From C64 Diskmag Wiki
--------------------------------------- -** SHORT! **- --------------------------------------- I warmly welcome you to a chapter called SHORT!, as you can see... On the following pages you can read statements from three people, given to several short questions. This time those three people will be: -Weasel / Avantgarde -H-Bloxx / Acrise*Excess -Peacemaker / Hitmen Lay back and enjoy.... 1. When did your scene-career start? W: That was long time ago! } It started back in the year 1986...... that was like 1 1/2 years after I got my C128 (which I used in C-64 mode only from almost the very beginning...........!! }) H: My scene career startet when I joined Cadgers in early 1993! Some time later and various groups be- tween I got the offer to join F4CG as Megaswapper. I agreed and so I was the new Megaswapper in F4CG for some months.... In late 1994 I joined TRISTAR+RED SECTOR INC. for some weeks, but as the current organizer sucked like hell (Hi Volker!) I decided to go back to F4CG.... After the EXCESS part v3 I spoke to Red Rock several times and after some time I joined EXCESS as they kick! Hmm..... I am in EXCESS for over a year now! Some weeks ago I also joined SCS*TRC as as I got the offer to (Ed.: but is out when I typed this) As EXCESS is in the coop with ACRISE I am Mr.Double Coop now..... SCS*TRC/ACR+EX that's it... OK?! P: HA! Start? Did it ever start? } Well, I think in 1989 when I joined RED SECTOR INC. Was the real first big group I joined. Before that I have been in smaller groups. 2. Is there a scene for you anymore? W: Sure there is! It's still a very nice scene on C-64 and also the best of all scenes from othr systems! H: Compared to the past?! Hmm... I think there is a scene, but more fun and friendship wise...... Warez do not count that much anymore... P: Well, sure things changd the lst years, but it is still interesting for me to do my job for the C64 scene. 3. If there is a scene for you }, how would you des- cribe it? W: It's a scene based on a certain spirit which is hard to describe to anyone who does not know our C-64 sceners' behaviour... You have to expirience it your- self... It's a mixture of cool friendship and very nice 'pals' arround! H: It is full of friendship and fun. Dudes stick together and fight for each other. You call arround, chat here and there, meet this and that person, I would say phuuuuuuuuunnn..... is the word for todays scene..... }! P: Corrupt. But funny! 4. What do you prefer in this scene, comparing to PC, Amiga etc.? W: The C-64 scene is not as fucking business like as on PC and AMIGA..... It's more the same intuition of all people! They wanna have fun and wanna meet cool mates. Many friendships can last a life long! H: PC SUX, just money keeps the stuff going, Amiga is lame too, no friendship... The PC could be cool, but the money factor is too high..... Rest see question 2+3! P: It is the friendship that I like. Calling other people and having fun on the phone. PC and Amiga is a way too large for me. PC and Amiga just leeeeeeeeech and uploading.... CREDITS!!!! 5. What is your role in the group/scene? W: I started as a cracker and am still a cracker these days! } In the scene I wanted to act fair and as a real friend and pal who you can trust blind! H: I am Megaswapper with +/- 140 pals, I edit Nitro, do some orri supply and suck ma dick here and there .... aehm.... P: Doing nothing and that much. HAHA } Nah, pal/ntsc fixing, phreaking, my board, some coding and deciding to kick and let people join HITMEN along with CURLIN and JIHAD. (I like that) Hu! 6. How long will the scene be interesting for you? W: The scene will be interesting for me as long as there are cool people left and as long as people accept my person beeing present in general (ed.: do they?? }) H: I guess forever as it is/was a part of my life, I will always remember it I think... As long as I have a target I will stay I would say.... P: As long as I got codez to call out. Calling some dutch spankers } . Just as long as I have phun. Games dont mean much to me anymore... 7. Considering the boardscene, what do you think about it? W: The boardscene used to be damn biiiiiig in former days! That was cool... but as many methods to call for free to USA died the last years it slowed down! But still there are ways and many boards left though. The boards have bee a completly new chap- ter in C-64 live! H: It is cool, much fasster than this mail crap, but un- fortunately I am not used to the board scene, it will maybe change soon. P: To less people calling US-boards. Codez, that what they need and hard to get nowadays. Hopefully changing soon again. But still funny to call boards. Posting crap! 8. What do you think about the mail scene? W: The mail scene was where all has begun! Those days were the best I wil always remember! It was also the time where I started my 'scene-career' in....! Those where the days with enough to crack and enogh cool quality game-productions! } H: It kixx, you get to know people from many different countries and you have always dudes you can rely on and with whom you can chat... The warez sprea- ding is pretty slow, but I think the mailscene is the base for the C64 scene... P: Oh yes, I like the mail-scene.. Coz ya can see alota stuff there ya wont get at boards. Nice to watch some intros of groups ya have never heard. Too bad, I am too lazy to mailswap, but hell, did years ago. 9. Catchword: Internet! W: Coolness! } I really love I-net! Although it's nothing compared to the C-64 scene! It's just a very nice and easy way to get in touch with lotsa people all over the world! H: Maybe the future for the C64 as it is much cheaper than calling boards... We will see how it develops... P: Great thing with 14.4 and Swiftlink. Need a better outdial for a 14.4 connect or a better modem. Internet is surely interesting for me. 10. The best expirience in your career? W: ... the day I entered the computer scene (by accident)... as always 'dreamed' about that to happen... but never it happens in reality.... that there might be guys somewhere who know and remember my nsame or handle....!! } H: Maybe it was as I joined F4CG as a new part of my life started... Also as I met this EXCESS dudes... The first calling card/vmb system was cool, too.... P: Erhmm. What a question. Don't know. There were alot. (Ed.: Really? }) 11. The worst experience in your career? W: Seeing the going down of that machine I'm still typing on right now! But nothing is forever... So it was cer- tain that it will happen some day! :( H: Getting a visit by the lame post fuckers they showed me a map containing same copies of sendings I mailed out... and they asked for real addys... this sucked! P: There haven't been much (Ed.: Really? }) 12. Do you think we need parties like: 'TP5', 'X95', 'Tribute', etc....? W: One word: S U R E ! ! ! That's the best place to meet people you always wanted to meet in your whole (scene-) life amd people u talk 2 since ages but never met! H: Yaeee! Parties are cool also I sadly just have been on computer meetings at commercial tradings or the EXCESS parties. P: Oh yes. Party is very very important. Meeting all the guys there and having even more fun with beer and drugs. Talking bullshit and doing serious buisiness. HAHA! Really, I am looking forward to the X-96.. will be great I think. 13. What do you think about games? W: Games are cool! They surely used to be better in former days! But that's why there are other ma- chines on the market these days! } I like gaming around! It's funny and can be educational! H: Cool, if they have some style and a real interesting game play... but not such lame tron-games, ripp offs or puzzle shit... P: Havent played a new game since years. Just testing them when I fixed one. They are mostly all lame. And don't have the time for playing games, but I remem- ber when I played games like e.g. Pirates (Ed.: me too!) and Last Ninja 1-3. Great Games. 14. What do you think about demos? W: Best thing ever invented in a scene! I simply L O V E demos on every computer system! It shows what the machine u see it on is able to produce!... and it is a pure scene-product! Kewl! H: Comparing todays demos with the past I must say they really kick... although some old demos were pretty cool, too!! P: Too much 4*4 pixel 'shit' nowadays, but like 'em thou. Which one I loved was the one from SHAPE. Great work pals, go ahead! 15. What do you think about magazines? W: A very nice way to get informed about anything what is going on in a scene! Very necessary and also very sensitive area for the editors of a mag! It's like in real life! You need to be most precise in your ar- ticles and also truthful! H: The medium with which we can chat... the flood of iformation is solved with them... VANDALISM, RELAX, PROPA and PULSE kick ass nowadays... P: I like to read some of them. Just the board magazines of course }. Wont tell ya which I love the most HAHA! 16. What do you think about the groups? W: Still a pretty nice mixture of all kinds of people! It has changed a lot since I started.... but it's cool to see that there are still guys who care about C-64! H: Hu, hu which ones?! AVT, SCS*TRC, AFL, F4CG, C, HIT, HC... Mostly they kick, although the name is mostly more than the action... P: Erhmm. Which groups? About all groups? Tyron.. what a stupid question } } (Ed.:}) 17. What do you think about the atmosphere? W: Best atmosphere in the C-64 scene! I've never expirienced any kinda similar scene-atmosphere somewhere else in another computer scene till now! H: Hu, todays groups try to keep the friendship to- wards others... Wars seem to be old styled.. aehm... P: Oh my God. Another one of these great questions. } Atmosphere? Ehrm... Yep. It is cewl.. Nah.. Great, or something like that. 18. What do you think about the pointsystem for first- releases? W: Oh well! Can't tell you much about this from my point of view as I don't really care about that! } I always had my own kind of point-system when I looked at releases of other (competition-) groups! H: It is OK in general, but as today some basic games come out, too, you should at least give one point for them!! P: Oh well, it is okay for me. Points are very very very important for the cracking scene. Didn't ya know? } 19. Who's ('re) the most important person (s) in your life? W: PWEEH! A hard question! Hmm... I'd say my best friend (Tobias) in 'real' life is very important to me! And also my parents! As they always were loyal to me in cer- tain 'unfair' life-situations! H: Probably my girlfriend 'Kesta' she really gives me the power I need for (HARD?!) life.... P: My mum, girly and all of my friends. 20. Is there something like a best friend for you in the scene? W: My best scene-friend and also a very good pal in real life is DEEJAY/CRAZY+LOTUS! (real name: Stefan) } H: Best friend... Hm, I think I have a lot of 'friends', whole EXCESS and others for sure, too! No space left to mention them here... P: Hmm, I have alota good friends here in our town. And some in Holland. (Spankers Heaven), and in other countries. I looooooooovvveeeee them all.. } 21. Is there a girl you remember in the scene? W: Hmm... No one I had known enough to say it's worth remembering! There used to be some scene-girls in the USA-BOARD-SCENE I knew off...!! H: Yae, this 'MAV/EAX', Dagmar really was cool, but sadly I hadn't heard from her for quite some time! (Hey, please send somethjhing, MAV!!) P: Oh, oh.. Not that I can remember of. 22. Would you like some girls on C64? W: Who wouldn't like that...?! } It's really sad that com- puters are such a men's only world most of the time! Thst should change some day! Really! H: Why not?! A cool conversation with some girls would be cool.... P: Hm. If they are in HITMEN and fix for me, why not, but then again, C64 is for men only. HAHA! Just joking! Sure, would be funny on parties... 23. How important is communication for you, concerning your group? W: Normally it's pretty important to me! As I like talking to the guys I'm in a group with..... But these days it's depending on cheap possibilities to be able to do that. That's the sad point about it! H: Very big! I hate to get news from my own group from others for example! Without communication this all sux like hell.... P: Very important I would say. Keeps a group together. And friendship with other groups... 24. In which way do you contact the members in your group? W: It used to be a weekly meeting here in my town when I started! Nowadays the group members live far away so the phone is the only way to keep in contact most of the time! And that's the point where I need to say fuck German Telekom!!! (h/p/a rules even more in 1996) } H: I try to send some packs to the ones I should get in touch with... Mostly I call each member is it is possible (cc or stuff)... p: Erhmm, with a telephone! } 25. Is there a future for your group? W: I hope so! } And if not I hope to be able to stay in this fantastic scene anyways somewhere! } H: Hey, why not?! As we stay together in friendship, I think there certainly is a chance to survive and kick! P: There has been a great past, so there will be a future. More or less. } 26. Anyone you would like to greet? W: WOW! What a tough one! } It's so easy to forget somebody.... and that's really the thing I hate!
