Demos and Demoscene in general are one of my big hobbies.
I'm in a little demomakers group called N.A.A.
Place: JFF Convention 98
For the moment I've done with my group N.A.A. only one demo: Darkness.
It was my first important project that's why there are some bugs. But
I'm proud of this demo because it has lots of graphical effects.
There is a big bug of screen synchronisation on some video cards. I'm
sorry for that...

This is the second demo I've done with my group N.A.A.
This demo use a 3D engine that support OpenGL and Direct3D, it should run on most 3D card.
You don't need to have a high-end system to watch this demo (not like other 3d demo that
need a geforce to run smoothly).
The engine have been tested on: Rage Pro, Rage 128, G200, G400, TNT, GeForce, GeForce2.
You need 64MB of RAM (the demo allocate 12MB, other memory is used by textures, driver and windows).
At first we created this demo in order to use the only one motion capture anim I've succeeded to calculate (more on this later :) ).
For the code, the engine is very developped.
It support: OpenGL and Direct3D, hierarchical animations, lighting, quaternions,
frustrum culling, OpenGL extensions (gl_ext_lock_array, gl_ext_fog_coord),
flares, particules, volumetric fog, fade out / crossfade / deformations transitions.

with environnement mapping + (faked) reflection
motion capture anim (not easy to see on a picture :)
) + graph by Ben
The final version is released :-). Mirrors should be available soon...

On this demo we only cared about what we wanted to do.
I told the artists (Freeman and Ben) that there are no more limits (as max 10000 poly/scene in Childbone), so most of the scenes have more that 100000 polys, with multitexturing, bump-mapping, and sometimes motion blur, dynamic shadows or depth-of-field.
That's why you need at least a geforce 2 to run it.
The 3d engine only supports OpenGL with NVIDIA extensions. Sorry for the others, I don't have time to support other graphic cards, and opengl2 is not available yet...
If you want to see the demo but you don't have the hardware, there is a DivX version available that work everywhere.
