New Adventure Game Released!
Posted by Csabo on 2003-06-25
Adventureland +4A freshly converted game is here for your enjoyment... Adventureland +4. It's the first one in Scott Adams' classic adventure series. Converted from the C64 version, this release has pictures to go along with the story. Cool!


A new emulator has been released! - VICE Plus/4
Posted by MIK on 2003-06-15
VICE or Versatile Commodore Emulator has been around for some time and is one of the daddys of 8 bit emulation. As you may have seen it supports a whole range of Commodore 8 bit machines, (C64, C128, VIC20, most PET models and the CBM-II), but as of now and for the first time the team have officially added Commodore Plus/4 support!

Althought it's very early days in the development stage a lot of features are up and running. The core behind this emulator itself can achive a great many things and in time VICE Plus/4 will become a very useful tool to the scene. Already many thousands of users have been enjoying VICE and now with our beloved Plus/4 added all eyes will be looking our way which in turn may help our scene to grow even bigger!

So without delay head on over to the VICE home page for your copy now: http://viceteam.bei.t-online.de/


Exomizer Update!
Posted by Csabo on 2003-06-14
The best cross-platform cruncher just got better. Magnus Lind has sent us word that today he has released the V1.1.2 version of Exomizer. This update (among other things) now has a "-n" option, which removes the 'decruncher effect'. Download the update and see the included documentation for more details (and don't forget that it comes with full source!). Thanks Magnus!


6 New TAPs!
Posted by Csabo on 2003-06-13
LegicsataCrown sent in 6 new TAP images to go along with the covers he scanned. They include the Hungarian user tapes 3+1 Magyarul, Bevezetés a Basic Nyelvbe and Bemutató Programcsomag. We also have three games: Csodálatos Simon, Super Cobra. And finally, as you can see from the screenshot, we also have Légicsata! :-) (This should make some folks very happy!) Thanks, Crown!


New Release From Unlimited!
Posted by Csabo on 2003-06-12
Vision 2003Mr. Museum of Unlimited has sent us word of their new release, Vision 2003 Pictures! This disk side picture show lets you take a peek into the German Commodore scene: the pictures were taken at Vision 2003 (obviously ;-). Read the included note file to find out more about the pictures. Thanks to Michael for the news!


YAPE V0.48 is Out!
Posted by Csabo on 2003-06-11
YAPE running Cracker's Demo 2The new YAPE is here! This version emulates our beloved machine even better: almost all FLI effects are perfectly emulated (see the screenshot on the left, the Muffbusters part from Cracker's Demo 2, sadly, their last work on the plussy). But even some of the ClassiX are better: who likes Terra Nova or Paperboy? ;-) So stop reading now and head on over to download your copy!


New Graphics Converter: DFliConv!
Posted by Csabo on 2003-06-11
bubis has released his DFliConv - Double Line FLI Converter. With this tool, you can convert any JPG or GIF from your PC to a Plus/4 image! Thanks to the FLI effect, this routine can display more colors per character than the regular graphics modes. The bottom line is: it looks amazing, but we'll just let this picture speak a thousand words. (Yes, your C= can really display this.)
SAMPLE


New Skoro Releases!
Posted by Csabo on 2003-06-11
BarsIt's a beautiful day, and we've received a brand new game for the Commodore Plus/4. Simply titled Bars, from the hands of Skoro of Assassins. It's a nice logical game, a bit like Tetris. High quality work, as always. The new issue of Mini News is also out, this one is Mini News 08. The third diskmag, that's still alive! (The other two are Club Info and Lone News.) It's in Hungarian, so get your dictionaries, Luca ;-) Everyone should check it out though, at least to read the greetings in the scroll!


Mega Cover Update!
Posted by Csabo on 2003-06-10
The covers just keep arriving... In fact, some of them were sent in by more than one person (in this case, we kept the one with the best quality). So today brings 32 new covers for 17 different classic games, some of from the stash of Lando himself ;-)

From Lando: Aliens (huge!), Auto Zone, Blockbusters +4, Dark Tower, Dirty Den, Olympic Skier, Pacmania, Survivors, Treasure Hunter, Varmit, Williamsburg Adventure.

From Mosh: Escape From Pulsar 7, Salvage, The Time Machine, The Wizard of Akyrz, Waxworks.

From Ulysses777: Video Classics. We also have a TAP version of this game! He sent in quite a few more covers, but we ran out of time for today. Stay tuned!


Two Classic Games!
Posted by Csabo on 2003-06-07
Two Classic GamesOne could say that this latest submission from Ulysses777 closes the final chapter of Jet Set Willy. We have the cover of Two Classic Games, a compilation release from MicroValue. MicroValue was apparently a TyneSoft label, although to date this is the only thing from them that we know of. The compilation has Ian Botham's Test Match and Jet Set Willy on it. So along with the cover, our friend submitted a TAP version of the game.

Now even those of us who never owned an original copy can enjoy it to the fullest: Read the back cover for the story, and load the TAP version to play the true original. Thanks Ulysses777, and enjoy!


New Covers From Crown!
Posted by Csabo on 2003-06-06
VICE guru Crown has taken the time to scan a few tape covers from this collection. These are from the Hungarian side of the C16 / Plus4 releases. Yes, that means Novotrade Magyarország. We have 13 covers out of the 63 releases listed under their name. We've also received a better quality version of Csodalatos Simon and even the back cover of Legicsata. Many thanks! Enjoy!


Ninja is Back!
Posted by Csabo on 2003-06-05
Ninja is Back...to the scene, and he has released a brand new demo, called Ninja is Back! Marking the 12th release of 2003, this is already the second demo from Gentlemen Software. It's nice to see that people are active again, let's hope that more folks will follow!


Three New Maps!
Posted by Csabo on 2003-06-05
XCellor8Noro sure hasn't been sleeping, as we've just received another beauty of a map from him. It's for XCellor8, a classic Patrick Strassen game. (For non-native speakers of the English language: if you've ever wondered about the title of this game, it spells out "accelerate".) XCellor8 has very cool futuristic looking cover artwork, and it's one of the few games where the in-game graphics lives up to the cover. Very nice work!

Also a Future Shock and Jet Set Willy map from Csabo. Enjoy!


Future Knight Map!
Posted by Csabo on 2003-06-04
Future KnightA brand new addition has arrived today to join our collection of game maps. This one is for Future Knight, created by Noro! It's his 14th map.

If you've previously dismissed this game as just another brainless platformer, then you'll be surprised. There's more to this game! It's just that some of the things you're supposed to figure out aren't at all obvious... Please note that the map contains the solution.

Very nice work, Noro! Click here to download the map.


Software Updates
Posted by Csabo on 2003-06-03
István Bozsik sent us and updated version of his tool Plus4Lst. V1.1 adds one very cool feature: all line numbers in GOTO, GOSUB, etc. statements are converted into hyperlinks. This makes debugging basic programs even easier!

TLC has made some minor updates to the documentation of TLCPlay. (Note: There is a demosong created with this player floating around. The demosong uses a 4x player and it sounds, well, just amazing. This release of TLCPlay is 99% identical to the one used in the demosong, so it's the real thing. Look in the source code of DRIVER.ASM and uncomment the commented lines to create your own 4x player.)

Lavina sent in some rarities: Bosszúvágy, Ürkaland and an original copy of Imagine/UTG. Finally we have a picture of Steve from SCN. (Thanks, Unreal!)
