Hey guys I just joined. Ive been a big fan of dbf actually, the effects are great, the visuals and arts amazing, but im a musician and music is the best. Roly is amazing. I would like to have a chance to talk to him but no emails or anything is listed. If its possible please tell me.
Your amazing man, really.

Hello Architect, you're very welcome here, you can contact Roly by PM on this board and also we have just created a music forum for you guys who do the SFX, feel free to zip your files and attach them to your posts in the music forum if you want critique on your work.

Coders may then use your stuff in their prods if you like :)

I have 3 A500's, I've bought them from car boot sales. I use one and keep the other two as spares for parts when the one I use breaks. You can pick them up for next to nothing these days. C=

Being a smaller community than some of the others it's nice to be able to keep the atmosphere nice around here.
If it's code help you're after you'll get it. Just post any questions you get and I'm sure you'll get the answers you are after.

A phenomenal hello to all of you!!!  :hi:

I am Adigun Azikiwe Polack, and I am currently into FreeBASIC programming, and I also am the webmaster of the AAP Official Projects Squad (http://dhost.hopto.org/aapproj), where I hold the premier FB demoscene called the FreeBASIC GFX Demo Central where so far, over 120 graphics demos are available for download already!!!  :D

Also, besides my earlier WIP games Frantic Journey (with Rel) and Star Angelic Slugger, I am currently hard at work on an *entirely* new game in FreeBASIC just to not only be an intense blessing to all of you and captivate the heart like NEVER before, but also to warm me up for the REAL thing on the other two as well!!!  Watch for that brand-new project indeed to come before July 2006 on my site, ok?  I promise.  ;)

Anyway, it is truly so awesome to be here, I must say!!!  d=;D=b !

Post by: benny! on June 12, 2006
Just discovered this thread here. I just registered today so I write some
lines about me.

My name is benny!. I was active in the demoscene in the 80's and 90's.
The last group I was in was called bizarre arts. Although I didn't do
any big demo-effects recently the demoscene movement still attracts me.

Nowadays I code mostly for the web and at last for mobile devices. I use
various languages and don't stick to a certain one. I choose the language
which suits best for the certain programming task / environment.

I already read some interesting posts here and saw some cool sources - so
I am really looking forward to chat with you about coding and scene.

Feel free to drop me a line if you want to know anything more - or feel free
to visit my site.

Well, the lil news box said to post here if I was new, so, what the heck....

I'm Rattra, I normaly program in FreeBasic, anything else is normaly web code (XHTML, CSS, php, Javascript, etc).. I know a lil bit of C++ also, but rarely mess with it.... Skills are OpenGL stuff, FBGfxLib effects, logic, mathmatics, parsers, braking things, debuging, and more..

I also do graphics, arts, and photography... (prolly more, just forgetting them atm..)

As far as programs, I do Demos, Games, Editors, and loads of littly simple (just for the hell of it) codes...

I code for myself under x.t.r.GRAPHICS, and with Xteraco under FB_Fusion..

Hello,

I used to muck about with assembly on the C=64 a wee bit and ARexx on the Ami. Upon occasion I tweak, fix or completely break C/C++ apps for Linux.

I am not a programmer.

I write songs primarily on the C=64, Amiga and NES.

I released a few things; but only on my C-Net BBS and at a time when people had pretty much abandoned BBSs for MUDs and the Internet.  They might be out there somewhere.

Hi,
Great forum! I was thinking of setting something like this up until Zawran pointed me in this direction. My demo days started off in Quadriga (http://www.dinneen.eu/quadriga/images/random/7.jpg) back in the Amiga days of 1992. Recently I started again on the Mac scene under the same alias DaD1916. Demos written in anything other than asm or c++ may be frowned upon by the critics at pouet but it's the end result that matters, only the tools are different! O0

I'm a new member, and my dream has always been to make a demo.

I have a bachelors degree in computer science. I'm mainly a webmaster, have been working with Flash for about five years, some PHP, ASP and have a bit of experience with Blitz3D (I made a educational game some years ago)

I'm willing to lear from you guys, and if someone need something i can help you out just ask! ;)

Title: Re: The Welcoming Comittee
Post by: Shockwave on July 18, 2006
Hi H3r3j3, nice introductory post  :hi: to the forum.
The best thing I can suggest is to have a look around the showcase, download some stuff to get some inspiration if you are unsure what you'd like to code first. Choose your language and ask as many questions as you want.
In fact we like questions, no matter how dumb you may think they are or how difficult they are, it's part of what keeps the board going. Lots of people here like helping out budding demo coders.
Hope you stick around.

Hello all.

Im the intro fairy, I wave my magic wand and 6 months later an intro appears. Sometimes.
Errr I like chocolate, beer and women with beer and chocolate.
Any crap jokes about flat head and no teeth should be inserted here.
Errr. I know opengl and I can program but Im not a programmer by profession.
I'm actuall a hedghog by profession.

Post by: Hotshot on September 04, 2006
hey everyone,

I remmy when I got my first computer(when I was about 14) which was ATARI 65XE (I know it was crappy computer at the time),IÂ  play some game such as star rader, up up and away or Leaper. Then I start look at Atari 65XE Manual which show some programming stuff.....so I decide to check it out and end up making my own car sound =)Â  Then I have forgot how to program them due to great ATARI games such as Gunlet, Joe Blade( I nearly finished it but it was hard), track and fields that got me hooked.

The C64 came along and I ask my mom that I want that for XMAS.....SO I decide to sell ATARI 65XE for C64 computer. The C64 Computer TOTALLY BLEW me away with all those Great games such as TURRICAN 1 and 2, Last NINJA 1 and 2, those sensible software games as well. I didnt program very much due to those great game that drove me but if the C64 Games hadnt be great then I would have done lots of programming.

Then Amiga came along......So I decide sell C64 for Amiga 500Plus,  The amiga was so great with all the game such as SWOS(that game got me hooked), Cannon fodders, Desert Strike, R-TYPE 1 and 2, Aiype(cool shoot em up)

there some programming software that came along which BlitzBasic 2 and Amos( I love doing amos).
I have code all sort of things with Amos such as Starfields, Credits rolling up screen, 2D Racing car game(short one), Horse racing game(where you put bet on horse and see if u win some moneys) .


When the Amiga Died.....I turn my attentions to PC and found Blitzbasic for PC. I have code some demo for it and some game(not lots).  I havnt touch computer for one yrs since last two week and I have to say that I am glad to be back computer and try code somethings simple rather be somethings impossible to code on what I like to do. Yes I can be creative person when come to coding.

It would be funny and wired when Person get so PISSED and code somethings REALLY wired progam.

 :cheers:

p.s. I am sorry to WAFFLE too much! lol

Hi Guys  :hi:

I am Ragesnax
37 years young
Hobbies
World of Warcraft(get lost in azeroth today)
Horror SciFi fantasy Tv Films Books
Games allsorts ADnD etc
Computers etc
New tech gadgets
Cooking
Music

First introduction to videogames was the arcades and thinking at the time how cool it would be to have at home

first home sys was binatone?( i think) it had preset games like tennis football
first saw a home computer at my cousins a zx81 graphics were blocky but fun was had bomber springs to mind my uncle had an apple or something and we sneaked goes at some sex text adventure .
Sometime l8r my other uncle my dads brother had a cbm pet and started to get involved with computers he wrote a cool snake game that entertained my brothers an me for hours he l8r worked at a computer shop and wrote businness software on the bbc one christmas the shop gave him a bbc b as a present a whole load of games :D fun times Sadly my uncle passed away not long ago :(

Strange but true i really wanted a bbc electron cause of the geekiness i suppose i might learn something but my brothers out voted me for the c64 not cheap at the time but i am glad they won !

C64
First interest in coding sparked by watching the old C64 compunet demo's
obtained from a friend of a friend called toby (checkout thrust C64 title pic Tob is his signature)
loved how ppl could do stuff like open the borders on the c64 .

Tried
C64 basic
Basic lightning
Machine lightning
some others

Atari st
Bought with redundancy money from Christies(yep the auctioneers) if i had got more would of got an amiga tbh but oh hmm
having visited many shops local to my area i found a place in kingston surrey and became friendly with the shop guy there and in turn was introduced to Manikin  Sammy Joe  and the other one(sorry dude !!) aka The Lost Boys.

Tried
Atari st basic
Stos
asm c

Amiga
Having known for a long time about demo's etc i set out to find some and i wasn't disappointed
and a friend called Lfo and myself used to get together drink smoke play games etc he loved his music and eventually music was it for him
as i remember he wrote a few tunes on octamed or the earlier version mainly cos of the midi stuff i believe
l8r on we founded Phuture 303 Lfo changed his name to Phono we had a swedish coder called Parsec(Rip dude) they released a scene mag called Subculture issue4 is on aminet


Tried
Amiga Basic
Amos
AmosPro
Asm C
arexx
and others

Pc
Well what can i say i can play almost any old system i like now and the things i have seen have blown me away tbh
from mini os that u can install on a network card to arcade hardware demos to emulators that show what the other machines could do
(really must look at optimus's cpc demo's) etc

tried
Blitzbasic
Blitzbasic3d
Purebasic
Sdlbasic
C C++ Asm
Freebasic
many others

Gp2x
For a GamesGeek like me this was earmarked for purchase when the gp32 came out i have had it for a while now but for you tech heads here, it is a nice bit of kit if u don't like the front end it is fully customizable even down to writing yr own os !
it also has a great range of Demos(hi optimus) Games Emus and Utils it also plays mp3s n movies aswell .

Tried
Fenix
C

It's a pity that these days consoles n most hardware is never around long enough to be used to it's full potential  making said hardware do tricks it was never designed to do etc and games have lost the magic of years gone by ! Originality  ,  Â Software companies today are scared of such a word.

I love the work everyone does here it is Magic tbh jus like the old days :D Please Keep It UP.

Many Thanks to Shockwave n Clyde for the old forums where i first met some of you

Ragesnax, you know what, after all the time you were registered at the old place I never had any idea how into your programming that you've been over the years (and sorry to hear that you lost your Uncle who got you into programming and also Parsec, the swedish coder).

Also interesting is that you are also into developing for the Gp2x, just like Optimus.
I don't think Optimus comes around the boards any more, he freaked out a little bit not so long back and I think he's taking a break. Shame really, I think his posts are missed.

What I now think is that by;

A: Using Ezboard.

and

B: Limiting the choice of language to Blitz

on the old board we missed out on a lot of potential members because of the shit registration process and the downtime and also you are proof that there was a lot that went un-noticed too, you much more interest than Blitz :) It's good that a lot of the core members from before are finding this community and supporting it with their postings and programs :)

Greetings. I am CombatKing0 - the prototype for the forthcomming production line CombatKings.
I do spelilng mistakes and errors grammer.

I have been programming for 19 years. Well, not really, I typed a few lines of BASIC on an old Atari 1200 I think it was. Please bear with my 56 bits of memory.

Anyway, I have since worked with PS2 YaBASIC, HTML, JavaScript, ASP, PHP, and I'm learning other web based languages such as PEARL and SQL.
My current project is a Sudoku site with 64 by 64 alphanumeric puzzles. Try them if you dare when they are ready.

If anybody has any web-technology based programming questions, I'll try to help.

Hi, I'm new here. My name is xearokool... I've been coding for a couple years now. I got my start in DarkBasic, then found out about FreeBasic...  I've not posted to any of the forums because I have not had reliable internet access untill now. I just moved out of my parents house, and am living with a roomate who told me about this site, and lets me use his computer.

Anyhow, Its good to find a community with such creativity, I look forward to contributing.

Title: Re: The Welcoming Comittee
Post by: Shockwave on October 03, 2006
I thought it was sort of wierd that I hadn't seen Xteraco around much lately, and when I did my weekly audit of the board and saw that your isp and ip numbers were the same and that your user name was the same, I figured that Xteraco must have forgotten his password and re-regged. But then I thought that I was being stupid because I saw some post about a logo by you which rattra had answered, and then I read on and saw another post about alambik with some comments about warez that shouldn't have been on the board, and now I am a little bit confused as to who is who, considering that Xteraco lives in an apartment block (according to a post he made a short time ago about some drunk woman he nearly ran over) and now you say you live in the same appartment.

So what's what and who's who?  ???
Title: Re: The Welcoming Comittee
Post by: xteraco on October 03, 2006
xteraco and xearokool are 2 diff people, i'm xteraco, the same old xteraco.... me and my girlfriend were having financial problmes, so we moved the bed out of the br, and decided to rent it out (take in a roomate) while we have the mainroom sectioned off for our room

not to a stranger, xearokool has been a local friend for a while, and just turned 18, he's got a job and is helping out

i havent been posting much for a few reasons
1.i got a new job, so i've been working fulltime
2.i started college classes

hope that helps out a bit, sorry if that seemed weird and alienating
Title: Re: The Welcoming Comittee
Post by: Shockwave on October 04, 2006
That's cool. I just check the board for multi-accounts from time to time. In any case, xearocool has asked me to delete his account so all the best.

Just a quick note to any would be trolls that try and register here, it is a very easy going board but fucking childishness that spoils other people's enjoyment of the board will not be tollerated and I will not spend any time at all arguing the toss, those who have joined the board are really welcome here, those who multi-account and send me childish pm's will be deleted. Hopefully this board can continue along the same positive route it started off on without the baggage of people who act about 10 years old and would lower the mood and morale of the board to that of other communities.

Hopefully we have something different here, the two accounts (xteraco and Xeracool) have not been banned, just deleted as they requested, they are welcome to re-register as long as they don't fuck around.

Hi guys,

I am Tracy and I am still learning my way around this place. I am still VERY VERY new to coding and I am trying my best. I am starting with Basic..... because well I need the basics! Interesting how that works huh?! I have little experience but have helped a little around the demo scene. It seems cool and I like what I see so far. I love art and people who are creative (see a connect here?). I am amazed sometimes at what can be done in these demos and intros. I would like to try a little of everything from logos to music to demos to see what I enjoy and what I don't.

All my info is attached here (Yikes, is that safe?) and I am ready to learn. Thanks to Benny, Blitz and Shockwave for there help thus far. You guys are the best!

Thanks, lilw4t3rdr0p

I'm a guy from Sweden, I've been coding some stuff in blitz for a while(1 year approx). like the fun of creating something.
never actually completed a game though.
Most of you seem to be really good at coding these demos, I've had a look at your 20 line challenge and they are great :).

The only language I am fluent with is Yabasic and I still program stuff to run in the emulator. I would like to learn another language but my time is spread so thin, maybe later.

Hi. I am new in this forum and I thought I would tell something about myself. I am only coding as a hobby (profesionally I work as a surveying engineer at a construction company). I used to code on the Amiga back in the days (not so well perhaps). I have a basic knowledge in a few languages like C/C++ and Java. I am currently using Purebasic for my intro coding, mainly because of the small executable size and the convenience of not having to think about memory management like in C and ASM (too time consuming for me right now).

I am currently working on an intro for the Breakpoint 2007 and I am looking for music and GFX for it, so if you are descent at chip music or pixel GFX please contact me...

Got recommended here after my overly gay request for decent programmers on pouet. Well I'll probably make a similar request here but with a bit of code-monkey background thought I'd have a go re-teaching myself and maybe helping out a little. Who knows.

Noticed Shockwave is in Wales/UK too, well I never.
Title: Re: The Welcoming Comittee
Post by: Shockwave on March 05, 2007
Lol, where's the pink Penis? hehe. I have a gay smiley :mince: but no pink penis.

There's lots of homeless coders here, some of them even make cracktros, shock horror!

Welcome  :hi: I'll be in the arcade all day, the others will all want to say hullo too.

Where in wales are you?

I'm in Llanelli.

I think there's a few Welsh people here.
Btw I thought that your request for coders on Pouet was a wind up?  ;D
Title: Re: The Welcoming Comittee
Post by: Emp on March 05, 2007
have a stepsister down Camarthenshire way, never been though. I'm up north here, Colwyn Bay.

Looking back on it, my pouet request does look like a piss-take but it was supposed to be very serious  ;D. Would love for some of your homeless codies to move in to my place..



Anyway, week off work. Think I'll have a wade around see what's what :)

cheers
Title: Re: The Welcoming Comittee
Post by: Shockwave on March 05, 2007
You seemed to survive Pouet soo well done. Probably having a browse around will be the best way. If you see any stuff that you like and give the author some feedback is the best way to make coders happy here and perhaps you'll get someone to work on some prods for you on a freelance basis or maybe some group members, who knows? Best wishes with it anyway.

If you decided that you wanted to have a go at learning to code, it doesn't matter what api and language you choose, there will certainly be someone here who can help you with it and the sceners who come here seem to behave differently to when they are on Pouet, I don't know why that is but it's always been a good atmosphere here.
Title: Re: The Welcoming Comittee
Post by: Emp on March 05, 2007
Aye, pouet seems to bring out the worst in people. I've avoided it for as long as I like to remember, only registered so I could thumb up a b-day intro  :D

I've done bits and bobs in most languages. I just quit my job as a web developer last week so now maybe things won't be as PHP orientated and maybe a little bit more C/ASM. It is like trying to learn to ride a bike again though. For me anyway.

Anyway sorry for the very l8 intro here but been busy doing gfx for shock (amongst others) & playing them damn arcade games  ;)

Well....
I am Jojo / Saga Musix, now member of Gravity (at least i hope so :P). In fact, i already promised Clyde to do some tunes for his demos half a year ago, but i never found any time, but my first demo tune is now ready.
You may find more of my free music at my music website (http://www.saga-musix.ath.cx). I'm also a FreeBASIC / Visual Basic 6 programmer, you can find all my programming stuff at my programming website (http://saga-games.ath.cx)... Beware, it's German :D
I did some English programs, though, like vChip (http://saga-games.ath.cx/?programm=vchip), a Chip Sample generator or Mod Library (http://saga-games.ath.cx/?programm=modlib), a program to maintain your Module Collection :)
cheers,

Hi Jojo  :hi: to the forum, I just spent a while on your site downloading some of your songs, the one that I liked best was Grinimal, I could close my eyes and imagine it as a soundrtack for some Farbrausch demo like Debris easily.

Your songs are good, I hope that Clyde makes you a nice music disk so that people in the scene can hear your songs :)

thank you for the comment. You may want to download BitJam 1.1 (http://pouet.net/prod.php?which=31658). Two of my songs (Grinimal and Digital Loop) can be found on the disc ;)
btw, i can also do my own music disk easily, but i'm not so keen at programming stunning effects :)

Hi,

I'm rc55 (Ruairi), and I am the organiser of the Sundown Demoparty based in the UK, and I've been an active member of the UK Demoscene since 2004. I have been writing tracker music using ST3/FT2/Renoise since 1998, and most of my music is average! I also run the websites ukdemoscene.org (http://ukdemoscene.org) and sundowndemoparty.org (http://sundowndemoparty.org).

I must admit, I've only stumbled upon these forums today. God only knows how I managed to avoid you guys for so long - what a fantastic resource! I hope to get in touch with the admins here and work together on having your forum membership exposed via the Sundown demoparty by supporting your works and showcasing them in a fantastic environment.

I also want to welcome everyone who is interested in the UK Scene to come join us as our web site comes together and we work on building a friendly community. I also personally want to say a big hi! to Shockwave, and I hope we can get talking soon!

Cheers,

Ruairi (rc55)

I just found a post about my technology and dropped by to say hi...

I designed a new object oriented programming language (eC - Ecere C) based on C, as part of my whole cross platform Software Development Kit, and of course that's what I code in :)

So that's what I like to code, along the tons of related projects I have going on (IDE, cross platform GUI, 3D engine, media player, instant messenger, source code management system, and the list goes on :P)

(Check out the discussion in the Useful Links for it :P)

Post by: HiQ on May 21, 2008
Hello there,

I used to code little intros on Amiga way back when... Nothing remarkable, one intro for a bigger BBS got some traffic. When I later switched to PC I decided to just toy with FT2 instead of coding. I did try coding too, but "wrong" endian, page flipping, and soundcard hassles were too annoying after Amiga :P Or if you can call HTML/javascript/PHP coding I did some of that. Anywho, fast forward to this day, I thought I'd give real coding another go. I stumbled on freebasic fortified by tinyptc_ext. And it looks like this stuff could be fun again!  ;D So thank you Rbz for the extension and thank you Shockwave for doing some nice examples (promotion work) with it.

HiQ

Edit: I almost forgot, the welcome message I got was spelled "wecome". I thought I'd mention.  ;)

@HiQ:

Welcome on board. Cool to see another oldschool Amiga coder
coming back to the pc demo scene.

It was very hard to get my foot into PC coding, too - after I
stopped on the AMIGA. But yes - there are some languages
around which make coding being fun again!!!

Post by: Motorherp on June 07, 2008
How do all.  Some of you might know me already from shmup-dev which is the website I run.  Indeed it was Pixel Outlaw (another shmup-dev mod) who suggested I register over here in the first place.  It looks like there a few peeps I know hanging around here already so I shouldn't have much trouble fitting in.

Where to begin?  Well like a lot of people no doubt I was also a proud owner of an Amiga back in day with a couple boxes filled with cracked games so I guess all those wonderful cracktros was my first introduction to the demo scene.  Since then I've grown up a bit and become a proffesional coder myself, and although my speciality is in physics simulation coding I've always maintained an interest in the graphics side of things.  I've spent a fair bit of time teaching myself graphics coding using both OpenGL and DX and one way I did this was to create demo fragments utilising fractals, filters, plasma buffers etc.  I guess a good way to introduce myself then would be to show you one of these demo fragments.  It's not particulalry efficient or small since I was still learning at the time, indeed I had to do a fair bit of digging through my old code archives to find this ;p, but I hope to get back to doing this stuff now I've improved.

Its pretty simple stuff really.  I'd written a tool which converts images to index buffers using configurable colour, opacity, and luminence channels.  I then layered the index buffers on top of each other moving some around and fading others in and out and accumulated the indicies at each pixel location.  This is then used to grab a colour from a wrapping colour table to give the final result.  Enjoy.

Hello everyone,

Some of you may know me from the ps2yabasic scene (I certainly recognise a few names on here).

I've always enjoyed coding in a restrictive system, trying to push the boundaries of what is achievable which is why I thoroughly enjoyed the Gameboy (pre GBA) and yabasic.  Being a new owner of a PSP, I want to mess around with that now.

Anyway, I'm a software engineering student from Scotland, starting to learn graphics programming atm and interested in learning to make demos.  Expect to see my first spinny cube or something soon.  ;)

Hi you all!

I came across this excellent site while looking for some code snippets for PureBasic. I really like the old C64/Amiga intros and demos and I thought, well, why not code a cool rasterbar/sine scroller in Purebasic???  :inspired:

So, see you all later

Hello everybody.After being a member of this forum for the last six weeks i think its time i properly introduced myself.My names Wayne and i'm from Wales and  a work colleauge and personal friend of Shockwaves.I oringinally joined the forum for the arcade but after reading some of the great post on this forum and the good vibe here i started to take an interest in doing a bit of coding myself.As i'm complete novice at this i spoke to Nick about this and he pointed me in the direction of freebasics which he gave me personal tuition on last night to get me started.I look forward to speaking to you guys over the coming weeks.And finally thanks to rbz for the tinyptc_ext which i downloaded.
Cheers Wayne  :D

Title: Re: The Welcoming Comittee
Post by: Clyde on October 23, 2008
Hiya,

I mostly lurk to see if I can pick up any new tricks, make the odd topic now and again, and generally have a good time hanging out with the possee. And like to help where I can, sometime I get it wrong but were only human.

In regards to being a musician, I can play guitar self taught with tablature.

I like to dabble mostly on the computer side of things with a bit of basic language coding, a bit of art ( getting less and less nowadays ), and watching peoples progress and demo productions.

Post by: Allosentient on November 04, 2008
I am from Arizona (United States) and have been into demo music for about a year, and coding as a hobby for almost 10 years (C# is what I usually use).  I have experimented with OpenGL but do not have a lot of time to make anything special.  After discovering tiny intros recently I think I want to take a shot at learning assembler and seeing what happens from there. 

I also have done some hacking challenges, take a look at hacker.org for more of that.
Title: Re: The Welcoming Comittee
Post by: benny! on November 04, 2008
@Allosentient:
Hey and welcome to the forum. Hope you enjoy your stay here.
C# is a smart language IMHO. You can use it with Managed DirectX
quite easily AFAIK (of course also OpenGL is possible). To produce
tiny (1k or 4k) productions you can start using C. Assembler is fine
for some tiny functions in inline assembler but I think you are fine
with just C in the beginning.

Thanks for the hacker.org link - some nice flash games on it - didnt
expect that to be honest.

Title: Re: The Welcoming Comittee
Post by: Allosentient on November 06, 2008
Thanks a lot for the welcome.  I will certainly experiment a bit with C, just thought I would try pure assembler at first as it is a language I haven't used before.  C# is good but it is hard to combine true object-oriented principles with performance applications such as graphics (and by the time I could find a good work around I noticed the amount of work I ended up doing is too much for one person). 

I like the large number of links found here.  I saw a website with a lot of good graphics links in C and assembler, but the links were all broken.  I am trying to find stuff using VGA-pixel graphics for MS-DOS/Windows.  Thank you again.

Hey folks,

You probably don't remember me but I did those horrible demos like Chladni. :)

The past year has been quite rough and I had to go offline for quite a while due to things like moving, looking for work, PC destruction and no affordable ISPs in my area. You know the usual stuff.

I finally have a nice new PC and was able to get back online. Just wanted to say hi and see what is going on in the demo world. Hopefully, I haven't forgotten everything and can do another crappy demo soon. :)

Post by: woody.cool on June 29, 2009
Hi all,

I'm woody.cool .... some of you may know me from other forums (Retro Gamer, RCM, Lemon Amiga, AmiBay etc.)
I'm somewhat of an Amiga fanatic and have made a few minor bits and pieces with AMOS Professional on the Amiga.
I'm quite good with most inclinations of BASIC and have even made some 'utilities' for myself in Visual Basic on PC (Windows)

I thought it was about time I ditched BASIC for something a bit more powerful though, and think C or C++ may be the next best option ...... also I hate the amount of 'runtimes' that are required for VB creations and the amount of libraries required for AMOS/AMOS Pro on the Amiga.

So, I'm a complete noob at C++, any help will be appreciated when required.

That's me
 :D
Title: Re: The Welcoming Comittee
Post by: Shockwave on June 29, 2009
Hi Woody.Cool.

There are lots of places where you can jump in and code, first of all you need to get your development environment set up, that means installing C++ or whatever language that you decide to use.

Once we have that up and running for you then we can get the ball rolling... Getting help here is easy, just post whatever is bugging you and we'll be happy to help you until you get it.

Oh, and a warm welcome here :) It's always good to have new programmers around, your questions will keep the forum fresh and help others in your situation.

Well, this is my first stumbling block ...... deciding which environment to get installed.
I happen to have a copy of Visual C++ 6.0 .... not sure if that's gonna be compatible with Windows Vista or Windows 7.

Hey guys. Dude here from Northern New Mexico, USA (though I'm originally from Louisiana).  :kewl:
Found this site from a link posted by Clyde on the NeoSmart forums (http://www.neosmart.net/forums) (of which I am an active member), and thought its pretty cool. I'm studying programming now, in the form of C++. I'm hoping to get a major application coded by the end of this year, which will incorporate sound, video (actually slide-show type stuff), among other things.
Just saying hi. I might stick around here if I can find help for doing a few things on my site (http://coolname007.webs.com)... ;)
What I'm looking for is a good guide or how-to create a php program that will grab the latest news and sports articles from the primary sources (i.e. CNN/Fox News/ESPN) for both of those things, and paste them on my site pages (with the links to the original articles of course). :||

Post by: Vedem on July 26, 2009
Hello everybody!

I'm Vedem from Russia, the land of drunk bears and eternal winter. I've addicted to demoscene since 1995 (after watching "Shock megademo" on Speccy) and it was the love at first sight. IRL i'm a teacher in local university and (sometimes) freelance web-developer (not really advanced though :)). For the past years i've made some tracked modules on Speccy and PC, just for fun (they weren't released, except two speccy tunes that were shown this summer at two russian demoparties). Not particularly well result for 14 years of addiction :) Anyway, i've just started to learn OpenGL (one of my all-time dreams is to create a demo) and feel slightly confused now (i.e. feel like a complete dumb). I'm using Delphi, but AFAIK that's ok. There's a great and friendly community here, so prepare to lots of unimaginable stupid questions :)

Title: Re: The Welcoming Comittee
Post by: cyb on August 03, 2009
hi all,

I've been looking for a while to find a forum/site like this one where you can just share demo-a-like code and ideas but are not expected to be l33t etc.  ;)

I got the majority of august to do some demoscene related stuff and I really hope I can do the following three 'dreams'  ;D

- rebuild website (easy)
- code a c64 intro (average - it's been like 10 yrs since I did some cracktro's :) )
- code a 4k procedural gfx thingy (hard - just starting out with glsl fragment shading)

The languages I prefer are assembly and C/C++ with libSDL. Also some python-pygame for prototyping stuff. I think python is an excellent language for quickly trying out some stuff, and with pygame it's very cross-platform (one of the thing I always aim for).

My favorite machine(s) are mostly retro (C64, Amiga) or 'weird' hardware like Playstation2/3 & embedded devices.

I've been in the scene since 1989 when doing some cracks on c64, then moved on to DOS where I did mostly demos & game-trainers. When W95 infected computerland, I switched to Linux and never looked back, but I also 'lost' the demoscene along with it. Until I discovered csdb, pouet, ps2dev and the likes which made me take up demo-related programming again for non-windows machines. Now I just focus on Linux & my old love: the C64 :)

Don't really know what else to write on a first post. So just ask away if you'd like to know anything ...

Cheers  :cheers:

Was going to program a few games just for home fun, I saw some of Clyde's stuff, and very interested in seeing how I get on. I do not have internet at home, Mike has kindly let me use her PC to ask questions and have a lark.

thanks,

I'll be lurking in the shadows of this friendly place.
I try to do some c++/directx programming (and some C#/slimdx/directx) when time permits.

Currently building a bit of a demo engine thingy and trying some shader programming.

that's about it, i guess  :D

Hi i'm James
I've been posting now for a few days and just got round to putting up a post here. I'm 19 and I'm a second year student at the universty of hull studying Computer science with games development (MEng). I programed in C# 1st year and am learning C++ and prolog in the cause this year. So far I've made a basic game in c# with openGl and I've also been writing some xna games and I'm working on moving some of my stuff from C# to C++. My interests are Games and graphics programming(I'm not that good at either at the moment but hey we all have to start somewhere). Thanks for all the comments on the posts I've made so far and thanks to Jim for pointing me here hope to be here for some time to come.

Anywho thats me in a nutshell.

p.s. my grammar and spelling is awfull so my posts may not always be the easiest to read.

Hi all, I've been a member for a short while but haven't yet posted anything. The liquid challenge has me excited to see the results you all come up with! I plan to enter as well, be afraid! ;)

I've dabbled a bit in 3d, now I'm mucking around with programming, you can see some of my fumblings on my website ( www.kirl.nl ). I'm mostly familiar with javascript and actionscript. I love working in the browser because I can quickly try something out and share it with the world. No installs, no compiling, no trouble.

Then again no real cpu power either... :|

Anyhoo, hi all!

Hello,

My name is Luis.   I recently started demo-coding since the arrival of US based demo parties such as blockparty / @party.  So far I have been able to recreate basic 90s effects with processing later transitioning into C.  I hope to learn a few new tricks here to create more demos.  Some projects I'm currently working on are: J2ME pixel based effects and an Atari 800XL intro.

Post by: peteloco on March 08, 2011
Greetings to all!

Due to "zero post account" policy I decided to post my first piece here. I registered over a half year ago and hasn't posted until now but don't get me wrong - I am not a spammer/lurker/put_your_worst_insult_here. I just wanted to have a quick look on what's digging nowadays in demo coding, to bring back childhood memories, to feel good vibes again.

I had been a member of few Polish demoscene groups in 80'/90' - local groups actually, I didn't manage to get much publicity... ;) Now I am just a mere observer of what is going on in my long forgotten playground. Though I keep thinking to myself I could start over again.

Anyway, I started coding in 1986 when I got my Zx Spectrum 48K. At first I was just playing with BASIC. Then I saw some demoes made by my friends - I thought I could do better so I dived into Z80 assembly. It was a real fun - pity that none of my work has survived to this day. Then an Amiga 500 popped up with its blitter/copper magic. I coudn't resist myself and dropped Speccy for a new lover. Spent few years doing 68K assembly. Finally came IBM PC era. I tried 8086 assembly, Pascal (anyone doing it in Pascal yet?), C but it just wasn't the same. I somehow lost my joy with programming (8-bit rulez  ;D )...

I had a really long break with coding (not to mention PHP and Javascript - I do websites these days). Looking around internet I found this forum and I am damn glad I did. Maybe, I could start coding again like in good, old days!

P.S.
Sorry about my English - I'm not a native speaker.

Post by: PhotonStorm on March 08, 2011
Hah, consider me another snowball in the avalanche :)

I too am no spam-bot. I code in AS3 (mostly) and release games on http://www.photonstorm.com - most of which have a very retro/demo-scene feel, as that is where I grew up and where my heart still lies. Am working on a collab with another coder to make a Flash based "Amiga" demo.. i.e. we'll fake it all of course, but it should /look/ authentic :)

I also run http://www.atari.st (but have not updated for SO long.. my bad.. life, ya'know?)

Cheers,

Rich

Post by: Raizor on March 08, 2011
 :)Well, I've been lurking for a little while, soaking up all the great info on the site. Probably time to say 'Hello' :)

I started out on the good old A500, doing gfx for a few amiga scene groups such as Defekt, Cosine and Anthrox.  I eventually gave up pixelling and moved into coding when I got a PC.  I've always loved demos and made a couple of shoddy intros for the PS2 a few years back. I've been meaning to throw myself into OpenGL and Direct3D for some time and am looking forward to attempting some sort of 4k intro for the PC in the near future.  I've also been doing some iOS developement on iPhone and iPad lately, so maybe an intro for those devices could be on the cards :)

I think this forum kicks some serious butt! There's so much great info here and it seems to have a great community feel.  I've learnt so much already just reading over the old posts.

Hopefully I'll be able to contribute something myself soon!

Note to Shockwave - I really loved your 3D Starfield code for Blitz it set me in the right direction.  It really reminded me of a similar piece on the Amiga that you may have written.  Others have come and gone but yours was the only one with the rotating camera that reminded me of Star Raiders for the Atari 400/800.  I came from a DOS 1.1 environment way back when beginning programming in GWBasic, dBase - Clipper, and Blitz, GFA Basic, and C for the Amiga.  I still own my original Amiga 1000, Amiga 500, and Amiga 3000 PCs.  BTW, I also dabbled a bit with the Atari 400/800, C64, and TI-994/A.  I've been a little self absorbed with raising a family and paying the bills but continue to stop by from time to time.  Thanks Guys for DBF - Sinus Scrollers Rule.  Greg Huntoon

At least there are 28 accounts that are going to remain after the weekend, only another 340 people need to report in!

Seriously though this was one of the most interesting threads to read for a long time today, we really have some cool people hiding in the shadows, lots of interest in the ST and 8 bit systems too.

For the people wondering what the hell is going on with all these great people introducing themselves, I created a group called Zero posters to try and trap the latent spambots and emailed the whole group wo that the real people amongst them can make themselves known.

Thanks for taking it in such a positive way, I hope you all carry on enjoying DBF for a long time to come :)

Welcome around (to Six and to all people)
Thanks!

It's rare to see USA guys since the demoscene is not well known there (little community as far as I know).
Yeah, I think it's down to us and two or three other groups still in the US as far as the C64 goes.

So nice to seee you here (I like the C64 Musics in demo (I can't really say about the techniques since I don't really the limitations)
A quick summary:
16 colors from a fixed palette, more can be achieved with a frame-swapping technique they call interlacing.  1.2Mhz CPU, graphics modes are all cellular instead of linear.  160x100 pixel display in multicolor graphics modes.  Software modes are possible by tweaking the video chip's registers in different ways.  Generally you can translate any effect to the C64 from a more powerful platform by simplifying it and pre-rendering anything that can be pre-rendered.  More can be done with some of the recent C64 variants like the DTV and DTVII/III.

Welcome aboard Six! it would be nice to have some C64 oldschool coding! ;)

Hi All ...

Well honestly I'm a bit ashamed to post here only for my account not to be deleted ...
I never posted anything but I always found here perfect informations I needed !

But here's a bit of my background : a friend of mine told me one day that I was an old computer geek with real piece of C64 in it .... and he was right ! ;-)
It's on that wonderfull little 8Bits machine that "My Real Life" began ... than I got my Amiga 500 ... and my addiction to computer jumped to another level ( hum .. let's say the "no-return-level" :o ) ...

Now, a big amount of years after ... I'm still coding stuff and things and other stuff :p ...
( especially for Android )

Hi there,
I'm from Czech Republic, recently started to play with some DirectX stuff in C++, don't know what (if anything) will come out of it, never really made anything in this field.
My friend (kind of a demoscene junkie and regular Pouet surfer) said this site is mentioned often and that I should check it out, so I did.
Currently I don't plan to post anything other than this don't-delete-me shout, but some stuff I already found here looked interesting and it would be a pitty to loose access.

Hello and greetings from Finland,

My initial motive to post is the aforementioned fake account plague. :) I actually joined last year when I started to learn/do some OpenGL stuff, while trying to find some more recent info from the net. I usually do mostly CLI/system daemon stuff with C++/C/Python and when looking to OpenGL coding went with those languages in reverse order, in the end settling with C++.  My learning/implementing method was mostly "to climb into a tree ass first", but it was fruitful in a sense that it resulted in a production. :) After that I dropped everything for a while, but recently I've again been starting to think of something new to do.. So, hopefully later on I'll be a bit more active, at least I'll be following interesting threads, when inspiration strikes me.
Title: Re: The Welcoming Comittee
Post by: Shockwave on March 13, 2011
Nice to meet you Jusa :)

Glad that your unorthodox method of tree climbing resulted in a production! Let's hope that there will be more productions :)

Hi all!

I'm actually only posting here right now, to save my account from getting deleted, but I might as well telll you a little bit:

I mainly do Microcontroller coding and electronis, but I also find demo coding interesting, and I have a few friends in the demo scene, mainly C64 guys.
I registered here when I was looking for tips how to get started to code 3d stuff, because I wanted to code something like a balloon simulator... but ow well.. I have lots of other projects also....

Hi All,
I registered ages ago to see what was going on here but have only just got back into coding after many years of my brain wasting away so I thought i'd say something before my account got deleted!
Owned an Atari STe/FM in the 80s/90s and started, as many did, with ST Basic then went onto GFA Basic and did  lots of original stuff with STOS and 68000.  Cracked, trained, ripped, and modified loads of games back then and now that i've recently got my brain back into gear i've found I can still do the same on my PC.
  :updance:
I've started using Purebasic as I really like the syntax and there are some really good user libraries out for it.  I did try Freebasic afterwards but couldn't quite get away with the way it worked.  Maybe i'll try again if someone can persuade me it's easied then PB.
So, i've started on my first oldskool demo written in PB and could really do with some tips on some effects i'm trying to duplicate.

Title: Re: The Welcoming Comittee
Post by: Shockwave on March 13, 2011
Cool, there are a few PB coders around here so feel free to post your questions :)

Hi everyone!
My name is Jocke, I live in sweden. I've always loved the old c64 and amiga demos and I've coded a few myself back in the days! ;)
I've coded some suff with libSDL a few years ago and I want to get my hands dirty again. But this time I'm going for opengl. All I've done with opengl in the past is a cube with my picture attached on each side spinning round but that was also a few years ago so I consider myself a newbe. ;)

Hi everybody! Im glad to see yabasic still alive!
I've join this site to see other people's ideas and codes and share some of my own.

I like coding in yabasic so i'll keep an eye in yabasic's forum and maybe post some codes later.

I would like to thanks jim for the emulator and for the welcome cos' im new n a little bit lost here, and all the people who posted yabasic's codes.

I think is great to  find other people interested on coding yabasic, this is my hobby for years, and now thanks to the emulator can do something more than coding alone in my playstation where nobody can try my games.. you now what i mean.. yabasic ps2 is isolated from the world.. you can code whatever you want but there's no way to make an ".exe" file and share it.. so at least whith the emulator we can share the codes an running on it.. thats great!

Something about me:
I'm from Spain... my english is not very good.. but good enough to understand you (hope)

well thats it, I've joined! see you around here.. remember that i love yabasic so anybody to talk about it, i'll be pleased

see ya!

Yay, I'm real and not a bot...Just wanted to get some APIs and write some small scale diversionary stuff. I used to write stuff a long time ago in 6502(c64), 65816(SNES, 68000-68020(Amiga500,1200). I wrote for a couple groups that never made it big or anything but mostly I just liked writing code. Also know C, C++, Java. Never got into web programming. Closest thing to that was Python.

Are there basic APIs to get past having to deal with the overhead of Windows?

What tools do you guys use?

Title: Re: The Welcoming Comittee
Post by: SERGIO_ManOwaR_ on June 10, 2011
Hi!

Thanks to everybody for the welcome!

Im sure this is a good place to be!
Nice people! :D


The emulator is great! What can I do with it?
Well i dont now yet..
Actually Im working on digitalizing pictures for yabasic and it runs really good!

Another good thing from the emu is the speed, obviously! I've exported my old demos and games maded for playstation and in the most cases need to put a 'pause' in the main loop cos' it runs much faster than the ps2 hahaha:P

All my old codes dosn't work very well in the emu because of this difference on speeds and some other questions so i think i'm gonna start coding again in yabasic this time for the emulator! :D

By the way I've downloaded all demos and games for yabasic you made.. that was a good time enjoing. Thank you all!

The first time I had the contact with the scene was pretty recent, it was in 2006, through Anarchy's 3D Demo II, I think. :P
My main activity on the demoscene now is on planning a brazilian demoparty, since the last one happened more than 10 years ago (OverSeas'99). I've been trying to get demomakers and scene enthusiasts together and things are going just fine.

Hi mate, I think you'll enjoy yourself here..  lots of effects routines and theories to be found.   I enjoyed that course too, and my first objective is to see if I can hook into some kind of way of getting graphics on screen with Vb.net or c#..  I liked the look of c# much more than Vb though to be honest.

There are plenty of object for graphics in .net as far as I know.  The obvious one being direct X :)

Hello Everybody
I have been following these boards for a while but I'm only just now creating my introduction. I have been interested in the demo-scene for about 8 years or so now. I've tried coding in the past but I was young and gave up too easily but now I'm ready to take it on. I have decided to use BlitzMax since it looks like a great starting point for beginners and also for the fact that it's compatible with OSX if I ever decided to play around with that (I'm on a MacBook - running Windows XP via Bootcamp). These boards have a wealth of information and I'm looking forward to contributing to and being a part of this community.

Hi there, I started loving demos since I was about 14 years old. I've had a C64 and later an Amiga 500. I still have both machines somewhere on my roof truss. I started making music with Sidmon on the C64 and went over to the Protracker/Fasttracker on Amiga. Nowadays I'm mostly working with Cubase, no more tracking. I found this website since I'm interested into coding some demos for fun. But I don't know how to start. Now that I found dbf I'm looking forward to learn something. I hope some day I can code my own demo. Some oldschool stars, sinescroll, color bars .. you name it. Well, yeah that's pretty all for now. Hope my english is understandable, I'm from germany :) Oh my age? I'm 39.

Post by: Derold on October 12, 2011
Just hooked up with you and yours today, well yesterday my time.  I'm based in Idaho, USA and used to program in cobol, fortran, apple basic.  However that was in my teens, went directly to machine code for the speed.  After that had money problems so concentrated on work and got way outdated.

Now I'm 40+ and currently hooked up with Code::Blocks, OpenGL and SFML, on a MSwindows system.

I consider myself an intermediate in C++, and a beginner on all the rest. 

I found most of the games I loved died out and was replaced with shadows so decided to recreate the game play myself, heh heh heh  :inspired: :crutches:, though I have the concepts I lack the technicality.

Although I seldom have net access(about 8 hrs a month), I am looking forward to spending allot of it here.
 :cheers:
Title: Re: The Welcoming Committee
Post by: Kirl on October 12, 2011
Hello Derold!   :hi:

I started making games for the same reason you did. I had the concepts all ready as well, but now that I got enough experience to realise them, most turned out to be more like elaborate tech engines, which are lacking story or purpose. I think it's a left/right brain thing, once I got my brain structured to do the logic my creativity circuits got all unwired...!

That's why the demoscene is such a perfect match, it doesn't need to have story or purpose!  ;D

Hello everybody! I'm kind of new to the demoscene although I've been watching some prods for about 2 years. It's a friend of mine that first introduced me to pouet.net. I've been coding for a couple of years now and about a month ago I thought it would be nice to participate to a demoparty but there aren't a lot in the region of Montreal, Canada (where I live). Two days ago I heard there was a little demoparty that was going to happen in november in Montreal so me and my friend decided to participate in the compo. I know a lot to programmation, but I've never done a demo before so I have a month to learn the basics and this is pretty much why I'm here. I hope I'll learn a lot with you guys and have a lot of fun!
For now, peace!  ;)

Hey Everyone,

Happened upon this site from google, I'm interested in learning some more about the demoscene, particularly for PC. I found the Kkrieger 96K game demo very inspiring when I came across it years ago, and I love games, graphics and high performance computing.

I have a degree in physics, and an honours degree in computer science with a few years industry experience in software development, mainly in computer science research and other research fields.

I have been looking for a creative outlet in line with my other interests, and the demoscene is really inspiring so I thought I would take a closer look.

Thanks for having me!

I like flat-shaded polygons, and other retro stylistic shenanigans.  While I have no idea how, I'd like to learn to make music with a tracker.  And make demo effects as programming experiments.  But what I'll actually do is read the internet while watching television.  Ooh-er.

Hello!

Well... I'm Den. I got caught in the demoscene stuff some 20+ years ago, when I joined a group named Phoenix on the Amiga.

I'm primarily a musician, but I also did some gfx at the time, and a little 68k asm.

I've been coding in different languages since (not demo related) and today I'm trying to learn C++.

I thought it would be interesting to do so by studying some (preferably oldskool) demo fx code on the way.

And this is how I landed here :)

hey guys, bout time i found a nice place for demo/intro coding, ive been a mad fan since the c64 days, tried to learn asm, but couldnt.... now many years later, i have a will to learn and i stumbled upon this place. i only recently (this last week) got into checking out what was available and saw that purebasic and darkbasic were used also, i did manage to put together a nice bitmap font sinus scroller, waving logo, starfield and music... but for me darkbasic isnt the best choice (buggy as hell). whilst looking around for tuts + plugins for it, i stumbled upon here... so any push in the right direction is appreciated... programming language, tuts, etc.

not sure whats up with my connection (im from australia), but i cant access this site directly. (im using a proxy atm). hope this connection problem is sorted out real quick, whatever is stopping me, so i can get into it and learn to code some nice demo's.

i tried to post in the other thread with no success, nothing on this site will load for me, ive spent the last 2 hours trying to get this web site to work, i managed to get here via a proxy (plain text), so while its loaded, i'll try a post so my account doesnt get purged and i get banned.

not sure whats up with my connection or the website, but the host www for this site i also couldnt access. xilo. :/

i hope its fixed asap, so i can get to learning and be part of the demo community. very frustrating not being able to access it.

pce.

Hi ttemper,

Really sorry to hear that you are having problems accessing us.  It sounds like your ISP has flagged the server that we are on as a spam site - I've heard of this happening before with sites that are on Shared Hosting, one site on the server could be an abuser and because all the sites share the same IP, the IP block stops the site..

IP numbers do change from time to time so hopefully the problem will resolve it's self as Benny said, for now though I'd suggest that you contact your ISP and ask them why we are being blocked.

Thanks for taking the time to make such a nice first post.

like i said, I've been involved with the demo scene since c64 (the force/ikon visual/sabotage and a few others), i wasn't in the groups as such, but knew/chatted to guys in them all the time. even caught up on line with a couple from The Force not that long ago which was a surprise that they are still around coding for c64 and now PC.

i did have an attempt at learning ASM on c64, but found it confusing (i was only young), so apart from a graphic change, raster colour changes, scroll text change and a music/chip tune change, i did nothing more.

now I've got the urge to learn to make a demo or 3 or 10... whatever it takes i guess, like the oldskool fairlight demos, waving/sinus logo, funky scrollers, colour faded raster bars, etc idk... something like contex or blackmail or success demos back in the day, those things rocked (still have them on 5" somewhere too).

I've checked out c++ (i script TLC/bash and some c and Perl on Linux) so that's a good start i guess, I'm a quick learner, i put together a complete demo with bitmap font sinus scroller, figure 8 moving logo, 2d starfield and static and moving rasterbars along with a nice mod/xm tune (although the xm/mod plug-in doesn't work properly, doesn't compile the audio in the exe and crashes on ESC). but for 2 days of learning DarkBasic, i think i did well. anyway... to my point.. i think that c++ would be a lil overwhelming for me, so FreeBasic i think is my best bet to learn.

I've compiled my intro/demo in darkbasic, but the thing compressed is 1.5mb... wtf? and i cant seem to pack it any smaller. but I'd like to learn the same things i just learnt in darkbasic in freebasic (as noted above). any help is appreciated as i don't know where to start atm.

thx again.

@ttemper:

It's cool to see another one here who is interested and addicted to oldschool fx. I am not a freebasic coder but there are a lot of talented freebasic coders in this forum who will be glad to help you out. I would suggest to browse a bit through the numerous thread/sources in the Freebasic board (http://www.dbfinteractive.com/forum/index.php?board=2.0). Maybe also have a look at the TinyPTC Ext (http://www.dbfinteractive.com/forum/index.php?topic=1382.0) thread.

Good luck and don't hesitate to post your questions in the coding forums.

Hello there,
name's CoZe, old time amiga/c64 user/enthusiast, I mainly code in Java/Ruby, use Linux (custom Crunchbang on Lubuntu). I've undertaken a mission to write a Rogue clone. I joined to get the fixed AHX player, cause I'm planning to use my AHX tunes for my game. I've started with building the map editor in Ruby/SDL. Wish me luck !

@kirl, thanks :)

@ronnie, if you're wanting to learn to code demos I think (going by what I've been told myself by ShockWave).. FreeBasic would be the best option to begin with (thats what I'm learning at the moment).

Check out TinyPTC_Ext by rbz (http://www.rbraz.com/source.html) for a starting point, along with rbraz' great tools bmp2raw and bin2bas if you want to include graphics.

Hi there - Nice forum!

I started out as a BASIC program on the VIC-20 (+ 16kb expansion[!]) in '82/'83, then got converted to 8502 asm and booted up on the c128 via its built-in ML monitor. I soon after became a mc68000 program on the Amiga 1000. It was on the A1000 I had my first illness - a bootblock virus (write protect those floppies, please). I felt invincible on the A1200 w/mc68030 + 8 mb and life was good. Alas, one day it was all over. As it hurts me too much to tell you all the long and sad story, I will only say one thing here. i80x86.

Today I feel a little bit better, even though this dual core gives me a split personality.

I too felt that Windows made coding less accessable than the classic Spectrums, Amigas and Commodores, but thankfully there are now more ways of coding than ever.

Emulators of the old systems are a great way of re-living the golden age of coding.

I wish I had a dual core. :o

 :hi: kris

thanks for your introduction. I did share your feelings back then when the Amiga got overrun by the PeeCees. I sticked quite a long time to my beloved Amiga and refused any PC - even if I was jealous to see more and more interesting games being released for PC.

At the end of the Amiga era I even thought about stopping my computer activities at all - but after some months I could not resist and bought also a PC ...

Well, today my platform isn't about hardware anymore ... I target primarily the browser platform to code for.

Hope you enjoy your stay here!
Best,
benny!

Hello everyone,

I just joined to have a look around, esp. for the different challenges. I have been mostly active on the Amiga in the late nineties. A bit more recently I was involved in an Amiga demo for Breakpoint 2010, but thats also already two years ago. Most projects are listed on Amiga Demoscene Archive (http://ada.untergrund.net/?p=scener&i=569) with lots of screenshots, and here is the most recent demo Prototype 1 on Pouet (http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=54617). Any Amiga people here?

well, haven't done as much arduino stuff as i hoped.. mainly bought it to experiment with some analogue sensors (flex, ir, temp, touch..), convert these to midi and pass these into daw/sequencers, for controlling plugins/softsynths, etc.. and some tiny visualization stuff for the same sensors.. as said, not too much (yet), but always looking for ideas for new projects..

Post by: Canopy on March 21, 2012
Hi!

New here, but i've come across this place several times over the years.

I was an Amiga user, demo admirer and cut my first programming teeth in AMOS, trying to replicate demoscene effects, stars/mandels and the like. Through college I ended up on PCs and learned pascal then C/C++, did more of the same on those, made silly little games and the like.. and ultimately ended up doing less exciting c/c++ as a full-time job since '96. I've dipped in n out over the years, but never knew which API to use (if any). I did some Direct X, and very little GL. But now, I can see the GL really is the way.

I've always had, and got coding ideas running around my head, and i'm finally in a position to create an environment where i can do some 'recreational' programming again.

To begin with most of my ideas are around taking the old standards and super charging them in 3D, and HD. Where a keypress or timer would 'jump' it up a level in complexity. To begin with stuff everyone knows, over-engineered and made scalable.

I expect unless I do a compilation most of my stuff will be single hitters, but based in part around some common code (call it an engine if you like) that will evolve to suit my needs.

If i've done or am working on an effect, or think I can do it in the timeframe I'll enter the comps.

I'm going to use VC2008 as I use that all day and know where i'm at and can set up a nice multi-monitor/machine debugging environment, but I hope to #ifdef my code so that it'll run on an Raspberry Pi too.

Hey there!

My name is Joe and I recently found back to the world of coding.
My first programming attempts were with BASIC in mid 90s. After that I learned some c++ but mostly 'focused' on web design and flash.
But it sounds more than I actually did. I was still young back then so I wasn't really coding. Just learning basic stuff and playing around..
In early 2000 I sadly stopped. Partying with friends was just more fun ^^
After high school I didn't know what to do first. I liked math so why not studying CS, I thought.
I just finished my first term and it makes more fun than I thought but most importantly I found my passion for computer again.

Back in early 90s I saw a demo for the first time. And I was stunned.
I was used to play side-scroll games and maybe watch some pretty pre-rendered cutscenes. But that was something different.
That's how I actually got even more interested in math but never really combined my passion for math and pretty animations unfortunately ^^
We also had no internet, so getting information about that was even harder.

That's my story ^^

Right now I try to learn more about algorithms and math and how to combine them with graphics programming.
At the university we learned Java, so I want to use LWJGL first to make some experience using OpenGL.
After learning how everything works together (especially how I can let things work together) I can write stuff in c++ if I want to.. (maybe too optimistic :P )
I bought some books by Michael Abrash to learn more about code optimization.
I haven't read them yet but I know he is/was a programming guru and worked with Carmack on the doom and quake engine.
So learning some asm and C while reading it won't hurt :)

Also, I was kinda surprised to find this board.
In the last few months I often searched for information about demo programmers / graphics programming but never came here.
pouet.net was the first site I found but anything else looked like the demo scene died ~2000.
Fortunately, that was not the case and I found more and more on various sites and video demos on youtube.

mm.. wrote more than I thought..
Well, here I am and I hope we can learn a lot of our failures and ideas :)

Hi Guys,
Just joined DBF. I used to own a 512STand 1024ST many years ago. I have returned to the Atari ST scene to relearn 68000 programming, mainly to learn how to code game trainers and to play some of those awesome ST games. I am pleasantly surprised at how vibrant the Atari ST scene is. Keep up the great work. Now I just have to learn how to effectively use the STeem Debugger! Does anyone know where to get a guide?

Hi,
My name is Peter Dell aka. JAC! and I love demo coding on my Atari 8-bit machine. I've been coding 6502 since 28 years now. And I love demos. Hey, wait. 28 years - man, I'm growing old! Anyway, I have also created an Eclipse plugin callled WUDSN IDE (www.wudsn.com (http://www.wudsn.com)) which supports you in creating 6502 stuff for various platforms (Atari, C64, VCS, ...). Recently I created another video tutorial (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=36MFqY55yR0) for it and by tracking the view referrals I found this nice site. If you have and questions regarding the IDE, Atari 8-bit computers or any 6502 related stuff, I'll be happy to support.

Cheers, Peter/JAC! - now packing my stuff to drive to Revision.

I AM HUMAN, DON'T DELETE MY ACCOUNT@#$#^&%^&*



Alright. With that out of the way. Hiya!

Old time member here, kind of. I was here a few years back, in an earlier incarnation of the DBF forums. IIRC, I met Shockwave on some blitzbasic forum of some kind at the time. Back then, he was a tall entirely hairless woman-lizard hybrid that spoke strictly in latin, dunno what became of that? Oh well. I used to go by 'Random' back then I guess and this was my stuff (all links dead now.. boo) http://www.pouet.net/groups.php?which=3082

As you can see.. I refuse to acknowledge any technological progress after 1993 :D

So about me. Old time semi-scener, been trying to explain to my friends that demos have a purpose since the good old Amiga days. News of a local (that would be: Montreal) demoparty in November this year kinda put me back in the demomaking mood... I'm primarily a musician, but I do dabble in code, and I can do some pixelpushing when a gun is held to my head. At the moment I'm (still) using Blitz but I'm looking to graduate to an actual language with large hairy testicles like C++ but damn it looks like a huge jump.

That's about it!

Call me paranoid but even though it was years ago, I'm still a little wary of giving out info about it, just in case! It always felt like a pretty small, close-knit scene too (although not so close-knit that there wasn't a bit of rivalry, friendly and otherwise ;)) -- suffice to say there were only really a handful of us training games, and very few groups bothered to put cracktros on their game releases. That said, we had a few Amiga sceners in our group, including our main coder -- that brought an oldskool feel to our releases, which were definitely more in the C64/Amiga vein than anything else!

I don't think it's paranoid at all, just sensible.
If you were interested in making these small intros and had contacts then keeping your true identity secret is a must, a friend one warned me that if my intro got used on a game that cost millions of dollars to develop, and the software company got wind of who did it, then that company would certainly have the financial means and motive to pursue me and try to reveal my contacts.

A lot of quite high profile guys got busted a few years back which brought down most of the main PC groups.

These days it's safer to just write these intros for fun and share them with your friends :)  After all, we're all grown up now and many of us are working in the software industry so we're not kids with nothing to lose anymore.

I'm a C++ games programmer with some experience in DirectX10,  a  huge fan of the demoscene for most of my life, inspired when I used my Amiga when I was a small lad, playing cracked games, watching the intros.

Recently I've been making the adaptation to demo coding from generic 3D programmer: learning the techniques, optimizations and practises employed by groups.
I've been studying IQ's frameworks, Conspiracy groups aDDict2 engine and Farbrauch's altona/werkkzeug4 - which are currently over my head in terms of detail.

I can code a game/most 3D techniques...Given enough time, just making this jump to employing these demo styles and having a deeper knowledge of optimising, mathematics and programming practises is proving to be quite challenging. IQ has proved to be a great help in understanding these methods, but there's little else except my own exploration to help myself.

Hence me joining this board, I hope to talk to others who are in the biz, bang some heads and learn. I've lurked for a while here and it seems like a great community.

If there are any essential details or information that any beginner demo coder must see/learn, please throw it my way.

I thought I'd contribute initially a bit more than with a standard welcome, so I've made a topic over in general.

Thanks

Hello everyone!

I stumbled upon dbf by searching for information on coding crack intros. I'm in my third year of college and studying C# for now, I also work part-time as a programmer at an IT company, and lately I've grown bored of the applications I've been working on. They all look stale, like every other Windows software product.

I want to learn a new programming language in my spare time and find out more about the methods of creating cracktros/demos, I've been looking at them for years and I've always wondered how they were made.

Cheers!

Yeah, sad but true - guess most of us are caught in the daily job routine. This forum organizes cool competitions (http://www.dbfinteractive.com/forum/index.php?topic=5140.0) though which might be a cool chance to pick up some demoscene codes again ;-)

hey I'm main;y here to learn as much as I can. I have trouble learning new things but have a huge desire to learn as much as I can about demo coding.

I use the C programming language and use SDL to display my graphics. I want to stick with 2D stuff until I feel I have mastered it. then I will move onto OpenGL
Title: Re: The Welcoming Committee
Post by: benny! on December 04, 2012
Hello flightcrank,

welcome on board ... starting with 2D and then moving slowly to 3d sounds like a good plan IMHO ... Also using C with SDL sounds like a proper setup to start with.

Feel free to ask questions. There are a lot of helpful ppl here around.

Best,

Hello all!

I joined this site mainly to learn more, and it certainly seems a good place to start
I used to be quite into html/php/sql, but that was some time ago
now i am more in to c++, i have loads of books to help, and visual studio, i'm using win7 x64
i thought using visual studio combined with sdl would be a good start, but i'm open to try pretty much anything

I love all the old school stuff, i am now recently 40 years old, and was fortunate to experience the fantastic 8bit era
and watch it grow, loved every minute

I do have many consoles/computers still working, right from c64, rubber key spectrums, vectrex, all sorts, the loft is full of them
i do have a habit of picking up machines and repairing them, so i'm a bit of a hoarder  ;D

I do hope to learn lots of stuff from this site, i really love the old intros/cracktros/demos from the c64/amiga days

so maybe one day i will eventually create one of my own, thats my goal anyway

Thank for reading my long winded post

Hi everybody.  I've been interested in demoscene for ~25 years,  and I released a few wholly unremarkable efforts for the Acorn Archimedes back in the day.  In the last 6 years I've managed to visit at least one demo party each year.

A few years ago I purchased an Acorn RiscPC, the platform I could never afford in my youth. I began dabbling with gfx effects in ARM assembly embedded in BASIC.  More recently I've been learning and using C, with a sprinkling of inline ARM.

I'll no doubt be asking for pointers on old-school algorithms.  There's still some effects that stymie me.

Cheers folks.  Perhaps I'll see you at Outline this year.

Hi Stavs,

welcome on board. Almost forgot about the Acorn Archimedes. Back in my youth when I owned an Amiga2000 I was quite interested in the Archimedes, too. But since I already owned an Amiga2000 I had no money left to buy on Archimedes, too.

But I remember that this computer was highly interesting, amongst other things for the game Zarch
(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/c/cd/Zarch_screenshot_2.png)

Enjoy your stay here
Title: Re: The Welcoming Committee
Post by: stavs on January 06, 2013
Hehe.  Yes, Zarch was a great tech demo,  but I didn't find it very rewarding to play.

There were several much more entertaining, and technically superior, games for the Arch such as Star Fighter 3000 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ueae6bfPYaM) and Aldebaran (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_eQ1uQUJKdU).

Good for Ruairi, I thought about emigrating there myself about 10 years ago... No chance now though.  Gutted that I missed Sundown this year again - I've been twice in the past and enjoyed it on both occasions but the last 2 times I've planned to go my eyes have been playing up and I've been unable to drive :(

Anyway, maybe the other one (sunrise) will be on this year instead.

I have an online portfolio, although it's not the most organized one. It contains really old work and some new, most of my good work is on DeviantART. I've progressed from manipulations to UI design, I'm also learning vector art which is really handy when creating game sprites/characters...etc

Hi Exilepilot, sounds like a very useful mix of skills to me! Welcome aboard.
Indeed, I use Lua in a game called MTA. It's an online version of GTA:SA, it uses C++ and has Lua virtual machine embedded into it, for server-side/client-side scripting which has grown over the years and gives you the choice to create pretty much anything (Within reason, obviously). I learned C from a 'C for dummies' book, which I finished within 3 weeks and found it very interesting. I progressed onto C++ which was a big move, using a language with object oriented capabilities was hard at first but I am most comfortable with it, but still got allot to learn.

I'm interested in programming syntax's, paradigms, how they're typed...etc.
I also have the slightest knowledge of Ruby, D, PHP, Java.

Hello!
I hail from Oregon, USA.  I used to program for an internet bookstore when I was in college 10 years ago.  Mainly just in C and I considered it hack code just to make it work.  I watched the movie Indie Game and it inspired me to potentially re-learn to program again.  C++ or C#, but not sure quite yet.  The XNA/XBOX stuff looks interesting.
Title: Re: The Welcoming Committee

welcome!

i'm a full time c/c++ dev in the windows commercial world, have been since the mid 90s.

i watched the indie game movie over xmas, it might have something to do with my sorting my act out a bit again too!

how much of an outlay is there for xbox dev?

i'm going the 'opengl es' route as its used on all mobile platforms cross android and apple (iphone/ipad) and is a subset of full gl on windows, and will also run on the newly announced "steam box". i'm using (free) mali sdk and emulator on windows to develop, so i've not built for any actual native hardware yet (not really intending to in the short term)

i did some native direct draw stuff in the past, but the microsoft stuff always seems to change a lot, with gl at least i'm confident it won't as i can still use (and buy for reference if i'm careful) books that are 10+ years old!

Hi,
I'm a coder from England. I mainly work on websites and video streaming, but as I hobby I've always liked to tinker around with game coding. I mainly registered to download a VS extension that Google found on this board, but in fact I've been a long-time fan of the demo scene since the early 90's when I started encountering my first ones on the covertapes of ZX Spectrum magazines. And I've messed around with a whole load of effects programming over the years (projects too numerous to mention, unfortunately I'm bad at actually finishing things off so nothing I can link to right now, but I do have this half-finished game that I really need to complete at some point, unfortunately it was in XNA which doesn't seem to exist anymore at least not for VS2012!) So this seems like a nice forum and hopefully I'll stick around!

Hi All,

Quick post to introduce myself. I'm a Gen X that grew up with classic Commodore machines (C64 and Amiga).  I was involved in the art scene (ANSI and pixel) and ran a popular BBS for locals in my area. I program in Java now. In days gone buy it was C and x86 Assembler. I recently setup WinUAE to relive the adventure. I've always been interested in understanding what makes demo's tick. Naturally seeing it again has tweaked my interest and I've decided to get into it a bit deeper.

Cheers,
Matt

Hello!

I almost said, i am coder (in fact i earn my living by doing that), but actually i am a general purpose bit-mangler guy. I do everything a little-bit, but nothing in depth. I had an on-off passivist scene presence, but after some recent personal events, and re-prioritizing, i decided that i will come back. So i started a 4k intro code, and the research for that was that got me here.
For my "language" skills... eh :) I did (ab)use : BASIC, C,C++, Java, Pascal, Perl, PHP.
PHP gets me money to feed my addictions of 15C+,caffeine,nicotine,1200kcal,230V,200kbit+
C and C++ are the new additions to the list.
I use linux for more than 8 years now.
My target platform is my N450 netbook, so everything i make should work on that (OpenGL 1.5).   

For my personal stuff:
I walk the dark path in more ways, than it is polite to acknowledge.
For the people who know mbti, i am an ENTJ.   

So that is me roughly. I hope my being here will be of mutual benefits.

Hi and Welcome ... cool topic. Any 1k intros released yet?

Not 1kb but several small stuff there http://olivier.poudade.free.fr (see pacman2k.asm, 5kpasm32.asm , tiny4gb.asm, tinyporv.asm or 2ksbmod.asm from year 2000). I'm ex-kozmik/NE or ex-baudsurfer/RSI of 1985, and I did release this 4kb http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=1878. I've moved on and I still code but seldom release. I am exploring 256b a bit before moving on to PE header mangling. I'm currently coding a GM tracker+vocoder interface for 256b intros in VB6. My asm stub is interrupt-driven in 72 bytes. I might release it after I produce with it (1 or 2 prods first ?).

I like the friendly atmosphere here. Thanks for the warm welcome !

Hey folks! I'm a hobbyist/student, my background as far as programming goes is pretty much solid in Visual Basic, with a bit of knowledge in a variety of other languages. I also like to do pixel art and compose electro/lofi/chiptune music. In the recent months I've become enthralled by the world of the demoscene (no surprise really given my interests). I hope to start making some demos of some kind and currently have made all of: A text scroller and a rotating cube. Ideally I want everything I do to be cross-platform so I've been doing most of my stuff in Realbasic. I'd love any advice of to be put in the right direction if there's anyone out here who specialises in demo making a la cross-platform or in Realbasic. Cheers!

Welcome Pickles42 - thanks for your introduction.

Well, speaking of desktop OS cross platform in general (Windows, Linux, Mac) - personally I like the SDL Lib (http://www.libsdl.org/) which offers a lot already (not limited to demoscene productions).

Since you use basic - you might also want to check out Freebasic (http://www.freebasic.net/) (a lot of users here are using it) or PureBasic (http://purebasic.com/) which supports Amiga, Linux, Windows and Mac.

Have fun and do not hesitate to ask questions here. That's what the forum is for ;-)

Greets, my name is Keith.  I'm a hobbyist game developer.

I've been programming since about 92 or so...  Started in Pascal, moved on to C, C++, C#, doing a few things in lua at the moment, made a few games in flash using the flashpunk library.

Even though I've been programming a long time I'm not very good.  Always had a PC (originally running MS-DOS and now windows).  I used to enjoy running demos that ran in DOS.  Always thought that stuff was great.  Saw some newer demos and they just don't have that style and panache that the old-school stuff has. 

Have always wanted to code some really cool effects (mostly the old ones, like plasmas, fires, copper, etc)  So finally I decided I would try to start.

I don't really have a place to start though.  So I joined the forums in hopes to find some help in getting started.  Right now I'm making games in love2d using lua, and I was trying to find out whether or not I could use it to make some cool pixel-stuff.  Love and lua aren't really made for accessing things at the pixel/buffer level (although I can access image data with it), so I'm considering other options.  SDL maybe or something.

In any case I hope to be a bit more active in the future.

Thanks,
Uhfgood

Post by: PAEz on February 12, 2013
Ello my name is PAEz....well its Pete, but I like to go by PAEz.
I've joined this forum just so I can download attachments ;), but you make us write an introduction so here it is.
Ive been coding on and off for years and Im still crap.  With one big off period for about 12 years, put it down to...um...a misspent youth
I have a SHOCKING memory and make a thousand mistakes a day, but I love code and nothing is more rewarding than beating myself (how many of you just had a rude thought?).
I LOVE demos.  Demos are what made me want to learn how to code, when I first saw one I thought "now theres an art I might be able to learn"....ofcourse I couldnt ;), but I did learn to code thanks to my first two amazing teachers who persevered through my problems because of my passion.  They were both demo scene guys and altho I cant handle the maths or anything I can code thanks to them....but most of the time Im still a ripper.  But atleast one that never takes credit for others work, Im just having fun.
My first love is JS (especially Chrome and Chrome extensions), but Im looking at Basic (FreeBasic) at the moment as I want somthing to code in for windows stuff and I cant be bothered learning pascal again (shocking memory, forgot it again) so I thought Basic might be fun....someone needs to be sued over the naming of this language, basic it is not....JS is the most basic language.
Anywayz, that should do it.

PS Great site youve got here.
Title: Re: The Welcoming Committee
Post by: Kirl on February 12, 2013
Hello PAEz, I think JS is a great language for demos, we had a couple of js coding competitions (http://www.dbfinteractive.com/forum/index.php?topic=5511.0) here too.

Welcome to the forums!  :hi:
Title: Re: The Welcoming Committee
Post by: benny! on February 12, 2013
Welcome PAEz ... members of this forum do use various languages to code effects. C/C++/C#, Java, Javascript, FreeBasic, PureBasic ... it is just a matter of taste I guess. Have fun - and looking forward to see your productions!

Hi there!

Oh yeah! Completely crazy question but why is FreeBASIC seemingly so popular?

I hope i can learn and teach the little i know.

Title: Re: The Welcoming Committee
Post by: Raizor on April 08, 2013
Welcome Cubed and CosmicColours :)

Cubes, re:FreeBasic, I think that's probably due to the fact that it's a free product and is fairly easy to get to grips with (compared to C++ for instance). PureBasic is also fairly popular here, but that costs money, hence FreeBasic being a bit more popular. Everyone here works in different languages, from Basic, C++, Flash/ActionScript, C#, ASM and quite a few others. Whatever your choice of language, I'm sure you'll find some interesting posts related to it here :)

CosmicColorurs, I'm just getting into WPF myself for a personal project after many years of WinForms stuff. I may bug you with some questions in future :)

Hi,

I've been programming various sorts of things for a while, generally trying to solve interesting problems with small snippets of code.  In general I write very little, preferring to search out and find those best ways of doing things.  The demoscene has fascinated me since seeing amiga and PC demos from the beginning of the 90s, and I have finally decided to look into the ways that demos are coded.  I find the 4k or 64k demos the most fascinating: how to get big things out of small.  I did a PhD in mathematics, and have a tendency to look for mathematical beauty in things, and there's a certain amount of that in the demoscene that I want to start finding out about.

Anyway, that is enough about me for now.

Hope to post/chat/interact more in the future.

Just thought I'd make an "official" introduction.

Anyway, I'm not a developer, just a C# hobbyist, and dabble with other languages as needed. I play the piano - I was actually going to major in piano performance before I realized that it wouldn't pay my bills! - so I'm by default a little artistic and see programming as one of my ways of being creative. I was in the "home automation" industry for almost 10 years, working for a dealer before recently starting to work for a manufacturer.

My wife hasn't made the move yet to Texas with me, so I have a TON of free time on my hands and what better way to spend it than programming?

Hello,

I'm Cabbibo. I didn't learn until about a year ago that we lived in the future. Since then I've been making as many visual / aural experiences as possible. About a week ago I learned about the demoscene for the first time, and realized that its what I've been doing without even realizing it. I can't wait to dive deeper into the rabbithole, because this is the art that I truly believe in.

I have no idea what I'm doing yet, but am constantly learning more. If you want to see what I've done so far (Mostly using WebGL and Web Audio API), you can check out My Site (http://cabbibo.com) . I am most interested in learning, specifically in C++ , because the more you know the more you can create. Please message me about anything, I'd love to meet as many kindred spirits as possible!

Post by: dadac on November 08, 2013
Well hello there.
This is my mandatory 1st post here.

I am a ~30y old dude from Finland. I found an interest in programming around 1991 and rather quickly found the demoscene, and became highly interested graphics / demo programming.

I started out with gwbasic (oh the agony), but after a dos update got qbasic. A big step was when I pirated QuickBasic from some helpful sceners @ assembly'94, and finally was able to compile my effects for a significant speed boost. From there i switched to Turbo Pascal with possibility for inline assembler, and life was good.
Then around y2K my interests kinda started drifting around, and I sort of quit coding for about a decade.

Meanwhile I did quite a lot of 3D work, and finally started to experiment with scripting in 3D-Studio and Rhinoceros.  The new found interest in procedural geometry / graphics generation through these software then evolved to a rebirth of interest programming in general. So a few years ago I started to play around, mainly with C# and javascript for opengl / webgl stuff. 

I was very pleased to realize how much easier everything is nowadays, with all the information readily available, with an abundance of libraries and frameworks to help with heavy lifting. And perhaps even I learned a thing or two since my early demo programming days, making many things so much clearer now.

And well. Here I am now. Ranting about the past like someone's grandma.
So yeah. Hello everybody.

I used to do GWBASIC way back in 1992\1993 and was working my own kinda like Database(I still got GWBASIC Code Listings somewhere  ;D

Then I went on QBASIC to code text adventure which is much better than Gwbasic!

C# is very good one and there is lots of options for C# like SharpDX , SharpGL and also XNA too

Enjoy your stay and if you got any questions to ask then I am sure guys on the forum will be ready to answer it :)

Welcome onboard dadac!... we all feel nostalgic sometimes, there's nothing wrong with it! ^_^
Your story started as mine, I did some qbasic 3D spinning cubes back in the days too, but sooner after that I quit coding for about 25 years now (life sucks, you know)... time flows, dude!  hope to see some of your new ramblings-in-code somewhere in the forum!

Hello everyone!

I've been programming in several languages for years (mainly Delphi nowadays, since that's what I use at work), but I really can't remember the last time I coded something fun. So this week I decided to start learning about graphics programming, which is new to me.

I've been watching demos and cracktros for a long time and I've always been fascinated by their music and visual effects (I usually work with Windows forms and controls, which gets boring fast). I hope to learn more about coding such works of electronic art.

Cheers!

Hi all (0:

Thanks to the reply poster on another popular social media site that pointed me here, truly great stuff!

I've seen the whole scene come to life, from the days of old TRS-80's / ZX Spectrum through to todays pimped hardware... and hopefully on into quantum toys.

Started out in BASIC and moved on up to Modula, C, Assembly and a big long list... (saves me typing, and your time reading :)

I'm a language addict, but I found a slice of zen with the Watcom Assembler, which rocked because it used Intel syntax and allowed you to specify register allocation... it was a joy to behold.

Yes I am aware GNU C can do that too, but I have an allergy to AT&T syntax, plus DOS gave me the metal and that's what I was used to, until I collided head first with Linux.

Which brings me to ARM Assembly, I love the Raspberry Pi, and thanks to the Intel syntax switch with GNU C (yes we made friends over time) and a lot more registers, it's great fun! But then there's the GPU messaging thing.. *sigh* more metal please!

On the side, I love Gentoo and Haiku (not the written kind :0)

Hello there!

I'm 35 - 40 yo guy from edinburgh, scotland. I've been programming since the 80's, starting out with zx81 and moving upto bbc basic then risc assembly. in the 90s i moved onto c and intels cisc assembly, I did a lot of reverse engineering and wrote a few patches, i did some graphics programming but i was never very imaginitive, lol.

But now, I've not done any  programming for the last 10 years and have been getting back into it, recently.
I'm using purebasic at the moment which is pretty good for prototyping, but moving into a c enviroment, pelles c looks good.

I use linux, not as much as I used too due too game support, and also have a couple of single board computers, The Pi and arduino.
I also dabble in electronics and other stuff mostly diy.

Anyhoo, this forum looks pretty good and I look forward to taken part.

Hi there :)

Really can't say why I didn't sign up here before now, but better late than never, as they say.

Well - a bit about me, who I am and what I do.
Name's Casper, I'm 36 years old (at the time of writing this)
I'm from Copenhagen, Denmark and goes by the name Punqtured. I'm member of the groups Eventide and Fnuque.
 
I specialize in size-restricted music, and I've done quite a few executable music competition-entries as well as music for 4k, 16k and 64k. Some of you might actually have seen some of them :)

My preferred synths are Clinkster for 4k and Quiver for 64k, but I've also used a number of other scene-synths such as 4klang, V2 and 64klang.

I've seen some of the work you guys do in here, and I'm really amazed at how helpfull people are - especially to newcomers. I've been in the demoscene since late 80's and attended my first demoparty in 1992 (The Party in Denmark) and still enjoy visiting parties (managed to go to 9 this year)

I always release the source-files of the music I do (I use Renoise) and hope it will help others to get inspired or learn from it, remix it, play around with it or whatever they like.

Having made music for a substantial number of years (never professionally, though) I'm fairly experienced, and whenever there's time, I'd probably be able to help some of you guys out if you need a piece of music, even if you're in a hurry. There's no guarantee it'll be good, but at least you'll have a nice little tune for your prods ;)

Well - If anyone has questions or simply want to say hi, do feel free do drop me a note.

And yes - I'll have to get myself a nice, suitable avatar of some sort :)

Cheers

Hello everybody !

I have just registered so this is my first post. I first come it touch with coding in 1992 when I was 2nd grade. But I started to really code in 2004 and to build demos. In 1996 I received my first pc 486 at 66mhz. Even since then I liked the demoscene but since internet was a lot expensive I struggled to find some demos. I primary code in c/c++ and c#. I also have some knowledge of Directx and Unity 3d.

Hi my name is STBasic and i am new here and have tried to program for about 28 years. starting with Atari 8 Bit Basic and then on STOS on the Atari ST and then tried BASIC and BASIC and now use Freebasic.

I have not programmed anything to publish as i get stuck and then some over idea comes a long and then i start that project, so never finished a project to release to the public.

I have always wanted to make a game of be able to do things that i see on the old Cracktos on the Atari ST.

so i am trying to make a game on the Atari ST and i use Freebasic to learn more on programming, also i would like to be able to program in Java, C and be able to use PHP

hi all,

i'm Waste,  i m more than 30 , i'm from France, i started demo coding a lot time ago on Amstrad and basic / z80 assembly , now i would like to make demoscene effects on pc ,

i used to code with Delphi and VB6 first , then i 'm comming to c++ and x86asm ,

what langage do you advice me to learn to realize sine scroll, rasters , etc...  i will be obliged to start from scratch,  c++ is difficult for me, as far as demoeffects are concerned, it's difficult to find readable source code of sine scrolls , allegro seems to be abandonned for SDL ,

i don't know if i must go further with c++ or learning Blitz Basic or free-pure basic .... if here there is a skillest community in BLitz, perharps it will be easier for me to ask for advises,

Hi!

Personally I'd say try to go for C style programming with SDL as C++ just makes things messy sometimes - especially when you're starting out.

There a good community based around SDL and a lot of samples/articles out there :)

freebasic!

once you start too explore the outer limits of freebasic its a natural progresion into c/c++ as almost everything tiny-ptc side can be ported very easily. its powerful easy to use and is a brilliant introduction into more complex languages.

oh and you can also use pointers and control memory in the same way as c if its needed.

What Programming language to used? Purebasic(Easy) or Freebasic(Medium) or C++ Allergo(Medium) or C++ SFML(Medium) :)

on How hard is whatever programming language I used before which you see (Easy or medium or Hard)...for example assembler(Hard because You need understand all the commands and regsiters!)

They all do good job if you learn em :)

Hey all, New to the scene, very new... didn't know what the demoscene was until about 48 hours ago. Watched a Demo by Razor1911 and fucking loved it. uninstalled my virus scanner and have been downloading 64k's since. I'm an Artist both digital 3d modeling and traditional. I got my first comp when i was like six it was the trs-80 that and a book of basic, i spent hours typing the code in the book to make my screen flash colors and say random text, eventually started writing very simple stuff as I started understanding the code. Shit happened and I lost touch with all of it... 15 years later I went to prison for  :boxer:  an asshole he ended up :crutches: and I got booked. Now here I am enjoying Art and learning how to create.

Hey all :)

I'm Dale from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England. I was brought up on Amigas and have had an interest in the demoscene for quite a long time, but only recently have started diving into programming properly. I used to work in IT, but now I am a Computer Science student at Newcastle University, with the intention of turning my love for programming and computer architecture into a professional career.

I took part in the Sundown UK demoparties in 2009 and 2010 as a musician, and hope to return this year! :) The party organiser (rc55, awesome dude!) is who actually referred me to this site.

I am fascinated by audio/visual programming and I'd love to try and pick up some good techniques as seen in some of those classic intros and demos. Recently I managed to code a very simple sine scroller in C/SDL, ported it to OSX and Android using the NDK, and am now porting it to JavaScript/HTML5 as part of my University coursework! :)

Cheers. :)

i previously already programmed on the c64 and amiga demos, for different groups, but this time is long ago.
 
i learned by chance freebasic know and would consequently much old school intros coden.

Came by this forum a while back, as someone posted a remake of the A500 classic Supremacy.

Now, I code in c + + and uses OpenGL to make some small intros but nothing presentable  ;D

I'm Aapo from Finland, but because Finnish is a horrible mess for non-Finns to pronounce, I go by shinmai pretty much everywhere (plus, it basically means 'newbie' in Japanese, which is my outlook on life, there's always something to learn, someone is always lightyears ahead, forever a newbie :P).
I got my first computer, an Atari 520 STF, when I was three years old and ever since seeing the first few sine scrollers in floppy menus I've been enamored with all things demoscene. I've been programmin in one form or another my whole life, and after digging out an old Atari ST from the storage while cleaning, sparked my interest to try and hack together some silly intros and other stuff like that.
I've been lurking on these forums for ages and finally decided to register an account today.

I currently mostly code in Java (with OpenGL, I'm trying to develop games with a few friends) but for my 'demoscenish' experiments it's Devpac assembler and Turbo C (and, if I can find the diskette, maybe GFA Basic :D) on the Atari ST and Three.js+GLSL on the PC :)

Hi all, I'm weezer from Sweden! On this forum I actually decided to re-use my old handle that I had back in the days when I was a totally unknown and insignificant player in the Amiga demo scene. For a couple of years in the mid 90's I was part of a small Swedish demo group called Factor (FTR), and was a musician by trade. Still producing music as a hobby, but of course with more modern tools then ProTracker. :)

These days I've become more interested in revisiting and keeping an eye on the demo scene in general, and would also like to venture into the world of programming. I will probably do some 68000 assembly stuff just for fun and to get into the retro groove, but the main goal is to learn a more modern programming language, probably C#.

Hi all, i started off with an acorn electron when i was 4 (1982 approx) and then on to the commodore 64 a few years later and then got an amiga and joined the piracy scene as a modem trader for Dual Crew  - Shining (DCS) and traded on many top USA bbs sites such as Pirates Haven, The Ghetto, USS Enterprise , Edge of the World, Fast Trax , Danse Macabre to name a few. After 1993 i quit the scene for several years and eventually purchased a PC
and have been in numerous groups such as Hoodlum & Deviance and eventually quit the trading scene to concentrate on programming. Over the last few months i have been concentrating on C++ DirectX but have some experience with Visual Basic .NET C# and a little Delphi but right now am involved in increasing my C++ skills. Am using Visual Studio 2013 Ultimate and compiling many examples from others and learning from there source code.

So although i know my way around code i would have trouble creating something from scratch as my learning has been on/off over last year or so.

He,

My name is Pim.
When i first found this site i was amazed at the amount of resources and knowledge that is available at this web site.

My personal preference is in FreeBasic for coding.
My projects are not so much coding demo's (although i am getting more into this when reading various posts) but more of retro game programming (keen Commander / secret agent stile) in either dos or windows.

I am currently working on a (for my standards) BIG project which is a game called SLIMO.
SLIMO will be a full fledged platformer game (8 - bit style) .

Ok, got to go ---> will soon upload some screenshots of work in progress.

Hello everyone!  Just got back to check out that new weather competetion and say hi to you all!  See few familiar names from that old yabasic forum and lots of new faces.  How are things here?

I have been experimenting with html5 and making small html/javascript games lately.

its brilliant to see you around again after so many years :cheers:

i am between javascript html 5 and java for the android platform atm. i have always been a fan of portable consoles so javascript and java is now at a point of being perfect for sharing between multiple platforms, portables included.

Hi!

My name is Enrico, from Italy, near Venice. I started coding when I was 10 (in 1981) on a Vic-20; then I was proud owner of the mighty C64 and A500, then 286 etc. I've programmed in many languages (e.g. asm, Pascal, C/C++) and software projects are my daily profession. I always loved demos, but unfortunately at the time my young friends were gamers or beginner basic programmers and there was no scene around here. Now I found this cool forums, so here I am and... who knows... let's see!  :)

Greetz!

Hi All, just stumbled upon this site whilst surfing for old demos/cracktro's that i remember from my mis-spent youth.
I grew up with C64 and A500's and would watch the demos with awe!
Furthest I got was TRSI demo maker......hehehe
Have just bought a C64 and an A500 to start re-living my youth and show my 12yr old what real games/demos are all about.
Total novice, would love to start from scratch and learn/teach my son as we go along!
Thanks for having me aboard

I used to make music in ProTracker and the like, and tried but failed to learn assembly language on the 68000. Hopefully, I'll have better luck this time around. I'm particularly interested in coding for the Mac but it's just a case of knowing where to start and which languages & tools I should be focusing on. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi @ll,

first of all my english is really bad, so I am sorry for that. My Name is Chris and I am 44 Years old and love the old and new demos from C64 to the new PC-GPU-Stuff. In the 80's I own a C64 and later an Amiga. On the Amiga I started coding with assembler and wrote some very simple intros. Then I stopped coding Demos.

Now it is time for me to come back to Democoding on the PC and I hope the members of this forum can help me to start. I have some knowledge in C, C++, Java and PHP, but in no language I am an expert.

So that's all for now.

best regards
Chris

Hello, everyone!

I've not been a part of any groups or anything, but I've developed an interest in the demoscene over the past few years so this board immediately piqued my interest when I stumbled on in here from Google haha.

I'd like to be able to learn from and, hopefully, eventually share some interesting content.
I got into programming over 10 years ago after developing an interest in game development and made a profession out of it.
I usually find myself writing C++, though I prefer C for various reasons. I also like PureBasic, but I'm still a bit new to that one haha. I've used many languages to varying extents, but these are the languages I find myself using the most as of late.

I also make a hobby of reverse engineering software, though this is rarely done with the intent of cracking anything, but rather to facilitate a means of translating applications and games that lack any straightforward means through which to translate them and are unlikely to be officially translated.

I tend to take my privacy online a bit seriously, so I ask that you please excuse my brief and somewhat shallow introduction. ^^;
Anyway, I'm glad to be here. Hopefully we can all get along. ^^

Hey everyone

Recently I have become pretty interested in demo stuff, especially music and cool shader stuff :) In fact the reason I joined is because I wanted to download a precompiled binary of Bonzomatic that @emook posted but this is one of those dumb sites where you have to register to download files, and during the registration it said that you have to make a post in 24 hours or your account will be deleted which is even dumber, so I figured I would just get that out of the way now lol

I'm not particularly sure what I could offer to people here demo related, I am OK at writing music but not fantastic (though I am practicing and getting better), my daws of choice are reaper, famitracker, deflemask, and milkytracker, when I was younger I made a few short beats on LGPT and PSPSeq but those files are lost :( I have dabbled with protracker but I doubt I will use it often unless I am making music for a retro 4 channel compo or something like that.  I only really know the basics of programming so I wouldn't be very helpful on the coding side of things since demo centric code is way out of my league atm  :D I know how to do really basic stuff in C/C++ and Lua, I do know a little about 6502 and m68k asm which were surprisingly easy for me to grasp given my general lack of programming experience. But unfortunately since I don't have much time for coding I have never really written any full interesting programs. Maybe I could give people some cool art ideas. Maybe  :D

Post by: aNdy on June 06, 2018
Hello

I've been browsing and posting in the PureBasic section of the forum for a while now, so thought I'd post here finally.  I mainly play around in 8bits, pixelling and composing for C64, but have also composed for the Plus4 and Atari 8bit.

You can see/hear some of my C64 stuff on my CSDb profile here:  https://csdb.dk/scener/?id=6404

I'm a member of the groups Cosine (http://www.cosine.org.uk/) and Arkanix Labs (http://www.arkanixlabs.com/).

For various reasons, I ended up coding in PureBasic a couple of years ago and have knocked up a couple of utilities for the C64 to help with graphics work, namely creating character sets using UltrafontPC (https://csdb.dk/release/?id=156195) and a mapping tool called CartographPC (internal only at present).

I recently fancied trying out some of the other functions of PureBasic, so have coded up a couple of simple demos.  Firstly was 'Old School Demo 1' (http://www.dbfinteractive.com/forum/index.php?topic=6756.0) and most recently, 'Beast Tribute - Old School Demo 2' (http://www.dbfinteractive.com/forum/index.php?topic=6766.0).  Both the demos include heavily commented source for others to poke and prod.

There will shortly be a PureBasic game added to that as well that I'm not far off finishing, that is a PC conversion of a Cosine 8bit game called 'Blok Copy'.

Cheers!
