this would look awesome as a music visualisation for PlayStation 3, and replace the greetings scroller with track title/artist/album!!!!!i'm also known as mr rounce on pouet, taurus170582 on youtube and my PSN ID is taurus82
Requires a fast PS 3.0 compatible graphics card,
WindowsXP or Vista and DirectX 9.0c installed.
Navis's info files usually contain a wealth of
information about the making of the production.
So in that vein, here goes:
Gina asked (when I was wasted at Breakpoint - good
tactic) if I would like to help out on a multi-group
co-op invite for Realtime Generation. I said "ok"
with various conditions, such as "if fiver2 does
the graphics"; "if I dont have to code anything";
and "if I can get some more booze". And then I
completely forgot about it.
Fast forward to after breakpoint, and I get the mail
from Gina - "great that you agreed to help out! it
should contain such and such information!". Well,
I was about to mail back and say "sorry, but.." as
I really didn't fancy getting into another big
production straight after BP. But then I talked
about it to Navis and he persuaded me it would be
possible to do something pretty simple and small.
Besides, what's the last thing people would expect
if we did a co-op? Something totally and utterly
conventional and typically "demo-style". They'll
never see that one coming!
We threw a few ideas around and something developed
using a pulsing ball and cubey background. This
conveniently required artwork that could easily
be made by relative simpletons (e.g. two coders).
In just a few hours on a saturday morning I had the
skeleton of the demo down.
Navis made the rest of the graphics, and I managed
to suck in Keito to make the track, which he did
most of from scratch in a single night. Then around
a week more work followed, mainly tweaking the
engine to properly support motion blur, fixing the
performance on NVPerfHUD and arguing about the
font. Soon enough, we were done.
Of course, if Navis had coded it it would have ran
on an FX5600 and taken half the space. But you
can't have everything.
