YAPE Update!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-09-26
Version 0.59 of YAPE has been released yesterday. Among other improvements and fixes the biggest new thing is the possibility to emulate 4 disk drives. To check it out and download it, head on over to the YAPE homage. In related news, VICE has also been updated, it is now version 1.15. This was last month, but we missed it. The only new improvement in Plus/4 emulation is the newly added cartridge support. Also, the DOS based emulator Forever has been updated about the same day. It seems as if FLI support was shaping up in this pioneering emulator, at last one of the files included in the package suggests this.


New Covers and Tape Files
Posted by Csabo on 2004-09-26
MenekülésMesél az erdőLacus sent us lots more stuff from the Hungarian side of things. Here's what we managed to add today: Bemutató Programcsomag now has individual tape files for all 10 programs on it (note that the first one must always be loaded before the others). Plus we've got two rare covers: Menekülés and Mesél az erdő. Thanks for these, and stay tuned for more.


2 Compilation Tapes!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-09-25
Go Games 26We've added Go Games 26, containing 7 Italian hacked games. It's good to have these so for the sake of completing the collection, but all the games are same as the originals. Software Club 16 however has 4 new programs on it, 3 games and one utility. Each file has a TAP, and we have the manual scanned as well. All of this is from Crown, big thanks to him for his contribution. Enjoy!


3 More Covers and TAP files!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-09-24
BombázóLézer-HarcVeremCrown is also active once again, sending us missing stuff for the archive. The three programs to receive their cover scans and TAP files are: Verem (cool tetris-clone), Lézer-Harc and Bombázó. This last one is newly added, and as the name suggests(?!) it's yet another bomber clone. Thanks to Crown for these. Enjoy!


3 More TAPs!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-09-23
Three more TAP files were uploaded today to the archive, sent in by TLC. The first two are accompany the recently added covers for Sakk Kezdőknek and Szociometria. The third one is TLC's own MegaCopy V1.1, a very competent tape turbo + filecopy. Recommended! Thanks for these, and stay tuned for more.


4 New Hungarian TAP files
Posted by Csabo on 2004-09-22
In the coming days, we will be adding a lot more programs and cover scans from the Hungarian side of things. This is the first installment, courtesy of Lacus. We have now TAP files for Menekülés, Mesél az Erdő (cool platformer, worth checking out!), Számépítő and Térbeli Amőba. There's a lot more stuff on the way so stay tuned!


Quadrillion Released!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-09-20
The first Plus/4 specific entry has been entered into the 2004 MiniGame compo. It's a new game that will put you reflexes to the test. Quadrillion has easy-to-learn gameplay and 20 levels. The full source code is also released, anyone who is interested in seeing what it takes to create a full-blown game can check it out. This is the 34th new release for 2004, and it contains a level created by Lando, who is celebrating his birthday today. Happy Birthday Lando!

The author would like to thank everyone for their support here on the forum and in personal messages. Now there's one more thing you can do for a fellow Plus/4'er: visit the MiniGame compo website and vote for this game as you see it fit. Keep the Plus/4 Alive!


Two Italian Publications Added
Posted by Csabo on 2004-09-19
Luca scanned some of his stuff too, and we are proud to list the first Italian book in our database: Machine Language for C16. Another new publication added is the booklet for the Music Master compilation, published by Jackson. All 16 pages are scanned and can be found here. Thanks to Luca for these!


Tons of New Programs!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-09-19
Over 100 new programs have been added to the database. Head on over to the New Uploads list to see what we have been missing. (And of course this is another good addition to the Missing Info page.) We are up to ~4750 programs, and well on our way to 5000... Cheers to Luca for collecting and uploading these!


3 New Game Maps!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-09-16
Game Maps are truly works of art, created by Plus/4 enthusiasts. They give you a full size view of the games, like you've never seen before. We don't receive one of these every day - probably because they take so much time to create. We are therefore extremely proud to present not one, not two, not three, I mean yes, three brand new maps for your viewing pleasure. Created by Ulysses777, they are for Icicle Works, Molecula Man and Exorcist. They have to be seen to be believed, check them out, it's a lot of fun. Many thanks to Ulysses once again.


Go Games 15
Posted by Csabo on 2004-09-15
We have just added a new compilation tape to our database. It is Go Games 15 - an italian compilation, and some (or perhaps all?) of the games are hacked versions of other commercial software. (We don't judge though, we just dutifully document the past.) The 7 games on it are Zombi, Snorky, Firefox, Britt, Asterocks, Brainstorm! and Dragon's Castle. Some of the games are marked Editions Fermont. Now, where have we heard that name before?... We have also added the TAP file for Mathematik Teil 1 (a working one finally!). All these are courtesy of Crown. Enjoy!


2 Hungarian Covers
Posted by Csabo on 2004-09-14
SzociometriaSakk KezdőknekPlus/4 World is proud to present two more cover scans, this time for Hungarian releases. We don't get one of these every day. Sakk Kezdőknek (Starter Chess) is the first one, the second is Szociometria (Sociometrics). They are from TLC, who just recently got himself a scanner. Good move! We have also added Mini News 01. Anyone who remembers the last one knows that was #10. But it's no mistake this is #1, not #11. We were infact missing this piece of software. So the good folks at Plus/4 World contacted the original author, Skoro. He let us know that he has it, but he doesn't have any equipment to transfer files to the PC. TLC came to the rescue: Skoro mailed a disk to him and he did the transfer, and it is now part of the archive forever. Many thanks to both guys. Enjoy!


11 Kingsoft Disk Covers
Posted by Csabo on 2004-09-13
ManiaxKingsoft Soft 80Markus Gans scanned not less than 11 Kingsoft disks for us! This is quite the collection, and here they are: Demolition, Fire-Galaxy, Fortress Underground (alternate cover), Grafik Designer, Music Master, Paintbox, Sextett, Sommer Olympiade and Winter Olympiade. Two more left: Maniax and Soft 80, for these two programs his covers are the first, increasing our statistics to 77.68% complete. He also sent in the front and back covers of Das Grosse C-16 Buch (The Big C-16 Book), also by Kingsoft. Many thanks for these! Enjoy.


Covers and TAP Files!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-09-12
Crown brings us this weekends goodies... Let's get started with the covers: we have Berks, Commando (Elite Release), Deutsch Teil 1 and Deutsch Teil 2, Football Manager (more on this one later), Harvey Headbanger, Liberator, Mathematik Teil 1, Minipedes (alternative cover), Out on a limb, Xargon Wars (alternative cover). The one for Football Manager could be the original cover, as it offers an entry form to some trip. On our existing cover this label, and the message in the corner is covered with a company logo... I guess someone won that trip already! Anyway, it's not over yet, because we've also added 4 non-turbo loading TAP files: Chicago, Commando, Steinzeit and Varmit. Many thanks to Crown once again. And that's all folks for today.


3 More Cover Scans
Posted by Csabo on 2004-09-12
Mercenary Kompendium...have been added, courtesy of Sidius. We have the Melbourne House release of Way of the Exploding Fist. If one reads the comments on the back side of this cover, it sounds like they are talking about a different game entirely. And they are, as the little note says: comments are for the C64 version. Anyhow, we also have the German disk version of Hollywood Poker, and Mercenary Kompendium (it's just so cool the way they spell that with a K) - German tape version scans. Cool stuff, thanks to Sidius for these! Also visit the Faces of the Scene gallery to see Graffiti's portait, which has just been added, thanks Luca!


3 Covers Added!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-09-08
Arthur NoidWorld Series BaseballKing Size Turbo AccountsAnother day, another set of covers. There are still some folks out there who think that's good news, right? Crown sent us full size replacement covers for the Shaun Southern classic Arthur Noid and World Series Baseball. He also scanned the cover for a newly added program: King Size Turbo Accounts from Robtek. This one now has a TAP and PRG file for you to download as well. Many thanks! Stay tuned for more.


4 Razorsoft/Paxman Covers!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-09-07
Mail TrailMega ZapRaiderSea Strike
We have complete coverscans for 4 more games, courtesy of Plus4Vampyre. Mail Trail, Mega Zap, Raider and Sea Strike are budget titles from Razorsoft. They each have an original cover, which - one has to admit - are pretty cheap looking. However, Paxman has re-released them all with fancy cover artworks... Well there you go, enjoy!


6 More Covers!
Posted by Csabo on 2004-09-07
Turf-FormTyping ProfessorPlus4Vampyre's latest cover scans have finally all made it to the site. Without further ado, here are the final ones: Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy, Icicle Works (Single Release), Turf-Form, Typing Professor, What's Next - Letters And Numbers and Word Perfect. This last one is newly added, we don't have anything else other than the cover, so program files or any info would be appreciated. Enjoy!


YAPE V0.58 Released
Posted by Csabo on 2004-09-04
Today Gaia released the latest upgrade for YAPE. The homepage mentions only a modest short list of improvements, but rest assured, this version fixes many smaller things as well which are probably not worth mentioning. However, you will definitely benefit from added stability. The option to select fullscreen resolution is also great, and it will finally enable some of us to run YAPE in fullscreen mode (since some lame monitors or videocards just don't support 400x300, the old default). Cheers to Gaia for his continued hard work, and go download the latest version now!
