Sales of the SIDBOX is currenlt Unavailable as it still in early stages...

You can find out more on MsMadLemons youtube review.

PLEASE know, I will be releasing the SidBox for sales soon, but as for a date: I will update this page to give one.

I am truely sorry.... PLEASE stick with me though - There are features that I want to be 100% working. MsMadLemon and John (Bugg) are helping me debug and give me ideas of the interface.

I am a one man Band and these have to be made by hand currently so when orders are opened up. they may take a few days for each one to be made.

John is looking into designing the packaging and moulding of the case for me...

23-MAR-2018 FONTS

I'd like to say a big thank you to Shawn Tewes from the SIDBOX facebook group, for producing the fonts outside of the original SIDBOX rom, these fonts can now be used in the sidbox.

rename your font to "font.fon" and store it to \S\ reboot.

22-MAR-2018 CASES

Just has some amazing support, from Cato Hagen from the SIDBOX facebook group - offered to help supply some very seriously nice prints, using strong PLA.

May even have rubber shock protection cases also. From what I've, these are clearly at a great standard!

6502 EMULATION: [back to top]

While this unit has the capacity to emulate the 6502, the memory model does not 100% fit around the C64... There are just time critical stuff this chip while could do it, would not be fast enough to BE a c64 at any useable rate... however my own "computer" seems to run well enough for basic games... the one thing i DID try to keep is the memory locations for the SID, Using KickAss Assembler, this system will run 6502 code. will run .prg files, but since the memory maps aren't the same from a c64, you might have some interesting results.

I've included the software here and while this program is in constant updates, it uses legacy visual basic, while it does work, some of you might cringe... for the purpose of testing and speed , VB is still viable
