Me graduating college in 1990 Hello, I'm Photon of Scoopex. I've been a member of Scoopex Sweden since 1991 coming from Phenomena, but took a break from the demoscene between 1992 and 2005. So far, I've only made Amiga demos in assembler, since I believe the limits of the A500 1MB platform is the perfect challenge for any coder.  To find out what else I'm about, see my About Me blog post.

My first demos combing back were Blitter Sweet and Xmas Demo, both made in the xmas break 2006 and 2005. I'm webdeving now and have a fulltime job, but hope to find time to assemble my old Stunner sources and make a nice trackmo.

Right now, the focus is on organizing Scoopex and coding new releases.  

I'm born in 1971, weigh 80kg, and sometimes go teary-eyed dreaming of demos. I try to make as much time for some good introvert lock-me-in-a-closet coding Amiga as I can, but usually spend way too much time online. "I'm workin' on it." :P I hate forced activities and love doing stuff together (tm) as well as talking crap with friends.


ACA630 review - A600 Portable II by Photon on 2011-01-03.

Nah, it's the same lovely party-Amiga... but it just got an overhaul and some extras.

I did a major cleanup of the insides... the big change was removing the switched 12V car-adapter to the Joytech PS2 LCD screen, and instead using a 7.5V, 3A PS1 external PSU. Yes, another hole in the case, but fortunately I had already drilled one for my Dummy Switch (tm).

Optimized Player 6.1 Playroutine by Photon on 2010-03-13.

It's 25% faster, and SetPosition works.

I was supposed to shove some democode in my demotemplate and got sidetracked with speed-optimizing the decrunch routine in The Player playroutine. Oh well.

It's -13 to -17 Celsius, even in South Sweden where I live.

Brr! But beautiful :) See pictures.

About Me by Photon on 2009-11-26.

I wrote this to say "what I'm about" and note down some thoughts I have about coding and demos.

Since being a scener often leads to meeting new people and communication on the Web often leaves out a lot, I wrote this so there'll be no doubt as to what I like and what I mean.

RigInfo by Photon on 2009-10-21.

As for most of my utilities, this one is also intended for use in the startup-sequence and thus is a CLI command. RigInfo outputs all relevant hardware information on the Amiga that runs it (except CPU MHz...)

If you plan to use the output of this app as input to your own app, strip the first two lines of text and parse the third line. If you wish no output (black screen until WB is loaded), redirect it to NIL: as usual.

Some photosby Photon on 2009-09-04.

A photo of me not feeling so good on the bus back from BP09, and some Amiga mod photos :)

A photo of me not feeling so good on the bus back from BP09, a photo of how I repaired my Amiga 600 keyboard cable, and a photo of CUTTING A HOLE in my A1200, used mainly for WHDload but also for checking my demos and also AGA demos.
