    Just like to say, magnum233 that was some wicked as Maya stuff, really awesome 😉

    I found the link to "Maya Learning Edition" on the net and just thought I'd share it with everyone. For those of you that don't know what Maya is yet, it's a top of the line, professional 3D modeling package. The actual full product is quite pricey, but the learning edition is free to download (for non commercial use), for anyone that wants to learn a bit of 3D modeling.


    I wanted to give it a go once myself, but never got round to it, as programming already consumes a lot of my time, you can't get into every area of computing I guess. Might give it a go one day again however 😉

    btw, your pretty good at code dude.

    I have to say im completely impressed.

    The knowledge thats in your head, its amazeing lol.

    And not to mention your about the only person ive meet in NZ so far who has any association let alone knows what im talking about when it comes to the demo scene.

    It really cool to meet someone on a similar understanding level even if your experience is way up their and im a bit closer to earth. I guess its all about networking.

    I know what you mean about the demo scene Marty, man those minds can calculate! I'm impressed with how small those guys can get those demos down too! 64k and even smaller! "wow" I was checking out this site today:


    Especially found the physics demo to be very interesting as well, where you can play with particles, fluid, moving objects, curtains etc..

    For all your computer needs

    It's not a 9-5 job. It's an every moment you're awake job because you actually enjoy the work that you're doing.

    That's a really cool site, that shows you a few of the best 64k demos, including screenshots. I found when I go through [url=http://scene.org]scene.org[/url], although there are heaps of demos there, you never really know which are the good ones. From that list, the only one I had actually seen was "Project Genesis" by "The Conspiracy". Al the others are new to me.

    "Point Blank" by "Stockholm Syndrome", got first place at "The Ultimate Meeting 2003", hehe this was the same demo party our demo from 7th Cube got drawn for third (I never attended because it was overseas), but I never really though ours was that good of a demo.

    Last but not least, it's interesting to hear that Farbrausch have released .werkkzeug, their tool that they used to create all their 64k demos! Included is the full source file to one of their most impressive demos: "The Produkt"

    And another impressive production from Farbrausch would have to be ".krieger", this is an entire game in 96k!!

    An entire game in 96k lol. Amazeing.

    Some of this code these days is getting pretty compacted.

    Last game i played that was even close to that size would of been ZZT, which was a asci bassed (possibly with some qbasic) maze puzzle game. I was seriously addicted to this game 🤢

    dudes, the stuff on that page is out of it.


    how is it even possible???

    I will have alot of fun checking them out not to mention not haveing to wait all day to get them (im on 56k 🙁

    And best of all is they are fully free to download and watch, where as something with the same entertainment value like this, at a movie theater you will pay $10 upwards to watch.

    Till now i only knew of something like this as small as 15k. These are truly amazeing pieces of code.
