this was a 'feature' on the AXLON so a nod to that
system is sometimes included in whodunit upgrades.
But the switch placement isn't in the standard lineup
of Newell schematics. I would like to know where it
is placed since this just makes them more flexible.
It does something different with the bank switching that works exactly like the 130XE.
Newell was full of it, it's not ANTIC compatible, and
it's not like the 130XE because of that. It's just
different from RAMBO scheme is the point to which
he was speaking in the first place when the 'exactly'
word got misused like a street walker. No FUCS given
to clarity which is the typical Newell way to roll.
It does misuse bit 5 and you can't make it ANTIC compatible
or hueyjones70 looses his 80 column AtariWriter
which was hard coded to misuse the street walker
all day long. Again typically Newell code. I'm not
surprised by the confusion, caused directly by Newell's
sloppy thought process and total lack of communications
skill set. Remember first with Newell always - no FUCS.
Is this part the issue with confusion?

Or is it the back side of the motherboard diagram with
the confusing trace cuts and jumper connections A-A,
B-B, C-C? Because some diagrams were cut off and didn't
include that last sentence where A-A, B-B and C-C were
made into jumper connections. IIRC the part where it
says 1200XL only is a diagram of the 800XL and if you
actually have a 1200XL, because of the no FUCS rule,
you'll have to figure out how it was done on the 800XL
first and then apply that insight to the 1200XL instead.
Give that some thought first, then investigate if you
can and get back to me if you think I can remember
this same tiger trap I fell into back in 94. I might
could help, but I'm not going to bother you if you
don't bother me first. Best of luck in any case.
