Handic Forth 64 User's Guide & Reference Manual Category: Software ManualsNov-29-2021

C64-FORTH is a fourth-generation programming language that in many respects is very different from other lanquages. In relation to its size, its power is unequalled. In just 8K, a typical minicomputer FORTH version supplies structured, compact and extremely fast code, virtual memory, a resident macro assembler and a resident editor, as well as multitasking capability. FORTH is even able to extend itself and its compiler. It is a metalanguage.

C-Net 64 BBS v12.0 Manual Category: C-NetNov-29-2021

C-Net 64 version 12,0 is the result of many, many hours of careful programming in we feel, the finest BBS system available anywhere for the Commodore 64 computer. We consider this new version of the most popular C-64 BBS to be the LARGEST step in making C-Net 64 very efficient, easy to modify, (for the do-it-yourselfer), and fast! We plan, in future versions, to improve even more, but this version has been re-structured to make all these things not only possible, but simple! Both the basic portions of the program and the machine language have been carefully screened and changed for efficiency and speed.

Creating Chiptunes with Sid Wizard Category: Software ManualsNov-06-2021

Welcome to this revised expanded manual for the excellent music tracker SID-Wizard2 for Commodore 64. I will try to go into detail of most aspects of the tracker and I will also try to explain the functions of the wonderful SID chip as we go along. The reason why I expanded the work of Mihaly's manual is that there is some stuff left out that SID gurus know but beginners don't.

This guide covers SID Wizard versions up to 1.6 and is still helpful with 1.7 & 1.8, but version 1.8 has many changes compared to 1.6.

GeoPlayer v1.1 Category: SID PlayersOct-31-2021

GeoPlayer v1.1 by M.Angelini (geoRAM not GEOS) is a very cool utility designed to take advantage of the speed and capacity of the geoRAM RAM expansion and the various clones.  With geoPlayer, you can play back .WAV files, SID music and Koala pictures.  The ability to upload these files to geoRAM is also built into the program.  There are a few limitations, such as only 10 Koala pics, and SIDs can only load to address $1000, but still a cool tool, and hopefully future versions will overcome these limitations.
