Commodore 64 Tribute to the Sens

Imagine--

The year is 1984. The Commodore 64 is the top of the market for home computers in sales because of its combination of affordability and power.

Somehow you enter a time warp into 2013, and the Ottawa Senators now exist as a hockey team, and you want to make a tribute to them. But your computer cannot view jpgs or even gifs. What do you do?

Well, this is one possible solution to this purely hypothetical situtation. (gosensgo.d64 should be about 171K in length)

To use the disk image, download and run a Commodore emulator. (I'd recommend VICE.) After you unzip it and set it up, you're looking for the x64 emulator. It should give you a screen which looks something like this:

Then go to the File menu, Attach Disk Image. Browse to wherever you saved "gosensgo.d64".

Once the file's attached, you can simply type

LOAD"*",8 (note that on the emulator, these keys are found where you'd find them on the C64... so " = shift-2, and * = \. Just in case.)

then wait, then type run.

Press a key to move on from the pictures.

Enjoy!

Or, alternately, you can watch this YouTube video I made:

If the Sens make it through the first round, I will update and enhance this program...
