Updated the Amiga Demo Scene Reference Manual to version 3.54. This update includes alot of changes since the last release on ExoticA including Hypnotic and Sanity being completely reworked.

Placed a Christmas logo on the Intro Page. It's possible we still might have a brand new Christmas logo although it depends if XTC has enough time :)

08-Dec-99: Added the following DeliTracker Custom modules to the CUST-Custom Section (View: Compact|Full):

Batman_The_Movie.lha: Title and In-game music from this Ocean classic. Composed by Jonathan Dunn.

All the tunes above were customised by me (BuZz), and have been tested on my a500, a1200 and a3000. I hope they work ok for you :)

25-Nov-99: Fixed a silly filename error in yesterday's update with the music from World Championship Soccer on the MC-MarkCooksey Section (View: Compact|Full).
24-Nov-99: Did a complete revamp of the MC-MarkCooksey Section (View: Compact|Full).
This is a page containing music composed by Mark Cooksey (Obviously) for various Amiga games.
There are a couple of different music formats. The tunes using the earlier format are named with the prefix MCO. To play the older tunes you will need an extra DeliPlayer - MarkCookseyOld.lha - which is on the Amiga Players Section.
This replayer was made a long time ago and it really doesn't work too well, if at all, on higher end 680x0 CPU's. I will get this fixed soon.
I have also placed on there a new version of MarkCooksey player by Sunbeam - MarkCooksey.lha. This was released specially for ExoticA. Thanks Sunbeam :) Read the text inside the archive for details.
The following tunes are new to the MC-MarkCooksey Section, but others have had name improvements, and full credit information added also:

MC.World_Champ_Soccer.lha - Corrected 25-Nov-99

I was not happy at all with the ExoticA Links Section. This has now been remade, with links split onto several pages. Also fixed many of the links which were previously broken.

Added some DeliPlayer sources from Andy Silva. You can find them on the Source Section in the replays/DeliPlayers/Andy_Silva/ directory.

22-Nov-99: Again I apologise for lack of updates recently. I have been busy working on other things :) I will try to get another update done before the end of the month.

Added 8 original tunes from the game Lion Heart - Lion_Heart.lha - to the SA-SonicArranger Section (View: Compact|Full).
Unfortunately one tune (Geheim) is still only available in the final packed Sonic Arranger format which can be found on the SONIC-SonicArranger Section (View: Compact|Full).
This great music was composed by Matthias Steinwachs. Huge thanks to him for posting his original disks to me :)

Updated the Amiga Demo Scene Reference Manual to version 3.48. Since the last version many additions and changes have been made to many groups, including: Ackerlight, Crusaders, Mad Monks, Trilogy, Amaze, Anarchy, Anthrox, Arcane, Movers, Deathstar and many others.

Although I said the Editors Section would be finished soon, I have not had time to complete it. Due to many people requesting some of the files I have put them online. Check the Editors Page for more information.

Updated the Amiga Demo Scene Reference Manual to version 3.45. This manual is the largest and most in-depth source of information regarding releases on the Amiga Demo Scene covering releases from 1986 to today. It's also very much in constant development, and much more has to be added.
