Hi all! Okay, yesterday I finished a custom version of pucrunch that is given a cartridge ROM image and a list of menu entry names and file names. Since the hardware is not ready yet, I've only tested it with small programs, so that everything (menu, decompressor and crunched data) fits in the $a000-$bfff area. I haven't tested the cartridge software on a real VIC-20 yet, but it works in VICE. There is a compile-time NTSC option. I'll release the complete thing when the hardware is finished. Now I can send it to interested individuals. There's little documentation, and it's mostly in Finnish for now. Those who are interested can download a PAL version of the menu from <URL:http://www.hut.fi/Misc/cbm/cart.prg.bin>. It requires RAM at BLK5 ($a000-$bfff). Keys STOP, 3 and 8 exit to BASIC in different memory expansion configurations (0k, 3k and 24k). The initial letters of the file names can be used to jump to an entry. With shift+letter, it jumps backwards. Home/clr and the cursor keys are assigned as well. Return starts the game. As you see, it's possible to enter aliases for the menu entries: "hi globe" is an alias for "hello world". In this way, you only need to store "vic rat race" and "radar rat race" once.
