aBOUT fORNDATA

Forndata is an old school copy/demoparty that was first held in june 2020. The vision is clear - keeping it old school and cool like it's 1992. We host parties right in the middle of the World Heritage town of Visby. We also ran a X-mas event in 2o2o. The picture below shows our party venue.

Venue


Our events focus on computers from the 80's and 90's. We have a range of systems available like Commodore 64/128, most Amiga models, PET, Spectrum, Lambda etc. We always prefer original hardware.

rESULTS fROM cOMPOS oN fORNDATA x-MAS 2o2o

fORNDATA x-MAS 2o2o featured 26 compo entries and three out-of-compo releases. The results can be found here. All compo entries can be downloaded here.

liNKS aND iNFO

Right now obviously the ongoing covid-19 pandemic makes it really hard to plan for events also in 2o21. We will return with more info on wether fORNDATA sUMMER 2o21 will be a physical event or not, but it will without doubt also be a streamed one no matter what.

You can join us on our Twitch livestream at https://www.twitch.tv/forndata from 17:00 (GMT+1) on saturday the 5:th of december.

We will also host a Discord hangout during the entire event that you can join and socialize with other sceners. Link to be distributed at a later stage.



cOMPO iNFORMATION

We will run compos in the categories and with the hardware mentioned below.

We'll always try to find the original hardware and sound chip that the entries were intended for, but there will always be a limitation within what we can find. If you're planning for a more obscure release please contact us beforehand.

For the moment we have access to: Lambda 8300 + colour and 16kb modules, ZX Spectrum, Dragon 32, SVI328 and of course C64/C128 and various Amiga models.

mUSIC cOMPO

A composition made for a retro computer that has not before been published for public listening.

We accept entries for the following sound chips: Commodore VIC, SID, PAULA and also systems listed above.
Compo machines: Amiga 1200/030/50 with 8MB RAM. C64 with SidFX (6581R4 and 8580R5). Specify CLEARLY which chip you want to use. Other systems - read above or contact us beforehand.

pICTURE cOMPO

An original creation made for this occasion and not before released. Pixel-art, raytracing, PETSCII, ASCII or any other means of creation is accepted. Use your creativity!
Compo machines: Amiga 1200/030/50 with 8MB RAM. C64. Other systems - read above or contact us.

dEMO cOMPO

A demo for any of the above mentioned systems that has not been released to the public before. For Amiga the following compo machines will be used for displaying the demo:
OCS: original A500 with 512+512kb memory
AGA: A1200 with Apollo 1230 Turbo LC equiped with 8 MB of fast memory
We believe there are better places to release your 68060 mega demo that you have been working on for ages and even though we have the hardware suited for it we want you to work with a more limited palette for this occasion.

For C64 the following compo machine will be used: C64 with SidFX (6581R4 and 8580R5), Ultimate II+. Specify CLEARLY which chip you want to use.

All entries can be left as an executable file / disk or open source code like AMOS, Blitz Basic for Amiga or virtually any Basic dialect for C64 or other 8-bit computers.

rEMOTE eNTRIES

Any remote entries are welcome and the event and compos will be streamed.

Executable entries are uploaded to http://party.forndata.org before friday, june the 4:th at 23:59. If you have obscure hardware please check beforehand that we can make it with tight deadline.

Code listings for 8-bit hardware must be available by e-mail (compos@forndata.org) to us no later than two weeks before the event to give us a chance of entering and trying them beforehand.
