that is a LOT cheaper than a v9990
Sure, and fully compatible with many existing systems like SG-1000, Coleco, MSX, MSX2, ...
I have done a V9958 video board prototype for the CPC around 5 years ago, and it cost me 15€ to done it.

As others have said, easy to do, but the I/O port addressing is the challenge. RC2014 modules only (usually) use address line A7 to A0, whereas CPC stuff seems to partially decodes lines A15-A8 as device enable and A7-A0 as register select.


My suggestion would be fully decode A15-A8 on the expansion board and then gate (probably just) /IORQ to the RC2014 slots so the boards will only receive the /IORQ signal when the correct high-byte is used.


In which case, does anyone have any suggestions as to what port address to use?

Nice idea. There is also Amibay which can be good if you are looking for retro stuff (they are not just for Amiga).

It could do with seller ratings btw :)

Well, let's see, 2>1 and 155m>104m so by the market's standards you're good to go.

Actually I was just reading yesterday how PS1 prices have started skyrocketing... Yeah, only 104 million units sold but hey, let's scalp.

I have a box of PS2's here. Any Idea when I will be able to consider those my retirement fund? They must be up next surely?

I see similar things with just the X-Mem on a Plus and I think it's actually power related - I see it more easily if I use a separate power adapter rather than the monitor which leads me to think it's a voltage drop caused by the extra power draw of the X-Mem and C4CPC combined. I have an MX4 on the way which I'll configure with external power to see if it affects things.


Good to hear that I’m not the only one. I might disconnect the internal drive and just use my externally powered HxC to see if it still happens.

Nice @kolleykibber
Which Client are you using ?
I've already included it, in the sofware documentation for USIFAC II.

kolleykibber made a really nice work with required software and documenting the hole procedure for anyone to use it!  ;)

The original XBOX / PlayStation.. can still be acquired for "nothing" nowadays. Just wait 5-10 years from now and you will see the prices starting to raise once again.
