If it is based on the MTU Visible memory board, try POKEing 49151 or 49152
(one of those...) with 1, 2, 3 or 0 (on Vismem - 1 is PET video, 2 is hi-res
video, 3 is both overlayed and 0 is none.)  And also in the MTU the video
memory started at $9000 and the bitmap was across 320 then down one, not a
variation of character mapping like on the 64.

If those jive I have a BASIC for it as well as a couple cool games (like a
really cool spacewar variant with startrek ships!)

Care to take on to the U.S. with you, that 8032 SK sounds kinda cool. (not to
mention the hi-res PET.)
