I found a different kernal/basic rom at the U32 location in my C128. It is labeled "1988 SEW 128 PLUS". It has a wire going to the bottom of the keyboard. The alt-key seems to toggle fast mode and the function keys have new functions like @$, load, save, list, run, sys48979 and sys62368. Does anyone know what this is?
I run Linux Mint. I installed it with apt-get/package manager and placed the ROMs in ~/.vice/C64/ (basic, kernal, chargen, d1541II for example) or ~/.vice/C128/ for 128 ROMs. If ROMs are missing you will get a message about that if you start it from command line.
Back in the day, the killer app for the SuperCPU was GEOS.
Definitely. I don't think it is enough today though. There needs to be games but I don't think it is likely to happen. It is basically the C128 all over again. Who will invest in building something for an even smaller user base when it is already small for the C64?
As a side note, I tried to get GEOS running when I bought my RAMLink a couple of years ago and the three drive limit feels very limiting. Especially since the REU is treated like a drive as well. I gave up working with it. If it had been more flexible with the drives it would be a big improvement for me.
