Meh, not cool. But necessary I guess due to the circumstances..
:-( Read it this afternoon. Sad but understandable. And I was so looking forward to 4 days of fulltime CPC crazyness ..
NOOOOO!!! I hope I can cancel my train, but I bet I won't be able to cancel the hotel. Great stuff.
Too bad, I really wanted to see you guys!!
No real Revision this year, but instead of it, a live Revision! There will be a stream, competitions with remote entries, live seminars and maybe concerts?
To support the organizers, you can buy a ticket (20€) to vote and contribute: https://2020.revision-party.net/tickets
There will be some CPC prods this year, so don't miss it! It would be cool to all come together on Discord this week to celebrate this event!
Cool thing! I guess I'll buy the regular ticket (includes t-shirt) to support them folks. Discord sounds great, will you provide a link?
@BSC: you should ask an invitation link to AsT or Barjack who manage this Discord channel.
Oh, is the Discord the same as Impact?
I have not asked for a refund of the ticket because I believe they'll need this money to support the costs, so I got this Revision online ticket. I don't know if I'm going to be a "coach scener" all 3 days though, but I can try :).
@BSC : Here is the link available 24h only.

To have a more real Revision experience @home, don't forget to record and play snoring sounds...
So, competition deadlines are closing in.. I assume the "standard media image file" they refer to in the competition rules resolves to DSK for CPC stuff. They also mention that the in-house platforms are C64, Amiga, VIC-20, Plus/4, Atari 8-bit, Atari VCS, Atari ST(E), ZX Spectrum. Seriously, no CPC? I can't believe that they still don't own one. Long story short: Did you guys provide a DSK or a video in the past?
Last years, we brought a CPC keyboard and some cables to connect it to their recording system. So we were watching it one time on the real CPC with them, and then watching the recorded video with them to check that everything is ok. So they don't bring CPC at Revision, I guess.
This year, the best way to send your production, I think, is to send a DSK and a clean video (it save time for them).
Happy to know that 2020 will we the year of the official BSC come back on our screen!! My ears are ready.
[x] Prod ready
[x] Ticket received
And yay for BSC's comeback!!
@toms and @bsc: my monitor just died few minutes ago... I won't be able to look at your prods before ages
@krusty: But you can watch them online on the Revision stream!
@targhan: Although I bought a ticket to support the event; I doubt I'll be able to watch the stream properly. My internet connection is quite crappy.
@krusty: your CTM died because you use too many advanced hardware tricks in your incoming demo??
@toms Nope; the penultimate use was my daughter who typed 'prout xylophone' ...
Probably too much scaring for the cpc
