Event id #3144 : BCC Party #16

<Post edited by TheRyk on 16/2-2022 23:38>

Hey there, starved party people!

You've got that right, a REAL party is planned - in central Berlin/Germany, in Winter, in Pandemic...
What could possibly go wrong? =D

Much of the organisation will be different from other years, however.
We have found a new location in central Berlin (District "Mitte") which will be published after some more negotiations.
Much orga stuff (like selling drinks at fair prices) will be outsourced to the loacation management.
Further important changes:
- obligatory Registration to control whatever restrictions (see below)
- instead of "bring your own booze", buy it directly at the party place for a fair price and thus, help finance the location management
- NO sleeping at the party place possible, you're gonna need an apartment or sleep in your car

Conditions in Pandemic Times - Though Our Delorian is not working yet...
============================================================
So we can't foretell what international (important for our foreign guests, e.g. check travel warnings, quarantine rules etc.),
national, regional or local regulations there will be in late February.
Much is unknown, and thus, much information will remain vague, but here's some FAQ
-Will it will be possible to hold the event at all? We hope so!
-Will there be a maximum no. of participants limit? Extremely likely, only we can't tell if that will be 5,50,100....
-Will there be restrictions? YES. Definetely only fully vaccinated(!) people will be allowed, this might even be put stricter, i.e. last of minimum 2 vaccinations may not be older than 6 months, maybe even then you need a daily test.
So in German acronyms it will be either "1G" or "1G+".
-Will we have to wear facemasks inside? Our idea is, only in doorways and restrooms. Otherwise we don't see how
the booze aspect that we consider essential for partying is supposed to be performed and holding the real event wouldn't make much sense.
-What if shit hits the fan big time? We'll not promise anything. We will try(!) everything to avoid cancelling it altogether, a downgrade to "online only" party like last year on Saturday only would be our plan(!) B.


Booking hotels, train rides, flights etc. - some advice
============================================
1. WAIT some more weeks. Even in normal times, February ain't a month in which Berlin is overcrowded with tourists.
2. When the ship goes down, you'd better be ready, i.e. make sure to have the best cancellation options, even if these come at a higher price, believe me, some 10 or 20 bucks extra
is well-invested, whereas expired or no cancellation options can mean burn some 100 bucks for nothing (happened to me, when Bunker Party was cancelled last minute, so I know what I'm talking about...)

Competitions Rules & Stuff
=======================
Other Platforms
----------------------
This is an 8 bit only party, in case it goes online only, we might even make it C64 only again (as BCC#15).
So 16 bit stuff can only be shown(!) out of competition, and the authors have to bring all necessary hardware plus maybe a video file - just in case.
16 bit developers just consider picking another event for your release.

Other than C64 8 bit stuff will normally end in an "Other platforms/Mixed" Competition. I remember some C=16/+4 and C=128 releases.

The following categories are planned. However, especially when there is (more/less than) 3 entries in a category,
we reserve the right to merge or split subcategories.

PETSCII graphics
----------------------
No runtime VIC register hanky panky, feel free to use ECM or MC, however.

One-Screen pixelled graphics
-------------------------------
MultiColor or HiRes, Bitmap or Char mode, Interlacing, breaking the borders, Sprites, OSCAR, Splits... anything without scrolling goes!
No animations or multiscreen scrollers please, those would end in demos.

C64 Music
------------
Covers and remixes are allowed but must be labelled "Cover/Remix" and might end in a seperate compo if we've got more than 3 covers.
No time limit but please use common sense.
Specify 6581/8580 and playing time!

C64 One-filed/64k demo
-------------------------
Any demo that fits into one file.
Specify 6581/8580.

C64 Multi-filed demo
------------------------
Anything demo that loads while running, usually Trackmos nowadays or Mega Press Space stuff like in the 80s.

Mixed
-----------
Whatever C64 related stuff doesn't fit into any other category,
such as Music Collections, Games, BASIC demos, DirArt, Disk Cover/Sleeve Art, hardware eagles, You-name-it...

Deadline for all entries:[PETIns][/PETIns] EDIT Fri, 25th of Feb, 17:59:59 a.m. CET, get a votekey by mailing ryker[ÄT]freenet.de and upload them on https://party.c64clubberlin.de/

Attention! All entries must include executable .PRG files. If you need help doing that, please contact us early.

Communication
===============
First of all, you should be aware that we are going to keep you posted here if any more details are settled enough to publish. Besides this forum thread, you can also get in touch on facebook (our man hoeppie) or on IRC #c64clubberlin if you have urgent questions that remained unanswered so far. Krauts can also go on forum64.de.
But remember: Though there ain't no stupid questions and we're ready to talk about everything and consider suggestions, there's an exception, namely no Pandemic restrictions debate, neither here, nor elsewhere.

Stream?
========
Of course the focus is on the real party. But the plan is to stream the compos, anyway, i.e. Saturday evening/night - similar as we did at BCC#15 Online, no details as of yet, though, need to talk to Charlie and some other orgas first, but we will tell you what will be streamed when and where.


Cheers,
TheRyk for BCC Orga-Team

Yeah, some of you have already been very industrious, first entries even start to arrive 2 weeks before the deadline, wonderful!

Our main orga will powwow once more this weekend and announce further details on real vs online only on Monday.

Keep working on your releases, either way :)

Cheers

Hey guys,

sorry to let you wait for so long, but we literally tried everything till yesterday to find a solution for real party... but couldn't come up with anything that would have been legal in pandemic German February, made sense and been worth all the extra trouble it would currently mean for orga.

So it's online only ONCE(!) more.

Here's some info in addition/more detail than in BCC#16 Online Invitation

Stream
=========
On Saturday, 26th of Feb 2022, we'll be streaming on https://www.twitch.tv/functionparty
from 4 pm CET till around midnight. Thanks to Function Party Orga for borrowing their Twitch Channel again! <3
Rough Time Table is under construction...

Upping Competitions / Voting
==============================
Both voting and uploading is on
https://party.c64clubberlin.de/
For upping stuff, you need to register, for registration you need a voteky, get it by mailing to ryker[ÄT]freenet.de and telling me your Handle. If you need help, I love to be helpful, but it's rather foolproof, pretty similar to Votox (Burglar's X-Party Voting Engine which was also used for last Transmission).

Competitions / Categories / Rules / Deadlines
==============================================
Categories:
We're ready to stream and do voting for raistlin's Only Sprites Compo, see also https://csdb.dk/forums/?roomid=12&topicid=154611#154963
Not much else to add, only musicians, remember to put you stuff in remix/cover if it's not your own composition.
There were issues with Twitch last time because of this masterpiece Blau & Schlau ... Personally, I find it even more silly to freak out about it than to do such crap, but the channel ain't ours, it's Function Party Channel, and we don't want Function Team to get into trouble with Twitch because of stuff we're showing. So pretty please, no pronographic content/penises. We'd have to disqualify it. Boobs and dragons are classy and hence, should be okay, though, I guess :D
NEW Deadline for Only Sprites Compo 2022 is Sat 26th 11:59:59 a.m. CET
NEW Deadline for all other entries is Fri, 25th of Feb, 17:59:59 = 5:59 p.m. CET, that's +6 hours extra

Future
=========
Thanks to C*Base for all they've offered, it's just due to Pandemic, otherwise this would have worked like a charm and will in the future, hopefully. We consider doing a small mini real party (one night only) with C*Base Team at Jannowitzbrücke in Summer. Delaying the BCC#16 was an option, but we've been stubborn enough to reserve our tradtional last full Feb weekend and don't want to interfere with other scene party dates.

Bottom Line
=============
*sigh*
OK let's do this, guys, looking 4wd to your entries or votekey requests.
We're gonna do anything it takes to make this minimum as much fun as BCC#15.
At least Brainstorm and I (maybe also Hoeppie) will join Thunder and Charlie in their secret Streaming Lab in persona to reduce technical difficulties and create SOME kind of party atmosphere, maybe by some drunk sofa interlude trashtalk between compos :)

Cheers
Ryk

PS: If anything remained unclear, post here, PM me, mail me...
PPS: Krauts, I'm also gonna provide that info in German on forum64.de

Here's a first timetable which is very much UNDER CONSTRUCTION as we can't really foretell how many Megademos and Trackmos you will upload till deadline...

FRIDAY FEB 25th 2022
17:59:59 CET Deadline for all compos except Sprites Only
If you have trouble hitting the deadline, please contact me _early_ via ryker[ÄT]freenet.de and I see what I can do (but pretty please don't _start_ coding a trackmo _after_ the deadline...)
SATURDAY FEB 26th 2022
TIME TABLE (all time data = CET)
-----------
WARMING UP
===========
16:00 Chat on Twitch/Discord <- grab last minute votekeys on Discord
16:15 Demo-Show I Part 1/2 on Twitch [PETDel]/ Røly[/PETDel]
17:00 Official Opening Speech
17:10 Demo-Show I Part 2/2 on Twitch [PETDel]/ Røly[/PETDel]
17:45 Digital Talk #111 Teaser / Sneak Preview / Thunder
COMPETITIONS
=============
18:00 Sprites Only <- ATTENTION: will probably be shifted to later slot
18:30 Wild / Games        
19:00 C64 Graphics PETSCII
19:30 C64 Graphics (other than PETSCII)
20:00 C64 Music - Covers and Remixes

22:30 While-Voting-Party with DJ-Set by Røly
23:30 "Prize Giving" - no promises, either we will ship some small symbolic parcel again... or just fame...

Also I can already tell we might shift the slot "Only Sprites" (and also the deadline) some hours into the future to help competitors who relied on midnight deadline (<-which we really can't offer). I'm in touch with Raistlin and will talk the matter over at tonight's orga video meeting.

Cheers
Ryk

PS: Judging from last year's experience, this timetable will be updated minimum twice before the stream starts :)

Attention
============
The results will have to be double-checked as PETSCII results seem fishy...

Special thanks once more to Function Party for borrowing us their channel and of course to our man Charlie who managed all that streaming and provided us with wuhu
