Vectors, bump-mapping, interlaced mode, plots, art and a nice SID sauce on top. I love it. :D

Effort went into the greetings part and train-car credits part, complete with cool graffiti style.

People probably never knew this, but anyway...

This demo ended up being playing via a 1541u during the actual compo. This was due to constant testing of the demo on my own 1541-II drive hours before the compo started. Although I wasn't taking notice, I overheard that the drive kept crashing at a certain point. I should have really informed Sebaloz (who was testing the demo) that my 1541-II had serious drive head alignment problems in the past (it was bought on eBay back in 2006), which MIGHT have caused this problem... then again, K.M's loader may had problems too, but I'm not that sure. Just surprising that it would work perfect on Zielok's 1541 but not mine. :(

Shit happens.

What Zaz said. Especially The End tune is excellent. Psycho knows how to handle the SID!! Effects a bit dated and some graphics not on par with the rest of the demo but there are some really neat stuff in there as well.

Some very good stuff in there but: the soundtrack! It's simply amazing!!! Totally made the demo for me.

Have to agree with Jammer, this soundtrack kicks! Just a pity at times as it seems to really get going, then stop suddenly. This demo is something I find myself coming back to, I think its the "rawness" of it, the vectorplots are very cool to say the least. The graphics at the end are also very nice! Great work :)

Moody demo.
I really liked transitions between graphics and effects.
Some graphics and vectors are very good.

Like it, quite cyberpunkish but not very coherent... good code with some shortcuts and cutshorts ;)

What a surprise! Firstly, seeing Profi 0 first become quite a decent graphician and now even puts his hand on code. Second, this demo is quite long and has a quite a few really strong parts in it. But I also agree to Booker: there's some crap in here as well, and the flow of the demo sometimes comes to a halt. I also think that this demo "almost" has a story. It was a good attempt I think but somewhere along the way the story gets lost.
In any way, one of the best demos so far from you guys, and shows a lot of potential.

nice demo. the tune was great... the vectors were nice (ok the framerate was a bit low in some parts, but i still liked them alot)... some of the gfx were also great. and the greetings-part was very cool. thanks for the greetz there :) i think with a bit more polishing here and there you will be able to create winnerdemos. this demo showed alot of your potential. keep it up and hope to see more in the future.

This definately had some nice parts in it, i gotta say i never grow tired of dithermode-bumpmappers! ;-D I also liked the huge filled vector parts and ofcourse the custom-greetings part was awesome, i felt really honored to see our walker in there! ;-D

Booker I don't know who said that, but it must be somebody from old polish elite. One of the sceners who already reached the top and everyone praises his name. Sorry, we're just average. But I've promised myself, one day I'll also reach the top!!! :):):)

The only thing I'm missing here is slooow moving between parts and cheap loading gfx converts like this nuke explosion thing.

Other than that - you chaps getting better and better from demo to demo!

Keep it up. :) Moar plz!

ps. "a wasza ekipa oprócz Carrion'a to przeciętniacy i tak jest dużo." (C) we know who. ROFL

This one was a nice surprise in the competition. A bit rough in the presentation, but some nice ideas in it.

It's nice to see those Polish style demos again (chunky effects and pure code :)

This demo includes a lot of visual works and I really enjoyed it. Greetings part reminded me some PC demos' greetings parts which had a design for each group. I really liked seeing Glance there. Also disappointed for not seeing Plush. ;)

Nice demo guys, there were really some nice design ideas and effects. Maybe a little slow paced. It's always special to appear in such custom greetings part so thank you... :)

Brilliant effort, not a fair place but hey its all just fun. Doesnt matter that you got beaten by Cubase emulator coz that was a REAL demo :) Zielok dont give up and do more coding - it will pay off eventually! Just ditch that old KM and swap it for younger system :) God bless Sebaloz for your kick ass greeting part and Psycho well fucking done for the wicked tunes.
