    Default New Sega Mega Drive Demo "Red Eyes"

    I'm wondering why this has not been posted here before. It seems that some members of Titan produced some sort of advertising demo for the upcoming Technoptimistic music disk/cart release from remute.

    More information and the download can be found here: http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=80580

    For a video just visit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wPhqlB9_2w

    I'm impressed, mainly by how smooth everything is.

    Awesome! I love all the little effects added to the FMV.

    Is the 3D part running live, or an FMV stream? Either way, it was really enjoyable to watch.
    Modded consoles:
    Master System (v7040) with s-video & direct AV out
    Model 1 with 10mhz overclock & halt switches
    Model 1 with 10mhz 68010
    Model 2 VA2.3 with unfiltered Mega Amp, & s-video
    Model 3 VA1 with compatibility fixes & s-video
    32X with s-video

    Or my collection of homebrew Genesis games, programs, and music on SEGA-16!

    How did they get such a high framerate? Fast code notwithstanding, I thought there was a hard cap on how many tiles you can upload per second. To get around that you'd have to encode each frame into separate palettes like the Sonic 3d intro does, but the polygon sequence is unlikely to be FMV given its length.

    Just imagine an entire game with the graphics and speed of the 2nd part back in 1992. Even with half of this framerate would be a game changer, looks better than both versions of Virtua Racing to me.

    (I'm well aware there are probably some coding tricks involved, so actual gameplay in this way may be impossible)

    Considering I purchased remute, I'm really excited that you shared this. Thank you.

    Yeap I loaded up this demo on my Genesis last night. Amazing to really see this in action on real hardware! The 3D section isn't FMV, you can tell by the fact it goes full screen during that part. But yeah the quality of the music and samples used is outstanding! Has me really pumped for the Remute cart release as well!

    Is there a video or screenshots of the Remute cart GUI? I know it's silly but I do love me some cool menus.

    Only watched the YT vid so far, but that was bee-rilliant.

    Same way as Overdrive 2:

    Though it has a newer take on the renderer that runs faster.

    Looks like Flashback on steroids. Very, very impressive.

    Well this new renderer achieved a crazy smooth framerate, the old one was fast and smooth in parts but still choppy.
    This level of smoothness is crazy.

    I have a feeling that Flashback and Another/Out-of-this World used a similar technique, I seem to recall Burger Heineman talking about it in the video about the SNES conversion. Maybe I'm misunderstanding her video though.


    Its very impressive to see such a high framerate, every time I think I've seen everything from the hardware a new demo blows me away again.
    I had my ring penetrated on Takeshi's Castle.
