You know where to find them! Hit the link below and head on over to Paul's page for the full story. Many thanks to Paul for this news.


A new plus/4 emulator for Linux
Posted by Gaia on 2004-06-22
Linux users be in awe, there is a new plus/4 emulator on the horizon. Its author is István Varga and it is downloadable from http://www.sharemation.com/IstvanV/plus4-1.1.tar.gz. (it does not have a dedicated webpage). You shall need SDL and the ALSA library to be able to compile it. Although the emulation is yet quite rudimentary, it is always nice to see some competition. I have succesfully compiled the source for Windows (albeit, without sound), so if there is some demand, the EXE will be put up for grabs and more people can play around with it. It comes with source, so anyone may feel free to improve it.


New Stuff From Kichy!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-06-20
We're received a nice letter from Kichy. He dug up some old disks and shared the treasures found on them with us. Visit the New Uploads page to see the list of the more than 30 programs added. Among the more interesting ones are Dynamoid Original and the previously unreleased intros for Time Cristal: Time Cristal Intro 1 and Time Cristal Intro 2. (If anyone doesn't know the story, just ask Luca ;-) He said that nowadays he is still at least a bit active on the scene, creating graphics for Skoro's games and demos. Many thanks to Kichy for the stuff. Keep the scene alive!


Mini News 10 Arrives!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-06-20
Mini News 10Finally, another new release this year: the 10th issue of Mini News is here. If you don't speak Hungarian, you are not completely out of luck. Sure, you will miss the actual magazine text, but it's still worth checking out for the cool digi (or SID) music. Another reason is that the magazine has changed to a new format. Many thanks to Lavina for supplying us the program and Skoro for creating it! Keep the scene alive!

ACERafflesWe have managed to add a few more items to our ever-growing collection. From Crown we have a full ACE 2 cover replacement, and the Gamebusters release covers for ACE. This latter one completes the series, we now have the Gamebusters covers for all three ACE games. This very same cover was also sent in by Sidius (almost at the same time), many thanks to both of you! The first cover added from Sidius' pack is the long-awaited Raffles from Tynesoft. Finally we've uploaded the original TAP for Music-16, this one is courtesy of Gaia. Enjoy!


New Covers From Crown!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-06-13
High-Screen-CADPlus-Paket 16Winter EventsCrown sent us this weeks supply of covers. The first one added was High-Screen-CAD, along with the D64 file. This is a German graphic utility, showing a more serious side of our beloved computer. However, we are still looking for documentation for this title. We have also added an alternative cover for Plus-Paket 16, and the German disc cover of Winter Events, labelled Winter Olympiade of course. Many thanks to Crown for these! Stay tuned for more covers to come.

Rüdiger sent us 4 new rare covers. First up is a previously unknown compilation release from Anco, called 6 of the Best. The other three are german utilities: CSJ Turbo Tape, Datei C16 and Lottosysteme. The quality of the covers is not the best, but it's still good to have them in the collection.

"The most amazing game you will see on the C16"
Posted by MIK on 2004-06-04
Those were the very words that Probe Software used to promote Defence 16 way back in 1985! Yes, it's Advertisement time where the once loved companys of yesteryear showed off thier goods in full colour glory. We have a handfull on offer, some will shock, some will amaze and some you won't believe!

First up is the advert for ACE, a unique one this which puts the C16 on the map showing off that the migthy C16 version was the very start of better things to come for all systems that later graced this beautiful game!

We also have adverts for Defence 16 as already said, Golf 16k with its almost copyrighted to George Lucas (Starwars) C3PO head look alike and Steve Davis Snooker.

And we will leave you with 2 adverts from Anirog. Now these go back a bit! The first one is one of the earliest adverts we could get our hands on for Tom Thumb being available for our beloved machine! We are talking mail order only at this time and to our surprise one game is being displayed which is not even listed in the datebase! The second advert shows some of the best offerings of the day in which most were ported from the C64. Little did we know these guys would turn into ANCO, but thats another story for another day.


Patrick Strassen: The Authors Original Game Stories!!
Posted by MIK on 2004-06-01
Classic news put back into the spotlight!

Patrick Strassen and with many thanks sent in some time ago scanned copies of his original game information notes he sent to Gremlin Graphics in 1986 along with production artwork for Xcellor8! These beauties along with other titles have been tucked away from our viewing pleasure on the old done and dusted version of the site and without delay it was time to put things right! For newcomers these are a must see as they tell a story of how Gremlin Graphics and Mastertronic changed the game stories forever!
Page: Xcellor8


Also as above, we have the notes for Power Ball. Mastertronic once again changed Patrick's original story!

And last of all we have the notes for GWNN, (GAME WITH NO NAME) also from Mastertronic and we still haven't found out Patrick's cheat mode password that was not only added to this game but all his releases! Adding to GWNN which completes the story is the real name behind the game itself! Go check it out now!!
