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.

The winning demo from Very Important Party 2014 has been a bit delayed, but today finally No Extra released the "0ompa" demo for Atari STe machines.
 
SNDH Editor v1.12 out October 30th, 2014
grazey/PHF writes:

Well after over 7 years SNDH-Ed makes it to version 1.12. This release includes the very latest fixed Sid Sound Designer replayer which supports the portamento command. Source code for the new player is included within the package plus DMA-SCs tune with which you can hear the musical difference (30
second mark).

 
STj v1.50 released October 5th, 2014
gwEm/PHF writes:

It is time for a new release of my SNDH DJing software. The main new feature this time is a mode for controlling Digital Vinyl System (DVS) programs like Serator, Traktor etc in relative mode using a generated timecode. The code is a stereo signal, and as such only STe is supported for DVS.

 
.tSCc. releases Hex Pistols on Falcon September 27th, 2014
Insane of .tSCc. is keeping the Falcon busy by porting Amiga demos with sources available.

This time around it 'Hex Pistols' from Fit. An Amiga 060-demo released at the Motorola Inside party in 2005.

The Falcon port is made with help of Atari SDL by Data/Trio and Dspmod by Bitmaster. Just like Stercus Accidic it supports the Super Videl for improved performance and DVI/HDMI output.
 
Stercus Accidit ported to Falcon September 18th, 2014
The Amiga demo from 2006 by Fit is now available on the Falcon as well.

Insane of .tSCc. ported it over to Falcon 060 using the latest version of SDL by Data/TRiO and Dspmod by Bitmaster. The new SDL supports SuperVidel to avoid chunky to planar conversion so there should be a bit faster frame rate there.

Unfortunately I don't have a HDMI/DVI frame grabber so the video is from a normal Videl output.
 
Checkpoint releases new Jaguar demo August 10th, 2014
A bit unexpected, Checkpoint entered the Evoke demo competition with a Jaguar entry. It's an invite for the Morphonic Lab 13 later in the autumn and is a quite long invitation with numerous effects.

Code by lsl, music by balog, graphics by mOdmate, 3D-graphics by Excellence in Art and more.

Checkpoint tells us tu run it on a real Jaguar or it will run at very wrong speeds. The video capture is correct and from the real deal (thanks to SH3/Reservoir Gods).
 
Silly Venture 2014 Falcon invite released July 10th, 2014
This came as a bit of a surprise. Dune just released a new Falcon invitation for the forthcoming Silly Venture 2014 party.

With Mic doing the graphics, things are unlikely to go wrong. And no change this time around, great pixels all around together with code by Thadoss and a streaming soundtrack by Dma-Sc.


July 25, 2014 UPDATE

Thadoss released a new version of the intro. It now features the correct soundtrack as well as smoother scrollings and fading. It will also work on 060 machines.
 
New ST intro from Vulkteamet July 7th, 2014
A short notice about Vulkteamet that once again released an ST-intro at Hackerence summer.

This time around it's a one-man-show with everything being created by Blind-io.
 
SNDH archive v4.4 released July 2nd, 2014
To coincide with Sommarhack we update the SNDH archive to v4.4.

This release has a very Dutch theme, mainly due to Lowlife of Hotline
stumbling over some long lost musical goodies. Thanks to him you will find
very rare tunes by Scavenger, ISO, Dr Beat, ENS and EVE. Continuing the Dutch
mood we finally complete the Lotus collection with all the tunes from the
Synth Dream 2 demo.

 
Sommarhack releases up! June 29th, 2014
Just a quickie to inform you all that all the Sommarhack 2014 contributions are now online.

- Six songs (where three are ACE Tracker)
- Four pictures
- Four demos/intros

All of the entries have recordings so everyone can enjoy.


We'd like to thank everyone who visited this years Sommarhack. We had people coming from six different countries with only 25 participants total, you guys rock! Weather could have been better. Actually A LOT better. But rain and cold = more Atari, so we shouldn't complain :) See you again next year!

 
ACE Tracker v2.00 released June 27th, 2014

The Lost Boys back at Outline?! June 1st, 2014
So as you know, Outline 2014 have been going over the weekend.
As usual we try to collect the Atari releases made at the compos and around.

First up we have something rather huge. Remember back in the early 90's after the Oh Crikey demo was released, many thought the main menu would be awesome as a game. Years passed by and all those ideas faded away. Until now. It would seem that The Lost Boys actually were working on a game using that very code base.

GGN, Grazey and the guys have managed resurrected what was made of the game and put it together for release. There is also a level editor included. The actual game play still needs some work, and with some luck we might see updated/fixed versions later on. But for now, check what could have been back in the day.


Other than that, DHS released a small invitation intro for Sommarhack 2014 and there are a bunch of images and ziks as well.

As per usual, we will host a download page and update it when new files arrive.
 
Atari STe invite for Sillyventure May 13th, 2014

Outline 2014 April 1st, 2014
Havoc writes:

Outline is back once again! We're going were no Atari party has gone before, and that is beyond 10 consecutive yearly events. The party once again takes place at the premises of Kampeerboerderij W'tjewel in lovely Eersel, Holland. We'll have compos running on real hardware, just like last year, plenty of Atari related acts and hopefully some cool entries in the compos like in the previous decade that we served the Atari demoscene. In addition to that, the weather will be awesome because it's almost June when the party takes place, which is a virtual guarantee for a ton of fun outside the hall and on the football field. The food ticket we introduced last year is back due to popular demand, so if you like good food for a decent price, make sure to buy it along with your entry ticket. Is there any reason not to go? We can't think of it for sure, and hopefully you'll agree so we can say: "See you in Eersel, May 29th to June 1st" !

More info, registration and ticket purchase information can be found at http://www.outlinedemoparty.nl/
Keep an eye on the site, we only just released it and it will be expanded quite a bit in the oncoming days/weeks (public visitor list is a top priority so don't worry, we will show you who else is going- soon!).

Grazey writes:

303 new/updated SNDH files (607 subtunes).

Here are some YM delights to brighten up the dark January nights. Slightly different from the norm, yes we still have some tasty new tunes including exclusives, however we also have a massive amount of fixes, many of which are by Ben of The Overlanders. A more detailed account of this work can be found at the SNDH Blog.

Highlights >

+ All the tunes from Sillyventure 2013 including 505's ginormous Relix demo!
+ Some uber rare un-released tunes by Jess of OVR
+ An extended version of Furax's EQX Virtual Escape theme
+ The two Big Alec digi drum tunes from Punish Your Machine finally SNDH'D

 
BadMooD alpha-version released for Falcon January 17th, 2014
DML writes:

BadMooD - playable 'alpha' release is available!

Requirements are in the README, but a 'stock' Falcon030 with 14MB and some HD space is what you'll need.

There are detailed release notes in the archive, and I feel all of them are important (particularly, if you don't want to be annoyed by something which has an explanation, or can be reconfigured). There are a few things in this area so please take the time to read the notes if you really want to get the best experience out of the existing build. At the very least, read the parts about controls, performance and displays. The rest can be dug through whenever...

Put simply: RTFM ;-)


There is a bug tracker linked from the site with anonymous/guest login for reporting bad stuff. It hasn't been well tested, but we'll fix things if it doesn't work for you.

Now I can take a bit of a break while the endless heap of bugs piles up :-)

Greetz to all

d.m.l



UPDATE 2014-01-23:
BadMooD Alpha release 2 with Jagpad support and bugfixes, download below.

 
Fujiology Archive V1.0 is OUT! January 1st, 2014
Lotek Style writes:

TSCC is extremely proud to present you the biggest Atari Demo Scene archive
there is... entitled: Fujiology. Based on the ashes of the No Fragments CD-series
we gathered together as many Atari Scene releases we could find. The archive
was compiled by yours truly (Lotek Style) mostly during the year 2013.

The archive features 4 sections. The main section features releases for the
Atari ST (11.280 Files). Then there are bonus sections for TT (16 Files),
MAGS (3.021 Files), JAGUAR (471 Files) and FALCON (1.247 Files). Further
sections are planned to be included in future updates.

If you find any bugs or have missing files (marked yellow in the database) don't
hesitate to contact me.


Share and enjoy!
