The tool was only for windows though, but he provided the source-code, so I tried porting it to build for Mac OSX (to work on my macbook), so I'll share that effort here, just in-case other Mac users might need it:
If the PETSCII character is A-Z, make it a-z (PETSCII 97-122, subtract 32) If the PETSCII character is a-z, make it A-Z (PETSCII 65-90, add 32) If the PETSCII character is 192-223, subtract 96. Then subtract 32 if the resultant value is 97-122.
And here's another fun trick:
A group called "Style64" has created a TrueType font that maps the PETSCII character set both as screen codes and in the PET ASCII order:
If you add the PETSCII value and $E000, you'll get a Unicode character that matches the PETSCII symbol. You can then write that back out as Unicode text and load it up in a text editor that can handle Unicode.

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
