Back to demos for a moment. I think tAAt's text mode demo competition is a great idea. Not to say I wasn't proud,
but I always thought the people who were impressed by the text mode effects of Foolish were too easily pleased. This competition ought to balance things out in that respect, and remind people that you can do wonderful things in text mode.
However, when I downloaded the invtro
I was reminded of one IMO particularly ugly facet of the demo scene's decline into decadence: .ogg music. Why not just make the whole demo an .mpg while you're at it, hm?
Of the demos I've seen of late, I've been far more impressed by the third party .ogg or .mp3 player than anything in the demo itself.
