  1. I both agree and disagree with this statement. As a DC fan, I think it would be great to have a portable mini. The DC looks great on a VGA screen but would it look so good on an ARM-based SOC system? The DC hardware really pops in Vga. The library is good but many of it's hits have been released on later generation consoles. Regarding the modding and hacking; there's no need for PSU replacements or GD-emus, unless you want an ideal setup. The HDMI thing is a problem if you have no older PC monitors or cheaper TV brands LCDs, I suppose. Composite on a 4k tv probably looks gash and I guess most have no SCART or VGA?
  2. That's pretty good, but Notaz did this on the Openpandora in 2015! He also did Diablo 2 and Starcraft: https://www.giantpockets.com/diablo-ii-running-on-open-pandora/
  3. I would like one of these, do you still have a spare?
  4. Rip 'em to memory card with CFW and put them on the shelf.
  5. I've always loved Mr Do! I first played it in The Trading Post in Dartford (local arcade/pool hall/tattoo parlour) in '82 or '83. It's one of two games I pirated on my modded Wii (and that's only because it was a Japanese limited release). I'm still not amazing at it, but I love the crisp candy colour gfx and amazing arcade/fairground sounds. Pure class.
  6. @carleton, @ScouserInExile Yeah, same thing - I had a 1541, Trilogic Expert Cartridge and Makro Assembler cartridge, Koala pad. Still feel a bit panicky and nauseous if I think about it.
  7. Lorf: yeah, I'm well aware of Scratch and Python but I want to give them something initially with low expectations and utter immediacy and not multiple layers of stuff (boot up, login screens, start scratch etc.) Doing stuff in scratch is more rewarding visually, but I want some very simple interaction and I think the limits of 8 bit are are good place to start (if only to understand the unglamorous and unforgiving nature of it).
  8. Just bought a breadbin C64 off of Ebay. I need a new Psu and some other bits and bobs, I massively regret selling my C64 to get my Amiga 1000 (sadly also sold). I threw away all my discs in the mid 2000s, another regret, especially as there seems to be software I've not found again and obviously my own basic and 6510 code, all gone. I have a MiST fpga and the C64 implementation is really good, but I want to teach BASIC to my kids and keep it very simple and immediate.
  9. Batman: Brave and The Bold (which way around is that?) is very good. Also, Marvel Ultimate Alliance holds up, just. Tangled is pretty dull, but Brave isn't terrible.
  10. @RastanSagaNever played the GB version of it. Is it any good?
  11. @disperse and recoagulate Ah, wasn't paying much attention, just started reading. My fault, no shade intended.
  12. Really interesting article. I love his bombastic style of writing, it suggests that the message he is delivering is matter of life and death. Not sure he'd be much fun in real life, but I love that he cares so much about it!
  13. Was this April Fool, the mocked up game that they said would use the 6510 in the 1541 disk drive to do multi processing, thereby doubling what the C64 could do per frame?
  14. I would love to read one if you did - I used to love the Andrew Braybrook dev diaries in ZZap 64.
  15. Never played No More Heroes then? Or so l337 that you never had to save, maybe?
