Welcome to Plus/4 World!
Arok #16 Party Releases!
Posted by Csabo on 2014-07-20
The Arok 2014 party has wound down, the competitions are over, and we have the releases! Here they are:

In the graphics compo, Grass released Mechfight and Chronos released Partyland Revisited. Unreal created a C64 graphics, which came in first (a Plus/4 version coming soon)! Results are now up.

In the wild compo, BSZ and Stinky of NST presented something extraordinary: 50 fps animation and 12 bit music on a Plus/4, with the help of some special hardware. It's called Evo Lution, check the video on YouTube!

In the demo competition, there were only two entries: Afterglow by Csio/Absence and a C64 invitation intro. Unsurprisingly, the Plus/4 entry won :-) Congrats to the authors! The current release is only a party version, so we're hoping to see a full release soon.

PLUS-Comp Found!
Posted by Csabo on 2014-07-16
PLUS-CompThis is just a quick note that a long time missing utility, PLUS-Comp has been found. (It was on the B side of Pluvi 32, so, in a way we've already had it on our site all this time...) It's a BASIC to Machine Language compiler, similar to AustroSpeed (or the much lesser used Micro-BASIC-Compiler). In the past there have been some interest about these (as well as some very dedicated reverse engineering efforts), so it's probably worth a quick mention. Check it out if you're interested!

ShackShack? No, not the English word meaning "a roughly built hut or cabin", but rather a Swedish word which translates to Chess. After releasing another five-letter, one-syllable converted game (Whack) earlier this year, Gaia is back with a new conversion called Shack. It's a Swedish chess program converted from Commodore 64 that runs on 64K machines. It has adjustable difficulty setting (from 1-9), load/save state option and even undo. If you feel like playing a round, fire it up and see if you can beat the computer! Check it out and enjoy!

Notepad+4Litwr just released a new text-editor for the Commodore Plus/4 called Notepad+4. The editor can use the same keyboard combinations as the default BASIC editor can. It can also load and save SEQ files, has a find function as well. The disk contains the Austrospeed compiled version, the original BASIC, documentation and example files.

Litwr suggests that it can be thought of as a complement SVS-Calc, together they form the perfect Office :-)

Indoor Soccer Brasil Edition!
Posted by Csabo on 2014-07-08
Indoor Soccer Brasil Edition!There has been so much talk about the FIFA World Cup on our forums that Chronos decided to do do something about it: he just released Indoor Soccer Brasil Edition! It's a dressed up version of Indoor Soccer: play as either Germany or Brazil in 1 or 2 player modes. For those who haven't seen the match yet, I won't spoil it :-) Anyway, enjoy the game!
