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.

As you can see, our website is in a constant flux right now :)

Travel information

Updates, Evoke and more...
>> 27.08.04

As you can see, we added another website-theme (the default one) to remind you what beautiful time is up ahead. Christmas with your *real* family - tUM!

We are currently revising the compo rules and some other parts of the page. Updates are coming soon.

Most of the voters liked the anonymous competitions last year. So it looks like we will be doing it again this year. There's also a new vote (duh). Please make use of it :)

And we all hope to see you this weekend at Evoke!
BE THERE. We surely will :)

Alienware rules!
>> 21.08.04

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:

btw: ok, their machines are great for gaming, but they are perfect for running all those fancy modern hi-end demos!

Anonymous Competitions?
>> 20.07.04

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.

Go on vote, what are you waiting for?

Combined Graphics Competition
>> 12.07.04

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.

Amiga anyone?
>> 26.06.04

This years tUM will feature Amiga-compos for the first time in the history of the party. Please support us (and the Amiga-platform) by releasing loooots of Amiga-demos :-)

>> 25.06.04

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.


welcome to the tUM*o4 homepage. tUM will take place from 27.12. - 29.12.04 at the same location as last year.
