About

Not really a party, more a single competition. Invitated in Eurochart 16, and the result were given in Eurochart 17. 8 competitiors brought some very nice looking 1024 byte Bootblock intros.

       COMPETITION


As  mentioned  last time, we'll have a
competition   in  each  issue  of  The
Official   Eurochart.    This  section
contains  the result from last issue's
bootblock-competition,  as  well  as a
new  competition.   But  first,  let's
repeat the prices:

The winner in each competition will
get:

- A free one year subscription for the
  Eurochart.
- All disks we receive for the
  competition.

The  jury  consists  of  the Eurochart
staff.

             RESULT


We've  received 8 contributions to the
bootblock-competition.   We  had hoped
to see a lot of bootblocks with music,
but  the  only  one with music was the
one  from Major Asshole of Spaceballs.
That  one  is  not the winner, though.
The winner is, of course:

               TRON


ex-Anarchy, with his Glenz-boot.  Nice
job, Tron!

However,  we  were also VERY impressed
when  seeing  the Dot-Mutation-Boot by
Adept  and  the  Dot-Flag-Boot by TEK.
Especially  TEK have done a great job,
as  their  bootblock  seems  to run on
most  configurations,  as  opposed  to
most     other    bootblocks    today.
Furthermore,    TEK   have   made   an
installation    program    for   their
bootblock,   or   actually   for   any
bootblock,   so   they've  received  a
little something from us as well.

The    installation    program,   it's
documentation,  and  all participating
bootblocks   can   be   found  in  the
'BootBlocks'-directory  of  this disk,
so  you're  all able to see whether or
not you agree with us.
