BUDS started with Overall and Maduplec as members, but after the first demo "Wraxirmer 5", Overall stopped his activities. Maduplec then coded the rest of the demos with graphics from friends and exclusive sound-tracks supplied by the Vibrants. However, in the last couple of demos, all graphics and music was made by Maduplec.
NATO and BUDS stopped producing demos when Maduplec and the other remaining danish members joined Crest in 1992 when NATO was dissolved.

Files named gg_xx(n) are NTSC versions. From issue #09 forth the Guides autodetect NTSC and fix themselves. We currently only have the NTSC version of GG #06.

C2N232/
C2N232 is a Commodore C2N cassette drive (datassette) emulator with an RS-232 interface. It was designed by Marko Mäkelä (http://www.funet.fi/~msmakela/).
The device allows data transfers between all 8-bit Commodore computers that are equipped with a cassette interface (PET series, VIC-20, C64, C128, 264 series, PET-II series) and any computer that has a 38400 bps RS-232 interface. Supported protocols include pulse width modulation (normal cassette LOAD/SAVE/OPEN, and any tape speeders that use at most 3 different pulse widths), and a custom protocol whose transfer speed exceeds 38400 bps already on a 1 MHz Commodore.
The software is work in progress. The preferred methods of using the C2N232 are c2nload and cbmlink, the replacement of prlink.

C2N232 is a Commodore C2N cassette drive (datassette) emulator with an RS-232 interface. It was designed by Marko Mäkelä (http://www.funet.fi/~msmakela/).
The hardware design (made with the Eagle layout editor by CadSoft) is based on two integrated circuits: an Atmel AT90S2313 microcontroller and a Maxim MAX232 line driver.

The Commodore 600 series was known as the B128 in the United States, and the machine that was known there as the B256, was called the 700 series in Europe. These machines are also known as "CBM II Low Profile" and "CBM II High Profile", respectively.
The 600 and the 700 series are almost identical, but 700 series machines have a built-in monitor, a separate keyboard, and a different character generator ROM. The 610/710 has 128kB RAM, the 620/720 has 256kB RAM, and the 630/730 has 256kB RAM and a co-processor card (Z80 and 8088 were planned, but it is not sure if these cards actually existed).
The 500 series uses a 6567/6569 VIC-II video chip instead of the 6845 CRTC. It also runs at around 1 MHz instead of the 2 MHz of other Model B computers.

Firmware for Commodore disk drives.
According to William Levak, Commodore used six different native disk formats:
2040/3040 - This is slightly different from later formats: tracks 18 - 24 have 20 sectors instead of 19.
2031/4040/1540/1541/1551/1570 - single sided, single density, 48tpi
1571 - A double sided version.
8050 - single sided, 96tpi
1001/8250 - double sided, 96tpi
1581, 3½" DD with MFM
While we're on the subject, Commodore's single density drives are actually double density, and the double density drives are actually quad density. Quad density disks have the same capacity of high density disks, but the magnetic film is compatible with double density disks.

Serial bus based Commodore disk drives
1541/
This directory contains ROMs of 1540, 1541, 1541C and 1541-II drives.
The ROM checksums are valid. If you add the byte values together (adc data:adc #0), the sum of the $c000-$dfff ROM will be $c0, and the $e000-$ffff ROM will add up to $e0. This applies also to the halves of the 1541-II ROM.

The Commodore D9060 and D9090 can use the same firmware. The difference between these units is that the jumper J14 on the DOS board is open in the D9060, and closed in the D9090 to select a 4-head vs. 6-head drive. The jumper J13 seems to be unused.
According to Wolfgang Günther, the EPROM type may be 2564 or 2764, depending on the board version ("Assy No. 300012-001, Rev.B" or "Assy No. 300012-002, Rev.A"). This is the case of 300516/300517 rev.C.

GeoThek/
This is a collection of German GEOS files (GeoThek library). The collection is provided here "as is", mainly for two reasons. First, the disks are organized with some kind of internal logic (files that belong together are on the same diskette), and second, even though many of these files are available in the main archive (even as newer versions), some files may be adapted for German needs and might not work in English GEOS versions properly.
Merging this collection with our GEOS archive would be possible but very time-consuming, since there are no descriptions for individual files (other than the info block), and it would be difficult to decide which files belong together.

This directory contains pictures of a Commodore C65 prototype. The project was canned, but the prototypes were sold in Autumn 1993 when Commodore liquidated one of its warehouses. The pictures are scanned from the German 64'er magazine, issue 3/94. Read the article and also the interview of a chief engineer Fred Bowen in issue 4/94 to get more information.
Note that these pictures have poor quality, since they were scanned from the magazine.

These stuffs are packed all with LHA 2.12 (under DOS), with -o switch (compatible mode). So they may be depackable on other systems, too. The format of files is the usual .d64 (...zipcode does'nt exist on Plus/4, moreover, depacking is screamly slow on Commodores...) disk-image which is handled by C64S and much PC-1541 transferring stuffs. You can especially use Trans64 to put these images back to an 1541-format disk (1551 uses the same format, too). There should be ways on other systems but I still don't work on them so...

DELTA SYSTEM PLUS/4 SECTION http://www.inf.bme.hu/~charles/plus4.html
Short history
The Plus/4 section of Delta System was organized on the Autumn of 1990 with three members: UPC, Charles and Toma. There were no serious work of ours 'till the Summer of 1991, but after that more & more programs have been released (see below). Later two new members have joined our section, namely: St.GLS and RVN (later Dragon) - a gfxman. In the Winter of 1992 - after releasing our great megademo - the section has been dissolved, though St.GLS has worked a few more months on. Most of our works have been explored by the majority just posthumous.
If you're interested in any of these stuffs, just E-mail charles@inf.bme.hu.
Future prospects: Since every member has sold its machine and moved to PC, and the whole Plus/4 life is about to die, this section won't be reorganized ever.

The plus/4 game archive.
Most of the archive has now been disabled, due to the uncertain copyright status of many of the files. Many of the programs contain no copyright notice, let alone any license terms or the name of the author.
Since we do not have the resources to trace down the authors, we have removed such files from the collection.
If you would like to have a title re-listed, please supply us with a permission notice of the current copyright holder. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

This is from a copy of the manual. The original had a number of double fold-out sheets that had no apparent need for this format, so I made them two separate pages when I coppied them.

This manual contained many triple width fold out pages. Most had a wide enough margin so that they could be scanned as a double width page. Those that could not are designated with a "l" for left and "r" for right parts of the page. All but page 13 could be split so that no information was cut in two by the split.
