It is better than nothing... but silly. :) It crossed our minds to ask for a DMA type transfer so the VDC could go get its own data but that wasnít going to happen in the time we had. >Have you seen some of the things people do with the VDC? Yes there is some amazing stuff out there. I think the more problems a chip has the more beautiful things you can trick it into doing (reliability being a different issue) >I thought all VDCs in the C128 are able to work with 64K, you just have to >replace the 41416 DRAMs with 41464? I actually donít know for sure, just having heard people refer to the 64k it sounded like there was more functionality (I was gone from CBM by then). There were also differences in the C128D that they released vs. the one we had ready for release in the beginning, and I donít know what all of those differences are except what people mention (video noise, etc) Bil Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2013-10-22 18:03:17
