Angyalbőrben - Happy New Year!
Posted by Csabo on 2013-12-31
At the moment of this writing, the European folks are already in 2014, while some of us here in North America are still stuck in the Old Year.

Anyway, a quick last minute gift for you all: C16/Plus4 in the Media. I found an old clip from a Hungarian TV show, called Angyalbőrben (literally meaning "In Angel Skin", refers to being in military uniform). One episode features a Commodore 16, and even a Hungarian C16 game! Check it out and enjoy - and be sure the read the transcript (complete with translation!) to get a clue as to what's going on.

Hopefully this section will expand more in the future. Happy New Year to all!

DunzhinKichy Maestro has already rocked the news this year, but he's back once again with an encore!

Dunzhin is a 2D Rogue-like role-playing game. Enter the dangerous dungeons to fight hordes of enemies and leveling up. The hero's main goal is the recovery of a treasure hidden on the deepest level. The levels are always randomly generated, which will ensure a fresh experience each time you choose to descend. The game accepts even complex commands, so be sure to read the documentation included on our page.

This little gem is placed under your virtual Plus/4 Christmas Tree, enjoy!

MCG's Treasure
Posted by Csabo on 2013-12-18
A Sötét JövőRecently registered but long-time Plus/4 enthusiast MCG sent us some programs that were missing from the database. Please allow me to editorialize a bit:

One in particular, A Sötét Jövő, is especially a happy find for me. There's a few reasons: the author is from my hometown (Eger). I like adventure games (and judging from recent forum threads, I'm not the old one!). But mostly, because this game was "lost" for so long.

We all had different childhoods, but most of us are here on this site because of nostalgia. For many of us Hungarian folks, CoV (Commodore World) was an important part of our lives. I religiously bought every issue, and I remember that many of us lamented the eventual end of the Plus/4 section in the magazine. In issue 24 of the magazine, the solution to this adventure was listed. I didn't have the game myself, but I didn't have that many "contacts" back in the day. (Remember, this is pre-internet times, so all scene software was spreading via snail-mail.) I figured I'd eventually get it.

Fast-forward to the era of Plus/4 World: it seems that we've looked though everyone's disk archives, and this game is just gone... Along with quite a few others. I personally thought that it's lost forever, since the author himself (Jakec) confirmed that the didn't have it.

That's where our friend MCG comes in :-) He just simply had the game! Rediscovering something like that, 22 years after it's release, is great in my opinion.

Besides that one game, he sent me a nice big batch of files, including this own program archive listing. This was at the end of October, and with "lightning" speed, the programs are already up. Well, a few things slowed me down. First, I created a page specifically for checking collection listings. It's not very fancy (quite the opposite), but it can be found here. The idea is simple, copy/paste a list of PRG files, and the page will tell you which ones we have and which ones we don't. Matching programs by filenames requires the database to be 100% up-to-date and correct, but that's probably impossible. Nevertheless, if someone wishes to use it, it's there, you can contact me for more details and/or feature requests.

The other thing where I bogged myself down was that his programs included 10 versions of Formula 1 Simulator, (1-10). After long-time gentle nagging from Gaia, I picked up Visual C# and the first small program I wrote in it was a utility that can draw the scenery and display the track from the game. (You can read more on that in this forum thread.) Armed with this utility, I was able to sort all of them; it turned out that only one was completely new, the others were variations of the existing programs.

Finally let me mention two more programs: Microdemo II was also a long-lost demo from CSM. Farm Song 4 requires viewer discretion, and I'll reserve judgement, but this was mentioned on the forum 7 years ago, and well, now we have it.

Big thanks to MCG for these! More will likely be forthcoming, so be sure to keep an eye on the New Stuff section.

There Is No 16K Only Support
Posted by Csabo on 2013-12-15
The FrogA little gift from Germany! Inspired by our famous forum thread, angelsoft did some programming and sent us 3 new versions of his games. Each new one runs just fine on stock C16 machines. Diabolo is the first one, it replaces the old Plus/4 only executable. For Pilot X, there's a new loading screen and the game autostarts (it has to be loaded with ,8,1). Last but certainly not least The Frog, which made the news recently (and was rated nicely) is now also available for Commodore 16 gamers! The new version sports a nice loading screen and has also one change in the gameplay: the levels will now progressively get harder.

Check it out and enjoy! Big thanks to Jens for these, and remember, there is no 16 only support ;-) (Or is there?)
