not actually true.. jesus on e's loads from disk as needed (anims and mods) the mods share many samples also. I like this production and enjoy the music quite a lot. sure the coding isnt amazing, but its entertaining for me.

Suck-ass graphics
I think the loading pic is rather good :-) and rememebr its only 2 disks. with the mods and everything not much space for tons of gfx.

Suck-ass run-of-the-mill effects
some simple effects yes. But well timed with the music

Suck-ass music.
I totally disagree.. Some excellent breakbeat mixes.

Boring as hell (20+ minutes of the same shite?)
Its a music disk. the music changes!

I think the thing I hate the most about Jesus on Es is the music. I really find it cack!!

I agree though, the part I like the best, is the beginning, with the loading pic and the cool Mike Oldfield tune! I thought I was in for a blast! But after that, I start snoring at the minute

Jesus on Es is, IMO, as overrated as Lapsuus

I guess i agree on this. Jesus on e's is no where near the top
of my all time favourite demos. Its still good, andi enjoy it, but there is far better productions out there. And why has noone listed any andomeda stuff? those were really beautiful polished demos.. along with stuff from TEK.

I think my favourite "non stop" music mix would be "TEF giga mix"

take a look. its on ftp.amigascne.org i think. or i could upload it for you

The first Demo I saw on a beloved A1000 was Sodans Tech-Tech .. Nice because of the Kraftwerk samples.

The Demo what really kicks my butt was - Megademo II by Northstar & FLT .. it was the first Demo that ran on my own Amiga. I still like it because it's my personal nostalgia ..

Other demos that were really cool in my oppinion:

Uli (United Lamers Inc.) Megademo containing Total Stagnation (hello Anarchy )
Scoopex - Mental Hangover (played 1000th of times)
RSI Megademo
and of course every Animators Production ..

My all time favourite demo has to be Desert Dreams by Kefrens
The stretchy bouncy box routine was amazing and I still dont know how its done.



However, for pure Nostalgia. it has to be the raytraced Juggler Demo.. This was the VERY first thing I saw running on an Amiga in Harrods in London (Id gone there because it was one of the few shops that sold Amstrad PCW games which was the only computer I had before an Amiga)

After seeing that demo I had to have an Amiga but it took me about a year before I saved enough to buy one.

Yes, the Amiga Juggler!

My family had just bought a C64 and I thought that was great. The Amiga (1000) seemed like some sort of supercomputer to me when I saw that in 1986.

The Walker demo

The empirial walker demo (from The Empire Strikes Back) where it walks past an Amiga2000. I remember lots of non-computer people stopping to watch this one which was shown continuously at some department stores.
Still, despite people showing this kind of interest they all probably went and brought IBM clones

* Yes, I know technically these were both animations, but usually these were more impressive visually then most demos. I can admire peoples programming skills but the best demos for me were the ones that made use of the Amigas fast 2D display (zooming and fast effects) and smooth scrolling instead of those 'my Doom engine is better than yours' demos. Not to mention the : 1024 dots on the screen, 2048 dots, 4096 dots - Who cares? Its just a rotating ball. Have it morph into different shapes while rotating - thats more impressive to watch.

For me it was the 2 Budbrain megademos. In the early days demos were mainly found and europe and not widely spread here in Canada until later on.

Smile Base demo and a plea for Jesus On Es

Really don´t know who programmed it and don´t know in which year it originated but it really was Amiga at its best: In essence Base is a music demo split up in four or five sections consisting of different music mods. The graphics consist of those typical Copper chip tricks. The mod which features sampled voices singing ´Move your body, rock your body´really rocked. The music is typical end Eighties/beginning Nineties Techno with sound effects that sounded dated two years later. But for me it was the best thing at the time (1991).

About Jesus On Es: If you have seen the demo for the first time in 1993 or later, you´ll be bored with it. But at the time it was released, autumn 1992, it really blew me away because it featured samples and tunes which could also be heard on radio. It features samples taken from The Shamen´s ´Ebeneezer Goode´ (best Techno song of ´92 IMHO) which is for me THE reason to make it my favourite music/demo. Oh, and the animation taken from 2Unlimited´s videoclip ´Magic Friends´ also adds to the demo´s status.
If you want to know how house music sounded like in 1992, load Jesus On Es for a stroll down memory lane...

Autumn 1992 is 4 or 6 months short of 1993

I really don't think music in that period sounded that bad! really, I find this demo to be horrible!

Even though I never liked Amiga Demos as much as I like the ST ones , I can distinguish the following:

-Odyssey (a brilliant space odyssey)
-Coma
-Jesus on E's
-Enigma

Apart from the usual demos I enjoyed (Enigma , Desert Dreams,SOA etc )
The early single loaders bring a tear to my eye
Like Subway from rebels (cool sample tune & good wow factor for the time),
Wild Copper demos (I luv u!),
flight of fantasy ?(Cant remember directly i think it was by fairlight? & had very familiar cool music though)
SAE single load demos (eg fractal mountains )
Anarchy Phantasmagoria?

and multi loads...
Northstar & fairghlight 2? (mahoney & kaktus.. boing bing bu cha! ,
Red sector mega demo 2 ,(the one with the guy striking a match during loads),
and I just love Kefrens mega demo 8 ( for diversity ..open the pod bay doors hal!)
Silents Global Trash and anything with jesper kyd tunes in it
and more recently anything by melon & lemon for cool designs...
sorry some of the names escape me this early in the morning!....

The first demo I saw on my Amiga was "TechTech" from Magician42 & SODAN. "Boing-peng-bumm-tschack-peng!"

It had a lot of rip-offs (gfx from Defender of the Crown)...

Does anyone know the names of the songs from which all the samples were ripped? I'd like to listen to the complete songs.

Thumbs up

Another one I have thought of is:


Ray of Hope 2 by MAJIC42

anyone have ray of hope 1 or doesnt it actually exist.

I think its the muzak that makes ray of hope 2 and also the funky distorted magnetic fields effect which i think was a first for this in this demo
