Notes:

To enable REU support you can use either a filename flag or a CJM file parameter. Note that REU support does not work with VIC20 software.

To select using a filename flag, use one of the following:

R5 = 512K REU enabled
R2 = 2MB REU enabled
RM = 16MB REU enabled
For example:

myreudisk_R5.d64

See the user manual for further details on the use of filename flags.

To select with a CJM file, use one of the following parameters:
reu512 = 512K REU enabled
reu2048 = 2MB REU enabled
reu16384 = 16MB REU enabled
For example:

X:64,reu16384

See the user manual for further details on creating CJM files.

To switch the joystick in use between joystick port 1 or port 2 when running a C64 program, press and hold the joystick ☰ button, and then pressing joystick Ⓐ for port 1 or joystick Ⓑ for port 2. This will override the J1 filename flag or CJM primary port setting, if either are supplied.

To perform a soft or hard reset, or cartridge freeze on THEC64 Mini, you will need a compatible USB PC keyboard.

A soft reset may be performed by holding the left shift key and pressing F12 when in classic mode. This will usually leave most of the C64 memory in tact.

A hard reset is done by holding the left shift key and the Windows key and pressing F12 when in classic mode. This will reset the C64 memory.

A cartridge freeze is done by holding the right shift key pressing F12 when in classic mode. If you are running a suitable cartridge image, such as a Super Snapshot or Action Replay, it will instigate the inbuilt cartridge features whilst leaving the C64 memory in tact.
