Podcast Episode #91 - From Vultures to Vampires with David Pleasance
David Pleasance joins AJ and Joerg today to talk about his time at Commodore, how other companies can carry on the torch, and about his new book, which is on Kickstarter. David is the former marketing director for Commodore, and gained notoriety for his use of software bundles to sell computers, especially in the UK. He's also the author of "Commodore - The Inside Story", which detailed the internal workings of Commodore during its waning years. He's following this book up with a look at the Amiga: "From Vultures to Vampires", which looks at what became of Amiga after Commodore vanished into the mist.

Making a C64/C65 compatible computer - Built-in Sprite Editor Progress
Just a quick post to report on progress on the integrated sprite editor that will be built as a plug-in to the Freeze Menu. The reason for doing this is that unlike BASIC 7 on the C128, the C65's BASIC 10 doesn't include a sprite editor. There is already this plug-in framework, where the Freeze Menu can call helper programmes for the audio mixer. So it was really just a case of making the sprite editor itself. But read on...

37 C64 games in a row - 2020 Reset64 4kb 'Craptastic' Game Compo releases available
The official compilation disk for the '2020 Reset64 4kb Craptastic Game Competition' is online and ready for download. “What the bloom’n heck does craptastic mean?”, I hear you ask. It certainly doesn’t mean crap, although it can! Craptastic can mean ludicrous, bonkers, outrageous, funny, wacky, far out, and silly. The theme simply implies that the compo was just for a bit of fun, not a serious coding competition. Competitors were welcome to make an excellent game to submit for the compo, or games that contain some humour or silliness to fit more with the theme, but they didn’t have to!

New Amiga game 'BlitzWays' released and free for download
'BlitzWays' is an oldschool concentration-demanding puzzle-deconstruction game in the fashion of MahJong and Lin-Wus Challenge. You pick pairs systematically from a large set of tiles and respect certain rules of alignment or accessibility. The game was written for the Amiga 500. 'BlitzWays' is Freeware. The Game is intended for Kids also, probably from the age of 12+. I would have played it when i was 12. Download here.

A Commodore SX-64 keyboard restoration documented on retrohax.net
Some time ago, 'Drygol' from retrohax.net was asked to fix a SX-64 keyboard. He never worked on SX-64 gear and he also didn’t know what was wrong with that keyboard. Then some pics arrived and manifested in what bad condition it was. But since he already agreed that he’ll fix it, there was no excuse and the 'party' began...

'EON AGA' - new Amiga game in development
EON is a game designed and published in 2014 for PC by François Perez, also known as Wonderboy Bobi and is currently being recreated from scratch for Amiga AGA / CD32. The devs are also investigating the possibility of investing time in adapting it to Vampire and AmigaNG (MorphOS, AmigaOS4, AROS, etc ...), but this is still not certain, everything will depend on the strengths that remain after finish the AGA version and the interest that we see in those systems. In the technical section of the game, EON is designed to make use of the dualplayfield and scroll parallax for almost the entire game, thus obtaining a visual and gaming experience worthy of an AGA machine. The main development will be for AMIGA AGA with 020 to 14Mhz and 2 Mb of ram, so you will need at least one Amiga 1200 or a CD32.

...from time to time, some thoughts need to get out...
Farewell Patrick!
Author: Zeldin - written on 31.12.2014

Farewell Patrick!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!
