Shredz64 – Created PC64 Cable

I had a day off from work today, though I ended up sleeping pretty late and not getting everything done I wanted to. I did, however, build a PC64 cable and get cbmlink installed and running on my Debian box. Now I can successfully read/write files/disk images to my C64 from my PC, read/write memory, remotely execute programs, run disk commands, etc. The reason this is related to Shredz64 is now I can actually test it on a real C64 with the controller as opposed to only the emulator with no controller. The cable isn’t too exciting looking to no pictures, but it does operate on a 4-bit parallel connection between the user port and the parallel port, as opposed to a serial connection.

    Hey, I know you posted this a year ago, but I’ve been trying to do the same thing with my debian box and I’ve kind of gotten hung up on it. The steps between transferring the “real” plain.prg, via the type-in server program, and actually running the real server are what I’m hung up on. could you possibly tell me how you managed it?
