Eye-Candy Demos?

Postby WillieSea » Sun Jan 21, 2007 1:02 am

Can anyone suggest some demos that are more than moving text around the screen and yapping about themselves?
I have been playing some demo compilation discs and that seems to be the main theme.
On the Atari 8bit, there were cool demos of a robot walking and spinning colorized Atari symbol bouncing around the screen. Does this type of eye-candy exist on the ST demo scene? I'm instrested in graphics, not text sprites or color bars.

Since I' ve been watching a few ST demos lately this is a list of some I really like...

Virtual Escape - Equinox http://pouet.net/prod.php?which=109
It runs on a 520 stf and it has beautiful 3d and some nice images... I especially liked the hidden part

Fantasia by Dune and Sector One
http://pouet.net/prod.php?which=11223
Some great screens there.

Moving into Darkness by DHS.
http://pouet.net/prod.php?which=9525
Beautiful. I' ve been watching it again and again and again.

Grimey by Reservoir Gods
http://pouet.net/prod.php?which=9576
I don't really know why I like that by I do.

STNICCC 2000 by Oxygene
http://pouet.net/prod.php?which=1251
STE only (doesn't run on falcon :( ) A full 3d world... Loved it. Thanks Leonard

Odd stuff Sector one and Dune
http://pouet.net/prod.php?which=1960
Great demo, no more comments needed.
An 1meg ST is required.

The first STE demo I watched: Techno drugs by No Limit Coding.
http://pouet.net/prod.php?which=21385
I didn't really like techno but I liked this demo.

OK I admit it I prefer new school and 3d. Though I have yet to watch many of the classics.

Thanks for the replies. I could not get some of them to work and I could not find on Planetemu the ones Marcer suggested. But they at least had more than scrolling text sprites...

Question: Do all the demos for the ST only contain scrollers, zoomers, and shapes (squares and blobs) distorting as they spin? Its nice to know the ST can do those things, but something else would be nice. I liked the 'moving into darkness' as it did something. I don't mean to be critical, but the demos I have seen are a bit short on imagination.

Well, scroll texts are a very important part of the Atari ST demo tradition. Most demo's will have them. The most of the old ST demo's concentrate on the technical difficulty of a demo effect, not the so much eye candy. I think you will find Gruessel http://pouet.net/prod.php?which=14093 very different. Most newer demo's are also more about design and less about effects. I like the Flip-O-Demo http://pouet.net/prod.php?which=110. There is also a lot of 3D stuff in demo's. I find the 3D part of the Synergy Mega demo very impressive: http://pouet.net/prod.php?which=752. This demo also contains the very good Crapman game.

Excellence in art Talk Talk demo is more about design and message then technical showoff.

Don't believe everything that is true.

Grotesque by omega is a pretty stunning 'rave' style demo for the STE. Slightly similar is 'nerdhouse' by sentry... Oh and the Tom & Jerry animation is good too.

other graphic animations are mostly conversion of miggy ones, such as 'walker' 'walker 2' & 'the run'.. 'Scanners' is a good one, mind :)

Thanks! Some of those were pretty neat. (Synrgy, Tom and Jerry, Grusel, WalkerII)

For those that are interested in a cool Atari Retro video on Google video, here is the link. It features the 'Walking Robot' from the Atari 800 days.

http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid ... tari&hl=en

It has some Atari 800, ST, and Mame games. Pretty neat with great music.

Nice as the robot may be I think that Numen is the best 8bit demo (though it requires a RAM expansion). I also really liked reditus.
And Illusion by Dune may be something you'd like to see.

Grotesque is nice but I like "Komische sakratten der Holle" (or something like that) in "Ooh Crickey Wot A Scorcher" better (http://pouet.net/prod.php?which=1044). Runs on a normal ST too.

Nice, but disk two comes close to Flip-O-Demo, but Flip-O-Demo is just a bit better, Illusion is a bit slow compared to Flip-O-Demo.

The lost boys one is good, but it does run out of sync after a while. Grotesque is just well put together and has some blisteringly fast 3D, but doesn't shout about it.. There's also a good one in one of the pandemonium demo by chaos... And I'm sure there was a conversion of the 'Kaos demo' by budbrain but I can't remember what demo it was part of, so i'm not a lot of help really, am I? :)
