Hi guys, my question for you is the following: is it possible to create separate folders on the c64? The point is, I bought that to my disabled uncle and I would like to facilitate him in the game selection. There are lots of games in the opening screen so I would like to instantly make visible to him those which he usually plays. Thank you for your attention. Bye.
The device doesn't have the capability to house games within separate folders at this stage. Who knows, they might add support for it in a firmware upgrade one day, but I feel it'd be a while down the track if they do.
One option that could do the trick is to perform a mod to the mini and tailor the list of games on the carousel to suit your Uncle's preference.
Be mindful, it involves a small hardware mod too (soldering some header pins for a uart connection), a bit of linux familiarity (to type in various commands to tweak the list of games on the device).

DG5KR: When I was young I felt like the world was turning faster. The C64 was a world full of adventure. First Basic, then Assembler, playing incredible games with friends. It was the best time of my life.

j.: @lordvico - I've noticed this with lots of games. I wondered if this was a PAL vs. NTSC thing and also wondered why the screen type wasn't translated for me.

j.: william - don't pull the joystick. If you need to pull to insert a USB stick - get a USB hub so you can have both plugged in at the same time. One way to save would be to use the game save-state feature. This would be the easiest to do for 4 or less

william: So far I am pretty frustrated using the BASIC. Every time I pull out the joy stick to put the usb into the machine it pops out of BASIC and goes back to the main menu. How does one write a program in BASIC and save it?

eBUG: Hmm how about the C64 makers include some Pascal software and other creative software in addition to games in the carousel ? :-D
