  1. Congrats! It’s a Festivus Miracle! 🙂 Out of curiosity since I’ve yet to open mine, is the plug for these US or Euro? I know it’s moot as you can just use a 5V USB plug but I’m curious. Thanks - and congrats again. Glad to hear you got them.
  2. I hope that’s truthful! Good luck - hope you get it!
  3. Oh no. I am so sorry to hear. Prayers and condolences to Oscar. May she Rest In Peace. 😔
  4. Hope so too. They’ve totally bungled this whole thing, at least on this side of the pond. I don’t think there were supply issues in Europe, were there?
  5. And that supply is dried up now too. I see themewsh got one, hopefully some others here that wanted one were able to get one.
  6. Says there’s one left now. Get it while it’s hot! LOL
  7. Hey all - I just happened to notice the dealer I got my Vic20 from is still showing 7 available. $145 shipped from the UK. Link if you’re interested: The Vic20 (Electronic Games) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08BSMKXKV/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_fabc_H0CYFbD5MBT2C?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
  8. Wow. So had yours been cancelled and now it’s back in the queue, or is this still your delivery updates?
  9. Wow, really? What was the total cost to buy/have shipped?
  10. I hope for everyone’s sake they do. They did not do pre-order buyers right, or Amazon didn’t. I did my C64 pre-order in August and got it the same day people were starting to get cancellation notices, and like I said, I was able to somehow get a euro Vic20 ordered (and delivered - miracle!) before that option totally disappeared on Amazon. There seems to be a scad of minis still on the virtual shelves - they need to crank more of these out. The demand is obviously there. Then they need to do Amiga, and Atari 8 bit, and ST, and... LOL
  11. Ok great - now I’ll be on pins and needles awaiting the return of my revamped CV!!! 🙂 Thanks guys!
  12. Hi all... I have sent my CV off to be modded by Ruggers and just received the Ultimate SD cart I’d ordered a while back. Since I can’t actually use it yet, I was just looking at the software on the card that came with it and noticed the two bonus games they include are .rom files. I have the entire collection of CV games from years ago that I’ve used in emulation that are all .col files. I checked some rom sites out today and it appears their files are .col as well. Does anyone know if the .col file format works on the real CV with this cart? Thanks.
  13. Good to know. I may have one of those laying around somewhere. Thanks guys!
  14. Hey Carlsson - thanks again for offering to ship me a "The Vic20". I did get the order I put in that day we spoke and it arrived. I can't believe people that put in before me have now had their orders cancelled. Such bullsh*t! I compared the games listed on my boxes with the listed games from the links you provided. The Vic20 list on mine is identical to the website, but that's because I'm certain mine came from Europe, somehow via Amazon's backend page I stumbled across that weekend I talked to you. It was really weird because a direct search in Amazon yielded nothing, but linking from a google search I did brought me to an American Amazon page for a euro based distributor. I was able to order one, shipped, for just over $150 US. Totally bizarre. The games listed on the C64 box I got are a bit different than the euro list on the website. I've cobbled the two lists in comparison below if anyone else is curious of the differences. According to the site, two of the Euro games (I highlighted in red) are Vic-20 games. If any of the US C64 games are Vic-20 games, I can't tell from the box and I don't know off the top of my head based on the names. I really hope they make more of these and give others that wanted them (and pre-ordered them!) another chance to get them.
