     Now we have 2 more videos on-line!  Saj Awan had a mini-presentation showing what he had on his exhibit tables -- PETpix 2, Koalamin, and the Incredible Musical Keyboard -- all running on the Commodore 64.  Matt Brewster spoke about the MiST FPGA box and showed it running Amiga emulation.  See

     Another long-lost video released at the August 10-11 Commodore Vegas Expo... it is scener Peter Hanson visiting Amiga, Inc. headquarters back in 2001. Just a few minutes long, this video also has the late Gary Peake and in the distance, the Amiga bus!

     Posted last night, here is the first from August 10-11 Commodore Vegas Expo v15.  Premiering at the show, it is long-lost video from 2001 of engineer Jeri Ellsworth talking about the CommodoreOne and scener Peter Hanson talking about the European C= scene, especially about the Plus/4.  It was filmed at an UPCHUG (University Place Commodore Home User Group) meeting in the public library in Tacoma, Washington.

Happy Labor Day, C= and Ami aficionados!

The Fresno Commodore User Group has its next meeting from 11 a.m. to 2:00+ p.m., Sunday, August 25, at

  Panera Bread Restaurant
  3590 W Shaw Ave. (corner of W. Shaw Ave. and Marty Ave.)
  Fresno, CA 93711
  (559) 271-0104
  http://www.dickestel.com/meet_loc.htm

Note that the meeting is on August 25, not our regular third Sunday on August 18.

The Commodore Vegas Expo v15 (CommVEx) is over!  Expect a full show report -- exhibit-wise, financial, and observations!

Also, expect some fresh videos taken at the show, for example, the PETpix 2.1 which is streaming .MP4 video of any length into the C64 and Koalamin (think of the musical instrument Theramin except for the C64)!

If I can handle it, the Amiga 2000 Video Toaster comes to the meeting, complete with 3 video monitors (hey, the car is already packed with them).  For the C64, we'll have the new Super Duper Blaster game and the steering controller for the Street Defender program and the VR64 glasses.  For the VIC-20, we'll try out the new-from-Australia VIC-2066 cartridge which provides up to 35K memory and a built-in SD2IEC drive.  Watch out VIC-20 Doom!

           Truly,

Hi, Robert. In reality, the forums exist at https://retro-link.com/smf. If you go to forum.retro-link.com, there is no certificate, and you may get weird errors in your browser as you navigate. However, if you stick with https://retro-link.com/smf, you shouldn't experience those problems. Hopefully I will one day have the time to perform a successful upgrade and migration of the forums to eliminate all issues.

     I've been in Vegas for a few days now, preparing items for CommVEx.  Set-up time begins tomorrow Friday at 2 p.m. in the third floor Desert Wind Salon of the Plaza Hotel.  Set-up continues until we are done!

     The Commodore Vegas Expo v15 is getting near!  August 9 is our set-up day, and August 10-11 we have the show from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.  $25 whether you stay one day or both days.  It's in the Desert Wind Salon (next to the Bingo room!), third floor, of the Plaza Hotel, 1 Main Street, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.  Have an early look at the room --

      After 15 years of shows, this year's CommVEx takes an retrospective look with never-before-seen videos of engineer Jeri Ellsworth, scener Peter Hanson, vendor Jim Scabery, and CBM engineer Dave Haynie.  But we also have live presentations and exhibits from Matt Brewster, Mario Luppi, and more!
      We have a PET 2001-8, Commodore 128, SX-64, and VIC-20 system in the raffle, and we have items such as Strikelink wi-fi modems for sale.  Naturally, each CommVEx attendee will get freebies at the door and have a chance to win door prizes!

Sometimes there would be a blank screen, sometimes just black.
     At a SCCAN meeting, it was discovered that a bad s-video cable was the cause.
     I have been using the Ultimate 64, showing it off at club meetings, the Commodore Los Angeles Super Show, Bay Area Maker Faire, and the Pacific Commodore Expo.  And I have been satisfied with it.
     However, at our last FCUG meeting a few weekends ago, I had trouble with it.  I ran the new C64 games, Crystal Caverns, Death Weapon, Run Demon Run, Super Goatron, Stercore XD, Super Galax-I-Birds, Royal Hunt, and Robots Rumble.  No sound came from any of the games!  I checked my settings in the U64 menus.  Nothing had been changed...
still using the internal UltiSIDs, still in PAL mode, still using HDMI.  I cross-checked with a regular C64 and Commodore CRT monitor; the games' sound worked perfectly.  The club members and I were stumped for awhile; we couldn't figure out what was wrong.  I thought perhaps the HDMI cable had gone bad or that the external speakers
connected to the monitor had gone bad.
      Then we tried playing some SID tunes through the U64.  It worked!  But still nothing with the new games.  Finally, one member suggested that I go back to the older 1.18 firmware, instead of using the new 1.21 firmware.  I reflashed the board, and older firmware solved all the sound problems!  Now I had sounds coming through the games.  Now I could relax and show off the U64 at CommVEx.

     At this month's SCCAN meeting, Bogdan gave away another, mint Tandy 102 with leatherette case.  I gladly accepted it, because it will replace the Tandy 100 that I had "lost."  It looks good next to the Tandy portable disk drive.
