[limiTED] Online Demo Compo Starts Now!
Posted by Luca on 2007-03-29
It takes off, and now you have no excuses left!
Yes, this is the right time, and the right place too: show to all of us who really "is right in the tight"!

[limiTED] compo is the very first Commodore Plus/4 online demo challenge ever, featuring three differently memory sized battlefields: 64 bytes, 128 bytes and 1024 bytes demo categories. This is the kind of gauntlet that hardcore coders can't refuse to raise up.
We don't care if you're a beast of Plus/4 mythology, a bold newcomer from other scenes or a tiny BASIC addicted: read the rules, code at your best, upload here your precious little gem, vote, eventually win. In a word: have fun!


Lone News 19
Posted by Luca on 2007-03-24
Ok, I know, I know that: I'm late!
I'm terribly late, to be precise I'm out of three months since I announced Lone News 19. But you see, now it's out! And it contains a cool interview with TBH (aka nukem!), a party report from "Arok 8", and (to call back your forgiveness to me) a fresh party report from "15 Years Oxyron Party", written by the democompo winner Degauss/TEK.
Hey you! Discover your new +4 passion and begin to code again, we'd just begun to dominate the 8bit scene, you see! And how we did it? Read Lone News 19 right now and you'll know all!
Service alert: the 2nd magazine's tune is dedicated to Crown.


Forever Update
Posted by Csabo on 2007-03-22
Litwr sent us word that he updated his Forever Plus/4 Emulator. We missed an official announcement for the previous update, so here's what's (relatively new) in the latest version:
  • improved datasette emulation, added direct TAP format support
  • fixed some disk drive and IEC emulation errors (thanks to SVS of Fire)
  • command line parameter support, e.g. autoload PRG files (requested by Ninja / The Dreams)
  • provided proper emulation of the bit 1 of the TED $1e register, and other minor bugfixes.

The author also mentioned that while Forever is only second to YAPE in terms of TED accuracy emulation, it has the best debugger. Thanks for Litwr for his continued work on this cool emulator!


Risen From The Wwwoblivion
Posted by Luca on 2007-03-17
Attack Of The Mutant CamelsAttack Of The Mutant Camels IntroThe story so far. Some days ago, Luca/FIRE had found two hidden gems in a blog maintained by a german guy: a simple shmup and a Minter's milestone, both converted on Plus/4 from the original C64 source code. Few features should be fixed yet, hence he retouched the Hecht's conversions, fixed them, coded a nice intro, finally released.
The whole bunches of source codes, original conversions and fixed ones, are now available here and here.

De Luxe CavesCentripodGaia spotted another unreleased Plus/4 converted game: De Luxe Caves.
It's a (badly made) porting of Boulderdash with edited levels by Marek Roth (a well known Boulderdash addicted since years), opening with a cool intro, and featuring SIDcard support.

Somewhere, the sands of Internet hide under precious items right now...


Exacting Demo Found!
Posted by Csabo on 2007-03-16
Exacting DemoAfter battling with GUI4CBM4WIN and cables, TPSH managed to copy his megademo called: Exacting Demo. The odd title was chosen for a very reason: this demo is the follow up to Unassuming Demo, whose title is transliterated from "Igénytelen Demo" (roughly meaning "Demo of low quality"). So the Hungarian title is the opposite: "Igényes Demo" (roughly meaning "Demo of high quality"). It's a nice production featuring several pieces of digitalized punk music. The demo is one of the rare ones that occupy two full disk sides - full meaning 40 tracks in this case, versus the normal 35 tracks used on 5 1/4 disks. We're very happy to have this long-lost demo in our archives at last. Definitely worth checking out if you haven't seen it. And remember to search your old disks, and keep looking for hidden treasures like these!


Beta Version of New Emulator is Available
Posted by Csabo on 2007-03-15
IstvanV released a new beta version of his emulator, available at at SourceForge: http://sourceforge.net/projects/ep128emu/.

Changes since the last alpha snapshot include the addition of 1541 emulation, a Windows installer, even more accurate TED emulation, and the keyboard layout has been made more consistent with other emulators. The code is available under the GPL license, which means that anyone can use any part of it, but only as long as the project is also open source and has a GPL license and the copyright notices are preserved.
If anyone is interested, they can join the development or subscribe to the new mailing lists at http://sourceforge.net/mail/?group_id=128766.


New Member Photos
Posted by Csabo on 2007-03-14
Just a quick note to let you guys know that we recently added a few more photos of the following scene members: CSM, Jakec, Niks, Ratt, The Elder and TPSH. Check out the Faces of the Scene page, which now has a 113 photos!


YAPE 0.72 out!
Posted by Ulysses777 on 2007-03-13
Barely a month after the last release, Gaia's YAPE emulator has been updated again.
Changes this time:
  • another new emulation level (VHA, very high accuracy)
  • started implementing exact video shift register emulation in VHA mode
  • improved PAL-NTSC switch artifacts
  • oversampling now also for the SID card
  • selectable sound replay frequency
  • more fullscreen mode options
  • added support for test mode
  • bug in the FIR filter fixed
  • TED border flipflop check was 1 cycle off


The new VICE is out now!
Posted by Sidius on 2007-03-10
Today, a new version of the VICE-Emulator is on the net: Version 1.21!

And now, VICE (Plus/4) supports the SID-Card and sound recording. This release also fixed some minor TED graphics bugs.

Take a look at http://www.viceteam.org/
