It is to notice that Atari 8bit, C64 (and C128 I guess) and ZX spectrum have their own categories, while CPC has to compete with others 8bit systems in the "Other 8bit" categories.

You'll notice :

= Logon System, well known for CPC things, released a badass demo on MSX1 . and managed to beat a SAM coupé... well done OVERFLOW.

= 2 Amstrad CPC released things :

#3. Jeni & MaV /
Federico Faggin and Sir Alan Sugar
an invincible duo 350 pt.

I guess it is an hommage to Z80 creator and AMS-trad creator too... in a sovietsky funny fashion...
Cute Mode1 but I guess sovietic era references are not the way to go in eastern europe...

>>1k intro
#1. goblinish / Ivy 461 pt.

also a pair of Thomson MO5/TO7 which is always fun.

So any screenshot or videos from the CPC (and others) prods are welcomed.

I added our contribution to Demozoo.

yes, That was you, well done it is a nice Mode1, I added it as well in my first post.

Any comments of this event (if you went there) is welcome, also dare to share some photos as well.

To get Videos and photos :

Also :

great to see they launched things with real machines (as it seems) and not jsut emulation... or did they ?
cute to See SAM (coupé), Thomson (MO6) and Arnold 6128 on the same table.

1k competition :


I'm glad you like it. :)

This idea has been on my mind for quite some time. We weren't sure if we should release it at the Forever party. It's a risk to do such a thing when the crowd might take the matter quite seriously still. There were some laughs, so I guess at least some did find it funny.

I did not take any photos, LCD (also from Austria) did, so I'm going to ask him for some.

There's never been emulation involved for the last three years when I attended. They always connect the real machines to the beamer during the compos, which can be an exercise in patience during the "other" compos since there's usually two or three machines at the start.
Their new beamer only supports S-Video, VGA and HDMI, no SCART. I did not bring Bryce's S-Video converter with me, so a DVD player was added to provide SCART, also because of Pulkomandy's Thomson computer. Problem solved.

This year the party's motto was "Back to the Cyberspace". Unfortunately, the motto has been revealed a bit too late, and the entries reflect that. As a consequence, they let the crowd decide next year's motto immediately at the party place, and it will be "Defender of the 8-bit".

The organisation is good. You might compare it to the ReSeT party, only a lot bigger. Eliot takes great lengths to serve food at the ReSet, while the Forever is too big for that, but Mike and his brother are ordering pizzas on a case by case basis, which works well. They also have a buffet which is open in the morning to fetch a coffee or a sandwich or two.
You can books rooms in advance (10 Euros for two nights), but be careful with whom you share your rooms; some people are snoring ...

While the party place opens on Friday, Saturday afternoon is where the competitions begin. These are introduced by a performance of Wotnau, which is always quite funny, btw.

The final results reflect my opinion quite well. The MSX demo was quite a sight on the big screen. :)
As last year, I'm disappointed that Pulkomandy's graphics entry did not win. I do think that the Thomson are underappreciated computers, and hope that there will be a seminar in the future to introduce them to the crowd. :)

The compos are followed by a party game, you might say, though it's very geeky stuff. This year's was finding a term, and five pictures are shown sequentially that are in some way connected to the word the crowd should guess. All words had to do with the cyberspace and games theme.
Sunday is comparatively short. At 10am the prize ceremony starts. The winners of 1st and 2nd places received a t-shirt (can be seen on the web site) and a certificate, while 3rd places receive only the certificate. By 12 o'clock, most people are busy packing for their way home.

Yeah, OVerFlow posted a photo of his prize at CPCrulez/MSXvillage...

he will wear it at Alchimie 2015.

it's very near my home...
Foreigners welcomed.
L'Alchimie 0xb du vendredi 13 au dimanche 15 Novembre 2015 | Triple A
(despite the lack of english page for the moment)

I profit to do some advertisement for Alchimie here... I mean, really it is a nice Demoparty that should get more attention from peoples from otehr countries...
At the moment we mostly have swoss and Belgians as "Foreigners" but few CPCists are coming now.
Food (and wine) is great, you can sleep there or rent an hotel...

It is a lot bigger than Forever but also it is not only 8 bit themed... you also have 16-32 bit machines (mostly Amiga/ST) and modern stuffs as well.

Sadly as it is in France, prices may be a bit more expenssive than in ex-iron curtain challenged countries.

QuoteAs last year, I'm disappointed that Pulkomandy's graphics entry did not win. I do think that the Thomson are underappreciated computers, and hope that there will be a seminar in the future to introduce them to the crowd.
Yeah, Thomson computer's main issue with demoscene, rarity aside, is that it never had proper sound chip...

Speccies would cheat because the Speccy128/+2/+3 had an AY so they would often use an AY card on ZX48.
ORIC had an AY like so many systems (CPC, ST, Speccy, ORIC, MSX as well...)

Even the PCW could pretend to use an AY because the peripheral existed.

But they never released a proper Music card/cartridge on those thomsons....

To make Graphics for MO5/TO7 is quite difficult...
I mean you cannot cheat with some Hardsprites to get extra touches of colours here and there and the palette is more on the bright side.

But I'm pretty sure the second genration + an AY card comparable to toto's cards (with 2x AY then) could really turn any MO6/TO8 into a very serious Demo making machine.

= 6809 CPU is always credited as the best 8bit CPU... better than 6500 and Z80 as many say.
= basically you get the CPC video modes, but with PLUS/Miga/STe Palette, extra fun video modes
= 128K RAM for MO6, 256k RAM for TO8... wow...
=cartridge port.
= has a DAC/beeper like a speccy...

Hell even MO5/TO7 would somewhat perfrom as well as Speccies/ORICs on many points concerning Demos.

Really, a Thomson second generation + AY soundchip would really perform somewhat better than most CPCs...
Just the meagre scene don't want no soundchip, so is dying.

You waste all CPU to produce pathethic sounds or do nothing in the sounsds departements, so it is unfit to compete... WTF ?

but ok, CPC has Fullscreen and many tricks up its sleeves and its pretty cool as well.

TotO ? anyone ?
