    Gear Commmodore 128: Switching from C128 mode to C64 mode

    Hi,

    I have just hooked up again my Commodore 128 from my childhood. I remember there was a way to have it switch to Commodore 64 mode so that it can play C64 games, but I can't remember how. I tried holding down the Commodore key but that did not work. Anyone know?

    You have to hold the Commodore key while the computer is booting up. Another way to go to C64 mode is to type "Go 64" (or "Go 64!") when you see the BASIC screen.

    A third way I think is to boot the Commodore 128 with a Commodore 64 Cartridge plugged in

    Useful information (I just got a C128 and am probably going to use it in C64 mode a lot)
