1K MiniGame Sources Released
Posted by Csabo on 2002-10-30
You can download the full source codes for Csabo's 1K Adventure, Csabo's 1K Memory, Csabo's 1K Racer and Csabo's 1K Tetris. (Links at the bottom of each page.) They are complete with comments and can be compiled with the Plus4IDE. May be interesting for aspiring programmers. No copyrights, you can do whatever you want with them.


SVS Softwares Uploaded
Posted by Csabo on 2002-10-29
SVS has given us yet another present: he sent us more than a dozen of his programs, most of which has never been published on the 'Net. This includes two older games (Helicopter and Nuclear Defense), and lots of utilities.

The addition of these new pieces of software give us the perfect opportunity to unveil yet another new page here on Plus/4 World: New Uploads. This page will always automatically reflect the latest uploaded (or added) softwares. (This is the feature I was referring to in my post.)

Enjoy, I'm almost done anyway.


Software Listings Page Updated
Posted by Csabo on 2002-10-28
Over the weekend our Software Listings Page has received a big facelift. The old page was only able to list by category, and jumping between the categories was a bit difficult (as it was mentioned on the forum.)

The new page addresses this problem. Navigating categories is now much easier (e.g. you can get to "Utilities/Programming" in just two clicks.) Besides listing by category, you can now also view the software database by year and by name - two very useful features we hope. The title of the page has also been fixed, so that it tells you what listing you are on (better for bookmarks, etc.)

Enjoy!


Ultimate ROM Map Is Here!!
Posted by Csabo on 2002-10-24
The big day has finally came. SVS has just released his amazing document, the Ultimate ROM Map. At 262Kb (68K zipped) you can tell that someone has put a lot of effort into it - definitely a one-of-a-kind listing of lots of cool Plus/4 stuff. SVS invites everyone to use this resource, and he also asked that if anyone has anything to contribute, the please do so :-)

Also added to the Tools/Documentation list is Mike Dailly's copyrighted ROM Disassembly. Under Programming Mike's new SNasm has been added, bringing the total number of tools up to 25.


New Club Info
Posted by Csabo on 2002-10-23
Club info #71 is out! Go download it now from the Club Info Download Page. That makes it 18 brand new releases for 2002.

Also today Plus/4 World has reached 2400 programs.


Plus4 World Mailbag #1
Posted by Csabo on 2002-10-21
We have received this nice email from Ninja / The Dreams:

''Hello,

I just happened to find your very nice +4 site. The news stated that you are waiting for a ROM-description by SVS. Well, to shorten this time I wanted to let you know about my coding help-system. :) It is mainly for C64, but I think a number of topics will be useful for +4-coders, too. If you are interested, please have a look at

http://www.the-dreams.de/aay.html

I'd be happy if AAY could also help on the +4-side. 8Bit roxxor! ;)''

It looks very informative, I'm sure some of us can find it useful. Thanks!


Phoenix is Here!
Posted by Csabo on 2002-10-16
Anyone remembers this oldie-but-goldie? No? Well, now you can check it out anyway. Phoenix (not to be confused with Pheenix) is a shoot 'em up from Bohdan Rau of Braintron software - all the way from Poland. The game itself is not that great, but the title screen has a very nice jazzy tune (which has been ripped out and featured in a few demos). That tune kept coming back to me, but I could not find this game anywhere on the net. So here it is, even though it's a crack.

What's even more interesting than the game itself is where we got it from. We have received a huge D64 collection from an old-school scene member, who shall remain nameless for now. Not less than 301 .D64 images (50MB) full of Plus/4 stuff, including lots of games and demos that are not online anywhere at the moment. We will slowly work through this software library and publish the new stuff here, so stay tuned.


Famous Faces #4
Posted by Csabo on 2002-10-15
TLCSkoroTwo more pictures of famous Plus/4 guys have been added to our Faces of the Scene gallery, raising the total number of pictures to 43. This time it's TLC (Levente Hársfalvi) and Skoro (Gábor Varga).

Skoro has been a member of several groups before finally settling down with the Assassins. He has written tons of games (at least 16 by our count), and amazingly, is still active. His latest game was Cross Motor - a 2002 release!

TLC is a "sound-guru", anyone who knows the Plus/4 demo world remembers his amazing high-speed digi players (like the one in his Megademo). One of his best works was his version of the Stormlord-digi (4 channels), which was published in the oh-so-wanted Cracker's Demo III. He is alive and well, but because of work and other real life stuff unfortunately we won't see any Plus/4 releases from him in the near future. Thanks for the pictures, guys!


More Ultimate ROM List News
Posted by Csabo on 2002-10-14
Straight from SVS/Fire comes yet another piece of interesting news regarding his upcoming Ultimate ROM List. Apparently he's working on yet another new section. This time it's the graphic-modes of the Plus/4. What we can tell from the screenshots is that it's yet another set of colourful, detailed set of grid. Click the thumbnail for a bigger screenshot to check it out yourself. Thanks SVS!


Exomizer for Plus/4!!
Posted by Csabo on 2002-10-08
"Ask, And Ye Shall Receive"! There is a great cross-platform cruncher for the C=64, called Exomizer. I (Csabo) decided to write to the creator of this software to ask him if he would consider making a C16/Plus4 version. I even offered my help with Plus4 specific memory locations, etc. You can imagine how surprised I was when in his reply he sent me a working beta version! In the past few weeks, the new version has been finalized. The author, Magnus Lind - hailing from Sweden - has just released Version 1.1 of Exomizer, which now includes C16/Plus4 support!

Just how good is this packer, you ask? Just to give you an idea, it compresses Mercenary (which uses the full memory from $1000 to $FCFF) from 59.1Kb to 33.3Kb! (PUCrunch, which is still an excellent packer managed 33.9Kb).

To download the new Exomizer now, go to our Tools page. And to Magnus, we would like to say "Tack, kompis"


Ultimate ROM List Update!
Posted by Csabo on 2002-10-07
SVS/Fire is still busy working on the Ultimate ROM List. He has currently working on a new section regarding the Plussy's TED chip, complete with color-coded grids. We have our first peek of this groundbreaking document! Click the screenshots on the right for a larger image. Thanks SVS!


cbm264.com Updated!
Posted by Csabo on 2002-10-06
James C has put up some very cool new stuff to his page. First up is the Compute!'s Gazette Plus/4 and C16 disk, volume 1. It covers their software from 1985 and 1986.

Also online are some of Jim Hehl's NTSC-fixed software (mostly patched European games). The games should make anyone with an NTSC Plus/4 only very happy! :-) (Of course the files should be copied off to a disk and enjoyed on the real thing, since emulators presume you're using PAL software.)

Go to www.cbm264.com now!
