2006 - The Year In Review
Posted by Csabo on 2006-12-31
It's the last day of the year once again, and so comes our traditional year end review. Let's see what happened in the last 365 days in the world of the Plus/4.

In the Emulator arena YAPE continues to dominate, with six new updates it is now up to version 0.70. Forever was also updated twice: for the DOS platform it's simple the best. VICE is also still being updated, no big improvements on the Plus/4 front though. Emulation of machine has also extended to a few more platforms: Gaia released Pocket Commodore Plus/4 for the PocketPC, and YAPE was ported to the PSP.

Our collection grows, we're still adding cover scans and information. There were no big changes or newcomers in terms of websites this year, other than stuff for XeO3. This leads us into...

Software. Looking at the statistics is somewhat promising, we had 45 releases (up by two from last year, yay!). No new big-scale games just yet, but XeO3 and Bomberman previews were in the news (which one of you said vaporware?). We also had a few older games found/released and a few basic games off the Club Info disks. In the world of diskmags, Club Info, Lone News and Lamer News are still kicking. On the forefront of utilities is SVS, who just put out version 3.0 of Bal-Sys. Finally we have demos: there was 8 Shades Of Black, the C16 trackmo, an excellent community effort, something for us to be proud of. Monopsy 2, Oldschool, TED Storm and Roeddelroemp also amazed us and broke into our Top List.

Thanks to everyone in the community for the coding, the collecting, the feedback, just being here and keeping the Plus/4 alive. All the best for 2007!


BalSys new release 3.0
Posted by SVS on 2006-12-29
A new powerful release of Bal-Sys have just arrived from SVS, with a lot of improvements and new features. Go to here to download your copy!

Main news of release 3.0:
- Massive data commands (sampler till 1450 Hz, automatic graphic generator, fast data statistics, etc.)
- Online Helper (contextual or on-demand) by a large RELative file; overlayed help window; opportunity to maintain the help window while coding (all the screen objects are automatically scaled)
- System memory is expanded to 8192 (double than previous one)
- New commands and improvements of already existing ones
- System can be loaded from any device unit (for example drive #9)
- A new independent background line (the 4th!)
- Updated and revised manual
- A demo and sampler BAL programs to try
- ... and much, much more!

Club Info 96 Released!
Posted by Csabo on 2006-12-07
Club Info 96Erich of Unlimited sent us the new Club Info: the German language diskmag for the Commodore Plus/4. Side A is for the articles, while the other has some new stuff: recently released demos, a few utils and even new games. One of the games is Kristall, which looks pretty interesting. Check it out and enjoy!


Yape/SDL ported to the PSP!
Posted by Gaia on 2006-12-02
Good news for PSP (Playstation Portable) owners. A guy called ZX81 has recently ported Yape's older SDL version to the Sony PSP. For the announcement head on over to the homepage at http://zx81.zx81.free.fr/serendipity. There's also an ongoing discussion on the forum here.

Note that although this is a very old version it should work fine with most of the games nevertheless.
