In Commodore Amiga - Demos - Packs

Land beyond Thought (19xx)(Deifance) & Raccadab (1993)(Defiance - V-A Design)
=> Land beyond Thoughts (1994)(V-A Design) & Raccadab (1993)(Defiance)

The credits on this one are confusing. V-A most probably refer to Valiant and Avenger, the guys who created these "dentros" as they call them. Land beyond Thoughts only refers to V-A Design, but not Defiance, whereas Raccadab says "copyright V-A Design/Defiance". I'm not sure if they wanted V-A Design to be an independent release group first, but then still released this disk under the Defiance label.

Some I missed:

A500 Hommage (1994-12-27)(Complex)[h BTTR - Warlock][m bamcopy]
= A500 Homage (1994-12-27)(Complex)[h BTTR - Warlock][m bamcopy]

Also the demo crashes after showing the dots routine. Not sure if I used a wrong configuration or the ADF is indeed faulty, I tested it with an A500 configuration in OCS and ECS.

--

Wild Thing (1993-07-30)(Stellar)[h Warlock][m bamcopy]
= Wild Thing (1993-07-31)(Stellar)[h Warlock][m bamcopy]

Ting (1993-08-01)(Movement)[h Warlock][m bamcopy]
= Ting (1993-07-31)(Movement)[h Warlock][m bamcopy]

According to the list on Demozoo.org of other productions released at the Assembly 1993, this party was held on the 31st of July.

A500 Homage
=> Fixed

Concerning the date of publication of a demo at a party, it's not an absolute science (and I won't talk about time zone!):
The party started on July 30th and ended on August 1st. How do you determine the release date of a demo?
Example with the Bananamen demo:
demozoo : 1993/07/31 ( https://demozoo.org/productions/447/ )
pouet : 1993/08 ( http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=8174 )
Kestra : 1993/08/01 ( http://janeway.exotica.org.uk/release.php?id=9720 )

You understand that depending on your source of information, the "truth" changes because it is all based on interpretations and estimates. In fact, you don't know if a demo has been made public before, during or after the official presentation (see much later)...
