01. Dec 2003 00:48
Much cooler would have been to actually convert the DX:IW demo onto C64, being only 2 quite small maps it wouldnt be that big effort :)
01. Dec 2003 00:49
lol, off you go lasse .D
01. Dec 2003 00:52
Why always me? :)) Ive released an enginesource which gives everyone quite easy possibility for doing so.. though of course its more elite to program everything yourself from ground up :)
01. Dec 2003 18:57
Not fair. I sucked in the music compo :( - FIIIIIX :D

MAdAboutDane... Madona music collection finally out. If you like Madonas Ray Of Light album, that is probably one of the best X-Mas presents we could receive.
02. Dec 2003 19:27
What a farce !!! :P
02. Dec 2003 20:16
Oh,s*d it :) I dont care!
02. Dec 2003 20:52
Right..... Time for me to stop talking out of my backside for once :)
I did not realise that I was looking at the wrong page in the results section. I was looking at the Jury Voting (Ten people). I noticed that the scene were not downvoting me after all, I scored 299 points, and I am pleased with these results.
For those who voted me those 299 points. Many thanks and I appreciate it :)
Dalezy, thanks for the razor - Its about time I had changed the razor on my Mach 3 Turbo :)

Please dont flood the reactions Richard...

at least he is not just talking to himself :-D

Why arent the releses at the Willow page not zipped? Most C64 users have 2 drives and there are unzip tools for C64. Pity the person who has slow dialup and no compression.
04. Dec 2003 08:29
Thinking about the fact that you have to download them from somewhere and that there are only a few people around using their c64 to go online i think there is even less reason for unzipped stuff on the net.....
04. Dec 2003 15:38
Is the deadline being extended for the Christmas compo? Two days is a little tight...!
04. Dec 2003 19:04
Yes it is!
New deadline is december 18th, webpage will be updated soon with first release (music).
04. Dec 2003 19:08
Ill see what kinda code I can dig out for the compo :)
04. Dec 2003 21:29
Hmm.. shall I also post news if I make some change in C64 software build process, for example optimize my makefiles or switch to another crossassembler? :)
04. Dec 2003 21:37
Sure, let us all spam c64.sk!
By the way, i reinstalled win98 a few days ago..do you think it would have been worth posting?
04. Dec 2003 22:17
@ : Maybe simply ask the orgas about it? Anyhow, Willow Party
releases are now available from Goin 4 Gold
as one zip file.
@  & : I disagree with your point of view. Since WiNGS
is an operating system for a SuperCPU enhanced C64, it fits here pretty well imho.
05. Dec 2003 00:49
id have said the post wasnt about WiNGS as such, its only about the development process - is this site now the WiNGS developers weblog...?
05. Dec 2003 01:01
Cadaver, good point. T.M.R. good point.
CreaMD (trying to hide in the corner)
05. Dec 2003 01:20
THOUSANDS of people ??? Yes, on those HCC picture pages I could see like 20-30 or so ... damn you buggers ...
Id LOVE to see a mass of people just coming for the commodore brand ... someone gimme some real excitement, but lame news are no news ... ---> my vote for the beta news ...
05. Dec 2003 06:43
The WiNGS can affect many users as you can download sources and compile/assemble the whole lot yourself. If it was totally internal and closed project then of course not here.
05. Dec 2003 09:02
As this was big news for Wings, I dont have nothing against posting it here. Its the product of a very talented scener anyway so whats the problem? Thanks to MacGyvers for being Wings protege :))
05. Dec 2003 10:21
Okay, if were all going to start taking pro/anti WiNGS stances and ,since im not a WiNGS protege im going to play Devils advocate here (my regular stance is indifference) lets work out how many people this post actually affects. First, how what percentage of C64 users have a SuperCPU? Now, what percentage of that user base use WiNGS? Then we need to know, what percentage of those users actually compile the thing for themselves rather than just grabbing the distribution version? And *finally*, how many of that final, rather finite number of people (whom Stryyker describes as "many users" but i cant see it being that large a user base) cant read a paragraph on the download site saying that things have changed?
(Updated the T.A.C. post to install a hyperlink.)
05. Dec 2003 10:42
This is a waste of time imho. Everyone has his own opinion, and if ppl dont learn that c64.sk should try to cover MANY aspects of C64 production, I cant help it. There will always be disagreements. I now get back and work on projects instead of getting lost in discussions.
05. Dec 2003 10:46
I have no issues with it being moved to beta but its also like VIC20 users. There is not alot of real VIC20s being used. Maybe Im upset that SCPU bashing is fine but VIC20 gets pampered. SCPU needs a C64 compatible.
05. Dec 2003 14:28
If sources are downloadable then info about change of developemnt system is interesting, but definitely no for main news. Its okay to keep it for about 1 day, but then well move to beta-news which is what Im going to do right now.
05. Dec 2003 14:31
If anyone wants to argue, it?s just, not a release. This is a news server not a web-blog.
05. Dec 2003 14:38
C64hq update (20 interviews with inactive sceners), and Wings update (switching from Make to Jam) moved to related news.
05. Dec 2003 15:13
About the interviews with the sceners: well, at least some of them are active, take Dr. Voice.
05. Dec 2003 18:04
Welle Erdball making games? Wow :)
05. Dec 2003 22:14
perhaps all the wings/party pix/beta/useless crapola can be moved to a various hyperlinks underneath the c64 portal logo and be read in a popup? When you post news, you can simply add a tab on which section you want to add the news to. Save us searching thru junk that quite frankly us of the 64th reich do not want to read.
uber scene nazi :)
06. Dec 2003 01:12
Yeah! Pop-ups regeln das Haus!
And by the way what about having beta-reactions too?
Just an idea to let our spam be in the right place in future times
06. Dec 2003 07:13
ill give you a beta reaction.. batty boy. aiiiii
06. Dec 2003 17:15
Give DECENT reactions and include your NAME, otherwise we will delete them - simple.

09. Dec 2003 22:01
Here is a good one too...
It is a brandnew forum SPECIALLY for the C-64. It has groups for games, emulators hardware etc. Any body can post messages but when you register you can also edit your own messages, make polls and post pictures...
09. Dec 2003 22:18
Jeeeeeeeeesus (or shoudl i call Jaack?) ?
I do not really see any reason to build up just another forum but well, to everybody what he likes.
Richard: wouldnt the christmas game be a rerelease rather then a new(!) game?
10. Dec 2003 12:39
And why was the Maniac Mansion video walkthrough moved to Related News? Isn\t it interesting?
10. Dec 2003 12:58
According to C64.sk guidelines, C64 executables are preffered. Bud video valkthrough of Maniac Mansion is very interesting.

Bug found in Sharkz II: it doesnt take into account the possibility of a draw..
10. Dec 2003 16:38
9.90 Eur for 25 Disks?
10. Dec 2003 17:22
"Bug found in Sharkz II: it doesn?t take into account the possibility of a draw.."
Oops :) I forgot that it is possible to score a draw in my game. Ill go and fix this problem right now then upload the newer version (without posting any news about the update).
One last thing, to one and all
10. Dec 2003 18:59
Shortened the title of 5 1/4 inch disks news post.
10. Dec 2003 19:39
Okay. I have now updated Shark II. You can now click here
to download the updated version.
10. Dec 2003 20:44
blazon where are you now ???
10. Dec 2003 22:16
Looks as if Blazon has struck. And also Destiny.
10. Dec 2003 22:47
BTW, who uploaded the original versions of my games on to the CBM ftps? I know it wasnt me, but thanks anyway :)
10. Dec 2003 23:52

Commodore Scene giving away free C64 computers to new UKSubscribers for CS2004? Never seen that done before. It probably be good for those who want to return to the proper C64, than tacky emulation :)

c64.rulez.org server been changed or something? It doesnt seem to be processing php files but expects me to download them. I tried a few browsers. I was trying to reach the Onslaught site, www.onslaughters.org
18. Dec 2003 12:20
Ive been informed that PHP has been disabled for all things hosted at c64.rulez.org
18. Dec 2003 20:10
18. Dec 2003 21:21
Because php is evil, evil, evil! ;-)
18. Dec 2003 23:47
the other week the server was broken into via PHP so its a security threat and the admins dont have time to go throught it all. Easiest method is to disable PHP.
20. Dec 2003 07:02
also c64.sk post from tide is actually leechable from csdb.. booyaksha ya batty boy selektah!
20. Dec 2003 10:28

A bit OT, but anyway - does anyone know whats up with RKO? Ive been getting "Cant connect to the page" since something like two weeks. :(((
30. Dec 2003 16:51
@ 88: What does OT and RKO stand for?
30. Dec 2003 16:55
OT - Offtopic. RKO is Remix Kwed Org. C64 sid remix site.
30. Dec 2003 17:03
btw. remix64.com works.
30. Dec 2003 17:59
Yeah, but D/Ls point to RKO. Sniff. Sniff! Beeheee :~(
30. Dec 2003 18:12
remix.kwed.org is down due to a disk crash. Hopefully it will return soon...
