Hi there,

I have available now my BackBit cartridge for Commodore 64 & 128. It's a multi-function cartridge that operates with a Micro-SD card.

For more details, check out http://backbit.io.

Thanks!

For those that might be interested in this product, I have written a review of it on my webpage after a week of using the cartridge. You can read the review here:

For the C64, C128 (in 40-column mode), and VIC-20, the BackBit cartridge is still for sale at

https://www.backbit.io/

See Evie's introduction to the BackBit at



and how to use the BackBit at



The big selling point of the cartridge is its compatibility with various disk, tape, and cartridge images, like D64, D81, CRT, PRG, P00, .20, .40, .60, .a0, and more. Just drop the image(s) onto a microSD card and pop the card into the BackBit. You see the file(s) on a menu, you select the one you want, and it loads and runs. No Commodore calisthenics to get the computer to recognize the image type.

As mentioned above, the BackBit cartridge works with the VIC-20 with a special adapter that fits the BackBit into the adapter. Evie has a video that explains it at
