For anyone who may be interested, I recently wrote a program in BASIC, for the C64, to record video gaming achievements and hi-scores. I called the program 64GameLogger and you can find out more about it on my Commodore blog, HERE
I won't make any promises; I've written this program for my own needs. So, chances are, I'm the only one that will find it of any use. But, if you'd like to give it a whirl, it's at least something else you can do with your C64, or TheC64Mini, or the upcoming TheC64 besides gaming. Of course, if you do run it on TheC64Mini, you'll probably want to have a USB keyboard plugged in.
I'm not a master at programming in BASIC, but I had fun putting this little app. together.

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
