Nordlicht 2018 - 20th - 22th July - Bremen, Germany

category: parties [glöplog]
yeah, splendid!
You know i always wanted to visit Nordlicht from the first installment until today and just never made it! And again this year i am completely out of money, but i got people that offered me to pay the trip aswell (gotta payback tho, but doesn´t matter when i will do so!).
So i really want to come once again.
The only thing that would hinder me to compete at Nordlicht would be if Evoke would announce they have a shader showdown qualification aswell, as said, my family would be there to see that live then! ;) Who would not prefer to have it that way?! If i would qualify at Nordlicht i couldn´t qualify at Evoke anymore...well, i guess it all boils down to compete at Nordlicht anyway!

Now that i am almost certain i will compete at Nordlicht, i do, just as fizzer, hope other people will pop up to compete! A 2-people-shader-showdown-instant-finale would somehow suck! ;)

If there´s anyone who could pick me up in Cologne on his car-ride to Nordlicht, please just tell me here, i will contact you asap then! :)
The moment you realize that Nordlicht 2018 is only a little over two weeks away! AAAHHHH!! /o\ If you haven't got your ticket yet, now is the time! Your support helps us to organize an amazing party for you! See you soon!

Remote entry submissions for most of the competitions are now OPEN!! See https://nordlicht.demoparty.info/competitions for details on how to submit your stuff! The submission deadline is on 15th July, that's a few days before the party! If you need more time, get in touch with us so we're aware :)

Hopefully there will be a stream that does not suck. :) Love seeing the gravedigger compo. (and yes, I would love to be at the party place too)

We still have slots left for the Shader Showdown Qualifiers(tm), so if you feel you are up to the challenge, drop us a line!

Also make sure to grab your Tickets, presales are very much appretiated and help us to finance stuff!

Is there anyone driving through .be who wants to share a ride with me? Please contact me on IRC, or pcy -at- national.shitposting.agency (yes, that's a thing).

On the same note, anyone driving from bingen/alzey/mainz to nordlicht? In that case I'd like to hop on. Petrol cost sharing is obviously fine by me.

Alternatively, I could drive with my car, then I'd have 3 seats free. If enough people apply I would drive as well.

Bought ticket, trying to make something for the 512b compo (damn that's a LOT of space :O), not even sure that i can make it to the place. Supporting anyway =)

It still looks as if I'll be up on stage coding shaders alone. That's not a problem for me, but it probably won't be too exciting for the audience!

note to remote entry submitters:

don´t forget to include a partymeister preview screenshot (it´s optional but recommended anyway :)

We're extending the remote entry submission until Wednesday 18th July in the hopes to catch an extra two or three of your entries. Please note that we may not be around to read email on party set up day so this is your final guaranteed chance to be seen in time.

you-never-know request on the side: if anyone who’s coming happens to own a CD³² joypad (or something compatible) it, it would be awesome if you could bring it and lend it to me during the party for testing!

apart from that: stoked!! see you there

^^ Yez, i´ll be with you all at Nordlicht, finally ♥!
(All those try-catch-blocks all those years...just didn´t fire, maybe i forgot to implement the finally! ;) Luckily xTr1m fixed that this year! :) )

special greetingz to fizzer! :D :p

#backToFizzergarden (getting a lesson by trying to be helpful and being the only one facing him! ;) )
#deFizzerication (he´s had his chance, first joined, then retreated, so maybe he´s the one in need of a lesson now! :D )

P.S.: I ♥ fizzer! Will buy fizzerCoins! :)
Post the Stream link!

Happy to have delivered hardy and mutty to Nordlicht. What a party so far! Eager to see the newschool realtime compo. Did a party prod in 24h ;)

Danke für den Stream, der recht aussetzungsfrei lief.

This was by far the best good night sleep that I've had on the sleeping area of the Lichthaus. Lights were off, and the plants provided a good breathable air!

Thanx to all involved for this great Weekend and also thanks to Tin for guiding me through the Tram Jungle. Hope Nordlicht will happem next year again.

Oh boy, organizing for Nordlicht is always stressful but also always so much fun. Thanks to everyone who was there, and I hope you enjoyed it.

There were a few items left over after the party that we couldn't account for. SunSpire will probably add more, but here is what I have here now:

--- Lost and found ---
- 4GiB Kingston MicroSD card, found in the orga area near the compo PC
- Competition Pro joystick, with microswitches but without the extra switches of the iComp model
- A Kwik-Load disk with manual. Somehow it found its way straight into my C64 box during the party. Maybe an anonymous donation? :D
