Welcome to the WUDSN ursel home page

WUDSN ursel - or short WUDSN - is a demo group founded in 1991. There is an explanation why the group and the site are named like that, but that's a different story you can find in the FAQ. For the time being it should be sufficient for you to know that I, aka JAC! am one of the members ever since. I have created this web site to offer my tools and productions and to share the fun I have had for more than 20 years now with my Atari-8 bit computer and other classic computers. To learn more about me and what I'm doing, check out this personal interview that I gave for ANTIC - the Atari 8-bit podcast.

Silly Venture 2k17 Releases

As part of the Wild Competition of SillyVenture 2k17, I have released SillyPack 2k16 with all Atari 8-bit released of last year's event. I achieved 5th place out of 20 entries. All releases on the compilation have been tweaked and fixed to run seamlessly on the real hardware and with the menu system. 

In addition I released an entry called "I.V.I. - Incidential Vertical Interlace" in the 256 Bytes Competition. It is based on an effect I found by incident in 1992. It achieved 3rd place out of 8 entries. And right now as I type this text I realize it should have been "Incidental" not "Incidential". Funny what you learn when you look at things with a distance of, well, 25 years.

You can find the download for the binaries and the source in the Atari 8-bit Demos section. And like last year Paptak created a nice video of the whole event.

And if you think the party was crazy, look at what it caused on Pouet: A VCS demo leading the top of the month - What a blessing that I'm allowed to experience this in my life!


Silly Venture 2k17 Pictures

SillyVenture 2k17 was a blast. 3 days of fun and excitement with friends from all over the world. The only party where they stop the competition to get all the audience on stage for a free beer - 4 times. Great location, excellent video and sound system, inexpensive food and drinks, VCS concert, video message from Nolan Bushnell, ... and a delicious birthday cake for 250 people.

Bajtek 130/2016 - Klan Atari

Sillyventure 2017 is getting closer and browsing through my older mail I found that TDC had sent me the following pictures from an article in the Polish "Bajtek" magazine. I don't understand a word of the party report, the picture speak for themselves - it's been a great party. So let's make Sillyventure great again ;-)
