Hej allihopa! I bought a Datalux SV-703 cartridge expander in the hope of being able to use my RetroReplay/RR-Net combo together with my 512K REU, but so far they're not happy together. The expander has three ports and a switch that switches +5V (pins 2 & 3, which are shorted on the card edge), GAME (pin 8) and EXROM (pin 9). All other pins on all ports stay connected all the time. When I switch to the RetroReplay, everything works fine, but the computer doesn't recognise the REU. When I switch to the REU, the screen goes blank and the disk drive keeps spinning with the read LED on. The REU works fine when I physically remove the RetroReplay. The latest RetroReplay firmware is supposed to be REU friendly. Is it possible to hack the expander to make it work as expected? I use a PAL C128 with JiffyDOS if that makes any difference. /Niklas Ramsberg aka < . (:) Bacon < . Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
