I would definitely buy one, and probably two. It would be very nice to have some adequate amounts of RAM and flash ROM included, unlike MMC64 which include a ridiculous amount of flash ROM and no RAM at all.

I would happily pay 100 for it, very cool device. A couple of suggestions to pass on to the dev, G64 image support would provide the best compatibility. Also it would be nice to be able to flash in JiffyDOS, speeder carts don't always work and true emu means slow loading. JiffyDOS FTW! :lol:

I'll post here too, so I won't miss it.

it looks interesting, and I'd seriously consider buying one, although the 100 euro price is expensive for me. Then again, I'm 17, so that's not a big surprise ;_)

Don't worry soon you'll age into an old fart like the rest of us, apart from the drawbacks of sagging you have the positive thing called "a job", if you get a geeky enough job you can be obscene pay for not a lot of effort :-)

Hello all!

Well, finally then, as the main developer of the 1541 Ultimate, I decided that it was about time to become a member of this forum as well. :) Thank you all for the great interest in what was once just a hobby-project! Your interest in the product certainly helps to really finish it and add more exciting features! :wink:

Recently, I added 40-track D64 support, and implemented the REU (with 16MB, avilable on the Ultimate PLUS only 8) ). I also did some bug-fixes to make it work correctly as drive 9, 10 or 11. Aside from working on the stand-alone version, I am currently investigating what's needed to support G64 (raw GCR format), and thinking on how to improve the sound output.

Some mentioned to me the use of JiffyDOS. There is no need to flash this; just put the 16K rom on the SD-card and call it "1541.rom", and it will automatically replace the built-in 1541 rom. Pretty much the same applies for the fpga logic itself and the file browser application. A newer version can be flashed, but it can also just be put on the SD-card. Flashing is only necessary when one wants to boot the cartridge without SD-card in it, or often swap cards and not be bothered by which cards holds the Ultimate application.

You could always E-mail me, or post here with questions or enroll for the pre-order of the first production batch. Please let me know then also if you want to have the 'standard' version, or the 'plus' version with 32MB of ram.

Just when you think it can't get any better, eh? Well done, Gideon.

Welcome :)

Picture of the plus version :)

Is lead serial long enough to fit the sx64 while in the cartridge slot . ?

Got one: Will you open the sources for the FPGA contents or will we have to rely on you for any updates?

How is pre-ordering done.
Will the ultimate plus with 32MB be part of the first production run.

check out http://www.c64web.com many new changes.

Have Fun Shane

Holy crap! 32 MB RAM .. that's reckless :D

Now I just gotta find out a way to use it... Hmm! DMA transfers possible? :idea:

Yes, that is indeed possible. DMA transfer is the native method for data transfer of the REU, which is already implemented. Ideas are welcome to extend the REU functionality beyond 16 MB. Personally, I think 16MB is enough and enthousiasts could program nice features using this extra memory. Expect that in a few months time, I'll make this project open-source ;-)

Yes, the 32MB version is part of the first production run. Preordering can be done by sending me an E-mail with your preorder request. I'll later send out an E-mail to all people with payment and shipping details.
