PRG launcher released
Posted by Gaia on 2007-10-24
Our own ern0 has released an emulator tool that allows one to use several Commodore machine emulators at the same time. You can associate this tool with the PRG extension and by clicking on a PRG file it will load, the start address gets autodetected and the control of the program is passed to the appropriate emulator (so for example C64 emulator for the $0801 address and $1001 for the plus/4). Now I just wonder what to do with the VIC-20 programs :-)

Two New Top Lists
Posted by Luca on 2007-10-17
At last, we split the Demos Top List.
As requested by several people, we've preferred to have different charts by specific memory categories. Top List page shows now a couple of brand new columns: Top 50 16K Demos and Top 50 1K Demos.

"Top 50 16K Demos" will support our specific demo type which has born in the inner core of the Plus/4 scene, up to receive the Pou√ęt's probate. We all know, 264 series machines mostly existed in 16K and 64K version, hence a 16K demo intends to show to the audience all the power of a C16/C116 monster.
After the release of classy specimens like 8SoB, Ikaruga, TED Storm, we need a dedicated list, in order to endorse the newborn 16K genre.

"Top 50 1K Demos" list considers all the pieces of minimalist art, from 64 to 1024 bytes large. Astounding stuff like Roeddelroemp, 6fx, Your daily 128 byte intro and Digi 64 are included. At the moment, it includes 64/128/1024 bytes stuff, new subcategories can be quickly added if needed.

Both lists are brand new, and it would be a great effort of collective involvement if you all will spend very few minutes in order to enjoy these little great demos again, then put down some votes and allow the needing ones to enter the main charts.


Club-Info 101 is out!
Posted by Luca on 2007-10-11
Club Info 101And now, get ready toward a new goal! And we have to consider this issue 101 as the very first step.

Club-Info is now the one-and-only 3-digit magazine in the Plus/4 scene, and its editor Erich looks like unstoppable: even in this issue, you'll open the box to find out news, hints, solutions, demos, utilities and games.
On the side B, you can find various stuff and little hidden gems like Reverse 2007, or Cross.


Plus/4 YouTube Video Coverage HQ
Posted by Luca on 2007-10-06
"Ooooww I love vintage computers, and I really would be pleasured by watching all the cool demos coded on your beloved pruss..plaess...how did you call it? Ah yes, Plus/4, you said Plus/4... Yeah but where I can download the stuff? Oh what's this weird .D64 file format? Hey why does the emulator stop to load? Ouch can't listen to the music? Oh no, what's the problem now with t.."

Pissed of your lazy spoiled pampered double click addicted pseudo-nerd mate? Set him free from a good 89% big slice of his own brain, and tell him: "Simply press play, ok? Easy enough to ya?". Yes, we've found a convenient place for the Commodore Plus/4 YouTube Video Coverage Playlist.

You can contribute too, with your Plus/4 videos, subscribing the Plus/4 Group at YouTube's.
A special greeting goes to IstvanV, who sent in the longest demos.


The Big Wave
Posted by Luca on 2007-10-05
Pot DesignerIt had been a very hard work, but the uploading phase is finished, finally!

DGS offered his large archive of Plus/4 stuff, full of Hungarian releases, lost gems and educational programs. The bunch was extremely fat, over 300 titles! That's why we're still working around them: we need to import several others of the whole wave, enter data and pictures for all the entries, searching for clones and existent entries.
So keep your eyes on the New Stuff during these days, you'll discover more about your beloved blackbox!


AstrapedeExploring around the shores of Chris'big homepage, I spotted out some hidden gems, which have been easily included in the Wave: a Jim Butterfield version of the old classic Colossal Cave, Adventure Plus4; three little but extremely rare games published by Astralog, called Astrapede, Atom Man and Jetpack Jack; Conqueror, a converted lil'Risiko game.
But the real jewel in the whole collection is the disk containing both Pattern Designer and Pot Designer. With the latter, you can draw your pot's profile, and draw several 3D views for it, including a primitive shadowed rendering. You can also literally paste all around your vase your pattern wallpaper built with the former editor.
