This hungarian party is held on 24-26 oct. The good news is that non-assisting sceners can participate. I recommend the Retro Music compo. This will let you warm up before the International SID Compo at the bcnparty'11 later this month.
Great news for SID composers: This tool will let you rip (ahrem browse) any .sid file around, seperate the code from the data. Syntax: siddasm1 filename.sid
You'll get filename.cas, a simple text file containing 6510 ASM instruction and data for the sid file you disassembled. It couldn't be any easier! Available for ms-dos and linux (of course :) source included.
2 days ago Vice 1.13 was released. If you compose your SID-files in emu you can now enjoy the full, authentic SID sound. The win32 binaries now fully support HardSID (Catweasel is supported from version 1.12). Linux users should have a look as well. More info: www.hardsid.com
Adam Lorentzon has just released Sidplay2/w. The update concerns mainly playlist features and emulation: ? VIC emulation improved, adding cycle-stealing ? Support for BASIC tunes ? Real C64 environment improved ? It is now possible to change subtune in the playlist edit
for tunes with over 6 subtunes
I'm sorry about the flooding of C64 news, but I fear there will be more :)
