Published on: October 3, 2009
It took only ages, but I finally managed to get it done, the complete list of SAC Intros/Cracktros/BBStros that were released in the SAC Art Packs between December 1994 and May 2007 are now up on the site where they belong. Well, not just a list, that would have been not a problem and could have been done in one afternoon. For each intro are detailed credits shown, links to the SAC art pack where they were released, links to resources, like the tracker modules, pixel logos and font graphics and other goodies were also added, where I was able to extract them, find them on the Internet or had them on my hard disk. I was able to capture most intros in video format, since most of them are not running under Windows 32 let behold Windows 64 bit anymore. You can watch the videos right from the listings page, download the original videos in AVI or WMV format (from my file share at Mediafire.com) or watch them on YouTube where I also uploaded them to my SACReleases channel on YouTube and added a link to the intro. There were over 90 cracktros, bbstros and invtros, which I first had on a single page, but I then realized that having users load a page of several MB in size might not be such a good idea after all and decided to break it down intro multiple pages… 4 pages to be exact. Here are the links to the 4[…]

Dynamic Technologies – Dytec – Introduction Continued

Published on: June 6, 2009

Almost exactly one year ago I did publish a post where I introduced 26 cracktros for the Commodore 64, 7 Cracktros for the PC and 4 Cracktros for the Commodore Amiga by one of my former release groups that is dear to my heard, Dynamic Technologies aka Dytec or simply DTC. I also created a remix video where I used the majority of Dytec logos that I had and many of the crack intro videos to show off some artistic high-lights of the group. ____ _____________ ______ ______ / \/ / /_ __// ___// ___/\ / / /\ _/ / /\_/ _/__/ /___\/ /_____/ /__/\\/__/ //_____//_____/\ \_____\/\__\/ \__\/ \_____\\_____\/ C R A C K E D: One thing that I noticed was that the few (4) intros that I had for the Commodore Amiga for Dytec, were pretty much all ugly and almost embarrassing. I was almost certain that there must have been more, since I do recall that we used logos for Dytec that were created on an Amiga for our Dytec PC cracktros. I always thought that those logos were used first in Amiga productions and were not created for the PC specifically (just like Dream Design did while he was in my art group SAC (Superior Art Creations) and also in Remedy Amiga (and “U.D.O.” hehe), still using his Amiga 500 as his main computer and only getting a PC much later). However, I could not find any of those, when I looked for them last year.[…]

The SAC – Superior Art Creations All-Time Member List Project Update

Published on: April 27, 2009

I am trying for a while now to create an all time Superior Art Creations member list. This is unfortunately no easy task, because the information in the SAC.NFO files of the SAC Pack releases were not always as well maintained as they should have been. I don’t want to point and blame anybody, but its is pretty tough to get a clear picture of who is who and who was in when as what, with the amount of information that can be extracted from the releases of the group itself. Here is what I came up with so for. The stuff that is high lighted with an orange background is where I would be happy, if anybody has an answer to my question or the missing information, whatever the case might be. Also, the whole last section with “Non-Contributing Temp Members” is open for input. Listed there are names that were mentioned that they are members of SAC, but I could not find any contribution of those guys in any of the SAC art packs. Maybe they did something under the name of SAC, but nothing that found its way into an art pack. If that is the case, then I want of course give the credits where credits are due and remove that person from the “non-contributing” section. If you know any of the folks where questions are still in the room or if you have any tip how or where I could find out more about them[…]

Time for Another ASCII and More

Published on: March 15, 2009

It has only been two months, a bit less actually, since I created my last piece of ASCII text art. Well, I did it again. Actually more than just a logo as I did the last time for CPI. I also design the NFO file body and more. I will show you the details further down below. I am pretty proud of myself, because I did not use any of my old styles for this new ASCII. I tried something different. I think that the result is very good, but it will be for others to decide if that is the case or not. I also created a FILE_ID.DIZ logo for them in oldskool ASCII (Amiga style), which I do not consider myself particular good at. I actually said always that oldskool ASCII’s should stay where they belong, on the Amiga, where they look right and not on the PC, which displays them much different as you can see at my article about the different art styles in the underground text art scene. While I had the creative urge going, I also created VGA pixel logos for the same group. It must have been their lucky weekend I guess. hehe.  It could also be that the release that they announced where this artwork will be used was highly motivating for me The second VGA logo. Simple and much smaller than the first one. It can also be read much easier. The VGA logos were used for a cracktro, together with[…]

First ASCII Art Piece of Mine in Ages

I cannot believe that I actually managed to create my first piece of block ASCII Art in ages… eons might be the better word to describe the time frame between the creation of this ASCII  and the last ASCII of mine that I created before this one. The ASCII that I created was a long over-due request by Mad Max, the co-founder of the old scene group CPI, Canadian Pirates Inc., which I actually joined myself in September of last year. I had this open request on my conscience for way too long and I am glad that I got this off my head now. I also hope that Mad Max will like the NFO file logo. I have to admit, that I got a little bit rusty (old maybe? ). I sent the ASCII to him via email, but did not hear back from him since then. I will find out sooner or later I also Finished Something Else 😉 !!! I wrote about the amount (count) of different SAC releases across all pages earlier this year.  I also made stuff available for download in re-sorted and grouped bundles by content type rather than by SAC artpack. Interesting SAC Art Packs Statistics, Figures and Downloads Interesting SAC Art Packs Statistics, Figures and Downloads – Part II More SAC Art Put Up for Access On-Line via Web Browser That was all nice and good, but does not make the old-school art of ASCII, ANSI or Pixel Art accessible (viewable) online[…]
