Hi, new member here!!

Hi everyone, just wanted to introduce myself, i'm a new member here but a long time commodore fan!

I have recently resurrected my two old commodore machines after getting tired of pc emulation, as we all know there is nothing better then the real thing.

I have an Amiga 600(with slight issues lol), 2mb chip with 2 floppy drives. I also have a pcmcia adapter and a 4gb CF card for copying out adf's to new floppies. I have recently bought 30 new floppy disks to start a new collection of games and demos with.

I also have a C64 with a disk drive and datsette, i load tape games on it through a tape adapter that's plugged into a pc netbook's headphone output, that is outputting the tape roms sound to load games. A cheap method of playing any tape game on a real c64.

Both machines are running on a commodore 1084s monitor, and i have various joysticks and disk/tapes for both machines.
I am looking at buying a pimped out Amiga 1200 at a later stage.

Looking forward to chatting with you all!

Hi hansel75, welcome to the EAB. Best of luck with your new Commodore endeavours!

Instead of building up a big heap of floppy disks, why not consider a HxC SD Card floppy emulator? http://www.lotharek.pl/product.php?pid=13 Just an idea.
