Re: What is the Pantone color code of a 128 case?

The RAL color system might give you a more correct color for plastic. Conversion is easy. Pantone is great for printed color but for powder coating and plastics, RAL is usually better.

Re: 64 empty cartridge cases

I have two cartridges of centipede for the C-64, one has a screw, but the other looks like this case with no screw. Of all the cartridges I have, that is the only one that looks like this sale. I don't know if either case is original, since neither of these cartridges has a label, but the PC board i...

Re: A different C-64 video tweak

I was a bit surprised at the response to this project. Most of those cheap Chinese scalers do not give a good display (if they work at all).
