PPC-demos on classic - what works - what doesn't

I have a A4000 with a CSPPC233, Mediator 4000Di MK2 with Voodoo 5, SB128 and ethernet running OS3.9 BB4 with WarpOS5.1 and Warp3D 4.2 (the Elbox edition).

I am trying to create a overview over what PPC demoes with RTG there are for classic and how they run. The "project" started because I was trying to finetune my setup so that I could get QuakeWOS to run. The last part with no success - so far.

So far my results have been as below. If anybody knows of other PPC-demoes or have other results please share.

BY NIGHT by ENCORE
Window-mode: Works flawlessly
Fullscreen: Works flawlessly

Serial Interference by ENCORE - added on 8th of December 13
Window-mode: Starts up fine. At the end the window goes black and the machine freezes and the music continues to play.
Fullscreen: Starts up fine. At the end the window goes black and the machine freezes and the music continues to play.

I'm willing to bet the rtg aware demos are expecting BVision or CVision with CybergraphX in mind when these demos were made, especially the Warp3D ones.

I recall 2 demos 'Everything dies' and 'Ghost in the machine' by Venus Arts having ppc versions, although not that impressive.

Yes, you are probably right about the CVision/Cybergraph. I am reasonably satisfied wit the result so far but it could be better.

Thanks for the heads up for the two demos. I will give them a try.

Regarding "Planet Potion":

I never heard of anyone being able to run it on anything but BVision or CVisionPPC.
It took me quite a while to run it on my setup (BPPC+BVision), it started to run only after I did the following:

1) Set AHI to Paula 8-bit DMA mode
2) Change WB res to 640x480 (cant remember if 8 or 15 bits)
3) Start the demo

Any other combination I tried resulted in a black screen with no sound.

Here's a list of demos running under MorphOS, maybe you get some tips from it on running on your classic system. Maybe at least those three last demos could run too?

And AFAIK that Planet Potion (as well as Future Visions) only work with BPPC+BVision combo... which is a real shame because they're the best on PPC ever. I wish someone could do some serious patching for them

Browse through some of them here:

I'm sure you'll find some AGA/PPC intros and demos. Some of them are really worth watching. Enjoy.
