Made in even less time than our earlier TG-prods. This version is about 2mb smaller than the compoversion + I might have fixed an annoying bug..
And yes, it's reeeeeally slow on anything less than an 060..
Very nice.

another excellent spaceballs demo. love the "punchball" and the greetings-part. :)

We like, we like. Spaceballs did it again, although they saw some healthy competition at this year's TG :) Also, look out for the archive (and, in time, a VCD version) at a scene.org mirror near you.

pretty nice, a couple of new effects. And made on Amiga! :)

I am the cashmachine.

There are som nice effects in this one, perhaps a little "empty" but that's ok, I guess

Roxxors! I especially loved the parts with the a.) chrome cubes and radial blur and b.) much transparent cubes and scene is inverting colours. heh. you know what I mean. ~_~

Very nice! thx slummy.

seems like DrSlem has learned his lesson when it comes to colourchoices. Neutral works best when you dont know how ;)

Still. Looks like this could be the best demo from spaceballs for years. And I still havent seen it with music.

The only reason that this comment is positive is because he lost to the eph demo and so money and fame was all mine!!

Not groundbreaking, but nice entertaining stuff. Not too slow/boring, and the music is rather kicking. We want more!
rulez added on the 2003-05-02 21:23:50 by break break
Hmm...could have been a killer because 1) good soundtrack, 2) synchro 3)some good looking effects there.

Pity that not more effort was put into the visual side of things (like a bit of design and more attention to the graphics).

Still good though.
rulez added on the 2003-05-02 21:38:39 by z5 z5
liked it a lot, although the graphics (especially texts) could have been better..

They are doing 'the thing' since 1989 and still kick some ass! :)

seems like slumrat managed to find a way not to have his visuals look like something coming out of an unknown body opening of his this time. keep it up.

load: you may think in your vanity that money and fame was all yours. I guess we'll let you make all the gfx and soundtrack by yourself the next time.

heetach: Yep. It seems as if loaderror wants to show this hybris again. Not very nice.

Well, it was fun to watch + the first demo where I've seen the crystallize effect (as it is called in Photoshop). Thumbs up for all the bald-headed sceners.

Actually, Remi (or Slummy to his non-friends ;]) now sports a nice strip of hair extending from the front to the back, about 10cms wide. See his slenpung pics from bp for more fashion advice. I have a nice shaved head, though. And thanks for all the positive words, people. We love you.

"seems like DrSlem has learned his lesson when it comes to colourchoices."

loady: where you were blame for creating the textures in Timur Lenk :)

maybe someday Spaceballs will take over EPH? :)))

have to watch this demo tonight or so to thumb it :)

great stuff
rulez added on the 2003-05-28 14:45:09 by shadez shadez
so here's my vote.
anyway, my fave demo from 2003.
never thought i would say such from a spaceballs demo after 9fingers.
rulez added on the 2003-05-31 02:23:47 by teo teo
very energetic.

This is fantastic! Some of the effects are quite exceptional, showing a lot of consideration and the music and design complement each other very well.
rulez added on the 2003-07-23 03:33:38 by Wade Wade
Yeah, awesome stuff.

Nice, nice soundtrack... one of my recent favorites. I hate not being able to run this stuff on my own system and having to watch it on a DivX, but I guess I have to if I don't have an 060. Anyway, nice work, and shows that the Amiga scene still has lots to offer. Looking forward to future prods.

Here's the soundtrack in higher quality than in the demo ;)

PC-like style demo, but very well done. Messages were very funny. :)

Nice effects, but somehow it didn't have that... something. The scenes didn't really feel connected and I didn't like the colourscheme.

Amazing effects - very interesting! Is this really 2003? Nice beat, but the music lacks a little something. Still, not enough to erase my huuuge thumb!

Wow .. exceptional code/effects, and works otherwise on the visual side too. Music .. well, nothing wrong with it, just not especially inspiring to me. But it did click together with the visual side, so yay. \:D/ Few thumbs up from me!
