... Yes, a great dream with potential --- I wonder how this could be best achieved by mod.
- tcpser module incorporated into the vice emulator firmware and internally ported to some kind of future tcpip output port.
- serial output accessible to the c64 software would be a good start. Modem BBS would require some kind of additional device with firmware to support an equivalent ATDT<url address> type command and handling.
- drivers to support a USB ethernet or wifi dongle at the embedded linux level would also be required.
I think that the C64 (Maxi) has plenty of potential and room inside for all sorts of add-ons, mods potentially, plus there are at least two USB ports on the circuit board that are not yet utilised. Potential?
One of the limitations with The C64 at the moment is that it has no way of communicating from within the C64 environment to the outside world by way of serial port or similar. It means that little or nothing can be interfaced at the moment (unlike a genuine C-64).
... and not so much a firmware update, but it would be nice if later production models correct the centred zero key, so that production units look more like pre-prod units and actual 64's. A small thing but I guess it depends how many keys have been pre-ordered/produced at once. Perhaps the replacement zero could be made available to existing owners to purchase as a replacement part for a small price???
Hi. New user FrankC64 here. Just got my Maxi on thursday. Another suggestion for a firmware update is support for all four disk drives. The feature is already there in VICE, so I suppose it must be very easy to add three more slots in the media selection section. This feature would really ease the workflow when you work with something like the Pascal 64 compiler, which requires you to switch disks several times, everytime you want to compile. /Frank Carvalho
I’m really enjoying TheC64, but a nice feature to add in a firmware update would be a cartridge freeze option like you have in vice. I mean by this if you have enabled a virtual cartridge like action replay or final cartridge iii, to simulate a button press on it, that would freeze the system.
I’d like to do some programming on TheC64, and would use this option for memory monitoring.
An option to monitor from the emulator itself would also be cool.
Anyways those are my two cents regarding wishes for new features.

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
