Why all this changes??

Editor´s Word:

Yes,my first issue ever when I´m the boss and it feels great to be
it! I´ve wrote text to 7 issues of World News and founder of Re-
formation ofcourse...

My goal with this magazine is to be the best one around which I
personally allready think it is (beside the Pulse)
I´ve sorted away boring chapters like Contact Corner and other
unimportant chapters,but instead you can read all the cool happ-
enings around every issue! 

To make this mag takes alot of time, so had to end my swapping
some month ago, only 20 left now, but if you send disc to me I´ll
return them again (disc to magazine)

O.K now enjoy this mega piece of work and please, Do give critic
if there are something you like or not...


Red Devil will make a votesheet on paper, so til next issue we´ll
have some "normal charts" also, as many of you readers miss such

Send your sheet to someone in the staff before the 20th of each
month and we will count it, but no cheating!

You can also vote on ALL our boards, make a call now!!

Yes, we need all kind of stuff to make this mag kicking, so do send
reactions,news,articles or whatever to us and we´ll print it the
next comming issue,grab a pen NOW!

The Last Words...

... and Reformation HQ´s ...

Last Words:

Yes, not so much news this time, but the reason is simple, most
of the happening will you find in the Party Report instead...

Don´t forget to post news at:

Warez Aquarium




Future Zone

O.K see you all in another chapter...
The Reformation         (C) FairLight

Board Corner


                    Some spotlights...
                    ...on the boards!!

And again its time to Inform you about the News in the BBS Scene
There have been some Changes in Hardware and Numbers for the
Boards in Europe and the USA.


The Epic Headquarter has gone Down for some Personal Problems
of Crossfire/Epic.
Idon´t know if he will put it back Online, but i´m sure he will
Inform the Reformation Staff as soon as Possible.

Twilight World:

Eric/Laser got a 40 Megabyte Harddisk and added it to the System
He is still running Deathlok Modded C*Base.


Finally also Running on a Harddisk again.
At the Moment only 40 Megs but soon it will run 540 Megs
when I get my Adaptor working.


Well, The Sysop, Holy Moses still didn´t find out that from his 38
Users, 20 are Fake Accounts from ERIC/LASER, CAVRON/TRC 
He Pretends to be the only Sysop who is running a Backdoor Free
Board with his own C*Base Mod (ed.which is buggin´ a lot).
He also stated that everybody who is running a C*Base Version
which is written by another Dude is absolutely Lame.
So i think he Offended the whole Scene he ?!

State of the Art:

Is the BBS with the Most Callers for Sure.
Cavron counted about 38 Calls a Day.
A Hard Concurrence to all the other Boards in Germany.

Power Engine:

Is a BBS which is not known by the most People.
That´s because it´s running in SWISS.
The ATLANTIS Headquarter features a lot of kewl Graphics
and also a 85 MB Harddisk connected to a RamLink.
Due to the Fact that i don´t have the Number Right now, you
have to get it Yourself.
Try to contact some oof the ATL Dudes.
The Sysop is AVALANCHE, who is an Excellent Graphician also.

Kingdoms Hall:

Might be the Laugh of the Year 1993.
The Sysop named "Mister Softcream" is one of the absolutely
Lamest people ever.
He can´t speak a single Word in English and his IQ seems to
be below 10 (ed. you need 11 to open a Banana)
The so Called "Board" is running on UCBBS (ed. Ahem) and is 
Connected to a Stockpile of 1541´s.
Non Speeded and filled up with very BAD Graphics it´s the lamest
Bulletin Board System ever Recognized in the Computer Scene.

Dark Star:

Well, this is a MAILBOX, Legal running on C*Base 3.o with 2 1581
Floppys and Jiffy Dos.
The GFX doesn´t look that nice and the biggest Part of the BBS is
mostly in German and with 99 percent LEGAL Users Only.
The Sysop, Stevie Magic had some Problems with the typical
Read/Write Errors of a 1581 Drive but finally got some Update 
Roms for his System.
Don´t dare to Upload Pirate Wares there.


Well, not Tested yet, but rumours say that it´s Online 24 Hrs Now
The Systm is running an older version of "Deathlok Modded".
The Sysop is Chrissie/Rebels who also names himself
Cool Coder Chrissie....
We´ll see if his BBS is also that Cool.


Well, I haven´t checked out this BBS but it shall run on 
CyborgModded (ed.not another one!!) C*Base with a Harddisk.
The Sysop is Frank/Impression.

The Decadence:

Well, for sure one of the oldest Boards in Germany.
The Sysop named "Deathstralker" is still the BIGGEST Board in 
Europe, His BBS is running on 320 Megs with Jiffy Dos.
There is not much Action since about 1 Year but i think that
this Depends to the Fact that the BBS is LEGAL Only.
You aren´t able to Upload any Pirate Wares there.
The BBS is running on TSS/SCS old Modification of C*Base.


The New Number of the Motiv8 EHQ is +XX.XXX.XXXXXXX
The BBS is still fast as Hell due to the Ramlink and the 170 Meg hd
The Reformation             (c)FairLight

More news...


Is back Online under the old Number.
Finally Tricket decided to put the BBS Online again running 
CyborgModded C*Base ( far as i know)
But now the BBS is running under the Flag of the new Group 
named "Motiv 8" founded by Crossfire/Epic and Tricket/VR

New nr.: +XX.XXXX.XXXX

Chaotic Factor:

Avantgarde will move their USHQ away from this board,coz it
crashes nearly everyday now!

Single news:

* Jack Daniels/Avantgarde is thinking about opening a board in

* L.A Style/G*P opened his Amiga BBS running Amiexpress 3.9
  with an Amiga 500/450 Mb/Zyxel E+ modem.
  The board is only open for Amiga and S-Nes users but connects
  with 2400 Bps is still allowed.

* 3rd Reich/Censor WHQ is down and will maybe not appear any-
  more as Adolf left the scene!

* There´s a new board in Sweden called: Fosie BBS!
  It´s the most funniest board ever made so give it a call and have
  a good laughter!
  The number is: +XX-(X)XX-XXXXXX
Make sure to post news at the Reformation subs at our boards!!

SEP - DEC 1993

Some facts:

	All types of groups have the change to enter the charts,
	not only demo- or crackergroups!

	All members in the groups on the charts are at least 
	registrated in one counted magazine.

	I count each point a member or a mag receives in the 
	selected disc-magz!

Mags released this period were:
Earthquake #19
Explorer #20
Internal #18
Ing. Brain #03
Miracle #09
Skyhigh #07

(As you can see there´s some changes of the selection, but don´t 
blame me, blame the editors which haven´t released their mags 
under this period like: Accuracy, Trance...

But the charts gives you a 100% fair view of the 20 strongest 
allround groups in the scene at the moment!

What´s happend?

Many changes this time, unactive groups starts to fall like they
already should have done months ago! Also many changes inside
the groups are important for their place now.
O.K let´s see what´s happend...

	BML (1275)		SPIRIT (1772)
	ACCURACY (1933)		TABOO (1618)

Yes, LIGHT and BLACKMAIL left the charts after being there
since the beginning, both groups are allmost dead, so a reenter is
out of the question, GOOD BYE!

Next time will maybe groups like Avantgarde and Extend join, 
it´s up to the voters,not me...

The Party III Report by Bacchus/FLT

Howdy hackers!

This time I´ll bring you sum of the happenings at THE party of
the passed year. The Party III, with 2682 paying visitors, was the
biggest party EVER held. So hold on for more:


The party was held from 10:00 on the 27/12 to 15:00 the 29/12 1993
Entrance cost: 150Dkr.

The Party Place:

Last years Danish party was held in Aars, in a huge conferess
center. As the arrangers estimated that this wouldn´t room all the
guys this time, they moved the show to Herning, which holds
Denmark´s biggest "Messecenter". All the guys who reserved pla-
ces , got a spot for their own in the main hall, which was BIG! The
other poor fellows got stuck in a smaller hall. Both contained the
screens we now expect from all decent parties. (The one in the
big hall was a bit unsharp, so all plotter shown got lost in the
blurr.) You were allowed to sleep anywhere you could, but there
were sleeping halls available. They contained white screens (kind
of chinese walls) so you could easily find your own corner to sneak
into. But who wants to sleep on parties? (I still remember the
squares Tron got in his forehead, after sleeping on the keyboard in


For once, there were showers to be used. The hot water run out
the first hour, but you could get water out of the system, and
that´s what counts! (Too bad, I didn´t bring a towel. You learn to
live with the smell!)

A 24 hour cafeteria and a resturant was open when you needed
it, provided good food for decent prices. (30 Dkr for a plate of half
a chicken and a massive bunch of fries is OK pricing to me!)
I heard people complaining at the prices, but I assume they
expected free food for the entrance cost! (Irony)

The toilets tend to be OK the first hours, but then turn into
places you rather shit in your pants than enter. The cleaning
staff did an excellent job, to prevent this from happening at this

For the ones who didn´t have anything to do, there was a major
hall on the second floor which was used as a moviehall. Some of
the latest movies on laserdisc were shown. Commodore held their
symposiums in between the moviesessions.


While registrating at the entrance, you got a pink bracelet to
indicate that you had paid, and also a votedisk. This was an
Amiga formatted disk with a voting program on. Voting could be
done on any Amiga, and then you just left the disk to the arr-
angers. Really kewl system.

You voted for the number that corresponded to the contribution
you voted for. This became a mess in the graphicscompetition, as
they managed to provide two different screens telling which
number each person had. If you find a person considerably lower
or higher than expected, then this might be one of the reasons!

At the democompetition Focus had our votes course the mistake
with numbers at votings. Well Focus: Congratulations for a place
on the stands. You got it, but the only reason was that you were
number three, and we number four. We would easily have passed
you, and would even be close to Censor, if the votes had been put
on the INTENDED demo!

Also cheating appeared as Scat/RSI traded with a lot of dudes to
win the gfx-compo, but the arrangers found it all out and he got
"only" a 10th place with a UGLY-piccy! So people, don´t take this
compo too serious,please!
Who was unshaved at the party???   


Personally I did arive at 15:00, some five hours after the actual
start of the party, but I´ve been told they had a Kyd&Balle show
and also a "rope pulling contest" during this time.

What I saw was the "diskthrowing contest" and the "karoke
contest". The latter took so long than the arrangers time list blew
up, fucking the shedule for the rest of the party. It was a pathetic
sight, seeing the yelling nerds on stage. I can´t imagine how one
can make such a fool of oneself for the change of winning a CD32.

Also on the party were some danish dealers with stands selling
accessories for the Amiga and PC. You could buy lots of decently
priced 3.5" discs, but no sight of 5.25" ones!

Commodore was sponsoring the party. This hasn´t happened
before, as I recall. They held symposiums in the moviehall, as said
before. Subjects were CD32 (with the Full Motion Video (FMV)
module to it), system programming and more. The audience could
ask the scandinavian direction any question they liked.
It,s rather new that CBM staff are this open to their buyers!
Funny things at the party:

* Legoland 3 was released, but how it´s way to Herning was is a
  knowledge! Tron wasn´t at the party so we had to DL the demo to
  the party, but how? Later on we got in contact with a dude call-
  ed Helloween/Bronx, he said that he could borrow his home
  with full c-64 equipment to us. We went to his home and DL the
  demo, but when we left him again, Bacchus had his C-64 withhim
  too!! Opps! But later at the party again, Helloween got his comp-
  uter back again, he didn´t knew that he lost it...

* At night Spirou/Flt and Creeper/Antic were tired and wanted
  to rest for a while, but their sleep were short, coz suddenly
  there flew massess of 3.5" disks against them, when Spirou asked
  what´s going on, he got the answer: Diskthrowingcompo!! Ouch!

* The was a fight between Crossfire and Dishy, it all ended with
  X-fire leaving the party and Dishy as a champion!

* Creeper/Antic suprised us all, becourse he wasn´t ill at the
  party as he usually is,yum!

* Did someone see that car which drove 1.5m up on a little snow-
  mountain? Get the picture!

* Who´s that red bearded man?
When will I be famous? Fosie BBS...

The Compos:

The arranging groups (Silents,Lemon and  Spaceballs) are all on
the Amiga. So for this reason the C64 and the PC compos were
second interest. We all know the prices for the C64 compo sucked
major dokey dick, but the set two hours for the compo were re-
duced to one. One of the reasons was the "awesome" (NOT!)
karokeshow. For this reason, Camelot (arranging the compo on
the C64) took out a jury to select the 10 best demos of the 19
available. This could easily be done as there were the mature pic-
tures screaming "Fuck PC and Amiga" (Hi Regina) and other junk
products to be directed to the garbage can instantly...

[A]I got my first computer in 1983,and in 1987 I joined the first
   real demo group.

[Q]What groups have you been in during the years?

[A]Groups I´ve been a member are The Black Knights, which be-
   came Weird Science, and then I joined Contex when Weird split
   up, and finally I joined Megastyle when Contex split up!

[Q]How did you start on the scene?

[A]I joined "The Black Knights" after seeing their adress in
   a demo. We then changed name a few times, before we and
   some famous group I can´t remember the name of (The Flash-
   boys??Not quite, but something like that;) formed Weird
   Science 2662.(By the way, this part of Weird formed later Tridon
   which was prehaps rather unknown, but they were very good.)

[Q]What aliases have you been using?

[A]In my first demos I used the name "NOP" (No Ordinary Prog-
   grammer), and when I joined Contex, I changed to Cycleburner.

[Q]When did you start making demos, and when did you start com-
   peting in demo competitions with them?

[A]I guess I started making demos 1987 or so, and I think it was
   my second demo that won the first prize at a party in Askim. (I
   even beat Rawhead and Omega Supreme wasn´t too happy
   about not winning...)

[Q]What is your most famous oroduction so far?

[A]The most successful demo I made in Weird Science, was prob-
   ably "Sign´o´the Times (won in Askim).

   But I guess I´m best known for,are the ones I made in Contex.
   Everyone keeps saying "Look Sharp" was so great, but I can´t
   understand why... Besides, it only got a fifth place at the party it
   was released.
   I was more satisfied with "Youthquake", but it was "only" third.
   "Top priority" is probably the one I put most work into(and it
   has the most parts too.)

   We could have done a lot of great work in MegaStyle, but
   school took too much time for all of us. They actually asked me
   to join already when I was in Contex, but I chose to stay in Con-
   tex. Who knows, maybe we would have done something even
   greater if I had joined Megastyle earlier. Rune "Sparkler" Spans
   is an outstanding artist, and I´m glad he´s doing the graphics for
   my game now.

[Q]What is your coding philosopphy,i.e what do you find im-

[A]My"coding pilosophy" is that I don´t care much about tricks
   that are hard to code. Design is everything. But if you can incor-
   porate some clever coding tricks into a great looking demo, then
   that´s ideal. Futhermore, I don´t like effects that aren´t updated
   50 times per second (or 60 times per second on NTSC).

[Q]Do you try to find a use  for a new routine, or do you make up
   the "story" first and then figure out which routines to use?

[A]In most of the demos I´ve made on the C64, I´ve sampled some
   music, and then I´ve let the music inspire the rest of the demo.
   Sometimes I have made a routine first, but that´s not usually
   how  I work. It tends to get boring that way...

[Q]Do you like just technial demos, or do you think that people
   should work on more design?

[A]I hate technial demos, unless they contain something amazing.
   The first demos with sprites on the border were pretty shock-
   ing to me, although the design could have been better.
   I´m amazed by effects tht previously were thought of as imp-
   ossible, but 4000 dots or 500 scrollers is too boring.

[Q]What are your tools of the trade?

[A]The assembler I use was infact made by my father!

[Q]What are your views on the different scenes? You told us that
   you are working on a game for the Amiga,is that your new

[A]Yes,I´ll be working on my own game for Amiga for some
   while,and if it turns out like I hope it will,I´ll continue making
   games for the Amiga too.

[Q]Can you tell us about any weird experience you have had when
   attending a party?

[A]Now,about weird or funny things that have happened at part-
   ies,I only seems to remember the bad parts,like my power
   supply failing to work,my screen not surviving the transport,
   cop.prices being withdrawn or cops cancelling the whole party!
   Maybe I´M just very unlucky,or maybe I´M suffering from
   But atleast I´ve had the pleasure of meeting a lot of interesting
   people at the parties!

[Q]Thanks for the chat, live long and prosper!

[A]And may the force be with you.

In the next issue we´ll have spotlights on:

Group Profile



...the group profile chapter

Yes, this is a new chapter in Reformation which will contain
some very interresting reading about famous groups profile and

First out is:


Chromance is, in my opinion,a  group which everyone likes one
way or another. They are entitled as one of the few groups who
made it to the top, but who not really look down on others. They
have friends ranging from members from top groups ´til group-
less people who just entered the scene. The first time I really got
in touch with Chromance, was when I helped my friend Atomicro
to get in the scene. He coded a couple of intros and send them to
Chromance, with the  question if the liked them, and prehaps he
could join. And they accepted him. That was when I decided for
myself that Chromance was special. They don´t look at your back-
ground first, and then you prehaps could do for the group. I think
it wouldn´t mattared if Atomicro came straight from Legend to
Chromance or just like then, new in the scene, because they
would have taken him on his abilities, and not his background.

How goes the Chromace-story?

Chromance began life as a root of the F.B.I Crew in summer 1990.
Mr.Wax, at that time leader of F.B.I, was fed up with the chaos in
the group, and decided to start a new one. From the F.B.I
members, they picked the best and most active members, to form
a group with a name comming from the ´Gridpoint Observer´
editor. (Guess who?,ed anm) Also some other members from diff-
erent groups and countries joined, but they are already out or left
the scene by now. To promote Chromance a bit, the went to the
Transcom party. "The biggest flop ever" says Mr.Wax about this
party. Their big breakthrough was when they started to crack
seriously, and when they origanized their own party,the
Chromance Party V2 in Budapest, back in 1991.

Who rule among the rulers?

Instead of leaders as in the F.B.I  Crew, they took organizers,
which are Mr.Wax and Jinx. Chromance never died and is never
rebuild becoz of that, they have never been in co-op, although
there have been a few little co-op contact demo´s. Besides their
cracks, among them, several first releases from Hungarian soft-
ware teams, they also release a small demo once in a while (like
Bad Habbit) and their "Gamers Guide"-clone "Are We The Best?".
They have stopped their activities for this magazine, and are
waiting for another person to continue its release. Chromance
future plans are just some improvments of what they are doing
now. They do still concentrate on cracking, and tries to get more
involved in the modemscene (with Armageddon for example).
They do also have a party once in a while (last one was a month
ago with Faces: the X-mas Paddy!)

Quality leads to the top!

There are only a few "elite" groups, and the struggle for the
number one place by releasing the best cracks is hard.
Chromance see themselves striking with quality-cracks and many
first releases. But this is also where some people have critics on
Chromance. Some say that most first releases are budgetgames
from Hungarian teams, and most games arren´t worth playing.
But, this slight minor is covered up by some nice "normal"
cracks, and sometimes they even made a real masterpiece. I think
that that´s also a very important factor which helped them to the
top. After all, the WANTS quality instead of speed... (Hmm,start
voting for Bacchus/FLT

Some thoughts about charts!

Mr.Wax has a very good opinion here and the position of some
groups. He says "In my opinion, most charts are bullshit. No off-
ence of groups, but how comes it that inactive groups are placed
so high in charts? Think before voting! And also stop voting for
dead groups, give the chance for the real active people instead!!"

Some finalwords from Mr.Wax

"Most of us are friendly people, don´t like to rag and so on. We´re
trying to have some fun in this scene and we always look on the
bright side of life. Peace to everybody and remember: You´re liv-
ing only once, don´t take computing to seriously. If you do, you´ll
surely regret it a few years later!".
