Hey All!

Was deeply involved with the ANSi/ASCii scene in the 90's, ran a few bbs's, was in a few art groups, and warez groups - made a few loaders with a friend and looking to get back into things with my spare time hoping to learn something cool and new from here :)

Thanks,

Welcome, hifi! I'm a total sucker for old ascii art in readmes, nfos and what not. I have a collection around here somewhere. And I have fond memories of the old single-line BBSs. Crawl out from under your rock on Friday or Saturday nights, dial up a bbs, read whatev forums, download any new demos that may have appeared, play some tradewars and what not. Seriously good times.

Hello all,

Nice to see some oldskool ascii fans in the previous posts.  ;)

Well it's nice to be back on DBF again (hey Shock!) and I'm really picking up the slack on my old forums after a long hiatus. I think its the fact I'm resurrecting an Amiga A500 so I must be getting all nostalgic again.

I haven't really noticed how active this forum is nowadays but I did always prefer forums as a chat medium and they offer more personality than social media groups.

Hello hifi!

I *loved* the 90's ACSII scene.  I used to collect as much stuff as possible to view on my Amiga including nfo's, readme.1st's, etc, etc.

Did dabble myself using Blacks Editor on my Amiga 1200 and produced a few collies, but was never part of a group or anything.

Hi aNdy and welcome aboard. I loved the ASCII/ANSI scene back in the good old Amiga days. Soooo many lovely works of art <3

Hey everyone!

I haven't been part of the demoscene (so far), but was always following it with admiration from the outside.
I'm interested mostly in sizecoding, 64k, 4k and such stuff. Popped in to see the challanges / tutorials and of course the work of others, so I might learn a thing or two surely while here :)

Best

Hi roptr! There are plenty of resources here for you to take a look at, at, while things are a little quieter around here (especially in the summer months) there will usually be someone here to answer your questions and give pointers. Welcome aboard  :hi:
I love semi-colons way too much ^^;

Hey everyone,

root42 from Germany here. I never was part of any noteworthy efforts in demo scening back in the day, but visited Evoke a couple of times, and am interested in the scene. I currently do a YouTube series "Let's Code MS DOS" where I also cover some demo scene effects, explaining how they work and basically doing walkthroughs on how to code. I won't advertise this here, but you can look me up if you like.

I mainly want to ask questions here for my research on the topics. Also want to share the code that I come up with. That's available after every video anyway, but you might not be watching those, so posting a link to the source might be useful. ;)

So, I will post from time to time and try to read the interesting stuff here!

Cheers,

root42

Hi all. I've finally decided to join up here! I've been interested in demos/ intros for a long time and even dabbled in Windows programming a little. I love all the oldschool stuff for the Amiga, Atari ST and MS DOS. While my skills are rudimentary at best, I certainly hope I will be able to learn a lot more as time goes on, and eventually share something worthwhile.

Hello!

Ogrim from Norway here. I came across this forum researching the SNDH format. I am using the Jam player to listen to tunes on Windows - but I'd like a TUI-based player (like cmus or musikcube) that also works better with high DPI monitors.

So I'd reckon first step was parsing the SNDH files, and see what I can do :)

I only picked up my first C64 12-13 years ago, and built up a collection of Amigas and Ataris since. Been appreciating the music much longer though - used to fire up keygens to listen to the tunes back in high school :)  I work as a programmer mainly with .NET and some web stuff, never done any demoscene work before.
