  1. Hello Commandos, As you know the Mega 65 is another great project and based on Commodore's never-released C65 computer. Obviously the hardware is a bit different as it is FPGA-based, but I was curious, what do you prefer about the Commander X16 (chips aside) and its specifications and software, over the Mega 65's OS (if anything). What drew you here? Your friend in retro, Perifractic
  2. I was wondering about that. Looks good!
  3. I'm all done with that project for now but I'll keep it in mind if I revisit. [emoji106][emoji973]️
  4. No, because it was a joke, hence the wink faces [emoji6][emoji6] In all seriousness, leaving the mini keyboard out wouldn't make much of a change to the price. The bulk of the cost is in the X16 itself. But to be clear, we aren't giving granular options like that. The options will be clear and simple, which makes it easier for the consumer to choose and for us to logistically deliver items. These options are likely to be: X16P: Kit X16P: Pre-built (Both come with case and mini keyboard, no substitutions)
  5. David has said that he won't be doing a new version but he is coding Attack of the PETSCII Robots currently.
  6. Ok I've noted to leave it out of the box when we ship yours. [emoji6][emoji6]
  7. Wow that's a keyboard case AND a desktop case!
  8. Very cool! You know I loved this game and bought it for the C64 when I was about 12. (9:15)
  9. Correct. Where would you put the 4 expansion cards in a keyboard case? [emoji854]
  10. Well, as you know we have reasons for not doing that. But even if we wanted to, we couldn't fit the current motherboard in a keyboard case. It's more like an Apple ][. And you'd have nowhere to put the expansion cards. You know what a hassle that can be with the A500. Imagine having 4. I firmly believe having the keyboard separate instead of shackled to the rest of the computer is just much more convenient and desk friendly too. [emoji4] But never say never. IF (however unlikely) it did happen I'd guess it would be a phase 3 thing.
  11. Many thanks on both counts! Speccy is definitely my favourite render!
  12. Wow thank you so much! I hope you love ZZAP! 2021.
  13. Welcome! And check out our anime thread if you haven't. [emoji106][emoji973]️
  14. Thanks! Yep it's audio over HDMI. Amazon do sell HDMI to composite/audio converters though so that's an option. Enjoy!
