For anyone who wants to set up the Commodore 64 Macro Assembler Development System on a USB stick for the New Commodore 64 (Retro Games, Ltd), I have added a short Appendix to my Quick Start Guide explaining the steps. I wrote the Guide in 2020 as a "love of the Commodore" effort and it is available on eBay. This is a "non-profit" effort, and the modest cost is only to cover the printing costs. The title on eBay is "Commodore 64 Assembly Language Programming Quick Start - Retro 2020 and THEC64". The description on eBay describes the contents in more detail!
I have received much interest in my Commodore 64 Guide, and have now printed a Second Edition with more details on running C64 Assembly Language on all three (3) "platforms"...e.g. 1) Original C64, 2) VICE 64 Emulator, and 3) the "THEC64" from Retro Games Ltd. The title on eBay is now "Commodore 64 Assembly Language - 2nd Edition-Quick Start - Retro 2020 and THEC64". The modest cost of $7.00 (US) is again only to cover printing costs, and this is indeed a "non-profit" effort. This is a good way to start understanding Assembly Language and its connection to 8-bit architecture. It is a nice introduction to RISC, CISC, and x86.
intex: Anybody know why you get a black screen with trying to do the firmware update for PCUAE? The firmware is detected, but as soon as I select APPLY, you just get a black screen. If I reboot the device, it goes back to the usual carousel (i.e. not bricked )
