Updated ExoticA's mirror of the High Voltage SID Collection. This brings it to version 4.4.
The collection now contains 17,730 C64 tunes.

|22-Nov-01:||Yesterday UnExoticA was again updated. New additions include the music from Pac-Land, P.P.Hammer, Toki, Cannon Fodder, Mr. Nutz, Pegasus and many others. For full information about the changes you can read the UnExoticA - Updates Page.|
Another update to UnExoticA. The update includes the music from the following games: The Amazing Spider-Man, Astate,
Bally II, Crime Does Not Pay, The Punisher,
Super Cauldron, Tetrix, Thunder Jaws, Whizz and Yogi's Great Escape.
For more detailed information on additions please read the UnExoticA - Updates Page.
Today was the deadline for the ExoticA Intro Logo Competition. However, I have decided to extend it to the end of the month so that people have more time to get their entries in.
The deadline will now be the 30th November. I will not alter this date (Promise!) :)
There is no limit to the number of entries per person so draw as many as you like :) There will also most likely be a prize for the 2nd/3rd place logos, but it depends the kind of response I get for the competition. Although there are no rules regarding the design of the logo (Apart from the 600 pixel width limit), logos incorporating an Amiga related theme will probably go down well with the judge :)
UnExoticA - The definitive Amiga Game Music collection has had a couple of updates in the last week. It now contains 3693 files packed into 722 archives - over 224 megabytes of music!. Read the Updates Page for information about all recent changes and additions.
Update to the Demo Scene Reference Manual. Current version is now 4.07. Since the last update many changes have taken place, including more modules listed, corrections to demo entries and demo additions.
The Formats Page has recently had an update with some author email address additions and a discussion with Branko Mikic about the history of Synthesis, InStereo and Sonic Arranger. For more details you can read the changelog.txt.
Moved Yon's Intro Logo to the Intro Logo Gallery.
|07-Nov-01:||Another update at the UnExoticA Game Music area. You can see the changes in detail on the UnExoticA Updates Page.|
In the last hours I have received a few fantastic logos for the ExoticA Intro Page, and after a few comments from the contributors,
I have decided the best thing to do is to hold a little competition! It's a quick fire compo, so you will not get much time.
Those who wish to enter can submit their logo to me at buzz[at]exotica.org.uk. Last date for entries will be in just 1 week from today - thats the 13th (Lucky for some) of November!
Entries should all fit nicely on the Intro Page, being no more than 600 pixels wide and supplied in lossless PNG format. The logos will be judged by the veteran of all ExoticA logo's XtC (However, should he decide to contribute a logo himself I will choose another person). It's not well organised, the rules are not strict, it's basically for fun! But, there is a prize!.
The prize is (Wait for it!). A custom! ExoticA T-shirt, displaying the ExoticA logo on the front in the Ocean Style (See the Intro Logo Gallery). Not only this, but the back of the T-shirt is signed by none other than Jeff Minter, Jason Page and Richard Joseph!.
It's not a big prize, but instead of keeping it for myself, I would rather give it to the people who have inspired me to work on this site!.
|26-Oct-01:||Since the release of UnExoticA a few days ago the archive has had 77 new game music rips added, bringing the total to 692! Huge thanks to XtC for all his hard work. Details about the new additions and changes can be found on the Updates area of UnExoticA.|
Big News: The new music area is now online!
The definitive Amiga Game Music collection.
This section provides complete unmodified rips with full credits for all Amiga game soundtracks regardless of format. Unlike other collections available elsewhere on the internet, UnExoticA's archive hasn't been defaced with rip credits, which often replace comments left by the original composer.
Huge thanks to all the people who have worked hard to make this section. Full credits for the area can be read on its Main Page. At the time of writing the area contains 3440 files packed into 615 archives. That's 269 different composers! Uncompressed there is currently 212 Megabytes of music!
Updated ExoticA's mirror of the High Voltage SID Collection to version 4.3.
The collection now contains 16,986 C64 tunes.
ExoticA offers the music individually via a simple to use HTML Interface or you can download them all in one large GZIP'd TAR Archive - HVSC.tar.gz. To see whats new you can check out the e-mail announcement text - update28.txt. For more in depth changes, you can refer to the update logs in the DOCUMENTS/ Directory.
A fab new logo can now be found on the Intro Page of ExoticA. It was made by Yon/IRIS and is a very different style from other logos we have had previously. Huge thanks to Yon for taking the time to make this image and I hope you all enjoy it. If any other artists out there would like to have their work on the front page then please Mail Me for information.
