Maybe I misunderstand the question. Yeah, and when switching to 65816 mode it can use a disk-loaded kernal in some other part of memory. Btw I know I'm feature creeping, but how hard would it be to add a mode where the video ram from bank 15 is seen at $8000, the rest is ram and some way of exiting that mode by accessing some address that is an I/O space of the original PETs? That way it would probably be rather easy to emulate a PET good enough to run most PET software. > >> On a real 6509, if you store $aa at $0 and read it back, do you > >> get $0a or $aa? > > It will read $0A. > > OK, thanks. That makes creating an 8 bit port version of the 6509 a > bit tougher, but maybe still doable. Are you thinking about access to 16MB instead of 1MB in 6509 emulation mode? I think that might need to have an enable/disable function as I'm sure there are software writing garbage to the upper 4 bits of $0/$1. -- (\_/) Copy the bunny to your mails to help (O.o) him achieve world domination.
