  1. Figured I should introduce myself again. Hi, for those who don't know me, I'm Yuki from beautiful Québec City, Canada, been a mod since the beginnings of this website back when Matt and Perifractic were managing it, but quietly disappeared took a break to focus on other things. Probably about time to make a come back, but I still probably won't post as much.

    I've been slightly more active behind the scenes and you've probably seen me lurking on Discord, though, (and probably still will be slightly more active there): I've been in touch with the new administration, took over the unofficial Discord server, and helped Tom and the gang take over that as well and make it official. Went pretty well so far.

    Anyway, can't wait to see the X16 finally reach production and put my hands and mess around on one of those 🙂

    The reference to Titor I remember being there. I don't recall the IBM 5150, doesn't mean it wasn't there, just that I don't recall it.

    I do recall seeing it in @Perifractic's video about it.

    But yeah, probably should watch it. Sounds like one of those shows that makes you think, and would probably makes sense if physics worked that way so a time travel device would work.

    Not sure if it fits here but I'd like to mention Steins;Gate.   There's a computer game (more a visual novel) and TV series of it.  It's about a group of students discovering a form of time travel, and I found it pretty interesting in the way it presented those concepts.

    Was about to say that as well. Haven't watched it but I did heard there's a lot of geeky stuff, like a reference to John Titor and the IBM 5150.

    Nice! I was about to ask if there were plans for a discord once some things got rolling. If the moderators here are on top of it, this will hold us over until an official one can be made.

    Yeah, I asked the team, and unfortunately, as I said, none of them are into Discord nor want to devote some time to it, so this is probably the closest you can get to an official one for the time being.

    The former admins there also didn't had time for it either, so seeing I already have some experience in Discord and the fact I'm a mod here, they left it to me and I took over 🙂

  5. Hey there, I just want to say there is an official unofficial X16 Discord server out there for those who use it. It's now owned by yours truly, so I guess it's now a bit more official, but as far as I know none of the official team are into Discord, so yeah. Of course, it's perfect for some real-time chat around the X16 and some quick help real-time chat might be better suited, but if you want to ask a question or for anything else, the forums might be better suited. Obviously, the same rules as in here goes there as well.

    So if you want to check it out, here's an invite link: https://discord.gg/nS2PqEC

    Have fun 🙂

  6. Hey there,

    So to answer your questions, from what I understand:

    - You shouldn't have problems not censoring other projects' names.
    - As far as I know, compatibility with the C64 isn't really a goal past the fact it has the same CPU and the same BASIC, but you should have a similar experience on the X16. It's just supposed to be a better C64, kinda like the C64 is a better PET.
    - The team has a licence from Cloanto to use, modify and adapt the original C64 ROM for the X16, so no lawsuit here. Hopefully.

    Hope this answers your questions 🙂

  7. The 2 use cases I could see with a 6502-based console are

    1. Hobbyists and education
    2. Cheap chinese clone consoles 

    In the first case, you'd want an original idea (handheld? lots of GPIO?), a community to build around your product and a good SDK for it, kinda like the X16, which is not an easy task. But in the end, you just do what you want, it's your product 🙂

    L'année dernière, ma famille a fait des recherches sur notres ancêtres. 
    Apparemment, noun avons habitée en Québec depuis 20 générations jusqu'à il y a 5 générations.
    Mais mon arrière-arrière-arrière-grand-père a déménagé de Québec à Michigan, donc aujoud'hui nouns habitons ici et parlerons l'anglais.

    Intéressant, beaucoup de Canadiens français ont immigré en Nouvelle-Angleterre depuis le début du 19e siècle en effet, dû à une pénurie de terre et d'ouvrage au Québec.

    J'ai trouvé plusieurs excellents tutos sur le web en anglais, mais je me demandais si quelqu'un en connaît un en français pour plus facilement replonger dedans.

    Désolé, je ne connais aucun tutoriel francophone du 6502.
    Si vous pouvez le trouver, mettez le lien ici!
    En le lisant/regardant, on peux peut-être apprendre le vocabulaire francaise relatif à la programmation.

    Je ne connais aucun tutorial de 6502 en français non plus, mais j'imagine que les manuels ont été traduits.

    L'X16 peut montrer les lettres commes "à,ç,ê,é" etc.
    Mais dans les années 1980, en PETSCII le C64 n'as pas pu les montrer.
    À l'époque, comment les francophones ont-ils géré cette situation?
    Y avait-il des cartouches spéciales pour gérer la langue français? Ou peut-être un puce de remplacement du ROM?

    J'imagine que la C64 était vendue surtout pour les jeux et vu que le français est quand même compréhensible sans accents c'était pas très nécessaire de modifier la ROM, mais il y avait quand même des traitements de texte qui supportaient les accents. C'était surtout les traitements de texte et les trucs du genre qui en avaient besoin, donc le support était plus par application.

  9. From experience, mechanical keyboards for keyboard enthusiasts goes upwards of C$100, and the keyboard on sale now is designed to be a deluxe keyboard, and the keyboard that would come with the X16 will be more low-cost. I guess it's the one that would give the team the most profit.

    Je viens du Québec... plus précisement de la couronne nord de la grande région de Montréal.

    Tiens, moi je viens de Québec 🙂

    Penses-tu qu'on pourrait avoir un sous forum francophone dans l'avenir si on devient assez nombreux?

    Peut-être, faudrait voir avec les admins.

    @MattGrandis @Perifractic what do you think about a French subforum? On one hand it could be nice to offer support in other languages (if one of the staff/mods speaks that language), and see programs written in French, for instance, but at the same time, not everyone understands French.

    Salut Doigt. Francophone d’où ? (J’ai vu le blason sur ton profil mais je ne voudrais pas dire de bêtises....fleur de lys et l'aigle ça m’évoquerait la Belgique... ou le Québec)

    On commence à avoir une grosse communauté francophone par ici 🙂

    I did heard of the C256, but opinions were kinda divisive from what I heard. Maybe too ambitious for what it is? But eh, kinda sad to see this abandoned.
