When in doubt, go American first.




















*smaked in back of head*
"Shut up Jedi and all your Pro-American rhetoric!!"



Just kidding.

No, that sounds JUST LIKE something I'd do, 'cause I've done plenty just like it. I've spent half my life in line at the return counter after getting something I should have checked more carefully to see if it was the right one.

Heck, I bought the Tron game before I even thought to see if it would round a corner in the house to make it into the room I planned to put it in. I was sweating bullets 'til it thankfully made it okay. I dunno what I'd have done if it didn't.



Hey, did you concider if it'd be easier to get your hands on a UK game console and convert the power? I know you had a hard time getting the game, maybe this would be an easier goal than ridding yourself of it and resuming the daugnting task of finding that elusive American one. You think? Depending on how much Gorf means to you. Plus, you'd be able to get ANY game from then on no longer worrying about which nationality of any future game you find.

One of my favorite Spock quotes of all (gotta love Spock quotes, the philosopher of our time) is "having is not as pleasant a thing as wanting. It is not logical, but it is often true."

But of course, back when he said that there was no such thing as a Tron Arcade game. The only hole he's ever had in his logic, 'cause that sucker is much more fun had than wanted... I can assure you.

I seriously doubt you'd be able to use a British C64 easily in the US. Firstly you'd need to sort out some sort of step-up transformer to convert the power to 240V/50Hz and then you'd get to the difficult part. The majority of US televisions can only display an NTSC signal (525 lines @ 60Hz) whereas we in the UK use the PAL system (625 lines @ 50Hz, ahthough most modern PAL TVs can also display NTSC signals). All of the TV system converters I've come across only work on a composite video system (the one I use to connect my NTSC VCR to my PAL VCR uses an RCA connection for the video) and AFAIK the C64 only has RF output.

Of course, if you're prepared to pay the shipping and are willing to put in the effort to get it to work in the US, I have a C64 (second design) that's sitting gathering dust. I'd be willing to part with it for free.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

Heh. Yeah, but still... *sighs* It'd take a lot to work on another c64. x_o;
Ah well, selling the cart is no biggie for me. I can survive with the roms, I suppose.

Blerg, I thought it'd be easy. The cart even looks the same. Feels the same. Just isn't the same, mainly because it has a thicker piece of plastic on the bottom, just above the rom card. That thick piece was what kept the cart from fitting the c64.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

After messing around a bit with the cart and c64... I figured out the problem.
The cart is fine. The thick plastic part is the *standard* for any C64 carts.
It's the C64's cart port that seems to be having problems accepting the cart.

Time to hack it! Mweeeheee.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online
