About

Watch the stream!

The twitch stream for FieldFX can be found here: https://www.twitch.tv/fieldfxdemo. Check the Timetable for streaming times.

Additionally, Young FieldFX will operate a Youtube stream here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCP3IxmKmdib7uJg4Bbzq04A/live. This will run from 11am to 1pm on Saturday so that you can join in with the party if you're under the age limit for Twitch. We will be moderating the chat to keep it fun and safe.

If you haven't signed up to the partynet, head down to Registration to get a votekey and a link to the submission and voting area. We send these out manually so try to sign up in advance.

What is Field-FX?

Field-FX is a Demoparty that usually takes place at Electromagnetic Field. Unfortunately due to current circumstances Electromagnetic Field 2020 had to be canceled, but we won’t let that stop the party! Field-FX has gone online see you on July 24th to 25th.

Compos

Categories

Intro

For those who like it small, modern PC demos that are smaller than this webpage. 4k/64k demos, Windows and browser entries will be supported. Hardware TBC but there will be a reasonable GPU on the demo machine.

Demo

Full-size PC demos. Show your coding, art and music skills without any size limitations.

Old School

Commodores, Sinclairs, BBCs, Ataris and more. Old hardware has its own magic, and getting something beautiful out of these unique designs is a reward in itself. But consolekabels.be is also sponsoring prizes so get coding!

Music (Old School DnB/Jungle)

Every party needs a music compo, and we play both kinds of music here: drum, and bass.

Teletext

The most iconic graphic format ever? We still love it! https://edit.tf is recommended for making Teletext graphics

Photo

You know what photos are. Send us a nice one, everybody votes on it, simples.

Graphics

Oldschool and newschool are welcome. Draw a potato, or anything really. Pictures.

Wild

Lions, tigers, bears, and anything else that doesn’t fit into the above categories (please do not send us an actual bear, we’ve only just got rid of the last one.)

Okkie Compo

This compo is part of "A chat about the Demoscene with Okkie and Guests". It's not a serious democompo it is a bit of fun to showcase the unique atmosphere you find at a demoparty.
Anything goes it's Basically a wild compo, but with Okkie as the theme.

Rules

Obey the code of conduct.

For intro entries, make sure you include a description that states the size category you are targeting.

All entries must be under 5 minutes.

The organizers' decisions are final. We want to show off all your work to the standard it deserves, but we are doing this in our spare time and things can go wrong. Getting your demo in before the deadline is a good way to ensure that it gets shown!

Deadline

12pm Saturday for all entries at the latest.

Young Field-FX

Young Field-FX

Young Field-FX is a chance for young sceners to share your demos and art!

Demos are computer programs that play animation and music. We will collect your entries and play them on the Twitch stream for Field FX, and on a separate Youtube stream for anyone that isn’t old enough to watch Twitch.

It will be hosted at lunchtime on 25th July 2020.

All entries must be submitted by Friday 24th July, check back here later this month for the details.

Who is it for?

Anyone that is 16 years old or younger can enter.

There are three categories: 8 and under, 9-12, and teens. All entries will be sorted by age group rather than by the kind of entry it is, because it's fairer.

(We might split up or join the groups if the compo gets really busy!)

What can I enter?

You can enter of music, graphics, coding and animation for any platform. It does not need to be a demo! Just something that we can show or play on the stream. Things that run in a webpage, like Scratch, will be played fullscreen using Chrome or Firefox. Music can be in mp3, wav, ogg or flac format. Pictures can be jpg or png. For all other things, we recommend that you make a screen capture of it. We like https://obsproject.com for capturing things.

You can submit games that you have made, but demos that don’t need any buttons pressing are encouraged.

Rules

Personally identifying information is not allowed in your demo. You can use your name, and your friends' names, but don't put in things like your surname, or your email address. If you have a public social media account, it is okay to mention that.

You may get help from whoever you like, but you need to tell us in the description what they did. This is just so that it is fair to other competitors.

All entries must be under 3 minutes long. Really good entries can be 4 minutes.

The organisers' decisions are final. We want to show off all your work to the standard it deserves, but we are doing this in our spare time and things can go wrong. Getting your demo in before the deadline is a good way to ensure that it gets shown!

Deadline

23:59 on Friday 24th at the latest.
