Nerd for all things Commodore. Re-animator of dead C64s. I also dabble in 8 to 16-bit video game consoles, vintage typewriters, and fountain pens too!

should send it over to me, and I’ll add a keyboard and serial port back onto the board for him. I’ll have to carve a few holes in the case too, no big deal right? You’ll own the first C64GS > C64C conversion mod! :)

I’ve heard that story too before but I have no idea if its true or not. It makes perfect sense that Commodore reworked unsold C64GS boards back into C64C computers, but I have no way of proving it..

I think they were thinking, “We’ve got all these C64C boards in a warehouse right now, so how do we turn them into a product people will buy? Oh right! Lets build a less capable cartridge only C64!” Innovation at its finest, LOL

It’s just missing a few components is all. :)

The beige looks nice. I think it would look better with chocolate brown D-pad and buttons though. :)

Solid copper! Don’t need much, just enough to keep the aging silicon a little cooler. :)

The difference in quality between Kalex and OCP is basically non-existent however. Both are perfectly acceptable quality PCBs and I wouldn’t mind having either one as otherwise they are perfectly identical for all practical purposes...

Sure, the boards actually will say Kalex or OCP somewhere on them. I believe there were a few other manufacturers Commodore used (usually Hong Kong based) at different points, but didn’t put their logos on the boards.

Welcome to the club! :) This one is PAL, which is even harder to find than the NTSC version in my experience...

Different PCB manufacturer. Jan’s was made by a company called Kalex in Hong Kong. They are still in business making PCBs today actually...

I put that on one of the disks I sent you right? If I did, it’s because WOTEF is one of my top classics from my childhood as well. My number 1 top SID tune of my youth is from Mastertronic’s “The Human Race” and is a Rob Hubbard classic. Games not the best, but man that music!

I found the tune I had stuck in my head from Way of the exploding fist! - I swear I recorded this on a cassette and listen to it on a Walkman 😂
