Good cross-compiler for Mac?
I found CC65 but it seems you have to compile it yourself. Anyone seen a binary install anywhere? Or a different cross compiler that can create C64 and VIC-20 binaries? ... 18 Oct 2009 12:44
Stereo SID, any software?
I was just playing around with VICE and realized it offers a Dual SID capability.. then I started wondering if there is anything that actually uses this. I found the old Stereo SID Player from 1988 and played a few songs. Truth is, they may have had 6 voices but I've heard plenty more impressive tunes on a regula... 18 Oct 2009 08:23

ReSID and digitized audio
Hi Guys, I'm a great fan of the ReSIDfp engine and I use it with great pleasure under VICE (Linux compiled from sources by me).

Ideally, I'd like to have each 8x8 cell have its own foreground and background col... 25 Oct 2009 01:16

Hello, I am curious was the "genlock" the main tool used during the 80s to edit VHS video? I can't seem to find any other hardware that allows VHS video to be input for an 8-bit type computer. I notice there were a lot of "video titler" software programs made for the Commodore on 5.25" disk, but they never seem... 24 Sep 2009 14:59
