Our Brand New Plus/4 Archive
Posted by Luca on 2009-11-24
Othersi.deIt was the year 1994: everything had born with the Delta System's FTP repository, which had shown it was possible to store swap and spread Plus/4 stuff via Internet. That repository had been enlarged, becoming the Rulez.org Plus/4 Archive, fulcrum for any user. Unfortunately the historical Hungarian archive can be updated no more, and it rested frozen since March 2008.

These days we've put online the 3rd incarnation, and thanks to Chicken which has made it possible by offering his own free FTP space!
Othersi.de is now our main reference Internet archive, continued exactly from where Rulez.org has stopped, and it's right now the largest existent 264 software archive in the whole WWW, from where you can easily pick up all the Plus/4 related demos, games, documents, tools and magazines.
As for the past Rulez.org era, Luca will keep it updated, reporting all the changes and variations into the appropriate .txt files you can find in the upper folder.

So, welcome Othersi.de! Ready to start again!

Novotrade Promotional Material
Posted by Csabo on 2009-11-17
Lacus once again found something interesting: we have added the releavant page scans of a promotional material booklet from Novotrade. Simply titled "Ajánlat" (Offerings), it lists all their releases for Commodore 16, Commodore Plus/4 and a few other insignificant platforms no-one could possibly be interested in. Unfortunately the listings only include the program names and suggested retail price, the product codes aren't there. Still, at least the archive hunters will know what is still missing, what to look for.

Lacus also managed to create a working TAP file for Hidra. From that we were able to create a proper PRG crack which works on a regular Commodore 16, replacing the previous broken program file. Enjoy!

New Version Of Thrust!
Posted by Ulysses777 on 2009-11-13
ThrustWe have some great new contributions to the site, from none other than Matt Young, who coded the C16 port of the classic Thrust!

Apparently Thrust was originally released with a bug in the scrolling, and although Matt was able to fix it, this version never saw the light of day...until now! Having transferred his original code off his 5.25" disks, he has released a revised version of Thrust, which not only has greatly improved scrolling, but also includes built-in cheats for infinite lives and fuel, as well as invulnerability and a level select!

And if that's not enough, he has also released the game's source code as well!

Both downloads are on the Thrust page. Many thanks to Matt for all this stuff, enjoy!

New Uploads
Posted by Csabo on 2009-11-12
We have to additions to the database this time: Rüdiger scanned the 8-page German booklet that accompanies Two To One by Kingsoft. As far as we know, sadly this game was the last commercial release by a large software company for the Commodore Plus/4. The sign of the times also shows on the booklet: the instructions list the Plus/4, but also Amiga and even IBM PC. Another interesting fact about this game is that since it came on the market so late, it wasn't very well known, and some members of the Hungarian demogroup EVS actually converted from C64 what is essentially the same game: Magnet-X.

Second, Lacus found another Hungarian educational program: Teljes Hasonulás. We have the two part TAP file, no cover as of yet. It's unlikely that any more youngsters will actually learn from this oldie, but it does present the subject matter (grammar in this case) in a playful, colorful way with some background music. Big thanks for these guys!

New Cover Scan And TAP Files!
Posted by Csabo on 2009-11-07
MozgasLacus is back again with a few rare goodies straight outta Hungary. First we have Mozgás (Motion), an educational program package in 5 chapters. It teaches areas such as speed, average speed, relativity of movement, free fall and vibrations. This product bears the code "ED 74", one more missing piece found! The second interesting addition is the original TAP file for A hős lovag (The Heroic Knight), an adventure game. With this file, the archive for that game is finally complete. By the way, it's from Brazil, who is thanked on the loading screen of the game. Finally we have one more new addition: Fizikai Mérések (Physics Measurements). We've known about this release for a long time, since it was added to the database back in 2004, but we now have a TAP file for it. (Still no cover, but it's a start!)

Big thanks to Lacus for these! Be sure to be on the lookout for old treasures: our archive is still not complete!

New Fingers Malone Remake In The Works!
Posted by Csabo on 2009-11-02
Fingers Malone RemakeHomeGnome sent us word that he is working on a new Fingers Malone remake for the PC. You can follow the development process here (in Hungarian). From the preview images it looks pretty neat! The current development plans show playable levels by the end of this month.

This brings up an interesting question: does anyone know if the author should ask permission from anyone before releasing this game? If so, should it be the author (Doug Turner, who posted on our forum before), or the company who released the game? Talk it out on the forum!
