Hm, what I mean is the following. 1. In graphics mode (with uppercase letters and graphics characters), everything is the same as with later models. This is the power-up mode. 2. In lowercase mode (with uppercase and lowercase letters), the upper- and lowercase characters are swapped. poke 59468,14, if I recall right. This means, that if you type the word "Hallo", you must type unshifted H shifted allo In other words, the abbreviation for the LIST command looks like Li instead of like lI. (Doesn't Li look much better? I thought so.). iF YOU ARE RUNNING PROGRAMS MADE FOR pet MODELS 30XX OR LATER, TEXT ON THE SCREEN LOOKS LIKE THIS ;-) and the other way around too. (perhaps this is where BiFF started with computers?) At our computer club we had one old PET with such a charrom but otherwise it had 2.0 ROMs. I suspect there were more such machines. > There now exist two "new" PET character generator ROMs on ftp.funet.fi. > One is the PET 2001 character generator, and the other is the SuperPET > character generator, which seems to have some interesting characters for > more advanced mathematical operations.
