Release id #11610 : Altered States 50%

Actually, can someone pinpoint the time when this was ACTUALLY released? Kresh?
/me thinking beginning of 1998?
I was thinking about this recently and maybe it would be a good idea, due to complicated circumstances around it, to change the release date to the real one, 1998, but keeping the release event to the party in 1994.
I think it would nicely visualize the complicated time-story of this wonderful demo.

What? No, it's either released at the party in 1994 or not.
If it's not released there, the year must be changed and remove the link to the party. It can't be both things.
If the actual version shown at the party doesn't exist anymore (the only disk with it got burned and such shit) an empty entry for it linked to the party compo should be created explaining what happened to it, and the existing (final? later rebuild?) version should be unlinked to the party event, and at least a couple of comment cross linking the 2 entries will do the trick to find them in the database easily.
I just did that to Insomnia [party version] because that silly 1.1 entry which was released 13 months after the party was linked to X2001 for too many years for my taste. It can't be released at the party and at the same time 13 months later =)

Yes. 2011 - A Press Space Odyssey [party version] is a good example of how it should look. That is the unfinished party version, while the full version can be found here: 2011 - A Press Space Odyssey.

Historical revisionism must be vigorously condemned and opposed, even here on CSDb.

I was thinking that, just wanted to make sure everyone agrees :)
I'll fix it then.

The five parts probably surfaced as early as 94 as suggested (seems legit it was at a party and someone snitched or spread it) and the final demo (half demo) came 3 years later or 4 (makes sense).

Well spread, I bet it would be easy for some old mega-swapper to fill in on when and where. And yes, we all got those parts long before the demo was released and thought "wow, those Polish guys are just as wicked as the Hungarian ones"

Indeed, I have seen the demo during my mail-swap times as well - must have been 94 or 95, probably.
