Jingle Disk – An 80s Digital Christmas on the Commodore 64

Jingle Disk:

Just a guilty pleasure! It plays Christmas music and has animation. It can also create printed greeting cards on a real Commodore. To run it, LOAD”JINGLE”,8,1 The disk requires that your printer must be off when booting the disk. (If using an emulated Commodore, virtually turn off or disconnect the emulated printer, don’t worry about your PC or Mac’s real printer.) It also sometimes freezes at the end of the ‘Tunes,’ so it may need re-booting.

ComputerEyes – Image Scanning with the Commodore 64

nan-computereyes - Sample image included with system software. Very nice, but I doubt the device can actually approach this quality.

ComputerEyes by Digital Solutions:

I’ve never found these disks anywhere online, and this could be useful to someone who has the ComputerEyes unit but no software. Here are the disks of various drivers in D64 format. In my opinion, the GEOS CE Driver results in the best quality image, but it’s really not very intuitive to use and requires much tweaking before a good result is found. For quick and easy scans, just use the master disk. Once you’ve figured out how to get these disk images onto a real floppy, it’s easy to transfer your scanned image back to a .D64 image and open it on your PC or Mac. Included are: CE System Software, Source Code, Drivers for Print Shop and GEOS, as well as the complete text of the manual. (My ComputerEyes Doodle driver disk is damaged; if anyone has a working copy, please contact me!)

The first image above is a sample images that came with the ComputerEyes software. It’s very nice, but I sort of doubt the CE device can really approach this quality. The other two images were made with ComputerEyes, GEOS and a video camera, see if you can recognize the droids and robots! They are action figures sitting behind my Commodore 128. The photo of the girl was scanned from a photo, but you should be able to get a good scan if your subject is still for maybe 60 seconds.

Exploring Odell Lake and Odell Woods with the Commodore 64

Decisions, decisions…


Into the woods, then out of the woods, and home before lunch!

Odell Lake and Odell Woods

Another couple of games I loved on the Apple were the classic Odell Lake and the lesser known Odell Woods. Again, I always wished I had them for the Commodore, and now I found them on one disk on an auction site! Here is the disk in D64 format. At this moment I don’t really have time to scan or type the manuals, but the Odell Lake/Odell Woods: Outdoor Biology software is pretty straightforward. Someday I’ll get around to it and add the manuals.
