The old titles are nonetheless very common, and placing them in a modern day package tends to make them even additional accessible. On the other hand, if you nonetheless have the original hardware points can get started finding fussy. With modern day technologies it is feasible to make some alterations, although, as [PJ Allen] did by adding wireless capabilities to his Commodore 64.

Back when the method was nonetheless thought of “modern”, [PJ] attempted to create a wireless controller utilizing DTMF more than FM radio. He couldn’t get it to function precisely correct and ended up shelving the project till the present day. Now, we have a lot additional tools at our disposal than analog radio, so he pulled out an Arduino and a handful of Bluetooth modules. There’s a bit of finesse to finding the old hardware to behave with the modern day gear, although, but after [PJ] worked by way of the kinks he was capable to play his classic games like Defender without having the limitations of wired controllers.

The Commodore 64 was extremely common in the ’80s and early ’90s, and its legacy is nonetheless observed currently. Persons are constructing brand new machines, constructing emulators for them, or upgrading their hardware.
