There is also a "bastard" known as the "Turbo Assembler 128". Click here to get it. It's actually an assembler (Turbo Illasm V3.0 by Lynchbit/Lepsi) for the C64 that copies itself into the appropriate place in RAM and then switches to 64-mode.
Last but not least, this is for you Hydrophilic, it's labeled Basic 9 or Basic 9.1. I have no idea what it is Click here to get it.
Ignorance is a precious thing. Once lost, it can never be regained.
Thanks for the analysis, buzbard! BASIC 9.1 really is a misnomer if adds no new commands (nor expandeds functionality of existing commands).
The F2 entry is very interesting.... it would be cool if the standard ROMs would allow this by (for example) holding down CONTROL during reset/power-up.
The F7 entry is also very interesting... when I'm not running an application or debugging my own programs, much (most?) of my time is related to disk-editor stuff! (Umm... I guess I *really* need to download this and give it a try?!)
> This is a ROM dump of an EPROM I found socketed in the "empty" socket of my C128. The label on the EPROM says:
> Super Chip...
Yesterday I made a run to South San Francisco to pick up a collection of Commodore and Amiga items being disposed of by a user. Among the equipment, there was a flat Commodore 128 with a Super Chip label of instructions pasted to the C128's casing. I haven't opened it up yet, but I hope it has a Super Chip... a chip that I have never seen before.
