Hall Of Fame Updates
Posted by Csabo on 2014-08-31
Hall Of FameOur Hall Of Fame has got a new lease on life. Thanks to everyone for their feedback, your voices have been heard. The latest update gives you these features:
  • One games that is more than one game: sometimes, like with Summer Events, you can play two or more different games. A new field (called sub-game) allows you to enter which one you've used. Other examples are Cave Fighter (has Side A and Side B versions), or Daley Thompson's Star Events (has Day 1 and Day 2).
  • Secondary score: for games like G-Man, the score will have a maximum value (4000 in this case). Entering a secondary score (time) will allow us to rank the best ones.
  • Statistics: the top section has been expanded reworked and now includes some (hopefully interesting) statistics.
Some of these features still require manual work, and of course bugs might occur here or there, so be sure to speak up if you have more ideas, or if you see something that doesn't work quite right. Otherwise: keep on gaming :-)

Spektro's Treasure!
Posted by Csabo on 2014-08-30
War GamesSpektro dug though his personal collection and found 12 new pieces of software for the site! 6 of these are Finnish language, which is something quite rare (including these, we're counting 9 Finnish language programs in total, ever). If you feel like checking out some rare never-before-seen oldies, give these a shot:
* Finnish games: Alcatrazin vangit (an adventure), Hazard, Kaivos, Klassista 16 (a demo, music box), Liikemiespeli and Othello.
* English games: 16 Trap, Bandit, Landing, Space Radar, War Games and Z-Worm.
Big thanks to Spektro for these, enjoy!

Temple of Terror!
Posted by Csabo on 2014-08-23
Temple of Terror ManualLet me tell you a little tale about Plus4 Pete. On a nice sunny day in 1987, fourteen year old Pete met up with his two best friends, ZX Zachary and SixtyFour Sid. Both of them had a brand new computer game called Temple of Terror. Over at Sid's place, as they loaded the game up, Pete exclaimed: "Oh, this is Fighting Fantasy! I love those books!" As he scanned over the instruction manual, his eyes caught this phrase: "When loading TEMPLE OF TERROR for a Commodore 16 or PLUS 4 computer..." Excited, he rushed to the nearby computer shop, and slapped a few wrinkled bills on the counter. Victor Vendor, the shopkeeper sniffled, and said to him: "Lookie here kid. That's probably just a typo, they's left it in 'cause it generic text. All I's knows is, I ain't gots this game and that's that." Disappointed, Pete left the shop and walked home. His wish to play the game on his home computer was forever unfulfilled.

But wait, the story's not over just yet! A mere 27 years later, a middle aged Pete dusts off the ol' Plus/4 and loads the game up. His friends, Zachary and Sid are over for the momentous occasion. "Did you guys ever finish playing it?" Pete asks them. "Nah," replies Zachary, "it was full of bugs, and at the end, there's this door, and when you try to open it, it says something stupid about pirates being eaten by crocodiles. I guess my copy was bugged." "Mine too!" chimes in Sid. But lo and behold, the Plus/4 version works!

With that introduction, I'm proud to present my conversion of Temple of Terror adventure game.

Plus4 Pete... IS YOU!

Back On The Ground
Posted by Luca on 2014-08-15
Super Prg MergerWe really need to land our feet on the solid ground again, after the incredible stuff seen on the scene. And there's no better way to do that than updating the serious side with utils and tools.

SVS has released an English translated version of PLUS-Comp compiler, hence now it can be used worldwide. Please notice that this translated one is based on the Kocka's crack, hence we're still looking for the original one!
Some stuff coded by Litwr has been wrongly omitted from this archive, and it's now time to recover it. First of all, the Super Prg Merger utility. And more, two PC conversion tools: Prg2p00 converts PRG files into [P00] format with no characters mismatching; Txt2seq allows to easily convert any plain .TXT file into one or several SEQ files.
