A petition for ask to add complete TAP and DATASETTE support to C64 core

Postby Lroby74 » Fri Mar 15, 2019 1:08 pm

On this site a petition was created to ask for the implementation of full support for TAP files and Datasette (including the counter if possible), as it is considered a very important function:

Funny if you think you can force anybody to use his free time on your command :D
Btw did you now, Sorgelig is working on MiSTer nowadays?

A request is not same as a stretch.. Petition is only for show to Experts C64 FPGA Core developers (like you, him and others) than missing TAP and Datasette is a lack for many of final users :(

Yes i know that Sorgelig is on Mister since almost 2 years... but i see Mister and Mist like cousins.. upgrades for one of them tipically is a good thing for other one too

Thanks for reply

I know that probably nothing will change.. but at least i am trying it

You know you can just convert them to .prg files right?

Surely, but there are something that a D64, a CRT or a PRG can't do.. like Music during game's loading, and memories and emotions of when I was a child. Also in Italy there are a lot of tapes that were sold in newsstands full of games and that we Italians really loved a lot. It would not be the same thing if those games were loaded in other formats

The idea of ​​implementing full support for TAP files and advanced Datassette management does not seem at all bad to me.
The possibility of seeing some old beautiful music loaders can represent another kind of retrogaming/retrocomputing approach.
