We were a bit lazy with updates during the summer, so we never got around to inform you about the new version of Cheesecutter (2.6.1 this time around) that Abaddon completed. Ruk/Booze Design ported it to Mac OS X so you can download that one as well if you’re a member of the Mac-posse.
ilesj and Icon collaborated on this awesome contribution for the CSDb Science Fiction Graphics Competition, entitled “Engage charmode, begin pursuit“. Be sure not to just look at this screenshot as there is more going on – go download and run on the real deal!
Today we give you the PC tool d64EIC, aka “d64 Errorinfo Combiner” from Sailor! Use this tool to combine several bad backups of one disk into a .d64 image with less (or in best case none) errors.
This is an essential tool for all of us who do a lot of backups of old floppies with many read-errors. d64EIC is here to save your day! Read the .nfo for instructions and more information!
Micro$oft+Evil US courtsystem has taken control of 22 different no-ip domains, supposedly because some hosts on these domains are spreading malware.
While we are all against malware, using that logic you could very well shut down hotmail and every PC running windows as well…
Sadly antidote.hopto.org is effected and can’t be reached at the moment. So, we added a new DNS pointer and Antidote can now be reached on antidote.triad.se as well. Should have been taken care of a long time ago, but sometimes those things aren’t fixed until shit hits the fan.
Hopefully the hopto.org domain will be back again, so those who don’t know the new adress find their way back to the BBS too.
There is an official statement at www.no-ip.com - a lot of people are affected (and rightfully pissed) at the moment.
Earlier today we released the new game Darkness from RGCD/Psytronik! Supplied by Twoflower, worked and trained by Sailor, map by Romppainen and additional help from Lynx and Taper. An extra share to Motion for fast spreading when time was of the essence!
The bonus-game Darkipede was handled as well and is included in the pack! Grab it from Antidote, other top boards or your local TRIAD dealer!
A two-year love affair has ended. TRIAD loves Ruk and Ruk loves TRIAD, but we can’t be together anymore.
Ruk joined the mummyship right after Datastorm 2012, doing his comeback to the scene. As the talented developer he is, it didn’t take long until Ruk was involved in more or less every new TRIAD production. He became The Architect of TRIAD. Directly responsible for our pinnacle demos Revolved and Continuum, in which he worked closely with Dane for the soundtrack. Their successful collaboration ultimately led to Ruk ending our love affair for the guys in Booze Design. “It was an offer I couldn’t refuse”.
Although we were dejected by the fact that he had to leave us, there were no hard feelings. Ruk has been a great inspiration to us and he is without a doubt one of the most important members in the TRIAD history. We wish him good luck on his Booze adventure!
In 2048, the dyscalculia in the world rises four hundred percent. The once great university of Umea becomes the one maximum security prison for the mathematically impaired.
A fifty-foot containment wall is erected along the shoreline of the Nydala lake, across the Ume River, and up along the Vasterbotten museum.
It completely surrounds campus Umea. All bridges and waterways are mined.
The Ume Police Force, like an army, is encamped around the campus. There are no guards inside the prison, only prisoners and the worlds they have made. The rules are simple: once you go in, you don’t come out – unless you learn basic arithmetic.
Today TRIAD provide you with 2048 – an essential game for those inmates wanting to leave their prison behind. Music by Ne7, graphics by ilesj, font by Tao! Conversion, code, training, brand new crackintro and all the rest by Ruk!
Play it. We guarantee you will love this!
Some membership shuffles have occured lately. First, Malmix and Pezac decided to leave TRIAD because of too little motivation as well as lack of time to commit to the c64 scene at this point in time. Eventhough output was low during their stay with us, we will miss these jolly lads and wish them all the best in the future. Hopefully they will find that spark somewhere in the future and do something on our beloved 8-bitter again.
Then we gained Motion, former member of Hitmen and Chromance, who will write for our diskmagazine Attitude as well as support and represent TRIAD on the boards! Motion joined right after Datastorm 2014, after discussing the matter with the rest of us at the party. Welcome aboard the mummyship!
We released a quickie before the weekend was over, so go grab Kur pelite tu tuceji - a small but cute game featuring a mouse and shitloads of angry bats. Located by Ruk and trained by Lynx. Supposedly the game was named after a Latvian folksong featuring a little rodent.
Tip: Use RUN/STOP to restart the game.
Little more than a week ago Datastorm 2014 was held in Gothenburg. This time, TRIAD was represented by iopop, Ruk, Ca$h, Taper, bepp, Itch, Malmix and ne7.
Our demo CONTINUUM scored second place in the C64 demo competition, in fierce competition with some of the finest groups on the scene!
On the Datastorm spread disk you will find not only CONTINUUM but also the standalone 2×3 font Modicum by Twoflower and the Tentacule picture by Vent, both included in the demo as well. In addition, find the tune Truckstop Alaska by ne7 and the picture Spacefacelift by Malmix, who both competed in the compos.
Thanks to the organizers for throwing yet another successful party!
