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.


  • 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.

Lallafa’s DTV2Ser v0.4 Released!

September 29th, 2008 No comments

Dtv2ser is a small hardware device that bridges TLR’s dtvtrans protocol used to communicate with a DTV via a RS232 interface to your Mac or PC.

By using a serial-to-USB adapter the dtv2ser provides dtvtrans access for all modern PCs where the original dtvtrans parallel cable cannot be used.

The new dtv2ser+usb board directly integrates the USB adapter and realizes the full dtv2ser functionality on a USB-stick-like device.

Commodore Announces a mini-Notebook

September 3rd, 2008 No comments

No, your eyes are deceiving you.

Commodore (as in Commdore Vic 20,C-64, Amiga) is bringing a Netbook to market. The UMMD 8010/F Netbook was shown off at IDF in Berlin.

The specs sound familar to those following the scene

- 10 inch screen
- Webcamera
- 1.6Ghz C7–M CPU
- 80GB HD
- 1GB of RAM
- WiFi
- Bluetooth optional

The price is a bit on the high side for NetBooks at around $600. Maybe they are counting on a wave of nostalgia buying.

Thanks to Leo Sexad for the news.
