For ROM expansions there is no problem with the ASIC, they are at different addresses. It's the same as before, just smaller and easier to assemble for me :)
I'm thinking about a RAM expansion that's ASIC compatible, but, more on that later. I have some soldering, testing and shipping to do now!

For RAM expansions please consider to fully implement RAM mode &C3 like Revaldhino did - just it case it's supposed to run with 464 / 664 computers.  :)

I plan to do things for 6128 and plus only. I don't have other hardware to test with. And what revaldinho did is fine for these usages anyway :)


But I will clearly advertise that it is not fully compatible with 464/664 to avoid any confusion.

Good to know. It's the era of CPC 6128 and 6128 Plus anyway.  ;D ;D ;D

Received my FlashGordon a few days ago and it is so good - thanks PulkoMandy.


I also tried it on my CPC464 and it works on that too. The 464 only initialises the first 8 ROM slots of course.  I've not given it much to do but the MAXAM1.5/Protext combination work just fine.


This is a great Wiki!

I think you can move the "booster" rom to slot 6 to get it to initialize the remaining roms in that, but I have not tried. I don't have a working 464 around.

It has not changed since the first post in this thread. 25€ including shipping.


All boards have been delivered for the previous batch but I can order and assemble more. It will take a few weeks to get the PCBs delivered.


I will make some slight changes to the board again to replace the jumpers with actual switches.

And for the management of ROMs you can use ROManager 2.37 (new update online) for FutureOS. See my homepage (signature).  :)

Hi, "booster" in slot 6 crashes my 464. No problem, I'll code something, test it and let you know. Thanks.
