[Found: Deus Ex Machina] Young man with LSD pill, demoscene pic

I remember from an old magazine, it might have been the swedish Datormagazin but I'm not sure, there was an article about demoscene.

In it there was some random screenshots from demos. One of them was of a boy or young man that has his tongue out with a pill on it (like an LSD pill or whatever)

Anyone know what demo this is from?

I know exactly what picture you are referring to, but can't remember the author! Looking through my collection of scene pixel graphics, to see if I can find it Once the author is found, it should be easy to find the demo it was used.

Not exactly how I remembered it, but sure it is this one?



If so the author is MRK (Mattias R. Kylén) from Sweden.
More info here

Have not tracked down the demo yet.

I did a video for you from a real Amiga. Not best quality but at least not some crap UAE capture
I was there at The Gathering when it was released in 1997.

Thanks nikosidis. I just watched it, its a great demo. Also found the original IFF file from one of the links that Zack provided.

http://ftp.amigascne.org/pub/amiga/G...7/ace_freh.iff

It had this text:

Quote:
"Ace Frehley", 10th in The Gathering 1997 graphics competition.

Also used in Limited Edition's amiga demo "Deus Ex Machina" (april 1997) at
the same party.

ACE_FREH.IFF original iff file.
ACE_FREH.PNG png conversion.
Must have been some entries if this one was only 10th

Hehe, yes for sure. It was the heyday of the Amiga demo scene. Ace Frehley, that was the original guitar player of KISS. He is known for being a heavy drinker but no LSD

Also, at the left and right edge of the pic there is faint text "she wants a rocket ride" lyrics from KISS song "Rocket Ride"

Dont quite get the connection between picture contents and KISS song, either

Quite like the song, never thought this would lead me down the KISS rabbit hole

Ah, yes that is a KISS song

ACE did fire rocket from his guitar on stage

The guy that did the picture is probably just a KISS fan. It is not always connection between things.

It is funny but at the same time, we have to learn lessons from such stories and not do the same. I believe that in such cases a pill identifier app can solve everything. I often use this application because it is convenient for me and I see it as a safe method. Before I found out about it, I often rushed to confuse the pills and because of this I had problems, but it wasn't that bad. However, each pill has its own destination and should not be confused, having different properties and effects on the body.
