  1. PAL C64c connected to North American 1084s-P via Chroma/Luma cable, no color. I use a 13" JVC TM series monitor for my PAL computers that use composite or Chroma/Luma(Y/C input). I've bought three CRT monitors that have been shipped and have been lucky to have shippers that know how to pack them. The 1084 in the pict came to Iowa from New Jersey.
  2. Will an North American C= monitor display PAL even using Chroma Luma? I didn't think so, I'll test this tonight with my 1084S(p).
  3. Or if you have a 3d printer, that design can be found on Thingiverse, https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2767791
  4. I converted an NTSC C64c shortboard to PAL following this guys instructions. http://biosrhythm.com/?p=1420 It was quite simple, and I think would be less hassle than packing and shipping a board. I later bought short and long board PAL C64c from UK and Poland then reconverted my original C64c to NTSC. I have an extra 8565 VIC-II, but it's my spare I'd hate let go of it.... I think I do have a spare crystal I would send ya. No experience with breadbin conversions, but the PAL VICs for those (6569) seem a little pricier. Ebay seems awash of MOS/CSG 8565 chips, around $20-50 shipped to US.
  5. Wow, this thing is small. First attempt not happy with, not fitting together well. My head turned out great! Trying again, but would prolly work out better with a smaller nozzle, which I don't have. pic: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1G1m0Vrn8mQ2EyO0IM2F8kXHFU7d7o4ke/view?usp=sharing watch live: https://www.twitch.tv/6mmbrx
  6. I can give this a go tomorrow. I'm at 48% of a 16 hour print right now, hoping I don't run out of filament PrintCam: https://www.twitch.tv/6mmbrx
  7. I have a Roxio usb capture device that is likely a branded EasyCap gizmo. Using OBS Studio to capture I'm not seeing the vertical lines that you posted above, it looks very much like playing on an LCD display. sample vid:
  8. Check Craigslist and Facebook marketplace, shouldn't have to wait too long to come across one. https://washingtondc.craigslist.org/nva/ele/d/computer-monitor-19-vga/6732498378.html
  9. I picked one up from Console5, but it appears that they are of stock. I'll look after work if I have an extra. https://console5.com/store/male-joystick-port-atari-2600-7800-colecovision-new-old-stock.html
  10. Last year the wife and I went to Galloping Ghost the second Thursday in September right at 1:00pm, we were the only folks there for about a half hour. We left around 5pm and there were still only about 15 people in there. Wish we coulda stayed longer. And I agree with Keatah, Lou Malnatti's >>>>> Giordano's as is Gino's East
  11. We burned several thousand CD's at work a couple months ago, I'll check Monday if we kept any empty spindles. They hold 100.
  12. Check out e5frog's tip in the comment section about the fire buttons. "If you solder the fire wire to the brass ring on the button and ground both the metal pieces under the button - that will help a lot." The one gripe I've had with my TAC-2's was the fire button wasn't 100% responsive, like 1 of 437 times it would miss an action, even after sanding the contacts. I did e5frog's tip on one of my TAC-2 sticks, problem solved.
  13. The StarFighter and it's siblings, SlikStik and Blaster, are basically single button, smaller versions of the TAC-2. Internally, the mechanics are the same.
  14. 1084 just arrived in fine shape, well packaged! Look great! Thank you.
