32KRAM Valid?

Recommended Posts

For the hell of it, I tried 32KRAM as configuration in 7800 Basic, and it works, but is it valid?
If so, is all 32K ROM available to use at the same time?

 

Why 32K?
I'm interested to see what kind of game can be made with the limitations in 1984.

The RAM is just in case I need more display object per zone.

Sure, it's a valid format. The ROM in 32k+ram is the same as plain old 32k format. (i.e. no banking required)

This is the 16KB RAM @ $4000 - $7FFF and 32KB ROM @ $8000 - $FFFF layout, right?

...if you're going for an "affordable during this time" challenge, you may want to restrict yourself to only 2KB of this.
