I first got into the Commodore world with a VIC-20 that I paid over 200.00 USD for (at the Navy Exchange on the base I was stationed on back in 'the old days')and a tape drive.

I have some time to spend with my grandson now, who, even though his mom has got him a fancy xbox game machine and a windows machine, is still more thrilled about my pictures of the Commodore and the history of the Commodore. He saw a special on tv about it.

I was going to try to find the best emulator I could and set it up for him on my computer, which is running Windows 7 ultimate.

Bottom line is if anyone could recommend a good starting point for this project I would appreciate it, as I have not been able to locate a working Commodore 64 and tape or disk drive.

Please email me at starmaster at gmaildotcom

Thank you so much

I like WinVice. Try Googling it! And if you want to download some games, just ask. I have several URLs for you.

There are *lots* of *real* Commodore 64 computers and peripherals on eBay.
Look at this one:

Probably VICE. Package comes with many different Commodore machines, like
VIC20, C64, C128, PET and others. <http://vice-emu.sourceforge.net/>

I like CCS64 - you can have your disk images in a folder, and double click them to load and run - you can also load the image and run what you want - it works fine for me on Win7.
