Leif Bloomquist released his game Vortex 2 for the testing phase. This game can use the internet to play against another person. In the game you can fly with your ship and shoot at the enemy, but nothing will happen at this stage in the development of the game. The game is auto-updating. You need an RR-Net or compatible cartridge (64NIC+, FB-Net, etc) for your C64 or you can use the VICE emulator. For more informations visit his blog, if you want to give feedback use the Retrohackers forum.

Another new feature is that the card has a built in MAC-address that guaranteed the same IP address of the RR-Net MK3 in the network if the device is be allocated by a DHCP server from a router.

The Hungarian group Singular has released a new version of FunkPaint. The tool offered a large number of functionalities in the past already, including support for three mouse buttons and new – support for the scrollwheel – if used with the Micromys-adapter. But the tool also supports the Amiga mouse, e.g. plugged into the 4 player interface at port three. It uses all the RAM extensions you could think of (REU, RR-RAM, Superram, GeoRam, IDE64/swap files).
