Another C64FC run

2017
15
March

At last another batch of PCBs have arrived, and this time they're yellow. Not quite the lemon-ish tint I expected, but I suppose the shade is a tad retro and may complement the C64 well. I have PCBs and parts for 10 boards in total, four of them have been reserved already. This means I have 6 left - interested? Read on.


This will probably be the last run I do on the C64FC boards.

Price? I guess 25 euros per board is as cheap as it gets. There's no markup for me, and most parts have been sourced from China's shadiest back alleys. If you would rather have a blank PCB and get the parts and do the soldering yourself, you can have one for 3 euros a piece. Shipping not included.

Be warned that the current software only runs on Mac OS X and Linux. This means that if you are a Windows user you'll have to be creative.

If you're interested, let me know in the comments and we will get in touch.

EDIT: SOLD OUT. That went faster than expected. Those of you who have expressed interest will be notified shortly. To protect your privacy, the comments left here will not be visible.

  • Gabriel: hang in there, C64FC mkII is in the works... :-)

  • Any chance that you will support 1MB and some persistent storage (Flash/EEPROM) like is available on many other platforms, but seemingly not on the C64? For comparison, please check out the following (all of which support at least 512KB of RAM/ROM and data storage on Flash or EEPROM or SD card):

  • I ask about support for 1MB bankswitched cartridge memory and persistent save data storage support because I am currently developing an RPG for all of those other platforms, and would like to port it to C64, as well. Since I am using similar style cartridges on all other platforms, it would make it much easier to support the C64 if it had one, too. Otherwise I won't have the bandwidth to support the C64 (I won't be supporting floppies, either real or virtual, just for it).
