Rather a date of the "leak".

Very good, I'm glad I've checked and you asked him. So we can even set an exact day of "release" even if they kept it secret until recent times.

The.Fox answered me: 1992 it is. Hacked together in this state at the Light-Phenomena party 1992.

The other option is that each part was actually made in different times, but what counts is the last date when all parts were put together.

I'll ask The.Fox, damn it. Easiest way.

You are probably right with 1990-92. They mention "Bålsta party" in the same sentence, which could have been the one in November 1989. I'll move the release year to 1992, sounds more correct.

So it was somewhere, good it has been found. Anyway I'm a bit skeptlical about the 1989 as date. Most likely made, completed and packed together in 1990 or later,
- Zipper v5.0/Chromizer wasn't a thing before 1990
- "it was coded back in the good old eighties" you don't say that if you're STILL in the eighties, but only some time later, hence at least 1990 =)
- "were now at the "phenomena+light" party"
I can only find one, and it was 1992: Light + Phenomena Easter Party 1992
but there were prolly more where there were no c64 release or simply not documented at csdb.
For now let's believe it, and I'll redate the Matrix' tunes accordingly.

This one was compiled back in the days. A later released version appeared on Datastorm 2013: Dead Zone. This one seems to bug less, though. It might not have been "released", but was shared on disk, obviously.
