PHF/D-Bug/Kua/Live co-production!

We have lots of little internal utilities stashed on our hard-drives. One of which sees the light of day with a lick of paint and some added polish.
Released at Outline 2015 but not making the compos as we did not know which category to enter it in! TDE is a little MSA imager which has many advantages
over existing programs including lush Ukko graphics and industrial Kraftwerk sonics by gwEm. See readme for full docs.

Reboot releases Jaguar demo May 17th, 2015
At the Outline 2015 party, Reboot released a new demo for the Jaguar called "Cloudy with a chance of metaballs".

The demo showcases Reboots basic for the Jaguar called RaptorBasicPlus making use of the Raptor library for accessing the Jaguar custom hardware in an easy way.
Sommarhack 2015 invite May 16th, 2015
SPKR, mOdmate and 505 are back with a new Atari ST intro.

This time around it is an invitation to the forthcoming Sommarhack 2015 party in Sweden. We would like to thank the Checkpoint guys for doing this fine invite!
Effect makes quick return with new menu March 11th, 2015
Just a couple weeks off their previous Industrially Safe Demo Disk #35, Effect are back with.. Yeah you guessed it, Industrially Safe Demo Demo #36!

Features an intro with several demo parts, this is how we like it :)
Effect releases new demo menu February 24th, 2015
A menu disk packed with new and old demos was released by Effect yesterday called Industrially Safe Demo Disk #35.

The intro was coded by Bod.
Checkpoint back with new STe-release February 20th, 2015
The Checkpoint manouver to take over the Atariscene is continuing.
Today they released their first demo for STe, and it is a celebration of ten years of

The demo runs from harddrive and streams audio in realtime, also works on Falcon.
Rift for Falcon 060 January 5th, 2015
People attending Sillyventure 2014 could see the Falcon version of Rift on display on the big screen.

Today Kalms of TBL made the demo available for download. Check out the video if you do not have a Falcon to run it.
Ray / .tSCc. back with Atari TT C2P-code December 31st, 2014
After six years of vacation, Ray of .tSCc. is back.

Snippet from the sourcecode comments:

"The idea is quite simple, each pixel is split into a red and a green+blue scanline which are interlaced to comprise a 12 bit rgb scanline. Actually, we sacrifice 16*16 of the 4096 possible colors in order to map the red component into colors 0..15 without visual quality loss, however.

As a demonstration I am converting a 320x480 24 bit rgb picture which is quantized to 12 bit rgb and dithered, additionally."

Update 2015-01-02:
Sorry for bothering again, but I have updated my C2P once more. It now also contains a faster 2x2 version and a little blob demo showing how this can be used in a realtime setting.

New HTML-mag by CiH December 20th, 2014
CiH writes:

Xmas is coming, CiH is getting fat. It is that time of year for another Mag!

Or perhaps not? This one is dedicated to the glories of Sillyventure past
and present, with a bias towards last years event, but we are also celebrating the crusty memories of the year 2000. We are even bang up to date with a party report for this year!

Anyway, a little light reading for those quiet moments when the family have
gone to bed and left you alone, Merry Chrimbo, Atari Scene!

Sillyventure 2014 downloads December 7th, 2014
The releases from Sillyventure 2014 are starting to arrive.

We are switching things up a bit from now on. The old download page will be gone, and instead we will rely on Demozoo for getting the files. They are much faster at putting up stuff than we will ever be, so it felt pointless to do the same thing, just lagging behind.

However, we will still try to do videos of as many releases as we can, a few are already online.
