Interesting firstie with a great tune. You got me smiling with the tree part.

The atmosphere is strong in this demo ;) Great zik and wonderful HAM graphics. There's some really neat blitter workings in this demo.

It is quite different from other demos. Colorful effects (it seems to be HAM6), nice graphics (they look like watercolors) and very good calm music. However, I'm not very fond of those logos up and down all the time but this is a minor issue.

Overall, nice prod.

Please ignore the party version. The music has a severe bug in it. Here's an 99% version: https://lerppu.net/hackers-demoja/hackers-forest_500.adf - Music has been fixed and there's general polish and less bugs. Real final might come later. Maybe.
Fresh look, great music. Taken by surprise by the zooming woods FX, nice!

Pacing could be better at times and you may want to fix the sprite bugs for the final version, but other than this is very nice. Interesting and unusual effects accompanied by good music.

First, gave me an impression as a scanned, with unfinished logos slide show. But with time it occurred to be a nice demo with some good-looking HAM routines.
Still, some gfx supposedly look better on an CRT then on the LCD, I suppose?

The watercolor paintings certainly gave kind of a warm fuzzy feeling, and made the demo stand out. Good one!

unique style! Seems there is a HAM revolution afoot on A500. The trees were very cool and fringeless HAM scrolling is the next "opening the border" effect :)

My favorite from the demo compo. It was nice meeting you at the party Ash.

It seems to be your first 68000 demo? Very good! Keep 'em coming :)

Demo seems only to work with Fast mem. Not working on A600 with 2 MB chip config. Can that be fixed?

Tried on the a600 with 2mb chip ram, said not enough ram. Tried on the 1200 with tf12600 and crashed on startup.

Quite soothing and original. Nice tune, not so karstenish :P

Fresh and unscrupulous, cool music, and the trees scene must be one of my favourites of the entire party!
I attempted a fix by simply removing the fastmem attribute and repacking.
There are some other oddities, like reproducibly crashing on my A500 when a disk is removed while the demo is running, but nothing to distract from its coolness :-)

The Forest 500 demo is somewhere near the end of the video.

Very atmospheric and different production with decent and fitting tune.
I like the watercolorish look, the glowing cube, but above all the
endpart with the foggy forest and the flying trunks plus scroller. Really,
really nice.

Hi! Final final is definitely incoming. We are still having problems with LSP playing some weird noise in the beginning, and also some reports about wrong playback still happening during part transitions. Thanks Bifat for fixing the fast mem flags! AGA-compatible version is most likely not happening as we are still bitter that we only got it instead of the AAA.. And likewise Wal.

Please don't watch the party recording as it has the music bug. :)
Really solid work.

I really enjoyed this demo, an unsusual atmosphere and the forest section is really neat! ❤️

Checked the 99% version to get the right™ sound and boy... This soundtrack by van damme is BEAUTIFUL!

Quite nice but too many visual bugs (like the sprites DMA not being turned off one), also there's an audio bug at the beginning (like the audio pointers not being set early enough and paula's playing garbage).
