No New Posts THEC64 Games With CJM Files for Loader/ Classic Mode

This is for Games that are for the File Loader or Classic Mode and has a CJM file with them.
CJM Stands for Commodore Joystick Manager file, they work the same way as the .TSG(The Sixty four Game File)files for THECarousel), it's so you can customise the Joystick for Port 1 or 2 and if it needs certain keys or buttons to work with THEC64 Joystick Like space Bar can be added as Fire 2 on thec64 Joystick, then you don't need to use the virtual keyboard or use the USB Keyboard or THEC64 MAXi's keyboard to press the Space Bar.

No New Posts Games For THEC64 (C64 Mode)(Mini or Maxi)

You can post C64 games for THEC64 - C64 Mode here now, post VIC-20 games in there own board now for VIC20 Mode below this one.

Any games for the Carousel post them in the new PCUAE Section and do not flash any games to the Carousel on the firmware, you could make it stop working if you add to many games to it or could damage it.

Always use PCUAE if you want to add games to the Carousel, its safer and you can then always update your machine with no problem.
