OK, you've convinced me! Mind you, I wasn't just thinking of a single position switch; a 512kb E(E)PROM or FRAM would give you 8 different 8kB ROMs. And I think a glued switch is definitely much geekier ;-) m ----- Original Message ----- From: <email@example.com> To: <firstname.lastname@example.org> Sent: Monday, May 14, 2012 6:56 PM Subject: Re: 6569 luminances On 2012-05-15, at 00:38, MikeS wrote: >> No - power-up with key-combination brings up menu where I can select ROMs >> to be used until changed.

But.. - the number of ROM images is virtually unlimited with today's capacities - if you have more than two, then one switch is not enough - images could be easily managed, (updated, added, replaced, deleted,..) - any combination of all ROMs could be used (potentially including standard cart ROM software) - it would be _much_ more elegant than a glued switch (and geeky ;-) > But a chacun son gout... ;-) Oui... > Doesn't the EasyFlash 3 already do that?

It indeed does something similar (for KERNAL only), but: - it is a cartridge that has to go into EXPANSION port (mine is long overloaded, while I would gladly replace power hungry ROMs) - it does the trick only for KERNAL - it is only for C64, whereas what I suggest would be adaptable for other 6502 systems with relatively low effort -- SD!
