Hello Ruud, thanks a lot, really helpful! But let me clarify something, and I will cite my original post: "[..] the C-64 only displays colored squares instead of characters AND instead of sprites [..]" I never said this happens on startup - there you don't have sprites. This happens when I pop in a game cart. Otherwise, at startup I only see light blue squares on a dark blue background. NOw I don't mean to say that you aren't correct in dismissing my assumption, I just want to provide all the data. BTW, the game is actually somewhat playable, except that sprites are bigger squares while there are 4 stripes/areas filled with colorful squares. When there is no cart, at startup the light bue squares are located in those same 4 stripes/areas. Anyway, thanks a lot for a very informative post. mario -----Original Message----- From: ext Baltissen, R (Ruud) [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] Sent: 05 July 2003 15:00 To: 'email@example.com' Subject: RE: 85xx <------> 65xx Mutually replaceable?

No. In fact I never encounterd a brooken CHARROM in my life. If the CHARROM is brooken I expect allkind of garbage on the screen but in the standard sturt-up colors. Certainly NOT all kind of colored squares. Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
