Frequently asked questions Updated whenever something new comes up

T he Meteoriks are very young and you're probably full of questions. Hopefully you'll find some answers here. If you don't, please write us so we can try to clear things up. If your question is of interest to everybody, we'll add it here.

  • The Meteoriks are named after the deceased Giles 'Meteorik/Meaty' Constant to honor his dedication to the demoscene and the inspiration he was to others within the community.

  • Yes

  • Reducing the workload of each juror is a big concern since it takes a lot of time watching and re-watching all productions to be able to select a deserving winner. By limiting the responsibilities of each juror to a smaller amount of work we increase the chance of having a happy jury and also getting more willing applicants.

  • There had been some confusion last year about the difference between fixed and open categories and what exactly their scope was for some of them. By making all categories except New Talent and Public Choice open for proposals, we follow our guiding principle of inclusion and want to make sure only productions from categories you really care about are getting recognition

  • Anything with a CPU that has a 16 bit or smaller data bus and Amiga AGA machines and comparable architectures. See also here.

  • The Meteoriks are built on the same principles as the Awards but are not an official successor.

    With the discontinuation of the Awards the demoscene was left with a void that needed to be filled. Our aim is to do exactly that and continue the great work that they were doing for ten years.

  • You'll have to know about potential candidates for the category you are jurying in, watch them all, decide which ones you find worthy and then (this is the hard part), coordinate with the rest of the jury to choose nominees and winners. We'll try to keep the workload manageable for every jury member.
