01. Apr 2004 09:43
Btw. if it wasnt Tokafondo I was planning to post the news myself.. but with more "ironic" touch ;-) Fortunately he prevented me from possible retro PR troubles ;-) (I was going to write that another nasty retro site bite the dust and that it seems that our blackmaailing activites finally brought their fruuits..you know that sort of stuff ;-))
01. Apr 2004 12:05

Yeah it?s the most anoying trick of the all, I hate it aswell! ;-)
01. Apr 2004 22:50
It may be April 1st, but whoever added news as grr is the fool themselves, April Fool ends after 12:00pm (Midday) It is now (here in the UK 21:50pm)

Jesus, that Turrican vid does look impressive!
05. Apr 2004 17:26
it really is.... to bad he didnt show some stuff from the other levels aswelll....one of them has a crazy 16 colors parallax scroller...
05. Apr 2004 22:47
I wanna have a cool promo-video directly recorded with sound running instead of aegs monitor showing stuff from the game. Those spaceship-levels look great (and very very unfair )
06. Apr 2004 00:17
i feel sorry for that poor, abused monitor! =-)

Disk usage, about five what? GB, physical hard drives, 5.25" floppies or something else?
08. Apr 2004 19:42
MB... but its a very vague estimate ;-)
11. Apr 2004 06:28
I hope that was an April Fools joke, but I have to say, that when I saw that note today (April 10th), I panicked. Well, its still there, so the joke is on me--much more effective, since I wasnt expecting it this late.
11. Apr 2004 13:05
I suppose you mean Lemon64 down, right?
11. Apr 2004 15:54

i mean, the link for the t3 video
12. Apr 2004 19:06
creamd: i was having both financial and health troubles the last year so i still own the prizes for the winners (the t-shirts are done, but the postal fees are enoromous). so if someone takes the prize trouble off my back, im ready to organize another compo. otherwise, im sorry, but ill have to refuse the idea (i hardly have any money after two months of hospitalisation).
12. Apr 2004 20:05
I heard about your health problemos. Im glad you are back and strong! I didnt know that there was problem like this. How about moving this conversation to privacy.

Hey PrisonFlybeast, welcome back :). Im relieved to see youre doing all right again.

to the partyscope. Lets wait until the homepage gets filled with some content ;-)
13. Apr 2004 15:57
Partyvoters must be on drugs! Turrican 3 Intro palce 2 and Dreams Demo only plasced on 4th place? Huh? So for the masses a slideshow with a scroller is by far more impressive then the demo i voted no. 1 ):. At least the pc winner-demo really deserved it.
13. Apr 2004 19:31
2Deev: I was at the partyplace, and the workstages seemed suspect because the soldiers were already fully pixeled - we merely saw them being shifted and the blood-filter being added. Thats why there was doubt, not as much as about the picture arrangement. Imo, if you had attached stages 5, 10, 13 and 15/16 for the party, it wouldve been clearer how the soldiers were built and pixeled. But I do think the remaining workstages solve the puzzle right here right now. Jolly good job!
14. Apr 2004 01:32
yeah I realise it was partially my fault for picking a bad selection of stages. After having it pointed out to me, I could see how people could get such an impression, but I figured Id upload the lot to show I have nothing to hide! :)
14. Apr 2004 17:52
pi: smash could have handed in a notefile for the compo and be in the top 3 .... namevoting rulez :=P
14. Apr 2004 19:58
OFFTOPIC: We have kompuuuuuteeeers which can beeat yoooor compuuuteeerz... ;-/ anyway after all I expected far more retardted and perverted PC demo from Metal Votze than this "Winnerdemo" ;-) Thumbs up for making quite a cool demo, guys.
15. Apr 2004 12:49
A little cleanup...
Added 7D4 Demo Party to the partyscope, moved "360ARM" to the Related News and fixed the link in "?360 ARM? - Update"

No, it seems that the pointless and rather pathetic posting still remains in the news. Oh, and it is not very anonymous either. It is signed "Cupid".

29. Apr 2004 13:18
that c64-in-one looks disturbing.... going to be a cheapass crap thing on a chip with a bunch of poorly reprogrammed games. just like the atari thingy.....baaaaahhhhh retrowankers my ass.
29. Apr 2004 14:11
Groepaz, you are right. It would most probably be reprogrammed stuff not a hardware capable of running native C64 software.
29. Apr 2004 14:49
looking at the pics it will be great to sit on it, theres even two seats for your testicl
29. Apr 2004 15:20
muhahahaha, at least it has some ergonomy :)
29. Apr 2004 15:28
Too good for me that I didnt dare posting this as news and taking the infamy :-D
29. Apr 2004 16:55
dr.Hirodo.. ;-) you could post it and stay poritically correct and compatible with our elite haxor radical undreground opinions. You could e.g. use the title.. Tulip and Ironstone woke up after months... Subject: Tulip and ironstone finally revealed their "great" plan to produce c64 in joystick. I just ask why this thing lasted so long to come up with. I dont want to publish any predictions, but Im 100% sure this thing will end like web-it. Signed the fanatic scene fundamentalist - put your name here ;-)
29. Apr 2004 21:16
According to some c.s.cbm posts, this device could very well be a hardware compatible C64, at least part of it. Rumour says it is derivated from a well-known Commodore related reprogrammable project that yet hasnt seen the mass production phase.
Well have to wait and see if this is true, and to what extent Ironstone will be able to offer game upgrades to the device.
29. Apr 2004 21:52
(The Tulip/Ironstone Thing)-> LOL EXTREME
I really hope they have a stand on E3, probably next to the Phantom stand. Seriously though, the idea sounds as powerful as the C64GS. I like it.
But I would like it even more if it were a portable system with a little bit of RAM and a transfer cable so that you can choose the games (or demos) youd like to play on a quality color lcd display. Sort of like an iPod for .d64 files. Of course, this would require a PC as a prerequisite, but you could still place 30 games, say, on the RAM by default so that even the PC-less have some w4r32 to get started with.
Still, Im a good sport and anything c64 related gets my stamp of approval. Go, Tulip/Ironstone! Best of luck! w00t w000000t!
29. Apr 2004 22:02
Bwahahah. Nice try Tulip, but you can do better than that!
30. Apr 2004 10:47
What, in your opinion, should Tulip have done?
30. Apr 2004 12:44
In my opinion (except of all those great revealed (they said they prepare a big great c64 portal if I remember right) and unrevealed plans) they should officially declare support fo selected C64 game and hardware developers. Grant them distribution of their stuff with official C64 logo. This wouldnt cost them a penny and make their image in community look much better. If this non-expenisve image improvement plan will work I would slovly start with new commercial releases around the C64 brand. With image of company which supports commodore 64 (I mean retro, not demoscene in this case ;-) comunity it will be easier for them to sell even average C= branded card. Now they are just company which tries to squeeze some money from Commodore 64 fans. ;-)
30. Apr 2004 12:46
"grant them distribution" - I mean.. allow them to distribute stuff with official C= logo attached.
30. Apr 2004 12:47
IMO the mark must be spreaded and all over the world by all means, not to be owned and locked in a locker..
30. Apr 2004 12:48
Especially now when its credit is so low..
30. Apr 2004 19:53
Why does the site so often tells me:
"Some error has happened..."? Is it downgraded to TRaSh 80 or something?
I am sure the problem isnt on my side, since I tryied 3 different browsers already
(2 on the Amiga and 1 On the PeCe) throught LAN and Dial up always with same result.
30. Apr 2004 23:04
I usually get this error when I do a lot of downloads and my dial-up connection is crawling
30. Apr 2004 23:23
Its probably PHPs timeout message on server-response. I get it at least 5 times out of 10. Quite annoying, to be frank.
02. May 2004 23:35
[85-88]: Doesnt Tulip grant rights to use the logo (commercially) after applying to them, or do they charge money from anyone wanting to use it? The reason they put hard words in the press release was because a number of (in particular German, IIUC) unidentifyable companies have begun selling all kinds of crap using a C=commodore logotype during the years noone seemed to actively care. Maybe they could have put it in a more enthusiastic tone, as those who dont care about trademark infringement will not react until the lawsuit arrives and those working with items really related to the Commodore history will only get hostile.
