Two Three Most Wanted And More
Posted by Luca on 2013-05-20
Wonder 6Our persisting fight against the "Missing software" tagging has won against other celebrated hidden software we were looking for.

Rising out of nowhere, in the very end here comes Wonder 6, a most wanted demo released by The Vulture under the Men Of Science label, which we just had as broken program from several collections. Finally, now we can put that as working into the whole ser...oh wait! What's that one? Wonder 3? Yes, it's Wonder 3 from the same coder, a missing one we've absolutely never seen before! And all this means one thing only: the Wonder series is now complete! Great achievement!

Wonder 3Recoveries are not over yet, another one out of the missing software's list: it's Sound Box VII by LTA, a music box we've searched for, since someone noticed a hack of the main picture in another demo. Too early to put up a series, having three chapters overall of that, but it looks like taking shape, and this is certainly a notable step to have'em all one day.
And we wish a similar destiny will come for Picture Show 6 by Gang Soft. Previously, we've found a unique specimen of their releases, i.e. the 7th chapter. A single one means nothing, two in a row begin to turn into a new series to search for...

Sound Box VIIAdditional stuff follows. First of all, some SD2IEC utilities we've missed before, like CBM FileBrowser 16 V1.5 and Dracopy 1.0d Plus4. Follows, a couple of very ancient Kruk's demos: Greased Lightning (Kruss) and Horror Demo; a very early picture by Crash at the time he was known as "Monster Graphics: Mach Mit; a German educational program about a Russian space program called Projekt Phobos. In the end, some minor stuff which has to be included in the archive (in some cases, though their controversial content): Tomorrow, Alpensound, Dream-woman, La Marseillaise, Move Your Feet, Plus4-power Demo, Porno (HR), Porno Show II, Sex Cartoons I, Strip 16, Strip And Slide, Swedish Girl, Work Hard.

Last little gem: Tynesoft C16 Plus4 Catalogue III, the third promotional booklet released by Tynesoft, in PDF format.

Spanish Rockets Against Aliens!

Galaxy WarsUnexpected game's releases are the sceners best friends!

We wanna thank marcos64 for the advice, we would never be aware of this juicy conversion in BASIC of a classic Taito coinop's milestone. Actually, Galaxy Wars is a conversion of this arcade machine developed by Universal Co. Ltd. and distributed by the Japanese publisher in the year 1979.

Daniel Crespo Andrés (aka dancresp), a Spanish ZX Spectrum coder (which doesn't hide his interest for other machines too!), has decided to try out the capabilities of the BASIC V3.5, as he found it much more comfortable than the most famous V2.0, and the result is this sweet'n'neat conversion which also seems to be quite enjoyable to play with!

We hope that dancresp would have a long experiencing on the C16, and right now we're looking forward for further software from him!

Incoming TAPs And Other Previosly Missing Ones
Posted by Luca on 2013-05-07
BridgeheadSaboteur!The MirrorContributors FTW!! This community simply shine, when we call and you promptly react!
You all know we tagged all the know-but-missing stuff with the "WANTED" word in the notes, in order to have an easy searching for anyone that can help us in feeding our/your prefer archive. Well, our little advice in the forum has been enough for MIK to push him in a loooong session of tapes dumping and covers scanning. And this is the fantastic result he got!

Finally, we've got tapes of: Chopper War, Corman, Fire Ant (no fastload), Heebie Jeebies, Invaders (no fastload), Jet Set Willy II, Ping Pong, Pizza Pete, Raider, Skelby, Slippery Sid, Space Sweep (no fastload), Sqij, The Mirror, The Wizard And The Princess, Williamsburg (Adventure 3) and the famous broken version of Xargon's Revenge re-released on Omnibus II compilation!
And we've got several covers too, some fresh new, some replacements as better ones: Bridgehead, Saboteur!, The Mirror, Mercenary - Escape From Targ (disk version's back cover), Cassette Database. To these ones from MIK, we've added a rare view of the Learner Pack Software box.

Plus GraphSurprises are not over! gc841, alias Gary Cooper (his Sabre Wulf conversion has just been reviewed, see the forum!) did a great work to spread worldwide a rare gem: Plus Graph by David W. Johnson, released in Christmas 1984 both as a standalone utility and as an integration to the Plus/4 3-Plus-1 software!
Thanks to Gary, now we have the disk, the additional material and the whole manual for it!

Let's complete this big giveaway with these two further publications. It's C16 Chris's turn to contribute, with new covers and the whole manual for Company Pac 123 as PDF. And last, courtesy of DLH's Commodore Archive, here comes the extra paper from "Your Commodore" issue 50 entirely dedicated to the C16/Plus4, as PDF again: C16 And Plus/4 Essential Guide.

Hey, absolutely don't believe all this boon would quench our thirst! We're still waiting for your own contribute! Search the WANTED tag, then scan dump copy and finally send to us! ;)

HVTC Update May 2013
Posted by Luca on 2013-05-05
Further updates of the High Voltage TED Collection, aka HVTC, have been procrastinated several times, just because the near future of the whole project is closely related to the development of .C8M as the proper format for TED tunes. Why releasing new files with custom code for multiple tunes, if all this effort will be trashed out once .C8M will be here on this earth?

Well, an answer exists, and it sounds like topsy-turvy: a conversion to .C8M has to be done anyway, meanwhile let's make the collection grow. And that's why a new version of HVTC is out today!

We've reached the notable number of 330 single files overall, as usual both "pure as they are" and straight runnable to play, plus some fixes here and there (i.e.: added the missing jingle in Harvey Headbanger's file).
Csabo offered all his files in both formats, completing his own folder, Braintron's folder is now completed too, and several new authors have been added, with some very hard hacks succesfully included (Oszkár A Lovag, Oblido...). Metamerism's tune is still missing, but Degauss has promised to release a standalone prg for it quite soon, and that'll become the first file to store for the next update ;)

Don't forget to completely delete the whole previous collection (that's the way to do at any new update!), then download/unzip the new one!

UPDATE: sorry for the mistake, the right link to the ZIP file is on now!
