zip2 BASIC 3.5 Extension HOT

BASIC 3.5 is an extension released by 64'er Magazine back the June 1990 Issue that allows running Commodore BASIC v3.5 programs on a Commodore 64.

While doing some searching on this extension, I ran across an interesting post on StackExchange that describes a couple ways to autoload/wedge you programs so they load the extension automatically and continue to run.  Here's a link for the curious.

zip4 BASIC Lightning v1.2 HOT

BASIC Lightning v1.2 by David Hunter is an extension to the CBM64's resident BASIC interpreter which adds over 150 commands.  The additional commands cover three main areas: structured programming, graphics and sound. One of BASIC LIGHTNING'S most powerful features is the ability to multi-task; up to five parts of a BASIC program can be run at once. A compiler for BASIC LIGHTNING will be available in early 1985 which will produce "stand-alone" compiled programs.

Inside the archive is the complete PDF manual.

d64 floppy5 BBC Basic II v0.23 HOT

Aztec Software produced a version of BBC BASIC for the Commodore 64 in the 1980s. It was written by Julian Gardner who wrote their Turbo Basic and Turbo Basic Compiler.  The released software seems very much an unfinished development demo.

zip6 Business BASIC 64

This one is a bit of a mystery.  I've found two references to Business BASIC on the net.  One is from the C64-Wiki that states this extension was by Kingsoft in 1985 and is also known as S'MORE Basic.  The other reference also by the C64-Wiki says "There is a module extension known as Business Basic for the C64 or the C64 Basic V3.5 implementation published in 64'er Magazin 6/90 to get BASIC 3.5 capabilities on a C64 hardware.".  I'm guessing this is the later, but since I can't read German you'll have to investigate this for yourself.

Drago BASIC v2.2 by Cross-Soft - One of our kind visitors shared some details about this BASIC extension that's geared towards 3D graphics animation.  Version 2.0 of this software was published in a special issue of a Polish magazine called Bajtek sometime in 1987-88.  Version 2.2 appears to be nearly the same, and accepts the same commands as that published in the magazine.

Here's a link to the magazine article.  Thanks Al!

Hires-Master v1.0 - This is a an extension to the Commodore 64 BASIC 2.0 that adds some graphics commands.  Originally I thought this came from a disk magazine called Commodisk, in particular issue #35, but that doesn't seem to be the case.  I don't have any information on this extension, but there is a demo program on the disk that you can examine to see some of the new commands.

zip19 Northcastle Stuctured BASIC v1.7

Northcastle Structured BASIC v1.7 by Mike Roche (June 1984) - This is very similar to Waterloo BASIC, in fact it will run most programs written for Waterloo. I found a nice article about this language in issue 23 of TPUG Magazine (May 1986).  Included on the disk is several versions that can be loaded into different parts of memory so it can co-exist with other utilities.  There is also instructions, source code (written in PAL assembler) and several sample programs.  I would consider this a complete package.

zip20 Pegasus Basic v4.0

Pegasus Basic v4.0 by Juli, 1989 - This is a really cool extension to BASIC. It's cool because it not only adds a bunch of graphics related commands, it also adds many utility type commands.  On top of that, it has some nice improvements to the basic editor. There are a half dozen sample programs included on the disk and an English translation of the manual (Blame me if there are any inaccuracies, I ran it through the DeepL translator, then went back and transposed some wording).

Big thank you to a couple of our visitors (BlueCursor & Markus), for pointing me in the direction of the source of this fine extension (and sharing an additional English translation of the manual), which is the February 1991 issue of Magic Disk 64.  Here is a link to a nice site that has all the Magic Disk textual content converted to HTML.

Ultrakit - A Programmer's Toolkit by Zach Townsend (Alpha Omega, 1986) - ULTRAKIT adds nearly 30 commands to the standard Commodore Basic, for use in developing your own  programs. It includes commands for debugging BASIC programs, for listing to the printer, for altering and checking blocks of memory, as well as a fully-fledged multicolour Character Editor and Designer.

This archive contains a .TAP file instead of a .D64.  I was unable to convert it using FinalTAP because it isn't a BASIC program and has a non-standard loader.  You can easily use this in CCS64 or the VICE emulator.  Thanks to Green_Bert over at the Lemon64 forum for sharing this and the manual.
