#18 Themed music compos, IQ talks Shadertoy

[ ZINE: The Radio Show ] #18 Themed music compos, IQ talks Shadertoy

We kick off this month with an audience question: Are themed music compos a net positive or net negative? Is there a loss of interest in music compos in general? After that, a discussion about demos using stock assets and commercial engines - is it worth it? Should it be shunned upon? Finally, the legend himself, IQ joins us to tell us the story and beginnings of Shadertoy, how he views the growth of the site and what makes it special, and retells some parts of his stellar career, how his beginnings in the scene allowed him to have it, and his views on the direction of the scene.

Send us your questions, suggestions and voice messages to zineradioshow@scene.org

Join the discussion on the Demoscene Discord server or our own.

Those entrance fees in your currency

[ Demoparty.net News ] Those entrance fees in your currency

When travelling often you might not have an idea how much the entrance fee for that strange party in another country might be.

Available today is the possibility to set your preferred currency in the settings which will convert all entrance fees over the site in that valuta you know. Take a look at Silly Venture 2021 Winter e.g.

This will always be done with todays exchange rates, which might or might not make sense for parties from the past (see Evoke 1998 e.g.).

Please, report missing currencies or any problems.

Validating links

[ Demoparty.net News ] Validating links

Demoparty.net has reached nearly 3000 outgoing links, especially for older parties some of them no longer work.

We have implemented a procedure to permanently monitor those links and replace them with a link to Wayback Machine so that you can still take a look at those nice sites that once promoted parties like Mekka & Symposium 2002.

Please, drop us a note in case this feature should not work as expected.

[ ZINE: The Radio Show ] #17 Running the gamut - with Ferris

The versatility of the scene can be overwhelming, but also a sprawling playground for those who want to experience more and more of the possibilities of it all, and none has done more sweeping work across many areas than Ferris, who joins us to talk about his beginnings, his motivation to oscillate between oldschool and newschool platforms, his struggle to give up artistic control, and his desire to look for the next challenge.

#16 Even nostalgia isnt the same anymore

[ ZINE: The Radio Show ] #16 Even nostalgia isn't the same anymore

The scene is nothing if not a giant ball of sobbing about how everything was better when computers were just growing their eighth bit - but is that a good thing? Are we taking up the space from the future with the past? What's better, to make a fresh demo on an old platform, or an old demo on a fresh platform? The show dives into these weighty questions while, naturally, reminiscing about old times, because of course.

MountainBytes 2022: COVID survey results are in

[ Demoparty.net News ] MountainBytes 2022: COVID survey results are in

Some weeks ago Echtzeit has created a survey on your thoughts on COVID measures for demoparties.

Now that party organising across Europe is finally picking up again, debates have sparked around the right level of measures, safety concepts and the vaccine in the demoscene, just like everywhere else.

In order to support organisers with reliable numbers, we conducted a survey and collated the results from 79 respondents from the (online) active scene into this analysis. Organisers and others alike may freely use and reference this document for their COVID-concepts, party planning, etc.
