I was using this schematic: http://www.zimmers.net/anonftp/pub/cbm/schematics/computers/c64/250469-rev.A-left.gif Interesting that other versions used the darlington arrangement: http://www.zimmers.net/anonftp/pub/cbm/schematics/computers/c64/251138-2of2.gif While others used the TIP29 without a darlington arrangement: http://www.zimmers.net/anonftp/pub/cbm/schematics/computers/c64/251469-2of2.gif http://www.zimmers.net/anonftp/pub/cbm/schematics/computers/c64/252278-2.gif It appears some have the 10K, some do not. The use of TIP29Bs in some of the designs without a darlington T to help baffles me, based on Bil's response. TIP29B has better breakdown voltages, but still the same small Hfe of 15.
