I just posted a 5 part video series which takes a short look at 4 different Pascal compilers available for Commodore 64 systems. I demonstrate running the compiler suites on a C64 Mini system. The example code isn't anything fancy, as I only wanted to test the core usability and provide a brief overview of each tool.
sharkos , great stuff you done! I have to warn you about 8-bit guy, he made false accusations of lags at Mini. He admitted at fb mini group that 1) he didn't update firmware, 2) he didn't set his TV to "game play". Beside, he has a TV set that is not quite compatible with Mini. So, his measures of "0.3 sec" lag at Mini are rare case, not the rule - but he won't admit it. Sad.
Your Pascal videos are great. If you dare, you can make same thing with FORTH - there are few versions of it, DurexFORTH seems to be really fast and advanced one (fb page here). I am newbie there, still learning it, using old good 64 FORTH. Manual is needed, of course, and this free book is a must for beginners like me: www.forth.com/starting-forth/
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
