Majic 12 will be remembered mainly for some half-decent demos, and for their diskmag "Top Secret". They also released several acclaimed PC demos, with the aid of their PC coder Maxwood. These demos also include graphics by Rack etc., so they're well worth checking out!
TV has been involved with a LOT of BBS'es (or just changed the name frequently, what do I know?). I have a listing for a 'DAMAGING EVIDENCE' board he cohosted with Revenger.
- Norwegian coder Flesh joined from New Wave around mid 92. The diskmag "Top Secret" was handed over to the Danish division, and new editor is TFG. A "Ray of Hope III" demo was planned (according to Balance's "Magbox #1" [07/92]), but never saw the light of day...
- The French section - a.o. Baby (Fabien Guerin, org music, 04/93) - was kicked mid 93. This probably also concerns Hexogen (code), Magellan (swap, 04/93), Mwaba (gfx, 04/93), Polaris (swap), Shean (gfx swap), Thanbatos (gfx) and Zuul (music). Danish editor TFG (91-04/93) left after finishing "Top Secret #15" [mid93]. Hungarian Zozo will probably be the new main editor.
- Suburban Base was founded 1994 by Swedish ex-members of Majic 12 (a.o. coder-musician Randall (old handle Zyx, 05/92-12/93) and Vision.
- Hungarian organizer, swapper and sysop Zozo (Kozak Zoltan, 'MYSTERIOUS ISLAND' reopened ROM3/'REJTELMES SZIGET', 02/91-04/93) left the scene.
- The Norwegian division was kicked, except for Dr.Bully, Heavy Mental and Vector. Musician Dr.Bully (04/93), the guy responsible for a.o. the soundtracks to the two "Ray of Hope" demos, left to join Cadaver (PRP4). Swapper Vector (04/93) was also later kicked, and I do not know what happened to H.M...
- Dali joined Static Bytes and changed his handle to Daae.
- Norwegian swapper and trader Razorblade (ex Interactive, new mid93) joined Balance.
- Danish swapper Nighthawk (91-04/93) joined Rebels sometime between 04/93 and 03/94. Rumours that he joined IRIS are false.
- Danish sysop Ramirez ('SUFFOCATION', ex Balance, 04/93) joined Fairlight.
- Danes Chorus (music), Sid (music) and Condor (swap, all ex Quartz) joined the new Razor 1911.
- Norwegian graphician Darkdude joined Shamrock.
- Danish swapper Zinko (ex Deadlock, 05/92-04/93) joined Kefrens.
- Hungarian superstar graphician Rack (02/91-04/93) joined Absolute! early 93.
- Guran joined Shining.
- Norwegian coder and graphician Flesh (ex New Wave, new mid92-04/93) joined Paradise.
- V-Cut, sysop 'TRADERS ISLAND' joined Equinox.
- Swedish graphician Eracore (new 91-04/93) left for TRSI. (is this right?)
- Hitech and Norwegian The Laiter (gfx swap, 02/91) got kicked.
- French musician Killerman is nowadays more known as Oxbow/Scoopex...
