Hey all, I have been collecting games for a long time and finally got my first C64 console find. I got everything pictured for $20 total at a garage sale today. I haven't tested anything out but there is the boxed console, boxed printer, printer paper, boxed floppy disk drive, monitor, controller, tons of bootleg games and about a dozen official disk games. Only 3 cartridges were included. Unfortunately, the wife has been accepting of my large collection but already wanted this lot gone before I even unloaded the car. I think I have everything for the setup (total noob here) but not sure if stuff like the printer and bootleg disks are worth holding/selling/trading or if I should just take them to Goodwill. Any tips for setting it up would be great as testing this seems daunting. Thanks!
Hello! I'm a first time (and super excited) Commodore 64 owner. I have or do own just about every old console on the planet, and a bunch of old computers, but haven't used a C64 since high school or ever owned one. Right now i have: -The computer and PSU -Monitor -1541 Floppy disc drive -My trusty Atari 2600 joysticks. Before diving into "collecting" and all that; what are the best accessories to just enjoy the system, its software, games, etc. for starters? -Is there a good floppy drive emulator that is known to work well at a reasonable price somewhere? (links appreciated) -Is it worth also getting the tape deck emulator i've seen on ebay; or will these games work just fine on floppy emulator? -What else are the "good to get" items for any new setup? -What do I NOT NEED that people are shilling out there for the C64? Thanks in advance!
