The Sirius Cybernetics Corporation December 30th, 1997
.tSCc. have released a quite strange Falcon-intro called "Z Z plural Z alpha". It starts out with a long precalculation of a very strange animation. If you watch the animation carefully, and then looks at some other object, you'll be surpriced how it will look.. Voodoo..

Oxygenes new megademo, situation. December 20th, 1997
Right now (christmas time) the mainmenu, three screens from Oxygene, a few screens from Griff/EI and perhaps one from DHS are confirmed to participate in the demo.

New ST(e) demos, really?! October 1st, 1997
Well, most of you probably know about the new -BIG- ST demo coming from ST Knights.
But fewer might know what this really is to include? Well I havn't heared much, except that .tSCc. are coding a ENV-Mapping demopart for it. Llama doesn't say much but knowing his 4kb intro from Silicon it can really be a blaster!

Furthermore the poles are saying the worlds greatest ST demo is soon to be released, namley "Amok" demo from Confusions. Grey who's seen most of the parts is very excited about a 4 bitplane ENV-Mapping routine. Let's hope for a quick release of this one.

More then? Well, DHS have put some hours work into a new ST demo as well, featuring ugly-as-hell c2p routines but pretty ok framerate in advance to that. Can't say much as for now, but we're aiming at a DreamHack'97 wildcompo release. :-)
Also, the ancient DHS STe demo who won the ST competition at NAS'95 will be finsihed. Not very impressing one though, it's a demo made of the Tyranny demossystem some nights when Evil had nothing better to do :-).

Well, it doesn't end here (good eh?), Wildfire with Baggio in the lead promises their new STe demo to be "kickass". Let's hope they finish it sometime before year 3000. I've got reports so far of very fast Gouraud routines, and even faster 3D rotation-routines.

Well that's it for this time..
 
Confusions October 1st, 1997
Confusions have released their new ST demo "AMOK"!
It should be downloadable from here any day now, so keep looking!
AMOK should be one of the finest ST demos so far, with env-mapping and other new things.
 
Dreamhack October 1st, 1997
Dreamhack, this is a new party taking place in Sweden. In the LARGE hall of Kupolen/Borlänge. It's about 14000 squaremeters and place for over 2000 computers.

But unfortenly it hasn't got any Atari competitions, so why even mention it here? Well mainly becuase we're going to check it out. Perhaps future Dreamhacks could include Atari competitions as well, let''s see what the staff says after this years dhack.
 
InterJAM October 1st, 1997
Inter are arranging a new party in the beginning of october! Let's hope for a release of "Interview" now! (heh, it's allowed to dream, right?).
 
InterJam October 1st, 1997

Atari Fair October 1st, 1997
This years german Atari Fair seems to have been quite a success. Lots of new hardware and software was presented. Among them a Hades060 running in paralell with a stick-in pentium card. Milan 040 (and soon 060) was also on show.
