I have all parts and I have the schematics but not yet resoldered the board to the new Sch. So the new Sch would not be tested, but if you still like I can send them to you. > > After all by switching the _charrom_ to graphics mode.... > How this is done on the PET?

The 7th bit of the byte read from memory does not go to the charrom but directly to an exclusive-or with the shiftregister output that generates the pixel stream! So you have only 7 address bits for the charset, plus 1 bit for text/graphic and 1 bit for us/nationalized, plus 3 bit for the rasterline number, gives 12 bits that make 4kByte to fit in a 6332 _with_ the nationalized charset. > > But setting it on the nationalized one could probably switch between > > us and nationalized charsets (as the DIN key does in german C128 machines). > > I do have a German C128 as well. (They were much much cheaper then here in the > Netherlands) And the CHARROM is a 2764 = 8KB in my case! The C64/C128 doesn't have the hardware inverter, so you have to double the size of the charrom. Makes 4k for 256 chars * 2 (text/graphics) * 8 (bytes/ char) is 4k for the C64, and *2 for the nationalized charset in the C128 makes it 8k. hope it helps Andre -- Email address may be invalid.
