Crusaders?
« on: March 02, 2017 »
Hi all,

Been a while since I posted anywhere but the Time Game topic, but I was looking for a bit of specialist knowledge that I figured you'd all be able to help me out with.

I'm actually after information on some of Bjorn Lynne's early work, Lynne being better known as Dr. Awesome of the Crusaders. While I've found plenty of footage of their old demos and such like, there's not much info about how they were distributed. Did they start out on cracks (and if so, any games/programs you remember) or were they stand alone productions? I just want to know how they got their footing in the scene. Anyone able to help? Thanks a bunch
I love semi-colons way too much ^^;

I definitely got all my demoscene stuff via Public Domain mail order.  Everything was available pretty much as soon as it was released and I got a catalogue posted every month or so.  So someone must have been sharing the disk images probably via bbs.
I got all my PD from NBS or 17bit.

That's awesome to know! I've just found a list of 17bit PD disks online which confirms this for me as well.
