Welcome to Plus/4 World!
Two Lost Demos From TPSH
Posted by Csabo on 2017-01-21
Face Of A WomanNo Future (TPSH)New Proggys!! was recently added, and I've combed through the program list (now also online) to see what our database has and what it doesn't. In the missing list, I saw 3 programs from TPSH, so I emailed him to ask if he remembered any of those. Imagine my surprise when he sent back two :-)

So here's a mini review of them: Face Of A Woman may look familiar, the titular picture shows up in Advertisment, First Demo (TNS) and even One Sided. The origins of this picture are currently unknown, if anyone knows, drop a line to us on the forum! The second demo, No Future - not to be confused with CSM's demo with the same name - has 3 parts, the middle part being "build-it-up" style. Pretty typical for the Plus/4 scene for 1990 :-)

Best of all, TPSH said there's more to come :-) Check them out and enjoy!

7 More Unhearted Programs To Write History
Posted by Luca on 2017-01-19
Insider Report 3 PreviewIt never ends. Doesn't matter how many times you've checked for unreleased stuff hidden in the same old disks: new programs continue to jump in from nowhere.

Today we have the chance to write another little slice of history, adding up Spread It! into our database, an information demo which had been repeatedly released into the famous German disks of imported stuff called "CBT-news". It's actually a call for news, texts and generally materials to publish in a forthcoming 3rd issue of Insider Report diskmag, now under the Manowar label with graphics by Axxis and text by CBT and Ikari, into a core code by Degauss. Of course, nothing really existed consequently to this effort, but Degauss has found the prototype candidate of the mag's code lost into an old disk own by him: Insider Report 3 Preview! And full circle comes!

End of the story for TYG Demo too. The disk usually spreaded to almost everyone has ever shown big flaws, but nowadays we know that two versions were actually spreaded in those times, and the latter was a perfectly working one. And now the latter is the only one to show ;) On the other hand, we have no further news about Sound-Former by Apos/Charon, which basically is a screens gallery for what we currently know. No silence for Amiga-Samplez instead, 'coz its 2 disk sides of digitized instruments play loud via keyboard! To close the sound tools argument, Player 8bit is one of the most consumpting (and less used in practice) known overall. Last comes a +3 trainer for Zolyx which has never been included into the database, due to its similar name with Zolyx +++.

9 From Our Ancient Times
Posted by Luca on 2017-01-18
Raster Intro (TYG)Our old 5,25'' disks still hide some secret gems we've missed to reveal to the world, and a second scan must be done before archiving'em forever.
This time, 9 unseen programs have been saved forever. 7 Gfx and Elvira Wanted from the Demos/Picture Show side, ABC Turbo and another alternative version of Nova Copy System as speedcopiers on tape, New Proggys!! as catalog text from Tarzan which becomes another tile to insert into the Terrorists'' release mosaic; Rastr-Barz and Raster Intro (TYG), two copperbars movers from very opposite eras, the MOS'' Scroll-Generator editor and a never seen before Italian version of a beloved game: Rebound (Italian).

Massive Cover Update
Posted by Csabo on 2017-01-16
A HelyhatarozoA Kerdo Nevmas Es A Mutato NevmasA Hatarozoi IgenevTulajdonnevekLacus sent us a big pack of covers, photos and TAP files. This probably took a long time to archive, and certainly was a big effort to process, upload and add to the database. Let's see then!

First off we have added everything (full cover scans, cassette photos and TAP files) for four Hungarian educational titles: A Helyhatározó, A Kérdő Névmás És A Mutató Névmás, A Határozói Igenév and Tulajdonnevek. The last two are completely new in the database: we didn't know these existed. They are pretty neat, it might be fun to even if you don't speak Hungarian, as each one has a fun way of entering text that is unique. Those of us who do speak it - it's a trip back to elementary school, or something to test your kids with :-)

PattinkaSzemirámiszOn to games: we now also have all the stuff for Pattinka and Szemirámisz, as well as an alternative cover and cassette photo for Breki and Tányértorony. Next is the cover for A Nyuszi Olvasni Tanít 5. Unfortunately the cassette Lacus got no longer had the original program on it, but at least we have the cover. Judging from the back side, most likely all 6 parts had the exact same cover, with only the title replaced. Additionally, we have a new crack for all 6 parts, these include the title screen in each case.

The bonus round includes: cassette photos for Kis Professzor (also TAP file!), Music-16, Térbeli Amőba; some new programs (Bolyongás A Labirintusban, Játék POKE-ok C-16-ra, Magician's Curse 5 Hungarian.

Finally, Acrid also noticed one thing missing: the Blue Ribbon release of Cave Fighter. He sent it in, and we now have full size cover scans for it, cassette photo, and two TAP files. This is the version that contains a turbo loader. Check it out and enjoy, big thanks for these to Lacus and Acrid!

Posted by Luca on 2017-01-13Do like gc841 does: fill the holes in our database! He contributed with the cover scans for 10 Computer Hits 3 and the missing scans of Joe Blade 2.[ comment ]

7 More Programs From Sanya!
Posted by Csabo on 2017-01-09
Real PP DemoContinuing from last week, today we have 7 more programs from Sanya. Kockarutin, Az Alföld and Walesi Bárdok are smaller demos. Piramis Adventour is a Hungarian adventure. New-ROM Info is from Tiger, made with his own text-writer utility, describing his own hardware creation. The last two are pretty interesting: The Santa-Claus is a Christmas greeting from Fool and finally the Real PP Demo is a curious one: a collaboration by Coby and LTA. Check it out if you love demos!

A few more house keeping notes: Luca found Practising Games on a D64, a collection of cheats, this is now properly in our database. Also, we've created a new category called "Demo/Information", for demos that are mostly made for giving out information or documentation (previously called "Misc/Documentation").

Some of you may remember this topic from the forum, or this preview picture, and this demo is now real! It's up to you to test the pictures and compare them to the C128 slideshow, then decide: who does it better? :-)

7 Programs From Sanya
Posted by Csabo on 2017-01-05
The Games' Musics Demo 1+I'm always happy to see new demos for the Plus/4, and I feel the same whenever I discover an old, but previously unseen demo as well. So, if you're like me, you'll be happy to know that we have added 7 new programs from Sanya's archives: two Hungarian games (1 Szó Mint 100, Vegyjel-Kitalálósdi), a tape copy (Szalagmásoló), and some demos: COV29-30 Info, Fantastic Demo, Graphic Demo, The Games' Musics Demo 1+. Go on a retro-demo trip and check them out!
