It\'s gotten so bad that Iam going to double post the ad and let people pay for their own shipping. This is the FREE shipping AD that will be shipped via USPS FIRST CLASS with a tracking number. If you need this QUICKLY, then I suggest that you purchase shipping (FedEx or UPS) if this is a time sensitive purchase via the other ad like this one. I will do everything possible to help track and update on this end, but I do not control the USPS (and it\'s been rather horrible lately).

Each item is professionally built and tested in our shop in Wilmington, Delaware. It is assembled with premium parts, most notably a REAL Texas Instruments 7406 HEX inverter for 100% compatibility with the Commodore 1541/1581.

This bundle includes a FULLY assembled and tested IO HAT for a Raspberry Pi 3B, 3B+ or 3A+. It also has a fully populated IEC bus (2) ports for daisy-chaining your other Commodore peripherals or another Pi1541 for two drive capability! For convenience, it has five navigation buttons and an OLED screen to display SD card contents. From this view, you can select and mount the disk images. Store ALL your disk images on one SD card, in multiple folders, etc. and enjoy complete access to your entire library!

Although pictured, it does NOT include a power cable, serial cable, or the Raspberry PI. Just the HAT, the power/data cable for the OLED and the OLED display for the Pi HAT.

Pi1541 provides you with an SD card solution for using D64, D81, G64, NIB and NBZ Commodore disk images on real Commodore 8-bit computers such as:

· Commodore 64

· Commodore 128

· Commodore Vic20

· Commodore 16

· Commodore Plus4


NOTE: If you need a sample setup of the options.txt file, please let me know and I will gladly help get that to you! You MUST have the following set correctly in the options.txt file or the OLED is not defined correctly (in fact the pi1541 Kernal would not even know an OLED is attached!):

// Sample options.txt configuration file for Pi1541// If you would like to change the drive number then specify it here (8 is the default)
//deviceID = 9// If you are using the split line hardware option (ie Option B) then you need to specify this option

//invertIECInputs = 1
//If you are using a 7407
//invertIECOutputs = 0// If you are using the Pi\'s composite video out then these options allow you to experiment with the display resolution
//ScreenWidth = 512
//ScreenHeight = 384// By default Pi1541 will search the root of the SD card for a ROM file and use this for ROM1.
// The first file found with either of the following names will be used; d1541.rom, dos1541, d1541II, Jiffy.bin
// You can override the default ROM1 by specifying it here
ROM1 = jiffy.bin
ROM2 = dos1541
// You can specify additional ROMS here (up to 7)
// You can then use the function keys (F1-F7) on the keyboard to change which one you would like to use (only in browse mode and not in emulation mode)
// You can also use the buttons to swap ROMs by holding down button 1 and pressing one other buttons 2-5
// .LST files can also specify one of these ROMS that will automatically be selected when the LST file is loaded.

// KY-040 Rotary Encoder Support
//
// If you would like to use a KY-040 Rotary Encoder for browse menu up/down
// and select, you can enable it here. Connect as follows:
//
// GPIO 22 - Menu up - Encoder pin A (CLK)
// GPIO 23 - Menu down - Encoder pin B (DT)
// GPIO 27 - Enter/Select - Encoder pushbutton (SW)
//
// ** Using an encoder is incompatible with the button remapping. You must
// use the default values of Enter=1, Up=2, Down=3, Back=4 and Insert=5.
//
// ** This has only been tested using a Raspberry Pi 3. Earlier models may
// or may not work as expected!
//
// Please see dmRotary.h for full implementation details.
