  1. on a side note. congrats on finding some SMS controllers! They seem to be quite rare now and no one seems to make aftermarket controllers because the aftermarket megadrive controllers work fine on an SMS.
  2. Damn, that would have been hard to do! I can't imagine how I would go getting rid of all or most of my systems (all the rest are consoles), but I have decided lately that if I were to keep one system, it would be the C64 for much the same reasons. I haven't touched ANY of my systems lately due to other expensive distractions, but hopefully soon
  3. Looks good but I am finding that 'internet' shirts really don't hold up like old fashioned shirts do nowadays. For instance, other than the black fabric having faded somewhat, my 20 year old Alice In Chains T-shirt looks newer than most of my shirts that are less than a year old! That's the pro and con of the modern guys. It's not traditional silk screen, but but because of that you can get any design printed with just a vector image or what have you...
  4. That looks nice. Can you make a C64 version and put it on a cart for me? I think twenty bucks should compensate you for your time
  5. I would say VIC 20 because that is what I coveted as a kid, but the C64 just has so much more scope for me (not that I have touched it much lately!)
  6. My girlfriend helped me clean up my unit as I was kinda stuck in a depressed mode of having moved in but not knowing what to do with all my shit. She came up with this position for my C64. We just used a crate and an old tv cabinet to get a rough idea. Not sure it's the best position because I won't get much light and I feel I want a bit of sunlight and it doesn't look right next to the cab. On the plus side, this is in my living room so with summer approaching I can have aircon (",) The other position I can put it is in my games room. That is set up with consoles and it isn't a large room. But I figured out a neat way to have it set up in the cupboard! Neat, and some nice natural light from outside. For some reason I want natural light when I finally get serious with the Commie.but no aircon in that room...
  7. For investments, I prefer shares. You don't have to lug crap around wherever you go and as spectacular as all the 'found it in a shed' type things are when sold, most of us aren't going to see that kind of return. And if it's a car, well, how much did you spend keeping it going, storing it etc? Computers and consoles I buy for fun. Sure they have gone up in value, but I probably won't part with any of it soon anyway. By the time I want to, maybe the values have gone down again...
  8. Played this for the first time at a retro meetup. In a high score comp. It's amazing! I chocked (we had just one game each) but in between players I had another go and got a bit more of a feel for it (",)
  9. I prefer the C64C purely because that is the machine I found on the side of the road one day. Feels like fate and so I feel quite attached to it (",)
  10. Any idea which issue? Edit, didn't think of just googling http://www.commodore.ca/gallery/magazines/ahoy/Ahoy-issue-26.pdf
  11. To the OP, Although I got mine from elsewhere, the future was 8 bit was indispensable for finding out how to use one. And he has a great set of disk images to download most of which work straight up (",)
  12. I'm just putting the finishing touches on another controller, so my solution will be the time honoured method of just leaving controllers in both ports
  13. Yep, the definite 'must-have' is to do some research on power supply options. I made my own from some simple ready to go parts, others make them from scratch. A C64 saver is easiest way I guess (mine didn't come with a power supply so I had no choice!). Also apparently a C128 power supply is safe, but rare...
