It's a little board that plugs into the 6502 socket and it has its own onboard 32kB RAM and 128kB ROM. Also the memory decoding is done on the board, so I don't have to depend on the capabilities of the host machine. In the PET, I mapped RAM to $0000-$7fff and ROM from $9000-$ffff, with a hole for I/O at $e800-$efff. > On the original system board, the A000-AFFF bank is not enabled.

Ah, that's the video problem you mention in the readme file! I could live with that, and I think it could be fixed rather easily by adding a wait routine for the v-blank, as it's present in the old 1.0 and 2.0 ROMs. Sounds like 4.0 has the "speed-POKE" built in already. I still wonder why the non-CRTC editor ROMs don't work in VICE as well, if I specify a non-CRTC 2001-8 machine. Nicolas Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
