No its not my FTD232,I had it on 5V thats why the Uart is not working,I blown it,damn I need a new board,anyone got a spare with the Uart working..
what does TX and RX stand for ..I guess TX stands for TEXT what about RX maybe REX... ..?
So the RX line has to be 3.3V only not 5V otherwise it will blow the Uart on TheC64 Mini,well it does cos it did it to me...
TX = Transmit RX = Receive
Yeah, I have no idea what the X is for either 😉
To test your Mini's, the best I can think of is to use a multimeter and see if there's any change on the Tx if you switch the Mini on. Or maybe there's a Mini enthousiast nearby who owns an Oscilloscope?
synchromesh: Anyone know why thec64.com is down ?

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
