    Hi, it's just my own project. I plan to document it sufficiently and simply enough that folks can build it themselves.

    OK great to hear. Can I suggest some kind of way that interested people like me can keep up with your progress like a blog or mailing list or something like that?

    Well it took a couple of hours, but finally I've managed to put together a post on how to build the Tapuino:
    http://sweetlilmre.blogspot.com/2014...-c64-tape.html

    I've updated the first post to reflect this, now hopefully someone will be brave enough to join me in Tapuino Land!

    Hopefully now I can get back to looking at the code.
    Things I'd like to add:

    • Long filename support
    • Write support
    • Fix the weird end-of-signal issue (this is cosmetic as far as the user is concerned but bugs me...)
    • Other stuff


    I still have about 20K of program space left so there is a lot of code possible.

    Anyway, hope you enjoy.

    Hi,

    I've been working away at the code and have added a percentage complete indicator which helps with the long TAP loads

    I need some help: does anyone have an original tape of BC's Quest for Tires? If so please could you PM me?

    Thanks

    Just ordered the parts from eBay in the UK, so should be here by the end of the week. Another project to build and take up my time!

    Regards

    Good news!

    I migrated the SC card library and now have long filenames working, which makes viewing available TAP files much more pleasant!
    Next up I'm going to start looking at write support.

    Hi mate.

    I got my parts today and have literally thrown it together on these small breadboards just to test it. I haven't yet hooked it up to the C64 as I want to make sure it's working first.

    However, I am currently not getting any activity from the device and was wondering if that is normal without it being connected to the C64?

    Everything is powered and I have double/triple checked all the connections, but still getting nothing on the display. Is this supposed to draw power from the C64 or do you power it via the USB port?

    Thanks in advance!

    Regards
