Moldi's Treasure 7/10
Posted by Luca on 2015-11-21
No! Nononono! This must reach an end, once forever. Two dozens months passed since we've saved the opportunity to release another big pack of rare and unreleased stuff dripping from the archive donated to us by Moldi, after we'd promised short times. It's gonna happen no more, let's start our run from this 7th bunch of software straight to the 10th and last!

ÉvezredekNow we reached the final steps to accomplish this project of gigantic update, and many primary objectives have been profusely threated and solved, but this 7th appointment can still show you a further one: we've finally begun to organize the Évezredek (Millennia), a series of quiz game's programs made for elementary school's kids to teach'em the Hungarian history. For what we'd been able to understand, Évezredek consists of 20 or 24 individual releases on cassette, most of the times containing two distinct programs focused on different difficulty degrees. The nine .PRG files we've found into our treasure chest have been added to some spare others we just stored along the past years, and now the whole matter gets a reasonable shape overall. Now there's a good base where to start from in order to achieve the complete series!

The other soul of this 7th appointment with the Moldi's gems concerns about the different versions of what we've just got. Alternative releases, improved disks, fixed stuff, reduced prods, they're just all around us. Általános Szöveg És Rajz Szerkesztő has been also spreaded as complete D64; Two In One also exists as V2 version, released just one day after the diffusely known first one; Wizard Of Wor (TCFS)'s 43K big .PRG uses the TCFS' defender packer, but it's beaten to the ground by the alternative file that simply uses Cruel-Crunch V2.0++ and its less-than-30K result; Pirates boasts an advanced version working in one single file with dedicated instructions file apart; somebody has spreaded a weird onefile version of The Jet 2.0; somebody else (we dunno who he is, at the moment...) has done a tougher challenge, packing Winter Events in one single, flawlessly working, file! Yes, no loading needed anymore!
Oh, and we have a winner here too! The legends say: a neighbour of TCFS who hasn't got a disk driver, did ask to him for a tape version of Blue Angel 69. Quite impossible, one would argue, due to the amount of different bitmaps displayed under the board, level after level. Anyway, if you're not a newbie in the Plus/4 scene, you should well know the genius of our mate Tamás. So, he came out with this Blue Angel 69 V3.1 release, apparently spreaded on tape for real, with a turbo tape loader coded by TCFS himself. Once loaded, the program unpacks and saves the needed graphics on the next slice of the tape in order to free the memory for the game itself, then this graphics will eventually be loaded once the game advances. 24 years have passed, but TCFS leaves us astonished again!

48 Hours Party (Gentlemen)File catalogs often show their fundamental role in the unveiling of rare hidden or unreleased stuff, and that's the reason why the 7th bunch intends to put out some newer ones: Alex's Catalog 1.0, Alex's Catalog 2.0 and EDC's Stuffs (apropos: who really is Alex of GS? "That's the old nick of W-Man" Murphy has told us ;) ). And when we talk about "stuff to flush out" we mean software like TIT-anic demo, most rare compared to TIT-anic 2; like Space Taxy, a fully working game created by St.GLS in his very last activity on Plus/4; like 48 Hours Party (Gentlemen), the lost part that W-Man ("RTL" at that time) coded to join the 48 Hours Party cooperation demo, but didn't get included (why?); like Feasibility Experiment (Csory), a conversion of the famous C64 graphic adventure done by Csory...6 years before the well known Crown's one; like Puzzle 09, the lost one in the Puzzle Collection, the missing piece that comes to complete a puzzle; like Relax Demo, apparently the very first demo production released by Larry, when he still was...Kibasoft!
Aside the cited ones till now, other programs are included, some basic disk tools, some education stuff, one game's crack we didn't have, some digi demos, one scrolltext editor made for Skull's internal usage, a weird program which's maybe an info file maybe a magazine's attempt.

Infó MellékletAs the tradition needs, here's the complete list for the 7th batch, hope you're gonna like all of them, prepare yoursef for the forthcoming three: Fast Format 08, Kristalyoszcillatorok, Általános Szöveg És Rajz Szerkesztő (disk), Two In One V2, Feasibility Experiment (Csory), Bard's Tale III Songs, B.H.C., Texteditor V1.1, Bridgehead (crack), Relax Demo, Alex's Catalog 1.0, Alex's Catalog 2.0, Advertising, Space Taxy, Puzzle 09, Disk-eddie, Eprom Packer V9.1, Infó Melléklet, Fast Backup 1551 D9, Fast-load 1551 (Starsoft), Fast Backup 1551 (Magnetic System), Fastload 1551 V4, Kerek Bar, Évezredek III (AB), Évezredek IX (AB), Évezredek IX (CD), Évezredek V (AB), Évezredek V (CD), Évezredek VI (AB), Évezredek XIII (AB), Évezredek XIII (CD), Évezredek XX (CD), Microscopy, EDC's Stuffs, Pirates (version), Miner 410er, 48 Hours Party (Gentlemen), Dizzy V3.5, Stick Or Twist, The Jet 2.0 (tape), Winter Events (onefile), Wizard Of Wor (TCFS) (alternative), Blue Angel 69 V3.1, TIT-anic, Crash (NBS), Chubby Checker.

Gate of Power!
Posted by Csabo on 2015-11-16
Gate of PowerWe don't have a good explanation as to why this game is announced now, as opposed to last year, but nevertheless, here's Gate of Power!

A new adventure awaits: set out to see the world in the shoes of Fred Nelson, archaeologist. Your quest is to find the mysterious gate of power, which, according to ancient records, is somewhere in Asia. Visit many exotic locations while making friends and collecting clues. Test your skills and see if you pass the ultimate test, that is IF you manage to stay alive!

The game was coded by angelsoft, and is accompanied by music from Csabo. It requires a disk drive, but it runs on any stock C16 (PAL or NTSC)! The current version was released in time for the DoReCo party in Germany. It was shown at the party to some great feedback. It is still in development (of sorts), with a hopefully final version forthcoming, but it's definitely playable now. So get to it :-) (As an added bonus, you can enjoy a remix of the soundtrack.)

Babel Baby!
Posted by Csabo on 2015-11-14
My The Best DemoIn the world of Plus/4, there are no bad things to worry about, only retro demos to enjoy. Surely there must be some folks out there, who are happy when old stuff is found?

Babel Baby was recently added to the database. In our spare time, we slowly dig though all programs, and this release showed up in several personal catalogs. I decided to ask Skoro about it: he said he had it on a disk, but it was unfortunately damaged... But as a consolation prize, he sent me no less than 9 programs which were previously missing from the database. Here's the full list:

Characters, Skoro's Music Box, The Last Demo From Assassin Crew, Demonsdom +4 (Skoro's trainer version), My The Best Demo, Oliver Otthona +4 (Skoro's trainer version), Skoro's Char 2, Skoro's Char 3, Skoro's Char 5.

So who will babel our baby? Only time will tell.

Aramir's All-in!
Posted by Luca on 2015-11-13
GhostbustersYou all know that we at Plus/4 World are used to keeping our promises, always, even if sometimes the processes' schedules sustain heavy delays. So, we still have some older open matters to complete on the software donors' side, and new some contributions too!

Due to the necessity of releasing that flow, it's now time to push on spitting out all the decanting software which has been waiting for months. The first in the row to fall under our merciless publishing machine is the Aramir's collection, that fantastic bunch of assorted stuff sneaked thru the big software libraries of Csaba Egri. Our mate Csaba filtered some very rare additions, including PRGs, D64s, TAPs, covers and other mixed material, just to send 'em to us with an useful information text file.

IgekotokWe're talking about rarities like the very unique TAP of Démonok Birodalma with IRQ loader, or the only known release from Kerysoft (a user we've seen in the mags' citations only till now), better or alternative covers for several uncommon releases (Csavargás A Gombák Birodalmában, Legicsata...), alternative/older versions we didn't have (FLI Editor, A Hős Lovag...) and tons of new software previously unknown. Read the whole list of added stuff on the forum thread opened by Aramir one year ago.

Deng! The bell's ring announces the end of a victorious first round in our fight to enlarge the database. And for now, stay tuned to see the forthcoming ones!
