Color 64 BBS v8.0 Manual (Revised and Reformatted) Category: Software Manuals [C64]04-04-24

Michael “Nuke” Newkirk reached out to me this week to let me know he has something special to share with all you Color 64 sysops out there - a revised and reformatted manual for the Color 64 v8.0 BBS!  I'm sure you'll appreciate the time and effort that went into this project, thanks Mike for keeping the Commodore 64 BBS dream alive. 

Here is an excerpt from the foreword of this revised manual.  I highly encourage taking a few minutes to read it, because if you were ever a sysop, you will completely relate:

"This document is a capture of the last Color 64 v8.0 txt that is widely available on the internet. I wanted to reformat it and make it an easier table-driven reference as much as possible for my own personal use, and the idea grew to make this something more with distribution to the interested communities in mind. I tried to keep to the author’s original personality and content, but invoked many grammatic changes and some technical that I felt would better serve the new generation of SYSOPs coming in."

Thanks Mike (Nuke)!

Manual updated 4/8/2024 - Some minor tweaks and corrections - See page 160 for editor's notes on CMD HD usage.

The Fun Graphics Machine v6 Reference Manual Category: Software Manuals [C64]04-04-24

Welcome to the FUN GRAPHICS MACHINE v.6. This new version of the FGH has been in the making for several years and is a l!!s!.l.Q.I. update over earlier versions of FGH. It includes many new features to make it
faster, smoother, friendlier, and more powerful. FGH has been well tested by some very ruthless and fearless beta testers.

This one program will let you use your COMMODORE 64 to do things that those with Amigas, Apples and IBM's can't do as quickly or easily. Show off your C641 Labels (any size!) should be a snap after you do a
couple, and the higher powered systems are unlikely to do any better. Host computer systems are rendered pretty equal by their printers, just as a good sound system is no better than the speakers.

They were not only simple to operate and understand, but friendly and approachable for new users.

Disky Business Category: Multi Function Tools03-04-24

Disky Business by Jeff Holbrook is a pretty simple set of utility functions for dealing with basic floppy disk tasks on a Commodore 64 with a 1541 floppy drive.  A couple features I like about this program are that it works with drives other than just device #8 and that it has the ability to move a file on the disk into the first position for using load "*",8,1.  The program has many other abilities which you can see in the screenshots.

Decision Maker Category: Miscellaneous Applications03-03-24

Decision Maker by Triptych (1984) is a complete learning and applications course based upon the theory of Decision Analysis and Decision Trees. Your purchase consists of three elements:

1) The Text Book which you are now reading. Please bear in mind that you will be using it continuously ih conjunction with the computer, and therefore it has been designed to stand upright in the box lid so
that you can refer to it more easily.

2) The Teaching Program, which will be used to give you a full undérstanding of the concepts of Decision Analysis.

3) The Applications Program, which you will be able to use to solve your own decision analysis problems.

You will find that the Teaching Program is not a simple tutorial on how to use the Applications Program. Once you gain an understanding of the material, you will be able to use decision analysis to solve problems with or without your computer.

If you think that you already have a sound grasp of the principles of decision analysis, then you may wish to try out the Applications Program immediately. If so, simply turn the book around, and find Chapter 12.
There you will discover the detailed instructions for solving your own decision problems.

** Thank you M.M. for the program and manual.

SuperKey Manual Category: Software Manuals [C64]02-28-24

SuperKey is a utility program for the Commodore 64 computer that allows you to redefine up to 96 keys on your keyboard. You can redefine some or all of the keys, and add, change or delete any of the definitions
at any time. The keys that you can redefine are the graphics characters that are accessed by pressing and holding either the SHIFT or Commodore keys prior to pressing one of the graphics keys. Throughout the remainder of this manual the SHIFT and Commodore keys will be abbreviated SH and C=, respectively.

Thanks to Anthony for providing this documentation.  Although it's a scan of a photo copy, so far it's the only manual I've ever seen for this software and it's much appreciated.

Note - If anyone has this utility, I would love to add it to the site.

Kwik-Load Manual Category: Software Manuals [C64]02-27-24

KWIK-LOAD! is a software utility program for the Commodore 64 or Executive 64 computer. It speeds up the way the disk drive reads information on a 5 1/4" floppy diskette. It will work with one or two Commodore 1541 disk drives. KWIK-COPY, a second program on the diskette, uses simple screen menus to guide you through otherwise complicated procedures. With KWIK-LOAD! and KWIK-COPY you can:

  • Load programs and data more than 300% faster;
  • Copy diskettes more than 300% faster;
  • Test your disk drive for proper operating speed;
  • Edit information on a diskette directly by track and sector;
  • Display and write diskette directory information in alphabetical order; and
  • Perform DOS (Disk Operating System) operations: format and validate disks, scratch and rename files.

Thanks to Anthony for providing this manual.  It's a bit rough because it's a scan of a photocopy, but I haven't seen it anywhere else on the net, so it's much appreciated.

Thanks to Bruce Thomas for finding and transcribing this hidden treasure that probably went unnoticed by most that owned the CD, into a PDF document for all to enjoy.

TermX Category: Miscellaneous Terminal Programs01-28-24

TermX by Stephen E. Masters (January 1984) - This C64 BASIC program is not a full terminal program, but rather something custom coded for uploading and downloading from something the author describes in the docs as the "TSP or CMS on the UM computer system".  There is some pretty good documentation included in the archive.  Here is an excerpt from the docs:

TERMX is a terminal emulation program for the Commodore-64. It will work on TSO or CMS on the UM computer system. Some of its features include:

1. File upload and download from CMS using CMS execs and programs.
2. "Bell code" recognition.
3. Multiple line feeds after each line are suppressed.
4. Carrier tone recognition and initial response.

Thanks DLH for sharing.
