Hej allihopa! Now that I have an EPROM programmer I want to stick EPROMs wherever I can. :-) So I was thinking of using the empty socket in the 1750 REU for a 27C512 chip where I can switch between two 32K banks. One would be used to house some utility for the C128, the other would hold a C64 program. Which jumpers should be closed (except for J2 which tells the computer it's a 32K chip) for the C128 to recognise the ROM in both native mode and C64 mode? Is it possible at all? I would like to use the C64 bank for Tron/FLT's version of Turbo Assembler, X-asm 3.3 (http://www.fairlight.to/docs/text/xass33.html). Is it possible to put an unmodified version of the assembler in the ROM, and have a routine in the ROM that transfers the assembler to its proper location in RAM and then starts it? Relocating it to run from inside the ROM is a little beyond my programming skills at this point. I read an old discussion on the list regarding KeyDOS and a request for a "light" version with Ramdos only. I would be very interested in having that in the C128 part of the ROM. Did anything ever come out of that discussion? I really don't feel any need for a full KeyDOS since I already have installed The Servant as an internal function ROM. /Niklas Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
