A C16 Video Guide of the Princess C64SD

December 8, 2014

Posted by Baz

In these 2 videos, I will be demonstrating some of the capabilities of the Princess C64SD device.

In the first video, I will take a little look at the new SD2IEC itself, and will show you how to load files on the C16 and C64, including .TAP files.

In this second video, I demonstrate how to rip the data from original tape cassettes converting them into .tap images for use with the C64SD or similar SD2IEC devices and emulators such as YAPE. I will also demonstrate how to copy a .tap image back onto a blank cassette.

For more information on the Princess C64SD including purchasing info, please visit their main website: www.manosoft.it

Dirty Den – Review

October 21, 2014

Posted by Baz

Title: Dirty Den
Programmer: Vakis Paraskeva
Publisher: Probe Software
Year: 1986
Language: English

Download or Play Online


Review by Baz

Q: What do you get if you cross a vintage platform game with a once popular British TV soap villian?
A: Plagiarism.

Why Vakis way back in 1986 decided to title the game and main character after the then current original Queen Vic pub landlord in fictitious drama Eastenders remains a mystery. There’s absolutely no resemblance between the two whatsoever that he may as well had named him Ronald McDonald although Probe Software really would have had a lawsuit on their hands.

SD2IEC Games Collection

September 23, 2014

Posted by Baz

A little while back, one of our members who calls himself StarshipUK posted an interesting yet undeservedly quickly forgotten thread on our forum which you can read here.

He linked us to his own personal project where he had gathered up all the C16/Plus4 games and then specially formatted them alphabetically to work flawlessly with the SD2IEC device.

Unfortunately his site and link is now long since dead. Fortunately, I have found a copy on my hard-drive and re-uploaded it here, which you may download on the link below.
