Reading Room: Commodore Manuals

A friend of mine just sent me pack of DVDs containing a lot of Commodore & Amiga related stuff. Lots of books, magazines and user guides. She's a true retro gaming freak from Spain and she has a lot of stuff like that, so you can expect a huge number of books to be posted here. Let's start form a few commodore manuals.

  1. Thanks so much to both of you, this is reaaly great news!

  2. Is it possible to put it in one Package? I have no premium Account for Megaload. Or upload it to

  3. Why would you need a premium account for Megaupload? You can download all you want with any download manager and you can even resume!
    Is obvious you didnt even try it...

  4. wow has anyone ever seen a c64c look so white?!!!!
    thanks uploader

  5. @MAC:

    What you say is bullshit. On Free Account you have to enter Captchas and a long waittime before you can download something. So you need Hours to download everything.
    And also JDownloader doesn't work in the moment as download-manager.

    So please think before post. I do!


  6. Mr.Brain:
    1 Jdownloader is working perfect, no need to enter NOTHING. I am using it RIGHT NOW
    2. Long waiting time??? Just 45 secs to start the download, no waiting time AT ALL between downloads...
    All this as a free user obviously.

    So learn to read first and update your software before posting nonsenses.
    Also change your nick, doesnt fit you at all :)
    End of story


  7. @Mac

    1) Jdownloader doesn't work perfect. Look in the forum.

    2) Did anybody ask you for your comment. It was a wish and not a question that belongs to you. So please stop writing unasked bullshit and leave me alone. All what you wrote is absolute senseless for my question.

  8. Mr Brainless

    jDownloader works fine with Megaupload. Just put all the links in and let it do it's thing. Are you that impatient that you cant want 45 seconds between downloads (and jDownloader automatically starts the next download and enters the captcha code).

  9. Wonderful upload thank you so much!!!

    Im downloding with jdownloader at 300k speed from Mu and thereis no wait time or limit at all.
    Dont waste your time with this mindless brain guys.

  10. Great download here, I have some C64 into to programming books I could scan (don't think anyone would mind copyright wise, they're very old now), is there an interest for this kind of thing still?

    And PS: Downloaded above with jDownloader having has it recommended in the forums. Not had a single problem with - it works fantastically with mega-upload. Don't want to fuel the flames above but the comment about jDownloader not working is rubbish and I don't want people to feel like it's not worth using.

  11. Megaupload was taken over by the FBI a few weeks ago.
    Looks like these files need a new home, as all those links are dead.
