Yes, that's it. Just program the 6510 to "I/O area off" (RAM or character generator ROM at $d000, it doesn't matter, since writes get "through" the ROM), and pull -GAME low when you want to access the I/O area. > But I remember that they had a real problem supporting the ASCII/DIN or > ASC/CC key on international C128 machines, because this key can only be read > through the processor port. Don't know how they solved this, because only the > 8502 can read that bit. Probably they switch back to the 8502 to read it. Don't they use an MMU adapter socket anyway in the C128? The CAPS LOCK key (I guess it is important also for non-localised units) could be wired to an I/O line on the SuperCPU cartridge. That is not a big internal modification.
