First of a wonderful product! I had given up hope of seeing my c64's ever running again!
Unfortunately I ran into some problems which I hope you can help me with.
I have equipped all the needed chips salvaged from my old C64's.
VIC-II: 8565 (75 00 AF61 PAL)
SID 1 : 8580 (DF 00)
SID 2 : Unknown (14 00)
CPU : PHI2 OK (0451)
MCU : 20180227
I have put the c64r into a c64c case. This one comes with a metal sheet as heat sink. Unfortunately it doesn't fit over the board. The screw holes in the metal plates don't line up because of the upper left ziff socket.
As for now I am leaving the metal plate off.
Do I need to arrange some separate cooling solutions for the chips or is the passive cooling enough?
Everything seems to be working.
Except the screen is monochrome. I have tried a different VIC chip (6569) as well.
The C64 is hooked up via S-video to the S-video port of the TV.
The TV port itself is configured to PAL
Unfortunately all my old C64's came with an Antenna connection instead of the Video DIN one. So I don't have any cables lying around to test it.
Is there something I can try to get the colors back? Perhaps some setting I overlooked somewhere?
I'll be buying a new S-video to tulip connector cable when the stores are open again.
