Lone News 15: party report issue!
Posted by Luca on 2003-11-29
ln15Did you miss the 4ever03 party in Szeged? Gain much much much more anger reading about people and facts involved: paprika fishes, astonishing previews, neoromanic monuments, sidcard projects, demo compo charts, hungarian pizzas... All this and more in the 15th issue of Lone News! Miss it at your own risk!


Fire Ant Single Cover!
Posted by Csabo on 2003-11-27
Fire AntSidius contributed to our CBM collection with the single release cover of Fire Ant. What a nice classic game, much talked about, especially when people are mentioning their first memories with computer games. The cover artwork is very nice, and we are indeed happy to have this in our collection. We now have single cover versions of 7 out of the 10 tapes. We may be soon getting the one for Treasure Island, but that still leaves Icicle Works (of all games!) and Number Builder. Thanks to Sidius!


New Covers and TAPs
Posted by Csabo on 2003-11-25
Trojan Light PenSandcastles and ParamathsMayhemUlysses777 brings us this week's first update. We now have the wholewave TAP of Enigma, TAP files for Munch It and Climb It (for each there is a C16 only version), a turbo loader TAP for ACE 16. We have some new covers as well. First up is a single box release of C16 Classics I. That's right - it seems that besides the cool two tape release, Gremlin also had this one, all 4 games on one tape. We have the single release cover for Mayhem (which still leaves a few missing from our CBM collection). Next up is the cover (and TAPs) for Sandcastles and Paramaths, a compilation tape. Finally we have the box scans, TAP files and instruction scans for Trojan Light Pen. Excellet stuff, respects to Ulysses!


A Few Leftover Covers
Posted by Csabo on 2003-11-19
Today three cover scans were added to our collection. These were submitted quite a while ago, but they just "slipped through the cracks". Anyway, you can now enjoy the covers for 4 in 1 Hit Pak (from Lando), Plus-Paket 16 (from Mermaid) and the cartridge box cover for Viduzzles (from Ulysses777). Thanks guys!

Cover Scans from Ulysses
Posted by Csabo on 2003-11-13
Ulysses777 is here again with his new pack of expertly scanned covers! We start off with the box scans of C16 Tutor, the keyboard tutorial cartridge. Next we have Auriga cover. "Wait a minute, didn't we just add that yesterday?" - you may be asking. If you're not asking that then start paying attention! We did in fact add one Auriga cover, but this one is different, actually an earlier release. Why are there two different covers - that's a mystery. Next we have four new covers for CBM released games, but this time for the single releases. The games are Crazy Golf, Harbour Attack, Number Chaser and Space Sweep/Invaders. The trend seems to be that each of the 10 tapes released with the Commodore Plus/4 Bundle had a bundle cover (the plain one) and a single release cover for the shops. This stuff is so cool, that we compiled a little list of these covers and added it to the CBM page, check it out here. So we are still looking for 5 more of these single release covers (there's one for Fire Ant, but it's bad quality) - provided that they exists... Many thanks to Ulysses for his continued support of our site!

YAPE 0.53 is here!
Posted by Csabo on 2003-11-13
YAPE running New FLIFaster, better, more accurate. It's hard to believe that the new release of our beloved Commodore Plus/4 Emulator for the PC achieved all of those. True PAL Emulation is here, a much asked-for feature. Now you can enjoy demos like QuestionMark in all their glory. On the speed-front, the new YAPE no longer renders skipped frames, which means switching to a lower FPS will give an even bigger performance increase on older computers. Plus tons of bugfixes and neat little additions as usual... It's time to visit:


Crown's Covers!
Posted by Csabo on 2003-11-12
Good news, cover-lovers: you have 7 more beautiful covers for those classic Commodore 16 programs that you can admire. Crown sent in a very cool scan pack for the following games: 3D Time Trek, Auriga, Ghost Town(!), Star Commander, Tom Thumb(!) and Triple Decker 7. This last came with 5 additional pages with multi-language instructions, available here. The 7th cover is for the Paintbox graphics-utility from Kingsoft. Check 'em out and enjoy!

Besides the covers, our friend also created some TAPs for Sports 4, Star Commander and Triple Decker 7. Many thanks to Crown for these!



Mermaid's Covers!
Posted by Csabo on 2003-11-11
Mega ZapRaiderFootball ManagerThis time it's the multi-talented Mermaid sent us some covers. Let's get right into it: We have Razorsoft's Mega Zap and Raider covers. For Raider, it's an alternative cover, as we have another one as well. The third one we added today is the original release cover for Football Manager. There are a few more she sent, but they will take a while to be properly cut up and stuff, so this is just for starters! Many thanks to Mermaid for the covers.


PixelShop V1.01 Released!
Posted by Csabo on 2003-11-10
The new version of PixelShop is here. The biggest addition to this cross-platform graphics package is the support for the FLI graphic mode. Unfortunately the old read-me file is gone, and all we get is a link to AbcuG's website, which at the moment appears to be empty (hopefully it will be online soon). Graphicians, grab your mouse (or keyboard) and let's see some nice FLI pictures! Cheers AbcuG!


Two Hungarian Game Covers!
Posted by Csabo on 2003-11-10
Who's that angry man with the knife? Well, we have received a very rare cover scan! It's for the Hungarian game The Invincible (A Legy§zhetetlen). Written by The Mad, you know it uses his trademark extended border. The game itself is a platformer: you have to make up the word Invincible by finding each of the letters (in order!) and breaking them up in a knock-out style sub game. Anyway, it's one of those covers that we though we'd never see again... But Pavel came to the rescue. We also added a very high quality replacement for the Legicsata cover, courtesy of Lacus. Thanks, guys!


New Kingsoft Cover
Posted by Csabo on 2003-11-08
Legende Im Eis Cover scanOur database now correctly lists Legende Im Eis (Legend at Ice) as a commercial Kingsoft release from 1986. We have found an original copy of this game, hence the new cover scan. It's the usual plain-blue-Kingsoft-style. The game itself is German language graphical adventure written in Basic. Having a rainy afternoon this weekend? Then it's time to grab your German dictionary (or use this one), and let the adventuring begin! Many thanks to Crown for supplying the game information and the cover.


PixelShop 1.0 Released
Posted by Csabo on 2003-11-05
Head on over to AbcuG's new homepage at abcug.freeweb.hu. The previous cool, unique, platform-related name (Plus4Shop) got changed to a generic one which gets you 10,000 Google hits (PixelShop). Nevertheless, it's good to see this project released, so all the graphicians can get working!


Zoom4Gr Released!
Posted by Csabo on 2003-11-05
Zoom4Gr ExampleProgrammers, listen up! Papa bubis has released Zoom4Gr, a package supporting the Zoom4 graphic mode. (Call it QFLI - Quadruple line FLI - if you like.) Let's you color each pixel at 80*50 resolution. A very cool example effect is included. Most importantly the source is included as well, ready for you to explore it or use it in your own demos. Cheers bubis!


New SIDCard in the Works!
Posted by Csabo on 2003-11-05
Good news everyone! Mr. Museum has sent us word that there is a new - and yet to be named - SIDcard currently in development as of 2003 November. The status of the card: it actually works! :-) (Although not perfectly.) The card is being developed by C16DOC/Unlimited (the brother of Mr. Museum). The final revision will be put directly on the TED Chip, as it's a internal card. That's all the info we know so far, and it sounds very promising!
