Converting demos into 64kb as good as possible ?

check this one out for a good example ;-)


hihi... What do you think.. A good thing or....... ?

Good if done once, lame if repeated.

For convert every demo to a 64k
then convert every 64k into to a 4k intro
then convert every 4k intro into a 256byte demo
then convert every 256byte demo into an 1 byte demo :$00

and then you actually proved that demos are redundant!

it's boring, it lacks creativity imho. technically it can be impressive but still..

to use aln's words 'why not convert 64k to bloatdemos?' :D
do what the fuck you want.
does this include a hardcore porn version of the vip2 demo?

converting 256byte to demos is better.. more space for textures, music etc etc..

Conversions suck! It's the same prod. Only less size, which doesn't even matter if it's the same prod.

Shifter: Whar are you sick dutch fucks planing? I'm interested. ;)

For the topic:
We had conversion with increase of size, we had conversions with a loss of size, we had conversons to other plattforms (both hardware and software),...
Some were pretty interesting, some were ok, some were lame. Some people had the glorious idea: Innovate, don't immitate!
It´s like Hollywood w/ their remakes of perfectly good movies.

It's all about code so any improvements are precious. Same sick as creating intros, so… Please, be sick ^^.

Maybe my opinion is a bit biased here, but anyway... I'd say that this type of conversions can be a good idea, as long as we don't make abuse of this resource.

I mean, if someone is man enough to make a full remake (music included) of fr-025 in 64k, why not? Of course, this is something to be done once or twice, not for every single production around, or we'd spoil the fun.

some demos are a lot harder to do in 64k than others (e.g. how generatedish or hardcoded the original looks), so i guess it depends on what gets converted.

e.g. if anyone gets come clean in 64k (with the graphics and music more or less intact), i'd take my hat off to them. =)

btw, why is the spanish scene doing it so much right now?

expensive hard disks and a new spanish fee over them make disk space an invaluable good!!
If you have to re-use a whole demo concept, at least try to improve it, simply making a copy (which won't be perfect anyway) have no real interest beside pleasing your own little egos.

I don't care if you can make a copy of fr25, i only care if you can make fr25 in the first place. Copying is undoubtfully easier than creating something that is even partially original.

The code must serves the idea, not the contrary.

true, i'd much rather you just keep these remakes for your own testing purposes then use the technology to make something new with it.

I think it's a good thing, but it's a lot better if you can improve the original.

now that I remember, somebody told me demoscene was about pushing the limits...
What about converting gamers and lamers to sceners ?
