This one slipped by us, but it's noteworthy so we'll double back and make sure people know. The Versatile Commodore Emulator (VICE) came out with a new version, and it's probably a good idea to, you know, update. Grab it at the VICE website now! :)
We'll post the general update list below, in addition there are a number of updates for specific platforms etc.
-keybufcommand now works properly for all emulators and RAM sizes.
The fine people that arrange Solskogen are trying to further improve the conditions for oldschool platforms at their party this summer, and to that effect just published a supremely nerdy blog entry about just how they're going to achieve that.
Also, Solskogen has tickets out. Sun guaranteed. Bleep bloop.
After the release of the massive Sound of SceneSat Volume 4 last night, we had a good look at the previous editions and found they were not in the best shape - credits missing, tunes not given proper dates... so we put on a fresh pot of coffee this morning, and got stuff somewhat in order. Now, our hope is that everyone who has a few minutes will get busy - populate those music entries with comments, cover art, download links, youtube videos, you name it. Let's make these collections shine - god knows the guys at SceneSat deserve a first rate coverage right here. Go, team!
...and once you're done with all that, don't forget to offer up a few euros for the latest (or any of the older ones) SoS over on Bandcamp. We'll never cover the cost they have taken on to make all this music, but we can at least start giving back a little - so, "pay what you want" - but show them some appreciation.
You can now read all about the next edition of the quite awesome German extravaganza that is Evoke!
Don't know about Evoke you say? Well, it's one of the larger demo parties, held every year since 1997 in the beautiful city of Cologne. You can click through to the party series overview on Demozoo, to have a look at the releases from previous editions, while you start shopping for flights. :)
Last but not least in that marathon weekend of demoscene activity, releases from Birdie are in! Birdie is not as renowned as some other shinier demoparties, but it's been running for 25 years and has given many Swedish LAN goers a glimpse of what the demoscene is about.
