Forndata is an old school copy/demoparty starting up in 2020. The vision is clear - keeping it old school
and cool like it's 1992. The venue is a unique medieval building with halls from the 13th century, right
in the middle of the World Heritage town of Visby - hence the name Forndata.
The event focuses on computers from the 80's and 90's. Present will be systems like Commodore 64/128, Amiga,
PET, Spectrum, Lambda etc. We always prefer original hardware.
cOVID-19 iNFO - uPDATE 2020-04-26
Due to the ongoing pandemic we have decided to go livestream only for fORNDATA 2o2o.
This is a sad decision but also quite expected due to the sad course this disease has taken. We do not wish to be
part of spreading further trouble in the world.
Upside is that now that you do not have to focus on travel arrangements there is more time to work that
release of yours for the compos! See next section for info.
We will run compos in the categories mentioned below. Depending on how many entries that we receieve
we might combine or change the sub-categories to make compos exciting and fair. For example all 8-bit
entries might be put up against each other.
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.
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.
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!
A demo for any of the above mentioned systems that has not been released to the public before. For Amiga
the following systems will be used for displaying the demo to keep the original feeling:
OCS: original A500 with 512+512kb memory
ECS: A600 with 4mb fast memory
AGA: A1200 with 4mb 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 hardware
palette for this occasion.
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.
Any remote entries are welcome and the event and compos will be streamed.
Executable entries are sent to email@example.com before saturday, june 6 at
16:00. 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 to us no later than monday, june 1 to give us a chance
of entering and trying them beforehand.
