category: offtopic [glöplog]

after long considerations i've decided to part from my collection of original scene cd's from the 1990s. these are official and professionally (in some cases commercially) manufactured data cds featuring demo/artscene content. they are in original packaging and feature the original covers/booklets.

- DREAMS 2 - THE DEMOSCENE ARCHIVE (2x CD-ROM, 1998)
- eRAVE 1 - ASSEMBLY '95 EDITION (CD-ROM, 1995)
- eRAVE 2 - ASSEMBLY '96 EDITION (CD-ROM, 1996)
- GROOVY BYTES CHAPTER ONE (1996)
- SCENE '96 (2x CD-ROM, 1997)
- ASSEMBLY CD - THE THIRD PHASE (CD-ROM, 1995)

does your copy of groovy bytes come with or without the syntax terror audio part? (just asking, got the same over here)

no idea, don't have an audio cd player here - will check it somewhere else.

IIRC it were two discs; one for the demos and stuff, and another just with the audio tracks.

Mine's #162/1000, BTW.

What? No limited edition of HOT SCENE STUFF? For shame. ;)

(I think there was just one batch of 500+ pressed, making all the discs 'limited' )

Whoa =). Nice to see some of that work still exists. I put a lot of time into the eRave CD-ROMs and other ASMORG produced discs.

hm id be interested in the data on some of those discs bot not particularry in the discs itself... are the images freely available somewhere?

I seem to remember downloading the dreams disks from scene.org
added on the 2013-02-24 16:01:52 by psonice psonice
wysiwtf, some of the data is available on scene.org - but of course it is much cooler to have the disks! ;)

abyss, cheers for your work back then! do you think it'd be possible to legally put images of the the eRave series on scene.org in order to preserve the heritage?
added on the 2013-02-24 18:47:18 by dipswitch dipswitch
yeah, definitely cooler to have the original disks :) Definitely cool to have these things on scene.org too though, since the disks aren't exactly widely available now.

so, go ahead and buy some! =)

i don't have anything they'd run on any more :( Better it goes to somebody who can use it.
added on the 2013-02-25 12:00:24 by psonice psonice
And btw, if you do have something that can run these older demos, it's cool as hell to stick a CD in and pick a bunch of cool demos from a nice menu instead of randomly downloading stuff and trying to get it to run :) It's like a realtime version of a youtube playlist, with cool extras.

actually a repository with .ISOs of such CDs and other demoscene data swag would be nice for history sake as well as fun for people who don't have them and wanna check them out. Maybe that American dude that likes paid holidays can do a kickstarter for this!

Maali, dare we not speak his name? IC says "jscott jscott jscott" and in a blink of an eye he finds himself in a strange landscape of forgotten data and funny hats.
Anyway, I think this is pretty freaking excellent. I would just hope that whomever acquires these will consider uploading them to a public archive.

cd.textfiles.com may be excellent but these days I've been putting ten times as much material into http://archive.org/details/cdbbsarchive

jscott: excellent link!
I was so thrilled when I found plenty of "ASM: Aktueller Software Markt" issues there the other day:

ok, all CDs are sold except for the dark domain DVD.
added on the 2013-02-26 15:44:30 by dipswitch dipswitch
maybe a certain someone can use it to do some blow off of ;)
added on the 2013-02-26 17:29:35 by superplek superplek
plek, the issue here is that many of these cd's were commercially produced, so i don't think we can just put them up on scene.org or anywhere else without permission.
added on the 2013-02-26 18:17:23 by dipswitch dipswitch
...did you just call maali plek or plek maali?
added on the 2013-02-26 20:11:48 by Shifter Shifter
or maybe he cannot put blow on scene.org!
added on the 2013-02-26 21:35:57 by Maali Maali
eh, no, i was calling el generalissimo plek, which i believe is fairly correct? =)
