haha, should start an old codgers club
Spot of sprite making... Lol it's been a while...
Lol too funny.. I remember using this sprite for a catalog program I made when I still had hair..lol
I gotta add too that it was very weird drawing sprites with the Surface(tm) pen, so easy and feels so much better than doing it with a joystick or mouse.. amazing sprite editor that too. And I know that last pic looks as it does, but it was way more impressive than that as it moved across the screen..lol
So just to finish off, I bought the lumiafix128 and a case for my wifimodem and a blank cart for the final cart3.
And finally found a replacement 1571 drive... Just happened to come with this..
NTSC version. Wonder if the PSU will be aus compat or 120v only?
Had a very brief discussion with John Morris of Applesauce fame (applesaucefdc.com) this morning in regard to whether the hardware could handle C64 disks.
Apparently the hardware can handle it, and Its likely that some time early next year the software will support read and write of C64 disk images!
Could that be something Greaseweazle can handle? From what I understand it can read/write at the flux level but most of the talk I've seen has been copying Amiga disks (a lot of UK folks on the Facebook page).
Time permitting I plan on doing one up today with a STM32 "Blue Pill" I sourced earlier in the week and I do actually have one C64 disk in my collection just not sure if I'll be able to do anything with it.
Greaseweazle - cool! Must look into it.
That would be a cheap solution for sure. Whatever it takes to preserve these titles - whether it's Greaseweazle, Applesauce or another solution
I think it was you who brought this to my attention the other day. I'm definitely keen to try this out with some troublesome disks I have.
It only clicked for me the other day that this is the FlashFloppy author. Very nice of him to offer solutions at both ends of the magnetic media problem.
New C64 PSU from Finnland showed up at my Sydney address, as did the Datel Turbo2 rom and install kit for my original breadbin. Though that will have to wait as i want to get my 128 fixed first.
How much was the PSU if you don't mind me asking? My original C64 PSU worries the shit out of me...
I stupidly ordered the one with dual power outputs for the 1541 MK2 that I don't have..lol..
But the single output ones are around 70 bucks plus shipping. You can get cheaper ones, but these are built pretty solidly. I also ordered one for my 128 slab model, though that hadn't arrived yet. I'll take
Some pics tomorrow.. pretty nice unit. Not sure what shipping was for the ç64 one, but the 128 one was 90 bucks inc shipping.. let me see if I can get a pic... Edit.. attached.
There you go
Which also reminds me, what is the go with the psu's in the disk drives? Are they also going nuclear? Is there a fix it kit for those? I have several 1541's that I don't really want to get caught on fire .
Wow, just blew me away..this looks great.. EOB on C64.
Why are you reading my mind? I was thinking for the last couple of days about starting another eob run. Still better on pc, even ega mode.
not bad at all.
A c128 version would be cool with better meshes and increased speed.
Get a c64 saver and remove all the worry about the stock psu destroying your unit
My nunchuk64 should arrive any day now :>
Should be a great controller solution
Links please bud, what are they worth?
It's been a while since I bought mine it was quite cheap tho I think around 35
let me know how the nunchuk64 goes I am interested in something like this.
