It's great to see the Amiga in it's rightful place as the machine of choice for the demo creator.

Im ASTOUNDED !!!... This has restored my faith in the Amiga, but i dont think it was ever really lost!.

You can watch it on YouTube. Someone posted it up there. I still cant believe how they did it!? .. Now i know why i loved TBL so much, the things they were doing on an 030 years ago were incredible too.

Now GO AND WATCH IT!!.

For me, this demo totally deserved to win. And I guess a lot of ppl at ASM thought the same. It's a nice piece of art and much cooler than the PC demos released at ASM. At least for me. Then again, I never liked PC demos that much.

At first I thought this was a little odd... Submitting a demo running under an emulator.. But even that's impressive, and I understand there were some extenuating circumstances (coder's 1260 board broke) ... And for it to win I guess that means the people there didn't much care. Hopefully the final version will be released soon and have the same results.

In any event.. I just watched it on my meager 1.1 ghz PC with WinUAE and it really is impressive. Seemed as if some of the scenes were pre-rendered animation with 3D on top of it (or is that more common these days for demos?) and not fully rendered in real time, but I can forgive that since it still pushed the hardware and they blended nicely. Also had great music and synced well. Very entertaining to boot. The Vista-like part there in the middle was a neat flashback (something I'd assume really was real-time).

I'm curious now what the (PC) competition was (and also the hardware requirements..)

I cant get it to play nice in winuae. with vsync on or off the tearing is quite bad. making an ntsc 60hz mode is better but cuts some of the image off anc completely messes up the gfx sound sync.

Also the cycle exact option is useful if you want to see the speed it may run at on real 060 amiga. a massive difference to it running turbo charged on winuae non exact mode. from orevious tbl demoes, i know its not worth trying on my real 040/ppc amiga

Go Amiga!!!! To win a demo contest in 2006 is some going for a platform that's supposedly been dead for years.

And what a piece of work that is, just watched it on the tube and I can see why it won, it's absolutely stunning. If they don't get great jobs in the computer or media industry I'd be amazed, they could be doing music vids with talent like that

I don't know if this will help much, the author might have set it a little extra high, just in case, but the WinUAE config included with the demo is 2 chip, 128 megs Z3. The comment for the config is '1200 with 68060 and lots of memory.' The txt in the archive doesn't list any requirements..

Its a new killer from Tbl !

If you have the version that crashes/goes on forever with the walking robot;

Get the proper release!

Dont forget to download all the demos from http://amiga.bbs.fi , here you will also find the proper Tbl release!

"WE BREAK SHIT"

This is AWESOME. Hopefully I know someone who has an Amiga that's actually capable of running the thing.

Fantastic stuff.... high system requirements, but would you really expect to run a decent 2006 game on a 486, nope!! Well deserved.
