Dear reader,
Welcome back to another trip into the legal game
making industry.
In this chapter you will find the normal assortment of
news,informations and advertisments, aswell as
donated documents from the companies themselves.
With each coming issue i will be putting more of
my concentration into legal endeavours, so
expect this chapter in other mags to flow with news
on my own behalf!
All feedback, news, documents from companies and
assosciates are still quite welcome to the usual
address and will be used in future with Vandalism News
and other legal publications i (Jazzcat) am involved
Commodore User   (C) Alternative Software.
Hello C64 world. My name is Heath Kirby-Miller.
I am here to inform you that i am about to launch a new
C-64 paper magazine. It will be called 'Commodore User'
Initially, each issue of C.U. will be 36 black & white A4
pages, with more if the demand is there.
A coverdisk will be provided with each  issue of C.U.
containing a selection of the latest legal software.
C.U. will focus on both the commercial and PD side of
the C64.
The proposed content of C.U. thus far is as follows:
NEWS: The more the bestter, provided that it is
generally good. We are looking for news of
forthcoming C64/128 releases from commercial
software companies, of forthcoming releases from
legal groups, and of major changes to a groups
status or direction. Plus any other news of interest to
the general C64/128 community. All of this can be
included on the votesheet circulating the scene, so be
sure to get hold of one. If you want a votesheet, just
contact me.
Reader's Forum: The place to express your opinions,
thoughts and ask questions.
Classifieds: Do you have something to buy, sell or swap
this is the place for it. Free placement.
Commercial Software Reviews: Any one of the many
commercial software companies out there can send us
their latest titles, for review by the reviewing team.
All we ask is that the games you'd like reviewed be sent
to us complete with any packaging and documentation,
along with details of price and a contact address.
All of this will be used for the review.
Public Domain Software Reviews: Here some of the
many PD titles will be reviewed.
Charts:  Vote for your favourite: Demo groups,
disk magazines, graphicians, Internet sites, musicians,
programmers, software companies, games and demos.
User Groups: Do you run, or are you involved in a user
group? Write and tell us about it. The information we
require, is, ofcourse the name f the group, where and
when it meets, the services it offers it's members and
the cost (if any) of obtaining membership and the
person to contact regarding the club.
All of this information will be used to establish a User
group listing, which will appear in each issue.
Fanzines: Do you produce a fanzine? This is where
you can write and tell us about  it. We'd like to establish
a Fanzines Listing so to be included let us know:
- name of your fanzine
- it's format (tape, disk or paper)
- it's frequency (monthly, bi-monthly etc)
- it's price
- contact address
Tell us what your fanzine covers and if you would like
us to review your fanzine send at least two
consecutive issues to us at the usual address.
The reason we ask two issues is  so that we have a
more balanced view of the fanzine. Often there is a
difficulty when reviewing a fanzine when having seen
only one issue, as it may not really be representative
of the fanzine at it's best (or worst, for that matter).
Can You Help?: If we cannot help you with something, or
feel it would be better addressed to our readers, we
will open it up to them.
Second Hand Product Guide: Hard to find old original
items priced to clear.
C64 Memories: Looking at the earlier years of the C64,
particularly pre-1992. Looking at the major
supporters of the C64 in this time - the big software
companies, the commercially available publications,
the successful (and maybe not so successful)
commercial software titles, hardware items that
revolutionized the C64 world and so forth.
Games Hints And Tips: For new and old games, relying on
your input.
Geos Column: Such a phenomenal system, deserving
coverage. Here we will provide GEOS news, reviews and
Internet Column: As many of us know, and have
experienced, the Internet is a fairly active centre for
C64 users. In this column we hope to include news, site
reviews, and information about the software available
through the Internet.
Hardware Reviews: This would ideally depend on the
support of companies dealing in such, although we will
also look at older items.
Programming Column: We would ideally like someone with
a good background in machine language to provide a
guide for beginners.
If you have a particular area of expertise that you
can write about, yet no allowance has been made for it
contact us as soon as possible.
We are looking for many people to provide information
for the Internet column. If you manage your group's
homepage tell us about it for inclusion in C.U.
If anyone is interested in writting the Programming
column contact us as soon as possible.
C.U. Coverdisk
It is our belief providing a coverdisk with each issue
of C.U. will significantly enhance the quality of the
publication and the enjoyment the reader will gain from
The coverdisk will provide a way of supplying our
readers with a selection of the best new software
available on the C64. The best games, demos, utilities,
music, graphics, game previews and more besides.
We also intend to supply exclusive software titles from
time to time, that is software developed by leading C64
programmers especially for our coverdisk.
The coverdisk will also be means of complementing
information contained in the magazine itself. For
example (this is only a basic list): inclusion of game
previews discussed in the magazine, inclusion of
demonstration type programs (such as source code if
we carried a coding chapter), inclusion of detailed
games hints/solutions and so on.
Further Info
We would like to hear from any commercial software
companies who would like their latest titles reviewed.
Also send us your previews for inclusion on our
Also, if any commercial software company out there
wants to distribute their titles for them here in
Australia, please get in contact with us.
We wil be establishing a homepage on the Internet at a
later date. Look out for it.
Write to us
For anything concerning C.U. please write to us. Send
a suitable sized stamped addressed envelope (or
international reply coupon if writing from overseas)
for free further information.
