Title: [UDG] Afternoon Voyage
Post by: Shockwave on February 23, 2013
A really, really quickly coded < 40kb intro for the DBF UDG Challenge 2013.

Software rendered with some perhaps predictable effects and a looooong scroller.

Not a lot more to add about it really, but considering it's the result of about 5 hours work it's not too bad, even though I had planned something rather more grand I was defeated by my own apathy!!

Anyway I really hope you like it, it was fun finding out how much I have forgotten :)

love it - the tune sparked a nostalgia kick for some other  4mat stuff!

can sympathise with the time aspect too! althought i do also spend all day doing 'business' code, at least i'm writing code in c/c++ and am doing a lot of data manipulation with structs/files etc - rarely gfx though!

Thanks Canopy, I really like 4-Mat's small tunes too.  It was either going to be Starworkz (the one I used) or Share And Enjoy which I prefer but the playroutine wouldn't play it properly & I didn't have enough time today to fix it.

Wow, totally awesome, especially for a couple of hours work! Very smooth, definitely a podium place in my book!  :clap:

Cool you managed to enter something at the last minute!  :cheers:

My jaw just dropped through the floor and is currently making it's way to the centre of the Earth - this is amazing.

There's at least five separate effects I can spot, four of which are simultaneous, the music is an excellent choice and the detail is breath taking.

Thanks for the kind comments CK.  There are 7 effects, 2 chess funk effects, a blob twister, a filled vector, a scroll, a spectrum analyser and finally a weird screen dissolving effect :)

Wow there are so many cool effects!

I recognise the module from somewhere but I cannot remember where...

Nice one, ShockWave!

Very nice and colorful. Reminds me of a spectrum demo I once saw, I think it was called bomb or something. That demo was the first thing that popped in mind when you first posted the rules for the compo.

Amazing for only 5 hours of coding! In medieval times you would have probably ended up on the stake for witchcraft...  :stirrer:  ;) Cool stuff!  :clap:

Ah, I'd missed out the dissolve and counted the chess background as a single effect. Good thing I'm still learning.
