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

I made a 4x MultiCart in the past: http://www.cpcwiki.eu/index.php/Multi_Cartridge   It's completely outdated since the C4CPC arrived.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.

Bryce.

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.

Try put it in one slot instead load it from meni.You don't need load it from menu, because it include c4cpc loader.


And not as you don,t try change the lower rom with external device. It should work fine

Oh, these Cartridges seem to work perfect with WinApe, but on the C4CPC they crash. I don't know why. Is there a size limit (128 KB or 256 KB) for Cartridge files for the C4CPC?

Oh, Arnold can do that too. I have to find a new release of it. Thank you for the hint.  :)  However none works with C4CPC firmware update 1.00.05 and Cartridge 1.0.2. That's the newest I found in the pages here on.

I downladed it in my c4cpc i think is in last firmware cpr 1.02. The cartridge loads no problem, so we have a mistery here.

mmm

You have another microsd to test maybe?.

Hxc loader is in cartridges,  to  opc artstudio you need the duke m4 for example.

What is the FW version of your card ? You can have get it by booting without sd card or on an empty slot.
I confirm that its hangs on the latest version of the firmware (1.0.6)

There is a 1.06? I in 1.05 I can view it with the cart when c4cpc shows loading... with my carts.

1_00_05 exactly.
