I am exploring new territories with OSDM and created my first multi-part demo production with it.
Before this demo I started to explore multi-parts designs in my intros. The first OSDM intro of mine that had truely multiple parts was my 2009 holidays release called "Mosaik". It was followed by two additional multi-parts intros called "Starfall" and "Balls" and eventually lead to the creation of this demo.
I did not use the mega-demo feature of the program but created the flow logic for the individual parts via OSDM script. Because of this, it is not possible to skip forward to the next part. If you press ESC, you quit the whole thing. But the whole demo is very short, about 3 minutes only and consists of 3 main parts with the first and last part each split into 2 parts also. All in all 5 parts, depending on how you want to count it.
I tried my best to synchronize the effects with the classic Phenomena tune. I also had to tweak the tune itself, because it was composed for a much longer demo. The demo timing works fine on my machine, but I could not test really if it also works properly on other machines. I hope so. If it does not, I am sorry.
At first I had planned to use 3 individual tunes for the demo, but the current version of OSDM does not allow the fading in/out of music. I only can do a "hard" switch from one tune to another. I tried a few things but it never sound right. I guess tweaking all the tunes to fade in and out as desired would have done the trick, but I am not familar enough with any tracker program to do that. My tweaks are going seldom beyond the removal of patterns or exchange of samples.
Update June 2010: There is now also a full-screen version of the demo available for download. The full-screen version also features now things like the fading out of the music at the end and automatically quiting the demo without the need to press any key anymore.
