#3588179 LTO Flash! - Intellivision Flash Cartridge Information

Posted by tokra on Mon Sep 5, 2016 3:23 PM

Just ordered mine from RetroGamesShop, only 4 left now :-) Luckily I got one of the last new CC3-carts back in October 2010. But it is so nice to see an Intellivision-multicart available again! Hopefully this breathes new life into the system!




#3289037 Mini VIC-20 32K RAM expansion hides in your cartridge port.

Neat expansion indeed! Will probably run anything for the VIC apart from Doom which needs 35K and as such cannot share the 3K-RAM-Block with $a000.

 

How difficult/more expensive would it be to create a "full" 35K expansion that does not share the BLK5 with 3K-RAM? I realize you use a 32K-RAM chip but how much more expensive would a 64K-RAM chip be even if you just use a little more of it?

 

Also: There is still an area of 2K at $9800-$a000 that can take RAM if you want to. I've hacked a 3K-expansion to do so. I use this together with a 32K-expansion and a 3K-expansion in a slot-expander, so effectively you can have a 37K expansion of your VIC :-) The area at $9800 can take a fast-loader like SoftJiffy (SJLOAD) and be nearly undisturbed by any other software.
