SJLOAD C64/C64Dtv Fast Loader

January 23rd, 2009 No comments

SJLOAD is a C64/C64DTV software fastloader. Its main difference from normal fastloaders is that it only works with Jiffy-enabled drives and uses the Jiffy protocol. This makes it handy for people who have a Jiffy-enabled drive (also new hardware such as SD2IEC) but do not want to make the hardware changes necessary for exchanging the C64 kernal.

SJLOAD speed is a bit higher than normal Jiffy since SJLOAD uses the same protocol but a different implementation (it disables the VICII during load etc.). With an SD2IEC, SJLOAD is about 15% faster than a normal Jiffy kernal.

SJLOAD is loosely based on VDOS (1986) by Edward Carroll. However, the fast loading routines have been replaced completely by 1570.

Make Waves v1.00 by FMan

January 4th, 2009 No comments

Make Waves is a command line utility to make sinus waves for demos and such.

Each wave is composed of one or more discrete waveforms, which can be created independently. You can make waves that represent a full sine wave, any half of it or a quarter. You can also set a range between 0 and 255 to get suitable values for example to position sprites at the correct height.

You are also able to set a variable length for each wave up to 256 bytes.

C64/Vic20 File Browser for U1541

October 19th, 2008 No comments

It was written with the U1541 user interface in mind, and I hope I have achieved the same ease of use.

Features:

  • Browsing much like the U1541 user interface.
  • It even handles more than 256 files per directory. (now I know why Gideon wants to postpone that feature)
  • Devices 8-11 are selectable.
  • Basic load address information (verrrry useful for VIC users)
  • ‘sys 320′ hook to reload browser (after a reset, or when it is overwritten by a file load)
  • Only 8 blocks.

1541 Ultimate: the first Batch-2 small issue

October 15th, 2008 No comments

Unfortunately, the first Batch-2 units shipped have a small issue. It turns out that the order of the cartridge ROMs flashed is faulty. Therefore, the Final Cartridge 3 and the Action Replay cartridges don’t work. You can fix this by applying the official V1.5 release that can be found in the download section. Of course, cartridges that are shipping from this moment on won’t have this issue.
