The Scene Archives
I welcome ye to "The Scene Archives - Volume #8", encompassing disks
#7001 to #8000.
Well, now, The Scene Archives has now a cool little tool that makes The
Scene Archives a lot easier to easier to use :) .. Just read the docs on
"Scene Archives Search Utility (SASU)", for more information about it. This
program can be used on previous Volumes of The Scene Archives :)
This issue, I was lucky to actually get the 1000 disks onto the CD. Why
?? Well, basically, since everything these days is so big, the problem was
space, and the only way that I could get everything to fit was to crunch
everything down.. This included pictures, and photos and things. When you
look at the CD, you may notice that the some Party Pictures that the archives
are (sometimes) a few disks short.. This is because the picture were all
converted to 80% JPeg, and optimized. Or else GIF.. By doing this, it was the
only (real) way that I could get all the stuff on this CD..
Also, don't forget to get the other awesome CD, "The Best of The Scene
Archives, Volume #1", which is distributed thru APC&TCP.
I hope to have Volume #9, ready by late 1999, and then, volume #10 at the
in 2000. (In Theory).
Anyway, I hope you enjoy this Volume, and all the previous Issues as well.
Imagine how many like of code, and hours worked on the pictures and music,
to make all of these 8000 disks worth of stuff !! .. Too much to dream of !!
This CD is designed to work from a Directory Tool, like Directory Opus. Or
else, you can use the SASU utility that is on the CD...

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
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.. I class them different to Dentros/Demo in
that they are either multi-file, or bigger then 880k in size.
