Hey everyone! Did any of you play the game Sizzler by Psytronik? I got it and it's a fun, cool step in the right direction. It almost reminds me of a NES game, which is a good thing. I know you can't shoot in the game and you just duck and jump and hang from platforms, but it's a neat game. It appears to be influenced by Thing on a Spring, which comes with the C64 Mini. There is even a reference to the game as the spring character is seen in the background in Sizzler. For me I feel as though the game is too difficult, but I'll keep practicing and use videos for tips on how top play. So far I can't make much progress without using the savestate function. I also think the games Bonkey Kong and Dog are cute and fun. Also, the homebrews of Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Jr. are very impressive. Organism also looks cool! I see the C64 Mini as in some ways better than NES and in some ways worse. What do you think?
Well, I'll admit that my opinion is absolutely biased, but I much prefer my C64 and C64Mini to anything Nintendo produced. I just enjoy the extremely large and diverse catalog of the games and programs available for the C64 over what is available for other gaming consoles. On top of all of this, the Commodore provides a completely open canvas for software developers to create just about anything for it. I'm looking forward to the release of the full sized TheC64.
I haven't play Sizzler, but my most resent favorite game from Psytronik is Steel Ranger.

sdx2: Sound issues in Uridium, but not in the carousel main menu. Got any idea on why? Tried PAL/NTSC and 50/60Hz, always same result: www.youtube.com/watch?v=LBydccoO-08

Jet Set Willy: My Xbox 360 or Xbox One wired PC controllers don't work with TheC64 Maxi, only Logitech Rumblepad 2 works. I wonder if this will be fixed in firmware updates?

I'm Don . Having game troubles: I'm trying to play games in classic mode. I'm using dirmaster to load these games to a USB stick. Some play but others no joystick operation. Also , how do I change games that are in a weird graphics character mode, i.e. Manic Mansion and others?

Frank C64: Hi. I have another suggestion for a firmware update: Support for all four disk drives. Since it is already in VICE it should be a no-brainer to add. I would love that feature, as it would make it soooo much easier to work with my old Pascal 64 compiler.

spannernick: Shell: If you have THEC64 Maxi then use Classic Mode.

Shell: Is there an official way to swap disks for the TheC64? Other than folders and all that stuff? Tried to find solution but it's all old info...

pantera: Found the solution for getting Mindshadow two disk version to work, _ad needs to be put on the end of the filename and fast loading needs to be turned off. ie. MNDSHDW1_ad.D64 and MNDSHDW2_ad.D64

RubiconVale: Got my mini on Friday. Thanks for this community! So far everything has been working great.

pantera: Has anyone managed to get Mindshadow to run properly on TheC64 Maxi ? The single file version works, up to the point where you get off the island, then crashes. The two disk version will not load. The two disk version loads fine on CCS64
