Sorry for getting off-topic (the C64 is considered grossly off-topic at Denial) but this my adaption of Mike's program: 10 fort=679to731:reada:poket,a:next:sys679 15 data120,169,5,141,24,212,169,0,141,0,212,141,5,212,169,37,141,1 20 data212,169,240,141,6,212,169,203,141,20,3,169,2,141,21,3,88,96 25 ...

Yes, that is "Vicball", number two on my priority list. Well, like priority lists have any relevance.

Well, I am ready to accept being wrong. I find meta discussions about who is right and who is wrong has little to do with both the VIC-20 and the content on the Denial forum, but since we have no more suitable place to keep those discussions, me or another moderator can shuffle those remaining two t...

I would like to add I just felt like a somewhat pissed moderator. Thus I moved all three threads from General to Off-Topic, since neither really has anything to do with the VIC-20. Actually I'm unsure where topics about the Denial forum and how it works belong. To me it seems General is not really a...

Hm, isn't Small Packet your only choice? I can't recall how much the DC3 weighs, but according to the postage calculator it should be somewhere between $4 and $9. Since it is a collector's item, the bidder should be able to handle an uncertainity of $5.

It should also be pointed out some magazines like COMPUTE! encoded all cursor controls and graphic characters, so to a great deal you could OCR one of those listings and tokenize it using the tool. For listings that came directly from the printer and are full of graphic characters, you are of course...

I see there has been a number of Vectrex limited edition releases lately. I think none of those has exceeded 50 copies, and the number of potential Vectrex collectors seems about equal to the number of VIC-20 collectors. It depends on how much labor and how many tapes/disks/cartridges you want to sp...

Cursor controls are encoded like {5 DOWN}, {HOME} etc. PETSCII graphics are encoded like {C-A}. Shifted letters are second nature. Actually there are a few alternative programs, like Bastok, Tok64 (?) and so on but most of those probably are no longer supported. Then again you have programs like Sch...

I was just about to suggest something similar. I understand those 1540/41/51/71 internal power supplies are not adjustable to different input voltages?

Typing "petcat -?" will give you the syntax. For typical unexpanded VIC-20 use, I would do as follows: 1. Prepend the text file with the following line, which defines the load address: program.prg ==1001== 2. petcat -w2 -o program.prg -- program.txt Since the VIC-20 relinks programs, step ...

The cable ral-clan refers to is a X1531 cable.

Another approach is the recently developed DC2N which is a device that takes a memory card full of TAP files and plays back those as if they were real tapes.
