The last crazy compo to announce before the party is of course stylishly the one that promises the fiercest battle - the famous 8-bit quiz! As all of our crazy compos, it appears irregularly - but this one always has a great and positive response. Do you know who or what is Denaris? Are you sure that Commander Jameson is not a drink? Then you can fight for the title! Which one? Read on...
Are you all brains? Get regularly bored by the difficulty of the quizes at Forever? Then we've got the right crazy compo for you - Fort Katakis! This game will make you shift into higher mental gear and if you win, you can easily crack New York Times crosswords (if they concern 8-bit gaming, that is). Need more info? Click it! >>
Oukey doukey, now when we know that there will be a Forever, preparations can go on rolling in high gear. Music quizes are always top notch at the party. Almost at the touch of your fingertips is now the hardest and easiest music quiz at Forever ever. Perplexed? Heres a link that will explain everything. read full article >
Oukey doukey, now when we know that there will be a Forever, preparations can go on rolling in high gear. Music quizes are always top notch at the party. Almost at the touch of your fingertips is now the hardest and easiest music quiz at Forever ever. Perplexed? Here's a link that will explain everything.
Do you have your favourite funny scene from an 8-bit game? Or even better ? do you think there?s one which really missed out on a great opportunity for laughing out loud? Are you sure you could improve it? Or remember / can imagine some great fun around our 8-bit pets? Then this crazy compo is right for you. Play it live at Forever 10 in the 8-bit Theater compo!
So you thought we would start introducing the Forever compos with a fat article on the main compos, summing up the rules and deadlines and giving you information on the compo machines? Ha, got you! The first compo to introduce is a crazy writing compo, and if that?s not enough, we nail it (or you) with that you?ll have to write in rhymes! Prepare some ink and click on the link!
We have been organizing Forever parties for 10 years.
Counting from March 2000, there has been a continuous line of unprecedented stability in the history of the 8-bit scene. Every single year, every 3rd weekend in March we brought you an unforgettable encounter of the 3 major 8-bit scenes. Atari, Speccy and C64 scene. And the next year, commemorating the most inspiring author in both the history of the science fiction and computers, Arthur C. Clarke (December 16, 1917 - March 19, 2008), we are bringing you the 11th one: Forever 2010 | The 8-bit Odyssey.
To make sure this will be another great Forever, we are
launching a Forever Party News site, which will keep you up to date with our plans and should inspire you to follow next year's hardcore "science fiction and space exploration" (and 8-bit longevity) theme.
Deadline for e-mail submissions: Friday MAR 18 2011 12:00 (can give you more time, just contact me sooner)

Last week Cadaver made a "mistake" of noting me (CreaMD) over ICQ about the new gadget that he has just received. It was the (already famous) 1541 Ultimate Plus. I?m quite astonished about this new piece of hardware because just month or two ago I?ve discussed 1541 emulation (irq loaders, etc.) with hardware gurus and I?ve been assured that it is almost impossible to hardware emulate 1541 to this extent. I didn?t hesitate and asked Cadaver if he coulnd?t write a review while testing the new toy. He agreed. Yesterday I?ve received an E-mail containing a text of review and few photos taken with a cellphone camera. Read the 1541 Ultimate Plus test by Cadaver here
March 16.-18. 2007 - Forever Reneg8 - 8-bit multiplattform party. Organised by C64 (CreaMD, Wotnau and Jak-T-Rip), Speccy and Atari sceners is taking place at the same place as last year (Somer/Trencin/Slovakia), in the middle of the March for 8th round-jubilee time.
As usual, send your gfx, msx, demo and 1k intro and wild entries to CreaMD. If you don?t receive my reply, try again.
Have a great creative time. And thanx for support.
It's one month to the 7th edition of the best multiplattform 8-bit around globe and therefore it's probably the best time to bring you the party report of the last one (Forever 6 party report). As usual it's written by Wotnau/DMagic few weeks after the party, but (as usual) released late by being ever so late CreaMD/DMagic. So why was the 6th installation of FOREVER, held in middle of the March in Trencin/Slovakia, so special?
Read the F6 report here. | Official Forever party page. | Forever 7 visitors list/registration.
UPDATE: Party place has changed to EARTH/EUROPE/SLOVAKIA/TRENCIN/CLUB SOMER (ZK MERINA). If you remember where Pohoda Music festivals (biggest in Slovakia) were held, that is one of the halls there. The map with directions is here. Map (interactive) is here: http://tinyurl.com/jdzwm More info coming soonish. (CreaMD)
So it's finally here. 5th C64.sk's SID compo (8.october-13.november 2005) results.

AEG's T3 is a game of great scale and depth and probably the game event of the year. C64.sk doesn't want to bring you a review based just on a few levels' experience, so check the progress of our main reviewer Wotnau burning the midnight oil at the game in this T3 diary, parallelly with Vip, adding his experience in the discussion section. The review is now available, enjoy!
It's done! Game completed, diaries are finished, the review is published. Wotnau dedicates his victory over Morgul II to Womana/Studio Style and ThunderBlade/Protovision (recently married).

Level 4 - Great Gianna's Brother

Another 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. In case you have missed the releases, download them from here.
Great parties deserve the corresponding publicity. Floppy 2004 ? ?The Smell Of Data? - is definitely one of them. Maybe it is not the most crowded party of the year, but definitely on of the most valuable for the creative C64 scene. The sceners from Sweden and surrounding countries have again proven which region is currently leading the C64 demo scene. Enjoy the report and a small photogallery at the bottom of the article.

at the same time as Sadism 3, Rockin'
Factor, the first C=64 collection of Factor 6 - the ZX'n'C=64 amphibian
- got released. The review of Sadism 3 said that a detailed look at Rockin'
Factor would follow. Publishing of the first got delayed on the webmaster's
side, but the latter was still worth doing because it's quality that matters
- and there's a reasonable share of it in Rockin' Factor, as you're going to
learn from Professor Ugha Sid's review. Download the collection here.
Those who visited Forever Quattro (held in March 2003) had some souvenirs to take home when leaving the party. The best competitors got their trophies, others could take at least nice memories - and Sadism 3, the music collection of Sad/Padua released right at the party. Professor Ugha Sid brings you a review of this piece of audial art. Download the collection here.

Like most puzzle games, Super Seven doesn't really have a story line; in this case the simple premise is to match two dice of the same denomination as one falls from the top of the screen and the other cycles past at the bottom.

Do you lead a busy life? Probably, and I do as well. Nevertheless, there's one item which has been one and the same in my calendar for four years until now. About the 3rd weekend in March it always says: FOREVER! It stands for the Forever 8-bit party, probably the biggest 8-bit multiplatform party of today, which is regularly hosted by the town of Trencin in Slovakia. Simply put, this is a party report from Forever Quattro (the official name of the 4th Forever) which took place March 14 - 16, 2003.

There were a lot of happenings at PROTOVISION lately. Changes in the memberstatus, news about their productions (e.g. their latest game TEAM PATROL being shipped now) and ofcourse information about the VISION PARTY CONFERENCE, which will take place near Hamburg, Germany in June this year.
The 4th year of Forever is in front of us. The same period of the year, the same country, the same city, the same party place as last year. This weekend you will experience another year of the most *insert your favourite intensifiers here* multiplatform Atari, C64 and ZX Spectrum 8 bit party ever. For more info read the article. For the visitors list check here. Original party site is here: www.forever.sk You can check almost complete results here:Forever 2003 - results!!! Releases: Download!
When it comes to demos the Floppy parties really have a name to uphold. Two years ago it was "Feedback" by Triad beating "A quoi ca sert?" by Wrath Design, and last year "Pretending To See The Light" by Fairlight won the competition. This year it was Booze Design's "Industrial Breakdown" gathering the most votes. Here are the reviews of the top 5. In case you have missed the releases, download them from here.

XZENTRIX is a Computerparty for people who believe in a life beyond
This is not a normal demoparty where a few users try to top the others
by pure processor-power. It is a party for people who love their
computer more than their wife (and kids, and dogs :-) ).
Following you?ll find a list of the main systems we expect at the
XzentriX this year.
Ofcourse you can take other systems with you, too.
But please, leave your PC at home...

Finally, CreaMD is back with another of his neverending attempts to completely blame himself internationally. Except of his well known X-2001 party incident this exclusive party report brings you the most comprehensive (=totally boring) info on the event written by this (wannabe) eccentric dude himself. Good news is that it's at least accompained by one or two interesting photos. Enjoy.

CMD was one of the largest companies ever producing hardware for the C64. They were forced to leave some time ago to secure the future of the company. But what about the people behind this name? For them, the dream of the C64 being your main, real life job was a reality. This is over now and one of them, Doug Cotton, therefore has decided to leave the company, which now only offers PC and Macintosh related services.
getting scared by the activity at the Portal. It's getting harder and harder to write these summaries! Anyway, thanks for
your attention and keep on posting! And now read the summary followed by the complete list of November releases. Would you like to have a forum here at c64.sk or rather be without it? Let us know - join the discussion to this article!

Euro Beats 2. The
story continues, and not only concerning the name! Again there are five tunes
and with a bit of effort they all can find their sibling in the first collection.
Don't worry - it's no recyclation, just the atmosphere of the collection is pretty
much the same - and those who tried the first one (or at least read the
review) know that it's a plus.
Royal Arte - first seen on Mekka-Symposium 2001 and taking the C64 demo competition by storm. Then, released a while later with a "slightly" unreliable loader and not giving a chance to fully admire it's great power. Now we are proud to finally bring you the final FINAL VERSION, presented & released at X-2001. Moreover, we bring you a review by The Dark Judge / Focus.

another nice month. This time 34 Alpha-News full of interesting news about The Scene activity. You all participated on another huge release list full of interesting
demos, games, tools, and other yummy things. What was the most interesting news
of the month? Probably the return of Cadaver (Lasse ??rni) to activity, and
controversial The Dark Court which provoked more reactions than anyone of us
Tempest has discovered a new musician! And as you can read in the revies, it's a valuable discovery. This collection not only brings some decent graphic by JailBird, smooth coding by Ninja/The Dreams/Tempest, but as far as I know, it's the first release using Dreamload v2.1 which is the most valuable IRQ loader available. Grab the collie from here!

Nobody expected that this Polish party would have a weak C64 support. After the
cancellation of this year's North Party one could expect this one to be a
