TFS: Could you introduce yourself?
Kelly.X: Coder, and cracker ( a long time ago :))
were your first contacts with data processing? With the Atari
In my family, there was a lot of data processing specialists.
I mean, the early ones, those which worked with BULLS DPS, punch
cards and so on. Thus like Obelix, I fell inside data processing
I started to use at the beginning some Apple II, Alice 90, Texas
TI99/Â and other Thomson To7/Mo5.But the majority of my
uncles used of Apple.I was always impressed by the beauty, the
design and also Apple technology.
It is for that that I went one day to buy Apple IIGS
the expensive price quickly did me stop.
I naturally turned to the "copy", Jackintosh.
When did you join your first group?
I programmed for a long time on microcomputer in Basic. Naturally
on ST I had started with St Basic (beuuuarg)
Then with the meeting of Shiryu, and especially after the vision
of the Union Demo, i started to code seriously
Of which groups were you member during all these years? Which
were your pseudos?
Coder of ST Knights, then of Fuzion, then of Hemoroids with a
new pseudonym : Jace
When did you start to code for FUZION? And Why?
As soon as I started to really code, I stopped swapping :)
was your best memories? Your worse one?
Atmosphere of the time : data processing was not too commercial
yet, we had fabulous machines which still impressed
summ up : it was pure pleasure.
My worst memory? To be so far away from big cities, and can't
go to Coding Party: (((
are according to you the best games taken out on ST? The worst?
2, Defender of the crown (ahhhhh princesses :) ),Winter games,
Turrican.. the list is long
The worst?I do not remember it more
They were to be really
Which are the best demos released on ST according to you? The
Incontestably the Union Demo and the Cuddly Demo. These two demos
were sources of inspiration for many among us.
ZUUL lamers with their ripped code :(
Do you think that the cracking scene killed the ATARI ST?
On the contrary: we bought Atari ST because we know we could copy
games. As now a PC is rather bought than a Mac because we all
know somebody who has software to share.
When did you left FUZION? Why?
left Fuzion in 1992.I had started to work on a megademo. There
was some coders in the group so we thought we ( the Reunion Isle
members ) could make a rather good demo. But i quickly realized
that the only ones which wanted to code a megademo was us. The
others was more interested by cracking games. In consequence the
megademo "NRJ for You "2 remained a soundemo and the
effects are used partly in HMD demos.
Did you keep contact with the other group members or with the
ST scene? Do you have some projects involving them?
I'm in touch only with the members of the Reunion Island part.
computer do you own at present?
I have a computer museum (Atari, Amiga, Next, C64, APPLE II
but my principal machine is small Apple Ibook with MacOS X.I continue
to sometime code on ST (recently the intro of Alive7) and I wrote
some php for the fun.
Do you Have projects?
We will try to finish the Resurrection of ST Knights:)))
do you think of the current Atari scene?
I am very happy of knowing that much among us did not forget ST
and remains still active.I find sad that many does not continue
to produce on ST (isn't it Kheops?).
What do you think of the cracking scene of the PC?
I do not know. Not using my PC to play, I do not know if it is
as present, recognized and useful as our time.
What do you think of the evolution of data processing today?
Pfff it is too simple
Protections are non-existent
is commercial stuff:)
