Actually, I still have my Commodore 64, 1541 drive and printer sitting in the corner. I plug it in every once in a while when I need a good laugh. Loderunner kicked butt!
The firing order of the pistons in a small-block Chevy.
Ah, the memories.
Sure I remember. I think I still have one that works.
sorry, i had to bring this thread back:
I remember some kind of Gamecracker cartridge that broke copy protection so you could back up all your games to floppy disks without the protection.
Anyone else spend late nights programming in the games that came in magazines like Compute! and Antic? Basically all the DATA values got POKEd into RAM so you could program ASeMbly games using the BASIC interpreter (which was written by MS).
i used to do that as a kid, my grandma was the librarian for the local public school and they gave her an apple IIe and a bunch of programs and a whole pile of papers that have those BASIC codes on them to make games...I was all over those!
TRSDOS & BASIC for me. At the time I WORKED for IBM but still could not afford an IBM PC.
I remember my TRaSh-80 days as well. Surprised how many TRaSh-DOS commands are available in MS-DOS.
I'm still eagerly awaiting my shipment of Microsoft Visual Logo 1.0.
I wish to drag and drop my hide turtle, show turtle commands.
I think all those guys sharing the same code.
Oh yes. And I also got a schematic diagram for a voice synthesizer from one of those magazines. It used a Radio Shack phoneme generator chip. I laid out and etched the circuit board in the bathtub, assembled all the components into a plastic project box, and plugged it into the peripheral connector on the back of the console. And it worked! You made it speak by "poking" different values into a particular memory address. Creating a loop that continually poked a string of different values caused it to form words and sentences.
The C-64 was my second machine; my first one was a TI-99/4A.
