I'm having my fifteen minutes of fame so i just thought i'bragg it here :)
In short, Heaven 7 is a stunning raytraced 64K intro from Exceed dating from 2000.
The other night i had the idea of hacking it so it can be seen in very high resolution on today's PCs.

You can read the story here:

(the two highest resolutions only work in windowed mode (and you need a big enough desktop) )

Thank you very much!
'twas almost one year ago already,time flies :)

As it turned out, thanks to my foundings, me and another guy made versions  of h7 supporting high resolution modes (we both finally got the original sources from stephen/exceed who contacted picard if i remember well ) and it's that other version that has been archived
here on pouet.net , it's quite hidden, you've got to click on "making of" which redirects on this page at exceed, where you can download the file by clicking "heaven seven - special holiday edition with high-resolutions" .

that's it :)

Thanks, I tried it on my laptop with a 16:10 widescreen. Worked like a charm in native res, with no distortion.

Lol, I found that some of my own demoscene-related productions of ages ago have similar problems.
Some of them use DDraw with some 320x200 mode, which isn't always available anymore.
And the DDraw DLL that I used for fullscreen display in Croissant 9... it has 1024x768 hardcoded as the highest resolution it can handle. Things can go quite wrong when you try higher resolutions than that :)
