Future Team releases Demo code for Second Reality!

Posted 18 August 2013 - 09:14 AM

The Secound Reality Demo's sorce code has been released and someone did a nice write up about it:

SECOND REALITY CODE REVIEW
This is a very interesting read since we don't always get to see under the hood of these amazing programs.



Demos for those of you who don't know what they are, are short "shout out" style programs that display a programmers ability to program ie. show off. Back in the day a Demo was added to game to show everyone who cracked the copy protection on it. Now, Demo's are made as stand alone programs and are just for showing off a programmers and or groups skill.

Um,, no, far from it.

Do you know what a demo is (in this context) as in "the demo scene"

Wiki demo stuff

Sweetness. These are written in assembly to keep the overhead processing requirements low. Demo scene is huge in other countries. There used to be one in Cleveland that was affiliated with notacon, but it split off into it's own thing now & was replaced with pixeljam.

Also, for what it's worth being related to demo scenes, just throwing this link out for cracking intro history/nostalgia.
