Final Whack by unconed Final Whack by unconed
Important: Final Whack requires AVS 2.8 or newer, which comes with Winamp 5. To view, start the 'Advanced Visualisation Studio' plug-in, and right-click the display. Choose Final Whack.

Hopefully I will have caught you by surprise by releasing this pack. I said there wouldn't be a Whacko AVS VII, and in a way it's still true: this pack was created with a different mindset.
Whacko AVS was about making your eyes jump out of their sockets, Final Whack is about me doing what I want with AVS and creating really weird, wicked presets. Maybe the end result is somewhat similar to Whacko AVS, but I still think there's a difference.

Some presets will be quite slow, some will be extremely simple. You probably won't like most of them, but that's okay for me. If it makes you think 'This is not AVS anymore', then good: I don't like blending in homogenously :).

If you thought it can't be done, Final Whack by ~unconed is proving the opposite. The yet best reason to upgrade to Winamp 5. ( Featured by yathosho )

Yep, nothing more to say here. I tried to fav it twice but ended up having it removed from my fav's. So I faved it a third time, but that's ok also. Definitely the best AVS-pack EVER!

VJ Chmutov is my (most likely forever-lasting) favourite of that pack. But all others are gorgeous too.

Now if only there was a way to get rid of the incredibly annoying preset changes. Sometimes I enjoy watching just one for a long time, but this doesn't allow it. Great visuals, bad available setups.

You need to read the AVS FAQ. Or just be more explorative with your programs: computers don't bite.

You can turn preset changing off easily.

I mean when its installing Final Whack. It comes up with the 'Random Delay' part (set at 10sec initially). I've tried everything to completely shut that off, even clicking off the box under it, "Random". Still cycles through the different avs. Its just a minor thing really, but its like that little thorn stuck to your skin when picking up a great looking rose - annoying, but livable.

That means you checked "Settings" in the installer. If you're not able to turn it off, something's wrong with your winamp. You are the only one experiencing this problem;

luv the pack, sorry for asking before reading in your comments
"you may display these presets as a projection at parties, raves or clubs without credit reference on-screen"
I display the presets with creditreference next friday, I do a little bit in avs too, but more painting, Friday I have to fill around 8 hours. It's an absolute pleasure for me to stream your stuff there, kinda trippy event
my playlist isn't ready yet I use Winamp 5.02, have around 40 presets now (just 2 of them are mine) think I need a few more
thanks so much for final whack, the best I ever saw, I'm curious about friday, never saw it that big before

Truly amazing things in here. The Intro is cool. While examining the setup it took me a while to realize that there is no Bitmap at all!

My favs are: Seismogrid, Daedalus, Goldie, Phoenix, Silk Strings, Trip and Drive and Tokyo Bullet.

I also loved most of the others. Only thing is that I whished a different coloring for some of them, i.e. Fiber Optics which needs a more "technical" coloring I think.

But overall a +fav for shure...

With this pack you continue to amaze me and many other AVSers out there with your creativity and everything else in your presets.

I really like the improvement of

Neon Coaster - How the hell did you manage to make all that moving neon advertisements!!! Very cool ....

Insane Architect - No longer restricted to straight lines . . .

Silky Rings , Daedalus were my favorites. I like how you captured the neonicity of everything.

Seismogrid was something I thought was something that never could be done. It was just sooooo smooth and droolicious!!!

Fibre Optics - It was really really shiny!!! =D

Elevation - Finally a preset that takes my mind off 'Going Down' by El-Vis.

Don't Trip And Drive - Kind of like resembles your preset with that Mars thing in Whacko6 . . . Now that you've brought it into 3D form . . . It's all good. Real good.

Around The World - Next time you update it. Add my country!!! I'm in Brunei!!! Heheh ;)

Overall . . . everything was EXTREMELY good. It came out somewhere near with 'PreLoaded' by El-Vis . . . but I have no problem choosing which I like!!! :+fav:

nemoorange: I understand what you mean, but I think you and I are just very different persons... coding /is/ a way to express my creativity. There is still a lot of 'dreaming' involved in thinking out an effective implementation of something. Just like something can be elegantly designed, exactly so can something be elegantly engineered.
When I talk about how I managed to solve a particular technical aspect, it is for me no different from talking about how someone else might talk about creating a nice visual composition.

Very few presets started from a pure idea... e.g. when I did seismogrid, the idea was a watery grid surface, but I immediately started thinking about how to code/implement it. The two presets you mention as being 'creative' are very technical as well: building up the dancing girl took a lot of work, and that zeppelin is deceptive in its cute approach ;).

But whether or not I focus on the technical aspect in the comment is not relevant in my opinion: talking about how something looks is pretty useless when 99% of the time, the preset's visuals speak for itself. The technical aspect is something I can talk about easily, and which I think is interesting for other AVSers.

I'm really sorry dude. If I didn't get a job I would have done you a remix. I also would have noticed WA5 is released, I probably would have finished J¹º too... nevermind eh?

Seismogrid is fantastic, easily my favorite of the bunch. Loads of quality throughout this pack and lots of tricks for me to shamelessly steal and recycle for my own purposes.

I'm not one for mile long comments. Great work as always.

Of course, very impressive work. Lots of spectacular visuals.

Sometimes, I see that you got more concerned with an idea than with the final visualization, but maybe that was your goal all along while creating this pack. The comments you included with these presets often focus soley on the technical aspect & rarely speak about the creativity involved. I am very curious to see what you would make when you just forgot about all the code & math stuff, & just focused on creating something you saw in your head. I think presets like "Come Fly with Me" & " License to Chill" are a representation of such a creation. As with the other visualizations, they are beautiful, but do they really show the power of your imagination?

In the end, I am in no way dissapointed in this pack. I am really enjoying " Fiber Optics" "Silk Strings" and " Seismogrid." But I will always wonder what someone with your ability could create if he spent more time dreaming and less time coding.

Then that means that it wasn't installed to the correct folder - search your computer for it - once you find it just copy it to the winamp/plugins/avs directory - make sure you get the .ape and picture files too

Honestly...
What is this Winamp 5 that I've been hearing about?
If you look at Winamp.com it features just Winamp 2 and Winamp 3.
Winamp 3 being the crappier of the two.
