i see all you fancy pants guys making the tap player for the C64 with its IEC and disk drives galore but what about the mighty PET ?

well i thought id have ago.

following peters great guide on his blog , i have spent the afternoon making the same thing but for a PET , not the c64 - although i will try it later.

So how did i get on ? well no mistakes i followed his pretty simple pictures and instructions ...the only bit i got wrong was that i plugged the LCD display data wires in the wrong way around...

So does it work? hell yes and its great!

Well done sir.

So here is my mock up - this is how I've just tried it. No tidying up or moving cables , i don't have any buttons yet!

but here it is..

Problems?

Well i forgot the edit the user file in the arduino master file but after selecting the first LCD and selecting the set and language. it uploaded just fine.

i might have to have a play with the settings :)

thank you.

mike.

Great job Mike :)

I just ordered the PetDisk from Bitfixer for my 8032 and a PetVet for a poorly garbled screen 2001 but the tap looks a really neat solution, especially the LCD screen :)

thanks bud.

Ah very good, let me know how you get on with the PetVet , i used the ROM board from tynemouth software, really fast delivery too.

I'll box the tap player in an enclosure tomorrow and make it look pretty :)
