In Topic: Sell me on some good c64 games

Fri Mar 29, 2019 10:17 AM

Some of the early arcade ports like Mario Bros and PopEye are very good. Qbert and Frogger were also excellent on the C64.

 

This s a good starting place for you:

In Topic: Was MS-DOS (and similar) an entry barrier to computing?

Mon Mar 18, 2019 10:41 AM

Ironically, in the early days DOS was simple but price was the barrier. By the time PC prices came down enough for home users, DOS had grown very complex and there was a usability barrier.

 

DOS was incredibly simple until the 286 came along and suddenly memory management became a thing.

 

There was hardly anything for the home user to configure, didn't really need to fiddle with config.sys or AUTOEXEC.BAT (in fact I believe these weren't even in the early versions of DOS).

 

TSRs and drivers didn't really become necessary until the second half of the 80s.

 

Early disk games auto-booted or required very simple commands to start.

What continent are you on? I normally dont part with CIAs but I will sell you one at a low price since youve stuck with this C64 instead of recycling it.
