Welcome to Plus/4 World!
|HVTC Update April 2017|
|Posted by Luca on 2017-04-19|
|The High Voltage TED Collection, better known as HVTC, reaches 544 single files, and recover the two missing tunes composed by Degauss for Crackers' Demo 5!|
27 brand new files added and some few ones fixed/moved/renamed (and the heaven knows how much Treasure Island really needs a fix to better choose between the tunes!); some complete services like Genius (including the super hidden level 81 tune!) and Slipstream, some brand new exclusives like 5tarbuck's Woodymania, some oldie-goldies we'd incredibly missed like Hektik's jingles. Add-ups and linking to the archive will be completed in a very short time.
Don't forget to completely delete the whole previous collection (that's the way to do at any new update!), then download/unzip the new one!
This is the straight link to the ZIP file.

|Ten thousand programs on Plus/4 World! What a milestone!|
The last time we had an announcement like this was back in 2004, reporting 5000. That was a little over 12 years and 4512 days ago, so on average, we've added about one program per day since. What is the 10000th program you may ask? Well, it's a GTW: Lemmings - that ID has been reserved for it a long time ago. To rain on our own parade a little: the way we count things is a bit strange: we have 6 different cracks of ACE 2 lumped together as one "program", but we list Kichy's conversion of Storm +4 which has 3 versions as 3 separate entities. Well, it is what it is, not perfect, but it's still nice to step back, look at this nice round number and feel a little proud of ourselves.
With that, I would like to send a huge THANK YOU to everyone who worked on the site, sent in programs, cover scans, TAP files, information, or used our forum to keep the site alive!
|New Bunch Of Stuff Added|
|Posted by Luca on 2017-03-23|
|Another auction has been won on eBay, another bunch of missing software comes to fix our software database.|
Today we saved both Italian's originals/cracks and early beginnings software from CBM U.S., and we added in some missing pictures like covers and cassettes. First of all Letter Sequences/Long And Short and Maze Mania with their respective manuals and accessory stuff, and Mindbenders (Italian version, and we just had the relative manual for this). Savage Collection N.2 and Al Ladro / Briscola compilations from the rare Savage Software's production, Jackson Soft Compilation 3 also comes to complete the whole series (although a better TAP would be fine in the near future), and Software Club #15 enters as another piece of the jigsaw regarding this series to better define its dualism between Italian and German versions. Star Fighter is another Playvision's resold crack, just as Star Wars (Golden Software) would have been too, being probably the very first release from Golden Software, but the tape has been found quite gone forever due the bad preservation state, and it remains a MIA... Plus, additional cassette pictures for C16 Super Games 1, C16 Super Games 2, Olimpia 1 / Evadere, Math Games And Word Problems.
Thanks to these entries, several mistakes have been fixed: now we own the official release of Android Nim, and we have a better idea about the different versions of Assedio. Unfortunately, the archive still misses a disk image for Letter Sequences/Long And Short, which may rise as soon as possible in our hopes.
EDIT: a last minute acquisition is Trivia, a quite rare Italian software indeed.

|75Up From Knucklehead Collection|
|Posted by Luca on 2017-03-11|
|We've just had an initial taste of the programs which could be found into the Knucklehead's D64s collection, and once seen that, Knucklehead himself has decided to donate the whole bunch of 91 diskimages.|
Although the Knucklehead's collection is mostly composed by personal data files, classic utilities we already have and commercial games, we got success by individuating further 75 (!) programs tickling our sure interest. They appear to mostly be rare German game cracks we didn't have and German utilities. Actually, it looks to be both difficult and useless to link any of these 75 addons into the database (a facility about tracking'em could be the New Stuff page), so here come some notable ones to cite: a working copy of the very rare Ikari Warriors crack by Alvosoft; the long awaited Elomaker, a CAD editor to draw circuit boards; the real Koenig Arthus ('coz we only got "Koenig Artus", with no 'h') and the real Disk-Eddi (without final 'e'); the rare version of Hamurabi with titles and music; tape version of The Jet 2.0 with perfect depacking that doesn't affect the intro picture; several programs, cracks and prg-lists made by J.A.N. in the pre-MCB era, when he was generally know as "NDBD(G)-Soft" et similia; Indoor Sports cracked by the author of Page-Setter, and Page-Setter itself cracked by KST, whoever he was; Designer-Set, a complete suite of 4 different graphic tools; an alternative conversion of the classic VIC20 type-in Dangerous Pyramid (SPWS); despite its simplicity, Druckertool prints your hires with style; both Print and "Print-Shop"; new versions for Wurmi, several cracks from obscure crackers...and the rest is up to you!
Thank you Knucklehead, our archive has done a big leap once we crossed into your collection ;)
