    Default Any ideas for inexpensive C-64 software?

    Hello all, I have been a 64 fan since the machines were brand new. However,
    my floppies seem to be dying over time. I have no local thrift stores anymore, and EBay is a risky idea, at best. (one auction was cancelled because of 'pirated' software included, but only After I had paid for it! Anyone have ideas about where to find relatively inexpensive C-64 software (mainly games and music programs)
    Here are a few that have died
    Knight Games (Mastertronics)
    3001: A sound oddessy (S&S Sound ??)
    BeachHead
    Xevious

    Any help would be great. Thanks!

    I think I may have a handful of original C=64 games. I'll see what I can dig up.

    Wow, Terry, Thanks for any help you could give. All my old C-64 owning buddies gave away or threw out all thier C-64 stuff And my Precious Salvation Army Thrift Store closed down years ago. (I scored 2 full C-128 systems....Computers, drives, and monitors, plus software (no games for $20.00 each. Those were the days

    P.S. Thanks for being so easy-going and kind on these forums....too many forums out there figure that any 'newbie' doesn't know his head from a hole in the ground, flame city...

    Ah, I hardly ever flame anybody, unless they really deserve it (Don't ask about trolling ng's tho, that's a whole 'nother topic). I'm basically a Passive-Aggressive type...

    I mean, I welcome the opportunity to interact with other like-minded individuals. If I didn't communicate with other geeks on a daily basis, I'd prob'ly go off the deep end (This time last year, I had all my furniture baracaded up against the front door, and I was "sleeping" with a loaded rifle in my bed every night, in case FEMA came to "disappear" me).

    Hi Terry, whoa..I take you're not joking about 'sleeping' holding a rifle....I guess maybe I am not so bad off, after all.....
    I used to dislike being called a geek, but getting older, I almost take it as a badge of honor.
    Out of curiousity what systems do you own?
    Hope the moderator doesn't toss this for being off-topic

    No, actually, I was off my meds for about four months last winter, and I was actually at that (dangerous) point of paranoia (I'm board certified, y'know).
