What is Onefile Demo, what is Graphics...

I recently started to go through a lot of art on here to put on my SD card for enjoyment on real hardware purposes.

Then I came across Industrial Dawn which is just a picture with music. I don't see anything else going on. (That said, it is really nice, both music and pic).

It is entered as One-File Demo, while a lot of pictures with music (could link a whole bunch by Mermaid for example, but also loads others), which are just entered as Graphics.

I guess there is no super easy way to draw a line here. Any thoughts?

IMO, demo would include at least some kind of effect, or a scroller maybe. But then people had a discussion about this when I released my Headache pic in the gfx compo at X'10.

@Groepaz, i always thought a Dentro was a mini demo/intro that's wasn't big enough to be classed as a full demo.

does not compute. those "dentros" are typically bigger than regular onefile demos (they typically have more than one part)

I also thought dentro was what Fatfrost said. Let's keep that weird definition out of this discussion then. It's not like we lack input right now ;)

A bunch of scientists discussing c64 scene db classifications. This discussion will never end, because nobody wants to update those release types manually once the definition is settled. You've created a monster, dr. Perffenstein!

Dentro and trackmo are actually equally cool marketing terms.

Quoting Groepaz
the original meaning of "dentro" is like "preview for a demo that is yet to come"

I have not heard of it used on c64.. not that I can remember. I first recall seeing 'dentro' used on the Amiga.. and even then I couldn't make much sense of the term.

yeah its an amiga term that for some reason some people transferred to the c64 (where it doesnt make a lot of sense at all). the same can be applied to "intro" for "small demo". those are originally little demos that introduce an amiga bbs.

just delete those terms from c64 context, problem solved :)

The stupid term "dentro" was used in the Atari ST scene as well, and as I remember it it was used on demos that fell in between demo and intro, thus "dentro". *sigh*.

Fantastic, something did come from this thread ... delete dentro category and mark all of them one-file demo.
