5 Cover Scans From Crown!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-02-28
Super GranCrown brings up a new pack of high quality cover scans for the site. First up we have two replacements Auf Wiedersehen Monty and Panic Penguin. Thai Boxing now also has the definitive covers: front/back in high quality, separate UK and German releases. The others are brand new: we now have a Catacombs cover and for the first time an original TAP. This (unlike the cracked version) lets you select which character you want to play. And last but not least we have the scans and the TAP file for Super Gran. Thanks to Crown for these! Enjoy!


The First Releases Arrive!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-02-28
The wait is finally over, the first brand new pieces of software finally made their way to Plus/4 World. Cool Pod and Summerjam are two digi demos by Hifi/TLT (who else?). They sample music from P.O.D. and The Underdog Project, respectively. This is hopefully the first in the long line of new demos, games and utilities that are to come this year. Cheers to TLT for keeping the scene alive!


Retro Gamer Issue Two - Out Now!!
Posted by MIK on 2004-02-28
Retro Gamer It's not every day you find a magazine that contains pure retro gaming content and it's here were Retro Gamer aims to be the UK's first regular gaming title dedicated to vintage video games. I first found out about this new magazine last month. Being a printer I learned that a printing company called Polestar Colchester had won a 40,000 print run of Retro Gamer, that being issue 1 at the time. From what I can tell issue one was deep with Sepcturm and Mastertronic related features and knowing it was a 40,000 run the chances of finding it would be impossible sadly. :-(

Anyways, I have issue 2 here in my hands and it looks very cool indeed. As you expect it covers all kinds of machines and if they can they share the same topics with all the platforms that were graced with the same software such as starting out collecting with a title we all know as Manic Miner along with its follow ups. Here they list the selling price for no less than 14 machines! Manic Miner for C16/Plus4 came in at £3-£5 which is fair I would say. Issue 2 has a big section devoted to Commodore and yes even the C16/C116 and Plus4 made its way in the mag! Not too much was said but enough to keep you happy with machine comments for C16, "With 16k of RAM, it is remarkable that this machine survived" and for the Plus4, "The Plus/4 was a modest success, even with a little dedicated software base". Those were the last liners but at least they never put us down as so many have done in the past due to ignornace of not knowing anything about our system at all. They even have a fun and intresting wirte up about, "Eight shades of black". 127 or 128 colours?

Last of all I found that these nice people also added a Commodore Web Resourse page with 3 links on offer for our system with those being, www.plus4.org, www.xeo3.com and lastly our good selfs here at Plus4 World. So if you've landed here because of Retro Gamer then a warm welcome to you!

I just might have to subscribe and keep a close eye on any other C16/Plus4 installments. If you fancy grabbing a copy for yourselves then head on over to www.livepublishing.co.uk and pop your name down for one.


3 More Cover Scans!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-02-26
Power Pack (Audiogenic)Two To OneEuropean GamesWe've got a nice surprise in the mail from Rüdiger. He wanted to know if we would be interested in a few of his scans to add to our collection. We all know the answer to that! :-) Let's see the new goodies: first up is European Games Disc Cover from Tynesoft. One thing to note about this is that the cover artwork is almost identical to the cassette version, except the athlete's right arm is down instead of up. Could there be a deeper meaning to this? While you all come up with your own conspiration theories, let's continue the list. Next up is Two To One from Kingsoft. We believe this to be the last commercial game released in the golden days. Last but not least, we have a new cover scans for a previously unlisted Audiogenic compilation release: Power Pack. Very cool new stuff! Many thanks to our new cover-supplier for these! Enjoy!


German Cover Scans!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-02-22
Text C16SteinzeitSidius - hailing from Berlin - sent us todays new cover scans. First up is Stone-Castle release #5: Steinzeit (that means Stone Age). He also sent us perfect quality replacements for Safari and Gärtner.

Some of you may have noticed that Vokabel C16, a previously unknown piece of software was added not too long ago. (All we have currently is a poor quality scan, which was hunted down on ebay by Crown, btw.) While we still don't know much about this particular release, Sidius did send us yet another new coverscan: Text C16. Can a software title be any more generic? Anywho, Text C16 is apparently a powerful word-processor for the good old Commdore 16, released by CSJ - Computersoft Jonigk, and produced by RushWare. The design on these two cover scans are almost identical, so Vokabel C16 could be a CSJ or a RushWare release. Of course it would be good to have the actual programs as well, not to mention all the Stone-Castle games. Thanks to Sidius for this cool stuff! Enjoy!


New Cover Scans!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-02-21
Fire-GalaxyWater Grand PrixKillapedeOur cover scan collection of commercial C16 & Plus/4 software is growing by the minute, and the race is on to grab those hard-to-find covers. This time Crown brought us a pack of covers, among them a few firsts. We now have Fire-Galaxy from Kingsoft and Water Grand Prix from Tynesoft, both complete with TAP files. We also have the first release cover of Killapede from Players. As we have seen with Auriga, they had two different cassette cover artworks for some releases, and now Killapede is one of those. Perhaps there were more? Crown also send us a full size cover scan of Space Pilot, and separate TAP files for the game and Winter Demo.

Finally we have the scan of Compute Mit Sonderheft, which was a special edition tape released with this German language magazine. Hopefully more info on this (and progam files) will follow. Thanks to Crown for this excellent stuff!


Mega Mercenary Update!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-02-19
Mercenary Compendium EditionMercenary - Escape From TargThe Second CityWe now have all the Mercenary material you could ever hope for! Ulysses777 sent us these goodies. Let's see then: a replacement cover for both Mercenary games (Mercenary and The Second City). For the original Mercenary, we have an alternative cover as well, which (as the label says) had both the C64 and Plus/4 version on it. Last but not least comes the box covers of a previously unlisted release: Mercenary Compendium Edition. This compilation has both games, plus the Targ Survival Kit and a novelette called "Interlude on Targ". These latter two were added to the Publications section, which is now fully linked (back/forth) to corresponding related software. Very cool stuff, many thanks to Ulysses777 for these!


Forever Emulator v1.24 is out
Posted by Gaia on 2004-02-18
The first ever Commodore plus/4 emulator for DOS has seen another update recently. Visit the website for your copy and the source code, although the download does not seem to work at the time of this writing. It is basically a bugfix release with one new feature, a hardware reset. Many thanks to Litwr for keeping up the good work!


Tomb Of Tarrabash Revealed!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-02-13
Tomb Of TarrabashThis unique release from Audiogenic was one of the elusive ones, we just could not get our hands on an original copy. Well, the wait is over: Ulysses777 brings you the cover scans and TAP files for Tomb Of Tarrabash! This cool platformer may be a little hard to get into, but it's definitely a game that can keep you occupied. If you haven't been in the tomb yet, this is the time to check it out... We have also added the TAP file for Solo. Enjoy!


2 Covers From SVS!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-02-12
Script/PlusCalc/PlusThat's right, the utility guru himself actually took time away from coding his utilities to scan the covers of two... utilities. (What, did you really expect game covers?) We now have the Italian cover for Script/Plus, along with an advertisement page, and also the cover for Calc/Plus. Jim Hehl's Calc/Plus documentation is also on-line. If you haven't played with this yet, now is the time to check out what these can do. Thanks for the scans, enjoy!


FIRE homepage online now!
Posted by Luca on 2004-02-11
Last week a cruel flu had stopped me, and I was forced to rest in my room. Hence, catching the bouncing ball, I designed a commemorative homepage dedicated to crew of mine. After so many years spent in the Plus/4 scene, FIRE surely deserves a site containing all the stuff released under its label. There will be a new URL under the plus4.net hierarchy for it soon, you'll know when it will happen; while waiting, lemme know if you like it or not. Now enjoy!


Two More New Covers!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-02-11
WitnessC16 Star Games ClassicsPlus4Vampyre scanned two more covers for us. The first one is C16 Star Games Classics, which is yet another repackaged compilation tape stuffed with classic C16 Gremlin Graphics games. The second is a scan of Witness, an Infocom text adventure. He also sent us the D64 image for this game as well. Excellent stuff! Enjoy!


The Stone Castle 4!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-02-10
ChicagoDiggerGärtnerSafariPlus4Vampyre brings us the covers for the famous "Stone Castle 4"! These four German games actually have product codes as 1,2,3 and 4. Let's see them: Chicago, Digger, Gärtner and Safari. Now all we need are the actual games! Many thanks for these!


Full Size Cover Scan Replacements!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-02-09
Crown re-scanned several covers for the site, so that now we can enjoy the full size versions, plus the back covers. Today we added 3D Quasars, Dingbat, Way of the Exploding Fist, Loco-Coco and Yie Ar Kung-Fu. The last new cover is for Cyborg, this game now also has a TAP file as well. Many thanks for these! Enjoy!


New Cover Scans!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-02-05
Deutsch Teil 2Deutsch Teil 1Bridgehead C16GremlinsSidius, whose picture recently got added to the Faces of the Scene gallery, sent us some new coverscans for the site. Let's start with Gremlins - this scan is for the cover of the original tex-only release of course. We now also have the Kingsoft release of Bridgehead, apparently their tape contained BOTH the Plus/4 and the C16 version. Finally we have the covers for two Stone Castle releases: Deutsch Teil 1 and 2. Many thanks for these!


Covers And TAPs
Posted by Csabo on 2004-02-03
Lunar DockingRig AttackOlympiadZap-emThis month starts with a nice pack of goodies from Ulysses777. He is hard at work to complete the TAP collection, and today we have added the original TAP files for Can of Worms, Daley Thompson's Star Events, Jail Break and Indoor Soccer (Plus/4 Version!). We also have 4 improved covers AND original TAP files for 4 more Tynesoft games: Lunar Docking, Rig Attack, Olympiad and Zap-em. Very nice stuff, check it out! Many thanks to Ulysses777 for these!


Tons of TAPs!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-02-03
Today's second update comes from Crown, whose datasette must be burning after transferring this many programs from tape. Let's start with Math Games and Word Problems: we have added not less than 8 TAP files, one for each game that's on this compilation release. Next we have the TAP for Panik!, this time the version that works both on the C16 & Plus/4. We also have a new Paintbox TAP file: this actually contains a demo picture after the program! See the details page for loading instuctions on that. Finally we have Music Master's TAP file for the first time, but even this one comes with an added bonus, there's a demotune recorded after the program. Load it (instructions are on the details page once again), it's nice to listen to. Many thanks to Crown for these!
