5555 is the number we like (misc)

Dear visitors,

We wanted to celebrate the 5000th newspost of 2008 with you here at PDRoms, but we greatly managed to miss this 🙂 So we just make it 5555 now, which is also not correct anymore, as there are currently more than 5600 news .

Of course PDRoms would be nothing without the homebrew scene and all the hard working guys, who spend their free time to create demos, games, applications or just write articles on how things should go. So here comes a BIG THANK YOU DEVELOPERS.

And of course… THANK YOU for reading and following 🙂 May there be another thousands of news 😀

Kojote & Team

PS: Feel free to spread the word about our great news service and our marvellous download archive 😀

When demos go multi-platform (misc)

Many productions released on the demoscene are made for more than one platform. A smart move since you can reach a bigger audience this way. But what is needed to do this and what are the differences if any?

Magic interviewed Xeron and Marq, both known for creating multi platform ports.

Follow the link below for the full and very interesting article!

New PDRoms Feature activated (misc)

Yes, sometimes even this becomes reality! PDRoms is having a new feature!

From yesterday on, each news item which appears on the main page, will have it’s thread at the PDRoms PHPBB discussion board.

This was a feature requested from several people and will hopefully spice up the activity there and makes it a useful community ressource.
