 The Dark Court Special - Floppy 2004    
The Dark Court Special - Floppy 2004Another edition of Floppy has passed, so I guess it's time for another Dark Court as well. By now you should know the routine: I tell you what I think about a bunch of demos, and then you collectively attack me on my point of view. After all, why change a winning formula?
Here are the reviews of the top 5.

hmm... a number of personal thoughts of mine... i think, if you have something to say and decide to do a demo to say it, then you can use whatever you feel is necessary for the message. but i personally wouldn’t put in something so that a bigger audience would understand,,, i would also like to get better and better with my coding skills so that my technical skills don’t limit my imagination.

if you watch wok zombie and think that it is a failed attempt to reach out to a big audience and non demosceners, then watch it again and see it as the stupid standard demo it is and was supposed to be.

I would rather call demos using visibly badly converted multicolour pictures stupid and standard. At least some people try to enforce that "standard" on us.

[35] : 17. Mar 2004 19:23   
And I wouldn’t wonder if that "tunnel" routine was ripped out. But nowadays nobody seems to care about such things. P.S.: Nightlord, Oswald. Talk to me! ;-)

@creamd: i just sent you the demo... would you please check your mail and let meknow if you have gotten it intact

[37] : 19. Mar 2004 09:33   
Yeah it works! Thanx man!

[38] : 19. Mar 2004 10:34   
And It’s lovely!

@33: Yes, but it was a nice stupid standard demo this time. Focus on theme is good. Especially themes I like ;). @28: What CreamD said, and I do feel that there is a class of good demos that doesn’t need to be bound to any medium, so using a c64 to represent it is just as good as writing a book or a film - it gets the message across either way. They win on storytelling, presentation and well-done trickery. Remember, in the end, it’s all in the eye of the beholder. I think Magritte said it best a while ago: Ceci n’est pas un d?mo. (Est-ce un d?mo? Moi, j’crois pas :)

@29: Yes, that’s exactly why I made BBOH, damn, you got me there. If our biggest problem is that Spectrum- and Atari sceners might not understand our c64 demos, then maybe we shouldn’t be making c64 demos at all. Now I’d love to stay here and write more nonsense, but I have to attend a business meeting with some Cartoon Network execs, aparently they have seen BBOH and want to do a tv series based on it.

Sarcasm: Scandinavia’s gift to the world.

TDJ. Surely The Netherland’s gift to the world then.

[43] : 19. Mar 2004 22:30   
TDJ: You mean to say that the offer sent to me from isn’t real..?! Do you know something I don’t? Should I cancel my flight to NY?

[44] : 19. Mar 2004 22:31   
Snappy comeback.

[45] : 19. Mar 2004 22:32   
@43: obviously I know nothing, so go ahead and say hi to the cast of Friends from me

[46] : 21. Mar 2004 00:44
