  1. You are correct although I am disappointed that it didn’t run on belt buckles. Perifractic, X16 Visual Designer http://youtube.com/perifractic
  2. Although the try it now button is still visible on mobile, it really isn’t designed to be used that way. If you think about it, you are emulating a computer that doesn’t yet exist, within an emulator built for desktop computers, running on a web browser, running in a cell phone window. We have to draw the line somewhere and how far we can support emulation and the try it now button. We could remove the button altogether but this would be an unnecessary crippling of a feature that can at least give you a little taster of a program or its start screen. Long story short, please keep expectations realistic and wait till you’re in front of a computer, to emulate the computer [emoji6] Perifractic, X16 Visual Designer http://youtube.com/perifractic
  3. Bonjour mon ami! Perifractic, X16 Visual Designer http://youtube.com/perifractic
  4. That looks great! But can you call it Flappy Chickenlips. Kthxbai. Perifractic, X16 Visual Designer http://youtube.com/perifractic
  5. They’ll be in touch hen-yway. Perifractic, X16 Visual Designer http://youtube.com/perifractic
  6. It’s an idea we talked about but unfortunately size is very limited in the ROM. We are struggling to even fit in a butterfly logo character. Although of course there are other ways… Perifractic, X16 Visual Designer http://youtube.com/perifractic
  7. Why we’re renaming the X16: Perifractic, X16 Visual Designer
  8. Wow that looks even better than I expected. You’re welcome! Perifractic, X16 Visual Designer http://youtube.com/perifractic
  9. The current thinking and state of play is that we will not offer a mouse in the package so we can keep the costs down. It’s not clear that the majority of users would use a mouse. If we do offer a mouse as an optional extra, it will be an unbranded white Perixx PS2 mouse that matches the case and keyboard shade of white. The middle wheel is not supported. Thanks.

  10. Funnily enough I’ve been chatting to a guy who has created some really cool keyboard overlays and is sending me some for Commodore 64 games et cetera. I’ll ping him to take a look at this thread. Perifractic, X16 Visual Designer http://youtube.com/perifractic
  11. You can find more info on the fonts here https://www.forum64.de/index.php?thread/68200-what-a-font-was-used-on-commodore-64c-and-128-keyboards/ Perifractic, X16 Visual Designer http://youtube.com/perifractic
  12. This is an unnecessarily critical and inaccurate comment, and isn’t the first time. It is not the tone we want for our forums. Please moderate your future comments before posting. I and others work extremely hard to keep the FAQ up to date and strongly dispute that “obsolete info is the norm around here”. In fact I do not believe there is one piece of obsolete info in the FAQ. And the FAQ is the single point that we send everyone to for the latest info. We are consistent about that. We cannot control somebody outside the core team mentioning to you something that they saw in a video by Kevin, and that person you chatted to labelling it an official announcement. Criticising a team who are working for free for not copying every thing that is said in a video into the already extensive FAQ is unreasonable. Michael is also not done with the new emulator version or the GitHub. You need to be more patient. The physical prototype will always be ahead of the GitHub. You also cite a wiki but as I have mentioned before, and as is clearly stated in the wiki itself, it is not official and we do not run the wiki. Would you prefer we have the fans who do run it take it down permanently if it does not meet your requirements? Finally please remember that this product has not even been released yet, nor have we taken a penny from anybody for it. We are offering unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to the development, which I don’t think has ever been done to this extent before even crowdfunding commences. Criticising us because we do not meet your high (and erroneous) standards will not be tolerated further. This thread has also run its course, with some unfriendly moments before today, so I hope everybody can just take a breath and perhaps move onto a different topic. Thank you for your understating.
  13. In addition I regret we don’t allow customisation of our design, sorry. Hopefully it won’t prove too hard to remember those functions the more you use them. Perifractic, X16 Visual Designer http://youtube.com/perifractic
  14. Okay we now have a bare keycap set available via http://commanderx16.com/deluxekeycaps Currently this is not customisable as we want to keep the design standard (rather than have caps with our logo turn into a sort of MySpace free for all ) and we probably won't advertise it outside of this thread, but feel free to share it wherever you wish. Hope it helps!
  15. Let me enquire with them and see if that’s a possibility. Perifractic, X16 Visual Designer http://youtube.com/perifractic
  16. Thanks guys. I’m looking for something a little more retro looking, perhaps a 70s vibe. I’ll keep searching eBay and thrift shops. Perifractic, X16 Visual Designer http://youtube.com/perifractic
  17. Yep that’s the problem I’ve had! But I’m sure one will turn up. Perifractic, X16 Visual Designer http://youtube.com/perifractic
  18. Beautiful! I’ve been looking for something similar for my repair workbench. The search continues… Perifractic, X16 Visual Designer http://youtube.com/perifractic
  19. We appreciate your excitement! Whilst providing the mini keyboard ahead of the final machine does seem like a good way to raise funds, it has been considered and my feeling is that it would add complexity down the road. We would have to accommodate far more requests for the main computer without the keyboard, which just adds another variable to an already somewhat complex process. No doubt mistakes would happen, people will get free keyboards who didn’t pay for them, people would pay for keyboards but not receive them, it’s just part of life. Keeping things as simple as possible is important. I also have concerns about launching half of a product, without the important part. I do not believe it gives the right impression, and no doubt some people would jump on it as an opportunity to criticise us for just wanting to raise money without releasing anything more than a fairly standard keyboard. But rest assured we are not that far away from more exciting announcements! [emoji106] Perifractic, X16 Visual Designer http://youtube.com/perifractic
  20. Sorry to hear that they dropped the ball on this. I’m sure they would send you a replacement with a correctly flashed firmware if you requested it. Perifractic, X16 Visual Designer http://youtube.com/perifractic
  21. Glad you’re excited! As per the rules please don’t ask for updates. We’ll announce things when ready [emoji106] Perifractic, X16 Visual Designer http://youtube.com/perifractic
  22. We definitely appreciate your enthusiasm but as per the FAQ and the rules, we cannot encourage clone machines at this time. It would therefore seem prudent to minimise discussion about them to avoid inadvertent rule breaks. Another moderator has already locked this thread but we can pick the discussion up in the future when phase 1 and 2 have been released. In the meantime please read the FAQ and follow the announcements forum for updates.
  23. Ah, okay that isn’t an official resource, just to be clear then. Perifractic, X16 Visual Designer http://youtube.com/perifractic
  24. What Wiki is that? Perifractic, X16 Visual Designer http://youtube.com/perifractic
  25. It’s all good. Thanks for clarifying. Looking forward to seeing your machine [emoji6] Perifractic, X16 Visual Designer http://youtube.com/perifractic
