Polyplay & Pixelwizard

Bought two cases, SX style, from Pixelwizard, now waiting for my Ultimate 64 board.

And from polyplay i bought some empty boxes to store the C64(c) collection safely. To use with the labelwriter. Better solution than the commodore stacking I was used to do…

Moderner 3-fach/6-fach Kernelumschalter als Bausatz zum Selbstlöten

  • Umschaltung der Kernels erfolgt elegant über die F-Tasten des C64 => Gehäuse bleibt unbeschädigt: kein Löcherbohren für mechanische Schalter nötig
  • universell verwendbar in C64 I & C64 C/II => Modell wird von der Schaltung automatisch erkannt
  • Intelligente Features:
    • Bei Reset/Rechner-Neustart steht das zuletzt gewählte Kernel zur Verfügung
    • Soft-Reset über Restore-Taste
    • Verbessertes Run Stop/Restore-Ansprechverhalten
  • Plug & Play: Lötfreie Montage (bei gesockeltem Kernel-IC), das originale Kernel-IC wird gegen den Umschalter ausgetauscht

  • Für den Sofortstart ist bereits ein (E)PROM mit 3 Betriebssystemen enthalten:
    • Bank 1: Originales C64-Kernel

Nice 1701, a Commodore monitor cover included

Including two boxes of software (sold voor 30 euro), a 1988 PC game on 5 1/4 disk (King’s Quest IV, sold for 30 euro) and a C64 needing some tlc and a working 1541 drive. So, I guess the very nice 1701 have costs around 50 euro after selling of the commodore.

Nice.

1541-II boxed

Februari 2019

These blue boxed 1541-II drives were primarily sold in France…but this one is with UK and Dutch manuals. It might be sold overhere in Holland as well, who knows! So included in the collection. Pick up with a working C64c (early model, with the older breadbin assy). Forgot what i paid for this one. The C64c will be on auction again.

Web-IT

Februari 2019

Well, if you are collecting C64…should this ugly babe get access to the collection or not? Since I’ve got a C64 mini as well, than the Web-it should have it’s (or some sort of) place in the collection, With thanks to Marco.

Lucky, nice set with hard to find extra’s

Februari 2019

I was lucky a few days ago: a full boxed set was offered with to extra boxes with books and hardware goodies. Contacted Harry Jan from Boxmeer after offering 60 euro, and to my surprise he agreed on the price. Well, ok! Drove up to Boxmeer to pick up the lot, including a lot of boxes with software.

Besides the boxed 1352 mouse, boxed 1541-II drive and boxed 64c, which are all in working order (and will definetly make up for the 60 euro’s spend) the following was included:

  • Turbo-corder, one of the many low priced datarecorders on the German market.
  • Magic Disk 64, German disk magazin, about 15, quit a lot not opened at all.
  • LCN Logo cartridge and manual, Dutch Logo User Group from Nijmegen (you can find some info on LCN in Commodore Info Year 3 Number 2, 1986).
  • Geo-ram, boxed and complete with manuals from Rex. It’s clone/copy of the Berkeley Softworks, released by Rex Datentechnik (nr. 1674).
  • Rushware Numeric Keypad for the C64.
  • Conrad Relais Karte for the Commodore 64, Rex Datentechnik Userport Protector (9622) and Printer Screen Module (9823) and eh…an userport extender?
  • Final Cartridge 3 with manual, the German manual, so I will keep this one. Trying to get all the international manuals 🙂
  • Turbo Computer Lightpen, Userport resetschalter, Disk Notcher, joystick, joystick cable extender, Disk Drive Head Cleaning set, Conrad DCF-77 receiver.
  • Batteries Included Printer Interface, boxed with manuals.
  • Simon’s Basic, with a Conrad manual. Seems that Conrad Electronics sold them in Germany.

And a lot….a lot of floppy’s with software…
