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 :)

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:

Hi Cyb, thanks for introducing yourself, you've given yourself a kind of tight time frame but I cant think of a better way to spend a month than coding :)

Welcome to the site, hope you stick around.

thanks! :)

Yesterday I redid most of our website and most of it is up & running now ... Not bad in a days work :)

Today some c64 coding .. First trying to get stable raster with sprites ... If I remember how ....  :D

Is there a c64 corner around here somewhere? Let's have a look ...

there isnt a C64 corner dude, but perhaps you could post it in the other Languages area, http://www.dbfinteractive.com/forum/index.php/board,37.0.html and put a tag [c64] before the messages title. So people know its for the Commodore 64.

evening dbf + gvy demo code forum,

i'll be brief, Clyde got me into this down the pub.

Joking aside, from messages on your forum that ive seen looks to be a good place to tone my skills with your know how. 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.

end of transmission...
