Allsorts of interesting finds
« on: 2017.July.08. 17:03:55 »
Sometimes I'll put here some interesting (IMHO) materials.

Ok.

Let's start from Red Moon from Level 9 Computing.
From many sources we can understand: game for EP must exists.

https://archive.org/stream/home-computing-weekly-132/Home_Computing_Weekly_132#page/n29/mode/2up/search/enterprise

But in software adverts of L9 you can see under games "The Worm in Paradise" and "Red Moon" little string "(Not Enterprise/Memotech)"

http://mocagh.org/rainbird/level9-catalog8.pdf
All L9 catalogs you can see here: http://mocagh.org/loadpage.php?getgame=header-rainbird


BTW, I found on that site booklet for "Colossal Adventure": http://mocagh.org/rainbird/colossaladventerprise-manual.pdf
(I doesn't saw it earlier)


And some "X-Ray" stuff...

Take Batman (hungary) kasette: http://ep128.hu/Album/Ep_Kazetta/Kazetta/Batman_hun.jpg
and make some gamma/contrast/brightness adjustments:
18187-0


"El diales es Divertido"? Some Spain-language educational software?

I think, retailers in Hungary just take cassette with not very popular soft and record on them more interesting and valuable stuff.
Similar cassettes:

I think "English is fun", but oriented to the Spanish market. Probably a stock recovered when Proeinsa(the Spanish dealer) returned all to the UK.

Once in a time Spain was a promising market to sell Enterprise programs, and somebody must have thought that printing them in Spanish was a good idea.

You already found the same text under a Batman tape sticker long ago on 2006....

But the English fun is a Hungarian version.
Then a "El Inglés es divertido" is a Spanish version, but I never see it.

Yes, I think it was originally Spanish-English and then eventually translated to Hungarian-English, like many other programs. A pity it was not preserved.

The existence of those re-utilised cassettes is almost a proof of it.

PRIVAT-85 and PRIVAT-86 german accounting software adverts:
Not quite. Actually a program to do your yearly income tax declaration.

The others are adverts for software to exercise foreign language vocabulary.
