Re: VIC Game Club No. 9 – Arcade Racers

I liked Road Race as a kid, especially the graphics for the instrumentation and driving with gears.

Re: BasEdit.NET

You are better off using mono directly to run .net applications in Linux. You need to install specific packages for visual basic support in mono.

Re: In the making: Arukanoido – an Arkanoid clone

Tried the latest demo. Very nice, but there was a bug. On first track, I got multiple balls, but maybe I just saw two. When all balls were lost the game just continued so I couldn't continue. Maybe two balls were traveling at exactly the same position or something. I resetted reloaded and played aga...

Re: Complete VICE Newbie needs help

When buying SD2IEC here, you can choose to take power from the user port instead of the tape port, and it will work with the plus/4 as well: https://www.thefuturewas8bit.com/index.php/shop/commodore.html I guess that would be the best for most people anyway. There are plenty of tape drives around, b...

Re: My 2-prong DC PSU experiments

Thanks for all the interesting info in this thread! I tried a 9v AC 30 watts transformer to get my 2 prong Vic working but was not satisfied with the result on my old Vic. The screen showes dark horizontal parts on the screen. These dark parts slowly move in a vertical direction. Found this thread ...

Re: In the making: Arukanoido – an Arkanoid clone

I think selling the game probably would be a copyright issue as it's so close to the original. There is no way to patent a game idea, but the graphics, patterns/tracks and music is most likely the property of Taito.

Re: A peculiar behaviour

The basic interpreter stores variables at the end of the basic memory I think. When using chr$, a temporary variable is probably made and stored there by the interpreter. Try to change chr$(147) to another value and you will see. Works exactly the same on the c64.

Re: WTB - 2 prong power supply in the UK.

See here: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=7995

9V DC 3A works well for me as long as you connect it well to the vic's power input. (Crocodile clamps are not enough). And I have a lot of pheripials connected to the vic-20.

Re: My 2-prong DC PSU experiments

I just measured the userport 5v on a vic20cr with a c128 psu (with adapted connector). It was 4.87 v, just as on the non-cr vic-20.
