BlaBla September 2nd, 1999

DSPMOD September 1st, 1999
Yep, again a bug has been fixed. :-) YM Players didn't sound after running DSPMOD31/32/33, so here is a version which is a little bit more friendly and restores sound back fine. Devpac/Assemble sources.
Cream September 1st, 1999
After you saw Creams ripoff of Avenas sono-demo at the Silliconvention 1997, you were quite sure they wouldn't try this again, as well frankly, it didn't really live up to the original. But now they try again. Well almost. Or, kind of. Candyman has been fixing Sonolum(etc) and the Binliner previews to run with VGA monitors (100Hz). The Sono... needs the original distribution of the demo to function.

This is the last chance to have charts in UCM16. I know it's damm late but I need them to complete UCM16 and I need at least 40 votes before Friday 8pm.

Show me you can be quick and smart and that you are interested in the revival of UNDERCOVER.

Send it back to thanxx a lot
Cream August 24th, 1999
The Creamies are back. They have written a modular player for many Amiga chipmusicformats (hippel, huelsbeck etc). They released a demo to show how it sounds. Some of the most common Hippel ST-songs but in Amiga format is playing. There is a very fine remake of the Thalion intro and a cool resetscreen as well.
Escape August 18th, 1999
The "plasma" Whip! plugin is now available.
TRiO August 18th, 1999
TRiO have become porting mad. And it's a good madness. :) No more than four popular PC games have been ported to TT and Falcons. The games are "Doom", "Heretic", "Hexen" and "Quake". Please note that you need at least some Fastram to have the games nearly playable. Quake would need 040/060 for the intense FPU use (crawwwwls on a ct2). All games need extra datafiles (wads and other) from the original PC games. Shareware demos should be available on ftp sites.

The Exceptions July 24th, 1999

Error In Line roundup April 8th, 1999
Here is a breif summary of our Error In Line journey.

It all began in October/November with the competition we had here, where people could vote for the best partyname. We received alot of suggestions, but as far as I know, none of them were "Error In Line". After the name was set, there was an invite from CP/ESC for the ST, and numerous textfiles around. The hype was slowly getting higher and higher. A bit into 1999 everyone was more or less convinced this "was it" for 1999. We released a little EIL intro for the Falcon to keep the interest for EIL at top.
At this time I felt a little sorry for the organisers, there was alot of hype and everyone seemed to expect nothing but a perfect party. Time went by, and the EIL homepage got one sponsor after the other added. We in the Swedish travel team had setup a mailinglist and was talking how the heck to get down there. In the end most of us decided upon going with car to Gothenburg, then ferry from Gothenburg to Kiel, and last drive approx 600km from Kiel to Dresden. All that went pretty smoothly except for a bitchy hangover I somehow got at the ferry ;-).

Next.. find the partyplace. This wasn't the easiest task! We drove around Dresden for about 45min until we found the place. 505/CP sat at the entrance, we recognised eachother directly as we've been trading pornpics of eachother earlier (ehmm..).
Entering the partyplace... yes this was a real experience. Not a single time I have seen a computer party held in such enviornment! It was at a basement of a student house, with small rooms all over the place which were made like "caves" and bars everywhere. After the first "chock" of seeing this *COOL* place, I found Energizer/Lazer who was keeping the Swedish room under control :). Then we went back to get our packing, and it seems like our parking wasn't welcomed by the gardener or something, becuase we had taken a "shortcut" over the grass (whistle...). After a turbo-unloading of the car, we began carrying stuff downstairs, and to my surprice the organisers HELPED carrying the stuff. This was definitly not what usually happens. Megathanks for that help! Next was decrunching the equipent so we could start coding again, it had been nearly 40 hours without coding and most of us seemed a bit shaky. While rushing to get the Falcon running I had already shaked hand with a dozen people I've met on #atariscne IRC channel. It seemed everyone was there! But man that was wrong, not even half was.. they arrived in the next hours! The rooms and corridors quickly filled up, and in the end there was not many seats left. In our swedish room, we had computers enough for a whole platoon, and we sat tight and nicely together ;).
We had brought food, in the belief this would be quite the same as FB3 or Siliconvention (eg, everything closed..). But no, it seems like Dresden isn't so obsessed in closing everything as Bremen is, and the organisers had Pizza and Chineese orders all days! This was totally super. They also sold cold Cola and Beer in the bar (which was located in our room.. hehe, perfect!). Talk about Pizza - they were clearly eatable, not tops and not crap. But they had something fun, namely the "party pizza". Anyone meeting the swede gang know many of us are over the 100kg line in weight, and we want lots of food :) However these party pizzas fulfilled all our dreams! Size of a half bed or something! Nam nam, baggio and Havoc (both big dudes!) got two meals each from one pizza.

The party went on, and people were having a good time, talking and exchanging coding tips. There wasn't anyone behaving badly as far as I know, which again proves the Atarians are friendly chaps all over. After a while I had met about everyone, except the "mysterious" Defjam which left the scene just some weeks before EIL. When I finally talked to him, I didn't recognise the Defjam I've met on IRC at all. This guy was in the best coding-mood one can be. And he decided to go home and complete his "Sure Trip" demo. Damn good to have him back! :-)
The days went by, and the sleeping/shower place was great too, when I were taking a shower on sunday morning I got company! A nice nude (~20 years old) girl came in! Wowness, this doesn't happen all the time :-)). She didn't seem the slightest emabarrased and just tripped into the shower. Maybe they don't care so much in the east, who knows. But it was a nice surprice after seeing Baggio and Deez for three days ;)

Sunday night was compotime. This was sort of interesting. They showed the MSB "Breath demo" first, and it was really good. Then our demo came on, and it seemed they messed up the projector just in time for that, becuase everything was more or less white. Poor Edo didn't get his pictures shown nearly as they should be. Next was Defjams demo, now they turned the brightness down (he he, tactical move perhaps ? ;)). But it really didn't matter they could have had brightness on max for defjams demo as well, it would have won anyway. This is the best thing ever done on the ST. Totally brilliant. And he actually thought about quitting?! Bahh! Suretrip demo rules! After this pleasure they showed another demo, from Stax! I had no idea they planned one. And it was also a GREAT one. Mapped wolf3d worlds, mode7 stuff and so on. Incredible things. Then it went on to Falcon demos. I wasn't expecting much from anyone, except FUN that has been saying they have routs that outclasses their old demo (which was a good one by itself!). I saw some 3d at Earx CT2 Falcon, and it was wonderful fast. However, at the compo, something went wrong and the demo wasn't showed as it should. And later on, it went even worse, they tried to show the DHS preview-crap demo. And it all failed, after 3-4 tries I left the room starting to tidy-up the stuff I had so we could leave rather early next morning. After approx 30 mins I heard the music from our Falcondemo going and I applaused for myself "wow they must be great technicans capable of pressing a number to choose rgb" ;-). To my surprice there were applauses in the comporoom after our demo had been shown. Oh well, it might have been for some other reason I thought. Then I met 505 and he said they were showing the Cobra Falcon demo, and he said I probably should go and see it. I ended up beside Mr.Pink on a weak bench which made some worrying sounds when I stood on it. But that's life when you're in the 100+ club ;). And now I saw some 3d object from Cobra. Nice one! Except that it could just as well had been a 1-fps slideshow from harddisk. From what I could see, it gets the #1 price in "slowest falcondemo" competition. I asked grey if they used 040 Falcons or something when coding, but no.. They used ordinary ones! Maybe they drink much vodka over there and see everything in motionblur? Hehe.. anyway, after this it was up the 9 (or 10) stairs to get some sleep. Early in the morning I woke up, took a shower (no babe this time!) and then went down packing things. Unfortenly they had the prize ceremony just when I had to pack, so I missed the thing. After about half an hour someone (I think it was TAM/Toys) met me and he said "you won a CT2". "Bahh" I thought and went on. Then I met Joe Cool, and he said "Congratualtions". Now I was really worried.. "did that crap thing actually win?!". And yes, it did. Loke had brought the price into our room and there it was, the brand new CT2 card. Yippe-yo! We also took some sort of prize in 128byte compo (2nd or third I would guess). Then we had to leave, and the trip back home went smoothly for about half of us. The other half got stuck in Swedish customs (ha ha ha) ;)

A few days after the party I can't think of much that could have been done better. Sure the videoprojector could have done a better job and the Germans should smoke alot less. But as a whole I liked EIL _very_ much. It will be damn hard to make something equally good again. Probably not possible. So mega thanks to the organisers, and to the helpful ladies at the bar which always wanted to chat :).
Error In Line April 6th, 1999
So, one of the best Atari parties EVER has ended. It was one hell of a good thing, and had lots of stuff in the competitions. There will be a more detailed report here later, but for now have a good time enjoying the current releases!

Only five days to go! Rumours of several ST and Falcon demos have been circulating. On the ST side, Mystic Bytes, Cobra, Cream, Wildfire, Loud and DHS have announced competition contributions! On the Falcon- side there is more "hush hush" but it seems we will be treated with a few ones there as well, including a new demo from FUN!
Maggie March 27th, 1999
Better late than never they say. And sometimes they even say "worth waiting for". Was Maggie 27 worth waiting for? Download and find out! Pink and company has finally managed to release it!
Error In Line March 24th, 1999
There are a few new things on the competition-side of EIL that has been cleared out lately. First of all, there is a very fine price in the Falcon competition, namely a Centrubo II card.

And, there is now a possibility for those that want to join the compo, but feel they don't have time to complete the demo in time for EIL. They can compete with the unfinished production, and then have two weeks (April 16'th the latest) to send the final copy in, or the staff will release the compo-preview. This is good news as there is a better chance more people can join the competitions!
Dune March 20th, 1999
After a looong loong wait, Dune finally releases their "Paradise" dentro! Runs with ST/Falcon machines.
New Beat March 18th, 1999
Thomas of New Beat have released the first preview of "Flex Trax". A new soundtracker for the Falcon. It supports normal .mod 4/8 channels with additional DSP effects without breaking compatibility to old players (well hopefully ;)).
Worst ever March 14th, 1999

mOd February 20th, 1999
Super-graphican mOd left .tSCc. to freelance instead. So if you're a coder, hurry to up to order jobs from him ;)
Oxygene February 20th, 1999
Finally Leonard has released the Nostalgic-o-demo for ST/STe machines. The demo has a very well-choosen name. Almost all screens are in a very old fashion, that has been seen countless of times before.

A few parts stand out from the other, the intro especially. It's a really awesome 3d-world (bsp-tree, like the eko-system on falcon), too bad we didn't get more of this. There is also a quite nice texturemap/envmap screen from Overlanders, but doesn't come near the efforts by .tSCc. in framrate and size.

Also, cream has a screen that demonstrates their SID Emulator and plays the Union-demo original SID songs. The rest of the screens are as said above, old stuff, maybe a bit optimized.

Error In Line February 9th, 1999
A new Error In Line invite intro is released, this time falcon only, made by yours truly (tm).

Sid Sound Designer February 9th, 1999
As a lot of people have been asking about Sid Sound Designer replay routines that actually work (what a revolutionary feature :)). I've decided to upload a version that is heavily bugfixed. It was planned to be included in the fortcoming "useful routines archive" that will be coming online in a while, but what the hell, if people needs it now let them have it. It plays SID-Wave on all three channels and works with ST/STe/MSTe/TT030/PAK030/Falcon/CenturboII with or without Fastram. I belive the basic of these routines are from Synergy, then changed alot by MC/AnimalMine (for the SSD editor). Defjam then ripped the replay from SSD 3.5-preview, and bugfixed it. However, FroST/Loud bugfixed it even more (Falcon IDE was resetted with Defjams version) so now it seems to be really safe to use. The package consist of a binary module, an example source how to call it and one example song.
Avena February 9th, 1999
Tat has put up a webpage where he will put the sourcecodes for his Binliner demo. Currently a few preview executables can be downloaded.

Aggression January 6th, 1999
So finally Aggression releases Motion. Well, actually not, it's 'only' the sourcecodes and screen-by-screen binarys. No multipart put together demo unfortenly. But at least you can get an imagination what Motion would have been like.
Cobra January 6th, 1999
Cobra has released a new Falcon demo at the "Last Party".
SND Player January 5th, 1999
At last, SND Player 1.00 has been completed. What took it so long? No idea, but probably mainly lazyness and busyness with other projects.

New fakecrew from Holland.. called NUN! Yes, a bunch of nuns have created a Ataricrew. Erm.. :) They released their first intro at IMP8000.
IMParty 8 January 4th, 1999
IMParty 8 ended today, and the party was a success. This once again proove that small parties outclass the larger ones easily. Most coding creativity was seen from Wiztom/aggression and Thomas/New Beat. Thomas new Falcontracker called "Flex Track" is getting near a preview release, it looks very promising and includes some new concepts to trackers. More about Wiztoms activites a bit down. About 40 people attended to imp, including the new 'Wildfire' coder 'Zounds' which seems to be a bright and cool dude, both baggio and zounds are confident of having a st demo ready for release at EIL. Spice Boys was present at IMP and they made a modcompile with help of their new member "The Giant" from holland ;-). Opus and Fuzzkid released the last ever "CPU Love" demo during IMP and a new team from netherlands released a fakeintro as well.
More about IMP8, photos etc will be announced later. But put in short: it was fun!!
