It's Complex, at least they claim to be, but they did just register today... however, I think it's real. Why? Well, it's either a real DirectX animation or a very complicated 3-D rendering - but whoever did it knew what they were doing.

I suspect it's an Xbox app, written to demo the 3-D code they would insert into the BIOS. Yes, it can certainly be done, BTW, as the Flubber uses DirectX and other standard calls as well. All it requires is the flubber to be removed and the new animation to be linked in.

I just hope that they figure out a way to get the startup to display in 480p in the process *fingers crossed*

This looks very interesting. Wonder if the Complex logo will be the only option or if you will be able to put anything on it. Im sure its still to early to tell but it would be nice if a bios tool was made that allowed you to modify it how you wanted. Also noticed the background was the same but looks like the camera angles are adjustable. Hats off to Complex in any event. beerchug.gif

It should be possible, within certain limits, to alter the model from flubber, change the pulsation of the flubber/alternative model, and change the viewing angle, which is exactly what they did.

A tool like XBTool could probably do this. Complex did do a wonderful and seamless job in replacing this data, but the more I look at it, the more I'm thinking it's more akin to a big patch, rather than all new code.

If it is a fake, someone went to a lot of trouble to fool us. beerchug.gif

I don't know why Complex would make a fake animation? That would be pretty stupid...

The expression is "couldn't" care less, not "could," what sense does "could" make?

737 viewers and 14 replys! people are curious, but don`t care unless they got an easy manual on "how it works" or a button in tha screen where it says " click me if you want to change animation"...
