C64 Reloaded MK2

This is my C64 Reloaded MK2 board from Individual Computers  The board is equipped with black ZIF sockets. Users have to populate the board with their own chips. I plan to use the following original Commodore chips: CPU (MOS 6510), CIA’s (MOS 6526), SID’s (MOS 6581 and 8580R5) and a VIC-II (MOS 6569R5). The machine differs from the first version of the C64 reloaded boards (link, link) in several areas: it does not need a PLA nor a CSG8701 timing generator and up to two SID chips can be installed. All installed chips are detected atutomatically meaning that the Commodore 64 Reloaded MK2 is a completely jumper-free design. Furthermore, all ROMs are held in a user-writable flash ROM. Using an USB cable and a terminal program, the C64 Reloaded MK2 can be flashed with custom Kernal ROMs like JiffyDOS.

Here are a bunch of pictures of the board before any chips have been installed.

  1. Have you been able to get a 1351 mouse adapter to work with the MK2 even when using an 8580R5 or ARMSID? On my MK2 and Ultimate 64 Elite I have had no luck but I can get it to work on my 64C with either chip.

    Thank you,
    Doug.

  2. Hi Doug, I have not tried the combinations that you mention. Have you tried asking Jens and/or Gideon about the issue?
