Worst 8-Bit Book Club Book Ever? The Black Book of C-128 - new Video from '8-Bit Show And Tell'
For this month's Book Club video, we look at the worst Commodore-related book in my collection: The Black Book of C-128, by Robert H. & Dell Taylor. Claiming to be a vast, authoritative reference, it's actually riddled with errors, unnecessary commas, and sometimes entirely fabricated "facts". We all make mistakes, and typically I'd go easier on it, but this book's advertising campaign was quite aggressive, claiming to be "the best reference manual on the market" and having "not one wasted page" unlike other publisher's books that would tell you "how to un-pack the C-128" and waste "ten pages on what the keys are for".
'Sonic Vamped 1&2 Pack' for Amiga (Vampire) released
SonicVamped is a port of the 2013 Android version of Sonic The Hedgehog 2 to the 68k Amiga optimised for a Vampire V4 computer (works on V2 accelerators but not at full speed). It features many speed improvements including AMMX, direct SAGA draw with triple buffer and direct SAGA audio implementation. All of that made it possible to run at stable 60 fps gameplay on The Vampire V4.

Video shows possible port of 'Kung Fu Master' for Amiga
A few days ago the developer started working on arranging the graphics for the game and also doing a performance test to make sure the game can be ported to the A500 (0.5chip + 0.5 slow). He is pleased to say the game looks very do-able so he'll take it on. Thomas is a hardware sprite but the flying enemies are constructed from multiple bobs to save on ram and cycles.

'Turbo Chameleon' Core update 9o released
'Chameleon' is an extremely user-friendly multipurpose C64 cartridge that can be used without opening the computer. It is just plugged to the expansion port of the C64. It can also be operated as a stand-alone unit (since it's basically an FPGA computer like the C-One in a C64 cartridge case), replacing the computer, the floppy drive and the heavy power supply. A docking station providing 4 joystick ports and connectors for an Amiga or C-64 keyboard is available. New in this core, besides several bugfixes: FPGA Core: - Added 720x576 resolutions. Filebrowser: - G64 files can be autostarted by pressing RETURN on them in the file browser. - D64 and G64 files can be autostarted by using CBM+E (execute) action, which is also available in the file-action menu (space). - enabled copying files into D64 images. - (re)enabled "rename" in the file-action (space) menu in CDTV mode.

Axis/Cascade is no more. We are all still shaken by the unexpected death of our friend and group mate Patrick aka Axis/Cascade. We wanted to express our sorrow, so I coded a little intro, which you can find in the C64 demo section of this page. The following text is a rough excerpt taken from the scroller:
Dear Patrick, may this be the condolence from the the group that was co-founded by you long time ago. We want to give you our last salute. I (Zeldin) know how much you were breathing the spirit of the scene. That's why I thought a goodbye demo would have made you happy. You and me exchanged lots of mails about how much we both enjoyed the good ol' days and of course: how much we miss them... It was this tie that emotionally connected us for over 15 years. Thanks for all your help in supporting the group and your indefatigable endeavour in spreading our name. Your tattoos were legendary! Thanks for your work on fb and youtube. Your channels were appreciated by a lot of people. Thanks for being such a good chap. You'll be sorely missed!!!
Mach's gut, Patrick... den Adler im Herzen, sge4ever!
