www.c16.de Updated
Posted by Csabo on 2002-07-31
Today the great German website, www.c16.de has been updated with a cool new layout. They have also removed the JavaScript from the sidebar navigation (which is a welcome change for those of us without JavaScript enabled browsers). The "English Translation" link has also been replaced with the Google translator, which for some reason doesn't work very well. However, you can still use Altavista to view the page in English. Check it out now!


6502 Assembler Plus/4 - sent in from Jim Hehl
Posted by MIK on 2002-07-29
Jim is almost as big as the Plus/4 itself and when you think he infact comes from the other side of the pond (Alaska/USA) to most of us you would not beleive what this dude was doing in the middle of nowhere! Somehow Jim managed to grab the original backup copy of 6502 Assembler Plus/4 from YORK ELECTRONIC RESEARCH who were based in the UK not so long ago! 1995 to be precise :-)

Jim also added 2 txt files (to be found within the download) which should give you an idea of just how lucky he was to get this and to put you in the picture Jim has sent in a small gallery for you to check out of his home land! Check out his gallery here and grab 6502 Assembler from here. Many thanks Jim!!

LINUX Format Magazine takes a look at Yape(lin) and Minus4j
Posted by MIK on 2002-07-12
This months LINUX Format (LXF29 July 2002) they have done an emulation 6502 special covering the Commodore Pet, VIC20 and C16/Plus4. There's 4 pages to be had, one of which covers the plussy side. Our own Attila Grósz author of Yape takes the spotlight here with his continuing support for a Linux version of his Win creation. They offer the full low down on how to get Yape(lin) up and running and say they have plenty of commodore goodies on the DVD. A very proud moment for Attila indeed!

Minus4j also gets covered with a quick run down of how it performs under Linux running on Netscape and for good measure they head the punters our way with a screen grab of my Minus4 Online page. Now, I can't take the credit for that because you don't know the full story of me nagging Mike Dailly to iron out a couple of bugs before I made that page, the honour is all yours Mike :-) The magazine will set you back £6.49 for the DVD version, CD is cheaper. At this time we can't offer the pages in scan format because the mag is still in the shops... (maybe next month). Congratulations Attila and Mike, history in the making!!


Three Hungarian Game Covers!!
Posted by Csabo on 2002-07-11
Attila Komlós, a Plus/4 fan has surprised us with three rare tape cover scans of Hungarian games: Rablo Rulett (Bandit Roulette), Csodalatos Simon (Wonderful Simon) and Urpok (Space Spider)! It's great to see these cool covers once though to be lost... They found an excellent home here will be part of our collection now. Along with the Legicsata cover, we now have 4 covers from Novotrade's vast game collection. Urpok is also the first cover for any game with the letter "U". Many thanks to Attila!
