Hallo David, > Keep this connected in case you need it for ram refresh or a clock. Yes, but CLK2 is also used to enable buffers and to latch data.

The 541 isn't a latch, but a buffer. The difference with the 244 is that the inputs are on pin 2-9 and the outputs on pin 11-18. An other difference is the way it is enabled. > However, if a cart-port device needs to DMA from/to the I/O region (i.e. the > cart slot), the data bus needs to be disconnected.

Is there a "UltiMax for dummies" available somewhere, please? Groetjes, Ruud http://Ruud.C64.org - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
