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.
Yes, there is a 1_00_06. It's identical to 1_00_05 except a tiny change for M4 compatibility that Duke fixed. So no reason to push an update.
I've just tested 1_00_03 to 1_00_6 and all crashed at some point.
I suspect an issue on the filesystem handling.
Some work for the week end ;)

Well at least is not my fault. :laugh:

But is curius, it never happend to me lol.

I have edited the wiki, so nobody have to  be lost asking about my cartridges.

In theory is possible change the roms, but to that is necesary delete something.

Thanks.
Will be purchasing a GX4000 homebrew cart in the near future and will see what can be done with this interesting piece of kit.

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?
If you want all of those on a cartridge then generally you need a patched os rom in the cart which will access &80-&ff rather than 0-16.
I started to make a program to do exactly as you want but I haven't finished it yet.

The problem I had was finding a place to insert the extra bytes, the OS doesn't have many bytes free :(

Looks that not all application ROMs for CP/M are really needed. Leave some of them away and you an add new ROMs.  :)

Thanks for the reply.


Just noticed it, looks like a way forward. Ian at Mutant Caterpillar has just finished resurrecting the 1st of four 6128/6128 Plus machines to be brought back to life. When this personal project is complete I have asked him to look at the GX4000 homebrew with the goal of replacing my existing Romboxes. This is were cpcwiki is invaluable - the wealth of knowledge available is superb. Cheers!
