I was waiting for the disco ball to start spinning and with some nice sparkle sprites on top. Other than that I love this.
The dancing girl with cool backgrounds rocks. The interference effect looks great too. You'd think it's displayed on a linked set of CRT screens in a darkened room.
The SID is fitting and makes ya wanna boogie.
It is way TOO SHORT for such groovy stuff. I wanted more.

you're completely right. the whole thing was rushed, and misses the love & care.

"show how much better a lot of effects in boogie factor could have been done"

Yet with all your macho skills you (subjectively speaking) failed to make a better demo. No cigar.

My Censor! Lovely flow, one of the top five! Part from one image, which would have needed a make-up.

The tunnel in the screen dump (YES!) is really nicely thought out codewize. Well done guys! I'll try to keep tricks like that in mind.

Deekay: Those weird clicks here and there you refer to are caused by the democode itself (same issue as in cauldron). The tune works pretty well in my player, check the the sid to get the idea. Seems like goat is one huffy bitch :)

I liked this, although it was too short! ;-) But some nice screen. I liked the 8x8 plasma in the beginning, for years I was waiting for someone to do an 8x8 plasma using this bitpattern of growing circles! Never has an 8x8 Plasma looked that good! ;-)
The dancing chick rocks, the interference is nice (how'd you do the colors short of poking into the bitmap?) but a bit too "dirty" for my taste..

Clearly wants to be the successor to Boogie Factor and succeeds in some areas (code) but falls short in others (gfx, also the tune is nice, but nothing like the legendary boogie factor tune! 8). "Good Evening, Sir. Just in time for the show" - Classic! ;-D
Oh, btw: Is it just me or do Linusses tunes sound a bit weerd on other c64s, too? A few clicks too many and some stuff sounds like it wasn't meant to sound that way... Maybe we should get him onto a real c64 and away from goattracker? ;-)

I like it! Supersmooth dancer animations and that lovely interference effect - great.
I agree with everyone else that the disco ball part somehow felt like it should start moving, I guess since there was no other action during that part.
Also it ended to quickly, I wanted more, more! :D

Solid production with a really good soundtrack. Reminded me a bit of Boogie Factor.

Shame on you for not spinning that head ;)

Some nice stuff. Slightly glitchy but that interference circle is probably the coolest thing in the show.

Well, to second Puterman - the concept feels used, and the disco gfx feels like it needs quite some polish before the final release. Same goes with the texts and the dancer animation frames.

Save for that, the star-effect was fresh, the dancer nice, the interference mindblowing and the music solid. Yeah, and that intro-effect is a real killer! I would probably have had a hard time choosing between this and Silver Star for the top vote.

oopsss!... puterman vs archmage - round one! :D
User Comment
Submitted by Puterman on 23 August 2008
I would have voted this as number one, because some parts look really fresh (especially the interference). Not all that solid, though, for obvious reasons. The concept feels tired, and the music doesn't get me going at all.

I am Linus' biggest fan and I'll cross swords with anyone who dare say different! Yay! What a composer!

A couple of very nice screens here, most notably the one in the snapshot. Feels a bit stuttery due to the black screens when loading, but all in all a nice demo which will get a permanent place in my diskbox.

And yeah, about that disko ball...

Nicelooking effects, allthough still a bit unpolished. Thanks for the link, Abaddon, chicks with d... bassguitars rule.

I miss the pace and timing. Also some black screens ruin it for me.
Saw some nice things coming by tho.

this one should've won. cool demo!

seemingly less codepr0n but designwise it definitely beats 'silver star'. i almost feel that i watch regular videoclip or spaceballs' 'state of art' :D thumbs up! just pity that the disco ball wasn't movin' :(

Too short, and yes there are rushed parts, like the unexploited opportunities that could have been done in the disco ball part.

There is a design concept flowing through the production, totally not just a coder demo.

The interference effect is awesome, looks positively plus4-ish to me -- makes it no wonder to see Bubis in the credits. ;]

@hcl, we have released the mirror ball in cauldron, back then it didnt looked like we will do something with the leftovers of our dead 'disco project'.

Love some screens, especially the background of the girl anim with colorful flashing squares. Easy but very good looking! The mirror ball don't rotate here at my place, should it!?

i am into this kind of demos... thumbs up - i like it! i believe "silver star" was more difficult to code but this demo is still my number 1 from the compo (sorry clarence) as it has a better flow and freshness. the dancing girl is übercool, a pity she forgot to dance to the rhythm. :) music rocks, finally a tune from li-nuss that i like.

Truly great stuff here. Pity it isn't longer, more consistent and dynamic so it could take Boogie Factor off from the throne of funky demos. Also miss the awesome disco ball from Cauldron. <not cool>YAY, and even more tagged converted/retouched graphics!</not cool>

nice! the interference fx totally rocks <3 a bit short though, the end comes a bit unexpected. oh well :)

Very nice! I'd say this is my #1 from the compo. Obviously inspired by Boogie Factor. But technically probably a lot better, as can be expected from the Hungarian macho coders.
