Once again, Dreamcast-Scene has a special offer for all tUM visitors. This
time, the stylish DCS t-shirt "one" will be available for the first time at tUM*o4 and also stickers will be sold. All this for a very good special
This year we've got so much special features that we've set up an extra page for them :) We've got everything: internet, 2nd stage, compo-streams, cool prizes - you name it. Please take a closer look and SPREAD THE WORD!
midiOVERlan /Malik Trey vs Gendrift / nuance will perform a live act this year. They already played at buenzli 13 and rocked the crowd. Take a look at their website.
Metalvotze, your friendly c64 group is presenting a c64-only pr0n competition. Just hand in c64 gfx with pornographic content! All gfx will be shown on the bigscreen and judged by certified Metalvotze members. There'll even be prizes! The only requirements: c64, p0rn, workstages. Hooray!
If you're doing msx or gfx for c64, you can hand in your entries via EMail. Send your stuff to: entries (at) tum-party (dot) org!
Of course the Hungarian t-shirt mogul will bring some of his best stuff again. Expect some retrocomputing fetish - C-64, Atari, Amiga - again, some original Assembly party t-shirts, and some other funny stuff. Each shirt will cost 12 Euros.
Yet again we're presenting you a very nice surprice for this year's the Ultimate Meeting. On all the three days of the party, Dreamcast-Scene has it's own booth at the party place and sells low priced Dreamcast systems inclusive all cords and at least one controller for only 50 Euros.
To all those packages a CD with the KallistiOS developmet kit and many example applications and source codes is included. The first people who are buying a Dreamcast set also get a few of our new games and accessories (like a second controller, VMUs, coders cables, keyboards, etc.) for free!
This is a nonrecurring event due we sell it even under the purchasing price. Our aim is to give interested sceners the possibility to get their hands of one of the most exciting systems of our days and support the demoscene activity on the Dreamcast. If you want to get sure to get a system on tUM*o4, we can reserve you one if you pay us in advance by PayPal or international bank transfer.
Digitale Kultur e.V. is organizing a bus trip to tUM! This is great news for all of us. They're starting at Cologne Main Station and even stop at the low cost airline hub Koeln/Bonn Airport. There goes your excuse for not visiting tUM this year :) More information at their homepage.
This year we'd like to give you the opportunity to submit stuff that you like us to show between competitions/events on the bigscreen in advance. Please check out the new beamstuff page for more information.
Since He-Man clearly dominated our last poll, we have yet another one (yawn).
We like to announce our main sponsor! "Fuerst Internet Solutions" is a leading manufacturer of web-based applications such as online-payment, chat-communities and the like. With their support, we can really turn tUM into the christmas you've always wanted :)

We'd like to welcome Alienware as a sponsor of tUM*o4!
Since 1996 Alienware Corporation is manufacturing innovative high-performance computers. They are striving to take a leadership within the sector of custom PC solutions. Be sure to check out their site: www.alienware.co.uk
btw: ok, their machines are great for gaming, but they are perfect for running all those fancy modern hi-end demos!
It looks like most of the people want to have seperated pixel and raytraced competitions. As we are very kind and generous, we'll think about it again :-)
Another topic are "Anonymous Competitions" Some of you may remember last year's tUM where we chose not to display the names and groups of the artists of the single artists competitions (graphics and music). We did this so that the voters can concentrate on the actual art and not the artist (to somewhat limit the namevoting). So here's a poll to get the people's opinion about that.
It looks like many people don't really know what a combined graphics competition is, so here's the scoop.
Since we didn't have many entries for the pixel- and the raytraced competitions in the last two years, we thought about combining them into one big(ger) graphics competition. Just like the freestyle-gfx competition at Breakpoint. For some it may seem a little unfair but we think this could provide us with a less boring compo and also boost the overall quality of the gfx-entries.
Welcome to the new tUM*o4 party homepage. Look around and register for this years tUM. We are currently reviewing our competition-rules and some other stuff which will be online as soon as possible. Should you have any questions, please use the contact form to get in touch with us.
