Dtvtrans+ v1.0pre3 Release *updated*

October 20th, 2008 No comments

dtvtrans is a PC <-> C64DTV V2/V3 transfer solution. It uses a cable connected between the parallel port of the PC and a joystick port on the C64DTV.  (port 1, port 2 and the user port supported).

The transfer speed is roughly 15 Kbyte/s PC -> DTV and 13 KByte/s DTV -> PC. Used with Lallafa’s dtv2ser+usb hardware it is roughly 17 KByte/s PC -> DTV and 19 KByte/s DTV -> PC.

Changelog:
dtvtrans+ 1.0pre3 (20081009) 1570

  • [PC] use -n for safe setup and -s for sync simulate (clash with tlr’s dtvtrans 1.0)

DTVmkfs v0.9 released + Mac OSx source fix

October 19th, 2008 No comments

Dtvmkfs build a file system image for flashing into the C64 DTV (v2/v3). The hummer racing game uses a different flash load routine, so the SYS-address needs to be set in a special way for this to work, or a DTV-kernel must be used.

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.
