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.

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).

Firmware for Commodore disk drives.
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, 3˝" 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.

This directory contains ROMs of 1540, 1541, 1541C and 1541-II drives.
The ROM checksums were 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.

GeoThek/
A German collection of GEOS files.
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.

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.

There are several versions of the Commodore 1541 disk drive. Here are three scanned schematic diagrams of the 1541, and a reverse engineered diagram of the 1541-II drive.
1571/
The 1570/1571 disk drive
Here is the schematic diagram of the Commodore 1571 floppy disk drive. The schematic also applies to the built-in 1571 in the Commodore 128D to some extent, but not to the 1571CR, which is integrated on the motherboard of the Commodore 128DCR. You can find those diagrams among the Commodore 128 schematics.
old/
Old drives (IEEE-488 bus)
Here are schematic diagrams of old Commodore disk drives (with IEEE-488 interface)
2031/
The 2031 disk drive (service manual)
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. I have done the same thing here but have numbered the pages "l"(left) and "r"(right) to preserve the original pagination.
4040/
The 2040/3040/4040 disk drive

Unless otherwise stated, all machine language games in this directory require at least 8 kilobytes of expansion memory.
a000/
Games that require RAM at $a000-$bfff (in the game cartridge area).
The games in this directory have been copied from ROM cartridges at BLK5 ($a000). You will need RAM at $a000-$bfff to use them.
multipart.8k/
Games that get loaded from multiple files and require at least 8kB memory expansion.
Here are some multi-part VIC-20 games. All of them consist of a loader and the actual program, which begins with "zz". All programs require at least 8 kilobytes of memory expansion. The loaders require disk device #8, unless otherwise specified.
multipart.unexpanded/
Games that get loaded from multiple files and work on the unexpanded VIC-20.
Here are some multi-part VIC-20 games. All of them consist of a loader and the actual program, which begins with "zz". All programs work without any memory expansion. The loaders require disk device #8, unless otherwise specified.
