As the c64 gets older and chips keep failing , is anyone looking in to any production runs or new or compatible chips.

i.e

pla - jens has done this with a Mach chip on a pcb, superpla
sid - swinsid
cia -
6510 - 65816,8500 mos
VIC II

you can add the VIC II to that list bud.

the swidsid is a great replacement but its not 100% compatible.

There's also a PLA replacement made from a standard EPROM. I've made several of these and can confirm that they work well with no incompatibilities found up to now.

P.s. +1 for your spelling of "Dying" :D
