Devilmarkus and ed209 / Slipstream released their new musicdisc “Remember the 80’s” on the Sundown 2016 demoscene party. As you might have already guessed, it features well-known music from the 80’s on the Amstrad CPC. They also participated in the wild demo competition and ranked 2nd.
You can download the musicdisc from Pouet.net (don’t forget to vote :-)).
TRSI released a new musicdisc for the Amstrad CPC on the Nordlicht demoscene party. The disc features 7 tunes by Virgill, which you can select in a nice menu. It was also ranked 1st in the wild competition of the Nordlicht party. You can download the musicdisc at the end of this posting or from Pouet.net (don’t forget to vote :-)) and if you don’t want to listen to the tunes on the real machine or an emulator, you can listen to them on Soundcloud.
About 2 years ago we celebrated the 30th anniversary of our beloved Amstrad CPC and three more years ago the call for participation to produce a “megademo” was started, which should be released on the 30th anniversary to celebrate the Amstrad CPC. Ok, it is a little late, but finally the megademo was released on the ReSeT #28 demoparty in Coutances / France… and it was worth to wait for it :-)!!!
The demo consists of different parts by various demosceners, which can be selected in a small menu part at the beginning of the demo. For those who do not want to wait, you can watch the recorded demo in the video below, but – as always when viewing demos – the demo looks best on the real hardware. So you should download it from Pouet.net (do not forget to vote for it) and run it on the real hardware!!!
A big “Thank you!” flies to all the people who participated in the production of this demo!!!
The Revision demoparty in Saarbrücken / Germany is just over and it was – as always – a great event and some CPC users attend to the meeting, too.
