From C64 Diskmag Wiki
this time THA BIZ+MIX will try to start the story of the c-64. looooong time ago i read an article in brutal recall issue 10 some guy i can't remember who wanted someone to write the story of the scene. what a fucking great idea.. i think that's retty right. i say as you that a lot of newcomers (as my self) dont know shit about the history in the world of the c-64. i still remember the good old times when we saw a lot of good and revolutionary code from the groups. who can remember when 1001 crew made the first sideborderscroll or the legendary tmc with all his great demo's such as game-music try take a look back and remember all the dope routines which was invented in the past. routines as : a simple split screen (and later on rasterbars) all borders open esco's fld dycp or dysp tech tech hardware scroll and some of the 'latest' inventions vectors plots bobs plasmas f.l.i well all these routines are today ''everyday-code'' but just think back some years and everybody would have sworn that alot of them couldn't be done ever... but they did anyway..... (and that's the main-reason to continue) who remember the war between sodan and the 1001 crew. not to mention the : federation against danish elite.. well as some of us know then sodan and 1001 came to the result : quote 'that sodan is the best but that 1001 always is and has been the first.' yo these were the days were we saw a lot of cracks from groups like : dynamic duo a.c.e hotline 1001 crew the softteam u.s.a team a.c.c swedish cracking crew and the list goes on and on... well at the time there was a whole lot more games than today. but at that time you could make alot of money by selling crax. therefore many softwarehouses had to close down.they didn't get paid for the games becoz you could buy a cracked ver- sion for 5 - 10% off the real price as a result of this softwarehouses star- ted to hunt the pirates. the promised rewards if someone back- stabbed a pirate and got him nailed for selling crax. (but i don't think they ever got someone nailed for selling and cracking games) well more nostalgic talk.. try sit back and remember the times. remember the musicwizards .. people as ROB HUBBARD MARTIN GALWAY almost monopolized the music scene. yeeaahhh boy these were the days... but nowadays a lot of people don't give a shit about things like that or a lot don't even know about all that... but i'll support you lets find someone with a good memory and lets write the history of the commy 64.... fuck i got so irritated that i couldn't remember the dudes name.. so i had to stop writing and load up brutal recall #10 to find it.. and ofcourse.. bachhus of fairlight.. well i don't know if he's still active in the scene (i don't think soo) but i would very much try to follow up his idea. i would like to try to write the history of the c-64 scene. B U T that requires the help of you all. especially all the old-timers are welcom to drop a line . more specific then i am looking for information about everythig concerning the scene: information like : - who cracked the 1st game - who started making intros - who started making demos - who made the first magazine - which groups where at the beginning and up to now - which group is the oldest and still active - which person/group invented a new routine (date/year) and so on and so on .. well i think you got the point now i hope ya'll will help me to do this story of the c-64. help me to get it as correct as possible please spread this mag/chapter to every- body coz i need the help of every scene- freak. and for every mag-editor please put in a note about my idea and my adress.
