nice issue :)

On first impressions, this looks excellent. Featuring Bridgeclaw`s usual high quality graphics, a number of great tracks and at a glance a good scene based content! Good work, keep it up and don`t listen to any sheep who down vote and follow the little group of knobs such as the above.

darkus: It seems like they haven't learned anything from Hugi #29. Just look at "Quotes from the demoscene" and you might understand tmb's vote.
Music is good, but since it's a diskmag I'll check some more content before I give my thumb.

hires or not.. it's the same pic again and again.. so-so articles (got bored after 10 minutes skimming thru the texts, must admit that i read fast).. Magic's FR related articles are terribly fanboy. other than that, it's okish.

so.. what tmb said!

All the non-core-member articles are decent (KeyJ, you're a maniac :), Magic still doesn't know how to do a proper interview, Adok still doesn't have a sense of humour (and there's no ä in Ümlaüt), and the mag still fails to credit Slengpung for 90% of its pictorial.

All in all, a disappointment for its size.

Hugi is definately improving again. The graphics and music in this issue rule and also content-wise it's getting more interesting again.

I agree though that the TMB quotes in the quote section were pretty pathetic, please leave your personal vendettas out of the mag.

It still needs more support from the demoscene though because too many articles are still written by Adok & Magic themselves or simply republished website articles.

presentation has improved (a bit), but the articles still by and large blow - at least the ones by magic or adok, which unfortunately make up most of the magazine.

it still seems in desperate need of quality control and editors which actually understand their subject matter.

@Adok : I'm not sure if I should say thanks for reviewing < Plazma Diskmag > or not. Because you almost miswrote every subject in every aspect.

1. Iif you would have checked the Resident's web site you would also have seen that Mad becomes Decipher after the first issue, which is me.

2. They don't speak Turkish in Azerbaijan, well yeah it's damn similar to Turkish but no they don't speak Turkish (Turkish as in the Turkish of The Republic of Turkey)

3. There's no member who's called < Plexi > in Resident Demogroup. Instead we have Flexi. Did you mention him Addokk?

4. < Plazma > is not a production of < Resident > it's a production of < Turkish Demoscene >!

5. Lastly, if you are not that < fluent > in understanding Turkish, please do not write any single word about the content. Turkish, or Hungarian, or Finnish or god damn Uralic languages are not compatible with English as you have said, and it's impossible for one to translate without even very basic knowledge of Turkish.

So, thanks for reviewing Plazma, but next time please do more research on what you're going to write. And sorry our graphics are not high-res like Hugi, and we don't want that fucking blurry colors because of jpeg compression. This doesn't mean we're idiots and we don't know how to convert bitmaps to jpeg but instead this means we do care about our pixel-art graphics and the work of our graphicians. Don't get me wrong, this is just a constructive criticism.

Some of the articles were good, but stuff like copying-and-pasting quotes from Pouet and calling it an article, I'm not sure.

Also, there are other places for poor poetry and haiku.

I liked some of the interviews, though. The in-depth ones, anyway. You know, where the writer actually responds to answers from the interviewee. That sort of thing.

Everybody complain Hugi work every he release a new issue !!!

It is very disappointing to see this, Hugi has great articles, good feedback of the parties, interviews...tech data....why so manny negativities ?

This is why there are no more disks mags!!!

Saddly i see more and more people leaving the scene....no more gratification.....just empty words, shame on you!!!!!!

If you do not like, try make it better!!!!

Hugi, i Really Like Hugi33, Great Work, i just wish that you continue doing this amazing work :)

few articles interrested me in the end
Well what can i say...the truth hurts no ?

i'm 34...and as you can see i do not post in here...for a long time....

But that does not mean ....i don't see the scene development...

I remember the good old days...when Scene groups like Alcatraz - odyssey, phenomena - enigma, Future crew - second reality ... and Zine shined...

When Pc mags come along Hugi/Adok, Ep ,and magic,never was accepted by many, and today...i see the same....

i like HUGI, if you don't...it is your problem...not mine, what i regret...is that there are so many of you...

I just hope Hugi/Adok never stops releasing mags...

For Portuguese people.... please post in English ok ?

That HTML version was a huge [pun intended] mistake. Being able to compare Hugi's articles to basically "any other written stuff" in the same environment reveals one thing:

Almost all articles are too short and in their essence utterly shallow and meaningless.

What's a "demo review" worth if its only content is (exaggerated) "they got some cubes, and then a tunnel. overall i like it"? Eg. Golem, Arise is a demo that deserves way more words on the techniques used (rendering as well as direction), let alone the duality between the creature/god approach and what is essentially the realtime 3D version of a snapshot of an aptly named scientific experiment. All things you could have found out with a little research.

Or "politics in demos". Synopsis of article: "yes, there are sometimes politics in demos. Here, take this pouet URL list, i'm too lazy to think about crap like this now". Great.

Same with your Debris/SuicideBarbie "discussion". Damn. Simply reiterating some of the better arguments made in the respective threads on this very website would have been 100 times more in-depth than your "uh, yeah, look, a screenshot, see, but doesn't matter anyway" 'analysis'.

Of course there's the one or other article that's at least TRYING to give some information to the reader and doesn't look like it was done by a 16 year old living the urge to tell the world all of his totally important realizations about the universe (each five lines long). But those are in a scarce minority.

In the whole mag feels like a constant concatenation of Crest's infamous "they had a hall and stuff, and there were compos, but in the end it's most important which trains i took to get there" party non-reports. Which is not good. At all.

MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3, referred to as MP3, is a NEW popular digital audio encoding format. It uses a lossy compression algorithm that is designed to greatly reduce the amount of data required to represent the audio recording, yet still sound like a faithful reproduction of the original uncompressed audio to most listeners

I wish I could take my thumb back. I recently checked all the articles out instead of two of them when I thumbed this up. This is shit.

Both adok and magic aren't even trying to make themselves better as 'journalists'. Most of the articles are minimal and poorly made like for example the darkbasic "tutorials". No offense for the writer but he really should improve his coding and/or writing skills.

I'm hoping adok and magic would spend more time with the mag. This has potential and ok ideas but you guys destroy everything good in it. It's not a quest for asking as many people as possible to write large quantities of articles, it's about getting the GOOD articles.

...and I second kb.

The statement of kb_ means that the analytical articles in this issue of Hugi are superficial and do not contain much information. Even if this is the case, the statement of kb_ shows that he has been able to gather these missing pieces of information himself. In other words, even if we provided these pieces of information, it would not make a difference to him. So there is no reason why he should care. He only wants to complain.

No way. Hugi is supposed to be a platform for its readers to publish their ideas.

Now I will be flamed by my co-editor for these two postings to pouet.net, because he doesn't like me making public statements. Sorry. But I felt like having to clear some things up.
