New Carts
Date: 2001-10-30 10:53:00

Hi All,

I just got in some new utility carts. I dump the ROMs eventually but I have
some interesting comments /questions:

This is by CardoCo. It has 3x2764 EPROMs and allows 61k programming in
BASIC, plus the usual BASIC tool enhancements. I've only the advert to go
by, claims BASIC 7.0 like commands. Does anyone have the documents for this?
even just a command list?

**A, Bee, C's**
This is another title for the Magic Voice cart. In fact it fails to boot
without a Magic Voice attached! Cart contains two 2364 equivalent ROMs.

**SnapShot v3.0 by LMS**
Does anyone know if this is upgradeable to v4 or higher by simply changing
the EPROM?

This was the main reason I paid more than my usual limit for the carts plus
shipping. It is an aftermarket EPROM version, 2764 chip. Interesting thing
though is the cart boots in normal cart mode with EPROM at $8000 rather than
using the Ultimax mode and switching over. This seemed very strange to me...
without a kernal ROM working (or installed) it fails to boot. Can anybody
think why they when this way rather than the Ultimax route and a memory
register to swap over once booted?
