Title: 20 SECONDS - of Cobra
Post by: GrahamK on March 15, 2007
First time I've done one of these, so go easy ;)

You can hit the number keys for some different effects.

Oops, forgot to mention.. Music by Fash, originally for my marbles game.

Nice, and even nicer when pressing the number keys in a random order like a freak! :D

Nice. You have got lots of stuff going on there, I like the cubes :)

Pressing the number keys on my laptop dident seem to do anything for me tho  ???

pressing 1 - 5 should change the warp effect, but it only switches on the next second of the countdown.

Thanks all for the nice comments.  :updance:

welldone graham k and the cube move when the music play is good as I think that could be called "Band equalizle" (sorry for horrible spelling but I am sure u know what I mean)

cheers

Oh yeah, dont know how I failed to notice that o_O.

The effects when you press 1 and 2 are really cool :)

The warping could be a lot better tbh, but I don't really have time to finetune the maths  :whack:
I've decided that doing a few more demo's will act as a nice way of testing out Cobra features, so hopefully this won't be my first, AND last ;)

Just got to do some trawling of this forum, so many cool techniques to learn and so little time.....

Nice Cobra Demo!  :D  I still hate the small window though - demos should be full screen IMO.

It's showing some nice colour blending effects too as well as the scaling. This demo proves for sure that Cobra can make great looking demos!

Graham, if there's any of my sources/techniques you want to see that aren't here, drop me a note, I'm more than happy to help :)

hehe, expect to be pestered  :clap:

But probably not for a little while, gotta concentrate on Docs and Cobra3D (however much fun this is...)

Yep.. Demos don't pay the bills :)

Post by: GrahamK on March 16, 2007
Nope, but you can save them to CD, sharpen the edges and throw them at tax men though  :diablo:

Very cool Graham  :kewl:

This is the first thing I've seen in cobra, and a very nice show of capabilities it is, welldone :)

Yep!  The future's bright, the future's Cobra!  Yep I'm drunk - it's true though!   :updance:

[Edit] Now the 6 nations finished I should be drinking less and programming more - which is no bad thing.

It's a good time to make a demo then :P :)

Ah I wish I had the time!  Shall I write a game?  Should I write a demo?  I'll leave the demos to the experts I think.  Always happy to see your work though - demos rock!

One day maybe!  :cheers:
