Domination 03 ch13 Party Time
...and its party time!!
Boozing, smoking, music and women. All of some of the pleasures we in the scene indulge ourselves every once and a while. But what better way to advertise for such gatherings than in the Domination! This issue we have selected party reports from the Christmas and New Year period and also some new party fliers which have been brought to this magazine from those distributed at Herning and Tribute '94. Now over to sledge of Fairlight...
Tribute '94 party summary by Sledge/Fairlight.
Firstly I can hardly remember anything of it in detail. I’ll just do some sort of points detail: (because of alcoholic consumption at the party :))
- 250 people (nearly) came to the party which was located in GBG in a school. Only 170 did pay, so rumours say.
- Discount 2000 was there and showed off the Flash8 card with software to it like demos, games and a special assembler for it that can handle 7500 lines and use the native instructions of the 16-bit CPU (same as in the C65 and SNES). Oneway coded like hell to get their Byteboiler Flash8 ready, but they didn't get it working 100 percent. (it's going to be released soon anyway)
- Groups like: Fairlight, Triad, Genesis Project, Avantgarde, Noice, Censor, Camelot, Plush, Byterapers, Oxyron, Light, Delta, Active, Chromance and Shape were there among with all the fake labels like Tapir, LSD, Afrika etc...
- The coder of the Moz(ic)art editor was also there, real drunk and stripped for the people... he showed his dick! haha!
- Tribute must have been the best boozing party ever in the C64 history and the feeling was on top under the jeopardy competition with guys like: Bob/Censor, Alfatech/Triad and Geggin/Censor doing a real nice show under the jeopardy competition... Bod/Talent never heard the questions and Alfatech told him the answers..:)
- the promised bar and nightclub with disco was cancelled. many guys were disappointed about it. but as there were plenty of pizzeria places and a booze-store nearby they had quite fun anyway.
- the demo competition was a sad chapter. with only 2 cool demos: Byteraper's and Oxyron's. the rest was just a show of old 80's demo coding.
- graphics compo was real nice, and there were hardly any bad picture.
- music compo was great, mostly, the best was ofcoz the one from EVS/20CC who won too.. and that was it, one of the best boozing parties ever!
Comments: a pity about the demo contribution, but this was made up for in Herning. but onto the future...
