Greetings Again,

I finished the Amiga Boing-style demo for SGI. This finished version has better sound and an old-school intro. It runs with sound on my 300MHz R5k O2 and Octane, I'd be interested what other machines it runs on, particularly any Indy configurations. Please leave a reply if you try it. On my O2 it uses ~16-22% CPU. More if I hold down "u" for unthrottled. Tarred and Gzipped on my O2, your mileage may vary of course.

Cheers,

KB

I ran it on Indigo2 IMPACT R10k, working fine (y) CPU below 20%.
Just one little thing, when starting I get this msg on the console: "ERROR: Could not load in KABoingReadMe.txt"

Hmm, so no takers with an Indy huh? If you try it please let me know what hardware you used. Here's something silly, I wonder if it would run in MAME and if so, what frame rate.

I will test it for you tomorrow on my Indy, although that one runs IRIX 5.3..
I guess it needs to be recompiled to run.

and in MAME I think it will be just a slide show if it even starts. I no longer have my MAME setup.. it was just way too slow, forget 3D.

Thank you Flex, But can’t explore other versions, I hardly have any free time as it is. Funny about MAME, yeah maybe it would be a PowerPoint!

Very Nice Work! :)

Here's KABoing running on my Octane 2: (Dual R14K@600MHz, V12)



I tried it on my Indy R4000, and it's unfortunately not supported by the R4000 architecture!!!

My R5000 Indy's unfortunately 1500KM away! :(
