C16 / Plus 4 Utilities
Below are some useful utilities that can be used in converting files, playing back sound, etc.
** Note: Many of the Commodore 64 utilities will also work with C16 and Plus/4 systems **
These utilities allow you to get programs off your old audio cassettes and disks
and into your computer, or vice-versa. Naturally, this will require
a cassette player, a suitably configured sound card and cabling
between the two.
|Wave Converter||Csabo's Wave Converter for Windows|
|Uploader v1.3||Utility by D.Mike for transferring PRG files directly from a PC to a Plus/4 or C64. Requires a parallel port->userport cable, wiring information is included in the README file. Uses a command-line program (upload.exe) for sending, and a PRG program (P4boot.prg for Plus/4, c64boot.prg for C64) for receiving. The PRG must be transferred to the Plus4/C64 by other means (such as copying to and loading from disk, or by re-typing the file on the Plus4/C64).
The inpout32.dll must be copied to the Windows installation folder before running upload.exe.
These utilities convert program files or BASIC program listings from one file format into another.
|PSID16||Converts SID-tunes, Compute SID-player tunes (MUS) and Compute Stereo SID-player tunes (MUS+STR) to a C16/C232/Plus4 program which plays the tune on a real (or emulated) C16/C232/Plus4. Because the C16/Plus4 has no SID-chip a SID-card is needed|
