Just a few words to the [DTF] files.

Zip - Name for the files is in example :
Agent Orange (1987)(A & F Software)[h][unreleased][ZX Spectrum][dtf-file].zip

the file inside the zip is named :
AGENTO.DTF

It is NOT POSSIBLE to rename the *.dtf , without destroying it. So, i leave it this way.  ;)

Just want to inform you :
My work on the Enterprise 64 & 128 is finished. (still need  confirmation from staff...)

I will now check old vic20 DAT's , and create new DAT's for the Commodore Vic20. It's my favorite Homecomputer....look at  nickname :D
Hope the "staff" will read my PM's soon , 'cause i've made some suggestions for renaming the DAT's.

However....
started with renaming, repacking and expanding the Vic20 DAT's - [Games] ;-)

just one question :
This is a "Type in - listing" from the magazine Compute!'s Gazette from Juny 1984 (Issue 12 Vol.2, No.6) written by Mark Doyle (needs a Vic20 with 3k memory expansion)
Is this description o.k. ?

3D Tic-Tac-Toe (1984-06)(Compute!'s Gazette)(Mark Doyle)[3k]

or should  i put more infos in it ?  :     [type in][Issue 12 Vol.2, No.6]  etc...   ?

EDIT :

After consultation with TKaos i will use this description for type-in games :
3D Tic-Tac-Toe (1984-06)(Compute!'s Gazette)[type-in][3k]

I guess that's right.
You can't have those two flags together ("(Compute!'s Gazette)(Mark Doyle)"). One way to check how it is being parsed is to use tde tool.

Update :

Hi PandMonium, Cassiel, TKaos & the others,

I've finished the new Dat's for Commodore Vic20  :P

I decided to use this DAT- structure :
- Commodore VIC20 - Applications - [CRT]
- Commodore VIC20 - Applications - [PRG]
- Commodore VIC20 - Applications - [TAP]
- Commodore VIC20 - Compilations - Games
- Commodore VIC20 - Demos - [CRT]
- Commodore VIC20 - Demos - [PRG]
- Commodore VIC20 - Games - [CRT]
- Commodore VIC20 - Games - [PRG]
- Commodore VIC20 - Games - [TAP]
- Commodore VIC20 - Magazines

The multipart-files does not have it's own folders !
That would make the DAT's too confusing
We would than have this structure :
Games - [CRT] - multipart
Games - [CRT] - single
Games - [PRG] - multipart
Games - [PRG] - single
Applications - [CRT] - multipart
Applications - [CRT] - single
Applications - [PRG] - multipart
Applications - [PRG] - single
Demos - [CRT] - multipart
Demos - [CRT] - single
Demos - [PRG] - multipart
Demos - [PRG] - single
Commodore VIC20 - Compilations - Games
Commodore VIC20 - Magazines

again, that's too confusing !
So, multipart - programs have the additional [multipart] at the end of the file-description

Now, some words to the "new" [CRT] = cartridges
- it contains all files ,wich had the "old" extensions a0, b0, 20, 40 , 60 , 80, bin  etc...
- a0, b0 etc... is the loading adress, where the files are loaded in the Vic20.
- but they are all cartridge-files !
- so, i renamed the files to "programname.crt"

examples for single-cartridges :
Atlantis (1983)(Imagic)(NTSC)[A000].zip    /    Atlantis (1983)(Imagic)(NTSC)[A000].crt
Aggressor (1982)(HES)(PAL)[A000].zip      /     Aggressor (1982)(HES)(PAL)[A000].crt

examples for multi-cartridges :
Cannonball Blitz (1982)(Sierra)[2000][A000][multipart].zip   /  Cannonball Blitz (1982)(Sierra)[2000].crt
                                                                               /   Cannonball Blitz (1982)(Sierra)[A000].crt

Apple Panic (1982)(Creative)[6000][A000][multipart].zip   /   Apple Panic (1982)(Creative)[6000].crt
                                                                              /   Apple Panic (1982)(Creative)[A000].crt


the multipart-programs [PRG] are now stored like this :
examples :

zipped file :
Bagdad (1984-11)(Compute!'s Gazette)[type-in][multipart].zip

unzipped files :
- Bagdad (1984-11)(Compute!'s Gazette)[type-in][multipart].prg
- bagdad.f
- bagdad.p2


zipped file :
Alien Vortex (1983)(Temptation)[multipart].zip

unzipped files :
- Alien Vortex (1983)(Temptation)[multipart].prg
- zzalienv


you can see, that the second or third part of a multi-prg-file have no *.prg extension anymore !
This way, the programs will work fine in Vic20 / Emulator VICE !

O.K. hope you understand and like the new structure  8)

I've already add some new programs to the Vic20 TOSEC files, but not all i have are added up to now !

I don't know, when you want to publish/release new TOSEC-DAT's for the world.......

But you can now download the "rewritten" old TOSEC-DAT's on the FTP / upload/Vicman/Commodore Vic20/
(it contains all files of the old SET (ca. 24 MB) , plus about 40 MB of new added files ! )
The new files are also available on ftp !

I'm still adding new files to the SET....think a few hundret will be come, soon  :P

A great source for Vic20 - files is "mayhem's" Vic20-Gamebase, and "tokra's" type-ins from german-computer-magazines.  (both members of Denial)
So, i want to thank both for their great work on collecting Vic20 games  :)

btw.
all DAT's are created with clrmame v4.01 / deprecated format,
and all DAT's are checked with the great tool TOSEC DAT Explorer v20110904

thanks for reading,
Vicman
