I mean, for being one of the most well known in the classic computer genre... I just CAN'T seem to get my head around it. Like, at all. Like, I can't get WinVICE to boot a damn thing bad.
I've had 'em, played with the hardware, couldn't get much working there. Yes, I know how to do "Load "*",8,1". Hell, had a FastLoad cart with one once, which yes reduced loading, but still only got maybe 3 or 4 games working. Apart from Maniac Mansion - none were too exciting.
I thought maybe I'm missing something as I struggle with hardware. So I get WinVICE and some TOSEC images. No dice, I can't get any image to run past the cracktro. Grab some no-intro images - same thing. I'm not picking obscure games either:
Alternate Reality: The City
Last Ninja series
Mayhem in Monsterland...
I dunno. I've had no problem with real amigas or emulated ones. Same with the A8. I'm not a total noob to this stuff but the C64 stymies me at every turn. I have no vendetta against it, it looks like a great system. A great system that seems to refuse to run anything for me.
So... am I missing something or is this the "C64 experience"?
