@waffle: Make MORE SEATS! I will be very disappointed if you do not bring everyone from your fair home country. And I do mean everyone.

This year we're doing as Revision did and using a Telegram channel to send out updates, compo and stream announcements and other important info via push notifications during the party.

Just join the channel to get those updates (and no spam, we promise!): https://telegram.me/solskogen2016

New event! Since we moved from Ås, the soccer compo has been sorely missed; unfortunately, reinstating it hasn't been so easy due to lack of playing arena, but this year, we have a great replacement: The Solskogen street basket compo! Details TBA. Bring your basket shoes and calibrate those long-distance shots. :-)

That guy in the middle looks a bit like Dozer from behind.

More announcements!

Allergic to sun and can't come? Borders closed after Brexit and not too good with the VIC chip? Lost in the woods but still have Wi-Fi? The Solskogen stream is there for you, and this year it's optimized for oldschool: Solskogen brings you the world's first variable-framerate demoscene stream.

By default, the stream will be in gorgeous 720p60 for maximum smoothness (downscaled from the 1080p60 signal sent to the projector), but come oldschool time, we'll switch the entire production chain to 50 Hz for that C64 and Amiga goodness—and the stream will follow suit seamlessly. So bring out those CRT or G-SYNC monitors, and enjoy the compo with no jitter :-)

Of course, if you actually come to the party instead, that's going to be great, too. =)

That would be live.solskogen.no when the party starts, of course.

Solskogen! Solskogen! Solskogen!¹

¹ Solskogen is my summer vacation after weeks of work and bureaucracy. That's the most sane statement I can give at the moment.

Compo-update: I can confirm that we'll get at least one NVIDIA 1080 as a prize this year, and: we accept remote entries!

if someone needs a ride from stockholm to solskogen, we have couple of seats free in our car, ferry arriving to stockholm around 10am friday morning.
or pickup somewhere on the way is maybe possible too.

Stream is up! http://live.solskogen.no. Unfortunately we've been having problems with the ISP at the partyplace, so we've had to reduce the bandwidth and thus also video quality. Bear with us as we work with the ISP to get the full quality and stability the compos deserve.

Live shader compo coming up at 20… ish. :-)

Live shader compo underway.

The low quality stream doesn't seem to work

@spitfire: What browser/device, and what URLs does it give you at the bottom? It seems to work fine for me when I test.

Chrome. My connection is slow and im far away, but I do have more success with the 720 version where i see a few seconds. The 480 just never loads. Using VLC doesnt help either

What does “slow” and “far away” mean, more specifically? :-)
