NEWS AND UPDATES

» October 19th, 2017 - Five inlay scans added (again)
It's safe to say we love inlay scans! Here's another five carefully retouched inlays for you to enjoy: Classic Concentration, Harvey Headbanger, Harvey Smith Showjumper, The Master of Magic and Wacky Darts. The retouching process takes about 5-18 hours per inlay, sometimes longer. It all depends mostly on the condition of the inlay of course, but also if it was scanned properly. Let's say it's a good idea to clean the scanner glass before scanning and that you have a lot of disk to save the hires scans to. :)

» October 11th, 2017 - 7 new inlays feat. Dark Star by Mark J. Brady
The mighty forces at C64.COM is back to give you seven new inlay scans. Take a look at: Dark Star, It's a Knockout, License to Kill, Mychess II, President, Soldier One and Space Walk. For the love of Galway, enjoy!

» October 4th, 2017 - 9 new games added for your enjoyment
Why not try one of these titles today? BMX Trials, Carnage, Dark Star, It's a Knockout, Jeopardy!, License to Kill, Mychess II, Pro Tennis Tour and Space Walk. Get them here »

What we've learned through out the years is that it can be really hard to find a working copy of an early game without text alternations by the cracker in it. We love crack intros, but always try to find copies of games that's free from that. It just looks better and feels more 'pure'. Therefore, it's always great to be able to add games released by Nostalgia because they meet our criterias on all accounts.

We've also learned that smaller American titles like Jeopardy! (and more or less all other Sharedata titles) are hard to find working copies of. They're either very poorly cracked or what ever copies we can get our hands on simply don't work. In this copy of Jeopardy! there's a graphic bug on the high score screen, but it's the best copy we could find – and we looked really hard!

When looking for a working copy for Dark Star, more or less all cracks sucked. It's a really boring game, but we should probably load up the original and see how it loops, because it's the looping sequence where most crackers have failed. There's lots of graphic bugs and a lot of cracks crashed. In this version by Pugsy, there's a small graphic bug at the loop sequence, but in this case it looks more like poor programming.

The conclusion: We're very careful with what we add to C64.COM, and after all these years, there's no other C64 retro site that does it this way. All we ask from you in return is that you play these games and keep on celebrating them. That's not going to be too hard, right? :)

"Moleman 4: Longplay" is a great movie which recounts the little-known story of the beginnings of video game development behind the Iron Curtain. There are untold stories about games like The Last Ninja, Eureka! and Impossible Mission II, with company profiles on Andromeda Software and Novotrade.

» June 3rd, 2017 - Update to let you know we're not dead
It's been a while since we did an update to C64.COM and so here's one to let you know that we're still alive and kicking!

First up, Sean has retouched three more inlays for you: 4x4 Off-Road Racing, Batman the Movie and Outrun. Secondly, we've added the information on what games the talented and wonderful Donna Steiner-Buttlaire did graphics for. Thirdly, all the game screenshots have been updated with a new colour palette to try to match the original C64 colours better. The old palette has been with us for too long and it was time for a change. All the demo screenshots will be updated as well as soon as there's time.

Next week, Popeye will return with 10 more games for you to enjoy. Until then, have a great weekend!
