GameBase64 Browser v1.0.2 (MaC OS X)

May 12th, 2010 No comments

from the Homepage:

GameBase64 is an ongoing effort to document and catalog every Commodore 64 game ever made. It’s a database of over 20000 games and includes many additional bits of information about each game, such as manuals, covers and maps, along with the original game media.

Previously using GameBase64 on the Mac was cumbersome and frustrating because it was not designed with Mac OS X in mind. GameBase64 Browser is trying to remedy this situtation. It’s a ground-breaking frontend to the GameBase64 database, which allows you to find and play the games you remember from the past, quickly and easily with a user interface you’ll feel comfortable in.

Please note that games, screenshots and extras are not part of GameBase64 Browser. You will have to download them yourself.

News (07-May-2010):

  • Fixes the problem with automatic updating. Oops!
  • Please download manually.

CartographPC V1.1 by Arkanix Labs

April 28th, 2010 No comments

CartographPC is a Windows application created to assist in designing tile-based datamaps. This devtool serves as a companion piece to our C64 native Cartograph devtool.

The original purpose of CartographPC was to enable us to take nice screenshots of our datamaps without having to take four or six screenshots of smaller windows and piece them together.

CartographPC has since grown into a full editor with the benefit of being able to load datamaps created on the C64 directly into memory and edit, save, and move them back to C64 without much hassle.

It works by creating datamaps using tilesets created on C64 with the old, but popular, ultrafont editor. Datamaps can have dimensions of 1 to 255 tiles horizontally and 1 to 127 tiles vertically. CartographPC allows the user to create a datamap as small as 40×25 tiles (one screen) and up to 255×127 tiles.

Currently CartographPC doesn’t support exported datamaps (RLE compressed or converted) from Cartograph but as noted above, standard datamaps are 100% supported.

This application was created as an internal devtool for Arkanix Labs. We’re using Cartograph and CartographPC extensively with our Crimson Twilight Trilogy (tile-based CRPG) and Damned: Out Of Hell (push scroller shooter/jump and run).
