Why are they only getting it now?
Something to do with the 60hz ?
Will it do well over there?

This was just posted to their YouTube channel. No sign of new firmware yet, but could it be today?

I have been waiting patiently for this update - I only took it out of the box to look at it on release day. I also want to use a usb joypad with it or is there any way to use my original zipsticks or cruisers with it?

Thanks

Nope. Needs a joystick with at least 8 buttons. No way to map buttons either, so support for gamepads is patchy too.

Think it's time to open this baby up, unopened since launch. Although might wait till Xmas at this stage to relive Christmas youth of 1990 :-)

The update has definitely made a difference to the response for the supplied joystick, played a good bit of Boulder dash and gribblys day out just now, very happy with the difference.

Off topic, but if anyone wants to get their blocky brown fix on the go, the Odroid Go now has a pretty good C64 emulator.

Edit: It's the Frodo emulator.

v1.1.1 of the firmware is out (containing a USB fix)

Great to see that this update supports T64 and PRG files too.
