TOSEC Release! (2018-04-01)
« on: April 01, 2018 - 11:35:50 »

*************************************************
It is with great sadness that we present you with the last ever TOSEC update.
It is true, after all these years we have decided that we can no longer do this
and we are going home. We have families and we are getting old, so better to
dedicate our time to them. We hope you have enjoyed the ride.
We would also like to wish happy Easter to those of you who celebrate today.

We tried to do our best for this last-ever update and you can see the results below.
 * Commodore Amiga updates by Crashdisk and mai
 * Tons of Commodore C64 news by Duncan Twain
 * ladyeklipse continues her saga with some The Sinclair ZX Spectrum love.
 * Commodore Amiga CD/CD32/CDTV/VIC/C128 updates by tomse
 * mictlantecuhtle continues his saga looking for less known systems. This
 time we see the addition of: ACT Apricot PC-Xi, AEG Olympia Olytext 20, APF
 M-1000, Aquaplus P-ECE, Bondwell 14, Commodore BX256-80HP, Dragon Data Dragon
 Alpha, Dragon Data Dragon Beta, Fujitsu FM77-AV, Luxor ABC 1600, Luxor ABC 806,
 Matra Hachette Alice 90, NEC Advanced Personal Computer, NorthStar Advantage,
 Otrona Attache, Patisonic Aleste 520EX, Rockwell AIM65, Telcon Zorba, VEB
 Mikroelektronik Erfurt Chess-Master Diamond and Yamaha Copera.
 * tomse contributed with Commodore C128 and VIC20 updates in the main branch
 but also with new work in Amiga CD/CD32/CDTV
 * As should be expected by now, Maddog added several new Dreamcast GDIs.
 They include several rare and expensive discs, which are now fully verified
 for your enjoyment.
 But quite unexpectedly, TOSEC ISO has also seen the addition of over 200 images
 for the wonderful NEC PC Engine CD/TurboGrafx CD by a datter wishing to remain anonymous. This is a system that has
 many quality titles and deserves attention. Until now, it hadn't seen much in
 TOSEC. We started rectifying this oversight and expect to add even more stuff
 in the future (this includes adding HuCards to the MAIN branch). All names and
 dates have been carefully cross-checked using actual software covers so be sure
 that even if something feels wrongly named or goes against information seen on
 other sites on the Web, it is actually correct in our dats.
*******************************************************************************

All folders and contents should be self-explanatory. All necessary
CUEs are also included. There are also some scripts included to
assist in creating TOSEC folders, and some 'move' scripts for those
of you using RomVault. As usual, be careful with long pathnames in
some OSes. Best advice is to use your folders as close as possible
to the root of the drive.

For all the latest work-in-progress news, as well as expanded details
on all upcoming changes and additions, keep up to date by visiting

The retro will wait and it doesn't matter. Unlike us, it improves with time  :-[

Don't worry, the TOSECDev site will remain online for at least 1 or 2 more years. After that, Web Archive will take over. Then nothing will be lost

It's not about loss. We also keep these.
It's about progress.
There is so much more to include.


Why doesn't this turn into an "open source" philosophy project and just find new team leaders?

It's not a leader problem. The problem is deeper, a general weariness. Maybe some will work independently...

It is a pitty, I considered TOSEC the mother of all.
The one that could encompass even "opposing" collections in the end (as the general idea is "include all alternatives").


I really hope this turns out to something good in the end.
After all many of the contributors have work in progress.

too obvious
just not to be bad, i just proclaim to not to use search anymore for others than myself. Its easy. If you got almost fullsets, your missings are often posted together in one.
