Hi Jens,

I hope you are going to offer the C64 Reloaded in good numbers. Apparently I am not the only one trying to order one as your website is not responding. Was fine a few minutes ago. I'd say you have a lot of demand for it!

Has the inexpensive REU for C64 been mentioned yet here? It seems it could be a new product *if* there is enough interest.

http://www.lemon64.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=36367


I would love to see this product added to the list of new C64 products!

A week for this: http://www.amiga30.eu/

I hope the new PSU adapter will be there. Someone making videos of the event would be nice.

Kudos to Jens - I had taken a 3 year hiatus from my A500 (after purchasing a A1220 in late 2012) - after reading that ACA500s would no longer be produced, I found one on eBay. The ACA500 and A1220 are working flawlessly - it's a completely new machine!

Many thanks to you - you did a FANTASTIC job with these!

+1 to that. I have the same ACA500 and A1220 and they are great, the best devices I have bought for Amiga since I first got into Amiga in the 80's! I read he is showing the new version of ACA500 (ACA500Plus) at the upcoming Amiga event. Can't wait to see that model.

It looks like it. And I was wrong it is the ACA500Plus, not 530.

I wish I could go!

I'm very interested in the new DC-DC converter. I would like to know about the progress on it... when can I buy it.

These were definitely not the last C64 Reloaded; we'll have more in about two weeks. And with one customer not paying his invoice for an ACA1233-40, one more of those is now available to the community.

Jens

edit: and gone.

The ACA620 sells a lot better, which is why I will continue to make that.

I see the same effect on A1200 accelerators: The ACA1233-40 sells slowly, much slower than the lower-end ACA1220 and ACA1232 cards (which are sold out now). Resellers and customers are telling me that they are waiting for the ACA1221(ec) to be released, because they are going to be a lot cheaper.

Jens
I would love to get one as well. Missed it when it was still available

Count me in for an ACA630 as well, please! Old or new Plus version, I don't mind. Lots of stuff drags on anything less than a 25Mhz 030.

Just to comment that I've seen these guys still have the ACA1231/42 in stock, and it is a great machine, hard to find.

http://asb-computer.com/shop/product...c6e180f393166c

I get 10Mips with it, much more than the Blizzard 030 gets.

@Retrofan: Hmm... I think you are looking at their old website... They moved their webshop quite a while ago to http://amigastore.eu

Ah, ok. So I will sell my ACA1231/42 more expensive...

I'm thinking in getting a Spectrum +3. Offers accepted by PM.

Got my C64 Reloaded motherboard this week =) Works like a charm.

Only thing I was disappointed in was that I tried to put it in a C64C with the old motherboard ( https://ilesj.files.wordpress.com/20...otherboard.jpg ) and the keyboard stands does not fit. Never saw any information about that anywhere.

Had to order new ones from shapeways.com

Instead of buying new ones from shapeways (which are definitely great!), you could have done a simple mod by just bending up that one metal post that doesn't fit over the joystick ports.

I did try these mounts, and also added the required GND field for the left keyboard stand that's a bit rare - one that stands on the mainboard.

Good call, I should have though of that. Thanks.

Good news is that the keyboard stands was the last thing I did not have so by ordering new ones, I can spare my original C64 from being butchered =)
