c64studio_thumb Probably the Commodore computers are the most blessed with excellent modern development tools, like C64 Studio, which just got a new update.

If you didn’t hear about it, we reproduce here all the information you need to know about it.

C64 Studio is a .NET based IDE (Windows only) that supports project based C64 assembly (ACME syntax) or Basic V2. In connection with Vice the IDE allows you to debug through your code and watch variables/memory locations, registers and memory.

C64 Studio allows you to compile to raw binary, .prg, .t64, .d64 or cartridge format (.bin and .crt for 8k, 16k, MagicDesk). Additionally to this C64 Studio comes with a charset, sprite and media editor (tape and disk).

The application can be downloaded for free from CSDb or the developer website, below.

Cygnis2You are in the Cygnis system, and COMMAND has missions for you.You land on each planet and receive your mission. Danger and excitement lie in the solutions to the quests on these strange far away planets.

There are four text adventures, each has it’s own objective. You move and act in this world by typing one, two word combinations. N or north will move you north if  it’s possible, and works for all the directions. I for Inventory, T for Time will work for some games. Look, Use, Go, Get are good common verbs. Many of the objects (nouns) you can interact with are easily spotted. Because they are all under 4K they will not respond to every word combination. If you press L at the beginning of one planet you will skip to the next.

cbmsoftc64warez.com has been moved to http://old.c64warez.com. The old site is no longer going to be updated. The replacement site is up and running at the usual address (http://www.c64warez.com). All the old files will be moved over as time permits and of course new stuff will be added regularly. The main reason for the move is the need for a better way to maintain thousands of files and screenshots. The secondary reason is to have an infrastructure that provides facilities for adding things like news, articles, voting booths, etc …. not that any of that is coming soon, but the option is nice to have.

Now for what might seem like bad news to some. The site now requires registration to download files. Browsing the files and checking out all the details is completely open and the registration is completely automated so you can get to downloading right away. After your initial login you can just have the site remember you and the inconvenience will be over with.

Mhoney (the owner) will continue to tweak the new system and as always he is open to suggestions and comments.

reddit_cia You may have been wondering what the hell is going on with Commodore is Awesome lately, so we decided that its about time we let you know, now that we have nearly finished.

First up, we have moved servers. Commodore is Awesome can now be officially found at http://commodore.ninja, pretty cool eh? We think it fit’s the bill quite well, as we are always working silently in the background like Ninjas, fixing and updating the website & adding your daily Commodore news fix :)

A few other things have changed which we will list below.

  • The Commodore is Awesome Forum is undergoing some changes so it can cater for Vintage is the New Old as a forum too. One big Retro Forum in the making, we will announce when it’s complete and ready.
  • The old rss news feed is now obsolete and this is our new one >> http://vitno.net/category/commodore/feed/ please update to continue to receive daily Commodore News!
  • We now have new Facebook Groups for Commodore is Awesome and Vintage is the New Old, please feel free to join the fun, Here & Here.
  • Aside from the above we have fixed a lot of other stuff since the move, mostly bugs in the CiA matrix you may or may not even notice. There might still be the odd thing that may look out of place or maybe a broken link. Please contact us and let us know asap and we will get it fixed as soon as we can :)
  • We are always looking for talented people with game review writing experience or maybe you can contribute something else interesting? If you think you got what it takes, contact us with some info about yourself and what you would like to contribute.

rgcd-trance Back in 2012, RGCD announced Trance Sector Ultimate, and they said that it would coming out ‘soon’. Fast forwarding three years, the game is finally out. The (very) long wait was worth it, as states the people from RGCD:
“To celebrate the completion of the project, we decided to launch TRANCE SECTOR ULTIMATE at Genesis Project’s 2015 Gubbdata demoparty, free for download, but also available to buy as a limited edition cartridge (50 individually numbered copies).”
The game comes presented in a modified plastic Universal Game Case complete with custom made foam insert, a 12-page printed manual, a pair of RGCD/TSU vinyl stickers and a 170g matt-coated A3 poster. The cost of this amazing package is £33 plus shipping.
