The Scene Archives
Have you always been after a CD which has:-
- 100% demos, and no crappy mods/pics, except for party releases
- Totally Error Free (I have tried to maintain a 100% error free
ratio, but you know, gremlins can reign
terror on files.. :-) )
- Is in an Organised Way..
Well, if you have, then I welcome ye to "The Scene Archives - Volume #5".
I admit, the aim of this project is to provide the common user with access
to all the scene material that is available.. Yes, I have found some of these
items on various other CD's (not mentioning names), but the other disks are
usually very badly organised, and some of the files are errored.. But, note
that this total package contains over 6500 disks of my own collection, which
many have NEVER been on CD before.
The ordering of this CD is the disk numbering system that I use at home.
Gotta sort them somehow!!
This is the Fifth Volume of The Scene Archives. I proudly present to you
a collection of 1000 or so Disks of Scene Material, from Disks #4000 to #5000.
I intended this CD to be usable by a Disk Manager (ie, Directory Opus,
File Master, etc..)
Ok, now the credits:-
All disks collected by:- Tony Hasselbacher (The Heavyweight/Broken)
CD design and Made by:- Tony Hasselbacher (The Heavyweight/Broken)
Some people might be confused as with the terminology that I have used in
compiling the disks. Here is a preview overview as to what I'm talking
Animation - This is an animation (??)
Demo Packs - These are a collection of various items, which is on one
disk, with a spiffy menu. Some people really hate these
demo packs, but I think that they are very important as
they sometimes have nice small productions on it.
Dentro/Demo - I count this as a production which is in one file and
this also contains BBS Intros.
Digis:- This is just digitized samples
Document Disks - As it says.. Respect the Copyright laws when you use
Intro - These are usually small, one part productions.
Magazine - A digital magazine (wow!)
Menus - These are just menus that are used for demo packs
Miscellaneous - Things that don't fit elsewhere
Music Demos - Productions with music as the main feature
Slideshows - Productions with graphics as the main feature
Trackmo - This is a really large demo that has usally a lot of really
cool effects.. These are the best :-)
The reason I used .DMS files is that I want to preserve the feeling of
disk swapping!!! If it takes you too long to extract to a disk, just then use
FF0: instead. All Disks are compressed with the DMS System. Some disks are
also compressed with the Zoom system (.ZOM). You'll find the necassary
utilities in the "Utilities" Directory.
Also, with this volume, and every other following volumes, I have made a
few disks CD friendly. As now, all the Scene Material that needs to be
installed to the Hard Drive to run, it all will be ready to run from the CD.
Finally, I like to greet ALL the people I have ever known, as they have
enriched my life in the Scene (The Amiga and the C64!).
