Does it run in 22 columns, or did you expand the width somewhat to have room for more text per row? Maybe you can use a 40x24 program if you have the spare RAM for it. I would think so few VIC users can utilize all 35K of RAM expansion that if the driver code takes extra space, you might consider omit it. For example, the switchable 32K expansion I own sacrifices BLK5 if I want 3K expansion. I do own a multislot expander, so in theory I could get an external 3K expansion (or maybe take advantage of the memory inside my Forth cartridge?) in combination with the memory expansion to have access to 35K. Anyway, Groepaz could, if he owned his own machine, piggyback RAM inside the computer (possibly with an on/off switch) to get 3K expansion and at the same time make it incompatible (a true SuperVIC :-) with the rest of our VICs by letting the VIC-I access this extra memory. -- Anders Carlsson Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
