  Disk & Tape Transfer Service
21 Aug 00

Do you have some old C64 disks/tapes lying in your basement including some classic games you haven't found on the web yet? If you would like to play these games from your childhood again, we can help you to include them in the forthcoming Gamebase Collection!

So if you have no equipment or simply don't have the time to get them back to life we can do this for you. You send us your stuff and we transfer it to the PC for you. Finally you'll get back a CD with all images included playable with an emulator. Check out our Transfer Service here!

  New Database for gamebase64 v1.3b!
08 Aug 00

Andreas Eibach has compiled his own database for use with v1.3b of gamebase64. The original database that came with gamebase64 only supported up to volume 300 of the Blast Collection and the information in it was poorly assimilated. Andreas' database supports up to volume 340 and the data it contains is far more accurate than before. There is also over 470 new screenshots!

You can check exactly what's new in his database here, and you can get the database and screenshots from the download page.

  Wanted: Gamebase64 Artwork!
07 Aug 00

James unfortunately has very little artistic talent (remember the splash screen in v1.3b? - hahahaah!!) and is humbly asking for somebody to design a new splash screen and icon for v2.0 of gamebase64! Any artwork we receive will be considered, the best submissions will be picked for v2.0 and the artist will be fully credited. If you're interested, the icon needs to be in both 16x16 and 32x32 versions and the splash screen no larger than 400x250 pixels (or thereabouts). Please mail your masterpieces to!

  Project Status
02 Aug 00

Michael is now back from his travels in Ireland and is currently rummaging through all the new found games the team has sent him. Rio Baan has supplied us with many of these new games but they still have to be assimilated into the collection. A nice amount of unchecked games have been checked this month also, bringing the release date that little bit closer! :-)

To date, the project status is as follows (but we have many more games waiting to be added)...

Entries in database: 10500 (+70)
With Game-File: 10414 (+60)
Unchecked: 3868 (-629)
Missing: 76
Not 100% working: 86

Updated Missing and Non-100% lists will be uploaded soon.
