Support Versus at Gerp

A few words from the Versus chartmag editor Browallia:

Excited to announce that we once again go for Versus, issue 10 for Amiga where you decide what you like! At Gerp we will open for votings for the people there and be able for chats.

The voting at Gerp 2024 will be pure old school with traditional paper votesheets + pencil. We hope to get votes during Gerp so we can continue serve the Amiga scene. See you there! /brow

On behalf of Versus team (menthos, ghandy, cefa, and browallia of nukleus, and puni, powerslave and hukka of void)

Versus (vS) comes out on OCS, OS4, smartphone and online.


It seems very likely that there will be snow in Gerp country this coming weekend. For those of you who travel by car, make sure that you have equipment suited for Swedish winters. For the rest of you, the train station is just next to the party place, so you will be ok even if it's snowing.

We have put together a party info page for you to read beforehand for some good to know information when you arrive and is on the party. Most of the info is the same as previous years but we have just not had it in writing before now.

Contact us at [email protected] to unregister.

Amiga compo prizes

We just received a couple of brand new Amiga 500 replacement cases that will be part of the reward for winning the Amiga Demo and Intro compos respectively. Big thanks to emoon of TBL for donating these fine prizes!

Update: A set of keycaps will follow with each case!

More table space

We have booked an extra room in the culture centre, so if you didn't catch a computer seat while signing up you may still find a place to put up some equipment. Or if you just want to get away from the noise in the main hall for a while.

Getting crowded...

We have reached 100 reserved computer seats meaning that you can no longer reserve a ticket that includes table space. We might however come up with a plan to get some more room for computers so stay tuned. Currently you may only sign up without a computer seat, we have set the upper limit of visitors (with or without computer) to 130.

Gerp 2024 is here!

It's time to pack your releases and book your tickets! GERP is once again coming to a town near you (Skövde).

Go to the Sign Up page via the menu to sign up and for payment and price information.

We also have some updated compo rules for this GERP, so make sure to check them out!

The essentials

  • Dates: January 19-21, 2024.
  • Location: Skövde culture centre (Sweden).
  • Fees:
    Prepay: 150 SEK.
    At the party: 200 SEK.
    Foreigners: €10
  • Visitor capacity: 130 (of which 100 with computer).

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).

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.


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.

Gerp is over!

When you arrive!

When you arrive at the venue, find yourself a seat and dump your 8-, 16-, or 32-bit computer there. After your computer has been taken care of head to the info desk for processing!

When you arrive at the info desk, find a crew person and have them check you in. If you have not paid your ticket yet then make sure to do that also and have crew check you off that list too.


After checked in you will get a vote token which you will need to be able to vote in the compos. If you did not get one then ask crew and we'll get you one.

If you loose your vote token then contact crew and we can hopefully retrieve the token. If you think your vote token is compromised we can cancel it and issue a new one for you :)

We use a in-house proprietary voting system for voting. To prepare for voting, head to and enter your handle and the token you received when checked in.

You need to be at the party to retrieve a vote token thus be able to vote.

Voting will be available after each compo. We will not activate voting until all compo entries in a compo has been shown.

The site does not currently auto refresh when new compos become available so it's up to you to refresh the page. Any changes you do in your votes is saved instantly so even if you refresh the page they will persist.

A smart phone or computer or alike with a modern browser (with javascript etc) and an internet connection is required to vote.

Scroll up/down on the vote page to display different categories to vote for.

I have entries for them compos!

We accept entries for Amiga on standard Amiga Floppy Disk (DD 3,5") or on USB/SDCard/CFCard etc. If you need to send it in by mail then contact crew and we'll fix it.

C64 entries is accepted on 5¼ Floppy Disk or as PRG or Disk File on USB/SDCard/CFCard. Contact crew if you need to send by mail.

If you need to connect your own hardware and want to test it before the compos, then contact crew and we'll figure it our together. If you don't have the hardware then a Video file is ok too. Contact crew to figure out what is the best approach.

When is door open?

We will close and lock the door at about 02:00 and will open it up at about 09:00 (deep sleep time). This is done so we can sleep in peace without having to worry about some random gamer enter the venue to steal our precious computers.

If you need to enter the venue during close hours then make sure to have an inside contact who can help you get in. The door can still be opened from the inside when locked.


Sleeping can be done on the floor. When it's time to sleep then find a cosy spot and snuggle in.
