Next up: DiHalt Lite 2021! 7th-9th of January, so Jan 6th is the deadline I guess.
I assume BotB Winter Chip will have Beeper as well, so better start stashing up some tunes, hehe.

Re: upcoming beeper compos

My congratulations, utz, and Tufty, on stealing my imminent victory once again! Took me some time to figure out who is behind these amazing tracks, it wasn't too obvious this time, even though I did have clues that engines likely were used and your preferences.

Re: upcoming beeper compos

Thanks! That was some very strong competition from you guys. Listening again, I think "Repeating Itself" is actually my favourite from this compo. And yup, I was likewise a bit puzzled by "who the hell is trying to beat me at Squat", but the "author's comment" was a give-away. Now who's hellraver, though?

Re: upcoming beeper compos

hellraver is Alexey Krivtsov of ZX BITLES group, they're actually have a website that was name of one of the entires: http://zxbitles.com/. As I understand, the guys are just recently come the the scene, and is not known by prior works, besides their 2020 game.

Re: upcoming beeper compos

Ok, thanks. Let's hope he'll discover some more advanced engines eventually.

Re: upcoming beeper compos

Well done guys! Tracks are just a bomb! Cool!!!!!!

Re: upcoming beeper compos

Cheers Vinny.

Always great to enter the DiHalt beeper compo.

Re: upcoming beeper compos

Wow !
Lots of amazing beeper tracks !!

I really have no idea who is behind the tracks this year.

Re: upcoming beeper compos

Just seen the results in the stream. 1st and 2nd are mine, Freezing Point and Geostorm. 3rd is Tufty's March Of The BioMech. Congrats, Tufty!

Should say I was expecting the utz's drum'n'halt to get the 1st, it was so fresh. Wish I would make something like this. And I was expecting to get 3rd with one on mine's, as Tufty's stuff is great and strong as usual - it sounds very powerful and not so beeper'y at a good volume.

Regardless of the results, great job as usual, guys! Beeper is the real winner again!

Re: upcoming beeper compos

Nah, no first place for me this time, that was to be expected. I only had one day to spend on this, so didn't polish things up as much as I could have. So, congratulations on your well-deserved win, Shiru. Excellent work. Especially beating we with my own engine hahaha.

It was a very strong battle overall. Really like BioMech as well, that middle section with the fast arps sounds so slick. Surprising entries from AER as well, glad to hear some beeper from him again.

Re: upcoming beeper compos

Well done Shiru, well deserved win and both excellent tracks, yours too utz.

I've made a little vid of my entry, it's here:
