My new toy

Postby varettaja » Wed Apr 25, 2018 7:44 pm

Hi fellas,

It's sleepless nights ahead ;)

A friend of mine gave me this for free;




So, it is original C64 1541 floppy drive and around 100 floppies, work's perfect. I have always want to have floppy drive on my C64.



I have only tried Outrun and Giana Sisters, yet. There are a lots of awesome games, some newer ones too (from the beginning of the 90s) . Of course there is Commando and all the classics :)

And I still want to say that, C64 is classic gaming for me (or Amiga) not PS2 ;)

I can say the same about "Sinclair ZX Spectrum 48k" V :)
and Atari 2600 for console lol
I also had a 128k +3 with Amstrad floppy disk.... Horrid drives
If you want a good shoot em up , play " URIDIUM " and " SANXION "

I remember my C64 it was awesome, I had about 100+ games but could only play about 1/3 of them because of passwords! Damn it now I`m pissed. Well enjoy that sweet system!

Ah old 1541 , i had one to , load slow as snail , but i had tried quite lot of diferent turbo loaders until i find 2 realy great ones , that i have saved at begining of each game discs , which have considerebly speed up loading of all games (game loads 10x faster) .
I have also copied all my favorite games from tape to disc.After that , there was no more slow taoe loading and screwdriver setings for every tape . :lol:

C64 is class, congrats on the pick up varettaja.
I wanted one of those floppy drives so bad back in the day but they cost an arm and a leg.

I never grew up with c64 or Amiga, but i have discovered through emulation that those where 2 very good systems..I would love to get more into them.. I have tried Amiga more,but 6c4 is next on the list..Great Aquire V...

I feel like some people would rather "socially network" and potentially get the wrong answer slowly, rather than just use google and get the right answer immediately.
