Are coders becoming obselete in the demoscene?

category: general [glöplog]
demo makers may be limited, but new tools like .wz are far more powerful than you might think. after all, they were used by actual demogroups to make actual demos before they were made public. demomakers have evolved a lot from the days of trsi demomaker on the amiga. i think they are now getting to the point where they help the scene more than they hurt it.

As coders do less and drink more they become more useful in the social practice of the scene.
So drinking is the social practice of the scene? interesting....

If coders were obsolete, who would code all the demomakers and plugins?
lenski: Farbrausch will.
"and we will shamelessly be degraded to consumers". Yes, soiled consumers I tell you.

*obvious wink*

coders are naturally a great part of the demoscene, but demomakers allow non-coders to make demos if they feel the need to do so and no coder seems to be able to help.

i sure think this is positive. more demos equals more fun.

i think its easier to learn code and make a demo than learn how to use demopajja tho.

if you can't code you can only get style points. there are other points to be had.
As soon as I learn how to, I will make a tool that makes the demos the designers think of in their heads. THEN coders will become obsolete.

all good coders will have to join the c64-scene as the demomakers on that platform suck, even though SWA tries to imply the opposite. what's more is that megaswappers will never become obsolete.

Sorry, but I know what they told you at the shoppe: "thou shall make a rotating duck". :)
The replacability of coders becomes more obvious than ever - nowadays most demos are only spread in the form of .avi files. So why do you even code an .exe? It will not take long until people notice this profound truth.
