Ultimate 64 user manual

Hi,

I've searched high and low and haven't been able to find any good info on how to use the ultimate 64.

I need information about all jumpers on the board, keyboard shortcuts (like how do I switch between the 2 sid's) and finally how do I use the network connection.

I know this information is probably somewhere, but to me it is impossible to find. Please help me :)

Awesome! Thank you guys.

Now, I still need to understand how to switch between the SID's. I'm guessing nobody figured that out yet?

With the latest firmware (from beginning of September), switching SIDs is possible in the settings via the menu. You can specify for each SID socket which address it is listening to and you can specify the volume/panning of each audio source.

The SID configuration is automatically configured for the internal SID player. You only need to specify which SID model is put in which socket.

Using ACID64 with a Ultimate 64 (or Ultimate 1541 II+):


Also works on macOS and Linux using Wine ;-)

Is there a convenient way to connect a u64 via Wifi to the network? Cables are so 90ies..

There's a powerful radio chip inside (the ESP32 (wroom), a dual core MCU), but it is not yet enabled.

i'd pay extra for gideon to forget about external sids, wifi, network and other useless crappery for at least a year or two and focus on the C64 part instead :=P

I guess at some point enough people will complain about demos and games not running properly. :)

I guess in long run those are cool features. It is just that they are a bit useless now when CPU and other parts of C64 compatibility is broken. And I'm sure Gideon will get there eventually.

Still waiting for my board to arrive :(

its much more fun to implement new exciting features than fixing the nasty last 5% though... :=P

The new firmware fixes a lot of demos for me!
