Boing Ball AnimationNews

02-Feb-03: First of all, I must apologise for the lack of updates to this news page for the last 4 months. I have been extremely busy with my work, and took a much needed holiday (to Poland!) for a month. There has however been various changes and updates around the site.

Since the last update there has been 2 updates to the High Voltage SID Collection. These latest updates bring it to version 5.2. The collection now contains 20,325 C64 tunes.
ExoticA's mirror of this collection offers the music individually via a simple to use HTML Interface or you can download the entire collection in one large GZIP'd TAR Archive - HVSC.tar.gz. To see whats new please check out the the e-mail announcement texts - update33.txt and update34.txt. For more in depth changes, you can refer to the update logs in the DOCUMENTS/ Directory.

Also, since the last news, there has been 10 updates to the UnExoticA game music collection (Including a large update by XtC today). This brings the archive to 6495 files packed into 1272 archives. Thats over 357 megabytes of music! For details of what has changed please read the Updates Page. A big thanks to XtC for his hard work maintaining this area, and to all the other contributors. There is a new music section coming to ExoticA soon. It will be the UnExoticA for demo music. Watch this space for more information.

Menace/Spaceballs released a new version of his excellent Scenery demo guide (C64 and Amiga editions have been updated) . Version 1.41 (February 2003 release) can now be downloaded from the Scenery page. Scenery is a guide to groups, parties and releases on the c64/Amiga demoscene (pc is in development), and features what is likely the biggest, best and most comprehensive scene party index ever made public.

Sorry for the lack of updates on the Games Gallery page. I have hundreds of images waiting to be added, and hope to get them online soon.

Added last years Team17 Intro logo to the Intro Logo Gallery.
