	  aren´t dead just for that, I´ll take over the leadership and

Mega Charts


JAN - FEB 1994

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:
AddyBook #15
ChitChat #05
Earthquake #20
Magness #05
NewsPress #13
Revealed #03
Update #10

Well, only magagazies with smaller charts were released this time
and the will ofcourse affect the MegaChart too...
The charts in the magz were more up to date than they ever have
been, inactive groups made big falls and active ones climbed as 
never before, but that´s they way it goes sooner or later,right?

Also, the big magazines,like Splash,aren´t that often released and 
many of the votes get old,but they´re counted and do ofcourse
dominate the charts,got it?

Well, now, some suprises will follow on the pages and new for
this issue is that I also created single Megacharts,read them then 
you´ll know the names of the sceneheros of the beginning of 1994!!

Facts about charts

* Out of the chart:			* Near the chart:

	ILLUSION (dead)			MOTIV 8 (1898)
	EPIC (dead)			SPIRIT (1628)
	COMIC PIRATES (dead?)		LIGHT (1632)

Three groups died and went out, the longawaited entry from
Extend is suddenly true,smashed in at place 15!
Fun to see TWO polish groups now in the chart,I think the c-64
future lies in Poland,more right than wrong,eh?

Also,very nice to see that the voters today take more care before
filling in those tons of sheets,unactive groups don´t belong in the
chart and it´s very fun to see many newcommers too...
Let´s just hope that it´ll continue like this in the future too...
Let´s sumary the chart:

Well, here you got one of the two parts viewing we in the staff 
will make in each issue, the other part is ofcourse the vote-sheet
charts, but the votes were to few this time as we haven´t even 
released the vote-sheet yet, but some dudes sent in votes on 
paper, thanks, the votes will be in next issue...

Yes, don´t forget to vote fair for fair charts, got it?!
Don´t forget to send in the votes in time, course old votes won´t be
counted as we all want fresh and fair charts, not old and unactive

Also, you miss the Euro-board chart, but only the FLT-boards 
got votes (92%) so,the chart was not even close to be made, will
try next time again,if i really need it...

Wow, another new chapter in this fab. magazine, well what´s up 
this time, a chapter about stupid swedish blondes or could it 
possibly be something about Jucke/G*P cooking??

Nope, this is one about the best European boardscene, yes, the 
swedish one, and becourse this mag got many swedish readers, it´s
natural that they got a chapter too (yes, including me...)

Of course it´s awesome reading for you outside this cold country 
too, now go A-head...

Europe - Faster Than Light??                                                       


All about the action on the swedish boards, still haven´t called 
them yet?, you bastard!
Yes, febuary was a quite busy month for Sledge, as there was a
calling boom at this board, hopefully will the action follow the 
board down to the capital of Sweden as Sledge will move in there 
by summer... 
Hmm, Spirou left the board for six weeks, army duty, and what 
happend on the second day, the board hung up, sorry all, but it 
won´t be useful to call before W.12, as Spirou is out til then and 
has no possibility to fix it before...
The board has been down since the summer´93 and we wrote that
Adolf left the scene forever in the last issue,but what happend,
on the 10.2 it was up again with Adolf as sysop,well done,but it´s
future won´t be long if the amount of callers will be low...
Jerry, the sysop, upgrated this board which now is said to be one 
of the absolute fastest boards around, low action though this 
Not much action here the past month, cool to see that Oneway is
active one their sub, THEY ARE NOT DEAD suckers!!
After being down for some weeks, Natas the sysop fixed the error
and it´s up again, lot of action ofcourse and the online game really
* The old Illusion board, Paradize, is down, but not burried as 
  rumours says, course Sodapop will move into the GBGcity but a 
  local dude will take over the board and run it,yes, let´s hope it´s 

* Illusion of Reality (Triad Hq) is down since awhile now,also 
  Dreamline (Jam Whq) is down since may´93,got it all you who
  still print them in your boardlists...

* Oxidy/FLT will probably NOT open his board WEDLOCK as he 
  don´t have time for it (school,coding etc.), maybe he will open it 
  later this year...

* Wrath Designs new Hq is still not up as X-Flash run out of 
  money to open it, he will try again this summer!

* Rumours says that Noice will put up the New Dawn again,but 
  who and when? Also a dude called Farmer from the #1 town in 
  Sweden (simrishamn) will maybe open his board Zentral again,
  but he needs a H.D, if you got one or know one who have, call:
  0414 - 160 89 (nicklas)...

The Ultimate C-BBS PeeZee/64

by: Sledge/FLT
You may have heard rumours about a new bbs program called
c-bbs or Tron bbs? It´s the new BBS program done by the main
coder in Fairlight, namely Tron.

This new BBS program is in some ways different from other BBS
programs on the C64, bcoz you don´t run it on a 64, but on a PC
computer (finally PC can do something useful!). The program is
developed on a 16 Mhz PC 386 computer in C environment. That
means it´s a real fast program too. 

Why Tron decided to make a BBS program on a PC for 64 users is
quite simple. He wanted to have a powerful board that ways fast
, easy to expand and cheap equipment. On a PC you have 640k
memory to use and if you have more the 1 megabyte in your
computer, then you can use cache programs for greater speed.
And PC computers are cheap today, atleast if you buy a XT or a
286 computer. A complete XT system with 20 megs HD and 640k
memory + CGA monitor can be found at a price of 50-100 dollars
And that is a real cheap system too if you just are going to
use it as a board. And a XT is fast too for 2400 bps users. It will
run as fast as any C64 board with a HD. But you can take advatage
of backup programs copy programs, defragment programs when
your HD are fragmented like hell.

The program is completely compatible with Cbase 64. That means
you can convert all the mail and letters that have been done on
your old system. Even the userlog can be converted. That is
something very useful. Bcoz who would like to buy a new BBS
program when you already have a powerful board that have a
big base of posts and users. Then it´s very useful to take the
whole userfile and mail with it. 

The outifit is very like Cbase, but there are some improve-
ment too. It has got a better sub system, with a fullscreen editor
for 80 columns users. And it has got Punter, Xmodem, Ymodem
and Zmodem protocols with heavily improved UD area.

C-BBS is a 100% full working color graphic board. And it will look
just like you called a real C64 board, only bigger and faster
(it all depends on the equipment you use).
It will support 40 and 80 column display, with c/g, ansi and acsii
as options. Even the sysop will se a 40 column display when some-
one logs onto with 40 column choosen.
Everything to keep the real feeling there of running a real 64

Users will see new improvements on the E-Mail, UD and subs-
system sides. When you have more then 1 mail in your private
mailbox you will be able to choose which one you want to read
first unlike Cbase scroll system which can be quite annoying
sometimes. And you can delete just one mail if you wanna keep
the other for further use.

On the sysop side there will be a total change to what Cbase users
are used to. You will now have better group access, mail to all
users command, better access editor etc. The list can be long.
It will also have a FREE network module included. And a personal
network code too so that everyone that wan7t to take part of the
C-BBS NETWORK can be that. And that is something real cool.
The board will pack all mail files with PKZip or something like
that and then send it. No transfertime what so ever.

The sysop will also be able to connect a C64 in the COM2: port on
the pc with a nullmodem cable. So that he can see logon to the PC
and see how everything looks on his C64. That is a great deal when
you have modded your prompts and would like to see how it really
looks like for a caller. And then you can transfer files from the
C64 in a easy way. Perhaps quite slow if you don´t have a Swiftlink
or a C128 (9600 bps). But then again, there are utilities and tools
on how to build a cable and connect a 1541 to the com post on the
PC and direct copy files form the 64 diskdrive.
SKAUNE - Living on The Edge...                                           @>@

The Ultimate C-BBS continue...

But then you might think, the PC has got only 8+3 chars, that will
look stupid. But no, the C-BBS has got full length filenames up to 
16 chars so that all files will look the same. Great, isn´t it? 

The program will also be compatibly with the new Novell-
Dos version 7.0, which supports longer filenames then 8+3 chars
like the standard Dos. But for you guys that don´t have or don´t
want to have Novell Dos 7, keep to your old system and that´s fine
too, because you will be able to use 16 chars filenames anyway.

This is perhaps the best BBS program up to date for C64 users.
And this program is expandable beyond imaginations, since you
have so much memory to use. This will perhaps be the most
popular BBS program too, since it can handle all famous modes
like C/G (64 & 128), ANSI (PC/AMIGA), ASCII for all others. And
mainly because of the low price of the program, probably to be
set around 350 skr or 44 dollars. And you will get alot for your
44 dollars too, a BBS program for C64, PC, AMIGA and
a NETWORK module, prompt editor, Cbase 3.0 mail/posts/user
converter so that C*Base owners won´t be left behind.

I suggest you to buy this program if you want to have the C64
board of the 90´s when NETWORKING is something HOT and will
be more and more usual. It can´t be better then this. Get it!

F4CG Eastern Party (for C-64 only!)

Hey dudes! This time the raw guys in FFourCG are arranging a
party in Italy!

The party is the very first one held in Italy,so try your best to
come as it will surely be an awesome situation...

The place is in a little town near Udine (which is about 120km
from Venice..) called Plsino di Pagnacco (uh!?),with room for no
more than 100 people.. This is B-coz this party is just an exper-
iment and if we (I) see it goes well, we will arrange a bigger one 
at the end of June!

We don´t wanna say that we have mega-record-breaking prizes 
for the democompo. just B-coz there won´t be any compo as long 
as we don´t get atleast 5 groups taking part of it...

Instead a music and graphic compo will be held,and as there is NO
democompo,the prizes willl (hopefully) be quite high.

Entrance: 30DM,35$
Date: 4-5 April (Eastern)

The entrance includes free drinks and pizzas as long as we have 
ones left,also some cafeteria...

As the place is so little,there aren´t any shop or bar,but there is 
one about 200 m far from the place.

The partyline will sadly NOT be at the partyplace as well use for 
it the line of Playboy´s home!

It´s prefered that you book a place B-coz if you come and there is
no room left,you´lll be kicked out after 11.00 pm.

For more detailed information,book a table or for even a map,


Too bad I can´t come Playboy, but I really hope your party is going
well coz a pure C-64 would be awesome to join in,hehe!/Enduro

TCC is cancelled!!!

Well as we wrote in the last issue,that we and Horizon would 
organize the TCC party for the second year is sadly cancelled!

Why? The budget didn´t match the plans, we needed about 
300.000 SEK (about 40.000$) more to run the party and that was
too much, the sponsors couldn´t fill the gap so the party had to be
cancelled,but we do still work on a TCC-party for 1995,see you

MAGASCENE by Depeh/Antic

Hello scenefolks! I want you all to read this article and wake up 
and smell the reality!

This scene is right now being destroyed by all these fucking 
magazines around. Why does every fucking group got to have a 
magazine? I don´t think it´s so very fun to get a sending with 2 or 
3 magz on and nothing else...

I don´t think is is so very stimulating to read the same charts,
same news, same reactions in every single mag. I think that you 
mag-editors should learn how to code or draw graphics or make 
music and you should start to make demos instead.

We all don´t want a scene with only magazines,do we?? No,ofcoz

Mark my words when I´m saying that this scene is turning into a 

Why can´t two or three magazines go together into one bigger,
more fair, better mag or best of all, why not just have one disc-
mag were for exaple the 10-20th best magz have joined forces 
and created a super mag, this would do a mag more objective, 
more fair in charts, more text each issue!

Think about this idea and hopefully some of you will go together
to create a supermag, but sadly enough, I think that you out 
there are far too egoistic to do this...

But I can promise you that we would get a far much better scene
with more DEMOS around...

Well as I AM a mag-editor, I think i could give Depeh an answer.
First of all, the amount of magazines haven´t grown but have de-
creased! But why you feel like it only excist magz is becoz there
nearly aren´t any demos produced anymore, only a few each 
month. Not like the old days when there were plenty of demos 
around, but why aren´t there any demos? The answer is splitted,
but my own opinion is following:

1.In the past it took one week to create a demo, it was one filed
  ones with quite simple code,but scrollers!
  Nowdays it takes month to create those 1 disc demos with lots of
  new scene records and design, if anyone releases a smalll demo, 
  nobody likes it, the time has changed! We want big demos in
  these days which are Amigainspirated (TowerPower), not those 
  small demos from three letter groups like we wanted 1990!

2.The amount of coders have decreased the last year which is 
  naturally as many have left for the Amiga and PC scene. They
  which not left, are sometimes not qualified to create a BIG 
  superdemo with 15 parts,but can easily code an outfit for a 

Well, got it, and further on with your thoughts of a Supermag.
That idea is only going to work in the ways of theory,coz the
sceners live too far away from each others and would have
problems to communicate,even if all got modems!

But if it would work, i surely agree with you Depeh!

Hmm, where to start this article about the jerk himself:

Well, as you all can read in the subs of Cyberdome, I and X-fire 
have a little cute war, but why? Read on...

It all started when X-fire let Epic die and founded Motiv 8,where
he still is in... We in the Reformation staff got the news that not 
all Epic-members were informed about the actions and that the 
group Vision joined up in Motiv 8 too...

Well,we printed these news in issue 7 after checking it all out,coz
we DON´T print false news in this magazine, but three days after 
the release I got a note from X-fire called: Correction to #07. In 
this note he claimed that he sure had informed ALL Epic 
members in time before the splitting and that only three Vision 
members did join M8, "the only useful ones"from Vision as X-fire
said! He also wrote that if you wanna read true news then read 
The Pulse (a mag were he is a co-editor in)!

I didn´t take too much notice of this note, but would have it in
mind and give appologies in the next issue for writing that the
whole Vision crew joined M8 and not just 3 of them, yes it´s true,
what a crime I did writing those horrible things!!

But,then I called Cyberdome and what did I see,X-fire acused 
Reformation for being a LAMER magazine and that nobody he 
knows likes it, only lamers do...

It was now I became ANGRY on that bastard, why did he write 
those words I thought and tried to call him up,but he HANGED
up,how lame! So from now on I am in a personal war with that
creep til he gives the whole Reformation staff an appologie, got 
that Kim?? Or are you too shy or lame?

Enough now, but before you call us lamers,recall your moves
when you did put Motiv 8 as number one in the charts of your
very own Pulse-magazine...

Howdy hackers!

I´d like to discuss swapping.

Why swapping???

I take that swapping may have two purposes; For bigger groups
that produce lots of materials of their own, it´s a way of spreading
the stuff to a wider audience. Hopefully some of the persons who
get the disk will pass it on further.

The other alternative is that you want programs someone else has
so you send stuff to trade with in order to get the stuff.

In both cases there must be an obvious point in having the data
on the disk intact. If files on the disk are broken, then there was
no point in sending that file at all.

And yet, every week I get a few packs with disks that seem like
they passed hell and returned. They have opended sleves, no
cover sleves, visible defects on the media and so on...

Obviously these disks don´t work, or only work partially. Please
tell me the reason to send one of those.

When I started computing in 85, I spent the same amount of
money, buying one disk as I now pay for ten. Also the quality is so
much better. Even the highest quality of disks could freak out and
be useless to the reciever.

So, if disks are so cheap, and the need to pass on the data is the
primaty target, why do people send these disks???

I´ll tell you a secret: All copy program I know of have a feature
called verify. This function makes the program tell you when it
didn´t manage to put the data safely on the disk! Turning verify
OFF is saving a time, but the cost in the other end is obvious: You
cannot trust the output from your system!

I discussed the subject with Surfer/Active, and his opinion was
that he only sent the disks, so that the receiver got a look on
what Active had produced. As most of them don´t pass the
programs on, he could see no use in sending working programs.
I guess Surfer could just as well swapp printouts of the directory,
which wouldn´t be as wulnerable as the disks.

I think this is idiotic!


* Send -working- disks
* Use verify while copying
* Use some sort of hard paper to protect the disks
* Always send back the stamps!

If you cannot fulfill these demands, then don´t bother sending to
me. That´s for sure!

What computer network spans the world, offers faster inter-
continental transmissions than normal modems, contains giga-
bytes of software and is legal? The answer is:


A network built around universities and schools around the world
The network is available in just about all cities in Europe, 
Scandanavia, North and South America, Asia and Africa. In fact,
if you´ve been able to see through all the hype about Cyberspace, 
but still believe that a global computer network is a kewl idea, 
this is the real life version you want... And it´s mighty kewl!

The things you can get hold of on internet is just about everything
you might think of, and some things you don´t think of, too! The 
services available on Internet are divided into several groups:

File Transfer: 	Normally via FTP (File Transfer Protocol) You can 
	log onto sites that keep all goodies in directories, 
	and you can download it for free. Much like normal
	BBS systems... There are illegal FTP sites too!

Multichat:	IRC is a system which let people log on and chat 
	with eachother, usually in subgroups such as 
	"hackers", "Elite dudes" or "hen-lovers" Serveral 
	kewl dudes from the PC and AMIGA scenes are 
	regulary chatting on IRC.

News:	A system of spreading news around the globe. The news 
	are divided into topics, for example comp.sys.amiga.hard-
	ware and comp.sys.cbm, where dudes like Antitrack and 
	The Chief from the scene write about there ideas and 
	problems. If you need information, and believe somebody 
	knows the answer, just post a question on news. 
	Latests News: there will be a comp.sys.cbm.binaries section
	where new C64 stuff will be available for downloading!

System resources:		By using TELNET you can log on to other 
		computers around the globe and run public
		programs such as file search systems, which 
		let you search for a file around the world, or
		search for books, by logging into the library 
		of congress.

E-Mail:	   This is a big service, Almost 10 million people are con-
	   nected to e-mail (nobody knows exactly how many!) for 
	   example Bacchus, Tron, Watchman, Antitrack, 
	   The Chief, most dudes in Triangle and many, many 
	   others (President Bill Clinton have e-mail!). The big catch
	   is this: If you only can get e-mail, you can use resources 
	   so that the library of congress.

How do you get internet access?

As said before, almost all cities have a local connection, even 
though it might only be 2400 Baud to the local computer, the rest
of the transfer around the world might reach Mbit speed! If you
don´t have the phone#, or haven´t internet access at school, you 
can always talk to the sysop at the nearest College or University,
it shouldn´t be impossible to at least get an e-mail adress.

You might have to pay a monthly fee, but then you can use it as 
much as you want. The big saving is the time to transfer files, and
that you usually only have to pay the local area phone toll. I, 
myself will probably have to pay 150SEK/month for my internet
connection at home, but then I´ll have 2 Mbit transfer directly
onto my harddisk! It won´t take long to save that money by 
cutting down on my phone usuage!

Now over to the connection problem. Most people get their 
access at their school or university, so find out if there in any 
internet e-mail available at your school, and if you can get an 
account. Even if you can´t get ftp, news, telnet, irc or the other 
services, an e-mail account will give you access to these services 
inderectly, I will talk about how that is possible later on. If you 
can´t get e-mail at the school, instution or at work, then you can 
get an account at a commercial dial-up centre. I only know of 
such laces in germany at the moment (supplied by Tony) so here
it comes:

Checkings outside the scene is the the mainsubject in this

series that weren´t that popular on Cinema but´s worthy...

Well,send filmreviews, charts or whatever to:



Look Sharp Homer...                                                                     

Deep Space Nine:

Well, another NEXT GENERATION of the Star Trek Saga.
Not Directed by GENE RODDENBERRY but it plays completely in
the Original Star Trek Universe....

The Story so far....

Deep Space Nine is a Space Station in the Orbit of a Planet
named "Bajo" which was under the Control of a Race named 
the "Cardassians".

As the Cardassians left the Planet they also left their Headquarter
Space Station Deep Space Nine.

The Bajorans asked the Federation of the United Planets for Help
to get their Planet to democracy and to be a Part oof the 

Cpt.Sisco, is the oone who has to overtak the Station which is a
Complete City with Shops and Amusement parts and take it to a
Federation Outpost and to Guarantee the Bajorans Freedom and
Safety against the Cardasians.

Once Arrived with the Enterprise under the Command of
the Wellknown Cpt.Jean Luc Picard he directly comes in some 
trouble as his Peope find a kind of Stabile Wormhole.
This Wormhole Guarantees a Kind of Trading Monopole and
nearly all Races want this Position for their own.

The whole thing comes oout of Control as a Cardassian WarShip
and a Federal Space Glider get lost in the Wormhole.

All in all a nice Series, but the Stories are a bit too boring.
Most of the Time stupid Blah Blah, but the Special Effects are 
like from one of the Best Movies ever made.
Even the "Next Generation" of Star Trek doesn´t have that 
ammount of Special Effects which are made with an Amiga 4ooo.
Who framed the Vulcans?                                                            


Well, a TV Series Directed by Steven Spielberg and 
sponsored by COMMODORE.

The Story so far....

The Date is somewhere in the next Century and Mankind finally 
discovered the last Mystery on Earth. The Oceans.
They settled on the Oceans Ground and several Countrys made
Finacial Alliances to get all the Profit from the Grounds of
the International Oceans

Due to the Fact that there are naturally Borderwars, the Leading
Nations found the "United Earth Organisation ´UEO´"
With Money they got from Donations the built the biggest
Submarine ever, the SeaQuest.

A Ship that is 300 Meters Long, the outher Skin is a Lifeform to 
protect the Ship against the High Pressures of the Deep Waters.

As a Female Captain Ignores the commands from the HQ of the
UEO Northberg, they try to get one of the Designers named 
"Jonathan Bridger" as Captain for the Seaquest.

Bridger has Quitted the navy Service as his Son and his Wife Died
and started to learn Dolphins to Communicate with him.

But finally he Takes over the Command of the Ship and is ready
for a lot of Adventures.

Well, Due to the Fact that the Series is Sponsored by 
Commodore it has a fuckin´ lot of kewl Grafixx and Effects.
But the Storys mostly Suck Disk.
I´m disappointed about Steven Spielbergs work in this
Series and better someone should shoot the 
Storybook Writers......

Better watch Melrose Place instead...                                            

The Demo Zone



(send demos to Oxidy)

Page Instrucions:

Introducion				Page1
Torture III				Page2
Tales of Mystery			Page3
Hall of Fame				Page4


For the last issue i reviewed all the demos released at the Herning
party 1993. But, for some technical reasons, like errors on the disk
we had to skip it. And I´m not very fond of writing it all again.

I have a new form of setting points for the demos. I give extra
points depending on how many parts there is.
Consider, you make a demo with only one part. You make
everything almost perfect. That would result in a very high grade
for the demo. Therefor I give 2 percents of the score extra for
every part. This is just done to make the points more fair.

I will also publish all the scores for every issue, and in the end of
1994 we´ll se what demo scored the best during the year.

Anyway, For this issue I´ve only got my hands on two demos:

Torture III from PADUA
Tales of Mystery from SPIRIT

Please note: I will only give positive scores for the TURN DISK
part. So if there´s only graphics I won´t give any points for code
since it would drag down the average score.

When will BML next demo be out?

Torture III - Padua


You see some heartbeats and hear some beeps. They go faster and
faster and ends with the death of whomever it was.
The line divides and goes apart and the beep turns to music. Some
text followed by the Grim Reaper, DEATH. It fades away, some
more text. A logo is shown and after some seconds blood appears
beneath. Fades, more text and a Torture 3 logo. Text and it fades

Code:   5/10
Gfx:    6/10
Music:  7/10
Design: 7/10


First there a short sample saying "Here we are..." sung by Freddie
Mercury. Some blue ´padua´-sprites appear on top and bottom
and in between a text saying "the stylers are" zooms up. It 
morphs to "back" and then it all fades away.

Code:   5/10
Gfx:    5/10
Music:  7/10
Design: 7/10


The screen fades to grey. Then a paperwrapping animation
making a hole in the middle. A Padua logo fades up in the hole.
The grey sorroundings disappear, the logo changes colors to
braun. It stretches upwards and doubles its size. Moves down and
get some more colors. 
 It starts to load, after a while sideborder scrolls is shown on the
top part of the screen. One infront of the other. 

Code:   6/10
Gfx:    5/10
Music:  6/10
Design: 7/10


The screen goes dark grey. A hand is reaching up on the screen
from the lower border. A circle fades forth between its fingers.
Some 256 pixel morphings take place inside the circle. On top
there´s a lightgrey 1x1 scroller. 

Code:   6/10
Gfx:    5/10
Music:  5/10
Design: 6/10


This part is really weird. That´s mainly because of the strange
tune. On top there´s some text written in different colors. Below,
three interference circles is shown. Unfortunately it´s not actual
interference. After this the part bugs out totally, so I cannot
comment this part further.

Code:   5/10
Gfx:    3/10
Music:  5/10
Design: 4/10


First a short sample saying "This is not over yet.". A T3 logo is
swinging in from the right and stops in the upper left corner.
A disc swings from the left and stops in the bottom right corner.
Two small turn disk texts slides in and stops in the empty spaces.

Gfx:    6/10
Music:  5/10
Design: 6/10


This part is almost too simple. On top and bottom there´s a tiny
Padua sprite-logo. In between a big charplasma. It fades away...

Code:   6/10
Gfx:    3/10
Music:  5/10
Design: 5/10


In the middle a raster divides the screen. The lower half is grey,
and a Padua logo fades forth. Just over the raster there´s a scroll
and on top a seven color bobvector is shown. After a while the
bobs turn into a text writer. 

Code:   7/10
Gfx:    4/10
Music:  5/10
Design: 5/10


A red square is shown in the upper left corner. In the upper
right there´s some greencolored text giving some information.
Below this there´s a Padua logo. In the square they show some
scanned pictures. First a C64 followed by a motorcycle.
Then a picture of Polonus girlfrind, Beata, and
Polonus himself is morphing.

Code:   6/10
Gfx:    5/10
Music:  5/10
Design: 6/10

When will BML next demo be out?
Torture III - Padua cont...            


A fullscreen picture of a rat with a The End logo. A scroll comes
out of the right ear and enters the left one. The rat´s right eye
blinks. After a while it all fades away and a onecolored simple
Padua logo fades up. Some seconds passes and it explodes. 

Code:   5/10
Gfx:    6/10
Music:  6/10
Design: 7/10


Code: (5+5+6+6+4+6+7+6+5)/9 = 5.56
Gfx: (6+5+5+5+3+6+3+4+5+6)/10 = 4.80
Music: (7+7+6+5+5+5+5+5+5+6)/10 = 5.60
Design: (7+7+7+6+4+6+5+5+6+7)/10 = 6.00

Score: (5.56+4.80+5.60+6.00)/4 = 5.49

Amount of parts: 10
Extra: 1.0 + 10 * 0.02 = 1.2

Final Score: 5.49 * 1.2 = 6.59

When will BML next demo be out?

Tales of the Mystery - Spirit


First some graphics advertising ´Spirit Entertainment´. It fades
away, another picture showing a piece of forest. Next picture
appear. Some monks with torches walk on a path up to
Stonehenge. Yet another picture, this one with a logo saying:
´Tales of Mystery´ and below a monk is reaching for the sky in
some sort of ritual. The monkpart of the picture disappears and
it loads. Some of the graphics are converted but atleast they have
the courtesy to tell us.

In the middle of the screen some scrollers are raytraced upon a
ball above. Below, some trees on each side of a square where a
number of pictures are shown.

On top of the screen we have (again) some trees with a square in
the middle. In the square we have some shade-line-vectors. A new
effect. Underneath this a Spirit logo with some kind of movie-
flasher. On top of the graphics there´s an expanded spritescroller.

First of all a FLI-picture slides in from the right and slides out
after some seconds.
A halfscreenpicture of some eyes and two hands reaching against
us. Between the hands a small Spirit logo.
Below this there´s some scrollers on top of a 2 screen wide
AFLI-mover. Just one thing I dislike, the effect is too far to the
right. I know it´s not possible to centre it, but it sure looks ugly.

Gfx:    7/10 (Ans)

An IFLI picture is shown. Nothing more to say. 
Since this isn´t actually a part I won´t count the code in this one.

Gfx:    8/10
Music:  8/10
Design: 3/10


Two logos appear on the middle of the screen. One saying
´Tales of´ and one saying ´mystery´. They move apart and stop at
the top and bottom of the screen. On the right middle part of the
screen some text explains what´s happening.
In the middle a poor starfield with some vectorbobs. After a
while you get some filled vectors. And as the final they put it all
together. Vectorbobs with filled vectors around it. Looking good...

Code:   9/10 (Rcc)
Gfx:    5/10 (Ans,Cane)
Music:  8/10 (Dos)
Design: 8/10


Code: (5+8+8+8+9)/5 = 7.60
Gfx: (7+7+6+7+8+5)/6 = 6.67
Music: (8+8+7+7+8+8)/6 = 7.67
Design: (8+7+7+6+3+8)/6 = 6.50

Score: (7.60+6.67+7.67+6.50)/4 = 7.11

Amount of parts: 6
Extra: 1.0 + 6 * 0.02 = 1.12

Final score: 7.11 * 1.12 = 7.96

When will BML next demo be out?
