Noise 2011 December 23rd, 2010

Greetings Atarians, from 8-bit to Jaguar!

It has been 5 years since our Noise Easter demo party was held. Though number of visitors wasn't counted in hundreds, we have really enjoyed it even as organizers and judging from party reports by our visitors, it seems it was success in their eyes as well.

Nearly five years have passed. We could attend many great parties during that period, be it in Czech Republic, Germany, Netherlands, Poland or Slovakia. And after each of such party, we've asked ourselves: really it is so crazy to organize own party again?

So we've made this humble website: http://noise.atari.sk to know your interest. Just click if you would be interested or not... you'll find here also photos, reports and released stuff from the 2006 edition.

Looking forward to your feedback!

 
SNDH archive v3.2 released December 17th, 2010
64 new/updated SNDH files (157 tunes).

Well the SNDH archive gets a winter smattering of tunes to keep you warm and toastie on these cold evenings.

The archive now contains a mighty 6464 tunes! An apt total for a release I would say.

I've delved once again ripping some old tunes plus we are bang up-to-date with cracking hot stuff by !Cube, 505,Tomchi, DMA-SC, Yerzmyey Tao and Divag.

A 'new' composer worthy of a mention is Jean Baudlot who was prolific in the busy ST days giving tunes to classics such as Future Wars, Operation Wolf and Cruise for a Corpse.

As usual we bring a few exclusives, most notable is the ultra rare Mad Max conversion of Rob Hubbard's Skate or Die!

Finally I found a crop of old Tri-Sound songs which you'll find in the unknown folder. Please contact the SNDH team if you can identify the composer.

The next SNDH update will be quite different, you'll see why on release!

Welcome to archive twelve from the NO FRAGMENTS series. You will find here a lot of textbased ascii mags, cheats and lots of atari related docfiles. Like the last few discs this collection does not claim to be complete. It is "just" what I had found during the last years on my work on the NO FRAGMENTS series. There's not much more to say for now. Have fun with the archive. If there is some stuff missing or damaged, then please inform me or send me acurate versions and I will collect it for an update.

Dear atari sceners splitted all over the globe (and beyond)!
Even if some people might think, that organizing Atari-only parties in 21st century is a real "Silly Venture" we say, who cares about labels; let's meet once again and prove them how "Silly" we are! :)

After 2 editions of SV and reached x-perience, I have the pleasure of inviting you once again to the 3rd edition of the party which will be held in Winter 2010, from 10th to 12th day of December (it's possible to come one day earlier, though).

The party is dedicated to all Atari platforms -

Beginning on A2600, through XL/XE, ST/STe, TT and Falcon 030/CT060 series, ending on the Jaguar and Atari clones.

Do You still feel the Atari heartbeat... ?

Would like to share your passion with others... ?

My friend from the "good old days" dug out some pics from when he visited Fried Bits back in... hmm not even sure, I think we were about 16 so maybe 93? Dunno if thats correct but anyway! I didn't know what to do with them so I thought i'd scan them and fire them your way - perhaps someone might enjoy looking at old blurry snaps of old demo parties ;)

DHS releases compofiller at Sommarhack July 4th, 2010
Yeap we've been working on and off for a compo filler demo for Sommarhack 2010.
We didn't manage to iron out everything in time, so what you get is a party version with bugs, too much hardware requirement and disk space.

We might do a final version sometime later..
 
Invizibles forgotten screen released at Sommarhack July 4th, 2010
At the Nordic Atari Show we met one of Invizibles graphicsmen from way back in time (now more known for his Falcon and Jaguar graphics under the handle Bear). He showed us an old screen that was never released we agreed that showing it in the Sommarhack 2010 compo would be a good idea.

CiH releases CD-ROM May 8th, 2010
CiH writes:
Howdy doody, it's that "thing" I've muttered about for months. It's finally been released shortly after the Outline 2010 Party. This is the 'Random Images' CD Rom collection for the Atari ST, STE, Mega STE, TT and Falcon.

This ISO image contains a shedload of 'random images' lovingly converted to Targa format for easy viewing on these machines. There are also a bunch of equally random animated GIF files included as well for your enjoyment with some tools to view them on an Atari MC68K series near you. It is MS-DOS format, and Atari ST CD-ROM drive friendly.

This is not really a 'demoscene' release, although it has been shown at the Outline 2010 demo party, it namechecks a popular thread from Pouet.net, it has used some material from that thread, and its companion, 'Random Animated GIF's', and it also uses some material more directly from that source in the form of logo's and the tiny 16 x 16 avatar GIF files.

Glad that's clear..

This is is the culmination of over a year's worth of net-grubbing and more or less careful collecting and picture sorting activity and comes to you from CiH at the Outline Party in April 2010.

CiH - 7.5.10 - The hangover morning after the UK election night!

DHS releases Sommarhack 2010 invite May 3rd, 2010
A little bit delayed, but here's our invite intro for Sommarhack 2010.

You need an STe with 2MB or more to run it. Emulators will have various succes. Unfortenly there is a code/shifter sync issue on Mega STe (at least ours) which prevents it from working fully on such a machine.
 
BiTS releases intro at Outline May 2nd, 2010
A little intro from BiTS was released at Outline 2010 for the ST.

Lotek Style of .tSCc. writes:
Dear atarians.

Welcome to archive eleven from the NO FRAGMENTS series. You will find here almost all releases of the last few years atari related demoparties. I also added some updates from previous years. I had to leave out animations from the outline parties due to space problems. Also I had to juggle a bit with a few other files and left out several party photos which you will see soon online.

Not much more to say for now as I want to finish this thing off for Outline. If there is some stuff missing or damaged, then please inform me or send me acurate versions and I will collect it for an update.

 
SNDH Archive v3.1 released April 30th, 2010
Grazey of PHF writes:
103 new or fixed SNDH files (156 tunes).

It's Outline again!

So once again a couple of months before the party my D-Bug activities take a back seat and music ripping comes to the fore!

Again it's a real mixed bag with all the tunes from the recent 20 year old STE demo and the show stopping tunes from last years Checkpoint demo.

We still like to throw a spanner in the works so I've started ripping ancient tunes from Automation menus 1-30, I'm sure you'll look forward to these!

There's also a rare Mad Max tune featuring one of his early digi-drum tunes. Speaking of Mad Max expect some very rare unreleased stuff soon as well!

Thanks must go to those musicians who keep us up to date with their work, so big thanks to Cerror, 505 and Ultrasyd!

No Fragments #10 released April 27th, 2010
Lotek Style of .tSCc. writes:
Welcome to archive ten from the NO FRAGMENTS series. This archive covers DISK MAGAZINES for ST and FALCON. You can find over 700 issues of various atari diskmags on this CD-ROM. The release was already planned some years ago but I was not able to find some issues of various diskmags. Instead of letting the project die I am releasing the current status of the archive.

I regret that this isn't a 100% complete archive but as I mentioned in previous issues my time and motivation are running out. Also the low response these days doesn't make me feel that many people who are still out there acknowledge what I am doing or really need these archives anymore. Maybe I am wrong but this is my impression.

If there is some stuff missing or damaged, then please inform me or send me acurate versions and I will collect it for an update. If I ever will make one. I doubt the relevance of CD-ROM archives is really still there in the year 2010. The future lies in online web collections like Atarimania. If you still feel the passion you should stay atari but if not it is time to move on.

Atari ST MOD compo February 23rd, 2010
Yerzmyey of H-PRG writes:

ATARI ST MOD COMPO!

Name of the party: "Atari Headquarters"
Time of the party: 9-11 April 2010.
If the Krakow city is near to You - then just come. :)

Well, we think that Atari ST should not be forgotten.

So there will be a standard 4-chnls MOD compo for Atari ST, on the party. (YM / AY chip, no STe!!).
Compo-machine: Atari 520 STfm 1Mb.

You can send any of Your old MODs but only not-published before ones.

Music can be played from two programs:

DigiComposer and
ProTracker ST

Notes:
Seems like DigiComposer doesn't read "jump to pattern" command.
Seems like ProTracker ST doesn't read "tremolo" command.

The best would be a MOD about 200Kb or smaller.
You can make MODs up to about 380Kb, I suspect, but REMEMBER that ONLY ProTracker ST can play such big MODs (well, no "tremolo" command then, but there's still a possibility to make a twice faster MOD to achieve the tremolo/quaver effect).

*******************
You can make Your MOD on any machine but PLEASE TEST YOUR MOD on Atari ST (or emul) on both trackers before sending it to me and check out if everything's
OK.
Pick up some tracker and INFORM ME about what editor You chosen.
*******************

Send Your MODs to: yerzmyey AT interia.pl
DEADLINE is: 7 April 2010.

 
Outline registration open February 23rd, 2010
Havoc of Lineout writes:

As of today, registration and ticket payment details on our website have gone public. If you intend to visit the party, please register. To secure a sleepingplace in one of our comfy sleepingrooms, make your payment as soon as possible- only owners of the first 100 paid tickets who express their desire for a bed via the registration form will be granted access to this area.

The maximum number of visitors is limited to 130. We expect there will once again be a number of people who prefer to sleep in tents or at hotels, so hopefully noone will be forced to sleep under their tables. However, should anyone find themselves in such unfortunate circumstances come partytime, compensation of any kind will regretfully not be possible.

Just to remind you, last year we had well over a hundred visitors, many of whom made their intentions to return this year know through various channels. We rely on you, the Atari demoscene community, to preserve Outline's signature atmosphere. If there is anything we can do to assist you, please feel free to contact us using one of the options described on our website.

See you in Eersel!
