I'd be interested in testing it out too (And I live in the UK)

Hmmm... can't you get some space on the net somewhere to distro it?

Beautifully done mate!

Watching this in WS is incredible.

Until now i've only noticed one lil' thingie... The screen in 16:9 is not centered... so it cuts a bit of the right side... Playing it on 4:3 this issue is corrected.

Can you release this in two flavours? FS and WS?

The main menu screen is not centered with menu 2 and 3 but 2 and 3 are centered fine.

Probably best to avoid torrents at the moment !

Best bet is to make it one big RAR and distribute over emule.

And (NOW I AM SERIOUS) call it something like "Paris Hilton - New Sex Video December 2004.rar". It doesn't matter what you call it as long as you provide the filehash link.

This way random pervs using emule will find this and be downloading it too, hence increasing the number of sources/speed for all.

Once most of us have got it we all rename the file around the same time to what it really is.

By the time the pervs have figured this out we'd already have used plenty of their upload bandwidth Remember if it is one RAR they have to download all of it to see what it is

Of course a perv who downloads this and finds out it's not Paris might be annoyed, which is not something you want if you have your email address or eab's website mentioned in there.

So what you do is.....

Before sharing open up the RAR file into a hex editor, and change the first say 10 bytes to corrupt it so it can never be opened.

On here you of course post what the original ten bytes were

I'm really sorry I've been so slow with feedback! Been having some problems with my computer. But now all is re-installed and working at full speed. Will be back shortly with more in-depth report.

Concerning the spreading of the DVD. I'll probably have access to 10Mbit's of bandwith for a short period of time soon. If you want to we can shedule a spreading/downloading session within that time.

It played good, except that I seemed to have trouble going between VOBs automatically, on normal play. I could get WinDVD to go to the next VOB by using fast forward, though. Other than that, I didn't have any problems watching Arte or 3D Demo I (haven't had time to sit down and watch the others).

Been testing a psysical copy I made from the rar'd demodvd. So here's a couple of things

1. First thing that comes to my mind is that you should have the option to skip the intro. 1 minute could prove to be irritating in the long run, even if it's not now. By experimenting with this my DVD also played the intro twice after fastforwarding.

2. Just as Dastardly I think the highlighting of 'Watch Demo' and 'Main Menu' are a bit confusing. Also, in the main menu, the Menu1-3 text is rather small, hardly noticeble (Not a real problem though, you can choose to ignore that )

3. Most demos are cut off on the sides, the top and bottom on my widescreen TV. Don't know if this is a PAL/NTSC issue?

4. The music ends abruptly on Despair in the middle of the demo.

5. The 'Main Menu' option in Human Target is too small to read until you highlight it, after which a larger 'Main Menu' text appears above the smaller one instead of "resizing" it (or at least making the impression of it.)

There, a few things. Hope they're not results of me making my own iso out of the DVD, but it shouldn't be. May I also say, great job bippym! It's great fun to watch the demos, and I know that you've spent a great deal of time to put it together, so kudos!

Press play on your remote

Will look at these

It's your tv, play with the zoom options or put it into 4:3

I'll check this and redo it

Doesn't help.

I don't know what the problem is then..

I know 3DDemo2 has some problems with cropping but all the others are perfectly fine on mine.

Can any of the other testers (who have the DVD thus far) test to see if demos are cropped please.

2. Menu 2 - Cant start the Despair demo. It wont allow me to highlight the 'Watch Demo'

A little annoyance I have is that on the demos menu screens the highlighting of 'Watch Demo' and 'Main Menu' isnt obvious enough and its hard to tell what your currently on (maybe its my eyesight). A nice highlight colour would improve this

This project really is fantastic and I loved every second of watching it!

Keep up the great work Bippy
Fixed, I'm not too sure what colour to make the selected buttons on the demo pages!!! any ideas guys?

in a word no!

Amiga demos are in FS not WS so it'd be pointless stretching them!

I'll have to look into why it is being chopped in 16:9!!
