01.07.2020 - Making a C64/C65 compatible computer - Built-in Sprite Editor Progress

The reason for doing this is that unlike BASIC 7 on the C128, the C65's BASIC 10 doesn't include a sprite editor.

01.07.2020 - 37 C64 games in a row - 2020 Reset64 4kb 'Craptastic' Game Compo releases available
The official compilation disk for the '2020 Reset64 4kb Craptastic Game Competition' is online and ready for download. “What the bloom’n heck does craptastic mean?”, I hear you ask. It certainly doesn’t mean crap, although it can! Craptastic can mean ludicrous, bonkers, outrageous, funny, wacky, far out, and silly. The theme simply implies that the compo was just for a bit of fun, not a serious coding competition. Competitors were welcome to make an excellent game to submit for the compo, or games that contain some humour or silliness to fit more with the theme, but they didn’t have to!
