Imphobia #8

Imphobia #8 had had a long delay: It was released in October 1994, ten months after the previous issue. The file_id.diz said: "You thought we were dead? THE PREMIUM PC-DISKMAG is
back for a while with a fabulous issue, tons of articles, a new design and the promised GUS Support!!" Apart from the GUS support, not much had changed at first glance: There was still the same structure of the magazine. The graphics were made by PL, and the music was made by NHP of Anarchy, Scorpik of Surprise!Productions, CC Catch of Renaissance and Black Lion.

The amount of articles exceeded 1 Mbyte, written by more than 40 authors. There were 141 voters. The categories were groups, demos, intros, coders, graphic artists, music disks, games and utilities. Instead of a top-10 like in the previous issues, a top-15 was presented. For the first time there was also combined chart in which the points of all regular charts had been added together. This chart was based on an idea by Lethal of Crypton from the staff of the Parrot diskmag.

The Scene Forum featured several articles about mail swapping, articles on demo design, a French scene report, a Polish scene report and, yet again, a Hungarian scene report, articles on diskmags, music disks, Amiga vs. PC, Atari, and other topics. The Miscellaneous sub-section also contained some scene-related articles, e.g. "Making demos for fun?" or "I'm not a Swapper!", as well as texts on general computer related issues such as whether CD-ROM is the future and processor power, plus other articles (e.g. "Tekkno Sucks!"). There were reviews of the demos and 64 kbyte intros presented at Assembly 1994. There was a far bigger Partyline sub-section than the Event sub-section of the previous Imphobia issue, featuring mostly party reports. Again there were Weird Stories. A new section was about Poetry. The Coding Corner was bigger than in Imphobia #7, with articles about memory management, IFF files, 4k intro coding and other things. Finally, there was a new Graphics Corner, with some tutorials and an article about Escher.

The interviews now were no longer group interviews but focused on individual persons - at least most of them. Interview partners were Saracen of E.M.F., Hoplite of Orange, Zuul Desing, Whistler (organizer of the Bizarre party), Felix of Outlaws FX, Stone and Tyrone of Dust, Elwood of Jeskola! Production, Zebig of Speed, Rogue of Logic Design, Brian of Legend Design, and Royal of The European Technology.

It's a pity that on my modern PC, the displays of Imphobia #8 don't work correctly and some parts of the screen are almost unreadable.
