the Original Parameter Cross Reference

So this is a nice program and the PDF print out can be easily found online. But this is not a copy program, but will tell you what copies what. You type in the software’s name and it tells you what will copy it. The PDF online is for volume #8 and is 155 pages long!
If we didn’t have the PDF available then this program would be more useful. Also I prefer this program over the similar program called: What Copy’s What

Teja_Soft_Ad-1_Page_7In this ad by Tejas Soft for the Original Parameter Cross-reference there is now over 9,000 listings.

Kartridge Kracker

Kartridge Kracker – 1985. Allowed you to dump 8K and 16K cartridges onto a disk to load later. I have not been able to find the software or hardware for this. NOTE the C64 cartridge port AND a Vic-20 port both on this one card! I also scanned the small manual (including an Erratta Page and an index card with a manual correction) in and you can read it here: Kartridge Kracker Manual

More info from Jim Drew: This is a pseudo-copy of the “blue board” that was developed for CompuTron Buisness Systems by Cardco. I wrote the software for it in 1983.

The larger cartridge port is for a 16K VIC-20 RAM expansion. You would copy the C64 cartridge to disk and load it back to the 16K RAM expansion, and write protect the RAM with a dip switch. This emulates a cartridge perfectly. No need to crack anything, like changes to $01.

Screen shots and Video are below.

Neuromancer Code Wheel

NeuromancerPicPAXNeuromancer also uses a code wheel. When you use the PAX machine (see picture) you are given three access codes and you are asked for a verification code.

Here is an image of the C64 code wheel, which was not purple as shown in some photos.

I bought this game so I could take apart the code wheel and scan them in. So here is the PDF of the top and bottom for Neuromancer codewheel
