    Should I buy the full size C64, or the Mini version? Any advice appreciated.

    I have the mini version as Smyths were selling it cheap a while back. It’s nice but the included stick is s h i t e. Apparently this has been updated with the full size model though. There’s a decent roster of games on it and it’s easy to add more but be careful to get games patched for controller port two. Or I suppose a USB hub would work. I have tried other USB controllers and had no joy with them.

    I had a look around and people are saying the full size version comes with a much better joystick, so I'll probably grab that sometime soon. The C64 is easily my favourite 8-bit computer alongside the MSX2.

    Far better getting the real thing, heard very mixed reports about the new one.

    What are the bad points people are reporting? Any problems with how the SID sounds? It would really put me off if the audio isn't spot on.

    Better waiting for the Mega65 - http://mega65.org/
    Between that and the Speccy Next it’s going to be a great year for retro micro updates.

    In other news, I finally released my Sinclair QL adventure game for free over Christmas. https://www.qlforum.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=3072

    it can be played on a pc using Qemulator etc. or a real QL/QL Compatible. The zip includes all the design documents, source code, box art, manual, all graphics and animated intro etc.

    I'm now starting on my next qame which is a dungeon crawler adventure.

    I bought the mini last year, its good but needs a hub. I was bought the new bigger C64 Joystick for Xmas, after a quick update I found it runs perfectly on the mini.

    My Mister FPGA setup also works great with it, makes the C64, ST and Amiga games feel very authentic.

    In summary, get a C64 but if you can stretch to the Mister setup then it does more and it does it better but doesn't look as good as a C64.
