C64 Diagnostic Cartridge

Date: 2001-08-29 06:02:34

Hi All,

Does anyone have information about these types of cartridges?

I have heard of some which have an "octopus" cable which plug into the ports
and test their functionality. Others I believe are just a cartridge.

I can see how a cart might detect which RAM chip is blown or whether a CIA
of VIC has a problem, but if the PLA is blown will it detect anything? A
cart failing to boot could be lots of other things too....

Are these things worth the money?
