lately I have been trying to find Atari Ed Assem cartridge on eBay at a reasonable cost but to no avail. I want to get back into 6502 assembler (yes I know there are better assemblers the EA but all the beginner books use EA) and need the Ed Assem.
SO I got to thinking, it shouldn't be too difficult to convert the EA for booting off disk. It's just an 8mg cart. I have made a few attempts at converting to no success since I'm still learning about headers and such. I did find an .atr image that someone seems to have attempted it, but it never worked.
question is, is there any reason why this won't work and if it can could some covert a .rom for me and tell me how you did it for future reference.
PS also, I know I could just use an Altirra and the EA.rom (which I now do) but I like going old school with my 800xl from time to time complete with carts and disk.
