On the front of my Master ROM Cartridges there's a label that says ..... "Accepts 2 x 27128 (32k) and 2 x 27513 (128k)" Presuming there's an error and that should be 27512s, but if so, can I just bung in a pair of 27512 ROMs and they'll work ? If so, do they overwrite other ROMS slots 4 - 7 (as the ...

Re: Compact Flash on a master 512

XP won't read the card directly, you have to save the ADFS image and then "restore" it to the card. So, if you want to add stuff to your card .... (1) Bung the card into your PC (2) Do a CF backup (3) Mount the backup you just made in(2) in ADFS explorer (4) Make changes & save (5) Restore the saved...

That's a good start, needs to refer to the chips by IC number and type though. It really hard to read the IC numbers on the boards, and having to look at diagrams is a pain.

6502 Second Processor Elite

Is there a version of 6502 Second Processor Elite that doesn't have the bazillion credits and fully loaded Cobra in the default Jameson profile ?
