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 latest demos are 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.

 


My studio in progress by Photon on 2009-05-15.

Some more enhancements to my apartment room slash to-be studio, see progress so far...

Bought some laminated, uh, chipboard today (the boards arcade cabs are made of, laminated to look like my desk). I cut them up and made proper shelves for my monitors.

Jean-Michel Jarre Concert in Gothenburg by Photon on 2009-05-13.

Yesterday was a busy day. Up at 6:45 to let Raffe the acoustic ceiling builder do his stuff, get my dog a furcut, and in the afternoon I drove to Gothenburg to see the Jean-Michel Jarre concert in Scandinavium.

In summary, 1) Both my old Canon A200 camera and the one in the Nokia E71 suck at total darkness with intense laser light shows. :) Well, that's a lie. They both just suck. And, 2) Jarre is still around and looking and sounding great, and 3) My ears survived without using the precautionary earplugs...

Nokia E71, speaker pedestals, studio acoustics by Photon on 2009-04-28.

Mini-Xmas eve :)

Got a Casio Futurist cheap from Singapore today, to make sure I don't lose track of time. Been without a watch since... forever. :P

Scoopex Cruncher V1.02+ by Photon on 2009-04-24.

A hopefully final release of my Scoopex cruncher. It was fun to optimize the decrunch routine :)

This is a cruncher for ... people like me, I guess. Those who have old sources that make full use of OCS. I.e., put stuff on 64K bounds to save some cyclesand thus needs, CRAVES absolute addressing like in the [good] old days ;) Or who don't want to spend time fixing them up to run on 'all' Amigas. Just remove any copper/interrupt save and restore code from your source, and check if d0 < start address. If so, allow exit, otherwise the system or decruncher has been trashed due to lack of memory.

Micro Studio by Photon on 2008-12-21.

I did a temporary (instrumental) micro studio setup when I bought proper studio monitors.

I bought a pair of decent studio monitors for checking my mixes. Since I haven't moved yet, I decided to hook up the basic stuff and get drivers working for everything.

A600 Portable - The Joytech 8" screen by Photon on 2008-10-21.

Not enjoying the prospect of having to buy gunk to erode the permanent cooling paste to find out how to hack my 13.3" Hong Kong screen, I bought a Joytech 8" for PS2.

The Joytech 8" LCD Digital Monitor for Playstation 2 was shipped with a silly manual, a remote, a car 12V adapter, and a very stylish looking bag for it all, which I will probably use for travel. :P

MonsterBobsby Photon on 2008-09-07.

I submitted MonsterBobs to Pouet yesterday. I'm away working a lot, and I needed to get it out of my system so I can code other Amiga stuff. :) This 4.5K intro is for Galahad's cracked and one-disked Snow Bros. The disk is done, maybe he will release it this month.

Another garishly colored OCS intro I guess but, well, there are already 524288 bland and uninspiring 'designer color' intros out there... ;) And if you know me, I have a thing for oldskool, so that includes its style, too.
