Hi there,

I'm working with the Gamebase64 project to collect as much game software for the C64 as possible before we lose it all to faulty floppies, munched cassettes, recycled library books, and the dustbin of history.

Part of my work is to type-in (by manual or electronic means), games written for the C64 that were printed in books or magazines.
Some games were designed with the C64 in mind. Others have been ported from more "generic" MS BASIC programs.

Anyway, I could use some help doing this. I have a rather hefty collection of scanned game listings in JPEG and PDF format that I'd like to get into the C64 (or an emulator). Personally I use VICE on-screen with the listing in order to produce the programs, but sometimes (especially with the more generic BASIC programs), OCR scans, a text editor, and the TOK64 utility come in very handy.

If anyone here is bored one evening and would like to help out with the task, please shoot me off a mail at riobaan@hotmail.com and I can supply you with files of listings to work with.

Thanks Smiley
