c64ize An Image!

Justin has coded a c64ize script which will convert an image in modern formats such as jpeg or gif into what an 8 bit Commodore 64 would display!
Ah yes, you had to be there…

I still don’t have a working camera but I do have a camera phone..


The C64 disk drive was called the 1541. When I saw this car in front of me I had to snap it!


The recent Sudan Red 1 scare made many more people aware of how our food stuffs are made from ingredients from all over the world! This was a sign outside Tesco in Douglas, Cork.

C64 Game Fans?

Damn, when someone visited by searching for Godian Tomb on Google I just had to go look for it myself.. and I found lots more too, even Mr Robot although something tells me it won’t hold quite the same attraction as it did over 10 years ago.
If only I could play it on a decent portable device! The keyboard on my 7650 is fairly knackered from playing Stunt Car Racer, oops! Can anyone suggest a pda with a good C64 emulator? Not as if I have the money for it, mind, but one can always dream eh?
Much Later… I’m just after trying out Gordian Tomb and the version on that site is one I know very well… I coded the “crack” intro on it! Wow, that must have been some 14 or more years ago! I wonder how they got that copy?

Edit on 09/12/2008. Bah. c64unlimited.net is gone. All links removed.

Cherry Blossom Girl – C64 rip off?

Has anyone else beside myself and Proinnsias noticed that the beginning of Cherry Blossom Girl by Air sound very like a famous C64 tune? I don’t think so, as even Google hasn’t been very helpful!

Ah.. no wonder, it’s the radio mix, not the album version. I am trying desperately to remember what C64 game it came from.. It’s on the tip of my tongue but just out of reach!
Any C64 fans care to help? Listen to the radio remix of the tune. The first 3-5 seconds or so sound very synthy with the ping, ping, ping sound.

C64 people and the good ol' days..

I’m stuck in work late, yet again, and plouging through a long list of things when I get an email titled, ‘remember me?’ from Andrew Fisher. Andrew was a member of the c64 demo group ‘Ozone’ that I formed with Ciaran Langford many a year ago.
I haven’t heard from Andrew in a long time so I took the opportunity to call him and we had a great chat catching up, and reminising about the ‘good ol’ days’ 🙂
Prompted by a visit to his homepage I searched for mention of the demo I worked on for Ozone and found it nestled away in a C64 demo archive. Thanks Andrew for submitting it there!

Nokia 7650 & emulators: c64 and Mame

I just found this guestbook with some tempting information about FrodoS60, a C64 emulator (the same as eFrodo?) for the Nokia 7650. It could be out within a month!

Ah! Nostalgia! I'm listening t …

Ah! Nostalgia! I’m listening to a remix of Zig Zag from RKO linked below. This featured on the very first issue of Zzap64 that I and my brother bought. Also check out Zybex linked from the first page above, it’s an excellent horizontal shoot-em-up that I spent hours on!
