November at c64.sk

Written by Wotnau/Dmagic

? ? ? I'm getting scared by the activity at the Portal. 39 alpha news items in November. It's getting harder and harder to write these summaries! Anyway, thanks for the attention you pay to us and keep on posting! And now let's go for the summary:

Creativity

? ? ? Concerning games, November brought Balloonacy by TND (Richard Bayliss) which climbed through two fixes up to version 1.2. Another game release is The Session V1.4 by More.Gore. 6R6 of Nostalgia jammed his statement about the impossibility of making a disk version of the Double Dragon cartridge and released Double Dragon 100% with everything. Doesn't need any further explanation. And, finally, Lasse Oorni announced his next game project – a C=64 conversion of his own game BOFH: Servers Under Siege. While waiting for it, you can enjoy his NTSC fixes of Metal Warrior II and III.
? ? ? Demo lovers will probably enjoy the stuff from X-2001. Their other choices are TRIP/Creators or 4-Mat's Dentro (at the updated Cosine webpage) or Hoth's Firstro.
? ? ? If you're interested in bringing one of the computing activities to perfection, you can't miss Exilent Pixels/Anubis – Exile's gfx collection. If you're into SID at the first place, get Euro Beats 2 by Richard/TND/Civitas and Goat Tracker Compo pack and results.
? ? ? Tools? DreamLoad V2.2 (some fixes done, update is recommended according to the authors), John Player V1.5. Crossies among us will like Goat Tracker V1.11, Serial Slave V0.6 (your PC as a virtual HD for you C=64, CIA-IDE interface, and C64see V1.0 – a C=64 oriented plugin for your ACD See.

Scene Buzz & Society

? ? ? The scene event of the month was surely X2001. Next to the stuff and results we also linked you to a pile of photos. Sinister's are the most amusing ones IMHO and Birdie is the absolute winner! JakTRip asked everyone who lost contact with Protovision to mail him again because his mailbox crashed. Two other parties that took place were Spoletium 4 and Vision 2001. Warriors of the Wasteland, full of graphicians and musicians, desperately need coders. Interested people should apply at the WOW homepage. Thorgal left ROLE. In the Net, you can check out the update of AAY 64 (in case you don't know, AAY means „All About Your…“) or visit the Padua homepage (back in life again). The Scene business mailing list might help people around the C=64 find their job in the computer environment. And last, the Minigame compo results were published.

Reviews

? ? ? The c64.sk staff brought you three reviews last month – Richard had a look at The Session V1.4, TDJ reviewed Royal Arte and I almost fell from exhaustion when raving at Euro Beats 2.

Gonna Go Over There?

? ? ? Wanna party? Eat this:

14. – 16. 12. Mastersystem – retro party mainly for the C64 – Sweden
15. – 16. 12. Mail Madness II (Contact : x-data@gmx.de)
- Germany
27. – 29. 12. The Party 2k1
28. – 30. 12. Out of Orderia VI – Germany
11. – 13. 1. 2002 The Alternative Party – Finland


? ? ? I think it's a pity that the organizers can't agree on dates which wouldn't overleap but who am I to judge? 

Anyway, have a nice December!
