  1. I purchased my Ramrod MMOS for $63 back in 2014. What is really rare is the fastchip that goes on the board. Come to think of it, I've never seen an original OSN set of chips either. The ones I have on my MMOS I burned myself from files from AtariAge. It took 2014 to 2018 to find a NOS Newell fastchip for sale as well for $76 but I would have paid more for that if I had to
  2. @Gunstar Yep, that worked! I see a notification now for it.
  3. Regarding the tagging, it’s supposedly a new feature now with the forum upgrade. ” You can now tag someone in a post by prefixing their username with "@". For instance, if you want to tag me, you'd type "@Albert" and then choose my username from the popup that appears. This will cause my username to be highlighted in blue and I'll receive a notification that I was tagged in a post (or elsewhere). “
  4. You can find a few items from Mosaic on archive.org as well if you want to look there, but nothing about the 64K board directly. They do have some of the newsletters I believe that might be useful and of course the manual for a 32K board.
  5. How about this? https://www.atariarchives.org/creativeatari/The_Mosaic_64K_RAM_Card.php
  6. Yes, $459 to get the 3d printed case, rev c development board, floppy, PS2 mouse and keyboard. But you can just pay $299 for the development board (without a floppy drive) and it includes shipping. Supposedly if they get to the point where it's made for everyone, there will be a cheaper cost reduced version and I guess at that point it will have a new case as well.
  7. This is the reason it was created, for a challenge and I guess her opinion on what a Commodore 256 could have been: This is from the blog: http://blog.snapeda.com/2018/06/06/building-the-commodore-computer-that-should-have-existed-an-interview-with-stefany-allaire/ "Stefany, you’re working on a very interesting project. Can you tell us more about it? Sure! Not too long ago, I was watching this YouTube channel called The 8 Bit Guy, whose creator David Murray, reviews retro computers – things like the Commodore 64, and also homemade computers. On his April 12th episode, he did a review of a computer based solely on TTL logic called the Gigatron. At the end of the episode, he made the remark that he’d never encountered his perfect computer. He went on to post his full wishlist on his website. Already looking for a new project and in the “retro” mood, it felt like the perfect project. Considering that I was part of the whole Commodore 64 revolution, it brought me back down memory lane. This revolution was also the reason I got into electronics design in the first place. You have to realize that David’s wish list, is pretty much the specifications for what a Commodore C256 could have been. I set out to make his dream a reality." Debates about what Commodore would have done or not done next wasn't the intention of this thread, just to present the info here in case someone else missed the project.
  8. Yes, I guess my statement was poorly worded.
  9. Good question, you can see specs here: https://wiki.c256foenix.com/index.php?title=Main_Page I just wanted to clarify that it was not for memory.
  10. Here's a short video just created by a guy creating the BASIC for the C256: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_BDClP2kQ8 I wanted to mention, unlike the C64 and C128 the 256 after the C doesn't denote memory size, but color amount on the C256.
  11. The final regular version (if they get that far) is supposed to be cheaper since it will be a cost reduced PCB etc... This is just a development board. $299 will get you what you need to start playing around with the platform from what I can see in their store. $349 if you want one with the floppy drive. Of course then you'll need to supply the PS2 keyboard, mouse and a monitor.
  12. I think she is working on it because she can and to meet a challenge. If there are enough people interested, it may progress further. Here's an interview: http://blog.snapeda.com/2018/06/06/building-the-commodore-computer-that-should-have-existed-an-interview-with-stefany-allaire/
  13. The C256 project keeps chugging along. They have some development boards for sale now on their site: https://c256foenix.com/shop/
  14. Yeah, the 1541 Ultimate was my first disk emulator (the previous version) and then I learned about the Turbo Chameleon 64. The TC64 just has some things the Ultimate doesn't, namely the turbo part, VGA output etc.. I use the dock with the TC64 now and then in standalone mode. Having a place to plugin a joystick is really cool! And you can also plugin a 64 or Amiga keyboard into the docking station if you want to use one in standalone mode. Of course you get the IR remote with it for use as a wireless joystick if you like. What I like the most is that I don't tie up the IEC port when I use it, something you have to do with the 1541 Ultimate. Just a small thing really. I'm thankful to have them both. What's good about the 1541 Ultimate is that it works with my Commodore 128. That is a plus for the 1541 Ultimate. The TC64 will not work on the 128 and they say you can damage it if you try! The latest version of the Ultimate II+ is on my list to purchase one day of course. Maybe I should sell a few of my Incognito boards I've never used to cover my purchase
  15. For disk drive emulation, RAM expansion etc there is: https://icomp.de/shop-icomp/en/shop/product/Turbo_Chameleon_64.html The Turbo Chameleon 64 does quite a bit. There are different kernals for the 64 and you can use this to temporarily replace them without opening the 64 for instance. Of course this kernal replacement feature is not strictly available with the TC 64, you can do with this with the 1541 Ultimate and also the EZ-Flash cartridge. Plus it can completely emulate a 64 on its own when not being used in cartridge mode. I have one and love it, but if cost is a factor, iComp is not your best bet
