Comment on Commodore PET 8296-D by Lasse Reinstroem http://www.nightfallcrew.com/04/12/2011/commodore-pet-8296-d/comment-page-1/#comment-148637 Lasse Reinstroem Tue, 15 May 2018 03:39:36 +0000 http://www.nightfallcrew.com/?p=6954#comment-148637 Nice computer and when i remember right, then the secondary-school in which i was from 1984 to 1988, had those PET 8296-D computers in the informatik (computer science) classroom. I am not 100 percent sure, cause it`s such a long time ago and i only had informatik one year back in the time, but when i look at the computer cases and the monitors with the blue green lettering then i am sure that it was Commodore PET computers. Funny thing was, nearly half of the school class had either a C-64 or a Atari-800 at home which had much better graphics at that time. But nevertheless, the PET`s are nice computers, especially for retro collectors and not cheap here in Germany when you want to buy one.

Comment on Hoxs64 Commodore 64 Emulator Updated v1.0.9.9 by Peter 41 http://www.nightfallcrew.com/16/04/2018/hoxs64-commodore-64-emulator-updated-v1-0-9-9/comment-page-1/#comment-148609 Peter 41 Sun, 06 May 2018 03:05:42 +0000 http://www.nightfallcrew.com/?p=13921#comment-148609 My favorite C64-emulator because it works flawlessly under 50Hz-fullscreen resolution while VICE has a soundbug with 50Hz, which means either you have perfect scrolling or you have perfect sound in VICE and not both at the same time. That`s the big disadvantage of VICE and therefore i like HOXS64 alot. Scrolls perfect, sounds perfect and has a good smoothing-graphicfilter.

Ti chiedo un'altra cosa: per testare un condensatore (se non ha perso acido potrebbe essere funzionante) lo devo per forza dissaldare oppure lo posso testare anche quando è saldato sulla piastra?

Comment on Commodore Amiga 500 full replacement Power Supply by William Lorvik http://www.nightfallcrew.com/15/06/2014/commodore-amiga-500-full-replacement-power-supply/comment-page-1/#comment-148552 William Lorvik Fri, 27 Apr 2018 21:14:13 +0000 http://www.nightfallcrew.com/?p=10822#comment-148552 Mean Wells RT-50B is plenty powerful enough with its max 5A rating on 5V line. Keep in mind it requires minimum 0.2A load on +12V for stable operation, so a power resistor (39 Ohm, 5-10W) should hjelp. You can do the same for the -12V with 82 Ohm 3W if you want. My A500 psu was fine, so I just recapped it. Mean Wells RT-50B is plenty powerful enough with its max 5A rating on 5V line.
