Re: C64 with 1 MB RAM

I think in extra RAM you could do all sorts of storage for page-flipping and what not, but it seems to me that color RAM is hard-coded in the C64, so regardless, that'd still be a bottleneck of sorts.

Re: 22k for a Commodore 65?

I would kind of like to go back in time to when I was about 15 or so and the ads for the C65 for $99 were out there, and order one. Could have made a nice little nest egg off it!

Re: Commodore w/Modern Monitor

There are a number of different composite/S-Video to VGA signal converters. I have one called Video Game Jockey by Startech.com ... it does the trick.

Re: beginners text adventure problem

Shaun... wouldn't all the concatenation of strings eat up memory from the top down and cause a lot of garbage collection too? (Maybe not as big a problem on the VIC because with less memory garbage collection would be going all the time...)

Re: beginners text adventure problem

There's no command 'else' in Commodore 64 Basic, which is part of the problem.

I'm still waiting for life to slow down a little, but I have started on the suggested reading list.

Re: Taipan with graphics.

Hi-res or bitmap? I'm not familiar enough with the original to help here, but sounds like a fun ideaa.
