Btw. do you have more than 100 Games added to Carousel (original mini + own)? 100 is Max.
And you can try something else.
- Boot up your mini with console connected - kill the the64 process - start /bin/the64 again
And look if he gives you some error msg while starting it.
Just had the Problem, that my mini didnt start the carousel, because i had some spacing failure in 2 .tsg files i put on it before. starting it from console he showed me exactly which file(s) it was which caused him not to load the carousel

I have the following output with two cover images not loading...

You have some errors on your USB drive filesystem, as shown by the 'EXT4-fs' errors. That might be the reason for the strange behaviour.. You either need to repair the filesystem or just create a new one (after backing up your own game files and other changed files). Making an new one is probably easier. To repair, you could remove the USB drive an boot into the normal C64Mini mode. Then insert the USB drive and run the filesystem repair program (e2fsck):
umount /dev/sda2 e2fsck -p /dev/sda2
But recreating is much better, as you don't know if any files were damaged
... I added some games to the carousel - the games work fine, but some cover pix get mixed up with pix of other games, some screen pixs get mixed up with screen pix of other games, too. The paths in the .tsg files are set correctly. Someone an idea for this behaviour?

I'm Don . Having game troubles: I'm trying to play games in classic mode. I'm using dirmaster to load these games to a USB stick. Some play but others no joystick operation. Also , how do I change games that are in a weird graphics character mode, i.e. Manic Mansion and others?

Frank C64: Hi. I have another suggestion for a firmware update: Support for all four disk drives. Since it is already in VICE it should be a no-brainer to add. I would love that feature, as it would make it soooo much easier to work with my old Pascal 64 compiler.

Shell: Is there an official way to swap disks for the TheC64? Other than folders and all that stuff? Tried to find solution but it's all old info...

pantera: Found the solution for getting Mindshadow two disk version to work, _ad needs to be put on the end of the filename and fast loading needs to be turned off. ie. MNDSHDW1_ad.D64 and MNDSHDW2_ad.D64

RubiconVale: Got my mini on Friday. Thanks for this community! So far everything has been working great.

pantera: Has anyone managed to get Mindshadow to run properly on TheC64 Maxi ? The single file version works, up to the point where you get off the island, then crashes. The two disk version will not load. The two disk version loads fine on CCS64
