Please keep in mind that we'll be gathering in a public place, so public laws/etc apply: That means no fires or drunk and disorderly conduct will be allowed. We'll be mighty disappointed if the boys in blue show up.
There will be three competitions: Music, Graphics, Demo
Your entry should be prevously unreleased material and your own work.
All entries will be released on scene.org/pouet.net under the relevant Creative Commons licence.
A bonus system has been put in place to encourage oldschool & demoscene style productions. The bonuses listed increase the votes for that entry by the specified percentage - ie. +50% means each vote is worth 1.5 for that production, +100% means each vote is worth 2!
Remote entries are allowed, send them to email@example.com.
All remote entries MUST be receieved the day before beachparty 2009 (27/3/09). Otherwise, you'll have to be there in person on the first day - this is the best way because you'll get a snag and a beer!
You may enter more than once into any compo, however organisers may ask you to only submit one in the unlikely event we're swamped with entries.
Demo compo (wild)
Max run time 7 minutes.
All videos/demos accepted.
We will have Amiga/c64/PC hardware on the day. Demos for other platforms should be captured to video beforehand, or bring a laptop. We'll have a PC laptop core2duo/XP/geforce8400M on the day - obviously the GPU fill rate is slower than on a desktop.
Videos should be in DivX or Xvid format.
- +50% Executable realtime demo
- +100% Oldschool realtime (pre 1994 hardware - c64, amiga, etc)
Max length 5 minutes.
Chiptunes and tracked music only!
There are a couple of points of note for newskool trackers (Psycle/buzz/VST/etc) ... the bonuses won't apply as it wouldn't be fair to traditional tracker users. You may bring an MP3 of your track, but please also submit the source file.
- +50% 4 channel
- +100% less than 32k size
Max res 800x600. Max ANSI/ASCII size 80x24 (Amiga), 80x50 (MS-DOS).
