  1. I always wanted to ask: why were there such great games (original and ports) for Commodore 64 that never made it to Atari XL/XE series? Was the reason only hardware issues? What are the key factors that determined this situation? Forgive my ignorance, - Y -
  2. Ladies and gentleman of the retro computing world... this VIC-20 makes absolutely no sense. It seems to be a bit of a Frankenstein's monster, it has the wrong badge and keyboard type for the model number board (1001006 REV 3), it has a PET style keyboard with mustard function keys, with a silver (not rainbow) VIC-20 badge while the serial number sticker is for a VIC-1001. Clearly the keyboard has been replaced at some point, what really confuses me though are two of the chips on the board, they are a dark grey color with a plaque for the chip type and number, but here's the kicker the pins are gold. Could this have anything to do with the serial number, which to date is the lowest I've seen (102640). Here's a link to a VIC-20 serial number registry (currently mine is at the top) https://cbmvic.net/registry/all, you'll get more detailed info there. Here's some pictures for you to mull over, any help or info at all would be appreciated. It was owned by a fairly prominent journalist (I will NOT tell you his name), so it may have been a 'review computer' sent to him by Commodore, but there would likely be something in or on the case/board saying that. Also I have no means of powering it on yet, seeing as I don't have an a/c adapter that fit's nor do I have the proper video cables. Help, please
  3. I'm looking to buy a working and clean Commodore 64C Keyboard, preferably the later version with Text on top of keys, but will be happy with the earlier version as well. Thanks, I've been having one hell of time finding a replacement anywhere. ISB
  4. I have one Commodore 1541 drive that I picked up a few months ago that I just don't have the space to store and not likely to get any use out of in the near future. (much to my chagrin, lol) They have all been tested for power and power on, but unfortunately I cannot test on a C64 that they actually will read/write disks- so caveat emptor there. I'm asking $20 shipped in the CUSA for each drive, or if you want all four $70- I will try my best to find a strong box and pack them as well as I can. Thanks in advance! Nathan updated: the one with the Alps mechanism is sold, two of the others are sold.

  12. Our next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, July 5, at the Grand Prairie Municipal Airport from 7:00 to 9:00 PM. The facilty is open on Monday, July 4, but since that is a holiday, I figured that Tuesday would be a better day. Contact DoctorClu on Atariage for more details. See you there!
  13. I am so happy to announce the public availability of WorldBankBBS. What makes WorldBankBBS special? The BBS Gateway! Once you're registered on WBBBS, you can use the system to connect to another BBS that is marked as Active on the Commodore BBS Outpost website. It makes life a lot more convenient than simply dialing blindly from an overstuffed phone book. All of the available systems are listed in alphabetical order for your perusal. WorldBankBBS is truly multi-platform. It has equal support for PETSCII and ANSI graphics, including a common Full Screen Editor. The message boards are fast and powerful! Call today and see for yourself: PETSCII - bbs.paytonbyrd.com : 6400 ANSI - bbs.paytonbyrd.com : 6401 ASCII - bbs.paytonbyrd.com : 23 I look forward to seeing you soon!

  15. What is the opinion on how durable the VIC-20 is when compared to it's bigger brother, the 64? I have fiddled with three VIC-20's over the years (two are mine, one cleaned up for someone else) and I really haven't had much issue with them. I currently own two breadbox 64's and one works, one just brings up a blank screen. (Possible power supply failure on one of them?) Now, both of my current VIC-20's have the two prong power supply plug for roughly 9 or so volts and one is a bit of a middle range unit that has the later logo, but still uses the earlier power adaptor. One thing I have noticed is that the these units don't seem to have the failiure rate that the later power supplies used on the 64 did and my earlier supply can even be opened up and the fuse replaced in it if need be. Looking in through the back of the VIC-20 (Yeah, you can see the insides through the ports!), I can see some socketed chips in there compared with the one 64 I checked, which had all soldered chips. In all honesty, I originally thought the VIC-20 sould be super cheaply made compared to the 64 when I got my first one, but so far the units are a bit more like tanks. My only issues I have had have been the external RF boxes acting up (easily bypassed with the right AV cord) and the power switches wanting to seize in the off position. Actually, I might have gotten that repaired too with some good lubricated switch and relay cleaner today. So, what's the opinion on how durable the VIC-20 actually is?

  20. okay, I saw this Amiga lightgun by actionware on ebay. It's still live: http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Commodore-Amiga-Actionware-Light-Gun-Gray-Phaser-/272807926381?hash=item3f849e9a6d:g:NrAAAOSwutpZlGZK The gun looks exactly the same as my xg-1 lightgun. It even looks like there is red left from a peeled Atari sticker. Also, note the insane price (dunno... seller may just be delirious). I read somewhere that Actionware often repurposed and resold nintendo zappers with their lightgun games. I haven't seen evidence of this, but it sure as heck looks like that is what they did with the xg1 here. Now I'm wondering if the xg1 works on the Amiga and C64 or if there is some mod done to the guns. I have a c64 and I love lightgun games so having it work on another computer would be a plus. I'm also thinking... heck... maybe I should just do the mod and sell my xg1 for 120 bucks on ebay lol (okay not really but there may be others that might want to).
  21. Hello all Just a heads up that I am selling my Commodore Music Maker program on Ebay. eBay Auction -- Item Number: 160767698027 Its for the Commodore 128 but I had the 128D so I could never use the keyboard overlay they have. Thanks for reading. -Reid
  22. While noodling around on YouTube, I've been seeing a lot of comments on Amiga-related videos where people say that they had an external diskette drive for their Amiga computer but the drive stopped working properly. This may not actually be the diskette drive. So before you throw the drive in the trash or recycle it or commit it to some other horrible fate, try testing the drive on an Amiga that has no issues using a different external drive (contact a friend who has a working multi-diskette configuration and see if they'll let you test the drive). It could be that one (or both) of the CIA chips in the Amiga are fried. Possible causes include unplugging and plugging parallel, serial, or disk drive cables while the Amiga is on. You can unplug and plug parallel and serial cables on a powered IBM PC. However, on an Amiga you can damage your machine doing that. In the past I repaired a number of OCS Amigas with this condition. This also means that some of the diskettes out there that are supposedly bad, aren't. Again, it's worth testing on an known good machine.
  23. Hello! So I pulled out a C128D (a PAL C128D, not a C128D CR) from storage. There was issues with it, that I narrowed down to one cause (tho I didn't checked the Datasette imput or the cart slot as I have neither of those). I had glitches, the C128 mode locked, and the C64 mode glitching at keyboard input. I went and checked all connections, reseated all possible chips, and there we go. Except for one thing : the included floppy drive. The light goes on, the motor spin endlessly. After looking up I learned that in C128 mode, if the drive is on, the computer try to load from the drive. If I pull the power plug from the drive, the C128 mode goes READY and I can type in, so on that side, I'm clear I checked out on the 1571 drive and it seems that my problem would be caused by various IC failures. Is there maybe other reasons, or a way to replace the drive? Alternative solutions maybe?
