VolksFORTH reaches version 3.80.1
Posted by Luca on 2006-08-19
VolksFORTHVolksFORTH is a 16bit Forth System produced by the german Forth Gesellschaft e.V., that has become a multiplatform project including C16/Plus4 machines. On the official page, you'll able to get anything you could need to manage with it: cross/target-compiler, multitasker, decompiler, assembler, disassembler and full sourcecode.

The people who coded it, just wrote that the're still on the keys in order to finish Version 3.90. We're looking forward for it then.


8 Shades of Black - the official release!
Posted by Luca on 2006-08-19
8 Shades of BlackLook at the thumbnail on the right: don't you see that something has been added to the blisterpack, uh?
After two weeks and half since the party version had been released, it's time to have the official one! That's 8 Shades of Black as we'd originally pictured in our minds, with one part more (by Murphy, with gfx by Beast), and some minor fixes. And, well, I have to admit that all this delay can be considered as "well spent", because the additional part is another killer one!

We have only begun to win, that's simply a starting point!


Two Rare Coverscans from Mosh!
Posted by Csabo on 2006-08-16
Starter ChessThermo Nuclear War GamesMosh sent us two new coverscans for our collection. Gameworx Software (later renamed Softgold) out of Melbourne released 8 adventure games. We now have the first cover scan for this series: it's for Thermo Nuclear War Games. The cover itself doesn't bear any platform markings (more than likely they re-used them for the C64 release as well), the C=16 sticker is on the outside of the clam shell case. Only 7 more to go!

The second cover is another rare one; and a bit of a surprise - at least for the hardcore collectors who keep up with the releases. Starter Chess, the classic C=16 chess game was previously thought to be released only as part of the well known Commodore 16 Showcase collection. This new cover hover disproves that theory: it was released as an individual release after all, by Commodore Australia. Will wonders never cease? Check out these covers, big thanks to Mosh!


5 New Italian Re-release Scans!
Posted by Csabo on 2006-08-08
Petals Of DoomTycoon TexC16 Chris sent us more Italian release cover scans. They come from Armati and Top30. The new scans are: Centipede (Spectipede), Petals Of Doom, Skramble, Tycoon Tex and finally a compilation tape: Zap-em Supergran. These are nice additions to our ever growing collection of scans, big thanks to C16 Chris for them!


More Faces Of The Scene (Again)!
Posted by Csabo on 2006-08-06
We've added 3 more portaits to the Faces of the Scene gallery. Larry/WLS, the first coder to display a picture on the sideborder, OLS a graphician from GS and Britelite. This brings the total number of portraits to 107. Thanks for Lacoste for hunting these down!


Two Coverscans From Sidius!
Posted by Csabo on 2006-08-06
Sidius found two more Italian re-release compilations. These come from Savage Software: Stellar Wars / Berks LM and Scacchi / Black Jack. According to their product codes, these are numbers 004 and 010 respectively. This also gives us a hint, that there's probably more unknown tapes to be found out there, even besides the few that we know that existed but don't have. Each tape includes two games and we've also added the program downloads for all 4 programs. Thanks to Sidius for these! Enjoy!


New Graphics Box Release!
Posted by Csabo on 2006-08-05
Harry Gfx Box 6The GOTU team, one of the last remaining demogroups on our scene was sadly absent from 8 Shades Of Black. However, they have now returned with their first release of the year: Harry Gfx Box 6! This latest piece in the Harry Gfx Box series has 5 full size hand-pixelled multicolor pictures waiting for you. Check it out! Cheers to the remaining active people, let's see more releases!


7 New Covers!
Posted by Csabo on 2006-08-04
C16 Chris contributed 7 new cover scans for our collections. These are relatively rare, Italian re-releases. They are: Cuthbert Enters The Tombs, Boxing, Kung Fu, Major Blinck, Olympiad, Rescue From Zylon and Zap-em. The companies responsible for these are Armati, Mr. Soft and Top30. Enjoy!


More Faces Of The Scene!
Posted by Csabo on 2006-08-03
We now have 104 pictures in the Faces of the Scene gallery. Recently added were Cooler and Oby, from the Hungarian demogroup Wilds (thanks to Lacoste for the pics). We also dug up a picture of Elf/PTA from the rulez party image archive. If you visit the Members listing page, there's a new column indicating if the member already has a picture or not. Enjoy!


Club Info 94 Released!
Posted by Csabo on 2006-08-03
Erich/Unlimited sent us the latest issue of Club Info: issue 94 is here. The German diskmag is full of new articles as usual, while side B has goodies. Among them are Sudoku, the first and (so far) only Sudoku solver on Plus/4, it's actually quite impressive. There's also Anaconda, another one of those PETSCII movie demos, an interesting watch. Check out the rest in the New Stuff section.


The Face of Degauss
Posted by Csabo on 2006-08-02
Degauss (AKA. Dr. Death, THE coder from Germany) has made it to our Faces of the Scene album! We now have quite a crowd, his portait being number 101 in the list. Go there and check it all out: for those who are really a part of this community, it's nice to put a face to a name.

Also head on over to ftp://c64.rulez.org/pub/plus4/Parties/ for all the Arok #8 photos you can handle! And if you haven't done it already, send your photo in, so that we can add it.


A Few Oldies From Csio
Posted by Csabo on 2006-08-02
Csio dug up a few missing demos from his disks and sent it our way. Check out Brutyo, Fascinating, Matrix Digibox and Sure Shot. A few of these were created under the fake handle Derrick (which is also Csio). It's always nice to get lost pieces of work - the collection grows, steadily as ever. Enjoy!


8 Shades Of Black Released!
Posted by Csabo on 2006-08-01
The moment you've been waiting for has arrived: 8 Shades Of Black (8SoB) is available for download. This is the "party version", containing everything there is except Murphy's part.

So how can we describe this production? I think "demo of the year" is a fair statement. There are 10 polished amazing parts waiting for you, full of TED music and beautiful colors, yes, even using all 8 shades of black that our machine can offer. The partselector and presentation is very unique and funny: each part is a pill, curing some form of sickness. See it for yourself, this demo is not to be missed! Enjoy!
