3 New Covers And 2 TAP images!
Posted by Csabo on 2005-09-28
Isn't that the same title as yesterday? Be that as it may, once again we have two covers + TAP images from Crown: Berks (Go-Go Games) is from Go-Go Games and Caves of Mars is from Visiogame. They are Italian releases - obviously modified from the originals, but interesting pieces to have in our collection. One cover from C16 Chris: Formula 1 Simulator now has a full size scan for the C=16 labelled cover as well. Enjoy!


3 New Covers And 2 TAP Images!
Posted by Csabo on 2005-09-27
Here comes some new stuff from Crown: two Visiogame releases. This company appears to be yet another Italian one who released hacked games. Aeroblitz and Axxon are actually Italian versions of Blitz 16 and Raider. They have cool covers nevertheless... Both are complete with TAP images. We've also managed to squeeze in one more C16 Chris cover into today's update: Fingers Malone now has a full size scan. Enjoy!


2 Mastertronic Covers!
Posted by Csabo on 2005-09-26
The daily updates continue with just 2 covers for today. C16 Chris sent in a ton of full size replacements, these are from that list. Big Mac is done, and even has an alternative back cover, plus we have Finders Keepers. Enjoy, there's more to come!


3 New Kingsoft Covers!
Posted by Csabo on 2005-09-25
Sidius sent us covers for three Kingsoft releases, 10 scans in total. Micro Text and Micro Text 2.0 now have all their covers, and they are HUGE! All we need now are the actual program files. We also have the Turbo Tape cover scan. This happens to be yet another unimaginatively named program, so there's some confusion around multiple programs with the same name. Sidius also sent us the original German TAP images for Mercenary - Flucht Aus Targ and Mercenary - Die Zweite Stadt. Cool stuff, enjoy!


4 Rare Ones!
Posted by Csabo on 2005-09-24
We have 4 more rare coverscans from Plus4Vampyre. First up is an odd one: a white cover version of Baby Berks. It appears to have handwritten text on it, but looks like a legitimate release nevertheless. Next up we have a beautiful scan for Fantastic Four, the German language version. We even received the G64 image for this game, but unfortunately it does not load with YAPE or VICE. Next we have the second compilation release from OziSoft: Petals of Doom Galaxions. Finally another very nice one: Wu Lung disk cover (6 scans!). This bi-lingual cover has English and German instructions for this very nicely done and somewhat underappreciated game from CSJ. Big thanks for these, enjoy!


5 New Covers!
Posted by Csabo on 2005-09-23
We're pleased to bring you some new cover scans! Yesterday we've added Adress C16, we now have the cover scan for it, courtesy of Plus4Vampyre. He has also sent us a much-looked-after Audiogenic release of 3D Glooper. Next up are the C16 Chris scans: Bandits at Zero (full size scan), Flight Path 737 (an alternative cover) and finally Star Commander. This last one is the third and (for now) final release from Tequila Sunrise, hailing from Belgium. It's nice to know how widespread the C16/Plus4 was! Thanks guys for these!


New TAP images!
Posted by Csabo on 2005-09-22
Rüdiger sent us 6 more original TAP files. Adress C16 was a previously missing one, knocks off one from our Missing Software list. We also have Classic Adventure from Melbourne House, Datafile +4 (that's a new one, more info is needed), Way of the Exploding Fist (3rd TAP image already, this one is from Five Star Games 3), Syndrome Compilation and finally US Drag Racing (the original Tynesoft version). New covers from C16 Chris: Booty has the international cover with instructions, and full size scan for Hektik. Thanks guys!


New Covers!
Posted by Csabo on 2005-09-21
More covers from C16 Chris: an alternative cover for Gremlins, an Italian re-release cover for Steve Davis Snooker. Byte Games 6 has also been added, hopefully we will get more info on this later. Last but not least we have I Giochi Di Societa, an Editoriale Video (and somewhat shady) release from Italy. It's a game compilation with quite a few originals (check the New Stuff page to see these games) and even a hacked chess (Scacchi). Check it out and enjoy!


New Stuff!
Posted by Csabo on 2005-09-19
Let's get this week started with some new stuff. To be a bit more descriptive, we've added 3 new cover scans from C16 Chris: ACE +4 Disk Cover, Galaxy (A Kingsoft release cover with different labels), and an alternative scan for Canoe Slalom. We also have some new TAP images from Rüdiger: Savage Island Part 2, the C=16 text only version (finally!). This is the only playable one, as the Plus/4 version is not only badly converted as the first part of the game, but also completely bugged. Finally we have the 4 TAP files for Commodore's Typing Professor. Cool stuff, check it out! Thanks guys!


11 New Covers!
Posted by Csabo on 2005-09-16
From the (seemingly never-ending) C16 Chris collection... We've added 11 new cover scans covering 4 games. Las Vegas now has the large box cover scan. Manic Miner received a lot of stuff: full size original, an alternative cover (with different C16 label), a Jackson release and German instructions. We also have Petch released by Tequila Sunrise and finally a nice Italian re-release cover from Soft for Rig Attack. Thanks to C16 Chris once again. Enjoy!


New Cover Added
Posted by Csabo on 2005-09-15
C16 Chris sent in a newly found old-release: Syndrome Compilation from Jaysoft. The tape contains three basic games: Syndrome (Game), Tank Block and Blast It. (Not to be confused with the Syndrome megademo.) The cover touts "smooth action with colorful graphics" - well, we've heard that one before... Take a look and judge it for yourself. We've probably seen worse. Nevertheless it's a cool addition to our ever growing collection. Enjoy!


Pigmy Releases Digi Mixing Player!
Posted by Csabo on 2005-09-13
Pigmy (re)released Digi Mixing Player. It's that mysterious one that was discussed here on our forum. This player mixes three channels of digital samples realtime. The playback is at 13,800 Khz (which is very fast!), using the traditional 13 value digi table (that's about 3.5 bits). Even though there's no interface, we have instructions on what files to load to actually hear something. Also note that as of this time, DMP does not yet work in YAPE, but it does in VICE. Cheers to Pigmy for making this public!


More New Stuff!
Posted by Csabo on 2005-09-11
We're closing this week with yet another update. Rüdiger's datasette must be smoking, because he sent us a boatload of TAP files. Here we go: Battle Star (original TAP image with a very cool loading screen), Blaze, Way of the Exploding Fist (the Melbourne House release), Gremlins, Leapin Louie (the original, not te novaload version), Operation Hawaii, The Chip Factory. Finally there's something new, yes, once again, we bring you a piece of software that you haven't seen before. It's Tynesoft's Music Synthesiser. We've had the cover with the cute kids, but now we have the software as well. At a first glance it looks like a very impressive tracker, with ADSR, glissandro, vibrato, tremolo controls and more. (All we need now are some decent instructions.) It's definitely worth a look, check it out. Plus we just couldn't resist to add one more cover from C16 Chris, it's for Deutscher Zeichensatz (Plus/4), a utility from Kingsoft. Since it's a commercial release, it brings the total covers to 571, we're at 75%. Thanks guys!


New Cover Scans from A-Z!
Posted by Csabo on 2005-09-10
More covers from C16 Chris. We have a better coverscan for Surround Balance Tricky Dices, which we have renamed from Data Media Collection 2 to be more consistent with the UserSoft releases. V is for Vox, which now has an alternative tape cover, W is for Winter Events, we have a new disk cover with a special sticker (announcing what awards Udo won). Z is for Zap-em, we have a new Italian re-release cover. The last one is a new release. Okay, old release, never before seen at least. 2005 September, and we're still finding these? It comes on Andromeda Meteo 16, a two-program compilation from Mantra. The cover scan for this release actually comes from Crown. Both guys sent it in, but his was better quality. He is also the kind soul who created the original TAP file for these two. Andromedia is a gross hack of Stellar Wars, but Meteo 16 is new, apparently some kind of meteorological software (in Italian). What do you mean this is not news? You read it on the forum days ago? Eh, just go and download it. Thanks guys!


New Cover Scans!
Posted by Csabo on 2005-09-08
From the C16 Chris collection, we have 5 covers for 3 games today. Bongo now has a disk cover (the 4th one for this somewhat underrated but nevertheless brilliant game). Death Race 16 now has an alternative cover, this one has a Commodore 16 (only) label. Finally we have an Italian re-release Blame, which is really Blaze, the old shooter originally from Romik Software. Enjoy!


New Cover Scans!
Posted by Csabo on 2005-09-03
Today is the first installment of the many, many covers sent in by C16 Chris. 8 coverscans have been added, covering three games: 3D Time Trek (a release by Tequila Sunrise software), plus two alternative covers for Apollo Mission and the classic Patrick Strassen game Autobahn. Check them out! Thanks to C16 Chris for these, stay tuned for more to come.


Expectation 2 Released!
Posted by Csabo on 2005-09-02
We have a new demo for the Plus/4! Skoro of Assassins has just released the follow-up to 2003's Expectation. Two years after the 16K demo comes the new installment: Expectation 2. This release is the 25th this year. Nice visuals are waiting for you, the music unfortunately is SID only. Cheers to Skoro for keeping it going. Download it now!
