breaking news: 64k category killed, dancers happy

category: parties [glöplog]
gasman: those contributions can still be entered in the real wild democompo (where the exotic platforms belong IMHO)

Regarding the oldskool compos, I'm feeling compelled to type a few words.

1) I wanted a static set of platforms to stop the constant stretching of the "before year x" rule.
2) Britelite suggested (he's my co-pilot this year) that the aforementioned static set should be machines that were popular demo platforms when they were newschool, and I agreed that it was a good direction for the compo.

And that's it, no hidden agenda, no trying to discourage oldskool entries at Asm, just a different set of rules than last year. :-)

rez: I'll jot down your idiotic comment of "just a musician" and my complete lack of understanding of what it takes to make effects look good to you being agitated by the death of your favourite category, because if it wasn't, you just turned into an giant, ignorant dick -- and hopefully that's not the case. :)

As with almost anything, this is not worth the hassle.

And Gloom, that last comment of yours isn't helping either. Of course Rez is spewing frustration left and right, that's nothing new. Perhaps it's better not to defend against accusations you know noone really holds for true and especially not lace them with extra profanity. Because all that has the potential to do is to drag this on a bit longer and I've checked the expiration date: this discussion has long gone sour.

gloom: thank a lot for giving some ideas for fun sentences to write into my next "dead prod category" release.

*shrug* Hey everybody, Rez doesn't mind expiration dates!

@gloom: I wasn't sure when I read your last insults, but I re-read my comment and I wrote "as musician (not a coder)" and i searched everywhere in my post the word "just" or something who can sound like that but didn't find. Really.

I have nothing against musicians, I was one (and I hope I am still one) since 1993, started music when I was 8 years old, played during 12 years in a classic orchestra, was professionnal musician during my military obligation, did some videogame music and I am friend with a big part of the best Amiga musicians, so it's clear that I LOVE musicians.

I just wanted to say that in one sentence you seems to say (again) that I did an "easy-job" by adding "fast-made" effect by just copying what i've done before and changing one or two things here and there. I was just trying to explain quietly and without any offence that it wasn't simple as you think.

But apparently you enjoy a lot to insult or making me looking like a poor lamer. Adding a smiley add the end of your post doesn't make you sounding "fun".

And yes I am whinning and arguing on forum, I'm taking thing too seriously, but since demoscene is my second family and more than a hobby for me, I am always taking things seriously. Sorry.

you know what okay fuck this I HAVE HAD IT.

rez, gloom, you people are both intelligent and notably friendly direct people in person i've known for years, and all that someone seems to sublimate like a fart in the fog as soon as you reach each others proximity. and it wouldnt be half as fuckin irritating to watch two sensible levelheaded people go absolutely bugfuck loco on each other if you wouldnt take the ample time to make sure that you LET ME KNOW how much you have PROVEN that your adversary completely revealed himself as undone as a retarded garden rake, all while you're acting exactly THE FUCKING SAME, and then after I kindly point out that there isn't really an argument here anymore, you both go "BUT HE STARTED IT", an argument i last heard when i had to do my long division homework.

SO CHILL THE BLOODY FUCK OUT, gloom you're a musician, rez you're a coder, SIT THE FUCK DOWN and finally get together and DO A FUCKING 64K TOGETHER so that ASM doesnt have to cancel his 64k compos and finally we get to see some cool shit while YOU'RE BUSY SHUTTING UP DOING SOMETHNG CREATIVE FOR FUCKS SAKE.

That will be funny when ASM will decide that they will cancel "demo" competition and add a "youtube video" competition because there's not enough "demo" releases.

And all the rest of this topic is totally depressing for me, so instead of starting a new scenedrama i will shut the fuck up.

that sum'd it up all nicelly.

also in case many 64k releases show up in the demo compo, will the 64k compo be revived or is it a permanent rule?

Well, let's see what ASM w/o the 64k compo will bring us.

If they'd really re-add that compo, all this drama would've just been a rehearsal for the next time 64k is dead™. So keep calm and run around screaming.

I was really, really wanting this thread to go away.

But maybe now something good will come out of it.

+1 to the Gloom \ Rez coop.

Plus several million for style and plainspeaking smackdown to Gargaj.

And all of that is dead serious, no forum sarcasm there.

Well, this certainly took an unexpected turn. :) Also, for me, this is by far the best thing in this thread:
