Just watched this
not sure if this is of any interest here ?
Thats pretty awesome, but sadly my case already has a little hole cut in it for switching eproms. I do love how he uses the LED to indicate which rom is selected. Pretty awesome I say.
I do like it - but as the less experienced C64 user - do I really need more than JiffyDOS ROM and the normal C64 ROM? Seems like a lot of effort compared to get an extra few ROMS rather than just buying the pre-made switchless one.
Probably not, but Im not the right person to say. I didnt even know there was so many
I just thought it was really clever
Ooh. a new upgrade!.. Squee!!!!. Wunnerful. I'll have to pull it down. Love the idea of REU preloads.
How good are updates!
I am freaking mc-lovin all these updates, and how about all those new game releases.. lol.. makes me wonder WTF we need 5 ghz to use a freakin web browser.. might have a bang around on mine when i get home...
edit: I've been playing through "Portal" by Activision over the last 2 days while on layover in Bologna. Freaking amazing..
Thinking of picking up a Georam unit, anyone have any experience with those?
I miss these;
New game out - Alpharay for C16+
Premium box sets available. Alternatively, pay what you want for the download version:
Looks like R-Type arcade?
Certainly does. Some clear inspiration there.
Happy to see new C16/C64 development going on. There's a few in the works currently, which is great.
The 1541 UII+ REU is better. Better compatibility with software outside of GEOS, more configuration options and 16MB.
very bad you tube vid of a 35 yr old easter egg.
warning - involves vinyl recording of a christian rock band, and quotes from Einstein and Jesus
My goodness YouTubers need to know how to get to the point (or set jump markers in comments). But otherwise, pretty fascinating.
My favourite recent audio-encoded-data thing recently was the Nintendo DS version of Bangai-O that enabled custom levels to be shared by audio encoding. Quite a few videos up on YouTube where you can load a level by holding your Nintendo DS up to your speaker from your PC or phone to decode the audio!
How anyone would have successfully transferred that from LP to cassette in the day at a recording level that would reliably work on a C64 is anyone's guess. Pretty cool though, even if it is a little God loving.
from a time when easter eggs were few and far between. no loot boxes here.
The effort to reward ratio is pretty far off on this one...
I totally agree, but the Georam stuff is fairly cheap. Does anything other than georam commonly use RAM expansion on the C64?
The 1541II+ is pretty awesome though. I wish I had gone for that directly instead of a SD2IEC drive first.
Anyone tempted to build a "new" C64 with the ultimate 64 motherboard and a c64fullsize ? Looks like No one is selling the C64 cases seperately anymore..
once upon a time, the 'hunt' was why we participated in the thrill of being in the game.
to find more eggs than your sibling was the best reward, not the eggs
