USB cable for the 1541 and others

The ZoomFloppy has always been far too big for me. I had also started some projects in the past with the aim of bringing the whole thing down to a much smaller size.

Why leave out any external device at all and connect the floppy directly to the USB port?

Of course, this could just be an April Fool’s joke…

80 Column Card & Z80 CPU: What belongs together comes together

There are few programs for 80 column cards, and the CP/M cartridge makes no real sense without 80 characters. So what is more obvious than to combine both cards.

Tutorial for an external 8x Kernal module for the C64

There are always situations where you need a different kernel for your Commodore C64. Either to test something or because you don’t want to open the computer. And so I had the idea to build such a small plug-in card myself. And for a simple mdoul, it doesn’t even need many parts.

“It’s not a trick, it’s a…” – PSX64 adapter for C64 & Co.

“Oh no, not another joystick adapter” – I can already hear the prophecies of doom from the background. But this time it’s not about another USB joystick adapter for the PC, but about a joystick adapter for all home computers with a D-SUB9 interface, like it was found at Atari and Commodore. And for the Commodore there is even a game which supports this adapter. Because with this adapter you can use the gamepads from the Sony Playstation 2 on the mentioned homecomputers.
