I have not tested the board on a 128, but I have been trying to keep the interface simple and use only signals that would appear on both machines. I will need the capability to "shut up" certain chips on the host machine so my card can respond in there place. This may be more of a challenge in the 128 and require more soldering. > As I see it, the only thing that would get in your > way > would be the C-128 MMU.

I'm curious how many people would be interested in an entire motherboard replacement instead? Maybe with the option to plug original chips into it?
