No More Demoparty in France ? No !

category: general [glöplog]
Ok, so, i'm looking on demoparty.net / pouet.net / scene.org and there's no more demoparty in France !!!

So, i can't admit that i'm living in the lamers country... too sad for me... perhaps i'm a fool...( i still have a working A1200)... I've organize the Slach (i've got scares on my bottom to prove it)... i've got no Money... Ok...So...

I'm trying to make it once again with the same team !!!!

LuCis MaGia Is back again to make the show in the same region, near Bordeaux !
We're actually collecting some funds to hire the place, and we've nearly finished the main organisation job...
So there is a little question less :


Perhaps it will not be called "Slach", but the organisation crew will be nearly the same ...
Two things will change : there will be an "on" and an "off" party, because some recruters will be present (15 game society for the moment), job center , conference, expo (the place will be split in two parts : classic demoparty for an half, expo and pro event for the other half). And we're organising the event in english for the sceners from everywhere, like at the numerica (and we've found some direct low cost fly from germany, uk ... And some big can of beer for some friends we've meet ;) ...

So please, show us your interest by sending some mail to : myke@formacd.com it will be really useful for moving some politics and bosses ass ...
Thanks by advance !!!!

If you've already gone to the slach party or speaking french, there is still some old archive here : http://wired.s6n.com/files/myke/

A last word (a little test... :) ) :
" A LA SLACH .....

the pro part is a good idea, specially with conferences and such, and that could bring youngsters interested in gamedev to the demoworld :)

Zest : Yep, we're trying to give a real chance for someone who would like to work in the gaming industrie, what he can make ...
In the old years, it was like that, recruters came to demoparty to find good talent... and today a bunch of bosses are saying to me that's harder to find good coders, graphist etc ...
So i've offered to them about participating at the event, and it rollllllll....
so it's seems to be in the good way...

Hi irokos... how are you since the main 2006 ?

sorry for my bad english... needing some practice ... be sure, i will not speak too much in the microphone during the party :) ....

the one flaw in your plan is that, at least over here, it seems that pretty much any scener who wants to work in gamedev already does. :)

yep that's a tad correct ;) but I'm not trying to talk only to old sceners, but also to the young guns who are following what is happening on the scene without going because they don't find a really good reason to...

I'm trying to give them the reason to come...

And i hope that the older one, will make the effort to, and give a hand to whom want to start ...

I've seen at the last breakpoint that the age level is growing up too, like we've already seen in france...

So we'll try... let's see what happening :) ...

myke: i was rather thinking of the other way around : advertise your party as a pro event in uni/schools and on the net, young people which are interesting in modding and gamedev may come, and they could at the same time have fun and participate at the demoparty.

Hello myke, and others of course :)

I'm interresting by a demoparty in France ( i know the MAIN ) because i will become a coder and i have some problems for approach the demoscene. ( For BreakPoint 2008 nobody answer to my thread on http://www.scene.org/showforum.php?forum=22&topic=214438 )

Me too, i am living in france and this country is very bad for the demoscene and maybe for go to BreakPoint 2008 too.

Since two years i am very interrested by the demoscene and the demo ( good work all sceners ; you are the best ). I will learn more in graphical programmation.

And maybe one day i will can integrate i game company

So i am very enthousiastic for your demoparty
I have completly no idea at the moment, to decide either I go or not to a demoparty is always a question I have to deal with everything around myself (girls, cats, job or bank)

Good idea though, never been to a Slash party and it always looked like a nice&fun party.

littlewhite, repeat your question here (use the breakpoint 2008 thread, for instance) and do it in english. people read the sceneorg forums quite little, and apparently people who speak french don't at all :)

i thought that it post only on the french part on scene.org forum because i ask for go at the breakpoint with me. but i will use your advice

Very interested, I intended to go to the last one but couldn't make it. You got a time in mind yet ?
Count me in. Well it may depend on when it's taking place but I'm definitely interested.
tom, you coming?
