  2. Hey guys, as you may well know, the fantastic Reset64 http://reset.cbm8bit.com/ threw a Commodore 64 4k game coding competition in which 37 entries were creating, and put forth for enjoyment, and scrutiny! Our Podcast, Pixel Gaiden, just released an episode in which we played and reviewed every single one! (unofficially of course) Please take time to check out the games themselves, as well as give our show a listen. You can find it wherever you currently listen to podcasts, or check the link below. Of course we would love it if you could like and subscribe as well!

  4. I am looking for good info on hacking the C64 DTV into a proper working Commodore 64 system. Ten or more years later, a lot of the old links with necessary diagrams, firmware and instructions are dead. I have owned the original joystick model for years and recently found a Hummer Offroad plug and play game in a local thrift. The Hummer game seems like a good candidate to modify, as the game-play itself isn't great and I seem to remember it being a revised version of the original Jeri Ellsworth design. What I am wanting to do, at minimum, is to solder on a ps/2 keyboard port and a serial port to use with a real 1541 floppy drive.

    After many questions and requests we've decided to introduce new coding compo for the 8 bit Atari: "Illegal is legal". To take part in the compo your entry needs to meet some requirements: - they may only use illegal opcodes, - they should switch OFF the OS in the very beginning, - they should work on every Atari machine located within 320 km from Licheń Stary, - they don't use addresses such as $d200-1f, $d301, $d640-$d65f, $d740-$d75f etc. [polish text: grab the teddy bear xxl]
  6. What see is what you get. $10 or trade for 8bit atari, 7800 or Colecovision stuff.

  8. Today I was brave and after viewing tons of safety videos and obtaining 'overkill' protection (funny word for working on CRTs), I recapped my entire Commodore 1702 monitor. It sat for over a year but I still had gloves and boots, discharged, etc. I have more to do, but before I plug in for smoke tests, I hope to share pics and discuss some potential weak points. When I got the 1702 in a lot sale, it 'worked' but I heard some scary periodic power arcing and turned it off. There was a small burning smell and I waited about a year, thinking something fried. In that time, I learned the basic mechanics of a CRT, and opened my 1702 today. After recapping, my paper plate of old caps had leaking liquid but it is hard to determine which one(s) were the culprits. I hope all caps being replaced will fix any previous problems. I air sprayed the mainboard and all daughter boards and then washed all with Electronics cleaner. I will likely isoprop any white residue the cleaner left and hope to get this back up and running. *Interestingly, Commodore made an error on the silkscreen on some 1702s at capacitor C101 (like mine) as documented by Console5: https://console5.com/store/commodore-1702-cap-kit.html and their wiki: https://console5.com/wiki/Commodore_1702 where I printed my checklist and maps from. All PCBs look like the business end is only on the bottom. Questions: Should I replace anything other than the caps? Voltage regulators? What caused the arcing before? bad caps? The power switch is solid. Should I RGB mod? Replace the power cord to one with a ground? I will do a multi-meter continuity test on all fuses. Also, I may have cracked or lifted three traces/pads so advice on my repair plans is appreciated: Mainboard Problems: C201 (10uF 16v)- Negative pad lifting C204 (3.3uF 50v) - Bipolar (BP) lifting on one leg C603 (10uF 50v) - lifting pad Power Board: C905 (100uF 25v) - NOTE the red patch wire is for visual reference and can be desoldered easily. Also, I will not plug it back in the wall until I am certain all is well (and it is sealed up!) In some of these intended fixes, the plan is to use a wire if the path between points may contact unintended places. Otherwise, for a straight shot, I like the remaining clipped capacitor legs. Note I have yet to clip the legs on the spots in question so I have visual aid when finishing. Also, how precise should I consider gauge size when I use such short wire runs? My guess is the power board may matter more in this thinking. I do hope this project will fix the arcing issues (please don't be a tube problem itself), and restore this 1702 to day one original glory!

  10. Here we will have a look at the good old Commodore VIC-20: And here the same video in 3D:
  11. Hi everyone, I'have VIC20 that I bought in 80's. During this days I tried to turn on it, after 20 years well-deserved rest. If I try to lauch a game, I don't hear any sound, except like "pc speacker". Reading the manual, I found POKE comand, so If I try to digit POKE 36878,15 (volume max) and than POKE 36874,222 or 36875,222 or 36876,222 I don't hear any sound (with the tv audio volume set to max), but with 36877,222 I hear a noise like "pc speacker" Also, only once, the VIC20 connected to TV via RF modulator, the screen became grey color e it began to flicker, so I tried to connect the VIC via scart cable e TV said "no signal". Now this trouble never appereance again. I would to replace the MOS 6561-101, but I want to learn your opinion first or any suggestion is much appreciated. Thanks

  17. Revival Studios is proud to announce that they started development and publishing for the Commodore PET home computers. Their first release is a port of their game Avalanche. The game will be the first physical release in years for the aging computer system. Avalanche is a fun action game people can just pickup and play. The player has to shoot the various gems that are falling down from the top of the screen. The gems are marked with symbols and the player has to match up the symbol of his ship with the symbol on the gems. The game will automatically increase in speed, but by strategically shooting gems you can align up to 5 gems in a row to gain points as well as slowing down the game for prolonged gameplay. Game Features: - Available on Cassette Tape and as Free Digital Download - Works on the all PET computers (except PET-2001) - Fast, flicker free, arcade gameplay - Sound support You can see the game running on a real Commodore PET system at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5BSZTqwrWb0 The game is available on Cassette tape and as free digital download. For more information about this and other upcoming releases for the Commodore PET, including screenshots and packaging photos, visit: http://cbmpet.revival-studios.com/
  18. I'm forwarding this on behalf of the SRCS admin because I think some people here could find this interesting. Come one, come all, to the Seattle Retro-Computing Society's regular monthly meeting! It will be held Saturday, August 25th from 11:30 AM to 5:00 PM. Do you do any of the following with old computers? Will you be near Seattle on Saturday? + Use, collect, and/or restore them + Play games on them + Write programs for them + Develop new hardware for them + Help other people do any of the above If your answer was "yes," then the SRCS is for you! We exist so you can show off your awesome stuff, bounce ideas off of fellow enthusiasts, and be inspired by one another's achievements, plans and aspirations. No idea is too big or too small, and we're not picky about what flavor of vintage machine you prefer! Come on down and tell us about it! The meetings are graciously hosted by the Living Computer Museum, which is gradually fitting out a computer museum in Seattle's SODO neighborhood. There will be refreshments, a Buy-Sell-Free-Trade table, and enough table space & power to set up anything you may want to show off! For further details, please see our web page at http://www.seattleretrocomputing.com/ and our mailing list at http://groups.google...attle-retrocomp . Hope to see you there!

  23. Looking for a Commodore 1581 drive.
  24. Hey guys, I'm new here, but I recently saved a load of stuff from the garbage. A lot of this stuff I have no idea on the value, so I'm posting it here in hopes that people will find it interesting and make fair offers. I don't expect to get "ebay prices", I'd just like this to go to people who will enjoy it. Pictures are below. I realize most of them are inadequate, so if you'd like to see something in more detail, let me know and I'll post more pictures! I ship from Provo, UT. Local pickup is totally acceptable! Not pictured: 7x 1541 Commodore disk drives. Probably not worth their shipping weight, but if you can think of something let me know!
  25. What Is It? Hayesduino is an Arduino sketch that provides a bridge between the world of the Internet and small devices that do not have built-in ethernet capabilities. Old computers, such as the Commodore 64, Apple II and Atari 800 have serial ports, but do not have readily available Internet solutions with wide software support. While specialized solutions do exist for these platforms, they all require specialized software to use them and do not lend themselves to more general usage such as simply opening a socket, sending some data, and/or receiving some data. Hayesduino bridges this gap by emulating a Hayes compatible modem. This allows users to initiate Internet communications via sockets that are opened by "dialing" to a hostname and port. An example would be initiating a telnet session with a host by simply typing atdt hostname:23 and waiting for the host to respond. Using this technique, any online socket can be reached and communicated with. Hayesduino could have accomplished this without emulating a modem, but there needed to be a good way to allow the small machine to receive incoming connections. The three platforms listed above were all very popular systems for hosting BBS (bulletin board systems) which would accept calls over a telephone line via modem. Hayesduino simulates the incoming phone call whenever the software receives an inbound connection on port 23 (this is changeable in the code). When an incoming connection is detected, the Hayesduino will toggle the DCE-DCD line to trigger the remote software to answer the incoming "call". In this way a classic BBS can be hooked up directly to the Internet. http://hayesduino.codeplex.com
