zip0 Blue Chip Word Processor

Blue Chip Word Processor by Visiontronics and Professional Software, Inc. Designed by Jacques Lebrun (1984) - This is the word processor that accompanied the Blue Chip D12/10 daisy wheel printer.  It's a fairly capable application, supporting 40, 80 or 120 columns. Thank you Thomas Shaw for sharing this!

zip1 C64 Miniword v2.5

C64 Miniword v2.5 by Bo Zimmerman (The Zacman! ?? Is that Bo's handle?) - In my hunt for the Mirage Word Processor, I stumbled on Bo's github page where I found this neat little word processor.  Since there wasn't an actual compiled release of the program, I imported the project into CBMPrg Studio, assembled the ML part, then Blitzed the BASIC part and put all the necessary files into a D64 disk image.  Complete docs are in both the masterfile (mw_docs.txt) and also on the D64 that can be loaded into Miniword.  Miniword uses .prg files for storage, so you will want to load the file "2.5docs.mw".

The Github page and source files can be found HERE!

zip4 Easy Working Writer v1.02

Easy Working Writer v1.02 by Spinnaker (1987)

Easy Working Writer is an easy-to-use program containing both a word processor and a spelling checker. A word processor is like a typewriter with expanded capabilities. Use it to write a document, such as a letter, a paper, or a report, just as though you were using a typewriter. But, unlike a typewriter, you can edit and format your document easily and without retyping. With a word processor, once you type the first draft, you only need to type in corrections and additions to your text-you never need to retype the entire document. Formatting, too, is a simple matter-with a single command, you can change from single spacing to double spacing , center a title, boldface a heading, or place a foreign word in italics.

The built-in Spelling Checker helps you find and replace misspelled words before you print your document.

Here's a link to the manual.

Easy Working Writer v2.00 (Spinnaker) - This version is in .nib format instead of .d64 becuase it has copy protection in tact still.  WinVICE 3.1 works fine with .nib images, so I assume all newer versions will also.

zip10 Home Word Processor

Here's a simple but effective text editor for the Commodore 64 from the Starter Kit disk by the NorthWest group of California.  Although it's calling itself a "Word Processor", it's really a line based text editor.  That aside though, it does the job, and supports load/save from disk or tape, and printing among other things.  If you just need something simple to edit a .SEQ file, this might be one to check out.

This archive includes the full NorthWest Starter Kit.  There are some other utilities / programs you might find useful on it.

zip11 HomeWord

HomeWord by Sierra-Online (1983) - This is a neat word processor that came early in the Commodore 64's existence but had the neat feature of being able to see a live preview of the documents layout as it would be when printed out even though you only had 40 columns for editing.  I haven't been able to find any documentation for this rare find.  In fact, it's so rare that there isn't even a cracked version of this that I could find.  That said, let me tell you a bit about what's in this archive.  So there is both a .g64 and .d64 disk image, and both of them have some mild copy protection still in tact.  The odd thing about the .d64 image is that it will work in VICE, and on the Ultimate II+ with Firmware 3.9, but won't work on an Ultimate 64 with Firmware 3.10, hence the .g64 image which I created by putting the .d64 on the Ultimate II+ and using Shotgun II nibbler to create a real floppy, then using Nib copy on a PC with a XUM1541 with parralel adapter to read back the floppy into a .g64 which the Ultimate 64 is ok with.

Thanks to DLH over at the Bombjack site, we now have some documentation!  Although the manual is for HomeWord Plus, I'm sure most of it applies to this version also

Interword is a Commodore 64 assembly language port of an Amiga word processor.  The software was written in 1992 on a commission from Interactivision, a software company based in Silkeborg, Denmark.

Not that many people care, but this program works really nice with the Blue Chip d12/10 printer for the Commodore 64.   Here's a YouTube video and the Author Martin Olsen has added some nice commentary.

WRITE NOW! 64 (1983) by Computer:Applications Inc (Distributed by CARDCO, Inc.).  Described by the manual as follows:

WRITE NOW! was designed to provide you with an easy to use inexpensive word processor that provides the most desired features of an expensive word processor while being simple to learn and efficient to use. WRITE NOW! is written completely in machine language to eliminate the slowness found in some word processors. WRITE NOW! also uses screen oriented editing so it does not require the cumbersome editing modes required by other word processors.

As far as I know, the program was only officially distributed in cartridge form, but a group called ABA-Soft created a disk version.  This archive contains both a .CRT and .D64 if the program.  The .CRT version was pulled from a ROMset found here on archive.org, and the .D64 version was found here on csdb.dk. The manual for WRITE NOW! 64 can be found here.
