I like the look of the first one - what do all those extra dials do?

isn't it you
Yeah it's me. I can be proud of my own (hideous) work though can't I?

I know some people get emotional about C64s being remodelled so I am trying to limit my own exposure to personal attacks. ;)

Maybe so, but someone obviously likes it - £89 bid so far and still 7 days to go.

I have to say, I'd quite like a C64 with those capabilities, though the livery's not really my taste ...

Amazing... I'd have prefered black or white over orange. Can this run some of the newish expanded Commodore shoot-em-up games I've heard about and is there a disk drive built in or something, oh and where can I get one???

Edit... sorry I just clicked on the link :oops:

I love these (esp the C64 zero) and the hard work that has been poured into them. Looks like it's really paid off, if I had lots of money I'd love to buy one.

There's only one new shoot 'em up that requires an expanded machine, that's Protovision's Metal Dust and no, these mods don't add the extra hardware required for it. There is however a project on the go to emulate in hardware what Metal Dust requires using the 1541 Ultimate.
