 2023-10-19 19:44:47 by ccr ccr
A correction to my previous comment: I've been informed that it's more like !Cube probably was inspired by Scavenger. :)

Missed this demo last year somehow. Pretty cool stuff! Maybe I’m spoilt on C64 scene but it feels very old school with the part-selection rather than being a trackmo with transitions… we can’t get away with doing that on C64 scene nowadays.

Good to see that coderp0rn is alive on Amiga, though… I just wish there was more.
A year later, I mostly get converted pics and... not much else. Original comment still applies, though.
