Just wanted to share my latest powered hub for the 'The C64 Mini'. It's The '1541 Mini'. It's really only a UGREEN SuperSpeed, 5Gbps, 3-Port USB, Data Hub with a Memory Card Reader for SD TF Micro SD SDXC SDHC Micro SDXC Micro SDHC, Powered.
I have relocated two of the USB's to the back of the unit with the third occupied by my wireless keyboard fob (inside). The graphics were done using decal paper. The vent cut out was probably not required from a technical standpoint but I needed the plastic to make plugs for the screw holes in the case lid.
1x USB 3.0 Hub, UGREEN SuperSpeed 5Gbps 3-Port USB 3.0 Data Hub 1x 158 x 90 x 40mm Electronic ABS Plastic Junction Box (closest size match I could find) 1x USB cable as the original hub's cable is a little short. 2x USB breakout boards 1x short micro USB cable 1x micrio christmas lights as I could not source in a small enough number 2mm Green and Red LED's.
The front of the drive was chopped up parts of an old black keyboard. I had a combination of textured plastic and smooth so was able to select areas to cut out and form the floppy drive front.
This is the type of accessory I had hoped Retro Games would come up with in support of their C64 mini.
Now onto a working keyboard (something else I think that would sell well).
crispin: @zippy: hehehe, nice cover ("...C64 was sexy")! btw look at comments: "Pretty sure that lady is a dude "

deerwings: jont87 I have a .d81 version I've tried, but it's keyboard heavy and something is weird in that it's not responding to keys or joystick commands like it's supposed to. I'll figure it out at some point, however. I've been fiddling with it in Vice on the PC.

jont87: Hey all, has anyone tried playing Wasteland on the mini yet? It's got a load of disks, wondering how much of a hassle it is. Or if someone has a one-disk version or .crt that they've tried.
