Hello Professor, PD> Your remark about the documentation lacking clarity is accurate. Novice PD> users have some difficulty learning how to put it to use. ehrm?! the docs for "users" (ie not coders) is much more detailed and has less errors than the original "AR6" documentation ever had. whats hard with plugging the cartridge in the port and using it? (as for "novice" users, most that contact us didnt even read the documentation - so thats what i usually advice doing first ;=P) PD> Advanced PD> users wish for more information to take better advantage of the PD> cartridge. like? remember, you will never get that information if you dont ask for it ;) "i want more info" doesnt help with making docs better at all (infact such kinda posts are just ignored). however, for an advanced user that wants to program the hardware by himself (what else would be "take better advantage of the cartridge"?) there is all required info in the hw-doc by jens schoenfeld. if thats not enough for you - well, think about the "advance" part once more ;=) (teaching you hardware-programming in general is beyond our scope, we just give out the info required for someone who is already able to do it) however, you may ofcoz always ask on the list. PD> As to whether it's worth the money, I think it is. To get definetly :) most valuable part of cbm-equipment i bought during the last 10 years ;=) PD> your questions answered about RR you ought to subscribe to the RR mail PD> list: PD> http://www.webnova.de/mailman/listinfo/retroreplay PD> The Retro-Replay main page is found here: PD> http://www.ar.c64.org/ PD> Retro-Replay documentations may be found here: PD> http://www.jschoenfeld.com/support/Inside_Replay.txt mind you this is ONLY hardware-docs, totally unrelated to the rr-ROM (ie firmware) which explained on the rr main page additionally there is some silversurfer programming info on http://ar.c64.org/silversurfer/ -- Best regards, groepaz mailto:email@example.com Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
