From the Author
Many of the questions that have been posed to me over the years at the C64 site I run have been from people who remember an old program, peripheral, or game and would like to know how they can enjoy it once again. Each chapter is written with that sort of person in mind, but with something for C64 veterans as well, especially those who haven't spent much time outside of their own niche interest (the C64 music remixer who knows little about the games she remixes).
Accessibility is key. I offer tips on getting specific programs running smoothly in emulation and point out any anticipated hiccups (say, for example, if the game only runs in NTSC mode and your emulator defaults to PAL).
I've written game and product reviews in a way that I hope will be of interest even to veterans. Tips and tricks for gameplay, advice, and interviews with personalities in the C64 community were written for consumption by old and new fans alike. I also hope that you'll enjoy my personal insight and stories!
