How to Support Hugi
or: Get your stuff into the mag!
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 multimedia development community.
The scene, demos, computer graphics, programming, music, art, technology, science, philosophy, politics, lifestyle & literature - these are the main areas in Hugi. Basically, any topic you think to be 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 coding and gfx at www.hugi.de.
You preferably submit your article in a standard format such as MS Word .DOC, HTML or plain-text. The first two formats are slightly advantageous as they enable you to show us how you would like your article to be formatted. The internal text-format of Hugi is close to HTML, so submitting your article as a HTML document may speed up the formatting process if you keep the HTML code "clean", without too special tags.
*NEW*: There's a Word template called Word2Panorama by zZz/KCN which enables you to convert documents written with MS Word to the Hugi-internal format. If you submit your articles in the Hugi-internal format, that's the best solution of all. The tool is included in the Hugi 25 archive (word2pan.zip).
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. Recommended size: not more than 300x350 pixels.
Some detail information about the types of articles suiting the individual sections:
Hugi is also a platform where you can show off your graphic skills. Two categories are waiting for you:
New music is always welcome as well. We can use tunes in .xm, .it, .s3m, .mod, .mp3 and .mo3 formats. Please try not to exceed 600 kbytes as we want to keep the download-time as small as possible, and if possible, try to use less than 20 channels so that Hugi will also run with enabled music playback on slower PCs at a decent speed. Tunes with a duration of at least four minutes are preferred.
We're also interested in publishing commented source codes of smaller productions, like 256b, 4k or 64k intros, in Hugi's bonus pack so that new coders can learn tricks from them.
