C64 – A Legend

At the beginning of the 80s there was only one topic for me: Computers. The hit was the Atari VCS system. But slowly the first real home computers came up: ZX81, ZX Spectrum, C64. I didn’t really register the VC 20.

When I had the C64 at home, the time of programming had come. With its sprites, hires graphics and sound it became a cult and a legend: The best selling home computer in the world.

For 4 years I programmed and composed music with the C64, burned Eproms and dialed into mailboxes via modem. Then I switched to the Amiga 500 and made music with the Amiga.

The last few years I have done something with the C64 every now and then, and last but not least also planned a bigger project, for which I needed an emulated C64 environment. But it turned out that the emulation was not good enough. That’s why I did something new in the last 6 months, that’s culminated in the Android App: C64 – A legend . A better Emulator with a very simple graphical User Interface.

         

This is a fresh start from what I already planned last year: A C64 Multiplayer Universe. But in a different way. Most people smiled and don’t see the point. That has been with me my whole life. But just as often the critics took off their hats, what I did with my ideas. And it will be the same this time, too. Promised.
