category: general [glöplog]
sry, far to go and other activities going on at the same time.. I have a party in about the same time at my place here in sweden which I invite people to so I can't just ditch that now. We will however watch if there is a stream from tum of course.

tft: we visited TUM in 2006 and 2007 as far as I remember, however the only way we can go there is by train (a 13-hour bad and expensive trip), and in 2007 the trip back home was so bad and filled with problems, that we kind of didn't want to do that again.

However the party itelf is great - I just don't know how to get there in a nice way. (also, getting old means more family blah blah during that time, which means you will have to plan TUM in good time ;) )

this party will rock like hell!
Yeah, more nordish sceners is the only thing I´ve missed at last years tum!

@Puryx: Maybe you could just travel to Hamburg and join some other sceners travelling from there?

TS: that might be an idea - I think it's too late to arrange this year for my part, though :)

Compos - What's different?

Since we will use a HD-ready beamer (1280x720) this year, make sure that your demos and graphic releases match this resolution. Demos/Intros on oldschool platforms will be prerecorded and scaled to fit the max. possible resolution in 4:3 aspect ratio.

The Fixed Style Music Compo has been replaced by a Theme Remix Compo. The sample pack from the theme tune will be available over the party network.

Tracked Music Compo
We decided to tighten the rules a bit to intensify the oldschool flavor. Therefore newschool tracker formats will not be allowed anymore. For a special visual experience during the compo we will show the pattern view of XMPlay during replay of the entries.

Loop Compo
The rules for the Loop Compo have been changed to allow our compo orgas to create a mix of all entries.

Remote Entries
You can't come to tUM, but still want to compete? Then grab your graphic or music entry and upload it via our remote entry upload form. But be fast: the deadline for remote entries of all categories is 2009-12-24 12:00:00 (GMT+1) regardless of the deadlines in the party timetable.


Due to our main hall layout and the amount of table rows, we can't provide switches on every table. Therefore we encourage you to bring an own switch with you and share it with other sceners - 'cause we are family! We'll make sure that there will be at least one uplink on every row.

This year there won't be an official party wireless LAN. We may try to provide one, but as it didn't work out due to the many surrounding access points last year, we don't expect this to become better this year. So, don't forget to bring some LAN cables to wire you up.

You can also read all about it on our website. We'll be back tomorrow with more infos!

The location-address to feed your navi with is:

Durlacher Festhalle
Kanzlerstraße 13
76227 Karlsruhe-Durlach

Travelling by car

Exit the A5 (Autobahn) at Karlsruhe-Durlach and head to Durlach. Turn right at the first traffic-lights and turn left after passing the post-office. Head straight ahead and turn right into the Kanzlerstraße.

Travelling by train

Take a train to Karlsruhe-Durlach. From the train station, it's roughly one kilometer to walk:
* Coming out of the train station: turn right and walk down the street
* Turn left into the "Bleichstraße".
* After crossing the "Raiherwiesenstraße" take another turn to the left into the "Blotterstraße".
* After a short 80 meters, turn right into the "Christofstraße".
* Keep on walking (crossing two other streets) and take a right turn into the "Kanzlerstraße".
* That's where you need to be. Keep on walking until you arrive at the partyplace.

Travelling by plane

We'd suggest you to travel to the Frankfurt airport which has good train connections heading directly to Karlsruhe.
If you're flying with Ryanair, you'll most likely be kicked out of the plane at Frankfurt-Hahn airport, which has a shuttlebus-service called Hahn-Express that's heading to Heidelberg every couple of hours. Once you are there, take the "S3"-train to Karlsruhe-Durlach station.

If you feel too fragile to sleep on the floor you can stay in one of the nearby hotels. Check our hotel subpage for further information.

Sleeping in hotels is for couch-sceners anyway! ;D
