                              The Scene Archives

                                  Volume #9

    I  welcome  you  to  "The  Scene Archives - Volume #9", encompassing disks
#8001 to #8950.

    Normally, the regular users of The Scene Archives, would of noticed that
this CD contains only 950 Disks, instead of the usual 1000.  The reason is
that all the stuff in this Volume seems to be quite large, compared to the
previous 8 CD's.

    I hope that everyone likes the new covers/design, as it looks pretty cool
I think.

    If you are new to The Scene Archives Series, please look on the various
index that are on the CD. You'll find on these index the various items that
are on the previous CD's.

    For ordering information about the previous Volumes, please look at the
Cover Booklet that came with this CD.

    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 950 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, as is this CD.

    I hope to have Volume #10, ready by Mid 2000, and then, volume #11 at the
end of 2000. (In Theory).

    Anyway, I hope you enjoy this Volume, and all the previous Issues as well.

    Also Imagine how many lines of code, and hours worked on the pictures and
music, to make all of these 9100+ 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... Or you just can look
at the lists/indexes

    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.
