New Defacto2 Tweaks and Features

Well we have been doing a bit of work behind the scenes at Defacto2 in the past couple of months. Tweaking and featuring adding to the site and so we thought it was about time that we let all the readers know about our changes.

Firstly we have changed our site search function. Instead of results being redirecting to the Google homepage. Each query is now displayed from within the site. This gives you the familiar Defacto2 interface while still using the power of Google's engine on the back end.

Digg Icon The Scene News articles now incorporate Digg It buttons. This means Digg It members can now easily submit or vote on articles and news reports posted on Defacto2.

The Group Repository has received a number of cosmetic updates. We tried to make the repository group file listings easier to browse through and use. In fact if you haven't gone to the repository in the last few months you might by pleasantly surprised by the number of new groups that have since been added.

Another new feature added to the repository is the file timeline. This allows you to select a time period and display all the (dated) files hosted on our site, listed in a chronological order that matches the provided date range. Listed are artworks, nfo files, documents, magazines and other various files. Not only are file details displayed but we have also include entries of key scene events in the listings. So if you were looking for files released during a major event then this tool should be able to help out immensely.

Also located in the repository are some new archived web pages from the late 1990's. Of interest is the lost Fairlight flash website that never made it into service and a few mirrors of earlier Defacto2 sites going back to 1998.

You may have also noticed we now list the newest added files on the main page. This is linked to a full application that not only allows you to see the 500 most recent file additions. You can also list file revisions and site additions and changes. Of cause we have also incorporated some new web feeds for use with the new files function.

YouTubeThe cracktros section has received some minor tweaking. We are now also in the process of video recording selected DOS cracktros that will be hosted on YouTube! We currently have 20 cracktros recorded and the videos are linked directly from the cracktro web page.

Finally we have also updated the File Submission page. It has been renamed to Wanted Files & User Submissions and now contains a listing of some of our more needed requests.

[ c64.sk ] Fancy music on your SEUCK games?

[ c64.sk ]
Fancy music on your SEUCK games?
Released on CSDB is an original utility that will allow you to add music and change raster bar colours on to games created with the Shoot Em Up Construction kit then save the game. It is called "SEUCK BUSTER", written by Richard Bayliss. Warning, Action Replay/Retro Replay will be required. It was coded for fun of course.

[ raww.org ] Vortex Tracker II v1.0 b14 released

[ raww.org ]
Vortex Tracker II v1.0 b14 released
For all you so-called "musicians" there's a new version of Sergey Bulba's excellent Vortex Tracker II out. Aside from some changes related to "Turbo-AY" mode, v1.0 b14 is mostly a small bugfix, so you'll want to get it and keep up-to-date.

[ raww.org ] Sundown 2006 Finished

[ raww.org ]
Sundown 2006 Finished
So, I'm back from Sundown. I now need a lot of sleep, but alas I'm back at work. Only 5 days to the weekend. The party was good - some great productions which you can grab over at Pouet.net. Of note there were 3 ZX releases which is a high number for a multi-format party. "<3 krunk" was the latest release by Ate Bit. I don't recall where this came in the results, tho' I do know that the winner was "Koopaville" by Gasman and Equinox. It deserved to win if only for the fantastic raster effect. It has to be seen, but make sure you use a 128k/+2 as it was timed specifically for my ZX.
A "new group" hit the scene also - Ate Arse consisted of me & evilpaul with Gasman on the AY. The first release is "<3 smash", which is... well you probably had to be at the party to "get" it. I also released an "unfinished" screen$ into the oldschool graphics compo, and came a staggering last place. Maybe I'll finish it some day. Maybe.
So that's it. It's all good. More news when I wake up.

Edit - first few photos have popped up over on ukDemoScene.org.

[ Defacto2 - The Scene News with Site News ] Steal This Film Part 1

[ Defacto2 - The Scene News with Site News ]
Steal This Film Part 1
A new video documentary on the rise of the social and political impact of illegal file sharing is now floating around the various Torrent sites near you. But unlike most films found there, this one is legal to redistribute and uses the P2P Torrent network to their advantage.

Titled Steal This Film and running for just over 32 minutes. This wide screen DVD quality documentary is the first part of a greater series that intends to focus on piracy in general.

Part one covers the raid on the Swedish based web site, The Pirate Bay. The US governments involvement in the raid and the eventually political backlash that arose including the formation of a new Swedish political party, The Pirate Party.

Steal This Film

While I personally found at times the film dragged on for a little bit. And there were problems some with the various audio levels and synching. I did find it a worth while download and an interesting watch.

Though I do find it ironic that the more underground the pirate scene been forced into, the more mainstream the notion of digital piracy has become.

ZX Spectrum Picture Gallery

[ Oliver's personal blog - Sinclair ]
Would you believe that following pictures were made on old trusted ZX Spectrum? I still remember when I have started with my Speccy, the graphics wasn't that great, only later on, after year 1992 we started to see better, much improved graphics. Don't forget, there were some limitations, you can't really compare it to today's standards. Still, with little effor from the graphics designer side it was possible to produce results as shown here. (...)
