    I'm trying to get the prods up on the main site with pictures and everything, so expect a few changes in the links during the coming days.

    Enjoy the show!

    Great. Will be taking a look at them as you add them to the site.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    I'm sure you will enjoy the demos. Many excellent contributions this year.

    Have finished adding the productions, so they are all available for download now.

    Many of the demos this year require 68060. Have had some troubles running them through WinUAE (my A1200 has only got a 030). Although, one can always watch them through video. Have added a video of Nature's Figure Four now, so that you all can watch it on the main site. Hopefully we'll get videos for the other contributions as well.

    Nice one. I just watched the video and the demo looks good. I liked the music too. However from watching the video of Nature's Figure Four production I can't really see why the system requirements are so high. I've seen productions with similar 3D effects that run on a standard A1200 before. Any ideas?

    Figure Four is a good production and it's incredible how much they can pack into 4KB. According to the authors, this is what the intro includes:

    - Realtime raytracing
    - 14bit audio streaming
    - Software synth

    Amazing for only 4KB!

    It is amazing to fit something like that into 4KB that is for sure. I have no idea how they could do that. The text I'm typing now is probably ending up taking up that much space!

    I still don't get why the system requirements are quite so high though.

    More videos have now been added to the site, which includes Soliloquy from Elude. Have also added many videos of other releases as well. Do a search for videos on the main site, and there should be quite a few popping up.
