    These are so small because all they contain is the code required to generate the world on your computer. They're not like .avi, .mov etc which have all the pre-rendered frames saved in the file.

    these are amazing i cant belive that these are not very big with the render quality and the length of these i would expect a higher file size but the quality and the file size is amazing

    todge

    i dont know why you get the DX error they are only .exe files so they should play automatically all i can think of is that your graphics card cannot support the movies

    DX errors can occur because it's DirectX that's used to render the files.

    Chances are Toocool4's graphics card does support DirectX and the errors they're caused by a bug.

    There used to be competitions for this kind of thing, back when DOS ruled. People would see how much graphically and musically they could cram into conventional memory. Some of the demo's (as they were called) were very impressive, and I seem to remember an annual event called 'Assembly' (I think) which showcased this kind of stuff.

    I’m trying to view it on my work computer at the moment, I will try it when I get home. Thanks for the tip hbdgaz.
