pro: awesome! would have been cool to see who would apply for that job :)

I learned "boozing" when I entered the scene and calling it "socializing" when done together while talking about demos.

sleeping hall
main hall
mystery zone (I love that one from breakpoint)
price-giving ceremony
(major) release

This thread is worth a wiki, isn't it?

a number of major productions have "secret-parts"

A nice "cracktro" at a "copy party". Or why not an "ascii collie". Or "warez" on "elite boards". Cheers! \o_

If it hadn't been mentioned before, "tune". I mean yeah "tune" gets used elsewhere but not nearly as much and definitely not in the same context as with demosceners. Personally "tune" is like my favorite word in the whole wide world.

I've been known to say "runtime-tune" in describing things like soft-synths. Does anyone else use "runtime tune"?

never heared runtime-tune..

Speedcode is a "set word" though. In the c64 scene it stands for dynamic generated exessive unrolled special case routines to do one single effect...


is the most common pattern as far as I know.

@torus: I thought it was:

lda table,x
sta screen

for table effects like plasmas and zoomers, or:

eor buffer
sta screen

for vector filling. And it doesn't have to be dynamically generated. A lot of lamers prefer scripting/macros, which means the whole shebang has to be loaded from disk, which explains the long loading time of some demos.

From the Apple days, this pair of instructions was very common...


...usually placed at the start of some bogus "protection scheme".

I like the term "speedcode" which is specifically a C64 scener word, because I called the same thing "unrolled codes" or "unrolled loops" on the CPC or any other computer.
