Welcome to the official Attitude website - Europe's #1 C64 scene disk magazine
Scene News
by Cactus/Oxyron

I would never believe that another edition of my disk magazine will be released so quickly without any delay. As the publishing cycle of "Attitude" has been lost (we had always at least one-year delay), I wasn't able to collect as many interesting scene news as I did in the past. I hope you can forgive me a little bit shorter news chapter this time, not sorted with groupnames etc. One and half the month is not too much time in today's C-64 scene to be able to find as many happenings as in the past years. All the information included to this article come from the group's leaders, and so they are quite sure...

CACTUS/OXYRON

* As probably most of you know, I've joined OXYRON group and left SAMAR at the same time. "ATTITUDE" magazine is now released under Oxyron label.

Current memberstatus: Cactus, Fanta, Graham, RRR.

* "Filety on-line & 64NET", an Internet magazine by Apidya, got the new design recently. They're still searching for people interested in editing. Too bad it's Polish only.

* Rea left Apidya and he won't code a promised demo for them. Apidya is still searching for new members, contact Reiter (reiter.apd@interia.pl) if interested.

Current memberstatus: HCL, Jailbird.

* The second edition of German paper magazine "Lotek64" has been released by Lord Lotek.

* Here's a short information about recent happenings in a Turkish group BRONX...

"We (BRONX) don't have any news these days. Endo and I (Skate) are working on a telephony software project, Hydrogen is in the army. We are not going to release anything in 3-6 months at least. But maybe, if I could find some time to finish it, we can release Hydrogen's music collection. I've already finished the code, musics are ready as well, but I can't even find time to go home, no kidding... We are not dead, just busy and we'll be back as soon as we finish out current business projects.
