Thanks, BTW any plan to improve the compo announcements? I think it was really tricky to know what entry/platform was currently beeing shown last year for non-polish speakers. You don't need to go full "video post-prod" like revision, but a simple monitor with someone typing what's going on would be nice...

@rmd: hello again :) we run everything from the real Atari HW, so it cannot be _that_ smooth ;) You know, changing machines, display modes etc. We will try to improve announcement even more. SV staff say both languages (polish & english), but anyway - thx for your suggestion, we will do our best, mate :)

That's why, if there would be for example a 2nd projector connected to a PC, which would display on the screen before and after each prod, what was the prod name and author, and number of the entry, it would help a lot (no need anymore to use ears :)))

@kezax: we will see what we can do :) it's a bit too late now, but I will talk to the guys from Compo Stuff to find a good solution.

@rmd: :D

Now, on a lighter note...

20kg (!) of "Silly Fudges" just landed, directly from Milanowek factory, whose sender and sponsor is Maly_Swd! Thanks a lot, Rafał! Candy wrappers designed by mOOnie/MSB.

And now look at these beautiful pearls! Everyone who submits an entry in the Atari Jaguar Game or Demo category at Silly Venture 2k19, will be in the running for one of two LED lit swanky carts which come with the "Superfly DX" game! And as well as the carts, the sponsor of these prizes also gave us two mouse adapters for this console (because there are some new Jaguar games coming up, ported from the ST, and they require them). Matt, thank you so much once again, on behalf of all SV visitors!

@swapd0: from Matt Buchanan-Smith.

After a hard fight for "Silly Energy Drinks" this year we succeeded! Thanks to help from Adam Kłobukowski (known as AdamK), I managed to cooperate with INTEL, who agreed to support us in this matter :) Drinks are already in production!

As with previous years, it will be given to every visitor for free!

Santa Claus in da House, or... RJ1307 strikes back! Large amounts of prizes, which our friend Rafal overwhelms us with, has started to build up :) What has landed this time in the prize pool?

We have 8 pcs. of the "Lynx Quest" game by the "New Generation" group for the Atari Lynx, who won 1st place in "Atari Gamer Programming Competition" on the 30th anniversary of this console.

Guess what? Well, yeah... we have another prize sponsor! ;) This time it's a team from RETROHAX, which adds something to the pool for Atari Falcon fans - small external device (3 pcs.) allowing easy DSP clock switching :) (testing was done with the software like: FalcAmp, Cubase Audio, Zero-X, ANIplayer, CD Writer, Studio SON or Audio Tracker).

Here is the party-place plan (+reservations). VIP option (1 table = 2 chairs - red color). Yellow color - STANDARD option (1 table = 3 chairs). This year we will have much more extra tables and chairs than in 2018 :) So, don't worry :)

Well, WE HAVE IT! :) We've just received a second entry for Atari Portfolio, which means that the first DEMO COMPO in the history of this platform (not only on SV) is becoming a fact!

Image

If anyone is ready to submit another entry - go ahead! But let us know until Monday! (So we will think about prizes).

Cool, eh? :) Well, not really :) In fact, such a provision already exists in the SV2k19 compo rules. We won't reject any entry submitted just before the compo, but any potential risk of failure in presenting it lies with the author of the work. Please keep this in mind. We are unable to check it reliably in such a short time.

MSX/GFX & WILD Compo is planned for friday 6th December at 09:00pm, while INTRO/DEMO & GAME Compo is planned for saturday 7th December at 05:00pm.

We wish You good luck!
