There’s nothing like booting up an old machine (as long as it does boot) especially if its been a while since it was last out of the box. Take my Commodore Plus/4 for example, which I’ve set up on the geek desk in anticipation of some weekend retro gaming, but no matter how often I see it, having some brand new software loaded on an old system makes me very happy.
March 2013 on a machine thats almost kicking 30 years. Feel the love!
Thanks to both my modded sd2iec and CBM Browser which now supports the C16 and Plus/4, computers I can now sample these goodies on the real hardware.
I played Norbert Kehrer’s Asteroids emulator on the C64 when it was released at the beginning of the month but I had no idea that there was an alleged faster version on the Plus/4.
It’s pretty impressive stuff indeed and well worth checking out – http://web.utanet.at/nkehrer/
Right, enough with the rock blasting, I’m off for a warm up session for this weekends challenge -Trying to finish Treasure Island?
