Rush Hours '98

From ExoticA
25-26.04  Rush Hours 1998.
RH98 was held at a high school in Czestochowa, Poland by Freezers (amiga),
Pulse (pc), Shadows (atari) and Samar (c64). About 400 people attended. The
invitation promised lots of things it didn't keep, like the venue, which was
supposed to be the Magnes Czestochowianka Sport Hall. Most people felt the
school facilities were clearly inferior. The date, as announced in the
invitation, was 18-19.04 - and it said 'won't be changed' too! The date I'm
using is 100% correct though, and confirmed from several sources. For some
strange reason, only c64 sceners were allowed to vote for c64 productions...
Prizes were very low, and there seems to have been a general displeasure
with the c64 organizers, and accusations of vote faking was widespread. Some
c64 demos were disqualified due to viruses.
  The party atmosphere was reportedly very relaxed, with lots of people
spending most of their time outdoors due to the poor state of the school
facilities. The Police stopped by in the late afternoon, called by panicking
school staff, but only one car appeared and the cops seemed too scared of
the large crowd of party attenders to even get out of the car ;)
  This was also the party where the first ever PowerPC demo was released,
Venus Arts' remix of their classic "Everything Dies"! The second place in
the amiga demo competition, VA + MAWI's "Visible World" is not really a
demo, but a slideshow. There were 48 entries for the 4 channel competition
(9 selected), and 68 entries for the multichannel (12 selected). Thanks to
3Case for some information!
