          The organisation crew  is just warming up, we have planned for
        your entertainment so far, a nice 1000+watts of bass  (and other
        sounds which might come out), 2 hi quality Big Screen Projectors
        to display obscene jestures with, or maybe demos and such.

          We have  invited  our brothers  from the  Amiga world  so once
        again we will be able to all *play* together.

          The cost will be cheap,  we aint here  for your money,  expect
        about $15 or so per ticket. But that depends on our costs. :(

          We will have for you a  party network permanently connected to
        the net,  so bring your pc so you can talk to your favourite IRC
        people from across the room!

          ** Wild Demo compo is designed specifically for 3d accelerated
        demos, but also since  it is a amiga/pc party,  amiga people can
        enter with whatever they can produce to non-standard demo rules,
        ie, Animations  with synched  music, etc.  :)  Also if  you  can 
        provide any other special hardware you can use it!

          The wild compo is for all  you creative people who cant handle
        restrictions, thats whats its all about,  be creative, be funny,
        thats why its 'wild' because its not just a big 3dfx 3d show. :)

       """""""""""""  general rules.                                ::::

          For the competitions,  all entries must be  handed in at times
        which will be  posted at the party,  the competitions will start
        at about 6pm on the night.  Entries may be handed in on  (for PC
        entries), 1.44MB floppy disks, IoMega Zip Disks, CDs, IDE HDD :)
        Amiga entries, 720k floppy disks only.

          All entries must have  .txt files  included with  all the info
        about its creators,  and have an appropriate  label on the disk.
        Disks  will  only be  returned on  request,  if it is  correctly

          Each entry can only compete in one competition and must follow
        the rules of that competition,  the organisers reserve the right
        to not allow any entry for any reason.  Only one entry per group 
        / person is permitted in each competition.

          The screen resolutions of entries should be kept to reasonable
        levels,  as the  higher you go  the lower the  projector quality 
        displays. 640x480 is the ideal level, while color depths of upto
        32bit will be supported,  the visual differece between 32bit and 
        say 16bit  will be not  noticible,  which should  be taken  into
        account for size and such reasons.

          When working on your entry take into account the compo machine
        and the competition conditions, such as the projector, and sound
        system,  which will be in favour of hi and low range frequencies
        as with most hi-powered sound systems.

        External Entries:

          The organisers  of Scnery98 take no  responsibility at all for
        external entries to  competitions,  but we will allow  them, but
        only solicited entries.  ie, someone who is  attending the party
        can enter a  competition on your behalf if you  can't make it to 
        the party.

          The rules for this are that the person you nominate, takes all
        responsibility for  your entry,  and they are  will recieve  the
        prize (if any)  on your behalf.  All external entries must be so
        noted and  the person on your  behalf must be  mentioned  in the
        accompaning text files.

          Also any person  soliciting an external  entry must follow the
        competition rules,  in particular  only one  entry per  person /
        group for each competition! So one person cannot enter more than
        one external entry for one competition.

        Party Network details:

          At the party we will have setup  a server connected to the net
        throughout the duration of the party (baring unexpected problems
        and such), the server will be running WindowsNT 4, with NetBEUI,
        IPX/SPX and TCP/IP network protocols setup.

          If you bring  your pc and want  to connect to the network, and
        inparticular the internet, access will be through a proxy server
        with all information provided at the party. So bring your pc for
        fun. ;)
