Santa plz... (C64 Mini)
« on: 2017-Oct-04 »
by me one of these...

Seriously though, I know it's really just made up from a RaspPI+VICE emu or something similar but the games look good as does that joystick (looks like a Quickshot Competition Pro?).

It's all retro based consoles that do it, include Nintendo, that became the popular one. While Ataribox look like it's somewhere ouya 2.... However Ataribox would suit perfectly with glbasic. I'm take a look when possible.

The different here is all games and concept is fully licensed...... Etc it's no gray market.

But yes, it's does look good m. But I'm will wait through (even I'm a much bigger c64 fan that spectrum, personally). And yes, it's a quick shot joystick which was popular in its time.

I m do guess some of the Arcade port is impossible to get a license of. So they are not in the list.

Yeah, the competition pro was pretty much the go to joystick of the day. It was built like a tank, it had to be as it was the number one victim of rage quits.

I just hope that games can be side loaded onto this but I’m unsure if it’s feasible as the keyboard is there only for show, it doesn’t actually work. This is probably the biggest limiter for the choice of games. Still, it does take an external keyboard, so who knows?

its depend on the licens they can get. Property they could not do get Ocean License. Ocean did many arcade & movie licens, which is a nogo (they require to get a license to the movie its self as well), but they did some originals as well.

THere is also a 3d print, that can do case modding to a C64 case, which can been swapped to work with a Raspberry Pi. With a quite device, the keyboard its self would even works with it.

But acteully its not a bad selection of games really with the licens they have got.
