TOSEC release! (2020-10-31)

The TOSEC team are back again with a super-scary new release for Halloween! (Well, what's mostly scary about it is the amount of fixes duncantwain has made to the Commodore dats).

Maddog was insane enough to add them up and came up with the number 4-5-7-3-4, but nobody bothered to double check that so we can't guarantee that they are not any other massive number. Maddog has not done addition since leaving elementary school sometime in the previous century and he couldn't use his paws to help him due to the big numbers of files involved.

 A little shorter release this time due to the smaller gap between releases, but here are still plenty of new additions and changes. Celebrating his 10th anniversary with TOSEC in style is duncantwain, who has this time put a mammoth effort into clearing up and fixing the Commodore C64 dats. We can't even imagine what he will be up to in the coming 10 years! mictlantecuhtle, meanwhile has continued his efforts to catalog the neverending piles of Apple II software, with a few other obscure systems in the mix as usual. These include a complete overhaul of the EACA Colour Genie dat, which presumably will make 1-2 persons in Germany very happy since this system was mostly popular there and nobody else has ever heard about it.

 This release also features some significant additions to the Nintendo Game Boy and SNES systems from Newpain. These systems have languished due to the fact that the TOSEC team has a notable Sega bias, so it's good to see someone willing to dedicate the time and effort to the less good side of the console wars. We hope to see more work on them in the near future! Maddog wanted to drop Nintendo dats altogether instead, but we beat some sense into him using a Blue Spiny Shell and a Racoon Tail. He relented and went away subdued, only to come back with some updated TOSEC ISO dats for 3DO, Gamecube and Saturn.

 Finally, we have to thank all those who have contributed notes, updates or corrections on the forums. This is a big effort and there will always be mistakes and errors. The more feedback we get the better the dats will be!

Please keep sending them in! Have a safe and socially distanced Halloween and we'll see you all again very soon!
