So I presume all > well written software should run on such an altered C=. A programming error could cause the mirror areas to be written. The control registers for the internal RAM expansion in my C128 (sitting at $d700-$d7ff) interferes with some C64 software, probably because they are trying to write to color RAM ($d800-$dbff) but there is an index overflow. Therefore it is a good thing to have some way to disable the control register. In that expansion, I implemented it by connecting an IRQ output of the 6821 PIA to one of its active-high CS inputs. I don't remember if I had to wire something extra to make sure that interrupts can be triggered on the chip by software. Marko - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
