Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year!

We wish you all a happy holiday

Let's hope next year will bring us more demo scene parties where we can actually meet IRL.

Confirmations and refunds!

There is now information on how you can confim your reservation for the new date at the Sign Up! page.

If you want to come, you have to confirm your reservation.

If you don't want to or cannot come, you don't have to do anything. If you have not confirmed your reservation on the 28th of January, we will remove your spot and refund your ticket if you already payed for it.

New date!

We have now secured a new date for Gerp 2022! The venue is booked and will be the same as last time.

Book the weekend April 1st to 3rd (no, it's not a AFD joke..) and we will hope that Covid decides to slow down until then.

More info regarding how to confirm your registration will come here later this week, so keep your eyes open.

Gerp Postponed!

Due to the ongoing pandemic, and the uncertainties it brings, Gerp 2022 has been postponed. We are looking at a new date not too far into the future and will be back with more information as soon as it has been confirmed that the venue is available. More information will hopefully be available within a week.

Once the date has been published you will have to confirm that you want to keep your reservation or you will be removed from the visitors list. If you have prepaid your entrance fee you will get to choose if you want the money back or if the payment should be kept for the new date.

Fire up your paint programs!

Prowler and Nicepixel.se are once again sponsoring the compos at Gerp with some printed pixel art!

The winner of the Amiga graphics compo will receive a copy of the book The Masters of Pixel Art - Volume 3 and the winner of the Other platform graphics compo will receive a nice pixel art calendar and a pack of pixel art postcards.

We now have an Intro compo!

Due to popular demand we are expanding the compos with an Amiga 40k intro competition.

Let's get those crunchers going and ready your intros for precalc!

Melodikrysset returns!

Dalton of Tulou will be back at Gerp 2022 with another special edition of Melodikrysset.

Enjoy classic amiga game tracks and try to solve the crossword puzzle while sipping on your morning coffee.

Good news everyone!

Chucky and TerribleFire are sponsoring the Amiga demo compo with an Amiga 1200 TF1260 accelerator card complete with a rev1 50 MHz 060 CPU and 128MB RAM.

But hold your disks, we are not finished yet! They are also sponsoring the Other platform demo compo with an Amiga 1200 TF1230 accelerator card with 50MHz 030 CPU and 128 MB RAM.

Both of the cards will be first prizes in their respective compos.

Gerp 2022 is on like Donkey Kong!

Time to Gerp again!

Planning has started for yet another instance of the demo party Gerp, so save the 28th-30th of Januari 2022 for a weekend of fun and demoing. Once again we host it in the middle of Skövde, right next to the train and bus station.

Due to the current pandemic we will monitor the regulations and recommendations that Swedish authorities suggests and we are aware of the risk that things might get worse again. We therefore recommend that you make sure that you can get your money back on hotel reservations etc.

General information

The party has a focus on the oldschool platforms and historically it has been a stronghold for the Amiga demoscene, hence the focus on this platform. However everyone with an intrest in the demoscene is welcome no matter if your target machine is a C64, an Atari, a PC or something else. In total there is room for about 100 people with computers.

Since the partyplace is located in the middle of town you will find hotels, restaurants, bars, supermarket etc all within a few minutes of walking. The closest hotels are located just around the corner and the train/bus station is right across the street.

There will be beer sold at the party and this is something we will arrange together with the restaurant that is located in the same building as the party. While this is a nice feature it also has the downside that you are not allowed to bring your own alcohol inside (yup, that's the law).

Due to the current pandemic we will monitor the regulations and recommendations that Swedish authorities suggests and we are aware of the risk that things might get worse again. We therefore recommend that you make sure that you can get your money back on hotel reservations etc.

The entrance fee includes free breakfast on saturday and sunday and free coffee troughout the party. As with any true demoparty you can bring your inflatable matress and sleep in the hall. If you're getting rusty and rather sleep at a hotel we supply some links for you below.

Travelling

If you are going by car you should point your GPS towards 'Långgatan 7' in Skövde or find driving directions for how to get there. Once you arrive at the culture centre look for the entrance towards the hall named 'Freja', located at the north-east side of the building.

There is a parking house ('Modeparkeringen') a couple of hundred meters north of the party place with a cost of 75 SEK for 24 hours. This is probably the best solution if you want to avoid hassle with moving the car during certain hours and want to park close to the party. You can also park by the trainstation but this is slightly more expensive.

The closest parking space just north of the party place has a limit of max two hours parking during pay time (10-18 friday, 10-15 saturday and sunday) and the cost for these hours are 10 SEK for the first hour and 20 SEK for the second hour. While unloading your gear you can also park your car along the road outside the railroad station.

If you don't want to pay for parking and don't mind parking a bit further away you can unload your gear and then park your car for free at Arena Skövde a 10-15 minutes walk from the partyplace.

Here be a link to nice internet page about parking in Skövde: Click here for parking information.

If you want to go by train or bus just make sure that your end destination is 'Skövde Resecentrum'. Cross the street and head for the entrance shown in the picture below.

Registration

Sorry, but the princess is in another castle and she said we don't have any more available seats. If a spot becomes available we will open the registration again, so keep an eye out here. There is no queue.

Prepay your entrance fee by swishing 200 SEK to phone number 0731-414259 or if you prefer transfer the same amount to bank account 8299-0 993.628.580-9 (Swedbank). Do this before 23rd of March 2022 and mark your payment with your handle. If you pay by bank transfer please also send a mail to gerpparty@gmail.com so we don't miss to check the account.

If you insist on paying at the party place, by cash or Swish, the entrance fee will be 250 SEK.

Since it's not possible for foreigners to prepay with Swish, and bank transfer can be cumbersome, it will still be 200 SEK (~€20) at the party. We prefer SEK.

Due to the recent recommendations issued by the government (Covid-19..), we have to move the date to 1st of April.

If you still want to keep your spot for the party, please confirm your reservation in the list below before the 28th of January. If you cannot attend you don't have to do anything. Anyone who is not confirmed end of January will be removed from the list and has to sign up again.

If you have paid for a ticket but cannot attend at the new date, fear not! When confirmation closes, at the end of January, we will repay any tickets that are not confirmed.

If you have any questions regarding any of the above, please contact us at gerpparty@gmail.com.

New registrations will open beginning of February.

So far 100 people signed up. There are currently no seats available.
