- Why etext only and no graphics?
Project 64 concentrates on electronic *text*. We want to keep the dox at the lowest possible common
denominator, plain old vanilla ascii text with no special chars so it could be read on *any* platform.
Eventhough there are some files in PDF, DOC and similar format, we want to stick to TXT for future additions.
PLEASE submit non-text documents to e.g. commodore.bombjack.org.
- Why English only?
This is obsolete now. Any language working properly in ascii text files can be submitted.
We are working on including International Project 64 which hosts non-English versions so far.
- Where is the document I used to link to?
It should still be here :)
Whenever possible the old .ZIP files were unpacked and raw .TXT is provided now. This might have led to changes on upper/lower casing or the name completely even.
We dropped support for Amiga, C16/+4 and VIC-20 nevertheless!
About TEN documents were deleted from direct web access.
*IF* you really need the original files from Dean Thompson's Project 64 site you can download a complete mirror package at project64.c64.org/original.zip .
- The goal of Project 64 is to preserve Commodore 64 related documents in
electronic text format that might otherwise cease to exist with the rapid
advancement of computer technology and declining interest in 8-bit computers
on most parts of the general population. If you would like to help by
converting C64 related hardcopy documents to electronic texts please contact us.
- Extensive efforts were made to preserve the contents of the original
document. However, certain portions, such as diagrams, program listings, and
indexes may have been either altered or sacrificed due to the limitations of
plain vanilla text. Diagrams may have been eliminated where ASCII-art was
not feasible. Program listings may be missing display codes where
substitutions were not possible. Tables of contents and indexes may have
been changed from page number references to section number references.
Please accept our apologies for these limitations, alterations, and possible omissions.
