Re: [Ebay] Just another Mt. Drash :)

There's Ultima collectors, and then there's sealed game collectors. They are on another world really. You can't 100% fabricate the game afaik because there's no public TAP. The only way it could be done is if someone already with the game dumps a copy to be rewritten. This auction demonstrates WHY t...

Re: [Ebay] Just another Mt. Drash :)

(New in Factory Sealed Box? I don't see any cellophane) The top flap of Sierra boxes are glued down, there was no cellophane afaik. Admittedly hard to tell if RESEALED unless you open her up again and have a careful check of the flap to see any previous damage. He does have a couple of tapes not in...

Re: VIC Game Club No. 11 – Paddle Games

If you mean the game per se, it is paddle only anyhow. If you mean in emulation, then Alt Q I think makes your mouse act like a paddle in VICE.

Re: Vic20 Vixen Switchable 16k RAM Expansion Repair

The thing with Vixen is, there's only two binary switches, so that's why the memory options are 0, 3, 8 and 16. You'd need to sacrifice one of those options to allow for 24k or 35k in there.

Re: Vic Computing Magazine?

To be honest, I was aiming to scan that issue if I had won it, because it was missing online. If you do fancy letting it go, let me know :) I don't tend to keep hard copies of many magazines nowadays either, but VIC Computing was only 12 issues, so what's the harm? ;)

Re: Vic20 Vixen Switchable 16k RAM Expansion Repair

I own the Vixen myself, still works great, very good back in the day memory expansion, in lieu of modern equivalents such as Megacart or Penultimate Expansion. As you could have 0k, 3k, 8k and 16k all off the same setup. May try to open mine to compare and spot if anything is amiss heh.

Re: New physical cartridge release: Cheese And Onion

Yeah, I was thinking about pre-ordering and indeed, out of stock :( so, does that mean enough stock to go ahead, and more yellow cases? ;)

Re: VIC-1903 Rally-X Cartridge for Sale or Trade

There won't be a natural PAL version because the game was only released in Japan.

Re: Just got a VIC20, now what? :)

Yeah, one you can use for 3K, 8K and 16K, that covers pretty much all commercial software from back in the day.

Re: Trying to play Key Quest.

It may still want the RAM at block 5 (as it's an $A000 cart, I should know, I dumped it!), and you can't do that with the Vixen, I own one myself. Game was only released on cart afaik. Do you have a Commodore expansion? You can open her up, some of them have dips for setting which block(s) get the m...
