Re: Commodore 64

Hi For better Video output I would suggest a Lumafix which sits under the VIC II chip which increases the sharpness of the picture quality alot. The other tip is to get a S Video Cable if your monitor can handle S Video signal. Most common issue in my experience has been ram failure or logic chip fa...

Plus 3 ADFS paged at 1D00. Electron MMFS Pages at 1900. Although I think some of the guys are trying to update the MMFS rom to page to E00 which would save having to load the ESWMFFS every cold boot :-)
