Ethan, could you please change your subscription address to the one you are posting from, or vice versa? When it comes to your question, the VIC-1001 and the VIC-20 use the same BASIC interpreter. Also the KERNAL error messages are in English. But what is interesting is that the serial timing is a bit different, as William pointed out earlier. Hmm, the guy who dumped the ROMs didn't say that he had any problems with disk drive access. I wonder what drive he was using.

I wonder how that affects the BASIC and Kernal ROMs. Unless the new messages and errors were exactly the same length in Kana as they are in English, I would think that other things might end up moved around a few bytes here and there. -ethan ===== Visit "The Seventh Continent" http://penguincentral.com/penguincentral.html __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
