Well, it's been some time since this page was updated. More than 8 months! But I'm not going to start this news entry with another "sorry it's late" apology. Instead lets get on with the update :)

Since the last news entry on the 1st of January there have been 16 UnExoticA updates. I've been lazy, XtC hasn't. He would have done even more, but he managed to break his Amiga. You can view the last 10 updates on the UnExotica Updates page. the collection now contains 7439 files packed into 1459 archives. That's full rips for 1406 Games. We are now adding any CD audio from Amiga games which we have permission for, so the archive has grown in size quite considerably.

The High Voltage SID Collection was also updated (Twice!). The latest updates bring it to version 5.7. The collection now contains 27,087 C64 tunes. ExoticA's mirror of this collection offers the music individually via a simple to use HTML Interface or you can download the entire collection in one large GZIP'd TAR Archive - HVSC.tar.gz. Also, we now offer the collection as an all-in-one ZIP file - HVSC_5.7-all-of-them.zip and an all-in-one RAR file - HVSC_5.7-all-of-them.rar. To see whats new since the last reported update please check out the the e-mail announcement texts - update38.txt and update39.txt. For more in depth changes, you can refer to the update logs in the DOCUMENTS/ Directory.

Scenery 64 saw an update back at the end of January this year. Check out the Scenery 64 page for details.
