C64SD V3.0 Princess - The first SD2IEC with tap file support! [Hardware Review]



Quote:
From the experience of c64sd v2 INFINITY (by Manosoft) and ITS module (infinity tape sd2iec) (by Hawui1/Manosoft), this device emulates both floppy disc and real player datasette's! Today thanks to Manosoft they have sent us their latest brand new product for review, so let's take a look!

I hope you get it to work, it's the best DK Jr by far, even better than the original arcade game imo.

Excellent review there Neil.

For tape fans it sounds like the most reliable way of loading c64 tape games, ever!!!

It's looking nice, but you can start thinking about an 1541 Ultimate II, if it's getting more pricey with every SD2IEC alternative.

The 1541 Ultimate II will bring this to your C64: [ Show youtube player ]

Cpt Hindsight I've tried contacting the developer of the 1541 Ultimate II for a review but so far I've been ignored for the last two months.

Have you tried contacting Gideon on Fakebook ?

I unfortunately had to sign up there only because he seems more active there than on the 1541U website forums.

The 1541U-II might be expensive but it's worth every penny.

I always got fast answers by him via his contact mail address at his site: http://www.1541ultimate.net/content/index.php
Atm, I'm just using my C128 D and my C64 C is collecting dust (thanks to the 8580) and it seems to be some kind of hit and miss, if the 1541U II is working with a Commodore 128 or not, so I didn't dare to buy one myself yet.

Tried that email address, for a good month or so, nothing. Perhaps he thinks it's spam
