I thought I would cover the upgrades I have been making to my Atari ST machines. Well, I say machine(s) plural, but lately I have been focusing on my Atari 520STFM, and I will explain why as we go.
While on unexpected leave from work due to a bereavement, I found myself with time on my hands but not the emotional capacity to do anything challenging. This meant I had to occupy myself with “housekeeping” style tasks, which brought me to doing a bunch of software updates. It seems strange considering we are talking …
Connect your Commodore 64 to the internet for under $10? Let's see how!
In Part 1 we blinked an LED using the Commodore 64 User Port, in Part 2 and Part 3 we got input from the user port and analog signals from the control ports. Now let's kick things up a notch and integrate our C64 with Arduino!
In Part 1 we blinked an LED using the Commodore 64 User Port, and in Part 2 we read binary (on or off) input also using the User Port. In this part we will use the Control Ports to read Joystick input and also analog signals.
In Part 1 we blinked an LED using the Commodore 64 User Port, but outputting is only half of the equation so in this video we use the INPUT to alert us when various sensors are tripped.
Part 1 of a series of electronics projects using the Commodore User Port. In this first lesson we blink an LED on and off with C64 BASIC
