C64 Usefulness?

C64 Usefulness?

Post by Joseph Ros » Mon, 10 Nov 2003 02:50:28

I used to have a Commodore 64c, and have been wanting to have others without
C64 experience try the C64 emulators and their games. Am I just dreaming,
or is there something to share about emulation? If emulation might be
useful for such, whom might I entice to try the emulation, and how?

Another question: What projects are being created for the C64 and C128?

Well, let's just say "I could create a program..."

...but unfortunately, all my motivation has left me, and none of those
friendly dudes around here could tell me what to do in order to regain

Jason, you read? Already gotten up from the floor again :-) ?

Yo, Jason,

Er, actually I rather had a program that enabled you to convert MP3s
to SNES tunes in mind, working from D64s. It required a dual-CPU C64,
though, as that is so much faster I've always wondered why Commodore
didn't use two instead of one, anyway :-) .

It's sad, isn't it? I mean, with all those revolutionary ideas, but
nobody who'd support you to actually put them into code...

Make that a dual-CPU version, and maybe it would only take half the
memory. Er, or something like that :-) .

Asking myself if this was a tastless joke of yours or somebody else
who had been visiting this newsgroup or comp.sys.cbm to know even
their older running gags. Then I thought, hm, maybe it's PAP ("Posting
Absolute Profanities"), mainly because of the first paragraph. But he
wouldn't have spoken about creating/created projects/programs, and
besides that, there were no references to bad dreams or supernatural
encounters whatsoever.

Finally, the whole cruel truth hit me :-) .

First reaction after finally recodnizig this probably was for real
was "calling Dr Jo..." er, Brenner who I had just talked to about half
an hour before I've read this, but obviously, he was already off to
bed (it was in the middle of the night here in Germany), and knowing
yet another hot air blower was around again would have only given him
a nightmare, anyway. So I spent the next hours s *** ing, and
imagining how many people would probably refer to this posting during
the next days.

Beware: Da legend's back!
