So bit 5, checksum error. The checksum taken of the data does not match the byte from the header.


Forgive my ignorance, but what could have caused that? Tape flaw? Drive flaw?

What do ?LOAD ERRORs with tapes actually mean?

I'm using a PRG to WAV program to put my files on tape. They seem to load fine, but every LOAD ends with a ?LOAD ERROR. The program is fine. When it run, it seems to all be there. But the error is always there when loading is done. I have a clue: I stitched four programs together in one wave file, a...

eBay if you want a tape, and homepage if you want it for free. Happy Halloween!

Just some updates of previous works.

Re: VIC Game Club No. 7 – Game Theories

hey! THanks for playing! The difference is that 4 (the version on the front page of Denial) was a revisit to the old program. I decided to get rid of user graphics all together and got with the built in set.

Repair request

Is anyone near Chicago available for VIC repairs? I'm willing to mail systems too. If not, I think I'll need someone to talk me through some repairs. Both machines are starting to die. :(

"reinstall"? I would like to upgrade my file browser to the latest version. How are you doing this?

VIC 20 = Epoch Super Cassette Vision?

I'm constantly confusing Super Cassette Vision games for VIC 20 games because the font looks so similar. I'm wondering why it looks this way? https://i.ytimg.com/vi/bn25K795tBc/maxresdefault.jpg Check out this video of several games with attention to font. If it were not for the multicolor mode, I m...

Re: Composite Mod for Atari Pong

I just invested in a higher quality RF setup. I know these systems can be AV composite modded because someone on ebay (from Canada) sells them. I've seen various pong and , specifically, magnovox consoles for sell. I'm running out of room, so I decided to not get them. I figured out a properly shiel...

Re: VIC Game Club No. 2 – The Count

I was so hopelessly stuck on this one back in the day. When I finally solved it, I didn't know how to feel about the clever(?) twist. Still, I would say it's better than Adventure Land. Adventure Land was more like an intro to the genre.

The great thing about this platform is that one can wait until a project is fully realized. No one's in a hurry. No marketing concerns. Anyway, I look forward to seeing this.
