Time to revive mail swapping <3

I'm looking forward to watch the main demo. Send my stamps back. ;)

(faked) stamps back, please!

Very nice intro!
This is the moment when regret I replaced my df0 for a gotek ;)

Please include a note if you want your stamps back. We didn't mention them because a package of two disks, cushioning, stickers is exactly 50 grams - we don't know yet if it gets through as a "letter" for €1,70 worldwide if we also include your stamps. Envelope, padding, stickers, stamps, everything adds a few grams. Also send in as many disks as you like and a note what to do with them. For example, we can use your extra disks as credit for future releases of ours. I'm willing to part with about 20 of my mint DD disks for the first senders, but please include a DD disk to be on the safe side. A fresh disk with a Hologon sticker should also make a great collector's item. (Ofcoz we'd appreciate it even more if the disk is also being used for running the demo.) Disks will be checked thoroughly: Written and doubly verified on a good drive, and the demo tested once again on a not so great drive.

Lovely concept. Approved on a real A500, from a mint DD disk that will be on its way to you shortly.

People who made the mistake of replacing all their internal disk drives with USB are in our hearts. That's why the demo also runs from external drives. This requires Kickstart >=37 (for a bootmenu).

Nice way to celebrate a release, I love the idea. Got my disk - Hologon is massive :)
rulez added on the 2020-12-30 09:42:08 by tin tin
very cool..
question though: in the demo "a dd disk" is mentioned, and in the comments bifat writes "two disks" when talking about the letter, etc.. so is it on one or two disks?

thanks!
rulez added on the 2020-12-30 19:56:38 by cslag cslag
One disk. I was thinking about you sending in two disks and getting it twice, once as a backup or so.
Some other remarks: 1. Please write down your scene handle somewhere. 2. The number in the address is 10247, not 70247. 3. Privacy: I've heard of the suspicion that this would be a plot to harvest addresses - leave me a message to delete your data if you must! :-)
added on the 2020-12-30 21:10:39 by bifat bifat
awesome, thanks! I was asking b/c I found exactly one DD disk, hehe
added on the 2020-12-30 21:17:42 by cslag cslag

We're certainly in no hurry to upload it somewhere as long as there's interest in our disk copies. :) Thank you all for nice letters and cards! Work on the next demo has commenced.

Don't worry, there are currently no plans of an online premiere. We've stocked up supplies of new DD disks, and used disks keep rolling in.

okay

Nice intro and nice idea :D

I will send disc. How do I pay for shipment back to me?
rulez added on the 2021-01-06 00:02:28 by nikosidis nikosidis
No need to pay for shipment. It may take a while, but it's totally affordable. Even sending in a disk is more symbolic, so far.
added on the 2021-01-06 00:11:45 by bifat bifat
Got mine today :)

The old demo vibe is back. Watch this trackmo on real hardware with your Amiga connected to a stereo. WOW! Awesome, these mirror effects on the filled vectors' surfaces. The flow and the desin are great. Congratulations. I bow my head for this masterpiece.

Ah, lovely reminder of the piles of envelopes one used to send out once or twice or week back in '94. And the sound of the envelopes dropping through the mail gap in the front door, perhaps waking me up on a saturday. So lovely. Looking forward to receiving it! :)

Fresh disks are soon exhausted. We're entering a new phase: You can write to bifat ët neoscientists piste org if you want to receive our demo on an used disk. You can still send a real letter with real disks to get a new disk and the extra sticker. Additional disks will be registered for future productions. :-)

Nice idea. I wonder who's getting the credits for uploading the release to a BBS first ;-)

NP, send me an E-Mail with your address. it's always the same price, no difference between Austria and New Zealand. Of course it would be nice if you had an Amiga and disk drive in Shanghai. It's meant for watching :)

Thanks for nice feedback, letters, cards, and stamps. Please let me know if you suspect that your package is overdue. I haven't heard of any bad disks yet, but if you recevied a faulty disk, do not wait for an online release - ask for a replacement! Please do not send money for petty costs like postage.

Fetch and unpack it, fire it up, come alive
Put the disk in the drive

Inhale, exhale
Just got a disk in the mail

Thumb is for this release - nice intro with good music. :)

Finally, someone cracked it!!! :D and the DEmo this is the iNTRO of is now spread online.

But we were supposed to swap the disk to friends! Slow-in-the-head test failed by me at least ;)

So Hologon is finally online (I think out of respect we waited for the online share to vote at least I did), and so now there's less than 24h to give it a Meteorik Rise I fear... :'(

@Bifat: Got it today, I am so happy! Thanks for all the effort and the extra disk.
By the way, Hologon did not run well on my particular setup, is there anywhere I can report some bugs,, if you even care? Let me know if so. Kind of can't send you a postcard with it ;)
added on the 2021-02-25 01:39:02 by Akira^G*P Akira^G*P
@Akira: I'm interested, please mail to bifat et neoscientists piste org. Maybe it's helpful for future productions. We tested on so many configurations, I am tired. We did not plan for updates or fixes.

Amazing release!
@bifat: is it still possible at the time to get a physical copy?
added on the 2021-02-26 20:08:46 by Galndarth Galndarth
Yes of course! Just because some specialist uploads the demo to the internet doesn't mean the campaign was terminated. :-)

Ok thanks :) all I have to do is send you a disk or two at the address above is that right?
added on the 2021-02-26 22:43:28 by Galndarth Galndarth
Send a letter or package with zero to n disks, or an E-Mail with your address. Extra disks will be registered for future mail sendings. We are in no short supply anymore, we have secured thousands of disks for future campaigns. You do not have to send disks, or just disks. I have also received stickers, postcards, letters, music CD, exclusive stamps from Finland with homoerotic motives, ... great fun!
added on the 2021-02-27 06:22:40 by bifat bifat
