This is absolutely amazing, this download which is under 200kb looks like a game that would be several hundred megabytes. The tech demo uses advanced compression algorithms and procedural generated content to create the world you see. This group has other tech demos to, and its pretty amazing but this is the latest work.

Looks better than some next gen games that are coming out.... just amazing. 177kb???

XP. And it's a laptop with a GMA 900 so that's probably why :p

No way!!! Where was all that music coming from? A 177KB file??

That was incredible. I saw one of these a few years ago which was around the same size and nowhere near as impressive. I can't believe how far this stuff has progressed!

How do they do that music?! MIDI?

That was a beautifully done demo. Imagine a full blown game with that much detail and a small footprint of a file. Wow :eek:

Hardly awsome if you need a PS 2 card :)

Show me a similar demo that supports older cards and that would be awesome :)

the point of demos is to show off the capabilites of currently available hardware and the developers.

Not to prove that they have super-duper-awesome software raytracer version 1337....

Hey, do us all a favour and leave this thread alone, or prove you are better and create a demo like those guys have done. In the same file size.

dublex, the impressive part isn't the demo, the impressive part of this is the size of the download that gives us a demo that quality

anyway, I can't figure out how to come out of the demo without forcing my system down

task manager works but my cursor and keyboard don't, alt-f4 doesn't work...the only thing that gets me out of it is a force shutdown

also, it plays choppy on my laptop, I have dual core 64 bit turiton and two gigs memory, nvidia

The escape key worked for me, though I assume you've already tried that! It wasn't 100% smooth on my rig running at 1280 x 1024.

FR stuff usually exits on esc or alt-f4 though there are bugs that mean it doesn't always work like that sometimes :) I've had it work one play through and not the next in the past, just pot luck really :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
