Here is a great resource. They use a lot of slang so look under prods and make sure its for the pc when you grab it. People still code c-64 and amiga demos to this day. No really !

Indeed, making proper demos and intros (demos with very restrictive size limitations, usually 64 or 4kB) seems to be limited to europe.

Fun thing about making demos is that there is basically no limitations outside your imagination and/or skills.
There is simply no right or wrong way to go or do, there's just open canvas which you are to explore.

There are 'art' demos and those which are most technically oriented, but there are no limits what you can do with it.
Basically demo can be as simple as hello world! or complex as hell and might hold some interactive elements. (sadly underused feature.)

We did demos mostly between 486-pentium3? times meaning pure CPU demos and for DOS.
First starting with Pascal moving to pure ASM and then to C.
(group was/is Halcyon)

Yes, Andromeda in all it's configurations has made some sweet demos during a very long time and those guys usually know how to do something looking good.
Sadly they did some ugly looking stuff in that demo. (mostly horrid SSAO which ruined many scenes for me)

Runs great here,my monitor wont go higher than 1680x1050 though.Gpu temp peaked at 75 c with 60% fanspeed.Looks more like modern art than anything else,kinda funky.

When you say "runs great" what are you seeing ? This thing is dipping down in to like 20's for me at 1080p on a 480 that is overclocked pretty good and a q6600 at 3.67ghz.

Drivers maybe ? 263.00 for me. You ?

Ran rather well for me, 1920 x 1200 all options maxed. Didn't look that impressive imo.

The demo I really want to see is that ATi one with Ruby fighting a gian robot... was it for the 4800 cards? 3800? Regardless, don't think they ever released a full executable for that demo. Would love to see that, and how it performs, on my 5770.

That demo didnt impress you ? I wow. I think the machine transformation sequences were stunning and then the pan back after that to reveal that it was just a small maze...

Guess its in the eye of the beerholder.

Here's a list of all productions we made, there's also download links, videos and DVD.

Some of the intros used form of .exe compression which is similar to what some virus use.
If nothing else works check the DVD.
