I use it, i do the game setup in the Maxi Game Tool, but copy the game files in X-Windows mod instead of flashing. Working great this way, havent tried flashing Game Tool games so cant comment about that.
How is it with official updates, I had popcorn's games on my THEC64 Mini and updated it v1.4.2 and it had a black screen, had to put the original games back for it to work..?
The firmware you can't hold alot of games only 150, and if it low on space and you update that when it mess it up, I had 150 games on it, cause RGL updates now add there own games too, you will probably will never be able to update it unless you put the original games back.
I don't use THEC64 Maxi Game Tool any more I use PCU Game Manager... and its going to be removed from PCU soon.
How doyou exactly copy the files and which folder would it be from the games tool?
Hello everyone, I am really new to all of this so please forgive me because I have no doubt what I am about to ask has already been covered. I have downloaded The C64 Maxi Tool. I keep getting stuck on the artwork links. When I try to add a game I get an error message stating "filexxx is not a valid PNG format". Is there a simple convertor I can use to dump my cover images in? This is driving mad Thank you for your help.
You use PCUAE with PCUAE Manager, it can scape the games so no need to add your own pngs no more.

codingandthings: Granted TheC64 joystick out of the box isn’t the best. I did some non destructive mods and it’s now my ‘go to’ stick for everything, TheC64, PC gaming, my own programs, the lot!

Kees: Where are the two DB9 ports on the C64 "maxi"? And a simple joystick mapping menu.... really....

Kees: It's ridiculous and absurd! First they provide a joystick wich is absolutly horrible and simply mechanically as good as defect. Not up for the task. Then you have to spent hours and hours editing files and with cryptic ID's, to make retro joys working

wkr: I have a problem with the autoboot, for whatever reason it does not read the pendrive. It starts with the original carousel and although the pendrive icon appears below, I can choose it and it tells me that it can't read it. What could have happened?

thebricker: Just bricked my Maxi today. Have I got this right? If I use the steps from here, I end up with fw 1.30!?, Can I apply the official fw-update afterwards, or are there any additional steps required?
