Nectarine Demoscene Radio
is back online!

(for those who dont know) they play music made by sceners from C64, Amiga, PC, etcetc.

Nectarine Demoscene Radio

it's quite nice listening, voting and commenting to tunes people made, or download the full demos that feature the tracks.

this was a historical demo website, and I knew well the creator.

Is anyone else addicted to Nectarine Scene Radio... or is it just me? :spin

It's my favorite!

skyldig 18 June 2018 10:40

But now it seems to be gone forever :( Damn, my favorite. Listen to it almost every day at work. Sad. What shall I do now? Fortunately Battlenet still runs the old classic player ( http://classic.battle.net/window.shtml ) but you get bored pretty quick with that one since it is only based on Blizzard classic games. Nectarine demoscene radio had so much more variation.

It's been fun while it lasted. Now give it a rest.

Don't mail me."

Try BitJam on bitfellas.org, it's sort of like Nectarine.

WTF, is Arab pulling the plug or prank hacker? Who is "me" in the context of "Don't mail me" at https://www.scenemusic.net/ ?


Yes, seems to be Arab doing this:


If a pet is irreparably sick you put it to sleep.

For now this will be the only comment on why Nectarine has been put down.

If there is a way to go forward time will tell.


P.S. This is and will be my one and only comment about current state of things.

P.S.2. Motherf...! No sorry, can't leave it like that!!!

It's effing disrespectful to suggest i've taken money to run the site (apart from some short time - like 3-4 months - to cover for the server operating costs - but then it was explicitly stated). This was an open beer fund to tip based on your liking. Nobody forced anyone - stop suggesting otherwise. I've been paying several years straight from my own pocket to cover the server costs. Suggesting otherwise is… i have no words. Shame on you.

Kind of sad thinking about all those who contributed to the site, eg. FishGuy876 and BombmanDK who coded the demovibes engine for the website, all the active musicians, and uploaders.

th4t1guy 18 June 2018 16:41

From reading the pouet thread, it seems like the problem was that songs could only be inactivated in the database and not completely deleted; probably would require some large code refactoring or reindexing to make that all work.
Also, add this to the fact that anyone with an account could upload any songs (commercial or otherwise), I think arab may just be trying to dodge a legal bullet.

Stream seems to be up https://nectarine.from-de.com/necta192
Site still down.

It now just states "the end".

Anyone got any contact details for Arab? I would like to discuss buying the nectarine site and associated resources and working on fixing any issues which lead to the site being taken down and any other user feedback.

Nectarine is back online at a new URL:

Retrofan 06 September 2018 00:46

Oh, this is wonderful :great https://scenestream.net/demovibes/streams/

I had to spend a lot of time to edit all of my docks (there are a lot) to delete Nectarine from my Radio Stations, a lot. But I will change them all again for the next AKReal update so it will work again :great

modrobert 06 September 2018 10:31

Great news indeed, thanks to everyone involved making it happen.

gregthecanuck 06 September 2018 12:30

Awesome work!

A1200 14 October 2018 10:22

This is truly excellent news. I wonder if the scrapes and lifting and shifting has any legal implications? From what I understand many people built Necta and even more people contributed so I assume Arab can't lawyer up?

Also a month or more in, is the new regime being loyal to the community or is it more of meet the new boss, same as the old boss?
