27 Apr / FUNCTION ANSI (quip)
Warpus and I (Quip) have started a new 100% ansi group called Function.
We are looking for artists to make for a spiffy looking for pack.
Please consult to our infopack (F(X)INFO.ZIPA)
for other information, or email myself at email@example.com.
26 Apr / NEW GLOBAL ART SITE (orbita)
www.artcore.com is a new non-profit web site dedicated to artists, (visual artists and musicians. It is a place for people to present their work (for free) and also a resource, news and information centre. It is not soley "Scene" art, in the strictest sense and so will cover all forms of art. But artscene members are very welcome and so are "groups" themselves. If you want a group page and somewhere to place your latest "artpack" then get in touch. Hopefully the site will evolve depending on the submissions i receive so if at first glance it doesnt appear to be for you get in touch and talk to me about it.
I can regularly be found on irc (effnet) in #vfx #hirez #mcg and #warez-traders-alliance. please feel free to mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
25 Apr / AWE IN NEED OF CODER (tna)
For those who are wondering about us, as you already noticed, we haven't
released on the 3rd like we had planned. This is mostly because I haven't been
able to get all the stuff from members. It seems like this is the hardest
to work on, in AWE. But however, I'm writing this mostly because we have
decided to change the way we've been working for the last year and a half.
We have decided to make our group look exactly the way we want it to look
like.. a way totally different from what has been done in the scene so far.
We aren't doing this to be original nor any of that crap; we are doing this
because we consider ourselves to be art creators and feel like people who
view the pack should view it the way we want it to be viewed. We feel like
this whole pack thing should look like it has been planned, organized. Not
like it's done in most groups today: a bunch of ansi/ascii/rip in a zip
file. So from now on, you aren't going to look at AWE Packs, but AWE
I would've liked to keep this secret, but I just can't because we are missing
an important thing for our little revolution (which isn't really a revolution
after all) and this is a good coder. We are looking for someone who really
knows what he's into. We aren't really looking for some kid who just
started learning basic, so if you're interested in becoming a part of us,
please email me at email@example.com. If possible, the coder should
actually be part of the scene since he'll have to deal with deadlines and
other things related to this scene.

You may experience some downtime in the first few days of May, as acheron is being transfered over to new, much faster server.

Well, if there were some people who thought that HRg will never release
its 15th pack, they were terribly wrong. To make sure, check for
It's not "cool". It's freezing COLD.
If someone wants to express his impressions and impress us with his
expressions about this pack, or if you do good art and feel like joining
- we're always available at #hrg on EFnet.
I know you'll like the pack. We did =)

Now that we've finally released FOS #6, work on the next issue has
already begun. However, writers are in short supply, so we're looking
for anyone interested in writing ansi/hirez/demo tutorials, interviews,
software reviews/tutorials and any other artscene-related articles.
Guests are always welcome, but we also have plenty of room on the staff
for permanent additions. If interested, email the FOS staff at

with that fit either experimental
ambient or dark jungle categories, email

The 4Th Disciple retired from the scene about 1 month ago to concentrate
on other things in life. He can sometimes be found hanging around
#dark, however as far as the scene goes he no longer exists. Included
is a final interview
that was never released due to some euro mag's bullshit death.

Fistful of Steel Issue #6 will be releasing next week. Originally
scheduled for mid-March, it has been delayed due to a wait on artwork
