My c64 history

I've been using these suckers for years, and will probably never get sick of them. I learnt BASIC and then 6502/6510 machine language on the c64, and still use my c64 (actually now a c128) system. I've built a power supply to run it off a car battery (12v dc) and still use it to connect to the internet or BBS's during power shortages. I've also built an interface box which I used to control model robots from the computer, which was fun for experimenting with robotics and controlling things with a micro.

Believe it or not, there are still an aweful lot of people out there who still use them, and there will probably continue to be for many years to come. I still think the commodore 64 is the most educational computer there ever was. The demoscene is very active and there are still commercial companies supporting the machine.

Some of you may know or remember me as the coder Strobe. I've been in demo groups such as Oregon, Warriors of the Wasteland & Lithium, and have released several demos such as Thunder and Steam with my partner in crime Witty (a.k.a Brad Wightman, formerly editor of the magazine 'Commodore Fever').

You can sometimes catch me on IRC channel #c-64 on ircnet, nickname 'Strobe', and/or on #vice-dev on freenode.

Plus/4 version of d64it 20/05/2012 - 12:44

Imre Széll from Hungary (aka 'siz') has ported d64it to the Plus/4.

You can find his port here - D64IT plus/4 - and the forum discussion of the port on the Plus/4 world forums here.

I've also mirrored the full zip file (source and Plus/4, c64 & c128 programs) here - d64it.zip or just the Plus/4 version itself - d64it_plus4.prg

d64it-vic released - d64it for the Vic20! 05/09/2009 - 22:26

I've recently done a vic20 version of d64it, so now you can extract d64's (or create them) natively on your trusty (rusty?) old vic 20! It needs a vic with 8k or more of expansion ram.

You can download d64it-vic here.
