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.

RTC Master 128 Docs Category: Software Manuals [C64]02-28-24

RTC Master 128 Docs - Our friendly neighborhood sleuth,  Colt45, did some digging and uncovered some documentation that was hidden in a .PRG file.  Turns out it was just a .SEQ file that had been renamed. 

If you're curious about RTC Master 128, you can grab it HERE.

Thanks Colt45 for all your help!

P.S. - It is suspected that this program was used with the online service GEnie, can anyone confirm?

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.

Activision's Commodore 64 15-Pack Docs & History Category: Game Manuals [C64]02-17-24

Activision's Commodore 64 15-Pack Docs & History (that's just what I'm calling it) is a compilation of the "help" files included with the 1995 release of the game cd for Windows 95 called "Activision's Commodore 64 15 Pack".  In this archive you'll find 68 pages of compiled documentation, help, history and interviews that were contained in the help files on the CD-ROM.

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.

Commodore Store Demos Category: Demos02-17-24

I was going through some disks DLH over at Bombjack sent me, and I found this disk that appears to be something Commodore perhaps supplied to retail stores to demo the features of the Commodore 64.  I love the part of the demo that "projects" their popularity.

Multiterm 128 v2.0 by Stephen Thompson (1986) - This is one of the earliest versions of this 40/80 column terminal program for the Commodore 128 that I've found as of 1/28/2024.  Thanks to DLH for sharing the collection this was found among.  If you're looking for the newest version, I believe it's Multiterm 128 v3.7 that can be found here.

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.

D64 Disk Image Data Visualizer Category: Amiga Software01-26-24

Although this isn't an actual download, I think it's so cool that I want to share it with everyone!  Here is an excerpt from the size that explains what this handy online tool can do:

Simply pick one of the disk colors above (Heatmap is selected by default), drag a D64 image from your computer to the webpage, and drop it. After a second or two, a visualization of your D64 will appear on the screen.

You can also find this and many other handy links at a new website I'm working on - https://commodore.bookmark.computer

 

Datalock Protection Dongle Documentation Category: Hardware Manuals [C64]01-26-24

Datalock security keys are small plastic devices which plug into the joystick port. The program you want to protect is made to read the unique circuit inside the key. If the correct key is not present, the program will not work.

C64 Themepack for Windows Category: Miscellaneous PC Stuff01-25-24

Commodore 64 Themepack for Windows by Philippe Majerus - This retro themepack was shared by Philippe over at the Commodore 64/128 Facebook group today, and it's pretty darn cool!  There are 156 loading / title screens from C64 games, as well as a C64 style mouse pointer, sounds and color schemes.  I particullary like the sounds and pointer.

Decision Maker Category: Miscellaneous Applications01-19-24

Decision Maker by Creative Software - Although there isn't any identifying marks, like an opening screen or credits in the code, I believe based on comparing the program and the manual that this is the Creative Software version.  I wouldn't go making any career choices based on your results from the program, but it is kind of fun to play around with.

Thanks goes to one of our visitor, M.M. for finding this item I had on my wanted list!

Ultra-Com BBS v1.3 Category: Miscellaenous BBS Programs01-15-24

Ultra-Com BBS v1.3 (Also known as UCBBS) by Pudwerx (Released 1990) - From the little research I've done, my guess is that this is a heavily modded / improved Ivory BBS.  There is a small program on the disk that goes over the BBS features both from the user's perspective and the sysops. 

Thanks to DLH over at Bombjack for providing the disk.

Code 128DG Category: Miscellaneous Applications01-09-24

Code 128DG might sound like a program for the Commodore 128, but it isn't.  Instead, Code 128 was named after a high-density linear barcode which also gives a hint to what this program does; creates barcodes!  Although a bit of a novelty, it's pretty neat to type in a couple words (on your Commodore 64) and have a hi-res graphic of the barcode appear.  A nice extra feature of the program is that you can define the width of the barcode to accomodate for using a CRT to try and read back the barcode from.

This program was downloaded over at https://commodoreserver.com and was created and published by the user dgeoffri on January 23rd, 2019.
