I think that only one completed prototype of this cartridge exists. The emulation was implemented in VICE about 5 years ago. Because Jim's hardware offers more flash (16MB instead of 4MB), it does not make that much sense to employ compression. The cartridge images can be banked directly from the flash, making the switching super-fast. My current software uses Pasi Ojala's PuCrunch decompressor code, which can take a few seconds to copy compressed images to the RAM expansion. >Is there any way to use Pasi Ojala's hires picture display and tools, >if someone could program a slideshow? Yeah, or why not fill the 16MB flash with a movie? I guess it might be feasible with a reasonable framerate if the VIC-I can directly access the external memory. Pasi, are you reading this list? :) I will try to implement the new cartridge emulation in VICE in the next couple of weeks.
