d64 floppy.jpg 64 Turbodisk

This particular turbo disk loads into the 49152 memory area. I'm not positive, but I believe this was from a Compute! magazine many years ago. Lots of good stuff came from those old magazines!

d64 floppy.jpg Autoturbo v1.0

Autoturbo v1.0 was created by TWC.  This cool little program will take a program up to 186 blocks and add a 4 block turbo load routine onto the head of the program.  All you need to do is load "progran name",8,1.  Seems that v1.0 mainly works on uncompiled BASIC programs and v2.0 will have some further options.  Can't wait to locate v2.0!

zip.png Copy II 64 - Quickload NEW

Back in 1985 Central Point Software released a disk backup program called Copy II for the Commodore 64 that had some extra utilities for computer housekeeping chores.  One of those was a fast load program called Quickload.  The unusual thing about this fast loader is that it's a two file utility which probably made it unpopular for throwing on a disk full of games or whatever because others wouldn't be sure which file was the loader shim, although the file size probably makes it obvious to the more astute.

zip.png Exos 14x Turbo Loader

Exos 14x Turbo Loader is a small 10 block program that makes loading large programs a LOT faster! A couple of notes;  When doing a directory load, the program will automatically do a list when its finished loading the directory.  While loading a program it will blank the screen to squeeze out a little more performance.

Not much you can say about a fast loader, but if you looking for something to disassemble for ideas, here's another one to check out.

zip.png Fastboot V2 NEW

Fastboot v2 or Fastboot-51200 is a speed-up routine for the Commodore 1541 floppy drive that puts itself in memory at decimal location 51200 (sys 51200 to run after loading).  This can be handy if you have another program using the common 49152 location for something else.

zip.png Fastload 1987 NEW

Ran across this fast loader but not sure if it's anything unique.  I don't have any other fast loaders with the same name so I thought I'd publish it just for the heck of it.

zip.png Fastload TTN

Don't know much about this fast loader other than it was possible fixed by Ayatollah of Titan.  I'm just adding it to the collection for anyone that might be doing research and wants to pull it apart to see if it's someting unique.

zip.png Mach 10

Mach 10 is yet another fast loader for the Commodore 64.  This isn't really the most ideal because it requires two files and is kind of big, but I like collecting these type of programs so thought I'd throw it in the mix.

d64 floppy.jpg MK7 Fastloader

This is a pretty cool fastloader because when you load it, it immediately runs and pulls up a directory of the disk. All you have to do is cursor to the file you want to load and press enter.

d64 floppy.jpg Quickload 1581

Not as common as fastloaders for the 1541, Quickload 1581 is just that, a fast loader for the 1581 drive.

d64 floppy.jpg SJLoad

SJLOAD is a C64/C64DTV software fastloader. Its main difference from normal fastloaders is that it only works with Jiffy-enabled drives and uses the JiffyDOS protocol. This makes it handy for people who have a Jiffy-enabled drive (also new hardware such as SD2IEC) but do not want to make the hardware changes necessary for exchanging the C64 kernal.

SJLOAD speed is a bit higher than normal Jiffy since SJLOAD uses the same protocol but a different implementation (it disables the VICII during load etc.). With an SD2IEC, SJLOAD is about 15% faster than a normal Jiffy kernal. Note that SJLOAD does not feature the command wedge and function key shortcuts known from a Jiffy kernal.

SJLOAD is loosely based on VDOS (1986) by Edward Carroll. However, the fast loading routines have been replaced completely by 1570 (contact).
