My Demo DVD IDea 2

Right as you all know by now I am creating a Demo/Intro DVD of Amiga stuff.. and thru some persevering the awesome Toni Wilen helping fix some AVI Output bugs in WinUAE etc.. this realisation is coming to fruition

Anyway my brain has been ticking overtime, and this is directly aimed at RCK and the other HOL guys...

Basically I have been thinking of adding info for each demo/game intro etc.. nd for games I thought about adding some elements from HOL.. now abviously I am not gonna add anyhting w/out permission and also I will credit ALL HOL contributers within the DVD itself

For each game intro when the user selets the intro it goes to another page which gives the option to view Box covers and some basic info on the game and the developers/publishers.. now I know 99% of this is freely obtainable, and HOL doesn't own the copyright.. but what I want to use from HOL (besides the info) are the box/disk scans etc...

So basically I am hoping to make a mini Amiga HOL encyclopedia

What do ya's think?

Oh and because of the size of some of the stuff (Desert Dreams was a whopping 11gb+ uncompressed, 250Mb compressed) it looks like being a multi-dvd release

Yeah, Desert Dreams! Sounds great! Wouldn't it be wonderful if you could get interviews and profiles on some of the sceners who created the demos? A quick profile of the group would be cool too. I know there are sceners on here, maybe they could get in contact with these guys. It dosen't have to be anything long (who wants to read a lot of text on a TV) but any extra bits of info would make the DVD collections even more special and fun.

I still need to buy a DVD drive for my computer.

Kefrens members

Hi,

If you are interested I had recent e-mail contact with the following Kefrens members :
Laxity (Anders Emil Hansen)
Airwalk (Jesper Knudsen)
Hawkeye (Jacob Blichfeldt)

To preserve their privacy, I will not give their E-mail on this forum, but I can forward your messages to them.

None of them was able to remember how to get to second hidden part of Desert Dream though
Any help about this is still welcome

As far as copyright, you may not have to worry about it. Unless you want to reproduce something in its entirety (like, say, a game manual) you can use images and things under "fair use" for review purposes (among other things). I'd imagine box/manual cover scans would fall into that. (Reproducing an entire intro.. May be a tougher call, though, even then you're not reproducing the game, so I bet even that would be okay..) (Disclaimer: I'm not a lawyer.)

And to toss out an idea, perhaps demos could have an info page too? Not just credits, but, if possible, the competition it was released at, where it might have ranked in some top-tens, etc.. (I have a soft spot for compos.. Never could go, being in the US, but I'd look forward to them for the great demo releases..)

Perhaps you should check the date of the original post, and then look in this sub-forum.
