The machine I have is a more traditional “breadbox” model with box. It only came with a PSU and a box and was “untested” due to the original owner not having a video cable. Luckily, after some initial testing, it actually booted up just fine.
- CPU: MOS 6510 (variant of the 6502) @ 1.023 MHz
- RAM: 64KB
- Tested PSU
- Made a 8-pin DIN to RCA cable
- Cleaned up
So far I don’t have many plans for this machine outside of just loading it up with software. Eventually I want to find all the disk and cartridge games I remember playing as a kid, but for now emulation will work.
- Attach a Power Saver to prevent a future incident with the PSU
- Get a SD2IEC or other 1541 drive emulator
- Get two joysticks
