ABBUC Software Contest - the unpublished software


Recommended Posts

Hello Atarians,


I noticed that some of ABBUC Software Contest entries are still unavailable to download. There are many of them put in public domain, but I can't find any downloads. Do you know any of them?


Here is a list of particular entries which I am interested in:


ABBUC 2003


- Das Spiel "The Alien Encyclopedia" von WASEO
- Das Würfelspiel von Russ Gilbert
- Der Grafikbetrachter "TipView" aus Polen
Atari Road Map
Hit the mole
Franz. Wörter 2
Waseo Inhalts Kreator
SIO Hi-Patches
Cavern Run
Whiskey Mon
Screen Test
If any of the authors come by here, it would be even better. Thanks to all for the help!

the software contest 2003 even had NEO-Tracker by EPI, but we did not get it working on our real Ataris, so it had been disqualified. Afaik, the version in 2003 was Neo-Tracker 1.4, the newest version nowadays is 1.8 and there should also be a NEO-Player which works with 64k computers. Alas, EPI`s old homepage is gone (http://epi.atari8.info/), so it is not so easy to find these programs any longer. EPI was/is also active at Github, but there you mostly get only the sources (or the download of the XEX/EXE files is really difficult to find).


1) Regarding Tipview, the released version for ASC-2003 was 0.9, the newest version nowadays is 1.1:


With this link you can download the Tip-Converter, all its sources and Tipview 1.1 (it is in the subdir TipConv2 under the name tv.xex).


2) Regarding NEO-Tracker, Epi calls it ENO nowadays and here is a download link for some ENO-sources:


Alas, it does not contain any executable files (not even an older Neo-Tracker version).


Attached from my collection you will find Tipview 1.1 and NEO-Tracker 1.6 + 1.8 (the newest version 1.8 works good with simple-stereo by Candle and its built-in Covox at $D280, while the older version 1.6 works good with most other stereo-upgrades; meaning: my simple stereo upgrade with Covox by Candle does not work with version 1.6, while my simple-stereo upgrade without Covox by Lotharek does not work with version 1.8 )...


If anyone has the executable version (XEX/COM/EXE) of ENO or the NEO-player (which should also work on 64k machines), please let me know and/or upload it here...


3) Regarding Cavernrun, there are two versions a) the older one from 1992 (released in KE-Soft`s ZONG magazine), it can be found here: http://www.atarionline.pl/v01/index.php?ct=katalog&sub=C&tg=Cavernrun#Cavernrun

and there is b) the newer ASC-2006 version which can be found here: http://www.atarionline.pl/v01/index.php?ct=katalog&sub=C&tg=Cavernrunner#Cavernrunner


4) Russ Gilberts Wuerfelspiel (= german for dice-game) is named Skunk and can be found here:



Greetings, Andreas Koch.
