Scene news: Reset magazine issue #4 released
25.08.2014
Written by Poison

Reset is a free “C64 only” PDF magazine with a focus on gaming.

On a whopping number of 78 pages you can find, for example, up-to-date test for…

  • Commando Arcade from the Group Nostalgia – a surprise hit that should be part of any C64 game collection!
  • Guns & Ghosts from the creative duo of Georg “Endurion” Rottensteiner and Trevor “Smila” Storey, which you can obtain at Psytronik or RGCD and which we have already warmly recommended in a previous Protovision newsletter.
  • Bellringer III from Geir Straume, which has an 80′s charm and a gameplay in the tradition of hunchback.

As well, our 4 Player compilation (that has been sold out in the meantime) was tested extensively on the latest Amiga User Group (#CommodoreClub) meeting in Melbourne.
Sold out? Yes. But do not worry. You can still get the games individually as downloads (Bomb Mania, Hockey Mania, Team Patrol) or even as limited edition (Tanks 3000) from our shop.

Scene news: Funkpaint 0.42a released
24.03.2014
Written by Trixter

The Hungarian group Singular has released a new version of FunkPaint. The tool offered a large number of functionalities in the past already, including support for three mouse buttons and new – support for the scrollwheel – if used with the Micromys-adapter. But the tool also supports the Amiga mouse, e.g. plugged into the 4 player interface at port three. It uses all the RAM extensions you could think of (REU, RR-RAM, Superram, GeoRam, IDE64/swap files).

Scene News: New PTV Mention
14.03.2014
Written by Trixter

The final Datastorm party (February/Gothenburg-Sweden) sparked the last time a veritable explosion of high-quality demos, images, and music for the C64.

Fairlight, Offence and Prosonix. Softwareproductions in the merge of these legendary groups represent the finest demo quality and achieve regularity top rankings on various demoparties – so is also their latest demo “We Are All Connected“. This masterpiece scored the first place and as a matter of course once again Protovision was (elaborately staged) greeted.

Congratulations to the won C64 demo competition, we thank and salute hereby back and we love you!

In any case, you have to have see and hear the other productions of this fantastic party – this is of course done best on a real C64! :-)

chip.de’s german article “Auf dem Index: Die frühen Pixel-Schlachten” (“Indexed Games: The Early Pixel Battles”) mentions Protovision – albeit not in the context of the article’s main focus (violent games), but as a source for new and fresh C64 games.

Scene News: Metal Dust Video-Review
17.11.2013
Written by Trixter

KONEY released a teeny-tiny Metal Dust review on youtube. Koney shows that it is well possible to play Metal Dust via emulator, with hand-made joystick (!) and CRT TV! Sadly, you cannot watch this video in Germany as it is GEMA-locked, but you can watch it if you’re outside of Germany.
