Warning: C64 geek pr0n! A Mind Is Born

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/04/20

Geek pr0n on the C64:

Making a demo in just 256 bytes would be a formidable challenge regardless of platform. A Mind Is Born is my attempt to do it on the Commodore 64. In the absence of an actual 256-byte compo, it was submitted to the Oldskool 4K Intro compo at [WayBackRevision 2017, where it ended up on 1st place.

“Personal Computing on the VIC 20” manual is on-line, but prepared for a slow download.

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/08/16

From a while ago:

David Ratnasabapathy: The VIC-20 programmer’s manual was the best intro to programming I’ve ever read. I’d love to find a copy online, the new generation could use it.

+Isaac Kuo that book is wealth. I loved marginal explanations that expanded on the main text, it’s a tactic I use in my own class notes.

The manual was called Personal Computing on the VIC 20 and it is online! This is amazing! Ah, memories.

+Tomasz Machalski there’s a motherload here:

Jeroen Wiert Pluimers:+David Ratnasabapathy thanks a lot!

Downloaders: that site is slow. Not as slow as the New Horizons uplink, nor as slow as 1980s modems, but be prepared for some serious wait time.
