The Memotech MTX Series

CP/M Software - MTX User Club Germany

Go straight to the library files

 

The MTX User Club - Germany, was very active in the Memotech world - perhaps more so than the UK User Groups. As well as developing many hardware projects, the Club also put together a library of CP/M software for Memotech disk systems. Courtesy of Peter Kretzschmar, I am making the library available here. The library seems to have been administered by Herbert Herberg, so "thank you" to Herbert for his hard work back then and to Peter for sharing them.

The User Club files were originally stored in library (.LBR) files with the instructions for unpacking these files provided in a text file on the "Club.000" disk. If you need to access the original library files, perhaps for images you have sourced elsewhere, I have extracted, and no doubt mangled, the instructions and posted them here.

However, for the files on this page, Peter has taken the hard work out of it and repackaged the original disk contents into Zip files. Most the disks in the library have a Table of Contents file in the form -source.xxx where "source" is one of the names shown below and "xxx" is the disk number.

CLUB. LBR Public-Domain CLUB.nnn
KLICK. LBR Public-Domain KLICK.nnn
CATALOG.LBR Public-Domain SIG/M.nnn
CP/MUG. LBR Public-Domain CP/M-UG.nnn
PNET. LBR Public-Domain PICO-NET.nnn
UKUG. LBR Public-Domain UK-UG.nnn
BIGBRD. LBR Public-Domain BIG-BOARD.nnn

This page hosts the "CLUBxxx" disks, I have selected disks from the other libraries, these files are on their own pages - available by clicking on the relevant link above.

Obviously, the comments in the individual archives are in German! I think that the Table of Contents files, at least on the earlier disks in the series, were plain text files, written using the special German characters such as ń, ÷ and ‹ with umlauts (  ® ) and the eszett ( Ŗ ). It looks like the text files on Peter's disks have then been saved with NewWord, and so contain various NewWord control characters. So, cleaning up the files into something that Google Translate could make a reasonable attempt at converting into English was not straightforward.

My proficiency is German extends to being able to order a couple of beers (at least I have the important stuff covered !), so there will be lots of errors in the English text you find here, but at least it should give you a flavour for what is on the disks and whether you want to try out the software. If you do speak German and you can help out with any obviously incorrect or missed translations, please let me know. If you want to read about the convoluted process that I followed to get the files to this stage, you can find it on this page. I did get a bit better as I went on - from about Club.050, they do improve (slightly).

To transfer the files to my FDX/SDX, I use the HxC Floppy Disk Drive Emulator, and cpmtools to copy the files from the library to disk images as described here.

 Here are disks from the MTX User Club (Germany) library that I received from Peter:-

As with other PD resources, I would imagine that the library contains items of "variable" quality, from great to the not so! If you find anything particularly useful, or equally, NOT, please let me know so that I can update the listing for the benefit of others.
