natalia: some people say the venlo meetings are the first demoparty. but it depends largely on definition of demoparty. is it an event that had a demoscene release being premiered there for distribution? an official compo announced on the invitation? there were other events before venlo meetings where people traded cracked games with intros, and i'm sure a lot of those trades were first released at those events. so if the crack intro is considered a demo, then those events could also be considered first demoparties. :S

psenough: I mean 'the pure demoparty' or ehm...'modern demoparty'? with 'demos', not only cracked games with intros anymore...

This is an interesting subject, I have no firsthand knowledge but I decided to look for old C64 demos on csdb.dk.

Here’s an old one: according to the CSDB data, ”Crazy Demo” by Norwegian Crackware Company was released in 1985. It has scrollers, self-made graphics, and the coder refers to it as a ”demo” in the scroller (he’s still coding on the 64).

It doesn’t fulfill all criteria though, the group had two members but the other member doesn’t seem to have worked on any demos.

There’s a second N.C.C. demo from 1986 called ”Beret demo” but there are no more demos under this group, at least in CSDB.

But I agree with 4mat, I think it’s likely the first demo (on the 64) is a music rip or such, or something created by a Compunet/computer club group.

I'd think it's either going to be a music rip from one of the crack teams ('84-'85) or something around the computer clubs/compunet era from '85-'86. This doesn't take into account stuff from the apple 2/atari though which could be earlier.

Although the criteria would probably exclude many of the Compunet demos, at least from what I've seen.
