 New website: K.C.’s C64 Projects 16:32
Because most of my current and past Commodore 64 related projects do not have an easy to find and permanent location at the net, I’ve put a new website online containing information about my projects.
Currently available projects:
* IntroBase64
* Intros Reorganizer
* GameBase64 Manual
* GBXfer

I’m still adding content to the website, so stay tuned for information about other projects!

 C64 16KB Cartridge Game Development Competition 13:25
At last more news on the C64 16KB Cartridge Game Development Competition:
Looks like the guys over at RGCD are back in action!

I got my hands on 5 different Commodore 64 SID revisions (6581 R2 R3 R4 R4AR and 8580 R5) so it seemed obvious that a comparison would be a good idea. So I did it.

Started with a track that has been composed on a 6581 SID, recorded it with all the 5 different chips and wrote a post about the procedure. Then I thought it would be fair to do the same thing with a 8580 track and record it through all 6581’s as well.

The result is a 3 part article with audio examples, waveform screenshots, some additional information and conclusion. Bring some cold beer, chips, etc. and follow these links:

I’ve chose nice demoscene music instead of well-known game soundtrack because these ones are great to listen to and also show serious sound design skills, sometimes I felt the SID was crying while producing the audio.
