2016 - The Year in Review
Posted by Csabo on 2016-12-31
Wow, the last one of these was 10 years ago. And, since no-one has asked for them ever since, here it is: 2016 - The Year in Review, from the Plus/4's point of view. Here we are in the truly fortunate position to examine last year in 8 bits: no deaths, no voting upsets (unless you count CD5 :-)), only happy news. Let's see then!

Emulators
Well, we pretty much only have YAPE left, and it saw 3 updates this year (1.0.9, 1.0.10, 1.0.11). Additionally, the JS version of YAPE came online on April 1st (along with some April Fools jokes): this is a really cool feature. Now, if you like, you can send a link to that friend who would not be able to install an emulator, and they can see your favourite game or demo right in their browser. Here's to hoping this feature will get better and faster in the future. December brought us another surprise: Plus4Emu also got updated. Fingers crossed that this trend continues.

Utilities
We had some updates and some new utils this year, among them are WinMTAP 1.0, Plus4HTML, Pixel Polizei, MultiPaint, Regenerator. There are still many gaps to be filled in terms of utils, so let's hope next year we will have even more.

The Collection
Our ever-growing collection... grew some more :-) One nice addition was the original TAP for Botticelli. Big thanks to Acrid, Lacus, Perfect Darky, Sanya and everyone else I may have forgotten for sending in the scans, TAP images, and previously missing programs. I guess this would be the section to mention site updates: although our little home looks mostly like its old self, there have been some small improvements here and there.

Demos
Unfortunately we don't have much here this year. The list of demos is dominated by pictures from George and carrion. The big thing was Crackers' Demo 5. It came together nicely and it's something to be proud of. 20 parts contributed, but the main thing to note is how much buzz and excitement it generated, both in our scene, and outside of it.

Games
Finally, let's take a look at the games. Hugohunt started the year off. Next, MOS2 aka The Lands Of Zador dropped. It's a massive achievement, but IMHO it did not receive the welcome from our scene as it deserves. Pac-Pac from Skoro was a huge hit, however. There was a huge resurgence of BASIC games this year, some of them are: Blasto, Randtown Builder, Randtown Crusher, Frutty Man +4, Hitball, Brickhunter, Bombrunner, Castle Matcher. This is definitely a good trend, let's hope it continues!

That's it in a nutshell. What (Plus/4 related things!) did you like or dislike about 2016 ? Discuss on the forums! Happy New Year to everyone!

Posted by Luca on 2016-12-30
HVTC has been updated and linked, trash the old one and unpack the new version on your device. BKN and TEK tunes from Crackers' Demo 5 are still MIA, they'll be included in the next update.

Xmas Gift From Uganda: Matatu
Posted by Luca on 2016-12-28
MatatuThe race to get the medal for the very last release in 2016 continues! RKSoft has ported on the Plus/4 the african born card game he's just released some days ago on C64, together with other ppl at Hokuto Force. That's the kind of gifts we really like to receive, but...may we expect a very last 2016 release after this? Meanwhile, we can wait for the verdict playing against the Plus/4 or a human opponent, with Matatu, of course!

Castle Matcher 5-Level WIP Demo Released!
Posted by Csabo on 2016-12-13
Castle MatcherRoePipi just released a preview of his new game called Castle Matcher. Featuring his usual brand of humor, your task is to guide Vivor (a dodo bird) through a castle, and find the exit eksit. Toby the rooster, who is outside the castle, will also be an integral part of solving the puzzles. The final version will have 20 levels, so it's up to you if you want to play it now, or wait for the final version (which might take around half a year). Enjoy!

New stuff from Acrid and Sanya!
Posted by Csabo on 2016-12-07
Acrid took the time to nicely scan some missing stuff for us. Check out the covers section of Maniax, we now have the disk cover and the disk inlay, as well as an image of the diskette itself.

Sanya also sent us a small package of curios. Adatfile-Kezelo Program (tape version), Csipogos Keyboard, Double-Screen (Hungarian version), Extended Screen Intro, Hardware (alternative version) and Magyarositott BASIC. This latter one is kind of fun: it changes all the BASIC tokens to Hungarian words. Just try to program like that :-)

Further added materials are: a charset fixed Trivial Pursuit version and a working file for Disk Manager V4.0, a cracked version of The Sorcerer Of Claymorgue Castle +4, two better disks (official and alternative) for Rug Rider (in the past, we've got the cracked version, which is quite common to find anywhere as a valid copy), and a bunch of different releases regarding Fantastic Four plus a fully working patched G64 disk.

Thanks for these guys! If you have new stuff for our site, be sure to send it in!

1010!
Posted by Csabo on 2016-12-01
1010!As hinted on the forum, Csabo's new game is here! 1010! (ten-ten) is a simple "coffee-break" puzzle. It uses PETSCII graphics and can be considered a spiritual sibling of 2048 and FloodIt. Check it out and don't forget to submit your high score :-)
