Floppotron 2.0

Some people just don't know when to stop.

(Yeah, chances are you've seen this already, since it's gone viral by now. But it's just too funny...)

Needless to say, the collection itself has also been updated. With the addition of 1022 new files, it now features over 48000 SIDs.

[demo/album] The Chiperia Project Issue #5

Yeah I know, I'm massively behind on all the great demoscene releases of the past month. This is partly due to me having been on vacation, but also due to lack of motivation in recent times. But fear not, I have no plans on giving up Ancient Wonderworld for now.

Anyway, time to start clearing the backlog. Mid June saw the release of another installment in the Chiperia musicdisk series for the classic Amiga computer. And once again, it is an absolutely top-notch collection of original Amiga chiptunes (in the original sense of the word), made by some of the best musicians in the scene. I'm simply amazed how these folks can keep up such a consistently high quality.


Sega Saturn Reverse-Engineered

Dr Abrasive aka jhl has succeeded in reverse-engineering the CD loading process of the Sega Saturn, something that has not been done in the over 20 years since the console was released. Congratulations for this incredible feat!

Here's a video by cTrix, with Dr Abrasive talking a little about the work he's done and the potential that's opening up as a consequence.
