INTRO
----------------------------------------
SORRY,SORRY,SORRY!
I KNOW,I SPENT A LOT OF TIME TO RELEASE
THIS ISSUE,BUT I WAS TAKEN FROM EXAMS,
JOB,ARMY SERVICE,LOVE AFFAIRS AND LAST I
HAD TO RETURN IN SALERNO BECAUSE OF THE
EASTER VACATIONS. MOREOVER,THIS GREAT
MUSIC BECAME VERY HARD TO COMPOSE...BUT
I COMPLETED IT! KRISZTINA,IT'S DEDICATED
TO YOU!
MUSICS ARE: "HOME" BY DEPECHE MODE,FROM
THE ALBUM "ULTRA".
"CRYSTAL CAVE".

BIG BUNCH OF NEWS AND REVIEWS THIS TIME,
AND YOU CAN READ A GREAT INTERVIEW.
BUT IF YOU WATCH THE CHARTS YOU NOTICE
THAT MOLDI JUST RELEASED HIS MEGADEMO.
I NEVER SEEN IT! AND I LOST ANY CONTACT
WITH HIM SEVERAL MONTHS AGO! WHERE AND
WHY WAS STOPPED THE SPREAD OF THIS
STUFF? WHERE ARE YOU,MOLDI?
ANOTHER BIG FRUIT DISAPPEARED:CHRONOS.
I'M TRYING TO CONTACT HIM BUT HE SEEMS
VANISHED...
APROPO,DID YOU SEE THE RESULTS OF
LOGOCOMPO? DO YOU THINK THAT I JUDGED
WELL? DO YOU THINK THAT I NEED A NEW
PAIR OF GLASSES? WRITE TO ME YOUR
IMPRESSIONS.
ULTIMATE WORDS WASTED ABOUT REDDI:THERE
IS PEOPLE WHO SENT HIM SOMETHING AS 100
DM WITHOUT RECEIVE ANSWER. AT THIS POINT
COULD NOT BE A SIN WRITE THAT...REDDI
IS AN ECCENTRIC THIEF. WHEN I RECEIVE
VOTES FOR HIM I CAN'T HOLD A DISGUSTED
SMILE.
EVERY TIME I HAVE TO WRITE THIS CHAPTER
I FORGET ALL. SO I THINK IS BETTER TO
STOP USING MY BAD ENGLISH NOW.

GREETINGS TO ANY +4 FANATIC!

PS:HAEGAR,NOW YOU COMFORTABLY CAN SELECT

DEMO REVIEWS
----------------------------------------
NAME:HUNGARIAN HOUSE ONLY 2
AUTHOR:SENSOR/NST
TYPE:DEMO,MULTIFILE

THIS DEMO PREVIEW REPRESENTS THE
RE-ENTERING IN SCENE OF A GREAT +4 CREW:
NEW SYSTEM TECHNOLOGY. SENSOR RECORDED
THREE NICE TECHNO PIECES AT "OXYGEN
STUDIO",THEN HE PASSED THOSE THROUGHT
THE +4. PROBABLY,THE FINAL VERSION WILL
CONTAINS MORE MUSICS,BUT AT THIS POINT
THE OVERALL AND TEDSOUND PERCENTUAGES
CAN'T REACH HIGH VALUES BECAUSE THE
SMALL AMOUNT OF AVAILABLE TUNES. THIS
DEMO SHOWS A PRETTY DESIGN,THANK TO
REFINEMENTS LIKE THE IRQ TRACKLOADER OR
THE "MOVE-WHEN-DISAPPEAR" LETTERS. ABOUT
THE QUALITY OF DIGIS:WELL SAMPLED AND
NICE TO LISTEN TO. STAY TUNED FOR THE
REVIEW OF THE COMPLETE NST'S DIGIBOX
WHEN READY,'CAUSE THIS PROMODISK SEEMS
TO PROMISE BIG THINGS.

NAME:5 MAGICS
AUTHOR:GODS OF THE UNIVERSE
TYPE:DEMO,MULTIFILE

FINALLY! WE'RE WAITING FOR A NEW GOTU
DEMO SINCE YEARS,AND NOW WE GET THIS
ONE,CODE BY LAVINA AND CROWN,GRAPHICS BY
HARRY AND LAVINA.
5 MAGICS DOESN'T CARE TO SHOW BEAUTIFUL
PICTURES OR COMPULSIVE MUSICS,BUT WHAT
+4 CAN DO WITH ITS 2.2 MHZ CPU. FIRST
PART SHOWS AN UGLY LOGO,THEN A NOT BAD
CHESSBOARD ZOOMING WITH A STRANGE
EFFECT:SEEMS THAT THE BOARD "BUBBLEING"
LEFT AND RIGHT WHEN ZOOMED. THE FUNNYBOX
EFFECT IN THE SECOND PART FEELS LIKE TOO
SIMPLE,BUT THE THIRD PART IS THE BEST:
CROWN ENLARGES THE SCREEN UP TO 42
COLUMNS AND DESCRIBES THIS WITH A PRETTY
CYCLING Y-SCROLL. GOOD THE FOURTH PART
TOO:NICE PLASMA,ONLY SCHEMATIC A BIT,
CHESSBOARD EFFECT ON LOGO AND WAVE
SCROLLER. THE FIFTH AND LAST PART SHOWS
A SINUS MORPH,TOTTERING A BIT BUT VERY
WELL CODED. ONLY TWO MUSICS ARE PRESENT;
ALL THE LOGOS,APART OF THE FIRST,ARE
PROFESSIONALLY DRAWN. IF THE DESIGN OF
THIS DEMO WAS MOST CURED,IT SHOULD BE
INCLUDED IN THE DEMOS HEAVEN... HOWEVER
IT REMAINS A GOOD PRODUCTION. PLEASE
GOTU,STILL CODE!

GAME REVIEWS
----------------------------------------
NAME:MYSTIC DIAMOND,SECRET AGENT,
PARASTORM,DEEPSPACE
AUTHOR:LAVINA/GOTU
TYPE:ADVENTURE,ONE FILE

THESE ADVENTURE GAMES ARE CONTAINED IN
THE GOTU MEGADISK II. LAVINA MADE THEM A
LOT OF YEARS AGO,AND PRESENTED HIMSELF
WITH THESE IN THE +4 SCENE IN EARLY '90.
THE COMPLETE SET CONTAINS "X-BASE" TOO,
SPREADED AND REVIEWED BY ME FEW
TIMESLICES AGO. NOW WE CAN PLAY THEM IN
THEIR ENGLISH TRANSLATION,THANKING THE
PACIENCE OF THEIR CREATOR.
ALL CODES ARE IN BASIC,NOT BADLY
USED BUT ALMOST SIMPLE;DON'T MISS SOME
TED MUSIC AND JINGLES,AND THE END OF
"MYSTIC DIAMOND" SHOWS A BIT OF GRAPHICS
IN CLASSIC BASIC. AS INTRO FOR ALL THE
PROGRAMS THERE'S A COMMON PRESENTATION,
MUTE BUT PRETTY.
"MYSTIC DIAMOND" USES ALMOST THE SAME
"VERB-AND-THEN-OBJECT" PARSER AS FOR
"X-BASE":VERY DISAPPOINTING. THE STORY
IS LESS COMPULSIVE THAN "X-BASE" BUT THE
PROBLEM SOLVING IS MORE INTERESTING.
"SECRET AGENT" SHOWS A BETTER VERSION OF
THIS KIND OF PARSER,PLUS THE VERBS LIST
AVAILABLE ANYTIME;OFTEN,THERE IS A
NICEST CHALLENGE IN SOLVING.
THIS CRESCENDO CONTINUES IN "PARASTORM",
IN WHICH FINALLY YOU MUST USE A
VERB+OBJECT PARSER,SUPPORTED BY SEVERAL
ABBREVIATIONS,AND HEAR A GOOD TEDMUSIC
INTRO;THE STORY IS POSITIVELY
PARTICULAR.
"DEEPSPACE" IS PROBABLY THE BEST OF FIVE
'CAUSE OF THE GOOD HISTORY AND SOME NICE
PROBLEMS. UNFORTUNATELY THESE LAST TWO
DON'T SUPPORT THE VERB LIST.

NAME:WAXWORKS,THE CIRCUS,ESCAPE FROM
PULSAR 7,TIME MACHINE
AUTHOR:CROWN/GOTU
TYPE:ADVENTURE,ONE FILE

THESE ADVENTURE GAMES CONVERTED BY CROWN
ARE DIRECT SISTERS OF OTHER ONES
PREVIOUSLY CONVERTED ON +4,AS "WIZARD OF
AKYRZ". SO YOU JUST KNOW HOW MUCH IS THE
PARSES YOU'LL USE IN:VERB+OBJECT,
LOAD/SAVE AND QUIT. THERE'S THE SLOW
"DRAWING GRAPHIC",FORTUNATELY
ELIMINABLE. AND EVERYONE IS PRESENTED BY
A SIMILAR INTRO. THE PRETTIEST IS
"PULSAR 7" BECAUSE OF THE BETTER
ATMOSPHERE AND THE LARGEST FREEDOM IN
MOVING IN THE VIRTUAL AMBIENT. INSTEAD,
"WAXWORKS" IS A NOT SO INTERESTING
QUEST. BEWARE OF THE INITIAL PROBLEM TO
SOLVE IN "TIME MACHINE", OR YOU'LL PLAY
IN A VERY SHORT TIME. IF YOU ARE AN
ADVENTURER,YOU'LL FIND A GOOD AMOUNT OF
PATHS TO WALK AND PROBLEMS TO SOLVE. SO,
SAY THANKS TO CROWN.

NAME:STACK'EM II
AUTHOR:THE BUSH RAT/TBS
TYPE:ARCADE,MULTIFILE,HI-SCORES

ANOTHER GAME CODED BY JIM HEHL. THIS GUY
USED THE BASIC V3.5 VERY WELL THIS TIME
TOO. LEAVING HIS TIPICAL CARD GAME,THIS
ONE IS A CLONE OF "COLOURS" GAME,LIKE
THE VERY GOOD "TWINDOWN" CONVERTED BY
BAG OR THE GOOD "COLUMNS" BY SYNERGY.
NO SOUNDS IN IT,BUT SOME GOOD OPTIONS AS
STOREABLE HI-SCORES TABLE,PAUSE,QUIT AND
INSTRUCTIONS;YOU CAN PLAY WITH KEYBOARD
OF JOYSTICK. THE GAME IS VERY PLAYABLE
BUT I THINK THAT THIS KIND OF GAME NEEDS
AN INCREASING SPEED LEVEL:TRYING TO BEAT
HI-SCORE AT THE SAME SPEED WITH NO
BONUSES FOR MULTIPLE ERASED LINES SHOULD
BECOME BORING A BIT...

NAME:X-WINGS V2.0
AUTHOR:PAUL/GOTU
TYPE:SIMULATION,ONE FILE

AFTER THE LONG TIME,PAUL RELEASES THE
PERFECT CONVERTION OF "STARWARS" FROM
C64. SOME YEARS AGO,IT TOOKS AN OVERALL
OF 74% ON THE C64 MAG "ZZAP!",'CAUSE
2.2 MHZ IS TOO LITTLE FREQUENCE TO MOVE
VECTORS AT A CERTAIN SPEED,AS IN ARCADE
VERSION. IT'S A GREAT CONVERTION,ONLY
MISSING OF THE DIGI INTRO AS ON C64.
OFTEN,THE LITTLE LOGO "STARWARS" ON
VECTORS LOOKS STRANGE A BIT.
PROBABLY THE RIGHT OVERALL VALUE I HAVE
TO GIVE IT HAS TO BE SOMETHING LIKE 88%,
UNTIL I FOUND A VERY UGLY BUG:IN THE
TOWERS SECTION ONE OF THOSE HAS
COMPLETELY FAILING VECTORDATA! THIS
CREATES A VERY COMPLEX FIGURE THAT MAKES
SLOW EVERYTHING...AAARRGGH!!!
ALSO SOUND AND KEYBOARD OPTIONS AS PAUSE
AND QUIT ARE CONVERTED WELL,BUT I CAN
ONLY RETURN TO WAIT FOR A V2.1 VERSION
OF THIS GAME. PAUL:YOU ARE A GREAT
ANYWAY.

----------------------------------------
INTERVIEW
----------------------------------------
AS PROMISED,THIS ISSUE CONTAINS A GREAT
INTERVIEW:CROWN/GOTU GENTLY ANSWERED TO
ALL MY QUESTIONS. NO WASTED WORDS,READ
THE INTERVIEW!

- GIMME YOUR ANAGRAPHIC DATA,EXPLAIN
YOUR NICKNAME,TELL ME EVERYTHING ABOUT
TIBOR...

WELL,MY NAME IS TIBOR BICSO,BORN
11.23.1970. I LIVE IN BUDAPEST,HUNGARY.
CURRENTLY I'M EMPLOYED AS GAME DEVELOPER
AT HUMAN SOFT LTD.,A HUNGARIAN BASED
GAME DEVELOPER STUDIO,WITH AN OFFICE IN
CALIFORNIA.
I'VE WORKED ON THE FOLLOWING COMPUTERS
AND CPUS:Z80 WAS MY FIRST JOB AT THE AGE
OF 14,THERE WERE THIS Z80 BASED ROBOTRON
TYPEWRITERS HERE WITHOUT ANY INFO ON
THEM,MY JOB WAS TO FIND OUT HOW ONE
CAN PROGRAM ITS DISPLAY,KEYBOARD,HOW ONE
CAN PRINT WITH IT,AND USING THIS INFO I
HAD TO WRITE A SIMPLE MONITOR PROGRAM,
WHICH THEY LATER USED TO DEVELOPE
SOFTWARE FOR CONNECTING THIS TYPEWRITER
TO A C64 AS A PRINTER...IT HAD VERY NICE
LOOKING LETTERS. ON THIS OCCASION I
LEARNED THE BASICS OF MACHINE LANGUAGE,
+4,AMIGA,SEGA GENESIS,SEGA GENESIS CD,
SEGA PICO,3DO,M2,PC.
I HAVE 2 PUBLISHED TITLES:"STAR TREK
DEEP SPACE 9:CROSSROADS OF TIME"ON SEGA
GENESIS,AND "PROFESSOR PICO AND THE
PAINTBOX PUZZLE" ON SEGA PICO. I'M
CURRENTLY WORKING ON A CAR GAME FOR PC,
THIS PROJECT IS ALREADY 2 YEARS OLD,BUT
WE CHANGED DESIGN CONCEPTS AT LEAST 3
TIMES UNTIL NOW.
MI NICKNAME IS NOT A NICKNAME:WHEN PIGMY
MADE HIS "GAME MUSIC 1-9" I HAD TO FIND
AN ALIAS,SO I PICKED A SIMPLE ENGLISH
WORD AND THAT'S IT.

- TALK ABOUT YOUR +4 CAREER STORY.

HMMMM... I'VE DONE THE FOLLOWING THINGS
ON +4:TWIN KINGDOM VALLEY,ONE-ON-ONE,
IRON MAIDEN DEMO,DIGITAL DREAMS,CROWN'S
PICTURE SHOW,SHIP DEMO,DUPLICATOR,90 SEC
COPY,A PICTURE CONVERTER,DOUBLE HACK'EM.
WELL,I GUESS THAT IS NOT TOO MUCH...I
WAS A LAZY GUY THEN...

- WHY DID YOU LEAVE THE SCENE AND WHY
DID YOU RETURN?

WELL,I'VE BOUGHT AN AMIGA AND THAT WAS
IT. I'VE SEEN RECENTLY THE EMULATOR FROM
MIKE DAILLY AND I GOT EXCITED ABOUT IT,
SO I STARTED A MAILING THREAD WITH HIM,
AND I GUESS HELPED HIM A LITTLE BIT.
THEN LAVINA/GOTU OFFERED TO JOIN GOTU.
- TALK ABOUT YOUR FUTURE PROJECTS.

WELL,FIRST CURRENT THINGS:I'VE CONVERTED
IN '89 A PLATINE LAYOUT PROGRAM CALLED
"PLATINE 64" FROM DATA BECKER. IT WAS
NEVER RELEASED AS THERE MIGHT BE STILL
LURKING SOME BUGS INSIDE. IT'S NOW ON
BETA TEST...SO TO SAY. IF SOMEONE IS
INTERESTED IN HELPING ME FINDING BUGS IN
IT OR JUST CHECKING IF IT'S COMPLETE
SHOULD WRITE TO ME AND I WILL SEND IT
VIA EMAIL TO HIM;NO DISK SWAPPING,NO
SNAIL-MAIL!
THERE WILL BE A GOTU DEMO CALLED "5
MAGICS",AND I WILL WRITE ONE OR TWO
PARTS INTO IT. CURRENTLY I MANAGED TO
OPEN UP THE SCREEN SIDEWISE AND 42 CHARS
ARE VISIBLE!!! IT'S POSSIBLE BUT NOT
SURE THAT I CAN MANAGE TO MAKE A 43
CHARS WIDE SCREEN. I'M PLANNING TO MAKE
A REMAKE OF "IRON MAIDEN DEMO",WITH LOT
BETTER SOUNDS...
THERE COULD BE ALSO AN ORIGINAL PLATFORM
GAME COMING,BUT THIS IS REALLY VAGUE AT
THIS POINT OF TIME.
AND OF COURSE LOTS OF C64 CONVERSIONS,I
HOPE.

- WHICH GUY,DEMO,GAME ARE THE BEST ON +4
FOR YOU?

ACTUALLY I'M MISSING AROUND 8 YEARS OF
SCENE LIFE,SO I REALLY DON'T KNOW THE
CURRENT GUYS AND STUFF,SO IT IS REALLY
HARD TO NAME SOME. FROM THE OLD TIMES
PIGMY WAS COOL,AND LATER CSORY DID SOME
COOL STUFF.
GAME:THERE WERE QUITE A FEW GOOD BUT FOR
ME "ELITE" AND "BARD'S TALE III" WAS THE
BEST;THERE WERE HUNDREDS WHICH I REALLY
LIKED TO PLAY,ESPECIALLY "ONE-ON-ONE".
DEMOS:FROM WHAT I SAW FROM RECENT STUFF,
WHICH IS 1% OF WHAT I'M MISSING,"GENETIC
FAULTY" IS PRETTY COOL...
