How many versions of C64 mobos exist??? Every board on his own is a "new"
version. Especially the E-type, the small board.

I consider any C64 as real as long as it is 99% backward compatible. Not
included are programs using illegal codes and/or point to mirrors. This
compatibility INCLUDES hardware. This in a sense rules out emulators.

Hmmm... but what if somebody makes a PC-card which gives you a userport,
joysticks, expansionport etc. etc??? A PC-card with two CIA's and a SID plus
some connectors could do the trick. It would save some emulation and still
you can profit from your VGA.
A step further, add a VIC plus some memory and you have one of the items
Bogax asked for.

This is something that can be done by anyone with some solderring skills. No
fancy IC's needed.

Groetjes, Ruud
