The cart looks to be cemented together; I'll try a lot harder to find the docs before trying to disassemble it. In the mean time, I found a "SID Symphony" cartridge on eBay, which was interesting... what started this whole odyssey was that I have one of the "Dr. Evil" ones made by Kent Sullivan before CMD started distributing them, and it doesn't work any more. Kent's had a 9V battery inside that you had to change every so often by opening the cartridge; apparently the CMD ones (like I got on eBay) don't. I almost destroyed it trying to open it before I realized that :( but anyway, I heard Dr. J's amazing stereo SIDs again tonight for the first time in years. Absolutely unbelievable. I'm still looking for documentation on the carts that Mark Dickenson made, if anyone happens to run across it (I did find all the docs for the "Dr. Evil" version of the SID Symphony). And thanks for all the suggestions. P.S. The second SID maps in at $DE00 on all three carts. -- ================================================================== Glenn Holmer (Linux registered user #16682) ================================================================== We shall swim out to that brooding reef in the sea and dive down through black abysses to Cyclopean and many-columned Y'ha-nthlei, and in that lair of the Deep Ones we shall dwell amidst wonder and glory for ever. ================================================================== -H.
