Contribute to Hugi!

Diskmags aren't one-way communication - they're intended to be a platform for you. Publish your thoughts and ideas, dreams and art, knowledge and information in Hugi to reach the whole PC demo scene and a large part of the game/multimedia development community.


After issue 35, we decided to drop the miscellaneous section in Hugi and fully focus on the demoscene. Demo groups, their members and releases, as well as demo parties, computer graphics, programming, music, art, technology - these are the main areas in Hugi. Basically, any topic related to these areas about which you think that it is interesting for the Hugi community is welcome. Need some inspiration? Then check out the essays and debates in the current issue or take a look at the lists of requested articles in the areas of scene, coding and gfx at the Hugi Website.

You preferably submit your article in a standard format such as HTML or plain text - HTML is slightly advantageous as you can thus show us how you would like your article to be formatted. By the way, the internal text-format of Hugi is close to HTML, so submitting your article as a HTML document speeds up the formatting process. Of course you can also include illustrations for the article, as JPG files. Photos, screenshots or artistic images - you decide what fits your article best.

What types of articles we are looking for:

* Reports about demo groups - What are they working on?
* Reviews of cool productions (demos, intros, mags and whatever you consider interesting)
* Making-of reports (how particular releases were created)
* Interviews with sceners who have something interesting to say
* Opinionated articles on various aspects of the scene
* Reports from demo parties
* Programming tutorials (graphics, sound, code optimization, algorithms, math,...)
* Graphics and music engineering tutorials


Hugi is also a platform where you can show off your graphic skills. Two categories are waiting for you:

Opening Pictures
Displayed when Hugi is started. You can design them absolutely freely, just keep in mind that the resolution used in Hugi is 1024x768.

Background Pictures
These images must also have a resolution of 1024x768 pixels. The text area in which the articles will be displayed must be at least 1024x620 pixels. You also have to include some kind of frame for the progress bar - you know, the bar that displays the current position in the article. There are yet more possibilities, for example you can include animated buttons in your picture. If you really want to make use of all these special features of the Hugi engine, talk to Adok about the technical details.


New music is always welcome as well. Nowadays we usually use tunes in MP3 format.
