Quote from: robcfg on 20:38, 27 June 16Habi managed to use the diagnostics board with a game rom instead, but nothing like a CPC rombox.
Quote from: Habi on 18:54, 28 June 16There is no need for a ROMBox, because that's not how the PCW works...
Quote from: TFM on 19:25, 28 June 16Excuse me, can I please use my computer in the way I want? Thank you! And therefore there *IS* a need for a Flash-ROM expansion at least for me and few others who are interested in boosting this nice machine a bit.
Quote from: Bryce on 21:52, 28 June 16From a speed and comfort perspective, a ROMBox is always a cool expansion to have. However, they become a bit non-practical when the computer has multiple times more RAM than a ROM can hold. With the CPC it was already borderline: 64K/128K RAM, but each ROM has only 16K. Still there were 16K games, but when you then move up to computers with 512K or more the ROM makes much less sense. Yes, you could make a ROMBoard with 16x 512K per ROM, but at that stage the price just can't be justified.Bryce.

Quote from: TFM on 20:38, 28 June 16To patch CP/M could be even more easy compared to CPC (according to SyX, he told that the Joyce CP/M has this nice 'driver feature').
