  1. That case is epic. I have the Super Nintendo version.
  2. Pre ordered mine a month ago, hoping it'll be here the same time as the C128 I just picked up on eBay. Making room next to my Breadbox C64 and Maximite for some new friends. Now if I can just talk someone better than me at cable organization into coming over to keep my desk from becoming spaghetti...
  3. A lot of monitors have speakers or headphone out as well so you could use the audio over HDMI as an option. That's why we do on our Retro Pi in the living room. Works well.
  4. Yeah love it. First thing I do when I get a new Pi is keyboard it. Be nice to have all in one.
  5. What are the current thoughts from the build team (overlords) on Hardware and ROM licensing? Don’t need specifics, just wondering if the plan is for them to be open or proprietary.
  6. Oops, missed this. Sure, when I'm back to the office next week.
  7. Yeah, I backed it anyway. I'd love to see a Commodore publication come out like the new Amiga Magazine. Makes me regret not holding on to my 500 (still have the 64 though). Now I'm in eBay hell trying to pick one up
  8. I have a love hate with Crowdfunding. Over the last 12 years of funding projects very few of the projects I've backed shipped without getting stuck in the mud for feature creep or underestimating what scaling up a product would look like. Remember the Pebble watch? Sigh, so disappointing. Anyway, this looks cool.
  9. Might be fun to put in a wireless game controller and tell people it's an alternate way to fly the plane...
  10. Got it setup in less than a minute. Works great.
  11. Perfect, I switched to KickAss a month ago for C64 and love it. I’ll give your extension a go. Thanks for publishing it!
  12. I looked at that a while ago. Maybe I'm looking for an excuse to NEED an X16 for this
  13. I've built Ben's kit. It looks really cool glued to some foam board and hung on the wall!
  14. I've been building a Zenith 750 Cruzer for a couple years now. I'm in what's commonly referred to among home builders as the 80% done, 80% to go stage. I've had this idea to put a 6502 in the plane panel SOMEWHERE. Maybe not doing anything terribly important, just for fun. I've been thinking a 5 inch screen that does a cool startup animation, and displays a couple non critical readouts like outside air temperature and flight time. My dilemma is what to use. I'm not gutting a REAL C64 for this, although that's what I have the most Assembly experience in. My current ideas are: A 64 Clone Emulator on a Raspberry Pi Commander X16 Custom 6502 board with an LED matrix I'm also currently very distracted by my Color Maximite 2 which is FANTASTIC. If I could just wave a wand, I'd probably just go with the Commander X16. I think it maintains the spirit of what I want here while giving me the flexibility to do a lot more with it. It might depend on the timing. The plane will likely be finished in late winter and I'll need to allocate the space for something by then. I'd also love to hear any crazy ideas for software that might be cool to see. The screen will be on the passenger(co pilot) side. It could be just for fun, or maybe something a little more serious. As an experimental aircraft, I can put anything I want in the panel. I'll do something conservative and well tested for primary displays like Dynon or Garmin, but anything else is an open book. If you're interested, I have a somewhat updated build log of the plane. https://myzenith750.com My "other" airplane is the somewhat famous "Tiger Baron". That's a certified airplane, so can't do custom panel additions there. The story behind the Baron is here (along with pictures, it's a pretty nutso paint job) Michael
