I too think that this second demo is slower and more jerky than the first which ran very smooth on my TNT2 32.I am still not sure what to do when I encounter things like the cat,horse etc.I press the spacebar and rings fly out but nothing happens.I look forward to being able to go into space when the full version is available but if it runs like this demo,I am not too sure I will pay for the extra.My fav bit of music is the Butterfly sequence,I hope this is on the CD!.Personally,I prefer the fist version.
Ian.

My favourite is the moon-sequence! That music is so cool! :-) But the butterfly world is also very nice!

Hey Olivier, I´am a Nintendo fan too!!!
Have you ever played EarthBound?
I think it will be great a Tr3s Lunas version for GameCube, isn´t it?

Well, for me this demo works, but with much artifacting and errors. The trees, arch, paper airplane, "the ring" girl, and spikey balls filcker and distort with each new frame. The screen jerks when I move close to objects or I am flying quickly, and sometimes the mouse is unresponsive. The regular game play doesn't even work anymore. I can spend up to ten minutes trying to get into the Butterfly world or catching the ring because I go right through it!! Plus, the blue stone totally freezes my computer.

This upsets me after going through a lot of work getting the last demo to work. I just got the last demo to work last week. I still got some artifacting, but I could live with it.

I have a 2Ghz processor, 256MB RAM, and a new, fast ATI video card. THIS PROGRAM, for all intents and purposes, SHOULD WORK!!!

The new demo finally works even on a laptop (P3, 700, S3 with 2MB) with a very basic graphics card. I didn't got the first demo to work - but the new one is really fine. No Problems, wonderful music.
I agree, the moon sequence might give an first impression of the music to come. Did anyone discover something or new music at the moutain lake. The few seconds of music we here there is very TSODE.

Bonsoir
I have had my second golden ring in the corner of the screen today in this new demo, and many beautiful lines of golden rings like necklaces and bracelets. It was beautiful as a treasure in the decors.

Best wishes

Overall I give the new Demo a thumbs up. However, it is very jerky on my system and not so smooth as the first demo. As quite a few people are experiencing this I think that something should be done about it as it could lose many potential buyers.

I also agree that the graphics are very basic and way behind the times but the combination of music and graphics is still magical.

Love the moon music :-)

For everybody who can't play Tres Lunas or hear the music... I've put a few mp3s on my site. http://hem.passagen.se/jowill

Right-click on the links and save them as mp3-files.

Enjoy!

Strixx? Still wondering how you got outside the barrier? Did you go to the space ship, or whatever it is??

Oldfield_fan... you can do it using a bug in the game of the balls.
I think I done that by this way:
I put a ball near the barrier, then I get near the ball, and if you get so near, the ball begins to make 'clinc! clinc!'... then you rotate and pass the barrier, with some luck, I think ;D.

Try this, can't confirm that.
