    I think thats depending on personal preference and use case.

    Personally i wouldnt by it for my amiga. there almost as expensive as a free sync game monitor that will accept the input form the indi at 50Hz.


    I have one (konig) and tried it. It sort of works on a Indivision.

    It works for me on the default settings (maybe this can very on different firmware?) . The image it self is ok, but VGA sync wont work, also tweaking a bit and the screen go's black. So screen tearing you have..

    For me this is a no go. But i',m using it on my CVS64/3d, altough some modes dont work too.

    On my screens (JVC TM-A14PN and Philips CM8833) i see no difference in colors when using the same VICII revisions.

    But when i compare a 6569R1 to for example a 6569R3, the colors are different (this is expected).

    As far as i can tel the lumafix only reduces the 'colum defect', i use this in my old breadbin.

    Hi, did you try the 'power' switch on the keyrah? Down is for emulators.

    I didnt try this on a PI,, only on my pc with vice, but normally this should configure the keyboard mapping for emulater use

    The sd2iec, works perfectly together with the TC64... (but i assume you already know ;) )

    This way i have the benefits of both :

    - The direct SD acces of the sd2iec for bigger or more files then a 1541 can handle.

    - Everything else from the TC64.

    Only reason for me to unplug the TC64 is, if i have to use the datasette since there is no option to turn the TC64 off (or i have missed something).


    Hmm, indeed on 1024x768@60Hz (and higher resolutions like 1280x1024) i see the same. Its like a horizontal line is duplicated and displayed at the most left position. I can only test these modes on 60Hz

    Never noticed this since i personally prefer 800x600 (with VSync = 50Hz). In this mode , everything is perfect here without the extra "add on" ;).

    Turning Vsync off or using an other scaling method doesnt seem to matter, but the frequency does. When i use 60Hz i see the extra line on the left side again.

    I dont know youre setup, region , settings etc, but maybe you can give a 50hz screen mode a try to see if this works for you too?

    Used setups :

    - C64 Reloaded MK2 (with 8569R3, 6581R4, 8580R5,2x 6522 and 8500) + TC64V2, no other hardware added.

    - C64G, same configuration as the reloaded except for the stereo sid.


    I was using a dvd-rom drive (with his own power supply!) on my deneb and rapid-road (A1200/A500). Works like a charm.

    But since all my amiga's have a network adapter, its rearly used. I just mount what i need over my network with smbfs. This is just as fast and also great to make a backup to a NAS or PC. Works great, but not for WHDLoad, some games/demo's will work, some not.

    I also did use ZIP and JAZ in the past for backups, but they become more unreliable now. And this way i dont need them any more.

    AGA has more bandwith, so it can acces memory faster. This can be a good benefit for games and on WorkBench applications.

    Indeed, RTG runs smoother, even on 24bit color (if I compare AGA vs CVS64/3D on my a4000t/060). But i suspect there is even more FPGA space needed to implement this.

    I think all ported games for the SuperCPU will take advantage of the TC.

    (There is a website dedicated to this subject, but i dont know if its allowed to put the URL here …, but its easy to google ;-)

    Some games like TestDrive will benefit, Some early 3d games are ported to the C64 to and only run on a accelerated c64 (doom, wolfenstein)

    I tried several monitors from LG and samsung and some tv's from Samsung, Telefunken and LG, al give me ghosting. I have no benq to try..

    When i install my old indivision ECS, i see no ghosting at all. I think i can safely say that things like the amiga itself and the PSU are ruled out.

    The ghosting is most obvious some centimeters to the right. When looking realy good its there for about 1/3 of the screen width.

    Its most noticeble with the standard workbench 3.1 colors and no backdrop.

    When i put the background color to black, i also see no ghosting, only 1 extra pixel when a horizontal row of white pixels is used.

    If i start AIBB i see no ghosting. But the intro of turrican 3 i see ghosting . The background is dark gray, not black, all moving parts here give more or less ghosting.

    In the intro of brion the lion i see no ghosting, i expected to see due to the high contrast of the moving tekst. Again no ghosting with black a background.


    Yesterday i recieved my Indivision ECS V2 :). I replaces the original Indivision ECS with the new one in my amiga 500.

    First thing i noticed is "ghosting".

    Note that i dont have this issue with my Indivision ECS V1 with the exact same setup.

    Some details:

    - I use normally a custom build PSU , but also tried an original recapped commodore amiga 500 PSU.

    - The VGA cable is a high quality one (short in length , shielded and with ferret coils).

    The rest of the setup :

    - ACA500+

    - X-Surf-500

    - ACA1233n

    - RTC

    Afcource i also tried without any other extentions and with other monitors and cables.

    Using scanline emulation its less noticeble, but this does not help in interlaced mode.

    When reinstalling my old indivision the ghosting is gone.

    At the moment i'm clueless what's causing the ghosting. Some one any idea what i can try?

    Hi davidpgil,

    The 8562 is NTSC, the 8565 is PAL-B.

    I have 2 C64R2 PAL setups :

    1 with 8565R? VIC II, 6581R4 , 8580R5 and 8500 cpu

    1 with 6569R3 VIC II, 6581R4AR , 8580R5, and 6510 cpu

    Both have 6526s cia's.

    Both systems are perfect stable, no strange things after hours of use, but the 65xx VICII and SID seems to get warmer (i dont know exact measurements, just by feeling). The 6510 and 8500 don't get that warm.

    So i don't experience any stability things with the 65x or 85xx setup (exept for the 6569R1 VICII, i have 2 and get realy hot and instable after an hour or so)

    I think it comes more to personal preference, just like the SID sound.

    My personal preferences is the 8565 when using svideo on my sony TN-A14-PN CRT monitor. With the 6569 i see the coloured columns.

    With my 1084s monitor i have to use composiet, then i prefer the 6569 (no white dots in some games/demo's).Coloured columns are hardly noticible. Screen is still very good!
