Best Psytronik Game?

I was fascinated to see real C64 disk and tape games being made today. I want to buy one just like the old days! What's everyone's favorite? Hard to find ratings for these obviously.

Re: Tau Ceti crashes on SD2IEC

Confirmed, all the versions out there seem to require PAL. Maybe a physical disk of the NTSC version is needed to create the first NTSC .dsk file.

Recommendation for atmospheric haunted castle graphic text adventure

Hi all, I loved playing Dracula. I have a hankering for another text adventure (only) along the same lines, with some static graphics, that's equally atmospheric and absorbing.

Any recommendations?

Thanks!!

Re: Tau Ceti crashes on SD2IEC

Of course, just wanted to do it on the real machine that's all.

Re: Tau Ceti crashes on SD2IEC

I do have an NTSC machine. Is there any way round the issue, like a poke or hack?

Re: Tau Ceti crashes on SD2IEC

Could it be a fault in my machine? I do occasionally see some garbled text on screen in general in programs or BASIC, which seemed to be relieved by removing the joystick from its port.

That's the only thing that I think is up with my hardware.

Can anyone test on the SD2IEC?

Tau Ceti crashes on SD2IEC

Hi, I've tried 5 different D64 and PRG variants, but each time Tau Ceti loads, it freezes after 5 seconds.

Any ideas?Image

Thanks!!

Ok thanks. New cable on the way! (I love that people still make them...)
