More News From Newsstands
Posted by Luca on 2013-07-31
Super VIC20-C16How many the hell they were? They show up anywhere, especially on eBay, where we consume our best money to achieve the completeness of our archive!

Yes, it's time again for some Italian newsstand's compilations, this time even more rare, and this represents a further approach to the forthcoming challenge against the really long-standing series of compilations with hacked and re-hacked games with chronological crosslinks between them. This update looks forward to find a path of managing those tough nuts, starting to store, where possible, both PRGs and TAPs of any single entry spending time in order to cut the original TAP into the right slices. Congruence of an archive consumes time, aware of this? ;)

First of all, we discovered that Special VIC20 C16 hadn't been the one and only ride of Pubblirome in the field of C16 games'hacking and rereleasing. There's Super VIC20-C16 too, and the two compilations have in common some of the games. We've also borrowed Input VIC20-C16, a smaller Pubblirome compilation of hacked games, again with several crosslinked titles, but saved with a different loader based on Turbo Tape.
Newsstands' power again, with two issues of "Software Club" recovered: Software Club #09 and Software Club #12, containing themself-hacked games like Invaders (Systems) (!) and weird utilities like Chef. And let's go on with C16 Best, complete with its dedicated instructions paper, learn how to C16 with Commodore 16 Per Te, take advantage of many utilities with Essenziali E Routine and Programmi Per C16.

C16 Best (Software Manual)Also added, several tapes of hacked games, especially from Visiogame, even like two missing ones we're in search for: Triple Decker 4, and that Maze Builder tape spreaded in Educational Line N1, which turned out to be an editor for Small Jones game released in bundle with it!
Last but not least, two quick addons in the publications field: Commodore 16 Guida All'Utente as the user manual sold in Italy with the C16, and a big 57Mb PDF of Super Commodore Commodore 16 2.

A list of the addons follows: C16 Best (+paper), Essenziali E Routine, Commodore 16 Per Te, Jet Mission, Karate Master, Maze Builder, Programmi Per C16, Software Club #09, Software Club #12, Chef, Char Editor (Systems), Graphics (Systems), Soldiers, Space Fortress (tape), Star Wars (Visiogame), Triple Decker 4, Zodiac (crack), Super VIC20-C16, Anatomia, Astronavi Aliene, Breakout, Cruise, Il Genio, Invaders (Systems), L'Esorcista, Vecchio West, Super Commodore Commodore 16 2 (magazine), Agente Segreto (tape), Astronave Talpa (tape), Corsa Sul Fiume (tape), Il Ladro (tape), Il Legionario (tape), La Morte Nera (tape), La Spia (tape), Le Chiavi (tape), Lupo Di Mare (tape), Missione Su Marte, Commodore 16 Guida All'Utente (manual), Biss (tape), Guerra Totale (tape), Il Pizzaiolo (tape), Invasione 2000 (tape), Scacchi (tape), Tennis (Pubblirome) (tape), Velocipede (tape), Autostrada (tape), Meteorite (Pubblirome) (tape), Tennis (Pubblirome) (tape), Il Pittore (tape), World Games 2, Off-shore, Soccer, Pool, Flushing Meadows.

Oh, and new tapes have been bought, so they are coming too, war is not over yet!

PETSCII Game Tree Some Converted
Posted by Luca on 2013-07-15
Tree SomeIn a past far far away, all of us had a run animating weird figures by assembling those PETSCII bits of graphics. Someone improved that particular skill and coded games based on that. On C64, The Skull has been well known just because of his funny PETSCII based BASIC games.

Luca/FIRE celebrates the strange brilliance of PETSCII gaming, converting to Plus/4 Tree Some, the most original one in The Skull ludography! The Nature has to defend by itself against all humans: they're simply men whereas you're a huge tree, so kick'em hard on their heads. Which side will prevail today?

Árok Party 2013 Releases!
Posted by Csabo on 2013-07-06
Plus4 Arok 2013The wait for those of us who could not attend is over: Chronos/ACW supplied us with the freshest warez on the scene. We're talking about the releases from Arok 2013 (AKA. Arok 15), the 8-bit retro-computer party that was held in Ajkarendek, Hungary over the weekend. Head on over to the New Stuff section now!

Unfortunately there was no demo this year, but plenty of nice pictures and a much-awaited preview of Adventures In Time 2 was released. Congrats and thanks to all the guys who produced stuff for this party. It must have been a blast, we're anxiously awaiting party reports, so stay tuned.

Update: Partial results (and correct release names) are out, check the compos page.

Update #2: Photos/video of the event, courtesy of Chronos.

Update #3: More photos of the event, courtesy of Rambo.
Carrion has won both the gfx compos at Árok and Silesia parties, respectively with a Plus/4 picture and a C64 picture. After very few days, he tested how the latter would look as a Plus/4 MFLI, and the result is S7! Grass also has done the opposite, converting GCV to C64 NUFLI format for fun.

Update #4: Umpfh, it looks like the Berlin wall inbetween formats and machines has been shot down, so who's still missing in the row? Ah yes, EleonORA C16, a conversion for any 264 machine of the wonderful HiRes picture that Leon sent in the mixed gfx compo, quickly put up by Luca/FIRE.
