But then PET2001 fires up in graphics mode, which is unusable with the swapped chars. Are you sure about that?

So 8096 works, only 8296 must wait for the next release. > Another thing. This weekend I got a 8032 (a square one, finally) with I only got one 8296D from Ruud lately, and using parts from another of those boards I made it work again. And many thanks for los96, although I didn't have the time to check it so far. Andre BTW: The "killer-poke" should be Poke $e842,62 (this is VIA DDRB) This sets VIA PB5 to output. (Normal content is 30, + 32 for bit 5) The two pokes below should speed up the screen output if it doesn't kill the machine, you are warned: Poke59458,62:Poke59456,255-32 -- Email address may be invalid.
