Another Novotrade TAP!
Posted by Csabo on 2003-02-17
Kalandozás a Fizikában (Adventures in Physics) is here! Once again out of nowhere we bring you the whole nine yards for this Novotrade release: the TAP file, the PRG version, the cover scan, the cover inlay scan, plus author and price info! This is the second educational title from Novotrade in Physics. Thanks to Lacus for all this!


TrailblazerDC Beta 1 released.
Posted by MIK on 2003-02-16
Reaper2k2 ported this classic over to the Sega Dreamcast and was released FEB 13th, but FEB 14th he decided to quit the Dreamcast scene due to several issues placed upon him by different members of the dcemulation forums. Reaper decided to delete everything he had, including his websites in response to this. All this and more can be found over at: http://www.dcemulation.com/

Hoping no one minds we hold a copy of his release here just for safe keeping, and for those that may not get the chance to see it I've also kept a screen grab for future reference.



Vegas Jackpot C16 or 16k only in TAP format!
Posted by MIK on 2003-02-12
The following below was taken from our Forum posted by Ulysses777:

This is a TAP that I made from my own copy of Vegas Jackpot, which, unlike the one on this site, works only on a standard C16/C116. When run on a Plus4/C16+64K, it suffers the same corrupted graphics problems as Rockman, Tower of Evil etc.

I haven't seen this version available anywhere for download, so I thought someone might be interested in it


All we can say is wow! We are more than pleased to see it which is something unique in itself! If you check out what Csabo has to say as a reply you can find out why and how along with the difference of the Vegas Jackpot TAP I created some time ago! Many thanks to Ulysses for bringing this to our attention!


Out on a Limb.tap ?
Posted by MIK on 2003-02-10
out on a limbToday was meant to be a special day and something that I'd been looking forward to for a very long time. However things have just been turned upside down in world of C16/Plus4 TAP images. I have just found out that a TAP of Out on a Limb has been uploaded to www.funet.fi that is unique to VICE at this time, meaning it will only run using the as yet to be released version of VICE Plus/4.


But for the books, today we have added here at Plus4 World a working version of Out on a Limb that not only works with YAPE, but with Artifex and VICE too!!

So today is indeed a cool day, but in the mean time I'm still left wondering who's right and who's wrong and where are these hidden bugs in the TAP format comming from? In gerneral this isn't an issue at all, but with the problems of 1/2 wav and the very rare Turbos as used by Out on the Limb we can hope we are doing the right thing. Anyways enough of the chit chat because it's time to grab one of the coolest tap images you could ever wish to find and that my friends is waiting for you right HERE!

I would also like to thank Attila for his very kind help in making this TAP available to you, without his support it would not be here now. Cheers buddy! :-)


New Yape, new homepage!!
Posted by Csabo on 2003-02-09
Attila author of Yape has released version 0.43 today! The new version features completely rewritten and enhanced 1551 emulation with more bug fixes along the way although some many not of been noted. But we can tell you that The Catacombs (ADV.) now displays perfect! As always the full story can be found on the Yape homepage.

Please note: Yape is now being servered to you by an all new host so don't forget to make a note of the new address below.

Westfront Correction
Posted by Csabo on 2003-02-07
It looks like we had some confusion about Dunric's game(s): Westfront. It turns out that he has two games that work on the Plus/4: Westfront 64 and Westfront to Apse II. The latter one also works on the C128. The version I uploaded yesterday turned out to be the C64/C128 version, so if you downloaded that please download the correct files again. Visit Dunric's C16 page for more details.


Hidra Cover Added!
Posted by Csabo on 2003-02-07
Cover of HidraThe cover for this Novotrade release game has just been added! It originally sold for 290 HUF (today that's the equivalent of peanuts). It looks like they didn't spend much on the design artwork, since the cassette cover is made up of company logos and a screenshot! Still it's a cool piece to be added to our rapidly growing collection. Not only do we have the cover, but also the cassette inlay (in Hungarian - now all we need is someone to translate it). Thanks to Lacus for this cover!


Merlin's Quest and Westfront +4!!!
Posted by Csabo on 2003-02-06
Merlin's Quest Screenshot (Close-up)Breaking news! I have just received in the mail about an hour ago a package from Dunric (Paul Panks). He was kind enough to send me a copy of his two games: Merlin's Quest and Westfront +4! The first thing I did with them was backed up and uploaded the D64 images. Two brand new adventures for you to play with. (They work on the real machine, but the emulators might have a problem with them.) Check 'em out now!

Big thanks to Dunric for sending me these cool programs!


More New Stuff
Posted by Csabo on 2003-02-05
King Size Daten Bank Cover ImageWe may be running out of ideas for news item titles, but we have lots of cool stuff that has just been added. First up is two new covers from Pawel. King Soft Daten Bank is a German database application. (All we need now is the program itself...) He has also sent us the Kingsoft release cassette cover for Space Pilot. This one too bears the Kingsoft logo, and is complete with German language instructions.

Fizikai Osszefuggesek Cover ImageNext we have our first Novotrade TAPs added (from Lacus of course). Fizikai Összefüggések (Relationships in Physics) was intended for elementary school grades 6-8. We have the .TAP, the prg version, the original cover, the cover inlay and even the original price! This rare proggie originally sold for 398 HUF (Hungarian Forints). With the current rate, that's about 1.7 USD or one pound. Although back in the day, the Forint was stronger... Anyway, where did this info come from? Believe it or not, but Lacus got his hands on an original Novotrade price list! (Coming soon smiley)


RetroChat Forums
Posted by MIK on 2003-02-04
If you are intrested in the wider scene of emulation and retrogaming from the 80's, then head on over to www.retrochat.com which is a forum dedicated to the yesteryear of computing and covers a wide range of machines.

Thanks to the webmaster for this news.


One very rare cover - Out on a Limb!
Posted by MIK on 2003-02-04
Out on a LimbPlus/4 World are proud to present the cover and instructions to one of the best loved games of 1984 Out on a Limb!

Although there are a number of cracks available for this cool game, we are in the meantime working on getting an original TAP image made. The game does however use one of the worst turbos ever created. Being a 3 part multi-loader, we can only hope to pull the impossible off! If that happens you'll be the first to find out here at Plus/4 World, so stay tuned!


2 Awesome Anco Advertisements from 1986!
Posted by MIK on 2003-02-03
These will make your eyes pop! The adverts are just over 16 years old and both are from one of the greatest games ever created for C16/Plus4 which is Winter Events.

You can tell Anco were keen to show this game off as the first of the adverts has 3 screen shots which were beta screens as seen from the Winter Demo and inside cover found on the Anco's release of Space Pilot.

The second of the 2 adverts which was printed 3 months later is more upto date and having the final release version of screen shots, but take a closer look at the Down Hill event! You can only imagine that Udo Gertz was in the final stage of development as the art work for this very advert would of been created the month before this advert would of gone too press, (not forgetting you got the September issue in August). And if I remember correct it was around September 1986 I got my hands of this awesome game


The Catacombs (ADV.) has been made available!
Posted by MIK on 2003-02-02
The CatacombsAfter a number of hours of testing on different machine setups and emulators we finally agreed to release this crack as it is which was created by Floppy Robby! The crack itself is fine, but has been made to work with a machine using 16k of memory. It will run on a machine above 16k so please read there "Description" found on The Catacombs page for the full story.

Users of emualtion may find the game displaying with the wrong character set, (upper and lower case are round the wrong way) and plans to get this small bug fixed with YAPE are already on the cards.

And last of all we would like to thank Marco Polo who has made this game available for downloading even though he may not know it.
