@ChristopherJam: Just for the fun of it i tried to split the REU file into 50KB chunks and use SPINDLE to create the disks. It takes up 23 disksides.

I do not know of any 16 MB REUs which does not facilitate loading REU files from some storage medium.

Could you please enlighten me and let me know which hardware configuration you have in mind that would require a D64 version (both REU and IEC hardware) ?

A most excellent tribute. Nice work!

so - when's the .d64 release? 10 sides should do it, shouldn't take more than five or six minutes to load and decrunch all the data..

Since the command line args for VICE were posted, is it worth adding a .bat file to the zip?

Thanks Sascha for directing attention to that crappy version of Bottom :) I hope there'll be another one up :) ... I must admit I hadn't myself much experience running these REU-thingies, so here is a quick recipe for Winvice:

1) Go to Settings => Cartridge / IO settings, choose REU Settings
2) Enable the Ram Expansion Unit + choose REU size to 16384 browse for the bottom.reu and choose it
3) Drag then the prg-file of the demo to winvice

remember to choose the correct sid chip (8580).
It was really delightful meeting with some of the bonzists (Dize, Trap and Walt) - it was pure fun :)

Not checked with vice yet and just had a quick look on youtube... This one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wiKyvqJn768 is surely not captured with correct emu setting, right?

Really nice animation sequences here (what?! No youtube video?! I have people wanting to see new c64 stuff!!!)...
I had no issues attaching the reu image, or even running it on Vice 2.4.

Awesome! Very fluid animation. Nice detail how after I had adjusted the REU settings in Vice and loaded the file while the blank screen after the intro was running, the REU part started without having to reload.

Loaded fine on the latest Winvice which I hate the reverb when closing!!

Just don't do what I did for 10 mins and forget to enable the REU device, picked the file and size but forgot to enable it..No more white screen..V Nice..Mayall was a B'stard in real life, used to park across the disabled bay in Sainsburys Chiswick in his huge old merc..

Totally true and did it loads..

Lame question: How the F can I load that .REU file? Thought it was through the inspector but it can only save the REU file. Oh... that was actually it ;)
