Ultimate 64

Finally, the next item for my quest to build a Commodore 64 has arrived. After several weeks of travelling the world in a box, the Ultimate 64 circuit board arrived at my house in L.A. this week. You can see it (with the 3D-printed joystick from my last post) in all its glory in the picture below. With the keyboard and the circuit board checked off the list, now only the case is missing, which should arrive shortly as well.

So far I haven’t done much more than connecting the keyboard and typing in some basic BASIC, but now that all electrical parts are here, it’s time to put the joystick through its paces and finish the paddle controller. More to come…
