That's good going! I'd say 90% of my floppy disks (boxed games and apps, and copied disks) have not survived bitrot or fungus such a shame, should have stored them better

yeah I lost a few original boxes (including Psygnosis' Awesome ) to actual fungus a way back. I was precious about my disks though!

Of the disks I still have and tried so far, Turricans 1 and 2, and Stardust have survived 25+ years of bitrot.
Nice.. I see some good images of this monitor connected to an amiga on google. If you get some time can you share some photos of how it looks?

What type of connection do you need to plug an amiga into this monitor?

I didn't want to make any hole in my C64's, but a couple of weeks ago I taked the "ugly" one to make all of the holes and "things" that you don't usually like to make. Well, you know... you want but you ... "shouldn't" if you understand me.

I've also ordered switches, leds, connectors and things like that.

I just think that this will be the C=64 that will give me more fun in return.

Edit: I think that I commented here that I bought a C=128. Well... that was a BAD deal with my wife. It was a bargain and I couldn't let it pass, so I told her that it would be for my birthday. Puff, ahem ahem. Well... it will be in march and come on... the parcel unopened here, beside me

The 64JPX adapter. You can safely connect a Mega Drive controller to a C64 and get some nice extras with different presets e.g. a jump button (great for Sam's Journey), 2 different auto-fire modi, left/right wiggle directions mapped on the buttons (Decathlon type games) etc.
