We've heard reports of a party hall packed full with Atari guys, old and young, newbies and legends. The competitions were split up to two nights where graphics, music and wild were shown on friday and the rest on saturday.
This year the 8-bits showed who's boss. Some truly great productions there while the 16/32-bit guys were mostly still catching their breath from last years edition.
Demozoo is slowly filling up with the entries, see links below. Videos are slowly being added as well.
Ultra of Cream working on development cartridge for Atari
November 4th, 2019
In a break from the intense work of finishing the Heftig demo Ultra of Cream reveals a new hardware and software solution for Atari development aid.
It's a cartridge on the Atari that connects to a host PC via USB. The host can upload and execute a quite large (800k) demo in about a second. Furthermore the host can can reset the Atari between each run.
The cartridge also contains memory for the Bugaboo debugger helping to debug the code on real hardware.
The cartridge and software will be open sourced later on.
After about one and a half month, the final demo from Sommarhack 2019 is now released.
It's the Falcon invitation for the forthcoming Silly Venture party made by Mystic Bytes. The invitation runs on a 030 Falcon with RGB or VGA screen but also have some 060 enhancements.
With this we'd like to thank everyone who supported Sommarhack this year by releasing something in the competitions, visiting the party or both. We'll be back July 3-5 in 2020, look out for an invitation to come.
