I've long since gotten rid of the commodore 64 and the dual disk drive, but I still have Ultima 1 -4. Those are the games that got me addicted to computers.

I used to play sim city classic on it all the time.

Sort of - although I never had a "real" C-64, I did and still do have the portable version:



Behold, the majesty that is the SX-64!

Hmmm. I think I need to go play some Impossible Mission! "Kill him my robots!"

I still have my Commodore 64 monitors. I have one hooked up to each DVR, I use them like PIP. These damn monitors last forever. They've been on roughly 6 to 8 hours a day for the last 6(ish) years. Not too bad for 20 year old monitors.

The precursor to the ZX-81, which was then licensed by Timex here in the United States and sold as the TS-1000.

I found mine while cleaning out my mothers basement last summer.

I took it to the range...
Link Posted: 8/3/2005 5:04:29 AM EDT
Yes I have two and am using one now with my 300 Baud modem. It has taken me 2 days just to load this page

Actually they sit in a box somewhere with the modem, dot matrix printer, cassette, and 5 1/2 drive.


Anyone still have the original 'PONG' game?

Link Posted: 8/3/2005 5:04:58 AM EDT
Anyone still play Rogue? That was the hook that got me in years back, and I keep a port on whatever computer I call mine. Still never got the Amulet of Yendor though.

Wow that is going back. My first 'PC' was a Sinclair ZX-81, I still had all the copies of their magazine till last year when my parents cleaned out their attic.

$150 and came with a whopping 1K of RAM.

My dad brought that home while I was in grade school. I learned to program in BASIC on it. He wrote a program to manage his stock trading side business.

If you wanted to access the 60K floppy drive, you had to type in instructions opening ports, loading files, etc.

There wasn't much software for it. A lame space invaders was all it could do. There was a pretty cool flight sim, but it was all text. You'd put in your control change, it would give you a new position, attitude, etc., as a result in numbers.

Was it for the C64? Never heard of it.



The original came out for unix on a mainframe, but ports were made for every OS going. I originally ran into it on an 8086.

I still have mine tucked away in some garage somewhere. I remember ZORK, that was a cool game. talk about letting your imagination free. Test drive was pretty cool.

Actually some SlOT Car tracks still use them for their timing controls.

C-64 and Atari 2600 in the garage.

I heard a retro 2600 will be available this Christmas!

Another SX-64 owner here... had one when I was a kid, picked up one a few years ago off of Ebay for nostalgia.
