Adding more games to a 6128+ system cartridge
« on: 20:24, 12 June 16 »
Hiya!


is there an easy way to use a bigger eprom in a 6128+ cartridge (like a 27C512) and have more games available in it, accessing them with |GAME1 .... |GAME4 or something similar?
I have opened my cartridge and plan to replace the rom data with redbox's patched rom , so I thought to ask if anyone made a version of it with more games or something... it would be nice to have stuff like BB4CPC or R-Type128 in there too  ;D





TIA for any info!

I'm sure someone will answer you soon enough  ;D

I think most people use the C4CPC now, I might be wrong!  ::)

C4CPC - CPCWiki

I wish someone would make R-type 128k cart myself ( maybe the guys who made it ) so I could play on my 6128 plus from cart.

That's the right answer. An absolutely essential purchase for any Plus or GX4000 owner.

yep sure, it's in the plans to get a C4CPC but in the meantime since I'm going to desolder that eprom I am asking if there is a possibility to get more from it , burning a bigger eprom with more stuff would be a no-brainer IF it is possible  ;)


@chinnyhill10
great yt channel btw, in the past ~3 weeks I have watched every cpc related content you have - really enjoyed them since quite honestly I am late to the cpc party  ;D

You can put a 512KB eprom there but you'll have to set up the right links in the cartridge board so the computer knows the right size.

yes I have read about that (and Bryce's 4x128kb project as I did search about that before posting), what I am unsure is how to organize the data inside the 512kb...
I guess this hasn't been brought up before so maybe I'll just have to settle for the patched Burning Rubber rom instead
