Lemuria + One Cover!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-01-31
LemuriaPower PackHave you ever played Lemuria on your C16 or Plus/4? Most likely not, as it is a rare German text adventure that was just sent in by Plus4Vampyre. We have the cover scans and the D64 image for this game (as it is disk-based). It's not the traditional adventure, the 'map' seems to be randomly generated every time you run the game. Grab that German dictionary and check it out anyway. The other new cover is for Anco Power Pack which is something rare to say the least as the UK company have shipped thier own label into Germany. They crammed no less than 10 games into this compilation. We have the disk cover scanned. With these additions we close the first month of 2004 at 73% cover completion, the highest so far.


New VICE Version Released!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-01-30
Version 1.4 of the Versatile Commodore Emulator has been released today. Unfortunately there were no changes in the Plus/4 emulation, but audio and video can be saved into AVI files. Head on over to viceteam.org to download your updated copy.

Posted by Csabo on 2004-01-28
We've just got this Skoro release in the mail. However, before you let out that sigh of relief that it's the new year's first release, look again: it's from last december (containing holiday and new year's greetings). While it's good to read this (for Hungarian speakers at least), the thought in the back of our minds that this month will pass without a single new Plus/4 release is not a pleasant one. Come on scene, do something!


3 More New Covers!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-01-26
Math Games and Word ProblemsMusic MasterTurbo PlusThis time we're adding Crown's cover scan to our collection. He has three new ones for us, starting with Math Games and Word Problems. This release also has its instructions booklet scanned. The other two covers are Kingsoft releases: Music Master and Turbo Plus. Beware, these scans are very large! Many thanks for these!


More TAP files and Cover scans!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-01-22
King Size Turbo TapeRobcom Alignment SystemUlysses777 continues to send us more great stuff, here's what today's addition brings us: Original TAP files for Spiderman, The Incredible Hulk, Purple Turtles, Autobahn and Dark Tower. The last two are C16 only tapes. For Hulk, he has also scanned the HUGE! cover instructions, beware, this single image is 280KB.

Two more tape-related programs have been added as well: King Size Turbo Tape, a tape turbo, and Robcom Alignment System. Both are from Robtek. The second utility is yet another tape head adjustment package, complete with instructions in 4 languages. As the double covers show, the company's name was Robcom originally, before they changed it to Robtek. Thanks to Ulysses for these! Enjoy!


Souvenir from Szeged
Posted by Luca on 2004-01-19
SzegedBetter latter than never! Here you can find some photos taken during the nice weekend at Szeged (4ever03 rules!), most of them taken walking in the city. I hope these pictures will push you to join us (maybe!) at the 4ever04!


5 Rare Scans from Plus4Vampyre!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-01-19
Zone ControlCentral CommandRaiderTwin Kingdom ValleyRobin To The Rescue/Monkey Magic

Yes, that's right, let's get this week started with pretty coverscans of oldie-but-goldie Commodore 16 games. We have two brand new scans for Zone Control and Central Command, these are from Paxman Promotions. They are consistent with the other Paxman release "quality": the Zone Control tape apparently has a "Zonal Control" label, and Central Command is Control Command on the cover.

Next up is a Reelax release of Raider. Yup, that's the third cover for the game... We also have a very rare "staircase artwork" cover for Twin Kingdom Valley. On other platforms the two different cover artworks were known to exist for this game, but this is the first time we see it for the C16. Finally another rare compilation tape from Ozisoft: Robin To The Rescue/Monkey Magic. It has those two (in)famous games on it... Very cool stuff, thanks to Plus4Vampyre once again!


Read about 4ever03...in English!

Lunacy 9Read the party emotions from the organizers directly! Thanks to Lavina's translation, Ninja/GS released the english translated version of Lunacy 9! You can't miss it, otherwise...get outta here!


2 Very Rare Cover Scans!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-01-15
Tom Thumb - Kingsoft ReleaseMonkey Magic - Micro Design ReleaseSidius is on a roll! The second pack from him this week may be small, but they are interesting nevertheless. We have the German language Kingsoft release of Tom Thumb! The game is labelled simply Tom, and as the cover sticker states, this release had the C16, C64 and VIC-20 games on it! We're very happy to finally see this cover in the collection. The second scan is for Monkey Magic. We have already discussed the fact that some Solar Software releases (maybe all?) have alternative covers, and this is such a cover too. What makes it interesting, is the label: Micro Design. The style, layout and even the company address confirms that this is infact Solar Software. Perhaps it was their re-release label? Hard to tell from just one cover. The more we dig the more we find... Thanks to Sidius for these!


8 New Cover Scans!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-01-13
Sidius surprised us with 8 more very cool and sought after covers. Well, that's definitely a pleasant surprise :-) First we have two Tynesoft covers: Battle Star and Music Synthesiser. (Note that on the latter cover they have three different variations on the name of this program... Which we are missing, by the way.) Jetbrix was the final missing piece from the Gremlin Graphics cover collection, and we now have it! The Anirog cover collection is also complete, with the addition of the last two covers: Las Vegas and Minipedes! Nice going, but we have more. Two Kingsoft compilation releases were also added: Plus-Paket II and Kingsoft Sport Show. And finally we have the cover scan for World Cup Carnival. It's big and beautiful, chock-full of official football logos and emblems: the whole cover screams: buy me. Which was of course necessary, because as we know, behind all the fancy stuff it's just the same old World Cup. Many thanks to Sidius for these scans!

RAP4 is Here!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-01-12
This will blow your mind... Ulysses777 found an old commercial software from 1988 called RAP4 - The Remote Audio Processor. It's a full blown sampler, sample editor, sequencer and music synth. The interface is point-and-click, complete with pull down menus and dialog boxes. We also have the 70-odd page manual fully scanned available here. RAP4 can grab samples from the datasette or an interface referred to as 'TTL4 Interface'. Ulysses777 has kindly created a schematic drawing of this as well. The software even has a basic extension, so that you can use your samples or tunes created with the editor in basic. We'd like to strees that this is an extremely rare find. All we can say is: Wow!... Definitely check it out, there's a lot to play around with here.


YAPE 0.54 is Here!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-01-09
Gaia has released a new version of his Commodore Plus/4 Emulator, YAPE. This release brings some very important additions to the emulation:
  • true disk rotation emulation
  • full write support in CPU level 1541 and 1551 drive emulation
  • TED and SID sound now selectable at the same time

This means that disk-based games that save information (like Bard's Tale III) now really do work, not just run. What are you waiting for? Go download it now!


C16 Showcase Booklet Scanned
Posted by Csabo on 2004-01-07
Gaia scanned the instructions booklet that came with The Commodore 16 Showcase. All 8 pages can be viewed in our Publications Section here. The links between hardware bundles and software are now completely in place, so the above mentioned tape (or games like Exorcist) will have a link to the hardware bundles in which they appeared. Thanks to Gaia for the scan!


Ultimate ROM Map Updated!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-01-05
SVS of Fire released version 1.1 of his Ultimate Rom Map. About 40 new addresses were added, most importantly addresses related to the 1551, cartridge, and I/O. The new ZIP file is 72.7 Kb. As usual, if you have any comments or ideas, email the author. Go download this great tool right now!


9 New Covers!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-01-05
Emerald MineEmerald Mine IIKarate KingPfad Im DschungelDas Rätsel Der 7. KolonieOperation Red MoonFlight Path 737The Chip FactoryFlight Zero-One-Five
OMG! Plus4Vampyre amazed us with another huge cover scan pack with many rare and long awaited items. We have 5 new Kingsoft covers: Emerald Mine, Emerald Mine II, Karate King, Pfad Im Dschungel and Das Rätsel Der 7. Kolonie. Keep in mind, that we are actually missing the games Emerald Mine and Pfad Im Dschungel. Next we have Operation Red Moon from Yes! Software, which would have been their last missing cover. But as we found out, Starlite 1 is also a commercial release from them, and we don't have that cover yet, so the search is back on. We finally have Flight Path 737 from Anirog. Two more rare ones left: Audiogenic's The Chip Factory and Flight Simulator Zero 15, which is actually a re-release of Flight Zero-One-Five. Many thanks to Plus4Vampyre for these outstanding covers!


8 New Adventure TAP files!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-01-04
We are happy to announce that the new year starts with a very nice surprise: 8 TAP files from various adventures (finally) made their way to us. The bombshell: Voodoo Castle and Buckaroo Banzai actually do exists and were commercially published on our little platform! These two are part of the Scott Adams Adventures, and came on the Scott Adams Scoops compilation. The other two games on the tape are Pirate Adventure C16 and Strange Odyssey C16. We had to open separate records for these, since they are a different implementation as their cartridge counterparts. (The easiest way to tell them apart is the black vs. white screen background color.)

Mosh has also sent us the 4 more TAP files from the Mysterious Adventures series. These are the original, C16 text only versions. Escape From Pulsar 7 and The Time Machine are available as TAP or PRG for the first time anywhere! The other two TAPs are forWaxworks and Feasibility Experiment. Many thanks to Mosh for these!
