That hack used lots of logic glue to implement the I/O port at locations 0 and 1, and to construct a clock signal that generated two clock pulses for the CPU during the CPU bus cycle halves. In other words, it ran the 6502 at 4 MHz for 2 cycles and at 0 MHz while the video chip was doing its transparent DMA. In this way, the computer ran at 2 MHz with the screen turned on. Another possibility is to use a C128 video chip to produce the exact equivalent of the C128 "2 MHz mode" on a C64. Marko - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
