6128 Plus cartridge
« on: 08:28, 09 July 17 »
My 6128 Plus has a Rombox attached with ParaDos, Protext, Discology, D.E.S., Utopia and DosCopy installed. A 2nd 6128 Plus (backup machine) has ParaDos on cartridge. My question is this - can anyone install those 6 programs on a cartridge? And if so - how much will this cost?

I presume it could be done using a big rom, a specific cart and some dip switches like this sort of thing http://retroelectronik.com/en/xin1-multigames-cartridge/75-gx4000-homebrew-player-eprom-to-cartridge-adapter.html?search_query=gx4000&results=4

  • It's not broken, it just hasn't been fixed yet.

I made a 4x MultiCart in the past: http://www.cpcwiki.eu/index.php/Multi_Cartridge   It's completely outdated since the C4CPC arrived. However, cartridges only allows for certain ROM numbers to be used and these are different to the ROM numbers used by a ROMBoard, so you may have issues with ROMs that require a particular ROM number to be used.

The c4cpc is a much neater solution IMHO. If you can get the carts you require engineered then thatbwould be the way I'd go.

The C4CPC is probably the best choice. Dragon once made a Cartridge with lots of ROMs in it, so it is possible. IIRC this did contain ParaDOS, CP/M Plus, FutureOS and some other ROMs. I don't remember a link though.

I was wondering if there was somewhere we could download these roms in cart format for the C4CPC?
