For testing you could consider to compile and run MAME with a debug switch set.

Thanks, but it's almost zero effort to test this directly in SDD 99.  ;)

In combination with a ROM contents check? You can then first check whether Exbasic is plugged in, and by monitoring the write accesses, whether it is in use. I don't know what kind of actions you consider possible for your application, whether hardware- or software-based.

 

Actually, now that I think of it, we don't even need to check if XB is plugged in, because Pac-Man has no BASIC.  :-D
